Liverpool are three wins away from the championship (Part 1)

Against Bournemouth 2-1 in the 29th round on March 7, Liverpool were one step closer to winning the Premier League.

Sadio Mane is the hero of Liverpool’s victory. He passed the ball to teammate Mo Salah equalizing 1-1, shortly after the home team conceded. The Senegal striker then scored the goal himself, with a forte acceleration, beating the Bournemouth keeper to set the result 2-1 when the clock just scored 33 minutes.

The ungainly Van Dijk, Salah, Firmino and even Mane made Liverpool unable to score more goals in the remaining time. A 2-1 score means Liverpool have conceded for the first time and scored less than three goals against Bournemouth, after firing 17 goals and keeping clean sheets during the last five encounters. Coach Klopp is also more or less not satisfied, considering the babbling of the home defense.

However, after all, Liverpool can still smile the way the players share the joy with the fans at Anfield after the game. After two consecutive defeats, 0-3 at Watford in the Premier League and 0-2 at Chelsea at the FA Cup, Klopp’s teachers and students have returned to winning.

Not only being a little closer to the first Premier League title in history, defeating Bournemouth is also the spiritual boost needed to give Liverpool more confidence to prepare for the big battle in the Champions League mid-next week. Thursday 12/3, they will host Atletico Madrid with the task of reversing the situation after losing 0-1 away away in the first round of 1/8.

The desire to win after losing three of the last four matches makes Liverpool enter the game as if to eat the opponent alive. After only about five minutes of play, they were in complete control of the situation and at times made up to 9 in 10 Bournemouth players – not counting the goalkeeper – to retreat to the backyard to support.

In the midst of that ebbiness, Liverpool was poured into a cold water right after ninth minute. After a cross by Mane’s cross, the visitors counterattacked quickly. Host midfielder Joe Gomez made a mistake during a dispute with Callum Wilson, allowing him to pass to the right. Bournemouth coordinated another two beats, before Lerma stretched for Wilson to close the ball. VAR intervened, but still recognized the opener for the away team.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Barca is facing a personnel crisis for Champions League

Injury and a penalty card could cost Barca up to three key positions after a 1-1 draw at Napoli’s Champions League Stadium on February 25.

Busquets and Arturo Vidal, because of a card, will be absent when Barca reunite with Napoli in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 at the Nou Camp on March 18.

Busquets received a yellow card after 49 minutes for kicking in the ball under Dries Mertens. But this card means that the Barca midfielder has enough penalty cards, and therefore, will have to sit out in the second leg.

Vidal was shown a yellow card for dissent after a dispute with left-back Napoli Manuel Rui on the 89th minute. But due to the reaction, Barca midfielder was penalized by the referee Felix Brych for a second yellow card, indirect red card.

In stoppage time, Gerard Pique got hurt after a block in the penalty area. The Barca center-back grimaced and rolled to the field because of the pain in his left ankle, then replaced with Clement Lenglet shortly thereafter.

Barca is waiting for the evaluation of Pique’s injury department. In the worst case, the center-back may have to miss El Clasico at Real Madrid on March 2, and the second leg against Napoli.

The defending champion La Liga is truly becoming a miniature hospital with a total of 29 injuries and 16 players affected since the start of the season. The three most injured players are Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba and Ousmane Dembele. Each player has three times. The most serious cases were Neto (broken left arm), Suarez (knee) and Dembele (hamstring). All three players have to go to the operating table and take a long rest.

Barca currently has only 18 players from Team A that are fit to play. When needed, coach Quique Setien was forced to call some more players from the B team such as Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig, or Alex Collado. The Nou Camp host has three rare players who have not yet worked with the doctor, Frenkie De Jong, Antoine Griezmann and Sergio Busquets.

However, Busquets, in all circumstances, Barca will still fight hard for the goal of victory.

 

 

 

 

Tottenham lost 0-1 in the first round of 1/8 Champions League

He played on home field, Tottenham runner-up lost to Leipzig 0-1 in the first round of 1/8 Champions League on February 19.

The only goal came in the first 15 minutes of the second half. Left-back Ben Davies made a mistake, before illegally stopping Konrad Laimer in the penalty area. Referee Cuneyt Cakir immediately pointed to the 11m mark. VAR team agrees with this decision. In a series of brainstorming matches, Timo Werner finished exactly, bringing the victory for Leipzig right on the pitch of Tottenham.

The goal is a reward for what Leipzig has been offering since the beginning of the match. They entered the game better, having four finishes in the first 10 minutes, in which a ball hit the post after leaving Angelino’s leg. “Rooster” kicks hard, to block the excitement of the visitors but failed. Hugo Lloris constantly worked, and repeatedly denied the efforts of Werner striker – Patrik Schick. However, until the challenge on the 11m mark, the Tottenham captain gave up.

After taking the advantage, Leipzig dropped the squad to low to preserve the gap. They accepted to give the game to the home team and only had two more finishes in the remaining 30 minutes. Jose Mourinho’s army is on the rise, but mostly relying on fixed situations to turn things around. Their best chance came in the 72nd minute, when Giovani Lo Celso took a beautiful free kick from about 25m. Goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi gently touched the ball, sending it to the post.

Lacking both the best strikers, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, Jose Mourinho arranged a 4-4-2 layout, with the main strikers Dele Alli and Lucas Moura. Last season, Moura excelled in this position, culminating in a hat-trick against Ajax in the semi-final second leg, helping Tottenham win backwards. The intention of the “Special One” is to use fast, direct counter-attacks, when Leipzig accrues, in order to maximize the speed of Moura.

The performance in the first half was exactly as Mourinho predicted. Leipzig, with full of mighty soldiers, actively controlled the ball with three central midfielders. Tottenham avoided confrontation in the middle and always sought to develop the ball to the front lines as quickly as possible.

Losing 0-1, Tottenham has much work to do in the second leg after three weeks. In the last few seasons, the upstream in the Champions League knockout stages, after losing the first leg, is not uncommon. It was the “Rooster” fans who tasted that feeling last season, when Mauricio Pochettino’s teachers and students eliminated Ajax in the semi-finals.

Eriksen is the most valuable player in Serie A

Christian Eriksen quickly surpassed Dybala and Ronaldo to take the number one spot, after switching from Tottenham to Inter.

According to Transfermarkt transfer pricing website, Eriksen is currently worth $ 105.5 million. This is the highest level for a player in Serie A today, more than 100 million of Dybala (Juventus) and 94 million of Lautaro Martinez (Inter).

Matthijs De Ligt, Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus), Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli) and Romelu Lukaku (Inter) came in fourth with 88 million. Followed by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio), Miralem Pjanic (Juventus) came in eighth place with 82 million, and Marcelo Brozovic (Inter) ranked tenth with 70 million.

Transfermarkt’s calculation of transfer value is based on age, style and future development potential. Accordingly, at a ripe age and at 27, Eriksen is one of the top players in the world. Ronaldo has a more outstanding performance, but is underestimated because he is about to turn 35.

Inter only cost about 22 million to buy Eriksen. Tottenham sold him for a much cheaper price than the value because there was only half a year left on contract. If waiting until the summer of 2020, the English club will have to leave Eriksen on a free transfer.

After arriving at Inter, Eriksen signed a four-and-a-half-year contract. The Danish midfielder receives the top salary in Serie A with about $416,000 per week.

The early purchase of Eriksen also proves Inter’s determination in the Serie A 2019-2020 race. In the Top 10 Serie A value players, Inter and Juventus all have four positions.

Juventus is leading Serie A with 51 points after 21 matches, three more than Inter. Lazio ranked third with 46 points, but played less than one match. The remaining 17 laps are expected to have more interesting developments with the three horse race.

After the Champions League final in early June, Eriksen sent a message to Tottenham that he wanted a “new challenge”. The Danish midfielder has played six seasons for the north London team and has only one year left to sign. This is the time Tottenham needs to sell before it is at risk of losing.

In six seasons at Tottenham, Eriksen has not won a title. The team twice reached the final, but lost in the 2014-2015 League Cup and the 2018-2019 Champions League.

In the opposite direction, Tottenham aimed Argentine midfielder Giovani Lo Celso of Real Betis as Eriksen’s replacement.

Manchester City beat Man City 1-0 in the second leg of the League Cup second leg at Etihad, but that was not enough for the “Red Devils” to reach the final when they lost 3-1.

76 minutes, MU only played with 10 people when Matic received a second yellow card from the referee Kevin Friend. Man City with an advantage over people also can not take advantage to score goals. In the 84th minute, Aguero put the ball into the visitors’ net but like Sterling in the first half, the goal was not recognized for offside.

Guardiola proposed to kick it back in the FA Cup

Man City coach Pep Guardiola sees dropping the FA Cup replayings as a solution for English football to reduce the current competitive density.

“League Cup and FA Cup will still take place, but we should skip the replay, and there are fewer teams from the First Division or Premier League,” Guardiola said January 24.

The manager of Man City has repeatedly expressed concern about the players having to play too much. And Guardiola continued to speak, ahead of the FA Cup match against Fulham on Sunday 25 January – the 37th match of Man City from the beginning of the season.

However, Guardiola also asserted that in any case, Man City will always follow the FA schedule. He said: “I always try to be honest and answer questions, but I don’t think about what the FA has to do to reduce the current harsh schedules, it’s not my job. to get our team better every day. When the FA decided they had to play these games, those matches, we complied. ”

Man City are competing on all four fronts this season, including the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup and the Premier League. But the chances of Guardiola’s teachers and students defending the Premier League title are slimmer. After 24 rounds, they are 16 points less than the top of Liverpool – the team still has a match yet to play.

Liverpool lost just two points from the start of the season, and are believed to be able to break the championship record with 100 points set by City two years ago.

Man City used to set records when some people thought that the score record in the Premier League was impossible to break. Sooner or later.” Man City ‘s record will also be surpassed, this season, or later. History always shows that, “Guardiola said casually when talking about Liverpool’ s chances.

Real took three points mainly thanks to two flashy moments of Casemiro, who played in a defensive midfielder position.

The midfield set up to help Real win is becoming familiar, especially when the frontline lacks many important players. Due to injuries, Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale have not been able to play yet. Karim Benzema also only came in from the middle of the second half. This is why Zinedine Zidane coach Lucas Vazquez started with Luka Jovic and Rodrygo.

Still, Real is making a difference by individuals who know how to turn the game around. Casemiro did this in the 57th minute with the opener. After receiving Jovic’s heel strike, the Brazilian midfielder went down to the ball to cross the goalkeeper Vaclik.

After the opening goal, Casemiro also played a hero with a goal to set the victory in the 69th minute. Sevilla’s defense was not tight, leaving the Brazilian midfielder comfortably headed in the middle of the box after a cross from the right.

Between the two tables of Casemiro, Sevilla equalized a goal thanks to De Jong. This is also a rare mistake moment of Varane defender – Militao. El Haddadi fell, but promptly pushed the ball to De Jong into the penalty area and shot into the far corner to beat Courtois.

The goal from De Jong’s curling shot was the 13th Real goal in 20 matches from the beginning of the La Liga season. Compared to Atletico Madrid, the team with the best clean sheet, the Bernabeu hosts only one more goal.

After the only mistake, Real crafts were reorganized enough to protect the results. In addition, the midfield also maintained the pressure and adjusted the tempo of the match, contributing to making Casemiro a hero.

Winning an important match, Real climbed to the top with a distance of three points more than Barca. In the late match against Granada, Barca need to win to regain the number one position. In this match, coach Quique Setien will debut the fans after replacing Ernesto Valverde.
