“United’s late defeat is big jolt for Jose”
“…But Willian puts Chelsea through”
“Utd made to sweat on lost 16”
on the left, we have:
“Rose: My anger at derby axe”
“Danny Rose has publicly confessed that he was fuming at being axed for last Saturday’s big derby with Arsenal, he said: ‘I was angry about not being involved. I want to play a part in as many games as possible.”
“Sloppy United crash in Basle”
“United needed just a draw against the Swiss champions, whom they defeated 3-0 at Old Trafford, to secure top spot in group A, but they wasted numerous chances and Basle made them pay with a last-minute strike from Michael Lang.”
Manchester United is still through to the round of 16, however, the top spot in the group is not at stake.
“Late goal denies United”
and down here we have:
“Everton fury at two-match ban”
“The law is a Niasse”
“Oumar dive ruling ‘dangerous’ to the game says, Unsworth”
The Everton striker Oumar Niasse is the first Premier League player to be banned for “cheating” by diving.
The FA stated:
“Everton’s Oumar Niasse will serve a two-match suspension with immediate effect after his denial of an FA charge of successful deception of a match official was rejected.”
“It was alleged he committed an act of simulation which led to a penalty being awarded in the fifth minute of the game against Crystal Palace.
“He denied the charge. However, it was found proven following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing.”
And of course, the club was outraged by this and the coach David Unsworth said:
“I think these people [the FA] will be very busy,”
“It’s a dangerous precedent that could be set if decisions are given against you which are debatable.”
“Juve, you’re there!”
Dybala threatens the last-gasp winner: it ends 0-0 against Barça.
They could even reach the Round of 16 with a loss in Athens.”
“Cholo breaks the Giallorossi in Madrid with goals from Griezmann and Gameiro, but the 2-0 against Atletico is not too painful: qualification is very close”
“What if 4-4-2 was the right system? Only the real Juve will know”
“Barcelona are not irresistible and without Messi in the starting XI it gets easier, but the Bianconeri didn’t make anything good of it.”
“Roma slips in Madrid, qualification is postponed”
“A great goal for a miracle”
“Griezmann opens the way to hope with an impressive overhead kick. Gameiro scored the second. Now, to win in London and a point for Qarabag in Rome.”
and up top we have this:
“Ramos and Madrid, with another face”
“The captain is testing the mask today, Zidane can breathe again because the reinforcements arrive: Keylor, Kovacic, and Bale returns to the group”
“A very solid Barça is already in the round of 16 and finishes first in the group”
“The best goalkeeper in the world”
“An imperial stop from Ter Stegen qualifies Barça to the second round of the Champions League as first in their group.”
“Leo Messi started the game on the bench and Valverde switched him on in the 55th minute with Mestalla on his mind”
There is a big game waiting for Barcelona this weekend against Valencia, and that’s what they are referring to, and can we talk about this for a second? The best goalkeeper in the world?
They have to be talking about Buffon right, but it doesn’t seem like it. Is Ter Stegen the best goalkeeper in the world? let me know what you think about that.
“Paris is a party”
“Beautifully led by Neymar (two goals and a decisive pass), the Parisians with the biggest win in their Champions League history. Only a defeat by at least four goals against Bayern on the last day can prevent them from finishing first in the group.”
“PSG-Celtic: Paris sends another strong message to Europe”
“PSG atomized Celtic at Wednesday night at the Parc des Princes. Led by an excellent Neymar, the players of the capital won 7-1 in front of their home crowd. A demonstration that places them in an ideal position to finish first in Group B.”
Kicker in Germany who have switched the colours of the two Ruhr clubs with each other:
“Will blue become the new yellow?”
“The Dortmund – Schalke Derby: A Change of power is possible!”
The Ruhr area in Germany is a giant polycentric urban are with a bunch of big cities, such as Dortmund, Essen, Bochum, and Gelsenkirchen where Schalke is from.
And as you may already know, Borussia Dortmund have been the biggest club in this area for the last 8 years.
Schalke is currently in 2nd place while Dortmund is in 5th place with 3 points margin. And if Schalke wins, that gap will be six points and with Dortmund in bad shape at the moment that gap could grow even bigger.
“Bosz in front”
“The frustration is written in his face: The BVB coach Peter Bosz has remained sleepless after his last five games”
“Dortmund is in crisis before the derby against Schalke. It shows more and more: The Dutch coach Peter Bosz was the wrong choice”
