Trophy up for grabs with the Dutch of Feyenoord Delirium at the Olimpico: Roma, 31 years after the last time, returns to center the final of a European cup. Mourinho, on May 25 in Tirana, will be able to add the Conference League to his infinite showcase: between Roma and the trophy only Feyenoord remains, who in the other semifinal resisted (0-0) in another pit, that of the Velodrome of Marseille, after the 3-2 of the first leg. The return semi-final against Leicester was decided by Tammy Abraham with a header from a true center-forward after 11 minutes: then, a masterpiece of defensive strength, signed by José Mourinho. The Portuguese coach, who had left the half team against Bologna on the bench, re-proposed the best Roma, with Pellegrini and Zaniolo behind Abraham, Oliveira and Cristante in the middle and Zalewski on the left. The start was fierce: at 7 ‘, Pellegrini on a free kick engaged Schmeichel, the protagonist of a defective but effective save, then, on the following corner beaten by Pellegrini himself, Smalling sent a high header. Another corner in the 11th minute, but this time a winner: cross from the captain and header under the crossbar by Abraham, who ruled Ricardo Pereira scoring the ninth goal in the Conference League (fifth European game to score at the Olimpico) and the 25th ° overall of his season. Roma tried to exploit the rampant enthusiasm of the Olimpico and a bit of bewilderment by the Foxes: another insertion by Pellegrini and a response in bagher by Schmeichel. Leicester, on 13 ‘looked for the door with Dewsbury-Hall, had time to raise the center of gravity, but the three in front had to collide with a super Smalling who led a defense in which Mancini, in the final of first, was got his twentieth yellow card of the season for a savage on Dewsbury-Hall.

Incredible: Cristiano Ronaldo’s manchester united loses 5-0 to liverpool

A rampant result at Liverpool’s Old Trafford, which effectively ousted Manchester United from the championship fight and regained second position (-1 from leaders Chelsea) against City. Not even 5 minutes of play and the Reds are already ahead: Milner’s filter for Salah who serves Keita centrally, good at getting in behind Shaw and chilling De Gea with an unstoppable low shot. Question and answer between 9 ‘and 11’: first Bruno Fernandes shoots sensationally high with his right face to face with Alisson, then Firmino’s left cross is blocked in two halves by De Gea. Anyway Diogo Jota thinks about signing the goal of doubling at 13 ‘: mess between Maguire and Shaw, Keita’s opening for Alexander-Arnold and cross that crosses the area and reaches the far post, where the Portuguese is very good at reiterating on the net in split. Cristiano Ronaldo is totally out of the game and can be seen in the 22nd minute, when a counterattack by the Red Devils ends with an imprecise conclusion from the star.

A violent blow from Greenwood forces Alisson to take a plastic flight. On the opposite front De Gea saves his team from the definitive capitulation, hypnotizing Salah in low output, but the Egyptian’s trio is postponed only at 38 ‘: Salah, Firmino and Diogo Jota talk in a handkerchief, then the opening for Keita who serves the number 11 for the crazy 0-3 at Old Trafford. With half-time almost upon us, there is also the time for Salah’s double all undisturbed at the suggestion of Diogo Jota. It is part of the second half and Salah goes for a hat-trick with a delicious touch below after Henderson’s deep throw. 0-5. It pours (it is appropriate to say) in the wet for United: after the goal of the flag canceled to Cristiano Ronaldo, the Var also intervenes on the occasion of the direct red waved then to Pogba, entered the field in the interval, for a bad foul on Keita. In short, patterns and nerves are completely blown and the Red Devils sink to -8 from the top of the standings.

According to reports from The Mirror, Manchester United’s humiliating 5-0 defeat against Liverpool would represent a conviction for Solksjaer who now risks more and more sacking. According to the tabloid, there are three coaches competing for the Red Devils’ bench: the two former Juventus players Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane, as well as Brendan Rodgers.

Italy 2-1 Belgium: the Italians win the final for third place in the Nation League. Tonight the Spain-France final

Italy got off to a strong start with the acceleration of Chiesa, who tried the shot twice within 120 seconds. The first real chance, however, is for Belgium, at the feet of Saelemaekers: Batshuayi’s side and shot from inside the area that displaces Donnarumma and is printed on the crossbar. The pace remains high and – at the end of the first half – the Azzurri are very close to the advantage: Chiesa is all alone in front of Courtois (after the excellent launch by Berardi) and takes a safe shot, but the Real goalkeeper performs a miracle with your feet and sends the ball for a corner. Mancini shocked him during the break and two minutes after the return came Barella’s wonderful goal. The Inter midfielder throws a flying ‘bomb’ from the edge of the area, which bags into the low corner behind Courtois. Italy insists and doubles with rigor, procured by the Church, transformed (with the thrill) by Berardi. Belgium reacts and after two posts reopens the match with a goal from De Ketelaere, but fails to catch the Azzurri.

Italia (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Di Lorenzo, Bastoni, Acerbi, Emerson Palmieri; Locatelli, Pellegrini, Barella; Berardi, Raspadori, Chiesa. Allenatore: Mancini.

Belgio (3-4-2-1): Courtois; Alderweireld, Denayer, Vertonghen; Saelemaekers, Witsel, Tielemans, Castagne; Vanaken, Carrasco; Batshuayi. Allenatore: Martinez.

Premier League – Manchester United-Everton 1-1, Chelsea take the lead after the 3-1 at Southampton. Leeds of Bielsa wins, white goals in Brighton-Arsenal

MANCHESTER (England) – Manchester United’s negative momentum in the Premier League continues. After the defeat with Aston Villa, in fact, the Red Devils are stopped on par by Benitez’s Everton and, in the event of a Liverpool win, they risk slipping to -3 from the top. Solskjaer initially chooses to keep Cristiano Ronaldo out by deploying Cavani in the center of the attack. The Uruguayan striker makes himself dangerous with a header in the 21st minute against which Pickford opposes. Manchester United unlocks the match at the end of the first half thanks to a blow from Martial on an assist from Bruno Fernandes. At 57 ‘Cristiano Ronaldo enters in place of Cavani but eight minutes later the Toffees find the same with a nice counterattack orchestrated by Doucouré and finalized by Townsend. At 73 ‘the former Juve tries with a diagonal that goes out on the bottom. At 81 ‘another Red Devils opportunity with a nice shot from distance by Pogba that comes out just a little. At 85 ‘Mina scores the goal of the advantage but the goal is canceled by the VAR due to an irregular position of the Colombian defender.

Chelsea take advantage of the equal of the Red Devils, win at home 3-1 against Southampton and take the provisional record of the standings waiting for Sunday’s big match between Liverpool and Manchester City. On the 8th minute of the first half, on the development of a corner kick, Chalobah in diving scores the goal of the advantage for the hosts. The Var becomes the protagonist at the end of the first half by canceling the goals of Lukaku (offside) and Werner (foul by Azpilicueta).

England, Arsenal win the most anticipated derby: beat Tottenham 3-1

Arsenal beat Tottenham (3-1) this Sunday in the sixth day of the Premier to continue improving their football and position in the table, unlike their London neighbor, while Raúl Jiménez scored again for Wolverhampton a year later .

Mikel Arteta’s men signed a great first half at the Emirates, with goals from Smith Rowe, Aubameyang and Saka, and they took a derby that confirms an important change with respect to the first days. The ‘gunners’ work and the ‘spurs’ have three days without winning when they started the first three leaders.

Now, Arsenal has nine points, the same as those of Nuno Espirito Santo, when the Portuguese coach seemed to have fallen on his feet at Tottenham, mainly due to a lost reliability. The visiting goal was made by the Spanish Reguilón, but the three points remained in an Emirates that regains some faith in the season.

Meanwhile, in the other game played this Sunday, Wolverhampton achieved the second victory of the season by beating (0-1) Southampton, with a great goal from Raúl Jiménez, who after a long injury scored again for the ‘wolves’ a year later.

Champions League: Juve beat Malmoe 3-0

Juventus wins 3-0 in Malmoe while finishing 2-2 between Villarreal and Atalanta 2-2 (The picture of the matches) Bayern wins 3-0 in Barcelona with a brace from Lewandowski. Lukaku signs Chelsea’s success. Cr7 is not enough, Manchester United knocked out in Bern

The Champions League cures the ills of Juve: the bianconeri find game and victory again, in Sweden they finish 3-0 for Allegri’s boys.

It is the technician’s first success in the official match since he returned to the Mole, in Malmoe the goals of Alex Sandro, Dybala (penalty) and Morata, all scored in the first half, are decisive. An excellent response after the disastrous start in the league, now we must also confirm in Serie A against tougher opponents than the modest Swedes. There is a fact that can above all satisfy: six months and 17 games in a row later, Juve’s goal goes back to being clean. And Szczesny, in the crosshairs of fierce criticism for the recent blunders, manages to smile. “When you play in the Champions League there is always concern and expectation. An away debut, after the results not arrived in the league, causes a little more pressure. The boys, however, played a good game on a technical level, even if in the first half we could make better use of some situations. We need to improve. ” So Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus coach, speaking to Mediaset after the victory in Malmoe in the Champions League. “The results affect the judgment, but you have to be good at maintaining balance, both in defeats, but above all in victories. Not conceding a goal is a good sign. I asked the boys to finish the game without conceding a goal, because that too it helps and relieves you of anxiety. Szczesny played a good game, equal to his value. It was important to win, now let’s think about the next game. It was important to win, otherwise the streak got too long. The mental aspect is 90% in all you work even more in football. When you leave points in the league, as we did, playing badly at times, but with single mistakes in the matches we had in hand, it makes you see things in a negative way. You have to distinguish the result from the performance”.

CR7 is not enough: United in 10 loses against Young Boys!

The 2021/22 Champions League has officially opened. And they are immediately surprised: Young Boys spoiled Ronaldo’s European season debut, while Salzburg drew 1-1 in Seville with a thousand regrets. Y

Things seem to be going well immediately for Manchester United, who pass Bruno Fernandes-Cristiano Ronaldo on the Portuguese axis in the 14th minute. The former Sampdoria puts a good ball for CR7, who scoffs at Ulisses Garcia and beats Von Balmoos, who is also quite uncertain. The turning point of the match at 35 ‘: Wan-Bissaka commits a savage on Martins Pereira and gets the sacrosanct red. Solskjaer in the second half covered with Varane for the disappointing van de Beek, but the Swiss pushed and equalized with Ngamaleu. United suffers, Solskjaer removes Ronaldo in the 72nd minute for Lingard. The Young Boys attacks with their heads down, the Red Devils have no more and Lingard in the 95th minute makes the omelette. His insane back pass gives Siebatcheu the winning goal.

Champion League: Chelsea win in Madrid against Atletico with a spectacular overhead kick

Yesterday Chelsea (London team) won the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 in Madrid, against Atletico Madrid with a spectacular goal from Giroud. The goal is perhaps one of the best in recent years because the player catches the ball two meters above the ground. However, for the London team, the passage of the round is not guaranteed because they will have to play the entire return match. Also yesterday another match took place: the one between Lazio and Bayern Munich, where the Bavarians completely overwhelmed the Italian team. I was watching the game, despite being a Juve fan but in international competitions I support all the Italian teams. At 0-3 I turned off the TV … and in fact the game ended 4-1. Tonight Real Madrid plays against Atalanta and obviously I will cheer for the Bergamo team. While for Manchester City it will be a walk.

CR7 and Juve stretch Barça: 3-0!

Yesterday Juventus achieved a historic victory against Barcelona: 3-0 at the Camp Nou. Although the Catalan team has returned from a series of problems, which are evident above all from the position in the rear in the Spanish league, Juve have shown a good incisive game. Two goals came from a penalty but Juve still created a myriad of scoring chances.
The game was not very tense, because both teams were qualified; at stake was only the first place of the group which allows you to face the second of another gironen that generally (not always) is weaker.

This victory also represents the probable beginning of a new cycle that Pirlo particularly hopes for, but above all it is the hope for a victory in the Champions League that has been missing for too many years and lost many times in the final. The first part of this season highlighted Morata's great form, which probably few expected. This is a good sign because in my opinion, despite the presence of the extra-terrestrial Ronaldo, the attack has always struggled, especially with the European teams.
