Weekend Football Review

The race continues!

Premier League MW 36

Liverpool 5 vs. 0 Huddersfield

Keita opened the scoring in the 1st minute while Mane scored a double and Salah scored the other two to give Liverpool a comfortable victory against Huddersfield. Liverpool remain 2nd two points behind City while Huddersfield just can’t wait for the season to end. 

Tottenham 0 vs. 1 West Ham

Antonio scored in the 67th minute to hand Tottenham their first defeat at their new stadium as well concede their first goal. Tottenham have a massive game against Ajax in the Champions League and perhaps their mind was elsewhere but West Ham took advantage. Spurs remain 3rd though as the rest of the teams fighting for the top four are also as poor as them. West Ham remain 11th.

Crystal Palace 0 vs. 0 Everton

Palace remained 12th and Everton remain 9th after a nil nil draw in London. 

Fulham 1 vs. 0 Cardiff City

It is a case of too little too late for Fulham as they got their 3rd straight win in the league. Cardiff’s loss also means that they are now 4 points behind Brighton and are staring at relegation for now. 

Southampton 3 vs. 3 Bournemouth

Long gave Southampton the lead in the 12th minute while Gosling and Wilson scored to bring Bournemouth back into the game at half time. Ward-Prowse and Targett then gave Southampton the lead in the second half before Wilson scored in the 86th minute to ensure that both teams ended the game with a point. The teams remain 16th and 14th. 

Watford 1 vs. 2 Wolverhampton

Wolves got some revenge on Watford as they beat them away from home. Jimenez gave Wolves the lead right before half time but Gray equalised in the 49th minute. Jota then scored in the 77th minute to seal three points for Wolves. Watford drop into 10th with the defeat while Wolves remain 7th.

Brighton 1 vs. 1 Newcastle

Perez gave Newcastle the lead in the 18th minute while Brighton equalised in the 75th minute via Gross. Brighton get a massive point in their fight for Premier League survival while Newcastle remain 13th. 

Leicester 3 vs. 0 Arsenal

Maitland-Niles was sent off in the 36th minute for Arsenal but the Gunners held on and kept Leicester at bay in the first half. Leicester went into 2nd gear for the 2nd half and Tielemans opened the scoring in the 59th minute. Vardy then added a double in the final 5 minutes to seal the win. Leicester are now 8th in the table while Arsenal remain 5th two points behind Chelsea and one point ahead of United as they suffer their 3rd straight defeat. 

Burnley 0 vs. 1 Man City

Aguero scored in the 63rd minute as the ball just managed to cross the line as they continue their lead at the top with two games remaining. Burnley remain 15th. 

La Liga MW 34

Altetico beat Valladolid 1-0, Barcelona beat Levante 1-0, and Real lost to Vallecano 1-0. Barcelona are 9 points clear and with 3 games remaining they are crowned the La Liga champions for the 18/19 season retaining the title from last year. Atletico, Real, and Getafe make up the top four.

Serie MW 34

Roma beat Cagliari 3-0, Inter drew with Juventus 1-1, Napoli beat Frosinone 0-2, and Milan lost to Torino 2-0. Juventus, Napoli, and Inter make up the top 3 while Roma move into 4th. Milan, Atalanta, Torino, and Lazio still have a chance at top four though. 

Bundesliga MW 31

Leipzig beat Freiburg 2-1, Frankfurt drew with Hertha Berlin 0-0, Dortmund collapsed against Schalke 2-4, Monchengladbach lost to Stuttgart 1-0, Wolfsburg beat Hoffenheim 1-4, and Bayern drew with Nurnberg 1-1. Bayern could have gone clear of Dortmund with a win but Dortmund can count themselves lucky as the gap is still only 2 points. Leipzig and Frankfurt make up the top four. 

Ligue MW 34

Lyon beat Bordeaux 2-3, Lille beat Nimes 5-0, Marseille lost Nantes 1-2. PSG and Rennes are not involved until tonight as they played in the Coupe De France final while Monaco will play against Rennes. PSG, Lille, Lyon, and St.Etienne make up the top four. 

Coupe De France Final

PSG played Rennes in the final as it looked like they would win one more trophy for this season. Alves and Neymar scored early on to give PSG a 2-0 lead but Kimpembe scored an own goal right before half time. Sitoe then equalised for Rennes in the 66th minute as the game went to extra time. Mbappe was sent off in extra time in the 118th minute and Rennes won the penalty shootout 6-5. A historic day for Rennes as they win only their 3rd trophy in history while several questions are raised about PSG and how they are run as a club.
