Midweek Football Review

Usual suspects.

Carabao Cup Round of 16

Burton 1 vs. 3 Leicester

Iheanacho and Tielemans scored in the 1st half to give Leicester a comfortable lead at half time. Boyce then scored in the 52nd minute to give Burton some hope but Maddison scored at the end of the game to seal a win for Leicester. 

Everton 2 vs. 0 Watford

Holgate and Richarlison scored in the final 20 minutes of the 2nd half to get Marcos Silva a win against his former side. Watford continue their form without a win while Everton get some momentum. 

Man City 3 vs. 1 Southampton

Otamendi and Aguero scored in the 1st half while Aguero added a 3rd in the 2nd half before Stephens got a consolation goal for Southampton. City continue their form in a usual win while Southampton manage to concede less than 5. 

Liverpool 5 (5) vs. (4) 5 Arsenal

An entertaining game to say the least as Liverpool won on penalties. Mustafi scored an own goal in the 6th minute to give Liverpool the lead. Torreira then equalised for Arsenal in the 19th minute following which Martinelli scored in the 26th and 36th minute to give the Gunners a 1-3 lead. Milner then scored a penalty in the 43rd minute to make it 2-3 at half time. Maitland-Niles scored in the 54th minute to give Arsenal a 2-4 lead but the Gunners could not hold on as Chamberlain and Origi scored in the following ten minutes to make it level. Willock then scored a belter of a goal in the 70th minute and it seemed like that would be the winner for Arsenal but Origi scored in the 94th minute to take the game to penalties. Liverpool finished all their penalties as they move on to the quarter finals.

Aston Villa 2 vs. 1 Wolverhampton

El Ghazi gave Villa the lead in the 28th minute but the 2nd half saw Cutrone equalise for Wolves in the 54th minute. Elmohamady then scored the winner for Villa in the 57th minute. 

La Liga MW 11

Atletico drew against Alaves 1-1, Barcelona beat Valladolid 5-1, Sevilla drew against Valencia 1-1, and Real Madrid beat Leganes 5-0. Barcelona move to the top with Granada still to play while Real Madrid, Granada, and Atletico make up the top four. 

Serie MW 10

Inter beat Brescia 1-2, Napoli drew with Atalanta 2-2, Roma beat Udinese 0-4, Juventus beat Genoa 2-1, and Milan are yet to play. Juventus, Inter, Atalanta, and Roma make up the top four while Milan could go up to 10th with a win. 

DFB Pokal 2nd Round

Bayern beat VFL Bochum 1-2, Leverkusen beat Paderborn 1-0, Leipzig beat Wolfsburg 1-6, Dortmund beat Monchengladbach 2-1, and Frankfurt beat St.Pauli 1-2. Usual wins for Germany’s top sides in the cup but Dortmund had to fight hard while Leipzig were dominant.
