Midweek Football Review

Football wins for now!

Premier League (Games in hand)

Tottenham 2 vs. 1 Southampton

It was 28 year old Ryan Mason’s first game as interim coach of Tottenham but it didn’t get off to the best start. Ings scored in the 30th minute to give Southampton the lead. Spurs came out in the 2nd half with some tactics and Bale equalised in the 60th minute. Son then scored the winner in the 90th minute from the penalty spot. Tottenham move into 6th with one more game played over the rest while Southampton remain 14th in the table. 

Aston Villa 1 vs. 2 Man City

McGinn scored in the 1st minute to give Villa the lead but Foden and Rodri scored before half time to give City the lead. Stones was sent off in the 44th minute to give Villa some hope but Cash was sent off in the 57th minute and neither team could add to the scoreline in the 2nd half. Villa remain 11th in the table while City go 11 points clear at the top having played a game more. 

Leicester 3 vs. 0 West Brom

Vardy, Evans, and Iheanacho scored in the 1st half to give Leicester a comfortable lead and West Brom had no reply as their survival hopes take another hit. Leicester go 4 points clear of 4th and remain 7 behind United. West Brom remain 19th in the table 9 points from safety. 

La Liga MW 31

Sevilla beat Levante 0-1, Alaves beat Villarreal 2-1, Real Madrid beat Cadiz 0-3, Atletico beat Huesca 2-0, and Barcelona beat Getafe 5-2. Atletico remain 3 points clear at the top of the table while Madrid are right behind them in 2nd. Barcelona sit 2 points behind Madrid but with a game in hand. Sevilla have a lock on 4th sitting 17 points clear of 5th. The title race continues between the top 3 but with Real Madrid and Barcelona still in the Super League they really are the villians of football at the moment. 

Serie MW 32

Sassuolo beat Milan 1-2, Inter drew with Spezia 1-1, Juventus beat Parma 3-1, Roma drew with Atalanta 1-1, and Napoli beat Lazio 5-2. Inter are 10 points clear at the top of Serie A with Milan still in 2nd place. Atalanta remain 3rd a point behind Milan, while Juventus are 4th level on points with Atalanta. Napoli are 5th 2 points behind Juventus while Lazio and Roma come in at 6th and 7th. The race for the top 4 is on in Italy as Inter still remain at a distance. 

Bundesliga MW 30

Leipzig lost to Koln 2-1, Bayern beat Leverkusen 2-0, Frankfurt beat Augsburg 2-0, Dortmund beat Union Berlin 2-0, Hoffenheim beat Monchengladbach 3-2, and Wolfsburg beat Stuttgart 1-3. Bayern go 10 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table, with Leipzig 2nd. Wolfsburg, and Frankfurt sit 3rd and 4th while Dortmund are 5th 4 points behind Frankfurt. Leverkusen, and Monchengladbach sit 6th and 7th. That should be the title race done and dusted in the Bundesliga for yet another year. 

Coupe De France Quarter-Final

Rumilly beat Toulouse 2-0, Monpellier beat Canet 1-2, PSG beat Angers 5-0, and Monaco beat Lyon 0-2. PSG and Monaco are the top teams in the competition while Rumilly are the small team making it big. Montpellier are the dark horse.
