Weekend Football Review

Title races and top four races!

Premier League MW 33

Arsenal 0 vs. 1 Everton

Leno conceded a bizarre own goal in the 76th minute to give Everton the three points. Arsenal drop down to 10th with the loss now 12 points from the top four. Everton move up to 8th in the table as they look to seal a place in Europe. 

Liverpool 1 vs. 1 Newcastle

Salah scored in the 3rd minute and it looked like it would be a big win for the home team but Newcastle stayed strong. Liverpool missed a ton of chances to win the game and Newcastle took advantage in the final minutes. Newcastle had the ball in the net in the 93rd minute but it was disallowed because the ball hit Wilson’s arm. Liverpool thought they had sealed the win but Willock grabbed the equaliser with the final kick of the game. Liverpool move up to 6th with a point 4 points from 4th. Newcastle drop into 16th but now 9 points clear of the relegation zone. 

Sheffield United 1 vs. 0 Brighton

McGoldrick scored in the 19th minute for Sheffield United which was enough to get them the 3 points. The Blades are already relegated but they manage to get a win. Brighton drop into 17th with the loss and sit 7 points from the relegation zone. 

Wolverhampton 0 vs. 4 Burnley

Wood scored a hattrick in the 1st half and Westwood got a goal late in the game via a Wood assist as Burnley got a big win against Wolves. Wolves remain 12th with the loss while Burnley move into 14th 9 points from the relegation zone. 

Leeds 0 vs. 0 Man United

All the hype but a goalless draw. Leeds move into 9th with the point though while United remain 10 points behind City and 5 ahead of Leicester. 

Aston Villa 2 vs. 2 West Brom

El Ghazi got Villa the lead in the 9th minute via a penalty. Pereira then scored a penalty in the 23rd minute to equalise for West Brom. Mings scored an own goal in the 47th minute to give West Brom the lead. Davis equalised for Villa in the 92nd minute to manage a point. Villa remain 11th in the table while West Brom remain 19th and 9 points from safety. 

Leicester 2 vs. 1 Crystal Palace

Zaha gave Palace the lead in the 12th minute but goals from Castagne and Iheanacho in the 2nd half meant that Leicester came back to get a big win in their race for top four. Leicester remain 3rd 7 points from 5th while Palace remain 13th with the loss. 

Carabao Cup Final 

Man City 1 vs. 0 Tottenham

Laporte scored the only goal of the game in the 82nd minute to get City their 4th Carabao Cup in a row. Tottenham never really turned up and it was funny how they sacked Mourinho 6 days from a cup final that would get them a trophy a reason they got Mourinho in the first place. Tottenham manage to screw with themselves again. City get 1 of the 3 trophies available to them, the league is almost sorted so that should make it a double for them. 

La Liga MW 32

Real Madrid drew with Betis 0-0, Barcelona beat Villarreal 1-2, Sevilla beat Granada 2-1, and Bilbao beat Atletico 2-1. Atletico remain 2 points clear at the top of the table with Real Madrid behind them. Barcelona are level on points with Madrid with a game in hand which if they win would send them to the top of the table. Sevilla sit 4th a point behind Barcelona. It’s a 4 horse race in Spain right now with Barcelona and Madrid the favourites. Atletico are not in great form while Sevilla are involved as well. Interesting games ahead. 

Serie MW 33

Inter beat Verona 1-0, Juventus drew with Fiorentina 1-1, Cagliari beat Roma 3-2, Atalanta beat Bologna 5-0, Napoli beat Torino 0-2, and Lazio beat Milan 3-0. Inter are now 11 points clear of 2nd placed Atalanta as the title nears Milan. Napoli move into 3rd 2 points behind Atalanta while Juventus sit 4th on goal difference. Milan move out of the top four and into 5th but level on points with Napoli and Juventus as their poor form punishes them. Lazio and Roma complete the top 7. The top four race is fiery in Italy at the moment with Milan the latest team to slip down and suffer a flat tire. It’s anyones race. 

Bundesliga MW 31

Mainz beat Bayern 2-1, Dortmund beat Wolfsburg 0-2, Leverkusen beat Frankfurt 3-1, and Leipzig beat Stuttgart 2-0. Bayern fail to seal the title this weekend but remain 7 points clear at the top of the table. Bayern have 3 games to go and can seal it next weekend. Leipzig sit 2nd and are 7 points clear of 3rd. Wolfsburg and Frankfurt remain 3rd and 4th and a point separates the two teams while Dortmund remain 5th but now only 2 points behind Wolfsburg as they chase top four. Leverkusen have an outside chance at top four while Monchengladbach stand no chance. Nagelsmann has already decided to join Bayern next season and it’s almost a done deal as the title remain a when and not if this season. The race for the top four is interesting though with all eyes on Dortmund. 

Ligue MW 34

PSG beat Metz 1-3, Monaco beat Angers 0-1, and Lille came back from 2-0 down to beat Lyon 2-3. Lille remain a point clear at the top of the table with 4 games to go. PSG remain 2nd while Monaco are 3rd a point behind PSG. Lyon are 4th and now 4 points behind Monaco as they lose an edge in the race. Probably the most exciting race in Europe along with La Liga at the moment.
