Highlights after Liverpool 0-2 Atalanta match

Contrary to the opinion of football experts, Liverpool had a very poor playing day and deserved a defeat against a more determined opponent.

Liverpool’s worst match under Jurgen Klopp?

After Liverpool’s impressive 3-0 win over Leicester City last weekend, live football viewers await the Kop’s next sublime performance against opponents they have once beaten. 5 goals not removed in the first leg, Atalanta. Most football prediction experts assess that victory is completely within the reach of the British champions when Atalanta is experiencing a severe crisis of performance during the past time.

However, contrary to judgment, the red shirt team had 90 minutes of extremely disappointing at home. Not only did they show a fragmented play, a rare link loss, Liverpool could not stand up to effective attacks from Atalanta. It is possible to sympathize with the Anfield team when coach Jurgen Klopp has made many changes in the squad with the appearance of young players, but this does not excuse their total defeat. before the opponent. Even Liverpool’s strikers did not even have a hit goal in this match.

Night of the number 10 on the Atalanta side

It can be said that the character who directly brought 3 points to Atalanta in the match this morning was Alejandro Gomez. Not only showing the ability to regulate a super match, the Argentine star also prints the shoe directly in both Atalanta’s goals in this match.

At the opener, Gomez was the one who directly made the cross as if to let llicic score. In the goal that set the victory for the white shirt team, Gomez was the one who initiated the situation with the correct opening for Hateboer to have conditions for Gosens to finish easily to defeat Alisson.

Liverpool cannot be subjective

With Ajax winning all 3 points last night before Midtjylland, Liverpool is still leading the table, but the distance between them and the two teams behind Atalanta and Ajax has been reduced to 2 points. In the last two matches, Liverpool will have a confrontation with direct opponent Ajax. Meanwhile, the other opponent Midtjylland also holds many dangers as they have definitely been eliminated and will play with the spirit of having nothing to lose.

Messi was upset with the question after Argentina’s win

Lionel Messi and the Argentina team just beat Peru 2-0 to take second place in the 2022 World Cup qualifying group in South America.

Lionel Messi did not score or assist Argentina against Peru. After the match in Lima, the Barca striker received a question from the reporter that perhaps annoyed him.

First, when asked to comment on this victory, Messi emphasized: “We are becoming stronger as a team.

La Pulga stressed that the 2-0 score not only shows good results, but Lionel Scaloni’s team is starting to find effective play.

With an unhappy face, Messi replied: “Whenever I come here, it’s because I try to do my best. Because I feel capable of doing, helping this team, continuing to fight for the shirt that I give”.

Messi wants to leave Barca not only because of a conflict with the club but also an “enemy” that is the Spanish tax department, which also happened as Ronaldo before.

Lionel Messi is considering his future and looks likely to leave Barca for reasons outside of football. That is the same problem that caused Cristiano Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid in 2018.

Specifically, Messi’s problem with the Spanish tax authority is the reason why Ronaldo left Real Madrid before. Not far away, immediately after spending a 15-hour flight from Argentina to Barcelona, ​​Messi immediately met the tax inspector at the airport asking him to work.

The owner of the Golden Ball had thought of leaving Barca because of his frustration with the tax authorities in 2013 and 2014. This war culminated in 2017 when the court sentenced Messi and his father to 21 and 15 months of suspended prison term. for tax fraud worth more than 4 million euros.

Before moving to Juventus, Ronaldo also struggled with the Spanish tax authorities. This tension ended in January 2019 when CR7 decided to completely resolve the dispute over tax evasion allegations that took place from 2012 to 2014.

Messi and his teammates made it difficult for Barca on the salary negotiation table

Messi and his teammates are making it difficult for Barca’s leadership on the negotiating table to reduce the salary to solve the financial difficulties of the club.

Messi and his teammates have yet to reach an agreement with Barca’s interim leadership on salary cuts. The source of La Vanguardia newspaper said, the latest meeting between the representatives of the two sides took place on Wednesday this week but has not come to a mutual agreement.

Barca’s leadership suggested players reduce about 30% of their salary this season, equivalent to about 190 million euros. Meanwhile, the players want to agree with the new leadership of the club, not the temporary bureaucracy that only handles simple administrative procedures.

This negotiation has been going on for more than 2 months but has yet to find a common voice. The two sides will meet again next Monday (November 23) to completely resolve this issue.

If it is not possible to reach an agreement with the players, Barca’s interim leadership may have to unilaterally decide to reduce salary. But this also means that they will face a class action lawsuit from the players.

Earlier this year, Messi and his teammates accepted a 70% salary reduction to help the club overcome financial difficulties when the COVID-19 outbreak broke out. But because the epidemic has not been extinguished, Barca’s income this season has been severely damaged.

Financial experts predict that the COVID-19 translation will make Barca lose about 300 million euros in the 2020/21 season. Therefore, the club needs to cut about 190 million euros in player salaries to avoid bankruptcy.

Barca are trying to reach personal agreements with some key players such as Ter Stegen, Pique, De Jong and most importantly, Messi, the highest paid player in the team.

On the other hand, Barca is also expected to reap about 200 million euros from the sale of a 50% stake in Barca Corporate which owns Barca Studios, Barca Licensing & Merchandising, Barca Innovation Hub and Barca Academies.

Before that, Barca had to sell a series of old players with high salaries such as Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic or Arturo Vidal.

Spanish financial experts forecast that if Barca can not persuade the players to reduce their salary, the club may have to declare bankruptcy early next year.

MU languished for Cavani to debut

Edinson Cavani is unlikely to have a MU debut in the Newcastle match this weekend. But the Premier League giants beware the Uruguayan star.

Back after the national team series, MU fans are hoping to see their beloved team change their skin, get up after the 1-6 defeat with Tottenham. There, rookies like Edinson Cavani or Alex Telles, who only joined the “Red Devils” during the summer transfer window, were expected to have a manucian debut.

According to The Athletic, MU has found ways for Cavani to shorten the quarantine period. However, the rookie of the “Red Devils” must complete their quarantine until October 20. Cavani could not launch the MU shirt color during a trip to Newcastle’s field.

MU confirmed that Cavani took another week to quarantine. On October 21, “Red Devils” met PSG in the Champions League group stage 2020/21. Cavani is allowed to play in this match, but must be ready for fitness and form on the pitch.

Although Cavani could not immediately contribute to MU in the Premier League 2020/21, fans of “Red Devils” still have reasons to wait for this blockbuster contract with 0 VND. Because, Cavani was really a threat to the English Premier League giants during the period when he was on the PSG payroll or before that, Napoli.

According to statistics, Edinson Cavani has an extremely impressive record against the English Premier League giants. The Uruguayan striker has a total of 19 encounters with the giants of the “Big 6” group. Of these, Tottenham, the team that recently defeated MU 6-1, is the only British giant that has never faced Cavani.

Statistics from Planet Football show that Chelsea is the team that Cavani faces the most with 8 matches, including 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. In these 8 matches, “El Matador” scored 3 goals and 2 assists; with an average of 202.6 minutes / goal and every 121.6 minutes it contributes to a goal (to score or assist).

Next is Liverpool. When he was in Napoli and PSG, Edinson Cavani 4 times faced the Merseyside red shirt team, with a record of winning 1, drawing 1 and losing 2 matches. In these 4 matches, Cavani stunned, in return 2 assists. When facing the defending Premier League champions, Cavani takes part in a goal every 162.5 minutes of the host team.

With Man City, Edinson Cavani’s head-to-head record is much better. The 33-year-old striker scored 3 goals after 4 encounters, and the host team won 1, lost 1 and drew 2 matches. On average, Cavani every 115.6 minutes makes the MU neighboring team net.

Edinson Cavani twice faced Arsenal in the past, drawing both matches. Although he only played 2 matches, he also had 2 goals. Thus, whenever he confronts “Gunners”, he scores again.

And finally MU. Cavani has only met MU once in the past, which was a PSG defeat 1-3 in the Prince’s Park yard. Only in this match it took until the 90 + 5 minute, coach Tuchel let Cavani in. And of course that was not enough for him to make any mark.

Giggs predicted terrible things for MU if Klopp and Guardiola did not leave

MU legend Ryan Giggs emphasizes the influence of Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola in the Premier League.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher recently interviewed Giggs and asked the Welsh monument if MU would have to wait as long as Liverpool to regain the Premier League throne.

They have potential and stars, so Liverpool is a good example to look at. They took the throne in 1990 and thought they could win them again soon, but in the end it took 30 years. Even Klopp took 4 and a half years to win this title.

He improved the team season by season or won other titles like the Champions League. The elevation of the team and the decrease in pressure happened little by little. Every coach and new signings are supposed to help us win the trophy, but it is not.

Previously, Giggs once thought that former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskajer was on the right track, but it took more time to be able to revive MU. “Solskjaer is more or less unlucky in the era of Klopp and Guardiola. Klopp is in his 5th year at Liverpool, Guardiola is also building Man City during that time. Pochettino spent 6 years at Tottenham. Solskjaer also deserves the same time.

Leading MU is a difficult job for Solskjaer now. The current team’s force is a mix of players from Sir Alex, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho. Solskjaer needs time to build the squad the way he wants”, Giggs added.

Since Sir Alex retired in 2013, MU has never returned to the Premier League throne. The best result that the “Red Devils” Manchester has is second place in the 2017/18 Premier League led by Mourinho, but to 19 points behind neighbors Man City in the first place. Last season, Solskjaer learned an impressive game in the final stage, in time to finish 3rd to get tickets to the Champions League. However, MU is still quite far away from Liverpool and Man City.

Bayern – Atletico: Starting the main battle

Building a lasting empire in the Champions League is the goal of Bayern Munich. And even in high form, it is not easy – it is typically going to meet Atletico Madrid.

“We want to win the maximum number of titles like last season,” coach Hansi Flick confirmed before his opening match in the European arena, meeting Atletico. Since taking charge at the Alianz Arena, he has won every tournament with Bayern in them. Last season’s Champions League, Bayern became the first team in history to win on the way to conquer the silver cup.

The German coach has reason to be confident. From the beginning of the season, Bayern still showed a destructive form. They won seven out of eight games, including matches hitting four or even eight against their opponents. The only defeat against Hoffenheim came in less than 48 hours after Bayern experienced a tough match with Sevilla in the European Super Cup. This can be seen as an accident.

This season, Bayern still maintain the factors that made the treble last season. Although he said goodbye to Thiago Alcantara, coach Flick was not too worried when he determined the midfield entrustment for the duo Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka. Defense is a place to maintain stability with names that played well last season, under the direction of Manuel Neuer. More importantly, Bayern still keeps its gameplay rich in speed, pressing and pressing the opponent.

Bayern also owns a quality bench and has substitutions worthy of the main soccer players. In general, it is not easy to find weaknesses in the current team of the Alianz Arena home team.

With the above power, Bayern can completely defend the Champions League title like Real Madrid did in 2017, and become the second club in Europe to do this. Further, “Gray Lobster” can aim to build a lasting empire like what Real of Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo did. Three consecutive Champions League titles from 2016 to 2018 were Real’s dazzling milestones in the European arena, a great challenge for any team.

Bayern, in fact, also had certain similarities with Real then. They have a talented goalkeeper in a wooden frame, a solid defense, a midfield that can impose the opponent and especially a powerful attacking trio. Real’s peak period was associated with the BBC trio of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, and Bayern also owned Leroy Sane, Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry.

However, Bayern will face many difficulties in the opening match. Their opponent is Atletico, the team is always on the wrong foot in the European arena. Last season, Diego Simeone’s team eliminated defending champions Liverpool with an active defensive play and making good use of the few opportunities. This way of Atletico is like being born to face teams that like to push the opponent and push the team up as high as Bayern.

Since the beginning of the season, Atletico played four games and conceded only one goal. The defense, as usual, remains the backbone of the team and is a challenge for all attackers. Destroying the defense system of Atletico, so it is not a simple card for Hansi Flick and his students. Especially when the attacking trio of Bayern currently only Lewandowski is ready to play, because Sane is injured and Gnabry is positive for Covid-19. But Bayern is Thomas Muller, Kingsley Coman or Douglas Costa.

A victory over Atletico will partly confirm Bayern’s ambitions to create an empire in Europe.

Rivaldo: “Messi and Ronaldo help each other regain the top when confronted”

The former Barca striker believes that matches between Barca and Juventus in the Champions League group stage this season will be attractive to the world by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

“It’s great to seeLionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo face off again. They will light up the whole tournament, because the whole world wants to see the top two superstars compete,” Rivaldo told Betfair. “Some people think that Messi has deteriorated after Ronaldo left Spain. So this is a great opportunity for both of them to regain their peak form when competing on the field.”

Messi and Ronaldo have not faced off on the field since the summer of 2018, when the Portuguese superstar joined Juventus. The past two years, the performance of the duo that dominated world football a decade ago has gone down, especially in the Champions League. Messi once reached the semi-finals and once in the quarter-finals, and Ronaldo has never reached the fourth round of the team.

All are on the other side of the slope of their career, the chances for Messi and Ronaldo to reign at the top of world football are not many. That was one more reason why the upcoming confrontation, Rivaldo believed. “With the other two opponents, Dynamo Kiev and Ferencvaros, Barca and Juventus are almost certain to continue,” analyzed the 1999 Golden Ball. “Both Messi and Ronaldo are mentally comfortable to enter the fairest competition. The game itself will motivate the insiders. It’s great to see such a positive relationship possible. show up on the field, in as little as 180 minutes.

Barca, the team that brought Rivaldo to world star, is currently in the process of rebuilding under Ronald Koeman. However, the owner of Camp Nou does not shop much in the summer of 2020, but mainly pushes away the players. They are pursuing Memphis Depay, but have not received positive signals from Lyon. “Barca still finds an attacker to replace Luis Suarez. They will be happy if there is Depay,” Rivaldo said. “However, it is very difficult to find a player with the quality and fighting spirit like Suarez. I am afraid that there is a long way to go before Barca will have a worthy replacement, because all strikers brought back will be lost Compared to Suarez. This puts a lot of pressure on them”.

The best transfer squad in the Premier League summer 2020

Premier League clubs have spent more than £ 1.24 billion on player purchases in the summer of 2020 and here are the best rookie squads that just joined the Premier League.

In defense, goalkeeper Edouard Mendy made a good impression at Chelsea in the early days of replacing Kepa Arrizabalaga. He kept a clean sheet in his Premier League debut and promised to bring peace of mind to Coach Lampard in the near future.

Chelsea also contributed two other players in the defense, midfielder Thiago Silva and left-back Ben Chilwell. Silva played well to help Chelsea win the Crystal Palace, and Chilwell became the third player to score and assist in his debut in the Premier League.

On the right wing, Nelson Semedo also impressed after joining Wolves from Barca for the club’s record price of £ 36.8 million. Meanwhile, Man City spent 64.5 million pounds to buy Ruben Dias from Benfica in the hope of patching bad players in the past.

In midfield, Arsenal rookie Thomas Partey is considered to be the top scanner, alongside Thiago Alcantara and attack-oriented James Rodriguez. Partey has yet to debut in the Premier League, and Thiago and James both left an impression in the first four rounds.

Thiago just played one game for Liverpool but broke the record for the number of passes in the first half against Chelsea. James was even better with 3 goals and 2 assists in his first four Premier League matches.

In the striker line, two Chelsea stars Kai Havertz and Timo Werner combined with MU’s Edinson Cavani.

Both Havertz and Werner have made their mark in the Premier League matches, while Cavani also promises to bring many goals for MU after what has performed in Napoli or PSG.

Lampard: “Football is not as simple as assembling”

Coach Frank Lampard admitted, adding six quality recruits in the summer of 2020 made him struggle to find the right strategy for Chelsea.

“Part of the reason for Chelsea’s success last season came from the training ground,” Frank Lampard told AFP ahead of a match against Tottenham in the fourth round of the League Cup on September 29. “When there are new players, the coach needs more time to watch. We didn’t get that chance earlier this season. Chelsea’s problem is not just in the defense, it’s the whole way it works.”

Chelsea opened the new season with a 3-1 away win over Brighton, but then lost 0-2 to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. Questions about their strength grew after Lampard’s teachers and students drew a 3-3 draw against West Brom last weekend, losing three goals.

Similar to the 2019-2020 season, Chelsea lacks defensive certainty. In the defeat to Liverpool, goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga failed to help “The Kop” secure a 2-0 victory. Going to the match against West Brom, experienced rookie midfielder Thiago Silva slipped and gave his opponent a goal to increase the score to 2-0.

“Football is not just about putting together what you think is the right thing. It always has potential surprises, otherwise we wouldn’t have had successful coaches outperforming the rest. Me. saying it was not an excuse, but the truth was right, “Lampard said.

Three of the six new faces of Chelsea this summer are in the defense. Lampard did not hide his intention to improve the quality of this line, when in turn welcoming Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and the latest goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. Their appearance puts veterans like Kepa at risk of losing their place and being sold for the remainder of the transfer window.

“This is a difficult time for Kepa. I think he knows, but I still want to repeat. Kepa is young and looking at him too much is a loss,” Lampard commented on the Western goalkeeper Spain. “I always protect Kepa because I know his abilities. He is a professional, always wanting to give the best to the club. Let’s not rush to conclude anything.”

Four days after Tottenham’s visit to the League Cup, Chelsea will host Crystal Palace in the fourth round of the Premier League. After that, the players will return to the army with the same team.
