It si nice when there are plenty of games on the European football scene. I am spaking for the round of Seria A, La Liga and Bundesliga. Not forgetting to mention EFL Cup in England.
In that article will try to take a look at the most interesting games of the passed few days. It is not always about main teams playing , but also the VAR system. The video assistant referee will be a matter of great discussions not only in my blog. So I will try to split, the games I have wathced as per the different countries and their most-famous teams.
England – EPL Cup :
- Liverpool – Arsenal – what a game? When the result is 5-5 , you think it is like a hockey game or the start of a handball one. Arsenal were having a lead all the time 1-3, 2-4 and 4-5 but Pool equalized just before the end of the game. The rest is history ,Liverpool were better in the penalties shoot-out.
- Chelsea – Manchster United – United is the ” black cat” this year for the team of Lampard. Marcus Rushfford was amazing , eventhough I am a huge fan of the Blues. Obviosly Hazard, Higuain and Giroux are missing a lot. Huddson Odoi was not in the shape everybody wants to see him.
Italy – Seria A :
- Juventus – Genoa – it is always hars when Juve is playing, if they are not winning in the regular time some efforts and favours have to be made bu the referees. You pretty good know what I am talking about. There was no penalty against Ronaldo. He even had to take yellow card for simulation. VAR was in favour for the team from Genoa as a gola of CR7 was just deteled as per off-side situation.
- Napoli-Atalanta – obviously the team from Naples will not be able to make something serious in Seria A this year. Was there a penalty for the away team – I will leave this to you. VAR is the big problem this year in all the major leagues. Not forgetting to mention that currently on the standing the team of Father Carlo in on the 6th place with the same points as SS LAzio – 18.
- Lazio- Torino – I will speak here about two guys and great friends : Immobile and Belotti. The sad thing is that Belotti scored an own goal, but he is amazing striker and we all know it. Immobile scored two goals and I remeber the scene from the end of the derby, when Ciro just hugged his friend Belotti. Amazing people.
Spain – LA Liga :
I will not analyse any games by that championship but it is very strange to me that Athletico Madrid are continuing to make draw results – one after another. Barcelona are having the lead now with one point before Real Madrid. The strange thing I never will understand is why Griezman went away from Madrid. I do not believe that this was his best and smartest choice.
