Uruguayan Edinson Cavani scored the goals for Manchester United in a 3-2 defeat at the Olympic Stadium against Rome, who had lost 6-2 in the first leg at Old Trafford

Cavani opened the scoring at 39 ‘and scored the temporary draw at 68’ to reach four victories in his three games as a starter with Manchester United in the Europa League, which the English team won for the only time in the 2016-17 season.

Manchester United was crowned in that edition of the tournament under the command of Portuguese DT José Mourinho, who coincidentally will assume next season in Rome as a replacement for his compatriot Paulo Fonseca

The Bosnian Edin Dzeko (57 ‘), Bryan Cristante (60’) and the Polish youth Nicola Zalewski (84 ‘) scored the goals of the insufficient victory of the “giallorosso” team, which also made the Spanish goalkeeper of Manchester a figure of the match United, David De Gea

Roma, who lined up Brazilians Roger Ibañez and Bruno Peres (replaced at 69 ‘), showed their best version in the complement, when they resembled the team that achieved a feat in the quarterfinals of the 2017-18 “Champions League”

On that occasion, Roma qualified by beating Barcelona 3-0 at home in the rematch after losing 4-1 in the first leg in Spain.

But the saves by De Gea and the goals by Cavani (cautioned and replaced at 73 ‘), a starter with Brazilian Fred (cautioned), frustrated Roma, which will now have to settle for qualifying for the next edition of the Europa League from Series A

A right hand from Cavani rebounded at 20 ‘against the top of the crossbar before the departure of Antonio Mirante, who six minutes later responded to a furious shot from the Uruguayan

But the “Matador” had his revenge by opening the scoring at 39 ‘when he was once again alone against Mirante against an exposed Rome in his search to discount the difference of the defeat of the first leg

De Gea had already prevented the opening of the scoreboard at 33 ‘before a left-footed shot from Lorenzo Pellegrini and returned eight minutes later after a shot from Armenian Henrikh Mkhitaryan, while Mirante could barely look at a barely wide right hand from Portuguese Bruno Fernandes

De Gea responded again to a right hand from Cristante as soon as the complement began and he again showed off with a double covered at 61 ‘after shots by Dzeko and Pedro and a minute later before an attempt by Mkhitaryan

Roma had already managed to reverse the score at that time, when De Gea prevented the Italian team from scoring at least one of the three goals they needed to qualify.

Then came Cavani’s second goal, a minute after Mason Greeenwood’s slightly deflected shot, while an attempt by Mkhitaryan slammed into a post in the 74th minute, two minutes before Dzeko’s high header.

De Gea responded again to a shot from Cristante, who had scored the temporary 2-1 with a right hand after a bad start by Fred, whose compatriot Alex Telles entered for the second half

The 19-year-old Zalewski’s goal, six minutes after the regulation time, allowed Roma to say goodbye with at least one victory of the tournament whose final only came in the 1990-91 edition, in which they lost to Inter and while still it was called the UEFA Cup

Manchester United, escort in the Premier League of Manchester City, which will also define the “Champions League” with Chelsea, will face Villarreal in the final on May 26 at the Arena Gdansk in Poland, which eliminated Arsenal

DT Unai Emery’s “Yellow Submarine”, who won 3 of the 4 finals he played in the Europa League, qualified for his first final of an important tournament on the “Old Continent” by equalizing 0-0 in his visit to Arsenal, the one who had beaten 2-1 in the first leg

Emery was successively crowned in command of Sevilla in the 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 editions, but lost as Arsenal manager in the final against Chelsea in the 2018-19 season.

Villarreal, who lined up Argentine goalkeeper Gerónimo Rulli and included Colombian striker Carlos Bacca at 72 ‘, only won the Intertoto Cup in 2003 and 2004.

Arsenal lived a new frustration, who only won the Recopa de Europa (1993-94) and the Fairs Cup (1969-70) and lost both times they reached the final of the UEFA Cup and the Europa League in their respective editions. from 1999-00 and 2018-19

The problem for Arsenal, also Spanish DT Mikel Arteta, who fell in the final of the 2005-06 “Champions” and the 1994 European Super Cup, is that he is ninth in the Premier League with 49 points, far behind Tottenham ( 56) and West Ham (58), the two English teams qualified today for the next Europa League



Manchester City vs PSG, result, goals, details, Champions League final classified | Champions League

Pep Guardiola’s Swiss watch did not clash at the Etihad Stadium, in the rematch of the Champions League semi-final, and thus his Manchester City certified its place in the final, against a harmless, inoperative PSG, powerless as ever.

The British asserted their 1-2 advantage in the first leg, in Paris, and in the second leg they passed well ahead of the French, with a clear, incontestable 2-0 victory. And the best part: Guardiola finally achieved his goal of being a finalist after failing in the last ten years! And it’s his team’s first final! Nobody will ruin it for him tonight …

The tragedy of facing Manchester City with need is that, no matter how much you fight or how well you play, you will always know that he awaits you with a dagger under his coat: when PSG was better together and excited with a penalty, at 6 minutes , by a Zichenko hand that was not, Mahrez suddenly came out to take a rebound on Ederson’s phenomenal pitch and scored the 1-0. Just 10 minutes!

And at that point, with a 3-1 down, what does it matter: a ball crashed into Marquinhos’s header against the crossbar, a good attempt from the outside to Di María and the roads became dense, beyond the nine that covered the basketball court. Few things as exhausting as attacking without weapons.

Then it was a matter of local administration, which was even able to extend to 30 with the indefatigable De Bruyne or to 45 + 2, when Silva’s shot was barely deflected. Without a doubt, an easier rematch than thought for Guardiola and his team.

That is why in the complement they were more animated and Foden proved the strength of Navas’ hands to the then PSG said goodbye to the final: Zinchenko proposed, Foden crossed and Mahrez scored the double for the final 2-0 (4-1 on global). And it could have been a great goal from City’s wonder boy, who crashed into the post … it must have been, if there were justice, the one that the City machine appropriated by dint of precision, talent, sacrifice and a diaphanous and precise script. . Nothing more to add.

There was never any risk, it did not get to worry that best version of Neymar -who was able to resign his dreamed Ballon d’Or at the Etihad Stadium-, it was a grief to see Mbappé suffer everything on the platform when his team cried out to sea and, as a culmination , Ángel Di María expelled, at 68 minutes, for attacking Fernandinho off the field.

PSG left, the one who excited, the one who played one of the best matches of the entire Champions League against Bayern Munich, because there is no way to answer the overwhelming superiority of a Manchester City that capitalized on its quota in the first leg of the semifinal and it administered in the rematch, at his home. Are we before the new champion? Very nearly…

Libertad destroyed Cerro Porteño in his new pot, with pure effectiveness and with a decisive Antonio Bareiro, something that is already customary when the rival on duty is the Cyclone. The “Demon” contributed a goal and an assist so that Gumarelo quickly sentenced the lawsuit in Barrio Obrero and retake the leadership of the Apertura tournament again.

The development of the game globally was quite even, but Libertad did not fail in offense practically and before each waste of Cerro, he responded with a goal and ended up sealing a win in Barrio Obrero.

In the first half, both had great chances, mainly with mid-distance shots, since inaccuracies abounded, with a very uncomfortable Cerro due to Gumarelo’s strategic pressure on key men, such as Claudio Aquino and Ángel Cardozo Lucena.

Lucena was precisely the first to warn with a great shot inside the area, but Martín Silva covered in a great way. Libertad responded with a “missile” from Blas Cáceres and little by little it made a better impression than the local in attack.

“Tacuara” Cardozo tried a tremendous shot from a very distant position and Miguel Martínez barely served.

Gumarelo, who was injured after the elimination in the Copa Libertadores, came in the complementary game.

After a good collective move on the left, “Tacuara” assisted with a tremendous quality chest and Héctor “Tito” Villalba, friendly with good play and goals, signed the 1-0 partial.

Libertad punished Cerro very hard, since in the previous one, Mauro Boselli “ate” an incredible goal. Robert Morales overflowed and gave him only in front of the goal, without a goalkeeper, but he screwed up the ball incredibly.

About 10 minutes into the complementary, the preferred perpetrator of Cerro Porteño, Antonio Bareiro, entered.

The demon took just over ten minutes to do his thing and confirm that he is the lord and master of the New Pot. After an overflow from Blas Cáceres and a deflected center, he found a ball inside the area and made it 2-0.

But Bareiro wanted more and to leave his stamp again and in a masterful counterattack, he only attended the boy Julio Enciso, who finally sealed the categorical 3-0.

Libertad thrashed, recovered his motivation and above all, he is once again the leader of the tournament, which he had lost for a day at the hands of Nacional.

COVID-19 hits the health of anyone very hard, even high-level athletes, such as Lucas Barrios, who will have to rest for a while due to the side effects of the disease.

The Paraguayan striker missed the La Plata classic, between his team, Gimnasia y Esgrima and Estudiantes, due to myocarditis detected by the club’s cardiologists, after having twice acquired the COVID-19 virus, which leaves sequelae even in players of football, which in theory have more defenses due to their athletic preparation.

“After cardiological studies, it was found that the player Lucas Barrios suffers from mild myocarditis, of a viral inflammatory nature”, as a result of the reinfection of COVID-19

“The medical recommendations say that I have to stop for a while. It is good that we give the message to people. It is the second time that COVID-19 has caught me, I had antibodies and everything. I live this moment that is not beautiful for anyone “The important thing is slight and I can recover soon,” said Barrios, also leaving a message to the clubs, so that much emphasis is placed on the cardiological part of the athletes.

Agüero was the last survivor of the dying champion City

May 13, 2012. The Etihad Stadium ticket booths had a sign saying “Sold out” in red letters, which means that all tickets were sold. Half of the city, the one that lately was postponed by its classic rival, was before the great opportunity to shout champion. And while it seemed that fate did not want to break the 44-year streak without winning the league title, Sergio Agüero appeared to score an agonizing goal in the 94th minute, giving Manchester City a 3-2 win against Queen’s Park Rangers and, consequently, to be able to lift the trophy of the best team of the season in England.

Mourinho, betting favorite to be fired

The Portuguese watched from the bench as Dinamo Zagreb beat them back from 2-0 in the first leg on Thursday, with a 3-0 win in extra time.

Mourinho, who arrived at Tottenham last season, is the top favorite at British sportsbooks to be the next sacked in the Premier League before the season ends. The Portuguese is ahead of Steve Bruce, who is in a very delicate situation at Newcastle United, and Sam Allardyce, who has West Bromwich Albion on the decline.

Mourinho’s Tottenham are the first English team to fail to take a 2-0 lead to advance from Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in 2017, when Monaco beat them 5-3.

The ‘Spurs’ will now only be able to be in the Champions League next season through the Premier League, for which they need to get into the top four. Right now, nine days to go, they are eighth, six points behind the Champions League.
