The situation of Group D in the Champions League has become unpredictable

Real Madrid’s defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk has made the situation of Group D unpredictable.

Before the fifth match, many people believed that Real Madrid would enter the round of 16 because they had 7 points and only 1 point behind Borussia Monchengladbach’s top. Meanwhile, Shakhtar Donetsk’s chances of going on even though they only have 4 points. Inter Milan only has 2 points and must expect a miracle.

Finally, a miracle appeared for the Nerazzurri. In Germany, his teachers and students Antonio Conte defeated Borussia Monchengladbach 3-2 thanks to the goals of two former Manchester United stars Matteo Darmian and Romelu Lukaku. In the match that took place at the same time, Real Madrid suddenly received a 0-2 defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk at Olimpiysky Stadium.

Real Madrid was disappointed by Shakhtar Donetsk

Currently, Borussia Monchengladbach still has 8 points. Shakhtar Donetsk is second with 1 point less. Real Madrid also has 7 points but must be ranked third due to poor performance against confrontation. Finally, hope to return to Inter Milan because they are only 3 points behind the top of the table.

Real Madrid was disappointed by Shakhtar Donetsk

Inter won the match, Conte and Lukaku shared a statement

What could happen in the last game? If they both receive defeat at home, Real Madrid and Inter Milan will lead each other to leave the game. Then, Los Blancos will have the first appearance in the Europa League in history. So, if he wants to determine his own fate, Mr. Zinedine Zidane’s teachers and students must win against Borussia Monchengladbach.

In the event of a draw in Spain, Real Madrid will have to wait for Inter Milan to beat Shakhtar Donetsk. At that time, Los Blancos will be 1 point ahead of the representative of Ukraine and pass the group stage.

Meanwhile, with Inter Milan, if they want to continue, they must defeat Shakhtar Donetsk at Giuseppe Meazza, and wish Real Madrid to do the same against Borussia Monchengladbach.

At that time, Real Madrid will lead with 10 points, Inter Milan will have the same 8 points as representatives of the Bundesliga, but ranked above due to the performance against each other. If the Nerazzurri win and the remaining match is a draw, they will still be eliminated by their inferior performance against Real Madrid.

Man United’s victory and Cavani’s public opinion

Against Southampton, Man United continued to prove they were the team that deserved the most love thanks to the goals at the end of the match. Man United has always made its fans excited by the comeback in football.

Though Southampton had an impressive streak with Ward-Prowse inspiration. The quality of their players is also not comparable to Man United. And in the position of an underdogs, having a 2-goal lead in the first half made the Southampton players unconscious after being equalized.

Regret because 2 points lost made them choose to play too openly before the opponent got inspired. Therefore, failure is of course when Southampton players want to go up to find goals while Man United starts to be more alert.

If coach Ralph Hasenhuttl is sober enough to be satisfied with a point and asks his team to play tighter, maybe he will reach his goal. Of course, in football, everyone wants to win.

However, because of the ambition to earn 3 points, Southampton had to pay the price. They are too high but not qualified enough to escape the opponent’s blockade and lose more ball.

Man Utd’s victory came from their own intolerance. In the long run, Southampton’s approach is too dumb. And if we look at the Chelsea game – Tottenham then, we will understand more and more what foolishness is.

Cavani deserves to be the best player in the match even though he only entered the field at the beginning of the second half. One assist, two shots of chances to score enough to show that he is the most comprehensive and classy striker of Man Utd today.

It was thanks to Cavani’s assists that Bruno Fernandes’s match was redeemed. If not, Fernandes really had an average match. Cavani shines in front of Southampton, because he’s too talented, too experienced, too brave.

However, part of us also need to admit that when Cavani exploded, the players of Southampton were also physically exhausted. It was because Southampton was exhausted, a 33-year-old old general like Cavani was able to do so.

Barca has the youngest squad in the Champions League after 9 years

Barca launched the youngest squad in the Champions League after 9 years but still won Dynamo Kyiv to win tickets.

Barca’s meeting with Dynamo Kiev after winning 3 previous matches has helped coach Ronald Koeman for many pillars to rest. This means they use the youngest squad in the Champions League since 2011 when they met BATE Borisov in the group stage (23 years and 93 days).

Now, 11 starting players from the Catalan team include Ter Stegen; Dest, Mingueza, Lenglet, Junior; Pjanic, Alena; Trincao, Coutinho, Pedri and Braithwaite have an average age of 24 years and 206 days.

The squad could have been younger if 17-year-old striker Ansu Fati was not injured. Meanwhile, Messi has been released, while Pique, Busquets, Sergi Roberto are injured.

Among the match’s novelty, the highlight was the presence of a player from the youth team – Oscar Mingueza. The 19-year-old midfielder from the Barca B team played very personality, taking advantage of the absence of Pique and Araujo to make an impressive debut.

Barca only launched the B team, but still won

Notably, Matheus Fernandes (22) finally made his debut as a Barcelona player. The Brazilian midfielder entered the field in the 72nd minute for Pedri and switched to interception position.

Besides, Konrad de la Fuente (age 19) has played in the first team after arriving at the club in 2014 at the age of 12. For his part, Riqui Puig made his Champions League debut at the age of 21.

Barca has had many unprecedented injuries after a decade

Barca is suffering from unprecedented injuries in the past decade, which partly affect the results on the pitch.

The fact that Busquets sprained his knee and had to take a three-week hiatus from the game left nine Barca players injured in the early part of this season. This is the highest number since the 2009/10 season after 10 official matches.

Ansu Fati, Alba, Araujo, Braithwaite, Busquets, Coutinho, and Junior took turns having to retire in the first 10 official matches of the season.

Ansu Fati was seriously injured

Besides, Ter Stegen underwent surgery before starting the campaign, Matheus could not start with new coach Koeman and Umtiti sidelined from last season. Barca’s most worrying injury was Ansu Fati with a torn inner meniscus and 4 months off. The young player’s long-term identity makes the club inevitably have to buy more strikers in January.

Ansu Fati was seriously injured

Wing-back Jordi Alba suffered a right thigh hamstring injury resulting in two missed matches against Gretafe and Ferencvaros. Another football star, Coutinho, suffered a left thigh injury that left him absent from Juventus, Alavés, Dinamo, and Betis.

Former Barca director revealed the reason why the club did not buy Neymar

Former Director Javier Bordas revealed that Barca could not buy Neymar from PSG during the transfer window last summer for a very rare reason.

Neymar once asked to leave PSG to return to Barca in the summer of 2019 and even quit training to put pressure. But in the end, the deal broke down at the last minute and Neymar is still with PSG today. The reason for this failure was revealed by former Barca’s legal director, Javier Bordas, in an exclusive interview with Mundo Deportivo.

Mr. Bordas asserted that Barca was very serious to buy Neymar in the summer of 2019. As evidenced by the legal director of Bordas and CEO Oscar Grau and sporting director Eric Abidal went to Paris to negotiate with PSG.

The reason Neymar left Barca

In an interview with Mundo Deportivo, Bordas also confirmed that Neymar made a mistake when demanding to leave in 2017 and then wanted to return after only 2 years of adventure at PSG. Mr. Bordas also admitted that he knew the real reason why Neymar was determined to leave Barca, but it was better than the Brazilian striker explained himself.

MU badly played at the home field in the Premier League this season

MU disappointed fans with poor results at home in the Premier League this season, not even winning a match. Although MU has just won Everton, MU has never known a celebration at Old Trafford in the Premier League this season, resulting in the penultimate home record.

It is hard to believe that so far MU has only earned 1 point from the draw with Chelsea, the rest have lost 3 matches at home.

MU just lost to Arsenal at the home field

The Red Devils have now conceded 10 goals and vice versa, there are too few times to defeat the opponent’s goalkeeper. Donny van de Beek scored against Crystal Palace in a 1-3 defeat and Bruno Fernandes took the penalty in a 1-6 defeat to Tottenham that was a rare positive image at Old Trafford.

MU will have to relieve this pressure after the team game when they welcome West Brom, the team has yet to win any season. Then the matches against Man City, Leeds, Wolves, and Aston Villa are in high form when the Premier League schedule does not have much time to rest.

So far, 5 teams have not won at home, including Brighton, West Brom, Sheffield United, and Burnley, while Man City and Tottenham have only one victory.

Thus, MU is at the bottom of the table at home, conceding the most goals. In contrast, four teams, including MU, Aston Villa, Leicester, and Tottenham, boast a 100% away record, a sign that the lack of fans continues to affect the entire tournament.

MU is concerned about the attitude and lifestyle Greenwood

MU is increasingly concerned about Mason Greenwood’s attitude as the striker continues to go through a difficult period in his young career.

MU is concerned about the attitude and lifestyle Greenwood

Greenwood was not included in the MU squad that won Everton 3-1 on Saturday on the grounds of being ill. However, it is understood that the 19-year-old’s performance during Friday’s training session was below normal.

For his part, MU denied Monday’s rumors that Greenwood had argued with Bruno Fernandes during the training session at Carrington after failing to follow a pass from his teammates.

Greenwood worries MU about his lifestyle

At MU, there are concerns about Greenwood’s lifestyle, namely that his sleeping and resting time is not enough to maintain his highest form. In other words, the youngster needs to spend more time with the club.

The reason Benzema told his teammates not to pass to Vinicius

Benzema does not have the right to replace coach Zinedine Zidane to instruct players how to play. However, when watching Vinicius continuously perform disappointing football in the context of Real at a disadvantage. The French striker was forced to speak.

Those statistics do not please the fans. Vinicius played too poorly and did not make any mark on Real Madrid’s attacking front. Watching Vinicius continuously handle the failure, Benzema could no longer keep his composure. Real’s No 9 asked Ferland Mendy not to pass the ball to Vinicius Jr in a 2-2 draw with Monchengladbach in the Champions League.

He hopes his colleague will pass the ball to him more, instead of regularly coordinating with Vinicius, who plays with Mendy. After the break, Sports Mail statistics Vinicius also received 3 passes from Mendy.

Before that, in the super classic match, Mendy had 18 passes for Vinicius. Meeting Monchengladbach, the French defender continued to make 13 passes towards his young teammate.

Vinicius is also backed by Benzema. Clash with Barca, the 32-year-old striker has 13 passes for the younger brother. To the match against Monchengladbach, Benzema only sent the ball to the position of the Brazilian goalscorer 5 times.

These numbers point to a major rift between Benzema and Vinicius. The former Lyon star seems to lose the trust of the young Real star.

From the match against Barca to Monchengladbach, Vinicius was disappointed. He missed many opportunities and wasted the effort that his teammates created.

Midfielder Federico Valverde bold breakthrough on the right wing and passed Vinicius inside the penalty area. The 20-year-old Brazilian striker finished the artist, but it was a bad handling phase.

The ball flew over the bar, and at the same time kicked Real’s chance to score. That treatment is not conclusive enough for anything. If he did not pass the wrong address, this player made a very unreasonable decision.

After the incident above, Real began to reveal a major weakness. They have plenty of staff to serve public goods, but lack quality. With Vinicius, he is placed in a professional environment and surrounded by big names. The Brazilian striker can absolutely learn many things from his teammates.

Real needs quality cards who can open the door to lead the home team to victory. That’s what the French striker wanted to convey to Vinicius.

Dybala is the second most valuable, and Ronaldo is the 7th

Napoli midfielder Kalidou Koulibaly and Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic are listed as Italy’s fifth most valuable player at € 65 million. This number is a bit lower than the suggestion that Man City gave Napoli to have a Senegal player.

What is Messi’s market value right now?
