This figure is even better than the attack of Barcelona with 48.3 percent. 2 goals from Xhaka and Aubameyang made MU fall to 5th place in the Premier League rankings. However, according to newly released statistics, Man United is suddenly the team with the best finishing ability in Europe.

The percentage of shots on goal of Man City, the leading team in the Premier League, is only 12th with 42.7 percent. Meanwhile, Liverpool ranked fifth with 45.6 percent. The team beat MU in the match in round 30 Premier League, Arsenal ranked in 20th place with 42.1 percent.

However, this ratio also points to a problem in the scoring phase of Man United. They have many finishes but the danger to create a goal is not high. It is also considered one of the reasons why they lost to Arsenal despite the many opportunities.

Man United will have a relatively important match against Wolves this weekend in the FA Cup quarter-finals. The president of Spain’s highest division gives the most fierce criticism to Man City and PSG. Those are the two teams that he thinks are putting the football industry at risk by their huge spending power and methods.

In addition, Javier Tebas also criticized five big English teams for being dishonest in this regard. They did not explicitly assert their views on the Super League.

According to Tebas, if the Super League tournament is put into official competition, it will ruin domestic football. Because then the big teams will put all their energy into this tournament, while using Team B for domestic matches.

Midfielder Fred believes that Man Utd will successfully defend his position in the top 4 of the Premier League to attend the Champions League next season.

Fred is excited about Man Utd attending the Champions League next season

Man Utd is third in the Premier League. They need at least one draw at Leicester Stadium in the last round to win tickets to the Champions League. If Man Utd loses and Chelsea beat Wolves in the match at the same time, Fred and his teammates will lose interest.

The upcoming match is also the occasion for Fred’s teammate – center-back Harry Maguire – to meet the old club. Man Utd spent $ 97 million to recruit Maguire from Leicester in the summer of 2019. England midfielder immediately became a mainstay in the defense. In the first leg, he helped Man Utd defeat Leicester 1-0.

Regarding the opponent, Fred particularly noted striker Jamie Vardy – who is leading the race to the Premier League scorer with 23 goals.

Solskjaer is expected to gradually bring Man Utd back to the previous position

Currently, with the third place in the Premier League, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits the distance from Man Utd to the two leading teams is really far.

Man Utd is third in the Premier League. If they do not lose on the pitch of Leicester in the final round on Sunday 26/7, they will successfully defend the position and ticket to the Champions League – the biggest goal this season.

The progress of Man Utd is something that can be seen this season, even with an unbeaten period throughout 13 matches. However, it is also not really stable. Recently, former defender Gary Neville suggested that Man Utd need to buy three to four top players to improve the squad quality.

After the Premier League, Man Utd will return to the Europa League with the return leg of the round of 1/8. In the first leg, Solskjaer and his students won 5-0 at Lask. The tournament takes place from August 5 to August 21.

Messi and Ronaldo are less affected when canceling the Golden Ball

According to Spanish daily Marca, Kevin De Bruyne, Robert Lewandowski, Sergio Ramos, and Karim Benzema regret the most when the 2020 Golden Ball was canceled.

Lewandowski is the Bundesliga top scorer and has been the recipient of the European Golden Shoe this season.

Since 2007, Messi and Ronaldo, each one has only been absent in the top 3 voted Ballon d’Or. The two superstars took turns holding the noble title: Messi six times and Ronaldo five times. Over the course of 13 years, the number one position only two times escaped from the hands of the duo, namely Kaka in 2007 and Luka Modric in 2018.

Benzema and Ramos have the most scoring seasons of their career

Because of the stability of Messi and Ronaldo, those who played outstanding in the 2019-2020 season have a reason to regret not being able to break the dominance of the superstar duo.

Lewandowski is an example. The Polish striker has scored 34 goals this season, helping Bayern Munich to win the Bundesliga. He won the title of top scorer in the Bundesliga and in the morning received another Golden shoes. Besides, “Gray Lobster” almost put a foot in the Champions League quarter-finals, after winning Chelsea 3-0 first leg round 1/8. Former Borussia Dortmund striker has the right to dream about this treble.

Like Lewandowski, Ramos and Benzema also had a memorable year. Together they helped Real overtake Barca in La Liga, and achieved the best scoring performance of their career. Thanks to goals from Ramos and Benzema, Real won a series of 11 wins, while also lighting up hope of reversing the game against Man City in the Champions League.

With De Bruyne, the Belgian midfielder returned strong after the 2018-2019 season struggled with injury. The core of Pep Guardiola’s play is the Premier League assist king this season, with 18 cleanups for his teammates. He also ranked fourth on Man City’s scoring list, after three forwards Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, and Sergio Aguero.

The common point of the four names listed by Marca is that they all won the titles in the 2019-2020 season, and Messi, Ronaldo has not. Messi’s Barca was soon knocked out of the King’s Cup, finished second in La Liga, and had yet to return to the eighth round of the Champions League with Napoli.

Real is getting closer to La Liga when winning over Granada

Zinedine Zidane’s teachers defeated Granada with a score of 2-1 in the 36th round of La Liga on July 13, recreating a four-point gap with Barca before the last two rounds.

Real even opened the scoring on the 10th. Left-back Ferland Mendy soloed through two opposing players, then shot from a narrow-angle to hit the top of Granada’s net.

The match

In this match, Mendy started the match with Marcelo injured. The opening goal showed that the French defender completely deserved the faith of coach Zidane.

Soon to find inspiration, Real continued to press down on Granada. They just need to wait another six minutes to double the gap. After escaping down the left edge of the penalty area, Benzema cut his right foot to beat the goalkeeper Rui Silva.

Granada also staged several dangerous attacks, but not enough to score in the first half. Real defense, especially goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, excellent prevent any intrusive intent of the home team.

Coach Zidane launched Rodrygo and Asensio in the middle of the second half, but their youth could not help Real improve the attacking front. Granada continued to put the visitors in the defensive position.

The defense once again became a fulcrum for Real

Patiently defending to the last minute, Real defended was a 2-1 victory. This is the most important step of the season when they reached 83 points – more than four points compared to Barca before the last two rounds.

Real only need to beat Villarreal at home on July 16, or Leganes on July 19 to take the throne. Zidane and his students can also win the match by drawing the last two matches, due to more than Barca.

Van Persie dismissed Messi and Ronaldo from the Golden Ball award

Former Arsenal and Man Utd striker Robin van Persie selected Robert Lewandowski as the number one candidate for the Golden Ball 2020 title.

Van Persie has been successful for many years in the Premier League

In addition to the two Bundesliga titles and the National Cup, Lewandowski also heads to the Champions League. The Polish striker is also leading two individual races: European Golden Shoes and Champions League top scorer.

De Bruyne, Man City midfielder, is outstanding with 11 goals and 18 assists. His team won the League Cup, competing for the FA Cup final and Champions League quarter-finals.

Mane is an important factor that helped Liverpool to win England for the first time in 30 years, with a record of 16 goals and seven assists. However, the Senegal striker no longer had the chance to win other titles. Liverpool was soon eliminated in the Cup competitions.

Messi is facing the risk of ending the 2019-2020 season with empty hands on the collective title. Barca were eliminated early in the King’s Cup, and four points behind Real in La Liga.

The owner of the Golden Ball 2019 only featured in personal performance: 22 goals and 19 times to clear the deck in La Liga. Meanwhile, Ronaldo owns 26 goals in 27 Serie A matches for Juventus. His team is likely to win Serie A, while still competing for tickets to the Champions League quarter-finals.
