Reviewing all big weekend matches across the top five leagues. City welcomed Liverpool to the Etihad, Arsenal hosted Leeds and Tuchel had a big test on his Bayern debut. The Weekend Soccer Roundup:
Man City vs Liverpool
Liverpool traveled to the Etihad for the second time this season. Salah’s 17th minute dagger was canceled out 10 minutes later by a well worked City goal scored by Julian Alvarez.
It didn’t take long for City to take the lead after the second half commenced. De Bruyne converted a lovely cross by Mahrez.
Soon after, Gundogan gave the Citizens a third in the and an outstanding performance from Jack Grealish was topped off with a goal.
City remain nine points behind Arsenal. But nevertheless a win in one of the toughest remaining fixtures is always a positive.
Arsenal vs Leeds
Arteta’s men continue their title charge with a four-one victory over Leeds United. Goals from Gabriel Jesus, Ben White as well as Granit Xhaka gave the Gunners the win.
Chelsea vs Villa
John McGinn and Villa upset Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Unai Emery’s team won two nil and put on a complete performance. Meanwhile Graham Potter must urgently find solutions to get his team playing well on a consistent basis if he wants to keep his job.
Thomas Tuchel and Bayern put on a show for their fans. They beat Dortmund four two and now sit two points clear at the top of the table. Many may say that Bayern are going to run away with the league due to recent history. However, I think that there’s still going to be some slip ups from Bayern. Due to the fact that it’s a new manager and system.
The Weekend Soccer Roundup: Elche vs Barca
Barca temporarily move 15 points clear of Real Madrid after putting four past Elche. The La Liga title race is unquestionably finished. It’s a matter of time till Barca are mathematically confirmed as champions.
Former Milan midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura netted a 53rd minute header to sink Inter at the San Siro. Napoli face Milan on Sunday and the result of that match can significantly impact the top four race.
Juventus surprisingly move three points away from the Europa League spot after their victory against Hellas Verona despite their points deduction months ago. Of course there’s still a long way to go but it’s very impressive from Allegri and his team.
