A wonderful morning to you all as we check out the results of the football matches played yesterday. There were lots of exciting results, ride with us as we unleash them…
Staring from the Serie A…
Juventus returned to the top of the table, going one point above second Lazio after beating Inter Milan 2-0 in a match that was played behind closed doors because of the outbreak of coronavirus.
Aaron Ramsey and Paulo Dybala got on the scoresheet for the Old Lady as they moved to 63 points, one point ahead of Lazio having played the same amount of matches. Inter Milan though have a game in hand look likely to have been thrown away in the Serie A title race after going nine points behind Maurizio Sarri’s side. They were lacklustre and they lacked the cutting edge in Turin last night.
Moving to La Liga now…
Real Betis stunned Real Madrid with a 2-1 home victory as Christian Tello’s second-half goal proved decisive enough to condemn Madrid to defeat.
Karim Benzema scored from the spot to equalise Sidnei’s wonderful first strike but it was Tello that would have the last laugh and Madrid are now two points behind table leaders Barcelona in 56 points as the table continues to take twists, Betis meanwhile moved to 12th with 33 points.
In the Bundesliga…
Bayern Munich extended their lead on the top of the table to four points after beating Augsburg 2-0 thanks to goals from Thomas Muller and Leon Goretzka. Hansi Flick’s side celebrated their 120th anniversary with a needed victory that took them to 55 points at the top of the table with Borussia Dortmund the closest team to them with 51 points. RB Leipzig have 50 points.
In the Premier League…
Manchester United beat Manchester City as goalkeeper Ederson made two errors that led to both of the Old Trafford’s side goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay.
United completed their first league double over City for the first time since 2009/10 season. They’ve also gone the last 10 matches across all competitions without losing. What a way for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to continue his rebuild at the club and what a time to be a Manchester United fan.
City maintained their position, second with 57 points, 25 points behind table leaders Liverpool who will now need just two more wins to claim the Premier League title. United however moved to fifth on the table with 45 points, three points behind fourth placed Chelsea who are with 48 points after thrashing Everton 4-0 at Stamford Bridge, running riot thanks to goals from Mason Mount, Pedro, Willian and Olivier Giroud as youngster Billy Gilmour who made his Premier League debut put in a man-of-the-match performance.
It was the first time Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti would return to the Stamford Bridge since he was left several years ago and the night didn’t end well for him. They maintained 12th position with 37 points.
The race for the top-four is on and as it stands, Leicester would be dragged into it if they fail to win against Aston Villa tonight. Chelsea, Manchester United, Wolverhampton, Sheffield United, Tottenham and perhaps Arsenal are all in contention for only one spot. It will be interesting to see how it all ends at the end of the season.
