Match of the Mid-Week

Juventus V Barcelona

Juventus v Barcelona - 28/10/2020 20:00
MY11 SAY 2-1

The big game everyone has been waiting for is here, as Juventus will be welcoming Lionel Messi led Barcelona to the Allianz Stadium on Wednesday night.

 

In 11 Champions League meetings between these two teams, Juventus have won 3 games, while Barcelona have won 4 matches, with the remaining 4 games ending in a draw. The Old Lady scored 10 goals in those matches and the Catalan giants scored 13 goals.

 

Ronaldo will miss this game after testing positive for COVID-19. Juventus will also be without Matthijs de Ligt, Alex Sandro, and Giorgio Chiellini due to injury, while Leonardo Bonucci is a doubt. Philippe Coutinho has picked muscle injury and won't play for Barcelona, while Gerard Pique is suspended.

 

This was meant to be the battle between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but the absence of the Portuguese is a major blow. With Barcelona's poor run of form and Pique’s suspension, the Old Lady may just edge this encounter.

Man Utd V Chelsea

Man United and Chelsea end in stalemate in a controversial match - RESULT: 0 - 0

Man United and Chelsea end in stalemate in a controversial match

The biggest game of matchday 6 between Manchester United and Chelsea ended in a goalless draw as the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) controversially ignored a penalty call for the visitors.

 

Both goalkeepers did not have much to do all 90 minutes, but Chelsea sho stopper Eduardo Mendy made a great save late on in the encounter to deny Marcus Rashford the winner for the Red Devils.

 

 

Chelsea thought they had a penalty in the first half after Manchester United captain Harry Maguire grabbed Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta in the 18-yard box, but VAR did not review the incident, and the game ended goalless.

 

Do you think VAR should have awarded a penalty?
