Atl Madrid V Barcelona

Madrid end 10-year run to beat Barcelona in La Liga - RESULT: 1 - 0

Capital club Atletico Madrid ended their ten years winless run against Barcelona in the Spanish top-flight division, as they defeated the Catalan giants 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Saturday night.

 

The goal came just seconds before the half time whistle, following a long ball by Angel Correa to Yannick Carrasco, and Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen was in no man’s land, way outside his post. Carrasco rounded him and hit the ball into an empty net, about 30 yards away from the goal line.

 

 

Atletico Madrid moved to second on the log, with 20 points in 8 games, while Barcelona are 10th on the log with 11 points in 8 matches, and could drop 4 places, depending on results from other matches.

 

What do you think is Barcelona’s problem?

Joao Felix, Lionel Messi

Who will come out top between Messi and Felix?

The Spanish La Liga returns from the international break and the game to watch will be Barcelona traveling to the capital city to face off with Atlético Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium. My11 take a look at who will come out tops between Lionel Messi and Joao Felix.

 

Both Messi and Felix have played 10 games in all competitions this season, and they both have a hand in 10 goals for their respective clubs so far.

 

Joao Felix is the joint top scorer in La Liga for Atlético with 5 goals - along with former Barcelona star, Luis Suarez, who tested positive for COVID-19 - but the Portuguese young star is the top scorer in all competitions with 7 goals, and he has provided 3 assists.

 

Lionel Messi, on the other, is not Barcelona's top scorer in the league, but he is the highest goalscorer in all competitions with 6 goals, and he has provided 4 assists.

 

The Argentine is regarded as the greatest player of all time by some fans, while the young Portuguese is dubbed the next Cristiano Ronaldo. Both players will love to shine in this encounter.

 

Who do you think will shine between Messi and Felix?

Match of the Week

Atl Madrid V Barcelona

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona 21/11/2020 21:00
MY11 SAY 1-1 DRAW

The Wanda Metropolitano will be the venue as Atletico Madrid will be welcoming Barcelona to the capital city in a classic La Liga clash on Saturday.

 

In the last 29 La Liga meetings between these two teams, Atletico Madrid have won only 4 games, while Barcelona have won 17 matches, with the other 7 ending in a draw. The capital clubs have not defeated the Catalan giants in the Spanish league in ten years.

 

Atleti will be without Luis Suarez and Lucas Torreira, who both tested positive for Coronavirus, while Stefan Savic, Hector Herrera, Sime Vrsaljko, and Mario Hermoso are out due to injury, while Diego Costa is a major doubt. Barcelona, on the other hand, will miss Sergio Busquets, Ansu Fati, and Ronald Araujo due to injury.

 

Diego Simeone has not defeated Barcelona in the La Liga since he took charge of the club, and will want to pick all 3 points while the Catalan giants are vulnerable, but it is a big task as Suarez will be missing. This will be an enticing clash.

 

You can catch the game live on DSTV channel 204, SuperSport La Liga on Saturday November 21 2020, by 9 pm Naija time.

In 46 Premier League meetings between these two teams, Tottenham have won 24 games, while Manchester City have won 15 matches, while the other 7 games ended in a draw. The Cityzens have won 3 of their last 5 clashes, while Spurs won their last encounter.

Man City, on the other hand, will be without Nathan Aké due to injury, while Raheem Sterling, Sergio Agüero, Fernandinho, and Benjamin Mendy are all major doubts.

Match of the Week

Napoli V AC Milan

Napoli v AC Milan 22/11/2020 20:45
MY11 SAY 2-1

Victor Osimhen’s Napoli will be welcoming table-toppers AC Milan to the San Paolo Stadium on Sunday night in a bid to go to the top of the Serie A table.

 

In the last 26 Serie A meetings between these two teams, Napoli have won 10 games, while Milan have won half of that (5), with the other 11 matches ending in a draw. 4 of their last 6 clashes have ended in a draw.

 

Napoli will be without Naija star Victor Osimhen, who picked up an injury in Nigeria’s 4-4 draw against Sierra Leone. Tiemoué Bakayoko will also miss due to injury, while Elseid Hysaj tested positive for COVID-19. Milan on the other hand, have a full squad ahead of this clash.

 

Both teams are in good form in the league with Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspiring the away side, but this looks like a game Napoli will edge with a slim margin.

What next for Naija Super Eagles coach after Sierra Leone draw?

The Naija Super Eagles played back to back draw with Sierra Leone – 4-4 in Benin and 0-0 in Freetown – and there are calls to sack Gerot Rohr if Nigeria fail to qualify for the 2022 African Cup of Nations.

 

Following the 4-4 draw at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin, the minister for Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, said, only a win in Freetown will be acceptable, while the president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Melvin Pinnick said the team must win 4-0. But after a goalless draw, what next for Gernot Rohr?

 

The German gaffer looks incapable of making some in-game decisions, and it has caused the Super Eagles some important games, like the loss to Argentina at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, and the loss to Algeria at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt. Now, the Naija national team surrendered a 4-0 lead to play out a 4-4 draw.

 

Nigeria need 2 points from the last 2 games against the Benin Republic and Lesotho, should the Super Eagles fail to qualify for the 2022 AFCON, Rohr will definitely be sacked, although some people are already calling for his sack on social media.

 

Do you think Nigeria should Sack Gernot Rohr?
