Ronaldo’s penalty kicks salvage draw for Juventus against Atalanta

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo converted two penalty kicks, both awarded for handballs, with the second in the last minute on Saturday, as Serie A leaders Juventus twice hit back to draw 2-2 with Atalanta.The draw helped the defending champions to move closer to a ninth successive Serie A title. The Portuguese forward took his league tally to 28 goals this season as Juventus went eight points clear of second-placed Lazio with six matches to play.Atalanta are a further point back in third after being denied a 10th successive league win.Both handballs were clearly accidental but, under the current rules, referee Piero Giacomelli had no option but to award the penalty kicks.However, it was rough justice on Atalanta.The team, which leads Serie A in scoring, would have climbed into second place and cut the gap between themselves and Juventus to six points if they had won. Juventus, humbled 4-2 at AC Milan on Tuesday, dropped Miralem Pjanic but were quickly forced onto the back foot by a typically audacious Atalanta side.Duvan Zapata put the visitors ahead in the 16th minute.An intricate exchange of passes with Alejandro Gomez opened up the Juventus defence before the Colombian slotted his shot past Wojciech Szczesny.The visitors continued to pen Juventus into their half, enjoying 58 per cent possession and five shots to the home team’s one before half-time.They however went on to fall foul of the handball rule 10 minutes after the break. Paulo Dybala fired a cross against Marten de Roon’s elbow.Although it was at point-blank range and the Dutchman’s arm was close to his chest, the referee immediately pointed to the penalty kick spot.Ronaldo smashed home the penalty kick, scoring for the sixth game in a row.The game opened up, with Atalanta regaining the lead in the 81st minute when Luis Muriel sent a pass across the face of the penalty area to Ruslan Malinovskyi.RelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Juve’s Pirlo gamble makes new Serie A season the most open for years He took it in his stride before firing a right foot shot past Szczesny.But lightning struck a second time for Atalanta when Gonzalo Higuain got his foot to a corner kick and deflected the ball onto Muriel’s hand.The Colombian did not have time to get his hand out of the way but, as it was outstretched, the penalty kick had to be given and Ronaldo converted in the 90th minute.Reuters/NAN.Tags: AtalantaCristiano RonaldoDuvan ZapataJuventusPaul DybalaSerie Alast_img read more

Wenger: Luck was on City’s side

first_img City took full advantage of Arsenal’s midweek 2-2 draw at Southampton to thump Spurs at White Hart Lane and move a point ahead at the top of the Barclays Premier League. Afterwards, Spurs manager Tim Sherwood hailed Manuel Pellegrini’s men as “the best team on the planet”. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger understands why “on fire” Manchester City are winning all the plaudits, but believes on another day they would not have romped to a 5-1 victory at Tottenham. Wenger, though, feels the final scoreline does not tell the whole story. Spurs had a goal from Michael Dawson – which would have levelled the match at 1-1 – disallowed, before City benefited from a controversial penalty award at the start of the second half. The assistant referee ruled that defender Danny Rose had fouled Edin Dzeko, but replays showed Rose had touched the ball and on Friday the red card he was shown was rescinded. City managed 24 shots and 66 per cent possession, but Wenger believes the match could have gone in a different direction. “Everybody speaks of course that they had an impressive win, and a great quality game as well at Tottenham, but if you analyse it well this game could have turned,” said Wenger. “All the turning points went in their favour. If they had not, then you are not sure they would have won the game.” With City hosting third-placed Chelsea on Monday night, Arsenal could go back to the top of the table if they beat Crystal Palace on Sunday. Wenger challenged his men to focus on their own performances rather than worry about what City might produce. “At the moment they are on fire, but I believe we have just to focus on our own run because if you look at the schedule if we are consistent we have a good chance to do it,” said Wenger. “You cannot speculate on any weakness in Man City in the coming months, so let’s focus on us and our strengths. “I believe we can (win the title) if we keep the consistency and manage to win the big games – one of them will be Man City at home, and of course that will be very important.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

SHOCKING:Marseille forced to take Andre Ayew out of match when they ran out of clean shirts

first_imgMarseille reopened the Stade Velodrome after stunning renovations (the pictures here are worth drooling over) by hosting Montpellier.UEFA president Michel Platini was in the house for the occasion, but the match was one that the home side will hope to forget. Losing 2-0 to Montpellier was bad enough, and Andre Ayew’s laundry issues made it that much worse.The Ghanaian World Cup star suffered a head wound during the first half, requiring him to changed his shirt and have his head wrapped so he could continue. During the second half, the wound reopened and he again had to change his blood stained shirt.But there was a problem: Marseille only had two No. 10 shirts for him and he had already bled all over both of them. The club’s kitman pulled out a No. 33 shirt, but since Ayew began the match wearing the No. 10, he had to finish with the same number. So, they attempted the futile task of trying to turn a 33 into a 10. It didn’t work, so Marseille had to substitute Ayew in the 52nd minute, enraging always enraged new manager Marcelo Bielsa.None too pleased himself, Ayew took his seat on the bench wearing just his bib with no shirt under it.   .On the bright side, maybe Ayew was so frustrated by this bizarre turn of events that he was able to forget how much his head hurt for a little while.last_img read more

Conte admits Premier League could be out of Chelsea’s reach

first_imgThe win leaves defending champions Chelsea third on 32 points, eight behind pacesetters Manchester City, after six wins in their past seven Premier League matches.“I am happy, but you know very well that there is a team in this league that is doing extraordinary things and it’s Manchester City,” said Conte. “Otherwise, I think we are staying up there with the other teams.”Chelsea host Atletico on Tuesday in their last Champions League group match knowing that a win will guarantee them top spot in Group C ahead of Serie A side Roma, and a Hazard display against the Spaniards similar to Saturday’s would go a long way to securing Chelsea first place.“Eden enjoys playing our type of football,” said Conte.“He is an important player for us. We can change our system around him. He can play as a second striker or he can play as a number 10 when we play 3-4-3.” He insisted his side had come up against a team that will finish in the top three this season.“Chelsea have a lot of good things,” he said. “They have to compete for the title. It is obvious that they are one of the teams that will be there in the top three, but we began well and it was a pity that we couldn’t keep the lead for a while.“It’s not a problem of confidence with my team, it’s a problem of the level of the Premier League. You could see the team working really hard even at the end. We finished with two corners and we were still trying.”Share on: WhatsApp Antonio Conte admits defending the Premier league title won’t be easyLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Antonio Conte admits retaining the Premier League title may be out of Chelsea’s reach despite an impressive recent run of results ahead of their midweek Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.The Blues fought back from a goal down on Saturday to beat Newcastle 3-1 courtesy of two goals from the impressive Eden Hazard either side of a headed effort from Alvaro Morata.center_img Conte said it would be special to see Hazard in action for Belgium against England at the World Cup next year, joking that he would have to ask his Chelsea team-mates Gary Cahill and Danny Drinkwater to treat him gently.“Gary knows very well Eden’s skill and for this reason, he must pay great attention. Every day to have a training session with this type of player and this skill makes you stronger.”Despite a bright start for Newcastle, Rafa Benitez’s side slumped to their fifth defeat in six league games, a run that has seen them drop into the bottom half of the table.Benitez, who won the Europa League with Chelsea is his spell as interim manager at Stamford Bridge four years ago, was in combative mood afterwards.last_img read more
