2021-02-16 Football

La Beniamata’s hardwork finally paid off this weekend. They managed to topple AC Milan from the top after they dismantled Lazio 3-1 at their home turf. Romelu Lukaku was the man of the match by burying the goal twice plus providing one assist for the third goal by Lautaro Martinez.  Meanwhile, few hours earlier Rossonerro slumped to a shocking 0-2 defeat from Spezia on the road through Guilio Maggiore and Simone Bastoni. Despsite playing Ibrahimovic and then Mario Madzukic plus Hakan Calhanoglu and Rafael Leao on the front, they were unable to find the back of the net. The reigning Champions, Juventus also suffered a vital loss while travelling to Napoli. A single penalty goal by Lorenzo Insigne made the difference.

Meanwhile, in Ligue 1, the lady luck seems to be on PSG’s side since their two contenders, Lille and Lyon failed to capitalise maximum points last weekend while PSG carried on winning. Pocchettino’s men crushed Nice 2-1 by Julian Draxler’s and Moise Kean’s goal with Rony Lopes’ equaliser in between. Lille could only muster a goalless draw while hosting Brest. At the same time, Lyon was even thumped 1-2 by Montpellier at home. The vistors took the lead by Teji Savanier’s header. Lucas Paqueta managed to equalise just before a half time but the nightmare came when Montpellier’s free kick was denied by Anthony Lopes yet then bounced back to the crowd in front of him. Sepe Wahi tapped in the ball into the back of the net. Les Gones now are sloping to the third while Le Parisien climbed to the second.
