Sports / Empoli Vs Napoli 0-2 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 8:40pm On Feb 25, 2023
Victor Osimhen scored one and helped prompt an own goal, as Napoli emerged with a 2-0 victory from Empoli, but Mario Rui was sent off for a foolish reaction foul.
Napoli travelled to mid-table Empoli on Saturday evening and made no mistake, taking charge of the game early on and controlling it for large swathes of the contest.

Spalletti’s charges took the lead on 17 minutes when Ardian Ismajli sliced Piotr Zielinski’s cross into his own net.

The advantage was doubled on 28 minutes by Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian has been catching the eye after breaking Serie A speed records this term.

He is pretty efficient in front of goal too, and was on hand to stab the ball home after Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s shot from the edge of the box had been parried into his path by Empoli goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario.

Napoli were never threatened in the second half, although there was a sour note for the league leaders as Mario Rui was shown a straight red card for lashing out at Francesco Caputo on 68 minutes.

The win enabled Napoli to extend their lead in Serie A to 18 points over Inter Milan who face Bologna on Sunday.

Sports / Manchester United Vs Barcelona 2-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:17pm On Feb 23, 2023
Manchester United fight back to make it through to the last 16 of the Europa League after a 2-1 victory against Barcelona (4-3 on aggregate) at Old Trafford.
Bruno Fernandes had an early chance in the opening minutes after a pinpoint ball from Casemiro evaded Barcelona’s defence.

The Portuguese midfielder got a shot off, but Marc-André ter Stegen managed to make himself big, and save it with his right leg.

In the 18th minute, Robert Lewandowski scored his first Europa League goal of the season after Fernandes pulled back

Alejandro Balde’s arm in the box, conceding a penalty. David De Gea got a hand on Lewandowski’s shot from the spot, but the ball hit the inner post before going in.

It was an instant response from United after the break, with Fred scoring the equaliser in the 47th minute, after Fernandes’ pass was

straight into the path of the Brazilian, who took a nice touch before the ball hit his shin and sped past Ter Stegen into the bottom corner.

Antony, who came on for Wout Weghorst at half-time, scored United’s winner in the 73rd minute.

Luke Shaw managed to keep the ball in play with a backheel to Fernandes who brushed aside Raphinha to set up Alejandro Garnacho.

The youngster’s shot is blocked, as is Fred’s follow-up, before it rolls out to Antony. He manages to curl an effort around Ter Stegen and into the left corner.

Sports / RB Leipzig Vs Manchester City 1-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:32pm On Feb 22, 2023
RB Leipzig fought back to claim a 1-1 draw against Manchester City in the first leg of their Last-16 Champions League tie.
The reigning Premier League champions were utterly dominant throughout the first period at the Red Bull Arena and deservedly went in ahead at the interval.

A mistake by Xaver Schlager allowed Jack Grealish and Ilkay Gundogan to combine and set up Riyad Mahrez to clinically fire home on 27 minutes.

It was the Algerian’s 20th goal in the competition overall and his 12th of what is turning into a highly productive campaign for the 32-year-old.

Leipzig improved dramatically in the second half and should have levelled when substitute Benjamin Henrichs rolled a

gilt-edged opportunity just wide on 55 minutes.

Ederson then denied Andre Gomes from a narrow angle before the peripheral Haaland dragged a good chance wide for the visitors.

Die Roten Bullen continued to cause problems and levelled 20 minutes from time when Josko Gvardiol headed home a left-wing cross.

Guardiola will again be frustrated that his side’s overall dominance did not get the reward they deserved following a similar

outcome at Nottingham Forest at the weekend, but he will be quietly confident his team will complete the job in the second leg of this tie on March 14.

Sports / Liverpool Vs Real Madrid 2-5 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:34pm On Feb 21, 2023
Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema both were on target as Real Madrid hit back from two down to claim a sensational 5-2 victory at Liverpool at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side had initially looked up to the challenge and roared out the traps with Darwin Nunez opening the scoring courtesy of a sublime backheel flick from Mo Salah’s low pass.

The Egyptian then doubled the home side’s lead on 14 minutes when he capitalised on a howler from goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois.

It was Salah’s 42nd goal for Liverpool in the competition, which saw him become the club’s all-time leading scorer in Europe.

Real had looked set to be blown away at this juncture, but soon recovered and reduced the arrears on 21 minutes when a piece of individual genius resulted in Vinicius thundering a wonderful effort into the far corner from the left side of the box.

The 22-year-old Real forward then silenced Anfield 15 minutes later when he inadvertently deflected Alisson’s dreadful attempt at a pass to the right flank into an empty net.

It had been a breathless, even spectacle up to the interval but the visitors moved up a gear in the second period and ripped through the Merseysiders at will.

First, Eder Militao headed home Luka Modric’s left-wing free-kick on 47 minutes before Benzema pretty much put the tie out of sight.

The Frenchman saw his first goal deflect in off Joe Gomez and then helped himself to a double 23 minutes from time when he side-stepped Alisson to gleefully fire into an empty net following another ruthless counter attack.

The result leaves Liverpool with an absolute mountain to climb ahead of the second leg at the Bernabeu on Wednesday, March 15.

Klopp’s men will now turn their attention back to their push for a top-four spot when they visit Crystal Palace on Saturday evening. Real host Atletico in the Madrid derby.

Sports / Man United Vs Leicester City 3-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 5:52pm On Feb 19, 2023
A brace from Marcus Rashford and a goal from Jadon Sancho earned Manchester United a 3-0 win against Leicester City as they closed the gap on Manchester City to just three points.
The visitors were very much on top in the first half, with United requiring two top saves from David De Gea to keep the game level, the best of which was a superb reflex save to keep Kelechi Iheanacho‘s header out.

The hosts made Leicester pay for their missed chances by taking the lead after 25 minutes, Bruno Fernandes playing a delightful ball with the outside of his foot into Rashford who fired it past Danny Ward and into the back of the net.

Erik ten Hag‘s side were much better in the second half and they came out on the front foot, looking to extend their lead from the first whistle.

After 56 minutes United doubled their advantage. Fred played in Rashford who was able to calmly slide past Danny Ward.

Just five minutes later United had a third and perhaps the pick of the bunch.

Sancho played the ball into Fernandes who smartly played it back into the path of Sancho in the box to stroke it home first time into the bottom corner.

Ten Hag‘s side didn’t relent and continued to push forward in search of a fourth goal, with Wout Weghorst coming close on a couple of occasions.

The game finished 3-0, seeing United close the gap on crosstown rivals City and move just five points behind league leaders Arsenal.

Sports / Newcastle Vs Liverpool 0-2 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 8:56pm On Feb 18, 2023
Liverpool reignited their top-four hopes with an impressive 2-0 victory as 10-man Newcastle saw goalkeeper Nick Pope sent off.
The Reds snatched the lead on 10 minutes when Darwin Nunez struck his first league goal since November 12 with a thumping effort that finished off Trent Alexander-Arnold’s sumptuous pass.

Cody Gakpo then stunned the St James’ Park faithful just seven minutes later when he made it two in two matches to polish off Mohamed Salah’s wonderful first-time pass.

Despite being a man down, the hosts still had plenty of opportunities in an action-packed first period.

Indeed, Alisson made brilliant saves to tip Allan Saint-Maximin’s shot onto the bar and thwart Miguel Almiron when the forward was clear on goal.

Dan Burn also hit the woodwork with a header as Newcastle continued to push for a way back into the contest.

The hosts looked the more likely in a more turgid second half with Fabian Schar nodding a free header wide, before Alisson again produced heroics to block substitute Callum Wilson’s shot.

Sports / Nottigham Forest Vs Manchester City 1-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 6:45pm On Feb 18, 2023
Chris Wood’s first goal in a Nottingham Forest shirt earned a point for his side against Manchester City, who failed to return to the top of the Premier League.
City dominated possession throughout and went in front when Bernardo Silva‘s sizzling shot from the edge of the area flew above Keylor Navas into the roof of the net.

The second half saw City hit the bar twice with Erling Haaland guilty of doing so from six yards out, and then missing a rebound, and Ilkay Gundogan seeing a free kick clip the woodwork.

A seemingly certain City victory was then dashed when Morgan Gibbs-White put in a perfect low cross from the right-hand side of the area which Newcastle loanee striker Wood tapped in.

Sports / Chelsea Vs Southampton 0-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 6:32pm On Feb 18, 2023
Southampton defeat Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge to move off the bottom of the Premier League table in a result rather overshadowed by the injury suffered by Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

Saints captain James Ward-Prowse scored the only goal of the game with a trademark brilliant free-kick right before half-time.

Chelsea had been dominated in the opening half and made a double substitution at the break.

Raheem Sterling was one of the players introduced, and he had three huge chances to equalise.

Each was cleared by a sensational Southampton intervention.

With 15 minutes to play, Azpilicueta was caught fully in the face by an attempted bicycle kick from Sekou Mara and had to be stretchered off after a 10 minute delay.

Chelsea continued to push, but the visitors dug deep to claim three well-earned points.

Arsenal fight back to scored twice in stoppage time to beat Aston Villa 4-2 to keep their Premier League title hopes alive.
It had looked like Arsenal’s winless run would stretch to four games in the league as they game ticked to full time with the score locked at 2-2.

However, first a stunning Jorginho effort came back off the crossbar and hit Emi Martinez on the back of the head before nestling in the back of the net.

Then, as Villa chased an equaliser, Arsenal broke and Gabriel Martinelli added a fourth to put the result beyond doubt.

Arsenal are three points above Manchester City with both teams having played 23 games.

Sports / Barcelona 2-2 Manchester United Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 9:12pm On Feb 16, 2023
Manchester United and Barcelona contested a thrilling first-leg draw at the Nou Camp to leave their Europa League play-off tie finely poised.
The chances flowed right from the first minute, with Robert Lewandowski having an early sighter for the hosts,

although his fierce drive was pushed away by David de Gea, while Marc-Andre ter Stegen denied Wout Weghorst at the other end.

The goalkeeper then made an even better save to deny Marcus Rashford and the visitors started to wrestle control of the momentum,

but they were unable to find a breakthrough before half-time, although Jordi Alba came to scoring for Barcelona with a shot that was saved.

Jadon Sancho wasted a golden opening after the interval, skewing wide of the near post when in acres of space,

and United were made to pay minutes later when Marcus Alonso headed the hosts in front.

Rashford ensured the visitors were back on level terms within two minutes though,

thundering a fierce shot past ter Stegen at his near post, before he turned creator, fizzing a low cross into the box that Jules Kounde diverted into his own net.

The hosts were all over the place and looked at risk of conceding every time they were asked to defend,

but they still carried a threat going forward and got an equaliser out of nowhere when Raphinha’s whipped cross crept in at the far post.

Barcelona wanted a penalty late on, after the ball appeared to hit Fred’s arm in the box.

Borussia Dortmund defeat Chelsea 1-0 in the Champions League last 16 first leg thanks to a stunning solo goal from Karim Adeyemi.

Adeyemi’s brilliantly executed goal midway through the second half dealt a further blow to Graham Potter’s Chelsea, who lost for the fourth time in 2023.

In the 37th minute, Joao Felix had Chelsea’s best chance when he crashed a shot off the crossbar.

Kai Havertz laid the ball off to the Portugal international on the break, but he was off balance and under heavy pressure from Marius Wolf when he got his shot away.

Chelsea looked re-energised in the opening stages of the second half and the visitors almost broke deadlock in the 55th minute.

Reece James’ swerving free-kick was parried over the bar by Gregor Kobel.

But it was Dortmund who went in front after a clinical counter-attack. From a Chelsea corner,

Adeyemi picked the ball up in his own half, outpaced Enzo Fernandez and rounded Kepa Arrizabalaga before slotting the ball into the empty net.

Chelsea almost found an equaliser in the 77th minute when Kalidou Koulibaly drove a shot on goal from close range,

but after it had squirmed away from Kobel, Emre Can slid in to clear off the line.

Sports / Real Madrid Vs Elche 4-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:27pm On Feb 15, 2023
Real Madrid romped to a 4-0 victory at home to struggling Elche to close the gap on La Liga leaders Barcelona to eight points.
Los Blancos took the lead after just eight minutes when Marco Asensio was able to dance past two Elche defenders before firing a low effort past Edgar Badia.

Madrid continued to push forward in search of goals against the team with the most goals conceded in La Liga and after half an hour they had a penalty.

Rodrygo was tripped in the box and Karim Benzema was on hand to step up and smash it home past Badia.

On the stroke of half-time Madrid had another penalty.

Benzema’s header struck the arm of Enzo Roca and the Frenchman stepped up to rifle home his second of the match, again from 12 yards.

Elche goalkeeper Badia kept the score down in the second half, making a string of superb saves – including two smart saves within a minute of each other to deny Rodrygo.

After 65 minutes Badia was once again called upon, this time the goalkeeper was on hand to deny an acrobatic Asensio effort that would have been a spectacular goal.

Real Madrid scored their fourth of the game 10 minutes from time when substitute Luka Modric received the ball on the edge of the box before firing a superb effort into the top corner.

Sports / Arsenal Vs Manchester City 1-3 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 10:54pm On Feb 15, 2023
Manchester City moved above Arsenal to go top of the Premier League table after a 3-1 win at the Emirates.
The Gunners made a lively start with Eddie Nketiah heading a good chance wide, but it was the visitors who took the lead on 24 minutes.

Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring early on before Bukayo Saka levelled for the Gunners in the first half.

Arsenal responded and after Tomiyasu blazed over an opportunity to redeem himself, the hosts levelled from the spot.

Bukayo Saka was coolness personified as he calmly sent Ederson the wrong way with a 42nd-minute penalty.

City were not to be denied, however, with Jack Grealish taking advantage of space on the left side of the area to slam a deflected shot past Ramsdale.

Haaland then made sure of the victory when he drilled in de Bruyne’s pass eight minutes from time.

The Gunners do have a game in hand, however, this will still feel like a bitter blow for Mikel Arteta’s men.

Kingsley Coman haunt Paris Saint-Germain once again as Bayern Munich won 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League Last 16 tie at the Parc des Princes.
PSG had been boosted by the news that Lionel Messi (hamstring) was fit to start but it was the pace of Kylian Mbappe, who was a surprise inclusion on the bench following a thigh problem, that they clearly missed in a one-sided first half.

Bayern dominated the ball and probed the hosts’ penalty area in the opening 45 with PSG lacking the mobility to force the visitors’ high line back.

However, the Bavarians had little to show for it in terms of clear-cut openings with Donnarumma’s fine save from Joshua Kimmich’s low drive the pick of their nine attempts.

The pattern continued after the restart and it was no surprise when Coman finally gave the away side the lead when he converted substitute Alphonso Davies’ cross.

Eric Choupo-Moting twice went close to doubling the advantage with PSG left with no alternative but to gamble on the fitness of Mbappe and introduce him into the one-sided affair.

The France international responded and forced an excellent save out of Yann Sommer before having a goal chalked off by VAR for offside in the build up.

The France international responded and forced an excellent save out of Yann Sommer before having a goal chalked off by VAR for offside in the build up.

A resurgent PSG pushed and threatened right at the death but could not rescue it despite the German outfit seeing Benjamin Pavard dismissed for a second yellow card.

On this evidence, Bayern will be confident of completing the job in the return leg in Germany on March 8, but assuming they will face a fully fit Mbappe at the Allianz Arena.

Brahim Diaz bundled over the line in an early goal as Ac Milan defeat Tottenham by 1-0 in Champions League first leg.
Both sides went into this game off fairly poor recent form and with numerous problems.

Stefano Pioli‘s side were happy to let Spurs have the ball in safe areas with the Serie A side looking to play on the counter-attack,

primarily through Theo Hernandez and Rafael Leao on the left-hand side.

In the second half, Tottenham continued to play well through midfield – with makeshift duo Oliver Skipp and Papa Matar Sarr acquitting themselves well – but the Premier League side lacked ideas and the necessary quality in the final third to really trouble the hosts.

As Conte’s side pushed forward in search of an equaliser, more space opened up in behind for Milan to exploit on the counter-attack.

Milan wasted two glorious chances to score within two minutes.

First, Charles De Ketelaere fired a header wide of the target and then, just a minute later, Leao found Malick Thiaw in the box but he could only divert his header wide of the post.

Milan were able to withstand late pressure from Spurs and head into the second leg with a precious lead.

Napoli started brightly as Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Mario Rui had early chances comfortably saved, while Johan Vasquez wasted a rare opening at the other end,

when, after being picked out in acres of space in the area, he was let down by a heavy touch.

the deadlock was broken when Kvaratskhelia gathered a poor Sernicola clearance at the corner flag, cut inside from the left and drilled right-footed through a sea of legs into the far bottom corner.

Curiously, he scored at the 22nd minute on his 22nd birthday.

Osimhen tapped home from close range after Giovanni Di Lorenzo’s effort had been superbly saved.

Substitute Eljif Elmas grabbed a third late on, completing a lovely move that he started himself by firing into the bottom corner after exchanging passes with Di Lorenzo.

Leeds had an early chance to open up the scoring after Patrick’s Bamford pass was poked away from goal by David de Gea straight into the path of a wide open Crysencio Summerville, who could only blast his shot over the bar.

Another chance late in the half, with Summerville lashing an on-target strike from a tight angle.

De Gea once again managed the save, with the ball hitting Harry Maguire before landing again to Summerville, who was unable to shoot the rebound before it was cleared.

In added time of the half, Bruno Fernandes pounced on a mistake by Maximilian Wober,

but after the Portugese rushed towards goal, his shot was stopped by Illan Meslier.

In the 80th minute, Rashford put his side ahead with a free header in the box, before substitute Alejandro Garnacho doubled the score five minutes later.

Mali striker Moussa Marega raced through to pull a goal back in the 26th minute keeping the Saudi side in the game at half time.

Real came out purposefully to put the game away and Karim Benzema's goal slotting home Vinicius Junior's fantastic cross from

 the left flank and then a neat finish from Valverde after a one-two with Dani Carvajal put the game beyond doubt before the hour mark.

Al-Hilal kept on fighting though and two classy finishes from Luciano Vietto made the score respectable either side of a second goal for Vinicius Junior.

Arsenal dominated the ball in the first half, but the biggest chances fell to the visitors.

Ivan Toney hit the post with time and space in the Gunners’ box, while Bryan Mbeumo had a goal rather harshly disallowed for a foul in the build-up.

Mathias Jensen was causing chaos with his long throws, and Toney was dominating his match-up with the Arsenal centre backs.

Ten minutes into the second half, it was Toney again with a big chance to score but his shot was inches wide of Aaron Ramsdale’s goal.

Arsenal took the lead when Trossard struck at the back post four minutes after coming off the bench.

Toney made amends for his earlier misses in the 74th minute with a header from close range.

Arsenal just couldn’t clear a Brentford free-kick, and the England man put it away. VAR was consulted, but after a prolonged check the goal stood.

Manchester United beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 to booked their place in the League Cup final.
The first half took a while to get going, but as Forest grew in confidence the game intensified.

Brennan Johnson ought to have given them the lead on 34 minutes, shooting against Tom Heaton when in on goal, and on 43, Emmanuel Dennis shot against Sam Surridge when he too should have scored.

In the second half, though, United’s class told, the introduction of Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial giving them fresh impetus.

Martial put the tie beyond even minor doubt shortly after coming on, then a fine goal from Fred gave United a 5-0 aggregate win and set up a final against Newcastle.

Tottenham with opening half goals by Dejan Kulusevski and Emerson Royal.

Manchester City responded immediately after the break through Julian Alvarez and Erling Haaland before Riyad Mahrez completed the turnaround with a brace.

City’s promising youngster Rico Lewis‘ deflected effort from distance then forced Hugo Lloris into a fine save.

But the game sparked into life as Spurs grabbed two goals in two minutes on the stroke of half-time.

Ederson was left red faced when he tried to play the ball out to Rodri but he was quickly closed down by Rodrigo Bentancur, leaving Kulusevski with a simple finish.

Just two minutes of stoppage-time was played, but there was still time for Spurs to double their advantage when Ederson could only parry Harry Kane’s shot and Emerson was in position to head in the rebound.

City came flying out of the blocks at the restart and within eight minutes they had restored parity.

Alvarez scrambled home following a cross from Mahrez to halve the deficit before Haaland levelled with a poacher’s header.

Ivan Perisic may have restored Spurs’ lead but his goal-bound shot was deflected onto the woodwork by the excellent Lewis.

It was fitting that Mahrez – at the centre of City’s first two goals – would complete the turnaround as he beat Lloris at his near post with an arrowed shot and scored another to make it four late on.
