Manchester United came from behind to beat Manchester City thanks to Marcus Rashford winning goal.

City stepped up a gear following the interval and Grealish broke the deadlock within 193 seconds of emerging from the bench when he headed home Kevin De Bruyne’s cross on the hour mark.

Bruno Fernandes scored despite the presence of Marcus Rashford in an offside position, City's protests that he had interfered with play ignored despite the flag going up.

Rashford was then perfectly placed to tuck in from close range eight minutes from time after a lovely turn and cross from substitute Alejandro Garnacho.

Sports / Napoli Bs Juventus 5-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 12:53am On Jan 14, 2023
Napoli powered to a ten-point lead in the Serie A title race as they dished out a 5-1 battering of Juventus, who suffered their heaviest league defeat for 30-years.
The hosts had Massimiliano Allegri’s side on the ropes throughout, and would have won by an even greater margin, were it not for some good goalkeeping and, at times, poor finishing.

Victor Osimhen scored twice with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, Amir Rrahmani and Elif Elmas also on target.

Angel di Maria responded for Juventus, who slip to third as a result.

Osimhen opened the scoring for Napoli and then provided the pass for Kvaratskhelia to double their lead, but Di Maria hit back before the break.

Rrahmani restored the hosts’ two-goal advantage 10 minutes after half-time and from there Luciano Spalletti’s side were rampant.

Georgian star Kvaratskhelia picked out Osimhen with a superb cross and the Nigeria striker headed in his 12th Serie A goal of this season.

World Cup-winning Lionel Messi were enough to give Paris all three points, in a game where they didn’t need to get out of third gear.

Sergio Ramos was denied from point-blank range by an excellent Paul Bernardoni save on 24 minutes,

and the visiting goalkeeper was called into action once more as Messi’s fierce, left-footed drive needed attending to on its way towards the far corner.

Arsenal second half energy were enough to thrash Oxford at home by 3-0 as Arteta sides move to next round of FA Cup.
Mohamed Elneny and Eddie Nketiah goals were enough for Arsenal to advance.

Saka was denied the opener with a clearance off the line early into the second half.

Fabio Vieira ran onto a long ball over the top of the Oxford defence and flicked the ball cheekily back to the England international,

who cut inside and beat Edward McGinty with his low shot, but saw his effort turned behind for a corner.

Arsenal finally broke the deadlock through Elneny who powered home a pinpoint Vieira free kick in the 63rd minute.

Seven minutes later, Arsenal had a second as Nketiah continued his impressive goalscoring form.

Vieira played an inch-perfect through ball to the forward, who took the ball around McGinty and slotted it home into an empty net.

Nketiah delicately dinked the ball over McGinty six minutes later for his second and Arsenal’s third, as Mikel Arteta’s side booked their place in the fourth round.

Villarrea denied Real Madrid LaLiga top spot as they defeat them by 2-1.

Villarrea dominated first half half but it ended goalless after the break when a mistake by

Ferland Mendy presented the ball to Gerard Moreno at the edge of the area and he squared left to Yeremi Pino to beat Thibaut Courtois.

Real were level just before the hour mark when a penalty was given for an inadvertent handball from Juan Foyth in the box and Karim Benzema converted.

Another spot kick proved to be the winner as just four minutes later, a ball from Foyth was handled by the falling David Alaba and Gerard Moreno netted the crucial goal.

Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr both had gilt-edged chances to equalise in the closing stages but

Villarreal managed to hold on for a win which lifts them level on points with fourth-place Atletico Madrid while Real are still behind leaders Barcelona on goal difference.

Manchester City defeat Chelsea by 1-0 as the result sees them move to within five points of Premier League leaders Arsenal.

Mahrez tapped home Jack Grealish‘s cross from close range just after the hour mark to grab Pep Guardiola’s side a deserved win on a night of few chances at Stamford Bridge.

It took some time for both teams to warm into this game, with Erling Haaland not even getting a touch of the ball until the 20th minute,

while Chelsea’s rhythm was disrupted by having to withdraw Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic due to injury.

City were like a different team in the second half, ominously dominating possession and creating chances for Nathan Ake,

who hit the post with a header, and Kevin De Bruyne, whose low effort was beaten away.

It did not look like it would be long until the deadlock was broken, and two substitutes

combined to give the visitors the lead just past the hour mark when Mahrez tapped home Grealish’s inviting cross.


Sports / CF Intercity Vs Barcelona 3-4 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 12:41am On Jan 05, 2023
Barcelona survived a huge scare at third-tier Intercity to secure an extra-time 4-3 Copa del Rey victory, with Ansu Fati netting a 103rd-minute winner.
An early goal can often be the precursor to a rout in these ‘David vs Goliath’ fixtures, but that wasn’t the case as the hosts fought tooth and nail to keep their elite opponents at bay.

And Intercity weren’t content with just settling for a narrow defeat and after Aaron Pinon passed up a golden first-half chance,

they remarkably pulled level through Oriol Soldevila Puig from a set-piece on 59 minutes.

Dreamland, however, for the hosts was short-lived as Ousmane Dembele regained his side the lead just seven minutes later with a fine chipped finish.

Sports / Brentford Vs Liverpool 3-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 9:50pm On Jan 02, 2023
Brentford claimed a deserved 3-1 victory against Liverpool at the Gtech Community Stadium.
The Bees were missing top scorer Ivan Toney through injury but it did little to undermine their game-plan as Thomas Frank’s side held on to take all three points.

Darwin Nunez had an early opportunity cleared off the line for the visitors before Ibrahima Konate was unfortunate to see a right-wing corner divert off his knee and into his own net on 19 minutes.

Liverpool were much-improved and dominated for long spells throughout the second period but could not muster an equaliser,

Liverpool were much-improved and dominated for long spells throughout the second period but could not muster an equaliser,

Sports / Brighton Vs Arsenal 2-4 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 9:01pm On Dec 31, 2022
Arsenal's victory at Brighton ensures they go seven points clear at top of league after draws for rivals earlier

The Gunners took barely a minute to take the lead when Gabriel Martinelli's deflected shot fell into the path of Saka who provided his customary precise first touch and cool finish.

This advantage was doubled, a little fortuitously when, after a corner was half-cleared, Martin Odegaard's shot into the ground bounced into the top corner.

The lead was three early in the second half when Martinelli shot from a tight angle was parried by Robert Sanchez into the path of Eddie Nketiah who made no mistake from close range.

Brighton pulled a goal back from a smart finish from Kaoru Mitoma but a wonderful forty-yard through-ball from Odegaard put through Martinelli to extend the lead.

The hosts kept battling though and pulled a goal back from Evan Ferguson's first goal for the club and had another from Mitoma disallowed.

Sports / Barcelona Vs Espanyol 1-1 Highlights Download Video) by Oladisquare: 4:22pm On Dec 31, 2022
Barcelona returned to the top of La Liga with a 1-1 draw against Espanyol but will consider two points dropped in a match which saw two red cards.

The Azulgrana dominated the early stages and should have had more reward than their solitary goal from Marcos Alonso in the seventh minute.

In the second half the game appeared to drifting when Espanyol won a penalty from nowhere 17 minutes from time as Alonso inadvertently stood on the heel of Joselu.

The veteran striker got up to slot home the penalty before a crazy end to the game where seven yellow cards were handed out and Jordi Alba and Vinicius Souza were sent off.

Referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz appeared to have sent off two Espanyol players only for VAR to intervene after some delay to reduce it to just one.

Espanyol were grateful to goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez for a string of fine saves late on to keep the scores level.

Barcelona are ahead of Real Madrid on goal difference, while Espanyol raise a position to 16th.

Marcus Rashford came off the bench to score an excellent goal that earned Manchester United A victory Against Wolves

Manchester United move into the top four for the first time since mid-March.

United best chances fell to Alejandro Garnacho whose shot was well saved by Jose Sa and the keeper also kept out Antony's close-range header on the stroke of half time.

Ten Hag brought on Rashford at the break, with Antony Martial and Antony lucky not to be replaced, while the home side brought on Adama Traore and both made an impact.

Ruben Neves went close with a trademark curling freekick which David De Gea saved.

The game looked to be heading for a draw until Rashford punished some slack defending from Nathan Collins and Jonny to bulldoze his way into the box and score.

Rashford thought he netted his second in the closing stages but it was disallowed by VAR for a handball in the buildup.

Wolves came close in injury time through Raul Jimenez, but couldn't find an equaliser.

Sports / Valladolid Vs Real Madrid 0-2 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 12:29am On Dec 31, 2022
Real Madrid moved top of La Liga with an unconvincing 2-0 win against 10-man Real Valladolid.
Inside the first 15 minutes Madrid were denied a penalty despite Javi Sanchez’s apparent handball, with Carlo Ancelotti left furious at the decision.

Minutes later Karim Benzema blazed over the bar from point-blank range, then Antonio Rudiger headed wide.

Valladolid had been stretched almost to breaking but from midway through the first half they were the dominant side.
Thibaut Courtois denied Alvaro Aguado’s curling effort shortly before the break,

while the hosts had a penalty appeal of their own turned down before another Aguado chance.

On the hour mark, Valladolid lost both Roque Mesa and Julian Escudero to injury, while Madrid introduced Lucas Vazquez and Rodrygo.

Another trio of brilliant Courtois saves were required to keep the scores level with 20 minutes to play.

With 10 minutes to play, Rudiger headed onto the arm of Sanchez and this time the VAR intervened to award the champions a late penalty. In the furious aftermath, Sergio Leon was sent off.

Benzema stepped up to convert the spot kick after a long wait.

Shortly afterwards Benzema wrapped up the victory with his second goal, courtesy of a Luka Modric cameo, to give Madrid possession of top spot in La Liga.

Wout Faes two own goal earned Liverpool come from behind to beat Leicester City 2-1 at Anfield on Friday night.

Two mistakes of the highest order from Faes within seven minutes of each other at the end of a frantic first half cost the Foxes their valuable lead.

Both sides threatened during the second half but lacked quality in front of goal, as Liverpool managed to see out the game and wrap up all three points.

Liverpool remain in sixth place, two points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur in fourth spot, whereas Leicester, in 13th, are in danger of dropping closer to the relegation zone over the weekend.

Kylian Mbappe scored a 96th-minute penalty as Paris Saint-Germain snatched a 2-1 win over struggling Strasbourg after Neymar was sent off for diving.
The game struggled to get going in the first half, Strasbourg pressed Paris Saint-Germain high up the pitch, committing lots of fouls to try and stop the home side from getting into their stride.

Marquinhos gave the home side the lead after 14 minutes, heading home from a Neymar free-kick.

Neymar was growing increasingly frustrated and in a period of just two minutes he was sent off.

He was shown a yellow card on 61 minutes for throwing a flailing arm at Thomasson and just a minute later the Brazilian received a second yellow for diving in the box.

Strasbourg grew in confidence from this point, going forward against PSG’s 10 men.

PSG began to push forward in search of a winner late on and snatched victory thanks to Mbappe’s penalty.

Manchester City back to second on the table as Erling Haaland scored his 20th Premier League goal of the season a 3-1 victory over Leeds United.

Rodri’s goal on the stroke of half-time gave City the breakthrough and Haaland registered on the scoresheet twice in the second half.

Pascal Struijk grabbed a consolation for Leeds.

The early signs were ominous for Leeds as Haaland was slipped in with less than a minute on the clock but was repelled by Illan Meslier, who would go on to have a busy night.

Manchester City finally got their opener in first half added-time when Meslier parried Riyad Mahrez’s shot into the path of Rodri who was left with a simple tap-in.

Leeds were the creators of their own undoing at the start of the second half when Liam Cooper’s loose pass was intercepted by Grealish who

 unselfishly rolled it to Haaland who slotted City’s second into an empty net.

Grealish registered his second assist of the night when he found Haaland at the near post with a neat cut-back and the former Dortmund striker tucked a first-time effort past Meslier.

Haaland spurned an excellent chance for a hat-trick, and, at the opposite end, Joe Gelhardt almost set up a grandstand finish with a shot that went just wide.

Manchester United beat Nottingham Forest 3-0 as they returned to Premier League action with a win.
Marcus Rashford opened the scoring after a well-worked set piece, before Anthony Martial doubled their lead in the first half.

Manchester United started the game with a great intensity, looking to get at Forest down the flanks from the off.

Forest thought they had one back five minutes from half-time as Ryan Yates headed home, but a VAR check confirmed the ball took the slightest of touches off an offside Wily Boly.

Fred added a third late on but in truth, it could’ve been more for United who missed a whole host of chances and they now lie just one point behind Tottenham with a game in hand.

Sports / Chelsea Vs Bournemouth 2-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 8:54pm On Dec 27, 2022
Chelsea end winless run as they defear Bournemouth by 2-0 goal by Havertz and Mount.

Graham Potter’s side scored both goals before the break as they put in a dominant display, avoiding a fourth-straight Premier League defeat in the process.

Chelsea took a lead at 16 minutes as Raheem Sterling burst down the right before sliding an inch-perfect cross to Kai Havertz, who could not miss when sliding home from close range.

From then on the hosts did not look back, with Mason Mount doubling their lead shortly afterwards as he brilliantly curled into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

It could have been 3-0 before the break, only for Mark Travers to save at his near post first from Reece James and then Sterling,

while the keeper also denied Mount after half-time, diving low to his right to palm away a low shot after the England midfielder's marauding 40-yard dart forward.

Chelsea seemed to lose some momentum when James limped off injured in the second half, while Bournemouth finally started to create

 some chances late on, including Ryan Christie seeing a fierce effort saved by Kepa at his near post.

West Ham were resilient in defence and it took a stroke of luck to get back on level terms as Martin Odegaard's poor attempted shot fell into

Liverpool made a winning return to Premier League action as they restarted their bid to force their way into the top four with an entertaining victory over Aston Villa.
Liverpool took the lead on five minutes when Salah tucked home his 16th goal of the season after brilliant play from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson.

Darwin Nunez‘s wastefulness prevented the visitors from extending their lead but they were able to add a second before half-time when Van Dijk’s shot deflected in off Ezri Konsa following a corner.

Aston Villa provided a strong response after the restart and Watkins reduced the arrears with a fine header just shy of the hour.

Darwin Nunez missed a series of gilt-edged openings in the first period for the away team and then dragged another big chance wide 12 minutes from the end.

However, the Uruguayan’s persistence paid off soon after when his cross-shot was parried into the path of substitute Stefan Bajcetic, who side-stepped Robin Olsen before slotting home.

The result means sixth-placed Liverpool have won three top-flight matches on the spin for the first time this season and are now five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with a game in hand. Villa stay 12th.

Tottenham came from behind to earn a point at Brentford and almost won it when heading against the bar in the closing stages.
Brentford took a deserved lead when Mathias Jensen’s deflected shot could only be pushed by Fraser Forster into the path of Vitaly Janelt who slotted home gleefully.

Their lead was doubled when Christian Norgaard flicked Bryan Mbeumo‘s corner into the path of Ivan Toney who nudged home from three yards out.

There looked no way back for Tottenham until 20 minutes into the second half when Clement Lenglet put in a deep cross from the left flank which Kane rose to head superbly home.

Six minutes later the game was level when Dejan Kulusevski pulled back for Pierre Hojbjerg who smashed home.

Five minutes from time, Kane did brilliantly to beat Bees keeper David Raya to a cross and was unlucky to see his flicked header come back off the crossbar.

Spurs pushed again for a winner but both sides had to settle for a draw in a pulsating match.

Sports / EFL CUP: Manchester United 2-0 Burnley Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:10pm On Dec 21, 2022
Christian Eriksen and Marcus Rashford strike were enough for Manchester United to progress to quater in a 2-0 win over Burnley

 Erik ten Hag named five players who featured at the World Cup in the starting XI including Christian Eriksen who opened the scoring after 27 minutes.

Bruno Fernandes picked out Aaron Wan-Bissaka and the United full-back – making a

 rare start – was at full stretch to hook it back across the face of goal and leave Eriksen with a tap-in. It was Wan-Bissaka’s first assist since May 2021.

United survived a couple of nervy moments from stand-in goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, and at the opposite end, Bailey Peacock-Farrell was

 alert to keep out efforts from Alejandro Garnarcho and Anthony Martial.

There was nothing Peacock-Farrell could do about Rashford’s goal, which came 12 minutes after the restart.

Picking the ball up in his own half, he embarked on a menacing run before hammering a shot emphatically into the bottom corner.

Ashley Barnes spurned a huge chance for Burnley to halve the deficit, as visiting manager Vincent Kompany’s return to Old Trafford ended in defeat.

Sports / Argentina Vs France 3-3 [PEN 4-2]highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 8:31pm On Dec 18, 2022
Argentina have won the World Cup for a third time, requiring a penalty shootout to do so when an epic contest with France finished 3-3 after extra-time.

La Albiceleste led 2-0 and then 3-2 in extra time, but were pegged back before Gonzalo Montiel secured a 4-2 success in the shoot-out after Kingsley Coman and Aurelien Tchouameni failed from the spot for Les Bleus.

Messi, 35, had suggested this showdown for the trophy would be his World Cup swansong,

and he fittingly rose to the occasion when he converted a clinical penalty on 23 minutes.

It saw him become the first man ever to score in every round of a single World Cup.

France had been aiming to become the first team in 60 years to retain the trophy,

but they were second best for long spells and it was no surprise when Argentina claimed a 2-0 advantage heading into the interval.

Angel Di Maria was recalled to the side for this final and repaid manager Lionel Scaloni’s decision with a vibrant display, earning the penalty for the opener before finishing off a flowing team move on 36 minutes.

The match had been billed as a potential passing of the torch between Messi and his Paris-Saint Germain team-mate Kylian Mbappe,

but the Frenchman was peripheral for much of the contest until a blur of brilliance turned the game on its head inside 90 seconds.

Mbappe converted an 80th-minute penalty before exchanging a lovely one-two and volleying home a dramatic equaliser just seconds later.

Messi then turned the game again in extra time when he tucked in a rebound before Mbappe

kept his nerve from the spot three minutes from the end to set up a penalty shoot-out by becoming only the second man in history to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final.

Argentina ultimately held their nerve from the spot to win their third World title and become the second side to triumph after losing their opening game.

Argentina defeat croatia by 3-0 to reached the World Cup final for the first time since 2014 credits to Messi goals and an assist for Alvarez..

Messi, looking to win the World Cup for the first time in his fifth and likely final appearance at the tournament, fired home a first-half penalty to become Argentina’s all-time top scorer in the competition with 11 goals.

Alvarez ran half the length of the pitch to double the Albiceleste’s lead, before Messi went on a dazzling dribble after the break to set up Alvarez for a tap-in.

Messi equalled Diego Maradona’s record of eight World Cup assists for Argentina, while this was his 25th World Cup appearance – matching the record of Germany legend Lothar Matthaus.

The 35-year-old will now captain his country against France or Morocco in Sunday’s final as

Argentina look to become world champions for the first time since the Maradona-inspired campaign of 1986, and the third time overall.

Sports / Morocco Vs Portugal 1-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 6:32pm On Dec 10, 2022
Youssef En-Nesyri’s first-half header against Portugal was enough as Morocco became the first-ever African side to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup. 

The Sevilla forward sent the large contingent of Morocco fans crazy with a 42nd-minute headed effort that was enough to send Portugal home.

Walid Regragui’s history-makers will meet the winner of France and England in the semi-final on Wednesday.

The first chance fell Portugal’s way with Joao Felix’s deflected effort drifting agonisingly wide with goalkeeper Bono well beaten.

Having gone close twice earlier in the half, En-Nesyri finally broke the deadlock three minutes before half-time.

It was a magical moment for Morocco, but one to forget for Portugal’s goalkeeper Diogo Costa

who was caught in no-man’s land as he got nowhere close to Yahih Attiyat Allah’s cross and En-Nesyri took full advantage, heading home quite majestically to send the African fans wild.

Bruno Fernandes almost levelled immediately with an ingenious effort, moments before he had a strong appeal for a penalty waved away by the referee.

Sports / Croatia Vs Brazil 1-1 [PEN 4-2] Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 7:31pm On Dec 09, 2022
Croatia defeat Brazil in penalty shootout to reach the World Cup semi-finals.

At the Education City stadium, tournament favourites Brazil were expected to sweep aside a Croatian team who had failed to score in half their games in Qatar to that point.

But in the first-half it was the underdogs who had the upper-hand, with the influential midfield of Luka Modric, Marcelo Brozovic and Mateo Kovacic controlling the play and stopping Brazil from creating anything.

That all changed after the break, with the South Americans much improved, though they were unable to break the deadlock thanks in large to Croatia keeper Dominik Livakovic.

Neymar was twice denied the chance to take the lead while Livakovic also made several great saves from Lucas Paqueta and Vinicius Jr.

Into extra-time, Brazil continued to press by Croatia continued to hold firm, with clear cut

 chances few and far between, until Brozovic wasted a huge opportunity, blazing over from the edge of the box after some superb play from Bruno Petkovic.

And then, just as the first-half of extra-time was ending, Neymar played an incredible one-two with Paqueta before dancing round Livakovic and firing home from close range.

The 30-year-old’s goal means he has now gone level with the legendary Pele as Brazil’s all-time top scorer.

Croatia responded in the dying minutes, with Petkovic’s deflected strike, his side’s only shot on target, finishing off a slick counter-attack.

That took things to a penalty shootout where young Rodrygo had Brazil’s first penalty saves while Croatia dispatched each of their spot-kicks past Liverpool No.1 Alisson.
