Sports / Barcelona Vs Real Madrid 2-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:30pm On Mar 19, 2023
Barcelona took another huge step towards the Liga title as Franck Kessie scored a late winner to sink Real Madrid 2-1 in El Clasico.
Madrid, who led early on, had a late goal ruled out for offside by VAR and were stunned when Kessie netted the winner for Barca.

The hosts had a couple of early chances to take the lead, as Raphinha’s bullet header was well saved by Thibaut Courtois, before Sergio Busquets fired over the bar.

They were then hit by a suckerpunch at the other end though, when Vinicius Jr broke down the left before seeing his cross hit defender Ronald Araujo, who diverted it into his own goal.

That stunned the home crowd, who had only seen their side concede once in 12 previous league outings at Camp Nou this season.

However, Xavi’s side were quick to respond, with Andreas Christensen and Raphinha thwarted by Courtois, before Sergi Roberto fired home the equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

The second half was played at a much slower pace, with chances few and far between as both sides struggled with their final ball.

Robert Lewandowski arguably had the best chance, acrobatically shooting over from close range, before Raphinha had another shot saved.

Carlo Ancelotti threw on a number of attacking substitutions as he looked to find a winner, which he thought he had when Marco Asensio finished from near the penalty spot with less than 10 minutes left.

However, the goal was ruled out for offside after a long VAR check.

And to rub salt into the wounds, Kessie lit up Camp Nou with a late, late winner to extend the lead to 12 points.

Sports / Manchester United Vs Fulham 3-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 9:37pm On Mar 19, 2023
Two goals in three minutes, following two Fulham red cards turned the FA Cup quarter-final on its head, sending Manchester United through to the semi-finals.

United were second best for the first 71 minutes and were behind from Aleksandar Mitrovic’s close-range strike five minutes after the break, before the game changed.

Antony sent Jadon Sancho through on goal and he rounded Bernd Leno before having his shot blocked by Willian’s arm which,

after VAR and a dismissal for manager Marco Silva, saw a penalty given and a red card for the Brazilian, before Mitrovic also was sent off for barging into referee Chris Kavanagh.

Bruno Fernandes scored the spot kick and then from the next attack Luke Shaw’s low cross was flicked in by Marcel Sabitzer.

Fulham chased the game but could not find a second, and Bruno capped the win with a late third.

Sports / Torino Vs Napoli 0-4 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 5:51pm On Mar 19, 2023
Napoli continue with a dominant performance away to Torino, including a brace of Victor Osimhen headers, Kvicha Kvaratskhelia penalty and Tanguy Ndombele.
In the intervening 20 minutes, the home side were dominant but failed to convert their many good attacking chances into a goal.

Torino also consistently invited pressure with poor giveaways and sloppy passing out from the back.

Shortly after half-time Osimhen rose again to head in Napoli’s third, running onto a perfect cross from Mathias Olivera.

Second-half substitute Tanguy Ndombele made it 4-0 with a smart finish after Osimhen won back possession and found Kvaratskhelia in the box with 20 minutes to play.

Victory takes Napoli 21 points clear of Inter who face Juventus in the Derby d’Italia on Sunday night, while Torino remain ninth.

Sports / Arsenal Vs Crystal Palace 4-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 5:24pm On Mar 19, 2023
Arsenal’s make it to eight point clear on top as Bukayo Saka strike twice in 4-1 Premier League win over Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium.
Early on, Crystal Palace managed to give Arsenal some problems, with Wilfried Zaha running with the ball on the left flank.

He cut inside to shoot with his right, but his shot clattered the post before bouncing back off of Aaron Ramsdale’s legs and going out for a corner kick.

In the 28th minute, the opener came after Saka clipped a cross into the box for Gabriel Martinelli, who managed to evade Joel Ward and drill a left-footed shot into the bottom-right corner.

Arsenal were well on top after the first goal, and scored their second right on the brink of half-time.

After Granit Xhaka sent a cross across the face of goal, Saka collected the loose ball, and played a one-two with Ben White before curling a shot right into the back of the net.

Ten minutes after the restart, Leandro Trossard played a through ball to put Granit Xhaka in behind the Palace defence and the Swiss managed to find the back of the net under pressure.

Crystal Palace pulled one back in the 63rd minute from a corner.

Jeffrey Schlupp reacted the quickest, chesting the ball down before striking it home from about six yards out.

Saka scored his second in the 74th minute with a first-time shot after Palace failed to clear their lines.

Sports / Al Nasr Vs Ahba 2-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 9:34pm On Mar 18, 2023
Cristiano Ronaldo and Al Nassr mounted their latest comeback to keep their title hopes alive as they came from 1-0 down to beat Abha 2-1.

The victory moves them to within a single point of league leaders Al Ittihad with nine matches left to go in the season.

Al Ittihad convincingly won their match earlier in the day by thumping Al Fateh 5-1 on a hat-trick by top scorer Abderrazak Hamdallah.

Al Nassr were shocked by a first-half Abha goal scored by Abdulfattah Adam, who happens to be an Al Nassr product on loan to Abha.

The 28-year-old did well to rip a shot into the top corner, refusing to celebrate out of respect for Al Nassr and the club’s fans.

Al Nassr struggled to mount a response with chaotic attacking sequences, and little flow in their movements.

Sports / Chelsea Vs Everton 2-2 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 9:13pm On Mar 18, 2023
Ellis Simms came off the bench to hit a last-gasp equaliser and earn struggling Everton a hard-fought 2-2 draw at Chelsea.
Graham Potter’s hosts had bossed the first half but struggled to find a way through with Mateo Kovacic fizzing their best effort inches wide.

Chelsea continued on the front foot after the break and finally took the lead when Joao Felix fired in off the post to net his first goal at Stamford Bridge on 52 minutes.

Everton had rarely threatened but became more adventurous after conceding and once again demonstrated their set-piece prowess when Abdoulaye Doucoure flicked home James Tarkowski’s header from a right-wing corner on 69 minutes.

Chelsea hit straight back, however, and Kai Havertz made it three goals in three games when he coolly fired in from the penalty spot 14 minutes from time.

The visitors looked like suffering another defeat on their travels but substitute Simms earned a share of the spoils in the last minute when he surged in from the left and slotted a low shot beyond Kepa.

The result leaves Chelsea sitting just inside the top half in 10th spot, 11 points off fourth-placed Tottenham with a game in hand.

Everton’s winless away run stretches to 12 league matches but a morale-boosting draw sees them climb to 15th, two points above the drop zone.

Sports / Manchester City Vs Burnley 6-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 9:03pm On Mar 18, 2023
Erling Haaland scored his second hat-trick in five days as Manchester City cruised into the FA Cup semi-finals by hammering Championship leaders Burnley at Etihad Stadium.
Haaland followed his five-goal haul against RB Leipzig in the Champions League by claiming another three to take his tally for the season to 42.

The Norwegian is now just two short of the record jointly held by Ruud van Nistelrooy and Mohamed Salah for the most goals for an English top-flight club in all competitions in the Premier League era.

Julian Alvarez added two goals and substitute Cole Palmer also scored on a sobering night for former City skipper Vincent Kompany, whose Burnley side have surged 13 points clear at the top of the Championship.

Burnley did well in the first half but could not match Haaland’s staggering efficiency in front of goal.

Sports / Arsenal Vs Sporting 1-1 [PEN 3-5] Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 12:30am On Mar 17, 2023
Arsenal were sent crashing out of the Europa League as Sporting Lisbon won 5-3 on penalties at the Emirates.
Mikel Areta’s Gunners looked in control when Granit Xhaka gave them a lead on the night and on aggregate.

But the red half of North London was silenced when Pedro Goncalvez netted a stunner from 46 yards to beat the despairing dive of Aaron Ramsdale.

Arsenal were the better side in extra-time, but were unable to find a winner as the game went to penalties.

After the first seven penalties were scored, Sporting goalkeeper Antonio Adan,

who had been excellent over the two legs, kept out Gabriel Martinelli’s effort to help the Portuguese progress.

Sports / Real Betis Vs Manchester United 0-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 9:18pm On Mar 16, 2023
Manchester United easing through 5-1 on aggregate against Real Betis after a stunning Marcus Rashford strike proved the difference in the second leg.
Erik ten Hag set out his intentions from the get-go, naming a strong starting line-up despite bringing a 4-1 first-leg victory to the Benito Villamarin Stadium.

But The Red Devils were made to work for their place in the last eight, particularly in the first half.

Real Betis started by far the better side and nearly opened the scoring in the ninth minute when Juanmi was played through on David De Gea.

The Spanish forward dragged his effort wide of the mark, but the hosts kept coming and went even closer two minutes later when Joaquin’s long-range effort clipped the outside of the post.

It was end-to-end stuff in the opening period, with De Gea called into action again in the 32nd minute to deny Juanmi and keep the game level.

United did weather the storm slightly and could have gone in at the break ahead after Facundo Pellistri hit the post in added time,

with the rebound somehow evading Wout Weghorst.

The second period began the same way as the first, with the hosts on the front foot,

but Rashford extinguished any lingering hopes the Spanish side had with a magnificent strike from outside the box in the 56th minute to settle the tie once and for all.

Sports / Napoli Vs Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 12:11am On Mar 16, 2023
Victor Osimhen scored his 22nd and 23rd goals of the season as Napoli reached the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time with a 3-0 second-leg win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
With Napoli leading the tie 2-0 on aggregate after the first leg, Osimhen stretched their advantage to three goals overall with a stunning header on the stroke of half-time.

He then doubled Napoli’s lead on the other side of half-time when he tapped home Giovanni Di Lorenzo’s cross from close range after a well-worked move.

Piotr Zielinski won and scored a penalty just after the hour to put the game to bed.

Sports / Real Madrid Vs Liverpool 1-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:22pm On Mar 15, 2023
Real Madrid cruised into the Champions League quarter finals after the holders’ five-star display at Anfield meant a low-key 1-0 win at the Bernabeu was enough to emphatically knock Liverpool out of the competition.
The Merseysiders have produced heroic comebacks in the past, but it was never on the cards here as Karim Benzema netted

the only goal of the game 12 minutes from time to secure a 6-2 victory on aggregate for Carlo Ancelotti’s Spanish champions.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp had spoken about a one per cent chance coming into the second leg in Spain and it looked like he was going for it by naming four forwards in his starting line-up.

However, it was Real who had the better of the opening half with Alisson producing a miraculous point-blank save to deny Vinicius Jr before the goalkeeper’s fingertips flicked Eduardo Camavinga’s curling shot on to the crossbar.

Real had the more clear-cut chances in a tepid second period with Federico Valverde and Benzema wasting clear sights of goal before the latter finally broke the deadlock with a scruffy tap-in.

Liverpool offered little as an attacking threat but were much more secure than at Anfield and will rue falling apart after storming into a 2-0 lead early in that first leg.

Real can now look ahead to Friday’s draw for both the quarter finals and semi finals of the competition.

Los Blancos will then switch focus to Sunday’s El Clasico at Barcelona while Liverpool do not play until April 1 when they visit Manchester City in the Premier League.

Sports / Manchester City Vs RB Leipzig 7-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:31pm On Mar 14, 2023
Erlin Haaland netted a stunning FIVE goals in Manchester City’s 7-0 trouncing of RB Leipzig.
The Norwegian striker bagged an early brace inside a minute, before getting his hat-trick just before half-time to put City firmly

in control of the last 16 tie – which was his fifth treble of the season so far and his second in the Champions League.

His second effort was a landmark strike, with Haaland now having scoring 31 goals in the Champions League.

After Ilkay Gundogan finished a terrific move, he scored twice more before being subbed to spare Leipzig further punishment.

Then in added time Kevin De Bruyne added one more. 7-0 on the night, 8-1 on aggregate, was fair reflection of the chasm between the teams; between City and most teams, when they play like this.

Sports / Fulham Vs Arsenal 0-3 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 5:51pm On Mar 12, 2023
Leandro Trossard made history with a hat-trick of first-half assists as Arsenal moved five points clear at the Premier League summit with a convincing 3-0 victory at Fulham.
The Gunners completely overwhelmed their opponents with a particularly dominant showing,

as Mikel Arteta’s men further underlined their intent to end a 19-year wait since their last top-flight title.

A two-goal blast in a five-minute period midway through the opening period saw Brazilians Gabriel and Gabriel Martinelli nod home simple headers.

It took the latter’s tally to a personal best of 12 league goals so far this term and five in his last five league outings.

Martin Odegaard then put the result beyond doubt on the stroke of half-time as he took down Trossard’s cross and rifled past Bernd Leno.

The contribution from the Belgian forward saw him become the first player in Premier League history to clock up a trio of assists in the first half of an away game.

Fulham improved following the interval and went close when Tosin Adarabioyo headed against the crossbar.

However, Arsenal continued to comfortably contain their hosts and control the game and were given a further boost 13 minutes from

time when Gabriel Jesus came off the bench to make his first appearance since undergoing knee surgery in December.

However, Arsenal continued to comfortably contain their hosts and control the game and were given a further boost 13 minutes from time when Gabriel Jesus came off the bench to make his first appearance since undergoing knee surgery in December.

Sports / Leicester Vs Chelsea 1-3 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 6:31pm On Mar 11, 2023
Chelsea made it to three win in a row as they beat Leicester City 3-1 to record their first Premier League away win since October.
Graham Potter‘s side took the lead after just 11 minutes thanks to a terrific volley from former fox Ben Chilwell.

Chelsea thought they had doubled their advantage in the 35th minute when Joao Felix finished off a brilliant team move, but it was ruled out for offside following a VAR check.

Just four minutes later, Leicester City had an equaliser. Felix had his pocket picked by Ricardo Pereira, who laid it off for Patson Daka to thunder home from distance to make it 1-1.

It didn’t take long for The Blues to go back ahead, though. Enzo Fernandez dinked a wonderful ball over the top for Kai Havertz, who was able to flick his effort over Danny Ward and into the back of the net.

Chelsea wrapped up all three points 10 minutes from time when Mateo Kovacic improvised brilliantly to volley home from close range.

Leicester were reduced to 10 men late in the game when Wout Faes received his second yellow card for a late tackle.

Sports / Real Madrid Vs Espanyol 3-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 4:25pm On Mar 11, 2023
Real Madrid fight back to claim a 3-1 win over Espanyol at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday afternoon as Vinicius Junior and Eder Militao were both on target for the Spanish champions.
Espanyol had not scored an away goal versus Real in more than 630 minutes, but needed fewer than eight to take the lead today.

Joselu was the beneficiary of Eduardo Camavinga getting his angles wrong and slammed a Ruben Sanchez cross into the top corner.

Vinicius got Madrid back on level terms almost single-handedly, beating three defenders for pace before firing in a low shot.

Eder Militao put them ahead shortly before the interval when he nodded in Aurelien Tchouameni‘s brilliant cross.

Madrid were dominant after their slow start and came agonisingly close to growing their lead via Rodrygo, who rattled the crossbar from a free kick.

Marco Asensio eventually added a third in stoppage time, burying a one-on-one with Espanyol stretched.

Sports / Bournemouth Vs Liverpool 1-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 4:07pm On Mar 11, 2023
Bourmoueth climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone with a 1-0 win over Liverpool.
Philip Billing strikes the only goal of the game before Mohamed Salah fired a woeful penalty miles wide for the Reds.

Liverpool had started well, but failed to convert a series of early chances through Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson before the home team stole in front on 28 minutes.

The excellent Dango Ouattara had earlier fired into the side netting after rounding Alisson but he made amends with an

explosive run and cross down the right that allowed Billing to arrive on cue and tuck in his sixth league goal of the campaign.

Liverpool struggled to carve out chances in a tight second period but had a golden opportunity to level 20 minutes from time.

VAR intervened when Adam Smith blocked Diogo Jota’s goal-bound header with his arm and a penalty was eventually awarded.

However, Salah fluffed his lines with a shocking spot kick that flew well wide of goal and Bournemouth held on to secure a famous triumph.

The result sees Gary O’Neil’s men climb off the foot of the table and rise up to 16th spot ahead of the rest of the weekend’s fixtures.

Liverpool stay fifth, three points off fourth but could lose further ground on that final Champions League berth if results don’t go their way.

William Saliba was on target as Arsenal were held to a 2-2 draw at Sporting CP in the first leg of their Europa League round-of-16 tie.
The French defender nodded in Fabio Vieira’s corner on 22 minutes to open the scoring and net his third goal for the Gunners.

Mikel Arteta had made six changes to the side that beat Bournemouth in dramatic fashion at the weekend and it showed as the away side lacked tempo, cohesion and rhythm for large spells of the encounter.

The second half was excellent, with both teams really going for it and the match not feeling like the first leg of a tie as the action went end-to-end.

Sporting got their noses in front as Paulinho pounced on a rebound from a Turner save to delight the home fans, but Arsenal levelled again just past the hour, with Hidemasa Morita very unlucky to turn a Granit Xhaka pass into his own goal.

Arsenal will clearly be favourites to progress with the scores level as they prepare for their home leg, but Sporting proved how dangerous they can be and will be a threat again at the Emirates.

It was poor from goalkeeper Matt Turner, on a rare start for the American as he failed to come for the cross, while debutant Jakub Kiwior did not exactly cover himself in glory as he ducked away from the cross.

Sports / Manchester United Vs Real Betis 4-1 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 7:01am On Mar 10, 2023
Manchester United took a big step towards the last eight of the Europa League, 4-1 win over Real Betis before next week’s second leg in Spain.
After the weekend horror of a 7-0 defeat at Anfield, they’ll be well pleased with their midweek endeavours.

Eager to put their Anfield capitulation behind them, United started well, and quickly went in front,

Marcus Rashford leathering a tremendous rising finish high into the net after skipping around a grounded defender.

But they were unable to force a second and Betis gradually eased themselves into the game, scoring a lovely equaliser through Ayoze Perez, on loan from Leicester.

After the break, though, United stomped onto the gas, Antony scoring his goal with an glorious finish on 52 minutes, then on 58,

Bruno Fernandes met Luke Shaw’s corner with a thunderous header, taking United to the cusp of the quarter-finals.

Wout Weghorst’s finish from close range on 83 minutes for United’s fourth, may well have put the tie beyond Betis.

Sports / Chelsea Vs Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:43pm On Mar 07, 2023
Chelsea overturned a first-leg deficit to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-0 and progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The Blues have struggled for goals in 2023 but demonstrated a more ruthless streak in Europe’s premier competition to win 2-1 on aggregate and ease some of the pressure on boss Graham Potter.

Dortmund had controlled long spells of the first period with Marco Reus going close to breaking the deadlock with a delightful 25 yard free-kick that Kepa did well to touch past his right-hand post.

Chelsea relied upon punchy counter-attacks and carved out a series of big opportunities.

Havertz hit the post and then had a goal chalked off for offside in the build-up while Joao Felix and Kalidou Koulibaly also wasted gilt-edged chances.

Sterling eventually opened the scoring two minutes prior to the break when he rifled high into the net at the second time of asking.

The second-half burst into life in dramatic fashion on 50 minutes when VAR intervened to help award a penalty for hand ball against Marius Wolf.

Havertz saw his initial spot kick come crashing back off the foot of the post but made no mistake with a second attempt after VAR ordered a re-take for encroachment.

Dortmund huffed and puffed but could not find away back into the tie with Jude Bellingham somehow side-footing a close-range effort wide.

Sports / Liverpool Vs Manchester United 7-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 7:57pm On Mar 05, 2023
Liverpool thrash Manchester United at Anfield, beating the Red Devils 7-0 thanks to brilliant performances from their front three.
Gakpo opened the scoring at the end of a frenetic first half, curling the ball home after Andy Robertson produced a defence-splitting pass.

It had been fairly even up to that point, but Liverpool took the game in a crazy five minutes after the break.

First Nunez headed in from close range before Gakpo linked up with Salah and beat David de Gea with a deft chip.

Almost immediately from kick off in the second half, Liverpool made it 2-0.

The second would come from Nunez and some rather woeful defending from Man Utd, as the forward stole in at the back post to nod home an Elliott cross.

Liverpool were then able to turn the knife on their opponents with a third moments later.

Again it was the irrepressible Gakpo who’d find the net after Salah turned Martinez inside out and played a delightful slide

through ball into the Dutch international’s path. Gakpo made no mistake with his finish, fire past David de Gea with aplomb.

Nunez added the fifth with his head on a remarkable day for Liverpool, before Salah scored a scruffy sixth to move clear of Fowler in the record books. Roberto Firmino completed the destruction late on.

Sports / Barcelona Vs Valencia 1-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 6:35pm On Mar 05, 2023
Barcelona held on with 10 men for the last half hour as Raphinha’s goal gave them a 1-0 victory over second-bottom Valencia.
The former Leeds man made a diagonal run from the right flank to meet Sergio Busquets’ perfect clipped ball over the defence with a header to put the hosts ahead on the 15-minute mark.

Sloppy defending from Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Andreas Christensen gave opportunities to equalise for Samuel Lino and Ilaix Moriba before the break but both spurned the chances.

Eight minutes into the second half the game should have been put beyond doubt but, after Jules Kounde‘s effort was blocked by

Hugo Guillamon‘s arm, Ferran Torres‘ spot kick clipped the outside of Giorgi Mamardashvili’s right-hand post.

Despite having a lot of pressure in the closing stages, Valencia did not come as close to equalising with the man advantage,

with the closest the game coming to a second goal arriving when Ansu Fati struck the inside of the post for Barcelona.

Sports / Chelsea Vs Leeds United 1-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 7:06pm On Mar 04, 2023
Chelsea beat Leeds United 1-0 thanks to a Wesley Fofana header that put an end to their winless run.
Joao Felix had Chelsea’s biggest chance of the first half after 22 minutes, the ball was cut back to the Portugal international and he smacked a first-time effort from outside the box which crashed off the crossbar.

It took Chelsea just eight minutes of the second half to find the back of the net, Ben Chilwell put in a high corner and Wesley Fofana rose highest to thunder his header past Illan Meslier.

Fofana had a similar chance in the first half which went over the bar but he made no mistake with this attempt.

Leeds pushed forward in search of an equaliser, committing bodies forward and getting into good areas.

Javi Gracia‘s side though struggled to find the right final ball, often deliberating in the final third and generally lacking conviction.

Chelsea held on to record their first Premier League win since January and it’s a result which slightly relieves the pressure on manager Graham Potter.

Sports / Arsenal Vs Bournemouth 3-2 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 6:54pm On Mar 04, 2023
Arsenal fought back from 2-0 down to claim a thrilling 3-2 win against Bournemouth in a Premier League classic.
Philip Billing stunned the Gunners by ghosting into the box to score in the opening minute from close range from Dango Ouattara’s low cross, the second-fastest goal in Premier League history.

Arsenal had 87 per cent possession in the first half and nine corners, but the out-of-form Cherries defended superbly and were agonisingly close to increasing their lead when Aaron Ramsdale raced off his line to keep out Ouattara’s shot.

The second half was a similar story with the home side dominating possession and carving out a series of chances,

but the Emirates was stunned again when from a corner, Marcos Senesi headed in at the near post to double their lead.

The Gunners reduced their deficit after goalkeeper Neto opted to punch the ball clear, allowing Emile Smith-Rowe to head the ball back into the area and Thomas Partey was there to score.

Arteta replaced Smith-Rowe, who had came on for the injured Trossard, with Reiss Nelson and the substitute made an instant impact with his cross converted by fellow substitute Ben White for his first goal for the club.

Gary O’Neill’s side looked set to hold on for a point, only for Nelson to contribute in a very big way yet again as he pounced deep into stoppage time to grab an astonishing comeback victory for the delirious hosts.

Real Madrid go the whole game without a single shot on target at home as Barcelona defear them by 1-0.
Real Madrid started El Clasico as the better team but it was Xavi’s men who scored with it going down as an Eder Militao own goal.

Barca pounced on a bad touch and Franck Kessie’s shot was saved by Thibaut Courtois, yet the stop ended up hitting the Brazilian centre-back and rolling over the line.

Real Madrid pushed hard to level up the tie in the second half but struggled to create a clear cut chance with the visitors defending excellently, restricting them throughout the second half by sitting deep.

The best chance fell to Barca on the break, Kessie was left shocked as his goal-bound shot was blocked by his own man Ansu Fati.

The second leg at the Nou Camp is on April 5 with the winner set to play Osasuna or Athletic Bilbao in the final.

Sports / Liverpool Vs Wolves 2-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:32pm On Mar 01, 2023
Liverpool moved within six points of the Champions League places with a 2-0 victory over Wolves in the Premier League.
Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah scored in quick succession to secure the win and ensure Liverpool enter Sunday’s derby against Manchester United on a positive note.

Van Dijk’s goal came when he had a second header from a free-kick – thanks to good work from ex-Wolves man Diogo Jota – while Salah guided a cross home with his thigh four minutes later to double the advantage.

Darwin Nunez had earlier had a goal disallowed after the referee observed a Jota foul on the pitch-side monitor,

while Liverpool were perhaps fortunate there was no such review after Fabinho was booked for a studs-first tackle.

Before Liverpool brought more energy after the break, the best chances of an underwhelming first half both fell to Harvey Elliott via Nunez but he could not capitalise,

first heading wide when unmarked and then scuffing a shot which allowed the goalkeeper to tip the ball round the post.

Wolves offered little in an attacking capacity and the loss means they remain three points above the relegation zone.

Sports / Arsenal Vs Everton 4-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 11:22pm On Mar 01, 2023
Arsenal took a revenge in 4-0 victory over Everton as Arteta side extend their lead to 5point ahead Manchester City.

Bukayo Saka broke the deadlock five minutes before half-time with his 10th goal of the season before Martinelli added a second in stoppage-time.

Martin Odegaard made it three after the restart and Martinelli completed the rout, as the Gunners turned on the style in front of their jubilant supporters.

The convincing win gives Mikel Arteta’s some breathing space as they chase down a first league title since 2002/03.

Arsenal had been largely frustrated by Sean Dyche’s charges in the first half; despite dominating possession, they had managed just one shot with 40 minutes on the clock.

But then, an almighty outpour of relief - Oleksandr Zinchenko slipped a cute pass into the feet of Saka and after a couple of nice touches he buried it past Jordan Pickford from a tight angle.

Martinelli had the ball in the back of the net once more before half-time after Saka robbed Idrissa Gueye, but the home side’s joy was short-lived as the offside flag was immediately raised.

However, following a quick VAR check, the goal was given, and Arsenal had a healthy lead at the break.

Chances were at a premium after the restart, but again Arsenal showed they had the clinical touch as Odegaard made it 3-0,

finishing with aplomb from Leandro Trossard’s cross, before substitute Eddie Nketiah laid on Martinelli to wrap up the scoring.
The victory means, with 13 games left, Arsenal have 60 points, five more than second-placed Man City with the same number of matches played.

Everton, meanwhile, remain in the bottom three having played a game more than their rivals.

Alejandro Garnacho and Fred scored late goals as Manchester United moved into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a 3-1 comeback victory over West Ham at Old Trafford.

The much-changed Red Devils carved out early openings for Marcel Sabitzer and Garnacho but it was the visitors who had the best chance of the first period when Michail Antonio failed to make the most of a one-on-one with David de Gea on 23 minutes.

West Ham continued to look the sharper of the two sides after the interval and stole in front on 54 minutes when Said Benrahma curved a brilliant strike into the top corner from the left side of the area.

The goal wasn’t without its controversy as VAR allowed it to stand despite the ball appearing to roll out of play in the build up.

United responded by introducing the red-hot Marcus Rashford but it was the Hammers who should have made it two when Antonio saw his shot brilliantly kept out by De Gea after a rampant run down the left flank.

Substitute Casemiro then had a header ruled out for offside before the hosts levelled when Nayef Aguerd nodded a corner into his own net 13 minutes from time.

It looked like extra-time was inevitable but the impressive Garnacho had other ideas and curled a lovely effort into the far corner to break the Hammers’ hearts.

Substitute Fred made it 3-1 deep into injury-time.
Next up, West Ham visit Brighton in the league on Saturday.

Manchester United travel to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Sports / EFL Final: Manchester United Vs Newcastle 2-0 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 8:31pm On Feb 26, 2023
Manchester United have won their first trophy under Erik ten Hag thanks to a 2-0 win over Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final.
First half goals from Casemiro and Marcus Rashford were enough for the Red Devils at Wembley Stadium, besting a Newcastle side who were competing in their first cup final this century.

The first half-decent chance of the game fell to the big man up top for Man Utd, Wout Weghorst.

After holding off his marker, then controlling with his knee, the Weghorst was unable to really test Loris Karius in the Newcastle United goal with his subsequent strike – bobbling a half-volley into the third-choice goalkeeper’s mid-riff.

At the other end, Allan Saint-Maximin had been threatening to conjure a chance for the Magpies throughout the opening exchanges,

and he did just that on the 30th minute mark.

The French wide player shimmied brilliantly past Diogo Dalot on the right hand side of the penalty before forcing David de Gea into a decent save at his near post.

The goal would come from a delightful set-piece delivery from Luke Shaw,

who whipped the ball expertly onto the head of Casemiro, and the Brazilian made no mistake with his header – cannoning it into the corner of Karius’ net.

10 minutes later it was 2-0 goal by Rashford.

Sports / Bournemouth Vs Manchester City 1-4 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 9:36pm On Feb 25, 2023
Manchester City cruised to a 4-1 victory at Bournemouth to keep in touch with Arsenal at the top of the Premier League.
Julian Alvarez opened the scoring in the 15th minute when Erling Haaland’s deflected shot hit the bar gifting the World Cup winner an easy tap-in rebound.

After just one goal in six before this match, Haaland netted just before the half-hour mark when Phil Foden pushed Ilkay Gundogan’s cross back into the six-yard box where the Norway international tapped home.

On the stroke of half time, Philip Billing’s errant square ball was seized upon by Foden who beat Jack Stephens to smash home.

Six minutes into the second half it was four when Alvarez blasted a low effort which deflected into the Bournemouth net off Chris Mepham.

Jefferson Lerma netted a consolation seven minutes from time when he struck home a ball pulled from the by-line by Jordan Zemura.

The result leaves City two points behind Arsenal at the top of the table, while Bournemouth lie second-bottom.

The spoils were shared in the Madrid Derby after 18-year-old Alvaro Rodriguez cancelled out Jose Gimenez’s opener for 10-man Atletico Madrid in a 1-1 draw.
Atletico were reduced to ten men when half-time substitute Angel Correa was sent off for an elbow into the chest of Antonio Rudiger.

But Gimenez silenced the Santiago Bernabeu when he headed Antoine Griezmann’s cross beyond Thibaut Courtois.

Rodriguez matched the defender with a header of his own to salvage a point for Real late on.

The result is a blow for Real who are seven points behind Barcelona in the title race.
