VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: Manchester United vs Benfica 2-0 [UCL 2017]

FULL-TIME – MANCHESTER UNITED 2-0 BENFICA – It was not Manchester United’s best performance, but they got the job done with two goals either side of half time. They won a penalty early on in the contest through Anthony Martial, who stepped up to take it, but the Frenchman saw his effort saved by Mile Svilar in Benfica’s goal.

The goalkeepers luck ran out towards the end of the opening 45 minutes, however, as a long-range strike from Nemanja Matic hit the post and rebounded off his back to gift the home side the lead. Benfica had a brilliant opportunity to equalise after a poor pass from Eric Bailly in the second half, but Raul Jimenez saw his effort cannon off the post. Shortly afterwards, Marcus Rashford was brought on and instantly won another penalty for his side which Daley Blind stepped up to take.

The Dutch international calmly slotted his strike into the back of the net, to secure all three points for Jose Mourinho’s side.

Wits Emerges 2017/18 Absa Premiership Champion After 1-0 Win Over Orlando Pirates

An early goal courtesy of Gerald Phiri Junior gave Bidvest Wits their first 2017/18 Absa Premiership win when they beat Orlando Pirates 1-0 at Bidvest Stadium in Johannesburg on Yesterday.

The win for coach Gavin Hunt's side leaves them sitting in 13th spot on the log standings with five points from six matches.
The Clever Boys netted as early as the fifth minute when Phiri Junior converted with a powerful shot in the box after Pirates' defence failed to clear a diagonal ball from the right wing.
Both giants had a bright start and three minutes later, Wits goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs was saved by his crossbar after Thabo Qalinge rattled the woodwork.
In the 12th minute, the hosts protested for a penalty after Happy Jele fouled Amr Gamal in the box, but their call fell on deaf ears as referee Luthando Ndzandzeka waved play on.
With 15 minutes to go the interval, coach Gavin Hunt's men pushed forward and Reeve Frosler cut inside and smashed a left-footed effort, but it went wide off the upright.
At halftime, it was the reigning league champions who went to the tunnel enjoying the lead.
Upon their return, Thabo Matlaba nearly found an equaliser after a brilliant pass from Thamsanqa Gabuza but the left-footed player saw his well-struck shot fantastically saved by Josephs.
Sredojevic introduced Mpho Makol towards the 60th minute and they upped their attacking prowess, but Matlaba missed after a great set up by the former.
Despite enjoying the ball possession, Pirates continued to fire blanks in front as the Clever Boys managed to claim their first win in the league this season.
The defeat leaves the Soweto giants sitting at No 3 on the log table with 11 points from six matches so far.
Bidvest Wits: (1) 1 (Phiri 5')
Orlando Pirates: (0)
Bidvest Wits: Josephs, Khumalo, Ntshangase, Hlanti, Phiri Jnr (Rodgers 69'), Keene (Scott 66'), Damjanovic, Motshwari, Monare, Frosler, Gamal (Klate 79')

Orlando Pirates: Sandilands, Maela, Nyauza, Matlaba, Dube, Jele, Nyatama, Lorch (Makola 57'), Qalinge (Morrison 71') , Foster (Kutumela 52'), Gabuza

Suarez Celebrates 100th Liga Appearance

Lionel Messi was the star of Barcelona’s blistering start to the season yet with the Argentine suffering a rare off night and big-money signing Ousmane Dembele missing through injury, it was Luis Suarez who claimed the headlines in his 100th Liga appearance for the club on Yesterday.

Luis Suarez

The Uruguayan sealed a comfortable 3-0 victory over Catalan rivals Girona with a clinical finish late on to reach a remarkable tally of 87 goals in his century of league games.
The figures are all the more impressive given that it took Suarez almost two months to break his duck in Catalonia and that his form has been erratic this season. Before Saturday, he had just one league goal to his name and he sat out Tuesday’s 6-1 thrashing of Eibar.
“It’s important for a forward who lives for goals to score. We’re delighted for him but it’s also important to point out that when he hasn’t been scoring he has been giving us other, important things: hard work, a team player, linking play,” said technical secretary Robert Fernandez of Suarez after the game.
A controversial figure, having twice been banned for biting opponents, Suarez has been a mainstay in the Barca frontline since joining from Liverpool in 2014.
Known for his tireless work ethic, he has also laid on 51 goals in the league for teammates with his 100 games comprising 77 wins, 11 draws and 12 losses.
“Forwards live for goals. They can be low on confidence at times but they score and everything changes,” coach Ernesto Valverde said of Suarez.
“His relationship with scoring goals is good for us. We’re delighted with how many chances he’s able to create.”

Sundowns Knocked Out Of CAF CL Following Defeat By Wydad Casablanca

Wydad Casablanca overcame Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 in the 2017 CAF Champions League quarterfinal second-leg match at the Stade Prince Moulay Abdallah on Saturday night.

Sundowns - Teelamford
The Moroccan giants went on to defeat the South African giants 3-2 on penalties following a 1-1 draw on aggregate and they advanced to the semifinals.
The Brazilians went into the game leading on aggregate having defeated the King of Titles 1-0 in the first-leg encounter.
The Kings of Titles dominated the match from the start as they searched for an early goal and they nearly scored 11 minutes into the game.
The Sundowns defence gave Guillaume Nicaise Doa a chance to shoot, but he was brilliantly denied by goalkeeper Denis Onyango.
Pressure was mounting on the Brazilians' defence and Tiyani Mabunda put his body on the line in the 22nd minute.
Wydad midfielder Abdellatif Noussir unleashed a powerful low shot from the right hand side and his effort was blocked by Mabunda.
However, the Kings of Titles' pressure finally paid off four minutes later after the Brazilians were caught napping.
An unmarked Salah Eddine Saidi headed home Mohammed Ounajem's cross in the blind spot - making it 1-0 to Wydad.
With the halftime break fast approaching, Tebogo Langerman tried to beat Wydad keeper Zouhair Laaroubi from range.
But the Sundowns fullback's effort sailed over into the stands and the score was 1-0 to Wydad at halftime.
Hlompho Kekana had a chance to level matters for Sundowns six minutes into the second half, but the midfielder fired inches wide of the target.
The Brazilians, who were defending champions, were struggling to penetrate the Kings of Titles defence which was led by Amine Atouchi.
Pitso Mosimane, the Sundowns coach, decided to introduce Yannick Zakri in the 73rd minute as the visitors searched for the equalising goal.
However, the Ivorian winger was tightly marked by the Wydad defence with time running out on the clock.
The last chance of the game went to Sundowns, but Kekana was denied by Laaroubi from a free-kick which was in a promising area.
Wydad won the match 1-0 on the night, but the tie ended in a 1-1 stalemate on aggregate and a penalty shootout followed.
Zakri, Percy Tau, and Bangaly Soumahoro all missed their spot-kicks and Wydad won 3-2 on penalties - booking a place in the semifinals where they will face Algerian side USM Alger.
Wydad (1) 1 (Saidi 11')
Sundowns (0)
Wydad Casablanca: Laaroubi, Rabeh, Noussir, Atouchi, Saidi, Nakach, Gaddarine, Bencharki, Doa (El Karti 76'), Ounnajem, El Haddad (Khadrouf 84').
Mamelodi Sundowns: Onyango, Langerman, Arendse (Soumahoro 89'), Madisha, Mabunda, Kekana, Manyisa, Zwane (Lebese 84'), Morena, Tau, Billiat (Zakri 73').

Neymar-less PSG Match Held By Montpellier Resulting 0-0

Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery said he expects Neymar to return from injury for Tuesday's Champions League match against Bayern Munich, after his side struggled to a 0-0 draw at Montpellier on Saturday in the Brazilian's absence.


Neymar missed the game after suffering a right foot injury, and PSG duly saw their perfect start to the Ligue 1 season come to an end in their first match without the 25-year-old since his world record move from Barcelona.
"We will wait until tomorrow (Sunday) to see about his return," Emery said.
"There are three days left to prepare for the match, but I think that if everything goes normally he will be back."
The capital-city side have seen their early lead at the top of the table cut to one point this weekend after reigning champions Monaco thumped Lille on Friday.
Emery wants his men to be able to break down stubborn opposition without their key playmaker.
"We need all the players, when a player is missing it's important to maintain the level and pace," the Spaniard added, after his side mustered just one shot on target.
"Others have had time to play and they've helped the team, but we can't say that the match would have been different with Neymar.
"We will play more matches with Neymar this season, but we also need to work (when we're) without a player."
Rising star Kylian Mbappe had the best of the visitors' chances at the Stade de la Mosson, but the 18-year-old was profligate in front of goal.
Without Neymar pulling the strings, Paris were toothless for the first 45 minutes, with some players perhaps keeping one eye on the Bayern game.
PSG did finally create a decent chance shortly after the restart, as Montpellier threw away possession on the edge of their own area and Mbappe curled a tame shot straight at home goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte.
The teenager, who will become the world's second-most expensive player behind Neymar when he completes his permanent transfer from Monaco next year, should have broken the deadlock, but headed wide when unmarked from only a few yards out.
Mbappe was starting to make an impact, as he raced through on goal only to scuff his shot and allow the home defence to clear.
Striker Edinson Cavani, who missed a penalty last week after an argument with Neymar, had an appeal for a spot-kick waved away after going down in a heap under a potentially goal-saving tackle from defender Pedro Mendes.
But last season's runners-up were left frustrated by Montpellier's organisation and 5-4-1 formation.
Bordeaux preserved their unbeaten record as substitutes Alexandre Mendy and Jonathan Cafu scored in a 3-1 home win over Guingamp.
Jimmy Briand had missed a penalty for the visitors before Francois Kamano put Jocelyn Gourvennec's side ahead and Yannis Salibur equalised.
But Gourvennec's changes worked perfectly as Bordeaux moved into third.
Mariano Diaz scored his fifth Ligue 1 goal for Lyon since joining from Real Madrid, but Cedric Yambere grabbed away team Dijon a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Lyon's Nabil Fekir had also netted for the fifth time this season, before Dijon turned the game around with goals from Naim Sliti and Xeka.
Teenager Houssem Aouar levelled before Diaz's penalty, but Yambere pinched a point.
Caen beat Amiens 1-0 to go sixth, while 10-man Troyes edged out bottom club Metz 1-0 thanks to a last-minute strike by Samuel Grandsir.
Monaco had put the pressure on PSG at the summit as Radamel Falcao took his goal tally for the season to 11 with a brace in a 4-0 thrashing of Lille.
The champions were barely made to sweat by their pitiful hosts, whose coach Marcelo Bielsa is now under serious pressure after a six-match winless run.

I'm Not Going For Nigeria - Tammy Abraham

England under-21 striker, Tammy Abraham has denied reports he is set to switch international allegiance to Nigeria in a bid to feature in next year's World Cup.

Tammy Abraham - Teelamford

According to British media reports, the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) have been keen on recruiting London-born Abraham, who remains eligible for the African nation through his parents.
"I have informed the FA that I remain available for selection for England," Swansea player Abraham said in a statement. "Contrary to reports in the media I would like to clarify that I have not agreed to switch my national team allegiance.
"I can confirm I met the president of the NFF after our last game against Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday given he is a friend of my father."
Chelsea's Abraham, 19, is currently on a season-long loan at Swansea City seeking regular first-team opportunities.

VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: Manchester United Vs Burton Albion 4-1 EFL 2017

Manchester United Vs Burton Albion 4-1 EFL 2017

For the fourth time in the past seven matches, United got on the scoresheet four times, with a brace from Rashford, another goal for Martial and a first of the season for Jesse Lingard.
Rashford now has five goals in his past five games, almost half his total of 11 last season, while Martial has managed four in just 280 minutes of total, not a bad return for a player who only got eight in the  entirety of the previous campaign.
Burton claimed a consolation late on when Lloyd Dyer drilled home a shot following a goalmouth scramble after Joe Mason had headed against the crossbar but it was otherwise very one-sided.

Manchester United's Overall Performance Win Over Everton "Wasn't Good"- Gary Neville Claims

Gary Neville admitted Manchester United's overall performance in the 4-0 win over Everton "wasn't good", but insists there is a successful pattern building with their play.

Manchester United

United hit three late goals at Old Trafford, as they have done on numerous occasions this season, though the scoreline arguably flattered the hosts.
Neville added that Jose Mourinho's patience has been a success so far this season, and says United's side have the maturity to deal with this approach.
