Champions League winners and losers


Marouane Fellaini
Jose Mourinho was quick to continue the attack when the Manchester Union strengthened the qualification to the elimination stages, indicating that he had participated in the Champions League groups 14 times each time.

Manager's team payback line – "Just a little curiosity for all your lovers to celebrate" – get out of the attempt to reduce social media, which just leaves everyone thinking that you're a bit bitter. It was hard for Manchester to make their H group in the U.S. season, but it was not surprising that they ended up with the Young Boys and the Valencia team, which won three of their 13 La Liga games this season.

Instead, let's praise Fellaini, who is a true architect at the University of Manchester. Two of their three group wins are inspired by Fellini's inspirational carnage. He panic in Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini in Turin and won the stopwatch against Young Boys. He could be the only midfielder or assailant in Manchester.

Fellaini is so important that the United Kingdom has a sad article about the club's performance. The supporters would have liked to see Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez dominated the side and created the prospect of Romulus Lukak in the end, and Paul Pogba as a creative force from the center right.

But it needs, and should not reduce Fellini's contributions. He may be embarrassing, but he does panic. It is perhaps worrying that Plan B often becomes Plan A, as the United States has a much slower attack, but the plan is often operational. It might be a pity that they needed to save her at home in the worst group, but keep her alive.

Manchester United
As low as the bar was, they cleaned it. Only for.

Paris Saint-Germain, finally delivering
That is their financial dominant position Ligue and PSG will be appreciated only for their European performance. During the last year, they played eight Champions League games and won only two – against Celtic and Crvena Zvezdu. Six games against Naples, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid produced four losses and two drawings.

So it looked like a victory for Thomas Tuchel's team break, which beat the last season's finalists for the first 30 minutes. It was a mirror of the style that Liverpool had been using for the past few weeks last season, early in the league game outside the opponents.

Marco Verratti is a sleek, all-inclusive central midfielder, even though he's the one to be sent. Thiago Silva is a defense leader. Angel Di Maria is much better than the ghost player we saw in the Premier League. Juan Bernat has a magnificent left wing. Marquinhos played brilliantly in the defensive circle.

But really, it's all about this front three. Between them, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani have reached 126 times in all PSG races since the start of the season. They have the right skill, speed and power, which makes him the perfect attacking unit. Keep shooting as on a Wednesday, and PSG can really win this thing.

Champion League Rescuer. If Tottenham was not quite a mission to reach the Champions League blocking stages with the two remaining games, that's impossible. The first mandatory requirement was to beat Inter with two clear goals or 1-0 and thus move forward from the Italians to the head scorecard. The second challenge side is still more complicated: the match is the easiest in the group game (PSV home) in Tottenham's most difficult, twice weekly in Barcelona. But there is still a chance.

Just as important is the fact that the win over Inter holds Tottenham brilliantly. In all competitions they have won six straight games because they lost their home to Manchester City. If they were suffered during the Champions League, then the moral outcry would have taken place before the Nordland derby. Now Mauricio Pochettino has allowed them to win in their first two big eight-day games. Avoid defeat in the Emirates on Sunday, and this will be another great week for Big Six's leader.

Mauricio Pochettino …
… and the plan on which the games took place pure perfection.

Moussa Sissoko
When I left Wembley on my way to the last line leading to Wembley Park, the song started and spread like a fire in a way that they tended when a large part of the supporters were happy with what they had just seen. "Wake me up before going, go. Who needs Baley when you have Sissoko?" They sang. It's been a long time since this real fake was heard.

Of course, the songs are not intended to be completely serious, but it embodies it Sissoko redemption Tottenham If Saturday played his job as a midfield destroyer, this was the driving force behind the penalty area that helped Tottenham winners on Wednesday. Honestly bloody play the young man.

David de Gea
Stop watches and remove the phones from the hook. Turn off all forms of communication outside the world. Lure David de Gea got into a poorly lit room and locked the door. Read to him poetry, play their love songs and add as many numbers to many as he agrees to stay.

This season, De Gea was not his best, with which we think he is acting like most other top goalkeepers. His percentage savings in the Premier League is only 67.6%, in the 16th place division. It reflects both "Manchester", which gives their opponents a clear chance, and his own shape does not match the previous brilliance.

But in big games in great moments, De Gea is easily the United frightening savior. The blocked outcome of Ulisses Garcia was unusual. De Gea has been able to react to a moving ball as if he were in life to testify that the rest of us would move more slowly.

"I know he's happy here, I know he wants to stay, and I know that the council is working to make it happen," Mourinho said after the game. If all three of these statements are true, the United sponsors can at least feel confident about one of them uncertain future.

Jose Mourinho

Speaks about this.

Real Madrid
Fearing at home, but again dice in the champions league. There is nothing to overburden Madrid's real ability to forget your La Liga battles in Europe, for example, losing Eibar for the first time in its history on Saturday before the last season's semi-final champions in the second official opening ceremony at the Olympic stadium.

In doing so, Real has confirmed its position at the top of the G group with reserves. It's happening again.

It may sound a bit patronizing to praise any team to pull at home, especially if this team is in the second best group. But it should not be. Lyon sits 15 points behind the Paris Saint-Germain Ligue And, but they've checked out Manchester City, just like no other non-English club has managed since Monaco in March 2017. Perhaps in French football, after some time, there is a certain depth.

Maxwel Cornets has been a star of Lyon against the city, and both games have three goals, but the whole team is grateful. No team has made the city this year unpleasant in implementing the Pep Guardiola plan, but largely follows from Bruno Génésio's courage, leaving at least two or three players ahead when the city was attacked. If it reduces the game to an organized chaos, where both teams turned their turns to attack, this is the best you can expect against this city in this form.

Lyon's future midfielder
What is the time when Houssem Aouar and Tanguy Ndombele play their lives against a team that might soon look like to replace their aging midfield.

Memphis Depay
On Tuesday, 90 minutes, six opportunities were created against the city. The whole team of the Manchester association formed four earlier this month against one and the same opponent. Just saying.

Mario Mandzukic
Cristiano Ronaldo is a superstar and Paulo Dybala is a marvel, but do not forget the old Mario. Mandzukic has played for only 1000 minutes in the Serie A and has joined the marathon in the Champions League, but has six goals for the league and won the winner on Tuesday to reach Juventus top spot in the group H. Ignore him at his own risk.

The Champions League premiere took place in the first time in 2006 when they finished behind Arsenal and opposite FC Thun and Sparta in Prague with a brilliantly gentle group. No teams in the race have met a number of goals, and eight of the teams in Athens were 22 or less. For those of us at a certain age, the new Ajax team has a wonderful nostalgia that once again drives waves.

Robert Lewandowski
His two goals on Tuesday took Lewandowski past Thierry Henry and the sixth place ever on the list of European Cup goalcorers. Clearly, the list is weighted by the current day by adding group strings in its current format, but it is still a great record. Accordingly, plan your career, and Lewandowski can only retire on this list with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Arjen Robben
The year is 2058, and the world is empty. The last remaining people survive by winning battles against giant cockroaches crawling on the ground. They can only be destroyed if they are placed in waste incineration plants that are then discharged into the sewer because the toxin stays in the ground.

One morning Arjen is in the patrol shift somewhere in the eternal desert, which used to be Central Europe in the past. After 40 minutes from his regular route, Arjen spots an antenna sniffing from the rear rock. Usually subordinate, usually such a resourceful beast. It will pay for this error.

Arjen gets to work immediately. Looking around the vast side of the rock, the surprise is captured in a cockroach, removing his opponent from him and condemning him to several yards in front. Arjen, having reached the cockroach, pauses for a moment, arranging it from one leg to the other, so that he can not forget.

Twenty yards away there is a combustion plant, a small hatch is open and waiting for delivery. Arjens will not dare to pick up a cockroach. He never liked that such a thing would be closer to his face than was necessary. For many faces, she had seen too much scarring.

Instead, Arjens takes his party tricks. Immersing on one side, he presses the crutch across the left foot, and the incineration plant walks around another gemstone. When the beast starts to stir, Arjens knows that he has his chance. By squeezing the cock on the inside of his left leg, he sends it curling in the air and in the burning hatch.

Arjens immediately discontinues the celebration, as he always did. The rest of the nomad tribe believed that he only celebrates his purpose and releases the earth from another toxic animal, but Arjen knew otherwise. He did not celebrate success; He rejoiced in the past when this left foot earned him the glory and glory that he had lost at the moment. This faithful left foot never allowed him. It would never be now.

Oh yes, Robben got twice against Benfica. You already know what the goals were.

The losers

There is no disaster yet, but last year's finalists are Targeting on the edge of the elimination. Most likely, Jurgen Klopp's side should beat Naples with two clear goals at home to reach the last 16. Their fate is still grabbing them, but it's a big question.

On Thursday morning he awoke, Klopp was probably thinking about how his team got himself into this marinade, overtaking PSG Anfield in his first game in this group stage. The answer lies in three performances that qualitatively differ from the scumbags, just slightly less devastating and the three winning champions in the league stage for the first time in their history.

Join the last and final final of the semifinals, and Liverpool has now lost five consecutive Champions League games away from Anfield. There is a clear problem, and it's a centralized midfield passivity and personal protection mistakes.

Klopp predicted performance in Paris. He warned his Liverpool team that they should be ready to play ugly, and they turned out to be incapable of doing so. PSG was to blame some fierce games to cover the second half, but they got this position, because Liverpool is too jovial.

If you lose one of the richest clubs in the world, it's almost embarrassing, and there's the problem of reducing the margin of error when losing in Belgrade and Naples. Klopp is forced to respond for the first time. Anfield is failing to win the Merseyside derby on Sunday, and he will fight to ensure that the grand ambitions of this Christmas will not collapse.

Jordan Henderson
Wednesday was deported on Saturday and humiliated that Liverpool's captain is not a good week. When Henderson treated the best in business, Henderson was badly damaged. He was not alone in blaming Liverpool for struggling to cope with the significant four-forward PSG, but he failed to defend the defense completely. He will get a Sunday to watch from the stands.

Marcus Rashford
Started as the center forward for once and had six shots, but only one was on the target. The most frustrating of all there were two unexploited opportunities that caused his manager to grimace and glance at the touchline. When playing in the weakest team, Rashford was given the opportunity to regain some confidence at the club level, he went on a step back.

You can rightly claim that Rashford is playing under the wrong driver. Young players need time and patience to make mistakes without fear of public abuse. The difference between Rashford's form and the Manchester United Alliance and England's convictions could be explained by the pressure he gains and how it manifests itself in the reactions of his respective executives.

Rashford has taken four games in Manchester United since he has won Liverpool twice in March, but three of the six Manchester United games. Not good.

But Rashford has to use the best of it and have to find a way. If Jose Mourinho does not work for the moment, then his only solution is to dig and hope that this current fall of the goalkeepers will disappear to take a fresh morning.

Phil Foden
We were all convinced that he would begin with Pep Guardiola's perfusion before the match, and the manager of Manchester City announced on several occasions that Foden was ready to go from a minute. And there he sat on the bench.

It's tough for me. Each game has such a pressure that it's very hard to play the new baby at the very top. When they arrive, this is usually due to the fact that the injuries have given the driver less free choice. Foden will start the final group game in the Champions League and possibly the EFL Cup quarter-final against Leicester.

But football is so important that most help young players develop. Foden's minutes in the seven Premier League this season: 8, 21, 2, 15, 18, 1, 21. FoDen minutes his two Champions League appearances this season: 1, 3. The result came when he introduced four games when Foden played more than 10 minutes: 4-0, 3-0, 5-1, 3-0.

The high-pressure scenario is far more worthy than the dead bodies and bodies that died during the second race, and FoDen, unfortunately, is lacking. Yes, he's only 18 years old, but then every coach who works with Foden thinks he's ready. It compliments him that I included him in this section because everyone is so bloody excited that he is changing.

Oh my

Christian Pulisic
Oh, dear, oh, dear

CSKA Moscow
After 55 minutes, the CSKA 1-0 goalkeeper over Viktoria Plzen, who kept their chances of getting into the stages. For the full time, they lost somewhere in the home to one of the weakest teams in the race and almost miss out on the fact that in the spring they would not even play Europa League football. Special effort.

Fat and almost safely finished at the bottom of F, after returning to Shakhtar again to lose the game only a second time. When Julian Nagelsmine leaves Julia Nagelsmina at the end of the season, there are concerns that this great over-the-top management period is coming to an end.

There is a possibility of progress, but it is very realistic to have the opportunity to finish the bottom of the D group. It would be devastating.
