Atletico Madrid’s incredible home form in Champions League knockout rounds continued despite their game against Juventus being the first at the Wanda Metropolitano as they secured a vital 2-0 win in their last 16 first leg. Prior to Wednesday’s game, Diego Simeone was unbeaten in 11 home knockout games with the Rojiblancos, a run which has seen his side dispatch of AC Milan, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Chelsea in the process. It was always likely to be a game full of fouls and misdemeanours and Diego Costa, just eight minutes his return from a long-term injury, picked up a yellow card that rules him out of the return leg in Turin. With Cristiano Ronaldo set to hit a freekick, the forward charged out of the wall and saw yellow. The tactical chess match predicted beforehand proved to be exactly that and the game’s first chance was all the result of work from the Portuguese. Ronaldo tried an ambitious effort that ended up going behind for a corner, from which Leonardo Bonucci had a free header that he should have done better with.

Juve were at sixes and sevens at the beginning of the second half and Costa should have put the hosts ahead and had he more minutes under his belt he likely would have. Antoine Griezmann pounced on a Giorgio Chiellini error and set him through. The Brazil-born Spain forward got clear of Bonucci, holding him off, but completely sliced his strike as he approached Wojciech Szczesny when he would have expected to find the net. Atleti had another chance moments later and this time they had Szczesny to thank. Griezmann found space to get on the end of a bouncing ball. He looked to have executed an excellent lob over the Pole but the Juventus No.1 just got a finger on the ball to tip it onto the crossbar before Chiellini cleared.

A familiar face looked to have broken the deadlock against Juventus as Alvaro Morata thought he had given Atletico a lead with an excellent header, only for VAR to intervene and referee Felix Zwayer to overturn his decision to award the goal upon second viewing. Morata did play a part in the La Liga side going ahead shortly after though. A corner was met by the ex-Juventus forward, who climbed higher than anyone to aim a low header at goal. Mario Mandzukic stuck out a leg and blocked the effort, but it fell for Jose Gimenez who was able to convert despite being in a crowded box with bodies all around him. Mandzukic then inadvertently assist a second goal for his former club, this time teeing up Gimenez’s central defensive partner Diego Godin. Again sticking out a leg, the Croatian put the ball back into the path of the Atleti captain, who took advantage of Szczesny alreay having gone to ground by firing in from an angle.

After Juventus succumbed to a 2-0 first leg defeat to Atletico Madrid in their Champions League Round of 16 clash, Cristiano Ronaldo left the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano a little disgruntled and also left a controversial reaction on his famous return to Madrid after leaving the city in the summer. During the game the Juventus forward was taunted by a section of the Atleti fans, and responded by showing five fingers to signify the number of Champions League titles he has.

Then in the mixed zone as he left the stadium he reiterated the point while also making a gesture of one hand open – five – before making a zero: “I have five Champions Leagues, and Atletico have none.”

When also pressed on the likelihood of Atletico Madrid making it to the quarter-final, Ronaldo was elusive, “We will see in the second leg,” he stated.

Do you think Ronaldo’s reaction after the game is uncalled for or Atleti fans deserves it?

Transfer: Solskjaer, Woodward clash over Pogba’s move to Real Madrid

Transfer: Solskjaer, Woodward clash over Pogba’s move to Real Madrid Pogba Solskjaer 1143342567

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is prepared to let Paul Pogba join Real Madrid this summer in a £120million move, the UK Sun reports.

Pogba was seen as key to Solskjaer’s rebuilding project at Old Trafford, when he took over last December.

The France midfielder was keen on joining Barcelona last summer and, despite a mid-season upturn in performances, he remains keen on leaving the club and is said to have informed Solskjaer of his desire to join Real Madrid.

United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, believes losing Pogba to the Spanish giants would be a major blow to United’s image and reputation across the world.

However, Solskjaer feels he can’t afford to carry passengers, as he looks to rebuild the club and is willing to let Pogba leave.

The Norwegian coach knows the pressure will be on during his first full season in charge and he wants players that he can rely on and that are fully focused on his project.

EPL: Premier League introduces new rules on penalty kick, substitution, handball, cards for managers, others

EPL: Premier League introduces new rules on penalty kick, substitution, handball, cards for managers, others Premier League Rebrands DesignStudio

The International Football Association Board, IFAB, has approved new rules and changes ahead of the 2019/2020 season.

The 2018/19 Premier League campaign finished last Sunday with Manchester City claiming the title.

The new rules affect Freekicks, substitution, handball, dropball, and cards for managers.

It is already established that video assistant referee, VAR, will be used in the league next season.

These alterations will have a huge impact on the Premier League sides.

The IFAB has clarified the situation in regards to handball decisions ahead of next season

Handballs:

The new rule state that goals will be disallowed if the ball accidentally strikes a player’s hand in the build-up.

A free-kick will also be awarded outside of the penalty box if a player has accidentally created an advantage by handling the ball.

The IFAB has also had its say on drop balls and is aiming to get rid of ‘manufactured’ restarts.

IFAB explained that, “The current dropped ball procedure often leads to a ‘manufactured’ restart which is ‘exploited’ unfairly or an aggressive confrontation.

“Returning the ball to the team that last played it restores what was ‘lost’ when play was stopped, except in the penalty area where it is simpler to return the ball to the goalkeeper.

“To prevent that team gaining an unfair advantage, all players of both teams, except the player receiving the ball, must be at least 4m (4.5 yds) away.”

Substitution:

Another rule which has been introduced for next season sees some major alterations to substitutions.

Now players will have to leave the pitch at the nearest point rather than walk slowly across the field late in games and waste time.

Penalty kicks

This has certainly been overdue with goalkeepers taking advantage on penalty situations for a while now.

But from next season they will have to have one foot on the line.

Not only must keepers be touching the line, they will not be allowed to touch the goalposts before the ball is kicked.

Cards for coaches.

Referees will now be able to show them a yellow card or a red card in the same way they do with players on the pitch.
