According to the results of the Saturday program of calendar matches in top national Leagues we have got some sensational results and we will tell you about them.
The most useless player in a squad of the EPL vice-champion
We were waiting with a great interest for Saturday battle between the teams of Josep Guardiola and Mauricio Pochettino that was held on Manchester arena Etihad Stadium. Now the owners of Etihad Stadium due to their fantastic winning streak are breaking various records and therefore only Tottenham according to football fans’ ideas was the only opponent that before the end of the first circle would manage to stop the Citizens.
Alas, we haven’t seen the fight! The team of Josep Guardiola very easily as if it was simple training destroyed the opponent (4:1). And the most useless football player in a squad of guests was the main goalkeeper of French national team Hugo Lloris.
The popular proverb says: "The good goalkeeper is a half of team". But how can we call him a good goalkeeper when every second shot made by İlkay Gündoğan, Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling ended with a goal. Undoubtedly, now the head coach of the Tricolors Didier Deschamps has to think of the one who will defend the gates of the vice-champion of Europe during the forthcoming FIFA World Cup Russia.
Fatal mistake of Davide Santon
But if for the battle between Manchester City and Tottenham the favorite was quite predictable, the Saturday match that was held on San Siro arena in Milan between Inter and Udinese became a real sensation. And the birthday man became the left wingback of the hosts Davide Santon.
In the middle of a second half with the score - 1:1, Santon had forgotten for a second that he was playing football but not in handball, basketball or volleyball. And in order to protect his gates Santon kicked out a ball with a hand. The main referee at once showed on a point and here you are - 1:2. After such really "cold shower" Luciano Spalletti's team had rushed forward but very soon the third goal was scored (1:3).
After this ridiculous mistake Nerazzurri lost the leadership in a champion’s race, and now concede to the new leader Napoli two points (40 against 42).
