We have to put away the chances that we created. We’ll compete as we look to win the next game.”We don’t talk to the referees. There are incidents that look obvious live and we believe that VAR is there for that, to be able to consult it if there is no certainty. We believe that is the intention that exists with technology and VAR. “If not, there’s no reason for it to exist. We’re human and we make mistakes, but one thing is if we make a mistake, we can’t review the evidence, but if there’s the possibility to review the evidence and we don’t, it’s difficult to understand.” last_img read more

Opinion 5 takeaways from Big Ten title game blowout

Sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott (15) breaks away on an 81-yard touchdown run during the Big Ten Championship Game against Wisconsin on Dec. 6 in Indianapolis. OSU won, 59-0.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorThe Ohio State football team found out it was playoff-bound when the final College Football Playoff rankings were announced Sunday afternoon, but the Buckeyes wouldn’t have earned that spot without their drubbing of Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game a day earlier.OSU (12-1, 8-0) topped the Badgers, 59-0, locking up its 35th Big Ten title. With a new quarterback in the lineup and having recently learned of the death of walk-on defensive lineman Kosta Karageorge, the Buckeyes’ dominating performance came as a surprise to many.But surprise or not, The Lantern sports editors picked five key takeaways from the win that booked OSU’s ticket to the playoffs. 1. Redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones didn’t miss a stepJones — starting in place of injured redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett — completed an eight-yard pass to redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas on the first play of the game. Then five plays later, he heaved the ball downfield and found the hands of senior wide receiver Devin Smith for a 39-yard touchdown.Less than two minutes is all it took for Jones to show everyone at Lucas Oil Stadium — and anyone watching on TV — that he did, in fact, go to Indianapolis to play football.Throughout the game, the Glenville High School product showed off his world-class arm strength and surprisingly reliable accuracy and decision-making skills on his way to MVP honors.Jones totaled 257 yards and three touchdowns as he completed 12 of 17 pass attempts in the game without turning the ball over. Anyone who predicted those numbers likely also predicated on OSU win, but with almost nothing to go off of, not many could have expected Jones to have the success he did.It was a near flawless performance, and had he struggled, a win alone might not have been enough to get the Buckeyes to the playoffs.2. Senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett might be the Buckeyes’ most important playerBefore Saturday, the argument could have been made that Barrett had been the main key to OSU’s success. But with the way Jones performed, a quick look to the defensive line shows who the Buckeyes’ true leader from a physical and emotional standpoint is.Bennett donned No. 53 in honor of Karageorge, and played with a chip on his shoulder from start to finish. He tallied a career-high four tackles for loss to go along with two sacks, and forced a fumble that was recovered and returned for a touchdown by sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa.Bennett had made mid-game speeches to spark the Buckeyes more than once this season, but it was clear that his play on the field — and leadership on the sidelines — helped key OSU to arguably its most important win since the 2002 National Championship Game.3. Sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott simply outplayed Wisconsin’s Heisman candidateWisconsin redshirt-junior running back Melvin Gordon is likely going to be a Heisman Trophy finalist as the nation’s top rusher, but on Saturday he wasn’t even the best player at his position on the field.OSU’s Elliott broke Gordon’s own Big Ten title game record with 220 rushing yards, and he did it on just 20 carries. Gordon managed just 76 yards on his 26 attempts and couldn’t help the Badgers put points on the board, while Elliott scored 12 points on his own.Through 13 games, Elliott has tallied 1,402 rushing yards on 217 carries with 12 touchdowns while adding 26 receptions for another 208 yards through the air.Elliott’s play of late has drawn comparisons to former Buckeye Carlos Hyde, and if he keeps improving, he could easily end up having an even better collegiate career.4. The Buckeye defense answered the Bell and then someSophomore safety Vonn Bell, along with the rest of the Buckeye defense, lived up to their “Silver Bullet” mantra Saturday night. Bell, who tied for the team lead in tackles against Wisconsin with seven, recorded his fifth interception for the season late in the first quarter to set the tone for the Buckeye defense. The Buckeyes not only held Wisconsin redshirt-junior quarterback Joel Stave to 187 yards passing on 17 of 43 through the air, but they also shut down potential Heisman finalist Gordon all night long. For an OSU defense to perform like they did on the biggest stage in the Big Ten conference showed that the Buckeyes are…5. Deserving of the No. 4 seed in the College Football PlayoffThe Buckeyes leapfrogged Texas Christian to get into the inaugural College Football Playoff and they deserve it. OSU put up a 59 spot on the second-best defense in the country and held the nation’s leading rusher to a 2.9 yards per carry average. The Horned Frogs did indeed dominate the Iowa State Cyclones, but it doesn’t help that the Cyclones entered that game 2-9 on the season. It also hurt the Big 12 in that they no longer have a conference championship game. Do not be surprised if the Big 12 isn’t actively looking for two new members before the start of next season.The Buckeyes put on a clinic in the conference title game and will now get a shot at the No. 1 team in the country in Alabama. Nick Saban versus Urban Meyer is must-see TV and you can bet all eyes will be on the Superdome on Jan. 1 for the Sugar Bowl. Kickoff in New Orleans is set for 8:30 p.m. read more

first_imgReal Madrid are weighing up a massive £100 million to secure the services of a Premier League star following a disastrous start of the seasonAfter the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Los Blancos have failed to find a suitable replacement in the summer, which turns out to be a dare mistake.With a record of four wins, two draws, and three defeats, the defending European champions already trail arch-rivals Barcelona by four points. Moreover, they’ve failed to clinch La Liga victory in four consecutive matches, having failed to find the back of the net three times in a row.With Julen Lopetegui’s job already on the line, the former Porto manager is willing to splash out high figures to bring the much-needed reinforcements to his attacking department.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa?

Review Manchester United – Juventus

first_imgPaulo Dybala scored the goal which made the difference in Juventus’ 1-0 victory at Old Trafford.Manchester United starting lineup: David de Gea, Ashley Young, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Romelu Lukaku Juventus starting lineup: Wojciech Szczesny, Alex Sandro, Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci, Joao Cancelo, Blaise Matuidi, Rodrigo Bentancur, Miralem Pjanic, Juan Cuadrado, Paulo Dybala, Cristiano RonaldoAfter 17 minutes of quiet, careful football, Juventus broke the deadlock through Paulo Dybala. Cristiano Ronaldo initiated the goalscoring action with a useful cross. Cuadrado tried to get to the ball at the near post, but Chris Smalling did enough to prevent that. Dybala was in the right place at the right time as nobody touched the ball and he executed with ease to give Juventus an all-important 1-0 advantage on the road.Paulo Dybala’s fourth goal of the #UCL campaign gives Juventus the 1-0 lead over Manchester United 🔥Catch the action on #BRLive:— Bleacher Report Live (@brlive) October 23, 2018Report: No deadline day move for Dybala George Patchias – September 2, 2019 There will be no last-minute transfer of Paulo Dybala from Juventus this summer.According to Sky Sports and its associates in Italy, the player is…The goal stung Manchester United. Five minutes later, de Gea was forced to make a save on a powerful shot by Joao Cancelo. It took a while, but The Red Devils did recover thanks in large part to Old Trafford’s noisy, enthusiastic crowd. They took over the game and started pushing forward with more and more energy. The speed of Cuadrado, Ronaldo and Dybala, though, made Juventus really dangerous on the counter. In the 38th minute, Ronaldo had a free kick shot go right at de Gea. The ball slightly changed direction just before it came to the Spanish keeper, who deflected it right to Matuidi. The Frenchman took a first-time volley which bounced off the ground and was elegantly punched out by Manchester’s goalie.The home team’s momentum disappeared as the half wore on. It was more than obvious that Jose Mourinho will have to make some changes, as Juventus were cruising to the three points they came to get.In the 52nd minute, Ronaldo nearly made it 2-0 for the visitors. A very simple action ended with Cuadrado passing the ball on to the wide open Portuguese, who took it first-time and would’ve found the corner of the net if one of the best goalkeepers in the world didn’t stand between Manchester United’s goal posts. David de Gea made an incredible save to deny Cristiano. The stadium was brewing as the second half was moving along. Juve surrendered possession to their rivals and let them do all the hard work.There were half-chances, but no real opportunities up until the 75th minute, when a bad mistake by Bentancur in his own half could’ve been very costly. The lost ball came to Paul Pogba, who didn’t hesitate and fired a long-range strike which ricocheted off the post, into Szczesny’s head and left the pitch. The Old Lady got a bit lucky. With ten minutes to go, Allegri pulled out the goalscorer Paulo Dybala and replaced him with Federico Bernardeschi. Dybala was not happy.Andrea Barzagli came in for Juan Cuadrado a couple of minutes later, while Douglas Costa took the place of Joao Cancelo. Mourinho did not make a move, despite his team’s inferiority. Eventually, after three minutes of added time, referee Milorad Mazic blew the final whistle. Juventus came into enemy territory, conquered Old Trafford and did it by demonstrating how superior they are compared to their adversary. 1-0 Juventus was the final score.last_img read more
