REAL MADRID VS JUVENTUS CHAMPIONS LGE FINAL
This is an unfamiliar kit for Real Madrid.Time 00:33 mins Juventus;I have noticed are already playing in Real Madrid's half,which suggests very early on that,they are not
going to sit back,and allow Real to attack only!Appearances can be deceitful,though..Wow!that was higuan with a beautiful shot,after skipping two tackles,there..Navas did not manage to grab the ball,at the first time of asking...Nerves?This is going to be interesting because I can see Juventus have set
into their familiar defensive structure but then sprang forward:which led to another shot (this time from Pjanic).I suspect they would expend a lot of energy doing this...Oooh!Dybala gets
an early yellow card.Juventus need to score first,or Madrid would gain an unassailable momentum.I have noticed that Real Madrid have not recorded a single
shot at the Juventus goal post.Time:18:15 mins.Goaal!Time 19:44,the first opening for
Real Madrid and it's a little deflection away from Buffon,that gives the Spanish giants
the lead(from Ronaldo's boot,again!)Real Madrid 1 Juventus 0.I saw a little lapse from Juventus,as they were taking a little longer to settle back into their defensive formation:And Cristiano punishes-This game is not over,by any means...because Real Madrid look vulnerable in defence as well.Time 23:22 mins.Ronaldo looks up for this
game,today!Dah?Why would he not ...be?Hugain needs to respond.Oh!men!that was
an opportunity for Real Madrid:they had a number advantage in that attack,as the
game got stretched for Juventus defenders.But Isco,could not keep control of the ball
as his momentum unbalanced him.There was at least two other Real Madrid players
waiting to see what he would do,with that goal chance!It was a good counter attack that left Juventus open,and Isco has scuffed the chance,by losing the ball at a bad time.Time 26:26 mins-I knew it....goooaal!Juventus score!Manzukic!....that was awesome!!A back flick,that sailed over a poorly positioned Navas.Navas saw the danger but,was not in the right spot,as the ball dropped behind him:in the only
possible place,to bounce into the net.Game on!1-1 now ....This was somehow expected.I said the Spanish side showed vulnerability at the back.There are more
goals in this game,of course.Both teams are taking a breather for now!
Ramos gets a yellow card,too...for bringing down Alves unnecessarily.I think Juventus are playing Real Madrid's game because it is very open now.Time32:17.This
game may be won in the first half because they would both be worn out and tried in the second?I think Zidane needs to bring in Bale now;this is game suits him.
Time 39:52 mins Juventus are taking shots from second balls.Carvajal gets a yellow
card.Meeen!this is getting tasty?The referee is going to have to make a serious decision soon;trust me!Juventus have been the better side but,Real Madrid are making them play their way of football!Real are finishing stronger towards the end
of this first half?Time 45:00(1:18 of 2)END OF FIRST HALF,still 1-1.The players go
into the dressing rooms.
SECOND HALF BEGINS..
No changes yet...Ronaldo gets behind the Juventus back four,on pace,alone.Maybe Madrid need to exploit this ...tactics?Again,the same plot...but,this time it is Isco.Warning signs for Juventus?They have managed to recover,in both cases but they cannot afford more....Juventus do not look convincing on corners.Kroos gets a yellow card.A little lapse from Juventus there,and Real Madrid would have scored again,like in the first goal?Higuan seems to me,to be a temperamental player over a 90 mins period.Juventus are getting haggard and slow.I don't know whether it is self
inflicted or 'Madrid pressured'?Zidane needs to change Isco now!I know he got them here with his goal,and he has not played badly;Bale's pace would open up a lot of space in this game.Ohh!What a goal!2-1 to Madrid,Casemiro scores...I can see Zidane
going crazy,on the touch line!I thought the energy levels would play a part today.And
the Juventus side have been showing lethargic signs,today.Ronaldo strikes!It's another goal for Real Madrid?Gooaal 3-1.It is going away from Juventus,now surely?
Time 63:59 mins.History was made there;that was Ronaldo's 600th goal.The golden
boy has made his mark in football history!Pjanic gets a yellow card.61% possession for Real Madrid now.Time 67:06 mins-Sandro gets a yellow card.Higuain has gone missing?Caudurado gets a yellow card after a few minutes on the pitch?Really,that is just...silly!Gareth Bale comes on...for Benzema.Time 76:48 mins.Modric has been
tireless...Wow!that nearly was goal number two for Juventus?That would have...
made the rest of the game,interesting.A nice header flick but,it just missed the side
post.Time 82:17 mins-Caudurado gets a second yellow,and is off!If there was any slime chance for Juventus ...it has gone!That is it!Goooal 4-1 Ascensio scores...after coming from the bench.Madrid fans are jubilating!They have won this competition for the 12th time.It is very hard to argue about their greatness!Time 90:00(extra time)
FINAL WHISTLE....BACK TO BACK WIN for Zidane and Real Madrid,brilliant!It was
not to be for Buffon...His career has been something.
CHAMPIONS LGE:LEICESTER CITY VS SEVILLE (2-0)
LEICESTER VS SEVILLA (second half)
Second half begins...That was a terrible way to lose possession by seville.(straight pass to a Leicester player?)Wow!a shot ...out of nowhere,and it was nearly 1-1 on the night.The ball ...just hit the cross bar from afar,and the follow up,is not
a good one.Oh my word!It's 2-0 Leicester have scored again?Albrigton scores...Just
as Seville missed that glorious rebound,leicester go to the other end,and score...wow!
Incredible...54:49.Leicester were under a bit of pressure from Seville before that second goal came....That is a crucial goal!It is important now,that leicester do not
switch off.This situation suits the premiership side because they can sit back a little and break on the counter....Sevilla look like their energy is been sapped out of them,
with every minute that goes by...Vitolo has got a yellow card for dissent.It would
be cruel for this game to be snatched out of leicester's hands from this point.Time 61:38 mins.The commentator keeps reminding us that a single goal from Sevilla would take us into extra time.Sevilla try their own version of a long throw but,Kasper is competent with his catch .Everything seems to be going leicester's way!Great game,to watch.Iborra joins the list of Seville players...who have complained to the referee about something or nothing.A chance for Vardy.Great work to get the ball into the box by Mahrez but, the opportunity is lost.Time 68:09 mins Corner kick for Sevilla conceded by Simpson under pressure.Unbelievable,Vitolo backs into Slimani,and
yet he gets the free kick!How does that work,out?The game is stretched out now...
Leicester have a go,at one end then,Seville have a go...at the other end.Seville have
67% and leicester's possession is 33%.at the moment.Who cares about,that...now,more than the scores?The ball has being at the edge of leicester's
18yard box for the past 60 seconds...it is unrelenting!And the fans..are biting their
nails into shreds.Oh no!Nasri ...gets a second yellow card;and he is definetly off...yes.
I said it....He looked like a liability.Vardy butts head with him,so the referee gives both of them yellow cards .As Nasri was on ...a yellow card,already .....he gets sent off.
Nasri takes ages to get off the field.Time 75:35.How do Seville chase this game with 10 men?Leicester need to slow down the game,to make the one man advantage count...PENALTY?Seville get a penalty...!Oh no!Schmeichel takes the player out as he pushes away the ball from the advancing seville attacker.Wow!Nzonzi is ...in position
to score from the penalty spot?I think he would miss!Yes,he does!It was a poor one,though!Slimani is offside.81:10 mins.
On the balance of play,Sevilla have not done enough,tonight.The Seville manager has been sent to the stands... This game has been full of incidents...82:44.It looks like he was complaining about a referee decision.(I think)Vardy!!Oh no!He heads it straight to the sevilla keeper Rico.It would have sealed this tie..I hope Seville do not score here because,Leicester have squandered two glorious chances to end this tie.
Number three..miss!A counter attack from Leicester,and Vardy ends up one on one with Rico,and he balloons it into the stands.Mahrez gets a yellow card,for wasting time on his substitution.Time 90:00 mins.4 extra mins added by the officials.Can Leicester hold on for a historic win?Time 3:14 mins into the extra time.Corner kick for Seville.This is their last chance.Nothing!Final whistle,phew!
(Leicester city go into the quarter-finals of the champions league!)What a game!
