Luis Suarez tells Barca fans they are ‘privileged’ to watch Lionel Messi


Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez both scored twice in Barcelona’s 5-0 win at Real Betis, but Paul Mariner says it was Ivan Rakitic who pulled the strings.

Luis Suarez says we should feel privileged to watch Lionel Messi after the duo masterminded Barcelona’s 5-0 win against Real Betis on Sunday.

Suarez and Messi scored two each as Barca scored five second-half goals to move 11 points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid, who were held by Girona on Saturday.

Ivan Rakitic opened the scoring for Barca in the 59th minute but the game quickly became about Suarez and Messi, with the latter’s range of skills even drawing applause from the home fans at the Benito Villamarin.

As well as scoring two, Messi also set up the fifth for Suarez, with a mazy run followed up with a deft pass to the Uruguayan striker.

«In every game, Messi adds a special touch,» Suarez told reporters after the final whistle. «This was another match in which Leo was spectacular. People should feel privileged to be able to watch the best player in the world.»

Barca boss Ernesto Valverde, who’s been on the end of many mesmerising Messi displays in the past as the opposition coach, is now happy to be on the same side as the five-time World Player of the Year.

«We played well and Messi was incredible,» Valverde said in his postgame news conference. «We’re living at the same time as him, so we just have to enjoy him.

«I’ve coached against him in the past and I know what he’s capable of. Now I can enjoy him. It’s spectacular to watch him every day. He is the best player there is and the best there will ever be.»

Lionel Messi celebrates after scoring a goal against Real Betis.
Lionel Messi celebrates after scoring one of his two goals in a runaway win against Real Betis.

Messi’s magic in the second half came after Thomas Vermaelen, making his 13th successive appearance for the club, was forced off with a hamstring problem. He will undergo tests to find out the extent of the injury on Monday.

Samuel Umtiti, himself returning from a seven-week injury layoff, replaced the Belgium international just before half-time with Betis having been more than a match for Barca until that point.

«It was a tough one,» Valverde added. «Betis took risks and pressed high. It was difficult because they went man-for-man all over the pitch. We struggled in the early stages because they changed their way of playing, with three at the back.

«But as the game progressed, we got better. We persevered, they took risks and we punished them. Patience has given us the result.»

Barcelona are now unbeaten through their first 20 games in La Liga, with Valencia (14 points) and Real Madrid (19) even further back than Atletico.

However, Valverde says the Catalans will not take their lead at the top of the table for granted with 18 matches still to be played, before turning his attention to Thursday’s Copa del Rey quarterfinal against Espanyol, which Barca go into trailing 1-0.

«La Liga is not boring for us,» he said when asked if Barca’s commanding position could lead to complacency. «We won’t get ahead of ourselves. There are still 18 games to go but, of course, every game we win is another big step forward.

«We have to keep going in the same vein. Now it’s time to think about the Copa del Rey game on Thursday and to try and turn the tie around.»

Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi deliver 9/10 performances for Barcelona


Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez both scored twice in Barcelona’s 5-0 win at Real Betis, but Paul Mariner says it was Ivan Rakitic who pulled the strings.

Barcelona put on an irresistible second-half show to thrash Real Betis 5-0 on Sunday, with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez scoring twice each as they tightened their stranglehold on La Liga.

The Catalans moved 11 points clear of second place Atletico Madrid with a convincing win at the Benito Villamarin, as their title rivals fade farther into the distance.

Positives

The best news for Barcelona was that their hiccup against Espanyol in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday — which ended their unbeaten run — remains just that, a hiccup. As they ran riot in the second half, any hopes Atletico, Valencia or Real Madrid fans had that the loss might develop into a slump were vanquished.

Negatives

It was nice to see Samuel Umtiti back, but it came at the cost of an injury to Thomas Vermaelen. The Belgian had been thriving in the team since the French defender’s injury, but now he will take Umtiti’s place back on the treatment table — where he has spent too much of his career.

Manager rating (out of 10)

8 — Valverde’s tactics worked again, with Barcelona tiring out Real Betis before hitting them for six, figuratively speaking and almost literally speaking too, in the second half. Some of Barcelona’s football matched up to the kind of passing moves they produced under Pep Guardiola.

Player ratings (1-10, with 10 the best. Players introduced after 70 minutes get no rating)

GK Marc-Andre ter Stegen, 6 — Although the goalkeeper had few saves to make, Real Betis’ high press forced him to not go short with his deliveries in the first half as he usually does. He ended up kicking the ball long, but ufortunately for Betis, he is excellent at that too.

DF Nelson Semedo, 7 — The Portuguese right-back is starting to show Valverde what he can offer. Some pacy runs down the right gave Betis problems and he did not look panicked when he had to seep the ball in tight spaces.

DF Gerard Pique, 6 — Had little to do in the first half against a Betis side set up to keep the game tight. Tried to drive Barca forward as they looked for the opening goal after the break.

DF Thomas Vermaelen, 5 — On his 13th consecutive appearance, bad luck struck again for the Belgian defender. He pulled up injured in the latter stages of the first half with a hamstring problem and will undergo tests on Monday. Before the injury he looked a little off the pace, letting Joaquin escape him in the area, though the winger was off target.

DF Jordi Alba, 6 — The Spanish defender has been one of Barcelona’s best players this season but this was not his day. Got forward like usual but his crossing and passing from wide on the left was below its recent standard.

MF Sergio Busquets, 7 — Took a few minutes for him to get his head in the game, but when he did, he was imperious. Busquets pulled the strings for Barcelona in the second half, rotating his position with Ivan Rakitic, and set up Messi’s first goal.

MF Ivan Rakitic, 8 — The former Sevilla skipper seemed to relish taking on his former rivals and charged through on goal to open the scoring with a low strike. Rakitic later crossed for Suarez to volley home and piled on the misery for the hosts.

MF Sergi Roberto, 8 — This was a dream week for the midfielder, who signed a new deal with the club on Friday and then played in his natural position. For most of the season he has been used at right-back, but here he put on a midfield masterclass, linking up brilliantly with Messi and Suarez.

MF Andre Gomes 5 — The one Barcelona player who did not fit in. Although Valverde has defended the Portuguese midfielder recently, this was another demonstration that he is not playing at a high enough level to deserve a place in the side. Passes were over hit and misplaced, and eventually he was substituted.

FW Lionel Messi, 9 — By the end it was getting silly. Messi was picking up the ball and beating two, three, four men, with Betis unable to stop the rampant Argentine. He’d already done the damage by this point, dispatching the second coolly when in on goal and then completing his brace with a magnificent solo dribble and finish.

FW Luis Suarez, 9 — The Uruguayan marksman has scored in seven consecutive league games and is looking like one of the best forwards in the world again. He started the season in a rut, but is now firing on all cylinders. Set up Rakitic’s opener and then rocketed two home himself.

Luis Suarez & Lionel Messi
Luis Suarez and Leo Messi made short work of the hosts and further showed why Barcelona are sitting alone atop La Liga.

Substitutes

DF Samuel Umtiti, 6 — The Frenchman made his first appearance since suffering an injury against Celta Vigo on Dec. 2, but with his side on the front foot he had nothing to worry about at the back.

MF Paulinho, 6 — Replaced Gomes with 25 minutes remaining, helping Barcelona to keep moving the ball and driving forward.

FW Gerard Deulofeu, NR — Given a few minutes at the end but was barely able to touch the ball on his first appearance since Nov. 26.

Kylian Mbappe injury, Dani Alves red critical in loss to Lyon — Unai Emery


All three goals in PSG-Lyon were world-class, though none was more important than Memphis Depay’s wonder goal in the final minute of stoppage time to give Lyon the win.
Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes absolutely body slams Kylian Mbappe in the box, forcing the young Frenchman out of the game on a stretcher.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery bemoaned the first-half injury to Kylian Mbappe and the second half red card to Dani Alves as key moments in the Ligue 1 leaders 2-1 loss to Lyon on Sunday.

Layvin Kurzawa cancelled out Nabil Fekir’s opener in spectacular fashion in the first half but Memphis Depay crashed home the winner late in the second to cut PSG’s lead at the summit of Le Championnat to eight points.

«Kylian’s injury and Dani’s red card lost us control,» said Emery after the match at Groupama Stadium. «The team played well but circumstances made the difference. With the chances and the control that we enjoyed, we deserved better.

«We did not play well during the opening 10 minutes. The equaliser was deserved. In the second half, we started the way that we finished the first. We lost match-winning options but the team kept working hard and trying to score.

«Lyon also possess individual quality, as we saw in the last kick, which won it.»

Speaking with Canal+, Marquinhos was blunt in his assessment that Lyon did not deserve to take all three points against 10-man PSG.

«I do not think that Lyon deserved to win,» the Brazil international said. «A draw would have been a logical result. They came knocking and got two goals.

«We need to do better, we know that. We are going to work hard but a draw would have been better.

«Playing with 10 men is tough. We tried to play and kept possession but we conceded a last minute goal and it killed the match. In the first half, we were better but we were tired out after the red card. We nearly held out but Lyon got the winner eventually.»

Speaking in the mixed zone after the final whistle, Marco Verratti admitted that playing with 10 men was not easy but that such a defeat would not knock PSG’s confidence and self-belief.

«It is never easy to play with 10 men but we did well,» said the Italy international. «We did not concede too many chances but Lyon have good players. Depay showed that he is a great player with the goal that lost us the match.

«Every game is a test. Lyon are a good team with good players. We created chances but 10 against 11 is not easy. We pushed on anyway but we really suffered. If we doubt ourselves after each loss, it means that we have no real confidence in ourselves. We know that we can do things better.

«This is not the sort of match that will knock all of your confidence, the same way you do not feel invincible after winning 8-0. That is football and we must continue to work and not feel worried.»

Next up for PSG are Guingamp at home in the Coupe de France round of 32 before a visit from Montpellier in Ligue 1.

«Ювентусу» нужно больше от Игуаина, чтобы идти в ногу в Серии А, добиться успеха в ЛЧ


Канал ESPN ФК Стиви Никол чувствует Пауло дибалой должен покинуть » Юве «для того, чтобы возродить свое старое, но переход в «Реал» в картах?

В понедельник принимает «Ювентус» Дженоа вечером в своей первый матч после зимнего перерыва. С «Наполи», победив «Аталанту», чтобы записать еще три очка, Массимилиано Аллегри стремится обеспечить своей стороны проанализировать ожидания, чтобы идти в ногу с лидерами впереди Лиги.

Это не будет легко и Аллегри сделал, что очень ясно. «Ювентус» привычка первенствовать при построении импульс, но, как правило, колебаться после перерыва. На самом деле, » Юве » проиграл оба матча после возвращения из сборных в этом сезоне, чтобы доказать этот факт.

Учитывая, Генуя отлично в обороне, обладая пятой лучшая оборона в Серии А, «Бьянконери» должны быть в своих лучших проявлениях идти вперед, чтобы найти своих целей. Не просто подвиг, когда мы рассматриваем травмы Пауло дибалой, отсутствие Хуана Куадрадо и гол Гонсало Игуаин забил засухи.

Аргентинский нападающий не забивал за «Ювентус» в Серии А С момента нахождения победителя в важном матче против «Наполи» в начале декабря. То есть 527 сыгранных минут и забитых мячей. Хотя он всегда работал на команду, он должен быть более амбициозным и летальная у чужих ворот, тем более что Федерико побывал в наших воротах и Дуглас Коста по-прежнему интеграции в стороне и Марио Манджукич больше защитник, чем нападающий в эти дни.

Природа стиль » Юве » игру можно усложнить жизнь вперед, в стороны, особенно как игроки Аллегри выступает, кто готовы пожертвовать в обеих фазах игры, а не играть на свои сильные стороны во все времена. Однако, когда вы объединяете неэффективности Игуаин в непоследовательной форме Дыбала в этом сезоне и количество шансов Манджукич пропустил, он начинает провоцировать беспокойство.

«Ювентусу» хватило гола в них, чтобы удержать победу в Серии А, как они это делали, опережая соперника, а их соперники в этом сезоне, но что происходит, когда они сталкиваются с лучше стороны, те, которые не пугают, например, европейскими грандами в Лиге Чемпионов?

Дженоа должна помочь обеспечить Аллегри с более четкие ответы. Поскольку Давиде Ballardini взяла, Генуя пропустил только три гола в восьми матчах в Лиге. Против «Ювентуса», Ballardini говорил о том, как компактный и трудолюбивый его стороне должны быть для того, чтобы сделать что-нибудь из игры в понедельник вечером.

«Ювентусу» нужно Гонсало Игуаин забьет больше голов, если они хотят реализовать свой потенциал.

Ballardini также отметил, почему игрок отлучки, как правило, вреда Юве меньше, чем другие. В отличие от «Наполи» или любой другой стороне в Серии А, » Юве » — это команда, которая зависит ни на звезды, ни на определенный стиль игры. Они приспосабливаются к любой ситуации, сохранив при этом определенный уровень игры, благодаря гибкости и методы Аллегри это.

Играть в схеме 4-3-3 на своем стадионе, вполне вероятно, как Игуаин и Манджукич будет играть в открытую с одного из Коста побывал в наших воротах или рядом с ними. Матчи Лиги нельзя назвать решающими, когда дело доходит до определения победителя скудетто просто, особенно на этой стадии сезона. Даже если «Ювентус» проиграет, они все-таки избранное, чтобы еще поднять очередное звание из-за их глубины состава и их опыт.

То, что Аллегри и руководства мысли о том, что необходимо сделать для дальнейшего укрепления этой стороны, чтобы обеспечить успех в Европе. Матч против «Тоттенхэм Хотспур» быстро приближается, и «Ювентус» должны наращивать обороты для того, чтобы прибыть на матч в своем оптимальном состоянии.

С Аллегри надеется начать очередную победную серию, Фабио: площадь и Беппе Маротта смотрите на потенциальных покупок, которые могли бы укрепить общий отряд. В то время как итальянские гиганты были связаны с «Арсенала» Месут Озил и христианин «Тоттенхэма» Эриксен, маловероятно, либо прибудет. Вместо этого, «Ювентус», кажется, больше заинтересованы в создании своего будущего, инвестируя в таланты, по их мнению, вырастут в суперзвезд, а именно Кван-песня Хань и Пьетро Пеллегрини.

Бывший северокорейский принадлежит Кальяри, но уверенно делал свое дело в Перуджа. Игрок, который позиционирует себя хорошо, ПАСЕ вперед и ускорение гарантирует, что выделяется, подавляющее противников и использовать свои шансы с замечательной эффективностью. Только 19, «Ювентус» заинтересованы в том, чтобы добавить его в свои ряды, но, учитывая политическую ситуацию со своей родной страной и забот, где все зарплаты выплачиваются игроку в конечном итоге, это будет не сделка, которая может быть выполнена с минимальными усилиями.

Что касается Пеллегрини, он удивительный талант. Всего в 16 лет он продемонстрировал свои умственные силы, настрой на победу и невероятный талант при каждом удобном случае, скоринг против таких, как Рома и Лацио. Выход из нападающий, в свою очередь, ПАСЕ, отделка и телосложения сделает его в будущем. Он был использован некоторыми из самых больших клубов в мире, так что остается неясным, смогут ли гиганты Турин победить в конкурентной борьбе за будущие услуги.

Как управление продолжает работать, команде нужно только заниматься с матчем против «Дженоа». Еще одна победа будет в значительной степени помочь шансы в борьбе за очередной титул.

Dani Alves, Layvin Kurzawa at fault as Paris Saint-Germain slip up at Lyon


All three goals in PSG-Lyon were world-class though none was more important than Memphis Depay’s wonder goal in the final minute of stoppage time to give Lyon the win.

Paris Saint-Germain’s lead at the top of Ligue 1 has been cut to eight points after a 2-1 defeat away at Lyon. Layvin Kurzawa spectacularly cancelled out Nabil Fekir’s stunning opener on the stroke of half-time at Groupama Stadium but Dani Alves’ red card made things harder for Unai Emery’s men, who eventually succumbed to a ferocious late Memphis Depay strike.

Positives

On a bad night for PSG, Adrien Rabiot was a rare shining light. Although the France international started slowly and conceded the foul that enabled Fekir to open the scoring, he recovered well and was commanding from then on. However, aside from Rabiot, there was little to be positive about from a Parisien point of view.

Negatives

Alphonse Areola needs to take a look at his positioning on Fekir’s opening goal. Rabiot and Kurzawa can be quizzed on their roles in Lyon taking the lead but no matter how good Fekir’s shot from the free kick was, Areola should not be beaten like he was.

Kurzawa might have equalised with a superb first half strike but he gifted Lyon the ball back less than a minute from the end of the match and Depay punished that in style. Overall, the Kurzawa’s performance was more of an argument for Yuri Berchiche to keep starting ahead of him than it was for him to take his starting role back.

PSG’s fragile character also showed itself again, which is worrying ahead of Real Madrid in the Champions League next month. Even after Alves’ rush of blood to the head got him sent off, they should have been capable of holding on for the draw.

Manager rating out of 10

4 — Emery’s starting XI made sense in places, especially with Neymar missing, but the Spaniard was not helped by Fekir’s early goal, Kylian Mbappe being forced off injured and then Alves’ red card. Still, his full-back selections were questionable, considering Berchiche’s superiority of late.

Player ratings (1-10; 10 = best. Players introduced after 70 minutes get no rating)

GK Alphonse Areola, 4 — The French shot stopper made some important interventions but he was poor on Fekir’s opener and blown away by Depay’s winner.

DF Dani Alves, 3 — The Brazil international teed up Kurzawa for his superb equaliser but was otherwise dreadful and talked himself into a straight red card in the second half — something he should have known better than to do.

DF Marquinhos, 6 — The 23-year-old was largely solid alongside compatriot Thiago Silva in central defence and could have done nothing to prevent either goal because Rabiot committed the foul and Kurzawa gave the ball away.

DF Thiago Silva, 6 — The captain was more or less calm and collected alongside Marquinhos and the pair were let down by the likes of Alves, Kurzawa and Areola at the back.

DF Layvin Kurzawa, 4 — The France international was caught out in the build-up to Fekir’s opener, even if Rabiot was the one who committed the foul, and the left-back appeared to have redeemed an otherwise error-ridden performance with a superb equaliser, only to throw it away by gifting Lyon the ball for Depay to crash home the winner.

MF Giovani Lo Celso, 4 — Although the Argentinian has been excellent in defensive midfield recently, he went missing in Lyon and his second half booking was one of the few moments that reminded everybody that he was still on the pitch.

MF Marco Verratti, 6 — The Italy international did not look as comfortable as he has done in recent matches and it was not a surprise when he was finally handed a yellow card in the second half.

MF Adrien Rabiot, 7 — Rabiot mature in midfield and metronomic at times — it was a shame that Lo Celso and Verratti could not mirror his level of performance up against an inspired Tanguy Ndombele.

FW Kylian Mbappe, 5 — The Monaco loanee only lasted 35 minutes before he was substituted after a heavy collision with Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

FW Edinson Cavani, 4 — The Uruguayan nearly scored one of the goals of the season with a first half effort from close to the halfway line but other than a booking and a few efforts at Lopes’ goal, he did not come close to setting a new record as PSG’s all-time top scorer.

FW Angel Di Maria, 5 — The Argentina international was quiet after an excellent start to 2018 and Emery chose to withdraw him when Alves saw red.

Dani Alves
Dani Alves’ straight red card cost Paris Saint-Germain the match against Lyon.

Substitutes

FW Julian Draxler, 5 — The German replaced the injured Mbappe but never really got into the match, despite being on the pitch for nearly an hour.

DF Thomas Meunier, 6 — The 26-year-old was a big improvement over Alves at right-back after the Brazilian was dismissed but should he have started anyway?

MF Javier Pastore, NR — The Argentina international made his first appearance of 2018 but the last four minutes or so at the end was not long enough for him to get truly involved.

Chelsea do not need to buy a striker — Hazard


Hazard has scored eight Premier League goals this season

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard does not believe the club need to buy a new striker in the January transfer window.

The Stamford Bridge club have made inquiries for West Ham’s Andy Carroll, 29, and Stoke’s Peter Crouch, 36.

But Hazard, 27, has backed current pair Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshuayi and says tall target men like Carroll or Crouch may struggle to fit in.

«I think we’re happy with the team we have. It depends how you want to play,» he told the London Evening Standard.

«We have two very good strikers in Alvaro and Michy. If they are not ready to play I can play striker, so I don’t think we need [another one].

«Football is simple — keep the ball on the ground and try [to play] like we did. Because we are missing chances people are saying we need another striker, but if we are scoring goals, we are the best attack in the League and no-one can say we need a striker.»

Chelsea have scored 45 league goals this season, the same as Arsenal but fewer than the rest of the top six Premier League sides.

They are in advanced talks with Roma about a £44m deal for striker Edin Dzeko and left wing-back Emerson Palmieri.

But the Belgium playmaker, who scored twice in his side’s 4-0 win over Brighton on Saturday, says the arrival of a big man could have an impact on their playing style

«Who is the best team this year? Manchester City. The strikers, [Gabriel] Jesus and [Sergio] Aguero, are not big,» added De Bruyne.

«It’s simple. If you want to play with long balls you need a target man, if you want to keep the ball on the floor you need a small guy.»

Kylian Mbappe injured as Memphis and Lyon down PSG

Memphis Depay condemned 10-man Paris Saint-Germain to only their second Ligue 1 defeat of the season following a superb stoppage-time strike for Lyon.

Nabil Fekir opened the scoring for the home side with a brilliant free kick after just two minutes before Layvin Kurzawa drew PSG level on the stroke of half-time.

The league’s runaway leaders were reduced to 10 men shortly before the hour mark after Dani Alves was shown a straight red card for dissent.

But PSG looked set to keep Lyon at bay only for substitute Depay to strike in the third minute of injury time with a remarkable 25-yard winner.

PSG travelled to Lyon on Sunday night without star man Neymar after the Brazil international was sidelined with a thigh injury.

And the visitors, who hammered Dijon 8-0 on Wednesday, were trailing within 95 seconds following Fekir’s long-range set piece.

Fekir spotted Alphonse Areola off his line, and the midfielder took advantage of the PSG goalkeeper’s questionable positioning to beat him at his near post.

Matters then got worse for PSG when Kylian Mbappe left the field of play on a stretcher.

Mbappe was chasing on to a through ball from Marco Verrratti, but was taken out by Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

Lopes got enough of the ball to ensure he would not be given his marching orders, but Mbappe was unable to continue and his game was over before the half-hour mark.

An off-colour PSG looked set to be heading into the break behind only for Kurzawa to rifle home an equaliser in the third minute of injury time of the opening period.

Alves floated the ball into the penalty area and Kurzawa was there to hammer home an exquisite left-footed volley from 12 yards.

The visiting side emerged from the interval chasing the victory, but they were a man down with 57 minutes gone after Alves was sent off.

Referee Clement Turpin was poised to issue the former Barcelona defender with a booking following a rash tackle on Tanguy Ndombele, only to change his mind following Alves’s over-zealous protest to the original yellow card.

Alves’ teammate Verratti was fortunate to remain on the pitch after he knocked the red card out of Turpin’s hand.

With a man advantage, Lyon pressed for all three points in the hope of moving above both Marseille and Monaco and into second place in the table.

Unai Emery’s side stood firm for all but every kick of the second half before Depay, the former Manchester United forward, came inside on his right foot to unleash a spectacular winner for the hosts.
