Venue: Etihad Stadium
The hosts were poor in the last Test match as they lost the game by an innings and 53 runs. Joe Root unexpectedly was the star with the ball as the England captain took four wickets in the third innings of the game. The match was also special for a young Ollie Pope as the 22-year-old completed his first Test ton with a remarkable inning of 135 not out on the first innings.
Mumbai City out an end to a disappointing run of two straight defeats with a 2-0 win over defending champions Bengaluru FC in their last ISL encounter. Meanwhile, Hyderabad FC are struggling in their debut Indian Super League campaign as they are at foot of the table with five points have just one victory so far.
Liverpool were even grateful to goalkeeper Alisson Becker for not falling behind in the second half. However, like crucial victories against Leicester, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace earlier in the campaign, Liverpool left it late to snatch another vital three points in their quest to end a 30-year wait to win the title as Firmino smashed home six minutes from time.
Argentine striker Angel Correa put them in front in the 62 minutes before Leonesa levelled seven minutes from the end through Julen Castaeda. Sergio Benito then delivered the winner for the hosts in the second period of extra-time.
Indian Super League is one of the two football leagues in India along with I-League. Its inaugural edition was held in the year 2014. Five years down the line, Indian Super League has flourished to cement its place in the cricket-obsessed nation like India. ATK and Chennaiyin FC with two titles under their belt have won the most number of championship titles.
Chennaiyin continued to dominate the midfield battle which restricted Jamshedpur's forays forward. A terrific brace from Nerijus Valskis (13', 74') and fine strikes from Andre Schembri (42') and Lallianzuala Chhangte (87') helped Chennaiyin register their third win on the bounce. Sergio Castel's (71') second-half header turned out to be just a consolation for Jamshedpur FC.
According to a report from Goal, Manchester United move for Bruno Fernandes is off as the Lisbon outfit refuse to budge on the €80 million asking price. United co-chairman Joel Glazer ruled out the transfer due to his concerns over the asking price for the midfielder. The Portuguese club are adamant over the transfer fee and United were unable to structure a deal.
A win will not only break Liverpool’s season-long unbeaten record but also help Wolves overtake Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur into the fifth position in the 2019-20 Premier League points table. All three teams are currently tied on 34 points but Wolves have played 23 games while United and Tottenham have played 24 each.
Neroca failed to pose any real threat whatsoever, as the league leaders closed in on another victory. Despite being up by two goals, they were hungry for more and made no mistake in adding another goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
Hyderabad are on a ten-match winless run and have lost their last four games in the ISL. They need five points from their last five matches to not become the worst team in the league's history in terms of total points earned.
Right the start of the year, Cristiano Ronaldo has been blazing guns and has fired a goal in every match. Last night was no different as Juventus locked horns with Roma in the Coppa Italia 2019-20 quarter-final match at the backyard of the Bianconeri. Ronaldo netted his seventh goal at the 26th minute of the match. The former Real Madrid player slammed his seventh goal in the four games.
Isaac Vanmalsawma’s 89th-minute controversial goal brought Jamshedpur FC level in their previous ISL 2019-20 encounter against Chennaiyin FC earlier this season. The ball looked to have deflected off Vanmalsawma’s hands on its way to the net but the goal stood and Jamshedpur escaped with a point after being behind for more than an hour in the game.
