#AFCON21: Mali beats Tunisia in a match marked by a big arbitration controversy

The Malians obtained three points with a narrow victory (0-1), the end of the match was heated with a big controversy.

The referee of the match between Tunisia and Mali got a little tangled and whistled the “end of the match” in the 85th minute of the game.

Realizing his mistake, he restarted the game before whistling again in the 89th minute, without making additional time contested, which was to be several minutes!

Unheard of at the international level, with a legitimate anger from Tunisians who could not defend their chances of equalizing until the end.

On the Ligue 2 side, Ali Abdi (Caen) did not enter for Tunisia, just like Mamadou Fofana (Amiens) for Mali.

Ten Hag’s revolution begins with impressive victory over Liverpool

Man United vs Liverpool

The Red Devils breathed fire into Erik ten Hag’s reign with a determined 2-1 victory over Liverpool – marking just a second win from 13 Premier League H2Hs – after the buildup to the game witnessed crowds of protesting home fans.

Considering the negative headlines surrounding the club, it was scarcely believable that Erik ten Hag’s side could leapfrog Liverpool in the Premier League standings with a victory here.

However, the Reds’ rocky start meant that they arrived at Old Trafford looking for their first win of the season.

It wasn’t to be, however, as United produced an excellent display of attacking prowess and defensive resilience to defeat their old adversaries.

Ten Hag became the first United manager to start his tenure with two defeats in over a century, after his side’s 4-0 defeat to Brentford last time out.

His charges started wickedly here though, full of energy, and United’s pressure almost told ten minutes in with Anthony Elanga guiding his effort onto the post.

A regular fixture in their title-winning season, Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk looked uncharacteristically nervy and a menacing Jadon Sancho opened the scoring with a composed finish just five minutes later.

The game was played at breakneck speed, with Liverpool’s defence split open on numerous occasions and United showing new spirit and determination as the Old Trafford crowd roared their side on.

Liverpool improved as the half drew to its conclusion, with Lisandro Martínez clearing off his own line, but a stubborn United backline held out as the HT whistle blew.

Smelling blood in a nervy defence, the hosts would strike again just eight minutes into the second period after some swift buildup play saw Marcus Rashford set free before the forward slotted past Alisson to double his side’s lead.

Liverpool had little answer for the majority of the half, but Mohamed Salah headed in with little under ten minutes remaining to set the scene for a thrilling Old Trafford finale.

It would be a night to remember for United however and there was a tangible sense of optimism, despite the earlier protests, as Ten Hag’s name rang around Manchester, with the Red Devils capping off a fine performance by seeing out the victory.

Champions League: Chelsea 1 vs 3 Real Madrid Match report - Naija News 247

34-year-old Karim Benzema yet again showed he ages like a fine wine, scoring a hat-trick in a punishing 3-1 victory over Chelsea.

Benzema’s 10th goal in his last four matches put ‘Los Blancos’ in the driving seat to set up a potential semi-final showdown against fierce rivals Atlético Madrid or Manchester City.

Stamford Bridge was the venue of a shock 4-1 defeat to Brentford at the weekend and the ‘Blues’ were hoping no hangover would exist against the sterner test of 13-time UEFA Champions League (UCL) winners Real Madrid.

Big-game player Kai Havertz blazed over early on when played through by N’Golo Kanté, but it was ‘Los Blancos’ man-of-the-moment, Benzema who was out to write the headlines, as he had done single-handedly in the miraculous last round comeback in Paris.

Benzema’s first goals again blue

Benzema set Vinícius Júnior free down the left after a clever one-two. Vinícius, then pulled the ball back towards the incoming Benzema, whose header from a distance flew past Edouard Mendy before he could even lift a glove.

Benzema’s Brace

The Frenchman then remarkably made it five goals in 53 minutes of UCL play, this time pulling off the back of Thiago Silva and meeting Luka Modrić’s inch-perfect cross to guide home for his 36th in all competitions.

Chelsea’s consolidation goal

The ‘Blues’ proved it wasn’t over yet as Havertz pulled one back, heading across former Chelsea keeper, Thibaut Courtois and into the net following a Jorginho quarter-back style ball.

Benzema’s Hattrick versus Chelsea

Chelsea rang the changes at HT, but remarkably, went 3-1 down within a minute of the restart.

A long pass over the top should have been dealt with comfortably, but Mendy made an unforced error as the ball got caught under his studs, allowing Benzema to roll home and become only the fourth player to score successive UCL hat-tricks.

Chelsea’s struggles

‘Blues’ captain, César Azpilicueta almost provided an immediate response with a 25-yard drive heading for the top corner, but he was denied by a strong top-handed Courtois wonder save.

Low on confidence, substitute Romelu Lukaku then headed wide from six-yards out when it was easier to score, perhaps summing up Chelsea’s evening.

The result ends a run of six UCL matches without defeat for Chelsea and consequently breaks Thomas Tuchel’s nine-match unbeaten record against Spanish opponents.
