Top of the table by one point, Benfica know that a slip-up will be pounced upon by Porto, who kick off earlier that night. Tenth in the standings, Moreirense are a midtable outfit free from relegation concerns (11 points away) and unlikely to make Europe (13 points away). In general, their record against Benfica is abysmal.
We went in and trained on the Sunday and all the players were tired or carrying injuries and trying to play through them. With such a small squad, ultimately it caught up with us in the end and our cup run cost us our Premier League status. I hear people saying all the time 'would you swap it' but I don't think you would - you are in football to win things, and we won the FA Cup. Emmerson Boyce: \"It was a very strange week with a huge low so soon after winning at Wembley.

Diego Simeone's men will get the chance to leapfrog Barca next weekend when they entertain the champions at Wanda Metropolitano, but they must first take care of Granada at Los Carmenes this Saturday. With newly promoted Nazaries now struggling after a fine start to life in La Liga, we're backing Atleti to bag the three points they need to stay in touch at the top of the table.
Burnley back to vintage selvesBurnley's second-half display in their 2-1 win over Champions League-chasing Leicester on Sunday signalled a return to the grit and character that has been the Clarets' blueprint since they returned to the top flight in 2016. There was more of the same in Manchester on Wednesday as Wood and Rodriguez showed the ruthlessness up front the east Lancashire side have sorely missed at times this season.
Another chance for Schick, he gets away from his marker Ben Davies then beats Dele Alli to the corner and flicks his header just wide. Best opportunity of the match for Werner. Angelino squeezes the ball through to him and he pokes the ball straight at Lloris at chest height and it is out for a corner.
Despite the moans and grumbles from fans at the Emirates, Arsenal are unbeaten in all competitions at home this season, winning six and drawing the other three of the nine matches they have contested there since August.
But I’m not every player. I’m 34, I’ve had a long career and I’ve earned well. I’m in a place where I could give something up. Not every footballer is in the same position. Yet suddenly the whole profession has been put on the spot with a demand for 30 per cent pay cuts across the board. Why are footballers suddenly the scapegoats? \" How the past few days have played out is a disgrace.
That could result in a windfall for the unheralded league. Bermudez stressed that the 10-team league has not decided to complete their season, merely \"to keep playing for as long as the situation permits. There are five regular season matches to play before the top four teams go into a semi-final and final round play-off expected to begin in late April.
Odds are excellent for the over 3.5 goals mainly because Feyenoord is not having the best of seasons this despite winning their last two league games winning first with 3-0 away at Venlo and last round with 3-2 at home with Waalwijk their defense is quite weak but they are better at scoring goals compared to last season, this while Groningen has 4 wins in a row at home at this moment scoring 9 goals total, and I see it likely there should be a couple of goals scored in this one while the winner I can not really predict here.
Scoring the goal that sent us through is a feeling that cannot be described,\" he added. Alvaro Morata sealed the 4-2 aggregate win at the end of extra-time which made Atletico the first team to beat Liverpool at Anfield in European competition since city rivals Real Madrid -- Llorente's former club -- defeated them 3-0 in 2014.
Sadly for two fallen giants, neither look likely to qualify for the Champions League. It is important though that they qualify for the Europa League, especially in the current financial climate. Oh and both sets of fans will want to see their team finish above their bitter rivals. We expect a reasonably competitive clash that will end honours even as has happened in both of their last two meetings.
With the Toffees' handy habit of notching consolations and Liverpool's continued troubles at the back a factor, we think there is value in coupling a home win with a both teams to score selection for Wednesday's derby, while our correct score prediction settles on a 2-1 Liverpool win.
Paper Round’s view: The most important thing is that clubs, fans, players and staff are kept safe, but looking abroad to China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan, it is clear that there are ways to return to a more routine way of life. That should allow the Premier League to get back underway, but it may feel impossible as Britain is on the cusp of a spike in cases.
Now Madrid have to focus on the first leg of this last sixteen tie. They didn't have the easiest of qualifying groups and finished second behind PSG. Only one of their three home games were won, a 6-0 hammering of Galatasaray. The other two ended in score draws against Club Brugge (after trailing 2-0) and group winners PSG.
The decision was taken \"in view of the dynamics of today's events with new coronavirus infections and corresponding suspected cases directly related to the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2,\" the statement said. It said a general assembly would be held on Monday where it would recommend to the clubs the both leagues be put on hold until April 2.
Even if you are not a neutral, you are pulling for Atalanta because you want to play them in the next round. This one of those strange pairings that happen,\" says Honigstein. If you are a club like Manchester City or Real Madrid, you are thinking the next game could be easier than the last 16 game. This is a game people might look at with ulterior motives, Atalanta being a newbie, the Cinderella story and playing exciting football.
Both teams last round in Ligue 1 had hard games. Bordeaux lost at home against Strasbourg 0-1 and Brest had 0-0 at home against Nice. I doubt they will be again defensive and it is time for over/ Visitors are not so good when playing away from home but they can score. For sure there will be some changes in teams, but I expect here open game for goal more. No calculations, this is Cup game, one leg and there will be no calculations at all. Last one between these two back in September finished 2-2 and over 2.5 look like good bet.
