FEATURED PLAYER

(ALESSANDRO FLORENZI):
Alessandro Florenzi is probably the most impressive product of the youth academy of AS Roma since Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi, and the complete defender has already become an important player for the club and the country. The talented footballer, able to operate with both the right-back and the right-back, is probably best remembered for scoring a wonderful goal from midway in the Champions League match against Barcelona, ​​but there’s a lot more for him than an occasional surprise blow. While he usually played as an extreme during his early career, Florenzi switched to the defense attack on both the national team of Rome and Italy, and that turned out to be a very good play for his career. While helping the Gialorossi to return to the old days of glory, the right-back also left his mark on the international stage, especially impressive since Antonio Conte took charge of the reigns in the national team. Although he has not yet realized his full potential, Florenzi already has an impressive high-flying experience and a bright future is anticipated in the game.

HIGHLIGHTED TEAM (CSKA MOSCOW):

CSKA Moscow

The teenager Nelson crowned his first start in the Bundesliga with a reinforcement for the match since TSG came from behind in Bavaria. Coach Julian Nagelsmann will expect more of the same from the England Under-21 international, who also scored an impressive free kick for his country during the international break, when Lyon arrives in Sinsheim. Hoffenheim, who finished third in the Bundesliga last season, will face this match against their French counterparts with confidence in the back of that result, as they head for the first Champions League victory.

Lyon recovered from a 5-0 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain by beating Nimes 2-0 on Friday, but a long list of injuries leaves coach Bruno Genesio with no options for the trip to Sinsheim. The captain of the club, Nabil Fekir, is ruled out by an ankle injury, which could also cause him to miss the reverse match in France. However, the attacking trio of Memphis Depay, Moussa Dembele and Bertrand Traore still represent a threat of goal for the leaders of Group F. TSG forward Ishak Belfodil spent four years under contract in Lyon.

The two sides have met 12 times in Uefa competitions, each of which wins five games and shares two draws.

The last time they met in the Champions League was in 2002-03, with United beating Juve 2-1 at home and 3-0 in the second group stage.

United fans will also fondly remember the dramatic semi-final comeback in Juve en route to lifting the 1998-99 Champions League trophy to complete the 3-pointers.

The game will be broadcast live by BT Sport 2. BT Sport subscribers will be able to broadcast the match online through the video player and the BT Sport application.

The Tottenham Hotspur Champions League campaign began with a disappointing defeat at the hands of Inter Milan on matchday one.

Christian Eriksen had given the Lilywhites a well-deserved advantage early in the second half and they had a chance to conclude the game before the disaster occurred in the final five minutes at San Siro.

Mauro Icardi equalized with a dazzling shot from outside the area and then Matias Vecino reacted with the greatest speed in the penalty area to make the victory after the Spurs did not clear their lines from the corner.

What that result means is that the Lilywhites have little margin for error if they want to advance to the knockout stages for the second consecutive season.Boost the tribute of fans to Chas Hodges, Brighton’s classy response: 5 moments that you may have missed

Dortmundo vs Monaca Live Stream, Watch TV Online and gut Update

The second Dortmund venues were paired with Atlético de Madrid, Club Brugge and the Principality team, who played in a tie in April 2017 when their bus was attacked as they were leaving the team’s hotel.

The bomb attack, which injured defender Marc Barta, happened when the bus left the hotel for the first leg of the eliminatory tie between the two parties. The match was postponed until the next day and Dortmund lost the tie. His coach at the time, Thomas Tuchel, now in charge of Paris Saint-Germain, and several players have spoken of the traumatic aftermath of that day.

“It’s a tough game with strong opponents, especially Atlético, who provide a very experienced and well-organized team, and also Monaco that eliminated Manchester City [in 2016-17] and only came out in the semifinals,” said the boss. of the BVB, Lucien. Favre

The general director of the club, Hans-Joachim Watzke, was not very satisfied with the result of Thursday’s draw in Monaco. “I’m not very happy, this is a difficult group, Atlético is a superior team, and those games will be massive.”

The most important selection of Bayern Munich isolated them from most of the big names and, in spite of the presence of the four winners, Ajax and the Portuguese runners-up of Benfica, they should not have problems to escape from group E. The last Team next to the German champion was the AEK Athens.

Niko Kovac’s coaching debut in the competition will arrive on September 19, and the list of matches has yet to be decided. The final will be at the Wanda Metropolitan Stadium of the Atletico on June 1.

UEFA Champions League

Domenico Tedesco’s Schalke is rewarded for his second place in the Bundesliga with a group as friendly as he could have expected. The Royal Blues were placed with the best Lokomotiv Moscow seeds, which include the former Schalke captain Benedikt Höwedes, the 2004 winner Porto and the Turkish champion Galatasray.

While trips to Moscow and particularly to Istanbul are discouraging, as third-seeded, Schalke could have expected much worse on his return to the best table in Europe.

Germany’s last representative team, Hoffenheim, has a lot of work to do to escape Group F in their first Champions League campaign: they were eliminated in qualifying last season.

His rising star of a trainer, Julian Nagelsmann, will put his wits against Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City coach widely recognized as one of the best bosses in the world. With the English champions on a different financial plane, the Hoffenheim’s success will probably depend on their results against the Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk and the French side Lyon.

In addition to the four German teams in the draw, all eyes will be on the clash of former Dortmund leaders in Group C, with Tuchel’s PSG tied with Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

The draw for the Champions League has finally arrived and it’s gone. The presenters take so long to overcome the prizes and the trivia that sometimes it seems that the draw will never take place.

But it has! And Dortmund will play in what is a manageable group.

On Thursday night, the BVB was involved in Group A with Atlético de Madrid, AS Monaco and Club Brugge.

PSV Eindhoven vs Inter Milan | Live™ Stream, Start Time, TV

Although there is a long list of young and talented Mexican players that many can name, there is something different about the 23-year-old midfielder. Unlike other budding stars, Gutierrez has a remarkable amount of reliability, leadership and maturity for a player of his age; it moves with the ease and confidence of an experienced veteran. With such characteristics, it was no surprise on Wednesday when PSV Eindhoven announced that the club was ready to sign Pachuca’s captain.

In any case, many within the Mexican football community wondered why it had taken so long.

Since making his league debut in October 2013, Gutiérrez has quickly established himself as one of the most intriguing prospects in Liga MX. Blessed with a well-balanced playing style and an eye for precise distribution, a move to Europe seemed imminent. And yet, once the start of the 2018 Apertura went around, Gutiérrez found himself still wearing a Pachuca shirt.

Granted, he had a key role as a young captain, but it remained clear in recent weeks that the player had already passed the league. Perhaps inspired to showcase his skills before the end of the transfer window, Gutierrez took a step forward with some of his best performances for Los Tuzos in his last three Liga MX games. Not only did he find the back of the net twice in this race, but he also found a return to the Mexican national team when the last call of the roster was announced on Wednesday.

Shortly after El Tri’s announcement, the news about PSV arrived, delivered by his close friend and former Pachuca’s colleague Hirving Lozano. Immediately after qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stage, and therefore given more space to spend some money, the Dutch club quickly made the move to incorporate another Mexican into their roster.

Although it is tempting now to think about how Lozano can help Gutiérrez’s career abroad, it may be more appropriate to change these roles when looking at his past.

In his early days in Pachuca, Gutierrez was known for defending Lozano when the player argued with his teammates and staff. Eventually, the two developed a strong friendship since each one found a place within the upper Pachuca squadron. While Lozano was more a free end for Los Tuzos, Gutierrez was more a quiet presence in midfield that regularly provided smart passes in the future.

Considering that Lozano has already had a brilliant start to his season with PSV, it is tempting to think how effective the winger will be with Gutierrez as support. The newcomer may take some time to adjust, but the former Pachuca captain is expected to find a key role in the heart of the XI head of his new club.

Fortunately for the midfielder, the jump from Liga MX to the Eredivisie is manageable, instead of trying to find a place within a great European team in England or Spain. Gutiérrez should not have too many problems with his transition to PSV. Assuming he maintains his form, it would not be very surprising if the player soon gets the same kind of reverence that Lozano has accumulated abroad.

With the Eredivisie games aside, Gutiérrez (and Lozano) will also have a daunting but tempting opportunity once the Champions League group stage starts in mid-September. After the draw on Thursday, the two Mexicans will be forced to face the gigantic task of facing the European giants Barcelona, ​​Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan in Group B. A real test of fire for the budding talents of Pachuca . In the biggest stadium of club football, the opportunity to make a name will be invaluable to the two players who are a vital part of the future of the Mexican team.

As for Gutiérrez, the mature and balanced midfielder will finally have his long-awaited opportunity to shine in Europe. Whether in a high-level clash of the Champions League or an Eredivisie game over the weekend, you must prove to be a fascinating talent to follow.
