⚽ The away goals rule will be removed from all UEFA club competitions from the 2021/22 season.

Ties in which the two teams score the same number of goals over the two legs will now have two 15-minute periods of extra time, and, if required, penalty kicks.

Statistics since the mid-1970s show a clear trend of continuous reduction in the gap between the number of home-away wins (from 61%-19% to 47%-30%) and the average number of goals per match scored at home-away (from 2.02-0.95 to 1.58-1.15) in men’s competitions.
Since 2009/10, the average goals per game have remained very steady in the #UWCL with the overall average of 1.92 for home teams and 1.6 for away teams.

THREAD: Ryan Gravenberch gets the start today for the Oranje. The 19-year-old Ajax phenom and smarterscout young prospect had an amazing breakout season. Apart from aerials in open play, there's not a bad number on here. Stats at a #UCL standard: 🔥🙇‍♂️🚀

Gravenberch operated mostly on the left for Ajax, and we'll expect to see him working there in a two again today. He's got a wide range of passes but is a storming dribbler up the left channel. He takes corners from both sides, too. Multitalented, you might say...

Oh, and Gravenberch can score from outside the box in open play, too. He's 19 years old, people.

🧵Short Thread

On the rise of the 3-4-3, describing the benefits of the system, which has seen some success under Tuchel at Chelsea and R. Martinez with Belgium.
From the 4-4-2, to 4-3-3 and to the 4-2-3-1, we are now seeing more and more teams utilize a 3-back system, particularly the 3-4-3, or sometimes referred to as the 3-box-3. Tuchel´s Chelsea have just recently won the #UCL while almost exclusively using this system.
Some managers choose to use a 4-3-3 (single pivot) in order to prioritise passing angles & triangles in possession. This shape is one of the most natural when it comes to creating a fluid system with these desired attributes, & progressing play from the backline to the midfield.

Manchester United needs to start the season better to properly challenge for the title: A Thread ( No Visualisations). Thanks to @jaseziv's wonderful #worldfootballR package that made this analysis a lot easier than I originally thought
#mufc secured back-to-back seasons of #UCL football for the first time since Sir Alex retired. Not just that, we also did this with a game left. However, once again, #mufc did not have a good start to the season which has been a recurring theme in recent years.
Most discussions around what United needs to do to win the title involve answers like a good transfer window, buying so and so players, etc. All that is there but if #mufc are to really win/challenge for the title we need to have a good-to-excellent start to the season.

⚽ [HILO GIRONDINS 22/23] ⚽
Recopilación de resultados, fichajes, goles y anécdotas de nuestra tercera temporada en el Girondins ⤵️
Tras una grandisima temporada en la que logramos el segundo puesto en Liga y la consecución de la segunda Copa consecutiva, además de llegar a 1/8 en #UCL, el reto este año será mantenerse e intentar mejorar los resultados.
El primer fichaje lo cerramos antes del verano, pero lo anunciamos ahora. Nuestra idea era renovar el lateral derecho con un jugador polivalente y con proyección, y Pembelé fue el escogido. Bienvenido, Timothée. Image

Luca Lucci, membro da Curva Sud, publicou ontem uma nota em nome da organizada para o Donnarumma: "Finalmente voltamos à #UCL, finalmente voltamos a ver uma mentalidade à altura do Milan, finalmente vemos uma diretoria que toma decisões corajosas, finalmente você vai sair!"
"Porque para o bem do Milan, perdoamos você mais de uma vez porque sempre demos uma segunda chance àqueles que vestem a nossa camisa, principalmente se você é um menino mal aconselhado."
"Mas na vida você cresce e amadurece quando toma certas decisões, às vezes com o coração, às vezes com a razão. Você se torna um homem quando deixa que os outros tomem as decisões por você!"

Maldini: "Acho que ninguém pode discutir o mérito dessa conquista, que obtivemos sofrendo e sempre acreditando. Somos o time mais jovem da Itália, muitos têm só 20-21 anos, e no futebol há pouca paciência, mas víamos algo de especial mesmo quando as coisas não davam certo." Image
"Não posso negar que houveram momentos muito difíceis, superados com o comportamento e comunicação, mas não nos arrependemos de nada que fizemos e felizmente fomos recompensados."
"Os proprietários nos pediram para reduzir a folha salarial e tivemos que ser criativos nisso. Mas nunca nos faltou apoio e nem à comissão técnica e aos jogadores. Essa mentalidade de não criar desculpas quando as coisas não iam bem talvez tenha sido o nosso segredo."

🇪🇺 #EuropeanSuperLeague

Using my #data analysis tools, I tried to measure what role Twitter played in this failure:

Without this network, would the closed league project, led by the 12 richest clubs in Europe, have had the same fate?

To analyze what happened and answer this question, I extracted a large amount of data:

2.6 million tweets posted by 876,000 unique users
5 targeted languages : 🇫🇷 🇬🇧 🇪🇦 🇮🇹 🇩🇪
56 million likes and 7.8 million retweets
The tweets collected start from April 17th at noon to April 22nd at midnight.

I'm going to go back over the facts chronologically so that we can relive this story from the Twitter standpoint.

First of all, here is the distribution of the tweets I collected on the period:

Riyad Mahrez and N'Golo Kante's journeys have been incredible ✨

▪️ Born a month apart in Paris
▪️ Didn't play in the top division of a league until aged 23
▪️ Became two of history's greatest transfer bargains at Leicester City
▪️ They were key men in the 5000-1 Premier League title win
▪️ They were sold by the club for huge profits
▪️ They both carried on winning trophies for club and country

#Navas will be fuming with his part in the goal!

His footwork is incredible & he does amazingly to get himself all the way across goal & into position but then he jumps into the spread rather than trusting his reactions!

Meaning a low central finish beats him!

It’s not a mistake as it was so difficult for #Navas to get across goal but given #Navas’ awesome footwork he will be gutted he didn’t trust himself as I’m sure if he didn’t jump into a premeditated barrier he could’ve made the save with his foot & it would still be 0-0

This goal highlights how hard goalkeeping is!

To make certain big saves not only do you need exceptional physical skills (speed & agility) & exceptional technical skills (foot work & efficient movement patterns) but you also need exceptional decision making skills!

And as usual, here's my look at the most promising #UCLFantasy options ahead of the 1/2 finals!

⚽️ Goalkeepers
There are only 4 starters left at this stage, with Chelsea's 🇸🇳 Mendy being the cheapest one for €5.5m, so I would most likely just go with him.

⚽️ Defenders

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Chelsea defenders - Azpilicueta, Chilwell (€5.4m each) and Rüdiger (€4.9m) are all certain starters.

🇫🇷 Varane €5.8m - The most secure Real defender once Ramos returns.

🇪🇸 Nacho €5.0m - Also an option, but slightly at risk for future matches.

🇵🇹 Dias €5.8m - The nailed on Man City starter. Cancelo (€6.1m) gets rotated regularly while Stones (€5.2m) & Walker (€5.9m) start most games as well.

🇧🇷 Marquinhos (€6.0m) & Kimpembe (€5.4m) are the most secure PSG options.

Rummenigge says Bayern, BVB & PSG were not invited to the Super League: "No, none of us knew about this contract. The SL was set up in a legally & financially professional way - with just one mistake: they underestimated the reaction of the rest of the football family" [BamS]
Rummenigge: "If I had found out something about it before, I would have tried with all my power to prevent the Super League, together with our friends from Dortmund and Paris, among others."
Rummenigge: "FC Bayern is not available for such an event. We all have a clear stance here: You cannot separate yourself from the football family by organizing your own event at the expense of others."

La réponse de @uefa auto-érigée en Gerant du foot humble, le foot pur et traditionnel :
Pas de Fair Play financier pour les clubs du Qatar, Emlrats & du russe.
4MM€ en plus pour les clubs participants à la UCL.
Tout ce dont se plaignait Perez la non rétribution des €€€.
Nouvelle Propagande :
Clubs garants de la CL : City - Psg - Arsenal - Tottenham = 0 trophée à eux 4
Clubs anti football : RM - JUVE - MILAN = 22 trophées à eux 4......
Les méthodes de l’UEFA ont été d’un cynisme de très haut niveau difficile de faire mieux.
Démagogie totale
La réalité est pourtant criante mais y a pas pire sourd que celui qui ne veut pas entendre :
- Khelaifi a été attrapé en flagrant délit de corruption puis a intégré l’Uefa après accord mutuel.
- City à dépassé le fpf puis a été blanchi.
- Le PSG s’est fait attraper pour des

I have never done a thread on Twitter despite this is my 10th year using this platform.

So, here a thread on my two cents about European Super League #ESL
The idea of creating the European Super League is not new. It was already talked about 15 years ago. About 7 years ago, US and Arab tycoons joining in to buy most top clubs in Europe that lead to the fruition of #ESL we heard today.
This should not be a surprise to anyone in the football world and certainly not from UEFA President. With all due respect Sir, you knew the 'snakes' exist but you are too naive to take action. (I don't necessarily think ESL is a bad thing).
