⚽ 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.

#DeGea’s penalty record hasn’t been good recently & while the sample size is too small to conclude he’s bad at them his technique does seem flawed.

Preshot he pulls his foot inward in the opposite direction to his dive meaning he will always struggle to reach the corner!

#UEL ImageImageImageImage
This “negative step” means his footwork actually moves him further from the corner he wants to dive to rather than closer to it!

Therefore using this technique he will always at struggle to get across to penalties which are right in the corner even if he goes the correct way! Image
Ironically #Henderson’s is one of the best GKs I’ve seen at using a strong “positive” step when facing PKs

Look at the ground he makes up preshot!

This means he can dive all the way to the corner & thus if he goes the right way he has a great chance of saving it!

☑️ The #UEFAExCo has approved a new format for club competitions as of the 2024/25 season.

⚽ The reforms come after an extensive consultation across the football family. The changes made are designed to secure the positive future of European football at every level.

UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin: "This new format supports the status and future of the domestic game throughout Europe. It retains the principle that domestic performance should be the key to qualification and reconfirms the principles of solidarity… and open competition." Image
President Čeferin: “This evolved format will still keep alive the dream of any team in Europe to participate in the UEFA Champions League thanks to results obtained on the pitch.

Thread [#SuperLeague]
What it is - 12 European clubs have come together to announce a new competition called the Super League governed by its founding clubs. Arsenal, Atletico, Chelsea, Barca, Inter, Juve, Liverpool, City, United, Madrid and Spurs are the 12 founders
Along with the current 12, 3 more clubs are set to join them as founders making it 15 in all.
How it's going to work - 20 teams (15 founders + qualifying mechanism for 5 teams to qualify annually). Midweek fixtures with clubs playing their domestic leagues
Which is "the heart of the club game". Competition starts in August, 2 groups of 10 each and both home and away fixtures. Top 3 from each group qualify with the 4th and 5th from both groups playing a playoff round for remaining QF positions.

Let me play the devil's advocate here for a second. #SuperLeague

I have already stated that I believe relegation and promotion are essential for any competition. The underdog's success is a story that will always be desirable. So, if you lock in 15 clubs that will never lose their place, the competition losses its charm.
However, if that detail is corrected, then this could be something revolutionary. Like how Europen Cups were started by Santiago Bernabeu's ideology and later became the #ChampionsLeague, as we know today. Or how the #EPL rebranded itself in 1992.

ميكيل أرتيتا من مؤتمره قبل مباراة إياب دور الـ8 ضد سلافيا براغ في الدوري الأوروبي عن فرص أوباميانغ وأوديغارد باللعب :"لا أعرف علينا أن نرى كيف هم اليوم ولذلك سيتعين علينا أن نرى كيف حال الجميع اليوم وبعد التدريب وكيف سيكون رد فعلهم في مباراة الغد."

ميكيل أرتيتا عن سلافيا براغ :"قلنا قبل المباراة أننا انبهرنا حقاً بهم وبما ينقله هذا الفريق والسلوك الحقيقي والرغبة التي يظهرونها في كل مباراة، هذا هو سبب وجودهم هنا لأنهم تغلبوا على بعض الفرق الكبيرة على طول الطريق ويستحقون تماماً التواجد في مكانهم.."
ميكيل أرتيتا :"..أظهروا في مباراة الذهاب ضدنا أنهم لم يستسلموا أبداً وسجلوا في الدقيقة الأخيرة من المباراة، سنخوض معركة حقيقية غداً."

ميكيل أرتيتا عن فرص التأهل لدوري أبطال أوروبا عبر البريميرليغ :"حتى يكون الأمر مستحيلًا حسابياً، عليك أن تقاتل ولا توجد وسيلة أخرى للقيام بذلك، يجب أن نكون واقعيين في ما نحن عليه في الدوري وهذا صعب للغاية، لكن هذا ممكن حسابياً لذا علينا الالتزام بذلك."

Adel Taarabt vs Rangers

#uel #SLBRFC

Superior in everyway to his teammates. Jorge Jesus knows what hes doing. Here is why the top 5 European leagues want to buy him

1. Look at the space he gives himself & the opposition for the 1st goal, have to give him a chance right?
2. One of the best amazing through balls by Adel Taarabt. Simply Fatiesque
3. Look at the opposition, his positioning and manoeuvrability second to none

Filippo #Inzaghi non è solo il sesto miglior marcatore (126 gol) nella storia del #Milan nonché il primo per quanto concerne i gol nelle competizioni internazionali (43), è anche il marcatore più agée ad aver segnato in un match del "tabellone principale" di una competizione
europea con la maglia Rossonera, in un Milan vs. #RealMadrid del novembre 2010 terminanto 2 a 2.

All'epoca SuperPippo aveva 37 anni, 2 mesi e 25 giorni e manteneva quella voglia spasmodica di segnare in qualsiasi modo possibile, immutata rispetto ai suoi esordi,
come se fosse lo stesso ragazzino che il 20 dicembre del 1992 segnò il suo 1° gol da professionista con il Leffe.
E' molto poco plausibile che in tempi brevi ci sia qualcuno che saprà scavalcarlo al sesto posto dei migliori marcatori di sempre o al primo di quelli internazionali.

#AFC welcome 4-time Norwegian champions Molde to the Emirates Stadium on Thursday for Europa League matchday 3. Molde dropped into the #UEL after losing on away goals to Ferencváros in the #UCL play-offs. Molde are coached by former Solskjaer assistant Erling Moe.
In this thread I will analyse their possession play, defensive shape, set-piece performance and their strengths and weaknesses. I have also worked alongside the great @RastafariMoore4 who has provided some brilliant video analysis to further showcase these points. Go follow Marc!
Molde line-up in a 2-3-5 in possession, with one of the full-backs joining the front line and the other staying deep to form a midfield 3. Molde's right-side (usually Hestad + Knudtzon) rotate a lot, making it difficult for defenders to track them and opening up space in behind.

Arsenal face 14-time League of Ireland winners Dundalk in the #UEL group stage tomorrow. Dundalk hired current Head Coach Filippo Giovagnoli on an interim basis in August before giving him the job permanently following Dundalks #UEL play-off win over Faroese side KI. #afc
Dundalk line-up in a 2-3-5 in possession, with their wide CM's pushing into the half-spaces and their wingers keeping the width. They use the presence of the wide CM's to form triangles with the winger and full-back to maximise wide rotations in order to create space for crosses.
Dundalk's DM (likely Chris Shields) holds the centre of the pitch and the full-backs push up with him to cover the half-spaces to provide them with good cover for counter-attacks. They mainly use the centre of the pitch as an in/out area in possession as they look to go wide.
