The draw for this stage set the path to decision. Whoever takes the best in this duel will face the winner of the dispute involving Liverpool vs. Porto.The setting criteria are the same as in the previous steps. Those who add the most points advance. In case of equality, the tiebreaker criteria are, first, goal balance and then goals scored at the rival’s home. If they are insufficient, a 30-minute extension will be held, in which the goal away from home is also worth more. The last resort is the penalty shootout.
Wolves’ participation in the English Cup semi-finals helped prepare Manchester United in the Champions League. The match between them for the thirty-third round of the English Championship was anticipated for April 2. In this way, the Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a week to prepare the team.Important period to correct the errors presented in the three defeats that the team suffered in the last four matches. Two of them went to Wolves, both by 2 to 1. One by the FA Cup, another by the Premier League, where the dispute for a place in the G4 ended up getting complicated. Standing at 61 points (18 wins, seven draws and seven losses) United, who had managed to reach fourth place, dropped to sixth place.In addition, the medical department has gained time to work on the recovery of defenders Eric Bailly, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia; midfielder Ander Herrera; and strikers Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sanchez in an attempt to give Solskjaer more options as german website extratips.de confirms !
Barcelona did not have that privilege. He needed to put his best team on the pitch on Saturday, April 6, to face Atletico Madrid, runner-up of the Spanish Championship. It won the classic by 2 to 0 and practically secured the title of the edition 2018/2019 of LaLiga. He reached 73 points (22 points, seven draws and two losses), opening 11 points ahead of Atletico. With seven games remaining, the situation is practically irreversible.The difficulties encountered for the achievement of the three points were much greater than they should have. That’s because the visitors were at a numerical disadvantage in the 28th minute of the first half. The temperamental attacker Diego Costa was expelled for offending the judge by facilitating the life of Barcelona, who did not know how to tactically exploit this condition. It was only to reach his first goal thanks to the talent of Luis Suárez, who fired a precise shot that even the great goalkeeper Oblak could not hold. Then Messi just completed the scoring when Atletico already had their defensive system dismantled.There is the possibility that French striker Ousmane Dembélé, who has been out since March when Barcelona beat Lyon 5-1 in the return leg of the Champions League eighth-finals for muscle injury, is set free to meet Wednesday. However, even if that happens, it is most likely to be related to the reservation bank. Also in the medical department are Brazilian midfielder Rafinha and Belgian defender Thomas Vermaelen.
