Recap of the Week
Is it just us, or is every title race in Europe really hotting up?
With the change of the seasons, there seems to be a change in the temperature across the best leagues in Europe, as the heat has been turned up on the likes of the Premier League, Bundesliga and more. Here is our recap of the week, including a new home for Tottenham Hotspur and more…
Welcome home, Spurs
It has been a long time coming but, after almost fifty games played at their temporary home of Wembley, Spurs have returned to North London in their brand new stadium.
‘The best stadium in the world,’ according to manager, Mauricio Pochettino, once the hoo-hah of the opening ceremony was done, it was back to business as Tottenham were on a winless run of five games. A 2-0 win later, with the first goal of the era scored by Son Heung-min, and suddenly all is well, as Spurs hopped back above their rivals Arsenal into 3rd place.
City go back to the top
Sticking with the Premier League action, the lead changed yet again at the top of the table.
Man City’s game in hand over Liverpool was finally played out, as they faced the relegation-threatened Cardiff City. It was a professional performance from the champions, as a 2-0 win put them back ahead at the very top. Six games to go!
The football community is behind Moise Kean
Juventus’ 19-year-old forward should be enjoying every moment of this season, breaking into the first-team at the Serie A giants and scoring his first goal for Italy, too.
However, he was the subject of racist abuse this week, following a Serie A match away at Cagliari. Celebrating a goal with arms stretched out, it was his answer to the chanting from the home crowd which has caused news worldwide across football. More shockingly still, Juve’s captain, Leonardo Bonucci, laid the blame partly on his young teammate. He has since apologised for his post-match comments, but compared the rest of the football community, his support for Kean has been weak.
