Friday, April 5, 2024

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ Fernando Morientes turns 48, ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Thomas Hitzlsperger turns 42, ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Yassine Bounou (Morocco) – 33.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Salernitana vs. Sassuolo (italian serie a)
The bottom two teams in Serie A will face off, with Salernitana trailing Sassuolo by 10 points. While hope may seem futile for Salernitana in the relegation battles, Sassuolo remains in a position to maintain optimism. These points are crucial for both clubs to improve their chances, but it’s likely that Sassuolo will make the stronger push for maximum points.


Saturday, April 6, 2024

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Herculez Gomez turns 42, ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ท Nahuel Molina turns 26.

๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ PSV Eindhoven vs. AZ Alkmaar (dutch eredivisie)
Both teams are coming off midweek league games, each experiencing different outcomes. PSV Eindhoven secured a 2-0 victory on Tuesday against Excelsior, rebounding from their first league defeat of the season. Meanwhile, AZ Alkmaar endured a shocking 5-0 loss to Excelsior, a team struggling to gather points to stave off relegation on Wednesday. PSV emerged victorious with a 4-0 win in the previous encounter between the two sides.

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น Sporting CP vs. Benfica (portuguese primeira liga)
Lisbon Derby – It’s a two-horse title race in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. The contenders meet again for the second time in five days. They clashed on Tuesday, resulting in a 2-2 draw which was sufficient for Sporting CP to secure a spot in the Taca de Portugal final with a 4-3 aggregate victory. Another draw would suffice for Sporting CP, as they currently lead the title race by a point and also have a game in hand.
In the reverse fixture, Benfica emerged as 2-1 winners. They require another victory here to climb to the top of the league standings and narrow the advantage Sporting CP holds with their game in hand.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Roma vs. Lazio (italian serie a)
Rome derby : Lazio eliminated Roma from this yearโ€™s Coppa Italia with a 1-0 victory in the quarterfinals, and their previous league encounter resulted in a goalless draw.
Roma recently played to a goalless draw with Lecce in their last league fixture, while Lazio secured a 1-0 win against Juventus. Despite this, Roma currently holds a six-point lead over Lazio in the Serie A standings, with eight more rounds remaining in the season.

๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Borussia Dortmund vs. Stuttgart (german bundesliga)
A victory for Dortmund would narrow the gap between them and Stuttgart to just one point. For Dortmund, winning is also the sole means to secure their league position, unless RB Leipzig fails to secure a win against Freiburg.

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ Athletic Club vs. Mallorca (copa del rey final)
Although Mallorca is the more recent winner of the competition, Athletic Club boasts a significantly superior history of success in the tournament. Athletic Club seeks their 23rd Copa del Rey title, while Mallorca pursues their second.


Sunday, April 7, 2024

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Marco Delvecchio turns 51, ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท Franck Ribรฉry turns 41, ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡พ Martรญn Cรกceres turns 37, ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น William Carvalho turns 32, ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Andries Noppert turns 30.

๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ Manchester United vs. Liverpool (english premier league)
An English classic – Manchester United will host Liverpool for the Premier League point.
The reverse fixture ended in a goalless draw, while their recent meeting in the FA Cup quarter final saw Manchester United emerge victorious with a 4-3 win after extra time.
Liverpool is contending for the league title, making the points in this match vital for their pursuit. Manchester United’s season has been marked by inconsistency, with unpredictability becoming the only consistent aspect. Anything other than a heavy defeat will be considered progress for them.

๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ Feyenoord vs. Ajax (dutch eredivisie)
De Klassieker – The last two Eredivisie champions face off, with Ajax far from being a contender, and Feyenoord struggling to maintain their title defense against the impressive season PSV Eindhoven has had.
Feyenoord were 4-0 winners in Amsterdam in the reverse fixture. It is up to Ajax to respond.


Monday, April 8, 2024

๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ Grzegorz Lato turns 74, ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ Aleksandr Chivadze turns 69, ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท Mazinho turns 58, ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ณ Khaled Badra turns 51, ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ Igor Akinfeev turns 38, ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ Mathew Ryan turns 32.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Udinese vs. Inter Milan (italian serie a)

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ† Athletic Club vs. Mallorca: Copa del Rey Final Showdown

Athletic Club earned their spot in the final through a challenging path, eliminating Barcelona in the quarterfinals and overcoming Atletico Madrid in the two-legged semifinals.
In contrast, Mallorca’s journey to the final was less straightforward. They narrowly edged past Girona in the quarterfinals and survived a penalty shootout against Real Sociedad in the semifinals.
Regardless of their differing paths, both teams have earned their place in the 2024 Copa del Rey final. The ultimate champion will be decided on Saturday.

Although Mallorca is the more recent winner of the competition, Athletic Club boasts a significantly superior history of success in the tournament. Athletic Club seeks their 23rd Copa del Rey title, while Mallorca pursues their second.

FC Barcelona (31), is the only club with more Copa del Rey titles than Athletic Club.

Athletic Club’s history in the Copa del Rey final has been marked by heartbreak in recent years. Their last appearance was in 2021, where they suffered a 4-0 defeat to Barcelona, continuing a streak of consecutive final defeats after losing to Basque rival Real Sociedad the previous year with a score of 1-0.

This upcoming final will be Athletic Club’s third Copa del Rey final in the last five years, yet they have not managed to secure a victory. Their most recent title win dates back to 1984, and despite reaching the final on six occasions since then, they have been unable to claim the trophy. The plan will be to finally end the drought by winning the title in their seventh final since their last Copa del Rey title success.

Mallorca clinched their only Copa del Rey title in 2003, marking their sole triumph in the competition to date. This victory came in their last appearance in the final, where they emerged victorious with a 3-0 win against Recreativo de Huelva. The Copa del Rey triumph in 2003 stands as arguably the most prestigious trophy in Mallorca’s history.

Athletic Club have secured the Spanish Super Cup on three occasions since 1984: in 1985, 2016, and most recently in 2021, but 1984 marked the last successful year in Athletic Club’s history. They achieved a domestic double by clinching both the league title (8th) and the Copa del Rey (23rd).
