Canelo vs GGG; Judge Temporarily sidelined

One judge’s highly controversial score marred the action packed middleweight showdown between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin that ended in a split draw. And that judge has now been temporarily taken down from major fights.

Adalaide Byrd provided a scorecard of 118-110 for Canelo Alvarez, which was way off in comparison to the 114-114 from Don Trella and the 115-113 scorecard in favor of Golovkin from Dave Moretti. Byrd’s scorecard sent boxing pundits and social media into a rage with accusations flying about boxing officials being corrupt. The disapproval came from all angles as even Canelo’s promoter Oscar De La Hoya took issue with the wide margin that Byrd scored the fight in favor of Canelo.

Bob Bennett, the executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, became a focal point of Saturday night’s post-fight press conference and was taken to task over the selection of Byrd, who has had a history of polemic scores in both MMA and boxing.

There is no timeline on how long Byrd will be away from judging. However, a similar situation took place in 2013 when C.J. Ross retired after producing heavily critiqued scores in both the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley fight as well as the Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez fights. Ross retired shortly after those fights.

Bayern Munich Today`s News

Last Sunday surprisingly got defeated by Hoffenheim and immediately changed their tactics and mindset to win over Anderlecht in Champions League and today’s win over Mainz with a shinning performance of the typic scorer Lewandowski who has made 156 goals in 230 games played. It was Robben`s return party after being injured scoring two goals in only twelve minutes. The first goal game by a shot of Muller that slightly touched his knee and that other one came after the goalie left the ball close to Robben`s legs.

James Rodriguez from Colombia didn`t play but was in the bench but Arturo Vidal was in the official lineup and got replaced by Sebastian Ruddy. Bayern`s third goals was a shocking ball transition from defense to attach, it probably reached the rivals area in just seconds. Lewandoski as a top world scorer didn’t doubt on stretch and pushed the ball in. Amazing goal! Great input of Kimmich who ran all the left side, coming and going, sending great offensive passes and becoming a top performer.   Again Lewandoski pitched the ball for the fourth goal by a tremendous assistant of Robben. Another player who is out of questions is Thiago Alcantara. Solid and firm. Is very hard to pass it through. At the end, Bayern built 10 occasions to goal, perfect reason to Bayern in second on the board with nine goals in four games. And probably, Ancelotti is thinking on their next game of Champions League against Paris Saint Germain. A top notch game for Wednesday September 27th who will involve Neymar, Cavani and Di Maria against the current german champions. Next game on the domestic tournament will be Tuesday 19th against Schalke 04 who is third on the board with the same amount of numbers. Then, three days after, will play against Wolfsburg.

Another player who is closing all chances of goal to the rivals is Ter Stegen. In the game of Juventus imposed his determination. And for this game, stopped several chances including a prodigious shot of Arambarri and from that play, Paulinho finally scored. Confidence and safe for Ter Stegen. Bad news though for Barcelona, Dembelé got injured on his left leg in his first game being in the official lineup. After that, the team got so messy and confused. It was a very poor first half for Barcelona with Umtiti`s offensive play as the most dangerous and which Guaita cleared off with high quality. At the end, Barcelona took the three points but didn’t shine as always. They keep their first position with four straight wins and twelve points. Next Tuesday will play against Eibar and Saturday 23th against Girona. For Champions League, Wednesday 27th against Sporting Lisboa. Stay tune and bet on Barcelona for all these games.

Manchester City`s Today News

With the argentinean input of Sergio Agüero and Nicolas Otamendi, Manchester City smashed Watford on their visit to Vicarage Road for a overwhelming score of six cero. In just ten minutes City resolved the game with two goals of argentinean striker Agüero and served an assistant to Gabriel Jesus. Belgium De Bruyne served Agüero for the first goal, the second one came with a lost ball from a play of Gabriel Jesus and Silva which finally ended by Agüero. Third by the assistant of Agüero. Otamendi added one more with a close range header and finally, Agüero completed his hat trick. The six goal was made by Sterling who was grateful with Agüero for a penalty. Pep made one single modification to the successful lineup which played against Dutch Champions during the week. They sent Sterling instead of Bernardo Silva. As per the Guardian: “Watford were inferior, no doubt about that, but never submissive. They rebelled quite strongly at the start of the second half and even had Ederson in the City goal worried for a moment, André Carrillo cracking a fine volley a couple of yards wide from the right-hand corner of the box.”

Agüero got his six hat trick on Premier League. His powerful skill as a striker is obvious, however, Sampaoli still choosing Icardi on the official lineup for Argentina. Now is when he needs to push hard since they are two games away of the World Cup and still needing points to consolidate classification. Agüero in the recent years has been very away of his offensive skills with the national team. They will be playing against Peru at La Bombonera in a decisive game. Certainly, this hat trick works as a good motivation. Manchester City is the leader of Premier League’s board and will play with Crystal Palace for the next game.

For the forgotten game against Kansas City Chief, the only thing to say is that Brady got the worst number among all NFL quarterbacks. He threw 36 passes and only got 16 completed. Now he has the chance of comeback when visiting New Orleans next sunday knowing that Saints also failed on their first game against Minnesota Vikings. Following the comparison in yards, New England made 374 yards on their first game and Saints 344. So both are on special needs to overcome this ridiculous start. Brees made 291 yards and Brady 267. Both lost and both made a very bad game. Take the over for this game no matter the number.

Mourinho also talked to the press and explained that they have a lot of players that can replace Pogba for a while. Players as Michael Carrick, Nemanja Matic, Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera can replace the player. On that game, the team decided that Pogba was going to be the captain, but he had to give away the captain’s armband when he was forced to leave the field. He was replaced immediately by Fellaini. The club wished the player a soon recovery via their Twitter account. After Pogba left the field, Marouane Fellaini made the first goal for the Devils. He just played 15 minutes before opening the score for the team. Fellaini was a fundamental piece for the win, as he had a very strong performance who lead the team to victory.

In September, Manchester will have to play 5 more games. They will play against the Everton on Sunday, then against the Burton Albion, followed by CSKA Moscow and Southampton. They finished the month playing against Crystal Palace. The game will have to solve their problems and win all the matches without Pogba. They will have an empty place in the midfield that needs to be fulfilled. The teams is expected to fill the gap with Henrikh Mkhitaryan or  Ander Herrera.

Rashford, The Silent One of the New Promises

 

He is discreet, Mourinho trusts him, and he has the talent. Marcus Rashford, along with Marco Asensio, Paulo Dybala,Paul Pogba, Dembele, among other players; are the so called big promises of the future of this beloved sport. But one of the big differences between these fantastic soccer players is that the most of them are already big and important names on their squads.

However, Rashford, the new Manchester wonder kid, has been having more like a low profile role in this team that invested quite important amounts of money on key players that fits Mourinho’s game style. This doesn’t’ mean that his role and game when given minutes, (which lately has been quite a few), is less visible or important.

The complete opposite, he takes the most of the minutes that he is given, and just like another rising superstar, Marco Asensio, Marcus Rashford has an impressive record, goal on each competition he debuts with the Manchester squad. Today was the latest chapter written on this 19-year-old youngster, on his first Champions League game and coming as a substitute he scored after a nice pass from another substitute, Fellaini; just as he scored in his first appearances in the Europa League, Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup and his international debuts at senior and Under-21s level.

The arrival of big players, like Romelu Lukaku this summer, Paul Pogba last season, doesn’t seem to intimidate the young forward. He has a bright future ahead and needs to be patient, it seems that he has his manager on his side, Mourinho, which is very important; if he continues with good health, humble, patient, and listening and learning from the veterans stars he has next to him, (remember that Ibra renewed another year with the devils), I’m sure sooner that we expect his role in this team can be quite important.
