Weekend Football Review


Community Shield

Leicester 1 vs. 0 Man City

The Community Shield took place on Saturday night with fans back at Wembley stadium once again. Leicester had a strong lineup with all first team players on display while Bertrand started at left back. Man City and Pep went with a mixed lineup with the likes of Edozie and Palmer starting while the usual players like Gundogan and Fernandinho also started. It was an even game and both sides had several good chances. Grealish came on in the 2nd half for City while Soumare, and Daka also came on for Leicester among others. Leicester won the game in the 89th minute as Daka was brought down by Ake and Iheanacho converted the penalty to seal the trophy for the Foxes. Another trophy for Leicester after the FA Cup win while Man City lose in another final.

Ligue 1

Monaco drew with Nantes 1-1, Lyon drew with Brest 1-1, PSG beat Troyes 1-2 with new man Hakimi scoring the equaliser, and Lille drew with Metz 3-3 in a crazy game. A slow start for most of the teams in the first week. Out of all of PSG’s new signings only Hakimi and Wijnaldum featured. Of course Paris is obsessed with Messi’s arrival at the moment which should seal the league for PSG anyway. Clermont lead the league on goal difference with Angers, Marseille, and PSG making up the top four. Lille sit 5th while Monaco sit 11th and Lyon sit 13th. It’s just the first game but already teams are playing catch up to PSG and this season bar some miracle I don’t see PSG dropping many points especially once a certain Lionel Messi starts playing.
