Champions League catch-up

1 Oct

Sorry ladies, I was feeling a little under the weather so blogging activity was reduced. Here are the rest of the Champions League results for this week. I will post Europa League results tomorrow.

Champions League (Wednesday)

Rubin Kazan 1 (Christian Noboa penalty) – Barcelona 1 (Villa penalty). Barcelona and Rubin were pretty evenly matched for this one. Dani Alves tackled Vitali Kaleshin 30 minutes into the match, and Noboa scored the resulting penalty goal. Thirty minutes later, the tables were turned when David Villa made his penalty shot after Lasha Salukvadze brought down Andrés Iniesta. Very symmetrical. Lionel Messi is back from injury, having replaced Mascherano on the pitch just after Barça’s goal. Barcelona slips to second place in Group D, behind Copenhagen.

Valencia 0 – Man. United 1 (Hernández). Although Valencia have been having a great season and Manchester United have been struggling, the English side managed to pull through with a solid defence and a late goal from Chicharito. Valencia’s own Hernández (Pablo) had the best chance for the home side a few minutes later, but didn’t manage to get the equalizer. Sorry, valencianistas. Better luck tomorrow when Los Che face Athletic Bilbao in La Liga.
