Lewandowski Becomes Champions League Third Top Scorer

Published

on

Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski, is now the third top scorer of all time in the Champions League.

The Pole pounced on a poor back pass to open scoring in their 4-1 win over Lazio on Tuesday in a last-16 first leg.

In doing so, he surpassed former Real Madrid striker Raul Gonzalez in the competition scoring charts.

Lewandowski is now only behind Cristiano Ronaldo (134) and Lionel Messi (119).

Bayern’s 17-year-old midfielder Jamal Musiala doubled their advantage, making him the youngest English player to score in the competition.

Leroy Sane and a Francesco Acerbi own goal stretched the Bundesliga champions’ advantage early in the second half, before Joaquin Correa pulled one back.

Champions League Final Between Manchester City And Chelsea Moved To New Venue (See Details)

Published

on

 

The Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City will now be played in Portugal after the UK government and UEFA could not reach an agreement over quarantine exemptions for more than 2,000 VIPs, staff, and media for the match to be played at Wembley.

The all-English final between the Premier League clubs was originally scheduled for the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul on May 29, but the devastating Covid outbreak in Turkey forced UEFA to look at alternative venues.

The Wembley stadium in England was considered as one of the possible venues, but the UK government has placed the country on its red list for travel, and banned English fans from going.

According to Sports Mail, the 50,000-capacity Estadio do Dragao in Porto has now been lined up as the venue for the final after UEFA struck a deal with the Portuguese authorities over the attendance at the match.

Chelsea and Manchester City will each receive a ticket allocation of between 4,500 and 6,000, with the announcement to be officially ratified by UEFA on Thursday, the report said.

Before now, health experts and MPs slammed the decision for putting supporters at unnecessary risk in the middle of a pandemic, insisting UEFA should have foregone VIPs this year and made it a ‘fans’ final’ in London instead.
