Juventus-FC Barcelona 19 minutes ago

Juventus will be at the kick-off against FC Barcelona in an hour with a stripped-down selection.

Trainer Andrea Pirlo cannot have access to the injured Matthijs de Ligt and Giorgio Chiellini and Cristiano Ronaldo, who is still infected with the corona virus.

As a result, twenty-year-old Dejan Kulusevski, among others, gets a basic place for the squatter in Turin.

Juventus line-up: 


Cuadrado, Demiral, Bonucci, Danilo;

Kulusevski, Bentancur, Rabiot, Chiesa;

Dybala, Morata.

Manchester United-RB Leipzig 25 minutes ago

The Orange-international, who recently got little playing time under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is set up as a shadow striker in a 4-4-2 formation.

He forms the midfield with Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Fred.

Manchester United line-up: 

De Gea;

Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw;

Matic, Fred, Pogba, Van de Beek;

Juventus-FC Barcelona 41 minutes ago

Krasnodar-Chelsea one hour ago

37 'GOAL Chelsea!


Hakim Ziyech plays Kai Havertz hard, after which the German sends Callum Hudson-Odoi away.

The Englishman finishes rather poorly, but sees goalkeeper Safonov blunder.

an hour ago

Krasnodar-Chelsea one hour ago

Of the quartet in attack from Chelsea (Hudson-Odoi, Havertz, Werner and Ziyech), the Moroccan is by far the most active player in the first half hour.

Krasnodar-Chelsea one hour ago

Jorginho's missed penalty is the first Chelsea miss on Russian territory from 11 meters, since Nicolas Anelka saw his penalty turned by Edwin van der Sar in the penalty series of the 2008 Champions League final. This save ensured that Manchester United took off with 'the cup with the big ears'.

Krasnodar-Chelsea one hour ago

19 'Now it is the home team that creates danger!

Tonny Vilhena can launch from about 18 meters and sees the ball almost fall into the goal via a Chelsea defender.

Juventus-FC Barcelona one hour ago

Another two hours until the start of tonight's squatter in the Champions League: Juventus-FC Barcelona.

Cristiano Ronaldo is missing at Juventus, who probably has not been able to take a negative test after a corona infection in the past 24 hours.

And so a battle between the perennial rivals between Ronaldo and Lionel Messi stays out tonight.

Krasnodar-Chelsea one hour ago

14 'Penalty missed! 

Chelsea forgets to make it easy for herself.

Jorginho shoots the ball on the inside of the post, after which the ball almost goes over the line via the back of goalkeeper Safonov.

The Russian can breathe a sigh of relief, because he sees the ball roll away from the goal.

Krasnodar-Chelsea one hour ago

13 'Penalty Chelsea!

9 'Hakim Ziyech shows himself immediately!

The former Ajax player dribbles into the penalty area, after which he shoots with his right leg into the short corner.

Champions League one hour ago


The four teams have warmed up, so the ball rolls in both Istanbul and Krasnodar.

Krasnodar-Chelsea 2 hours ago

Krasnodar plays a Champions League match in-house for the first time in history today.

The figures are not promising for the Russians, because none of the last twelve newcomers to the million ball won their first home game against an English opponent.

The last team to win their first Champions League home match against an England side was VfB Stuttgart against Manchester United (2-1) on October 1, 2003.

Krasnodar-Chelsea 2 hours ago

Juventus without Ronaldo against Barcelona

Tonight we will definitely not get Cristiano Ronaldo versus Lionel Messi.

The Portuguese superstar, who recently tested positive, had had to test negative in the past 24 hours to compete.

That did not happen, and so he is not in the selection of Juventus.

The team from Turin will receive FC Barcelona from Ronald Koeman tonight.
