Champions League: Bellingham talent prompts Sevilla to fire Lopetegui

Borussia Dortmund qualified for the Round of 16 after beating Sevilla 4-1 in Group G of the Champions League on Wednesday. He did this by scoring three goals in the first half. Later, Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui was fired, and according to sources in Spain, Argentina’s Jorge Sampaoli was reportedly a candidate to replace him.

Rafael Guerrero became the youngest captain to score in a Champions League game as he bowled the German side with a strong strike before slamming a goal into the far corner following a brilliant run by 19-year-old Jude Bellingham in the box. The young midfielder, who plays for England, is also the first player to score in three consecutive Champions League matches.

Haaland has now surpassed all other scorers in the EPL and Champions League this season, and he is showing no signs of stopping.

None of their most recent goals required much technical expertise, but they all displayed a remarkable ability to read the game and find opportunities.

Grealish commented following a goal from FC Copenhagen goalkeeper Kamil Grabara, commenting that the display of form is so excellent that even the opposition admits to being amazed.

Grealish declared: “He’s not human, the keeper told me. I said, “You’re telling me?”

“He’s so amazing and it’s fun to play with. He’s amazing everywhere because he’s so humble.

“Perhaps he can assume this shape and ignite us to glory.”

For the 12th time in his Champions League history, Messi assisted Neymar in an amazing effort to defeat Benfica goalkeeper Odysseus Vlachodimos from 20 yards. In the last 10 years, no player has hit a boundary more times without comparison.

The 35-year-old is on a six-game scoring streak for club and country, his biggest run in front of the target since the 2018-19 season as if his talent was already without question. With 127 goals in the Champions League, he is well ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo’s tournament record of 141 goals and is back in his greatest form.

Since the league’s start in 1992–1993, Messi has scored for over 40% of the teams currently participating in the UEFA Champions League.

Arsenal, who have scored more goals than any other side, have felt their fury more than any other club. In six European games versus the Gunners, he has scored nine goals, including four in a game in 2010. This spectacular single-opponent streak averages a goal every 59 minutes, and 40 seconds.

When Messi scored five goals in a match against the struggling Germans to give Barcelona a 7–1 victory in March 2012, Bayer Leverkusen suffered their biggest single-game defeat of all time.
