10/21/2018 05:00 AM Illustrated Poem: A Motivational Message To Real Madrid “One more match is going wrong as our greatness slowly dies This defeat feels like someone is cutting our hopes with knives You’re sitting on the pitch, your hands are raised up to the skies Don’t tell me everything is fine, don’t tell me these dubious lies Because I only want to notice a rebellious fire in your tired eyes Maybe you remember how untouchable we were in those times When we destroyed all the rivals and called it “our petty crimes” We had no fear as if we were poisonous or covered with spines And fought our way right to the throne ignoring the stop signs We played like if we were a squad of soldiers and clever spies And scored unreal goals that were blowing everybody’s minds We didn’t
10/20/2018 05:00 AM Roma Wasteful in Attack, Fall to SPAL 2-0 While the international break afforded Roma some time to heal their wounded without missing actual match action, it was also an abrupt halt in the middle of a four match winning streak, and with a classic trap game awaiting them upon their return, one simply didn’t know what to expect from Roma today.

Roma was breezing past the SPAL defense, with Lorenzo Pellegrini picking up right where he left off, disrupting what little build-up SPAL attempted, then springing Edin Dzeko, Stephan El Shaarawy and Cengiz Ünder on the other end.

10/20/2018 05:00 AM Huddersfield 0, Liverpool 1: Man of the Match Wasn't a pretty game by any stretch of the imagination, but Salah was able to find the back of the net. Shaqiri was bright in his second league start, and Joe Gomez was a standout defender. Now let us know how you saw it.
