1. Amazing Ronaldo! Whistled at the start of the game by Manchester United supporters, Cristiano Ronaldo made the powder talk by scoring a hat-trick against Norwich (3-2). After leading 2-0 thanks to the Portuguese striker (7th, 32nd), the Red Devils saw Dowell (45th + 1) and Pukki (52nd) find the fault. In the last quarter of an hour, the five-time Ballon d’Or liberated his own with an overpowering free kick (76th). A success that allows MU, 5th, to come back 3 points from Tottenham. Thank you CR7!

2. Liverpool eliminate Manchester City. After their draw (2-2), in the Premier League, Liverpool took the upper hand against Manchester City (3-2) in the FA Cup semi-finals. With a revamped eleven, the Citizens sank in the first period on achievements of Konat (9th) and Man (17th, 45th). Despite goals from Grealish (47th) and Bernardo Silva (90th+1), the English champion did not manage to catch up. In the final, the Reds will challenge the winner of the derby between Chelsea Crystal Palace.

3. Dortmund demolishes Wolfsburg. A week after his success against Stuttgart (2-0), the Ruhr club made only one mouth of Wolfsburg (6-1). Rothe (24′), Witsel (26′), Akanji (28′), Can (35′) and Hland (38′, 54′) scored for the Marsupials while Baku (82′) saved the honor for Wolves late in the game. With this success, the BvB consolidates its 2nd place with a provisional lead of 11 points over their first pursuer, Leverkusen. Towards a freewheeling end of the season for the BvB?

4. Arsenal crumbles… After a spectacular comeback, Arsenal conceded a third consecutive loss on the lawn of Southampton (1-0). Despite a very clear domination, the Gunners never managed to find the fault and cracked on an achievement by Bednarek before the break (44th). While still dreaming of a return to C1, the London club, 6th, has just grilled three jokers but can still go up to Tottenham, 4th, if successful against Chelsea on Wednesday.

5. Tottenham’s bad move. After four consecutive victories, Tottenham were surprised at home by Brighton (0-1). The London club, which remained on 12 goals scored in three games, did not show much and could not hope to win with only 5 shots, including zero on target. More dangerous, the visitors were rewarded at the end of the match thanks to a goal from Trossard (90th). With this setback, the Spurs remain 4th with 3 units more than Manchester United. A real underperformance…

6. Juventus let slip the title. While a tiny hope existed for the title, Juventus made it fly away by conceding a draw against Bologna (1-1). Surprised on a goal from Arnautovic (52nd). the Old Lady, well helped by the exclusions of Soumaoro and Medel at the end of the game, finally equalized after additional time through Vlahovic (90th + 5). A lesser evil for the Bianconeri, 4th, who will have to look behind them now. Shame.

7. Greens still alive.After two beatings suffered against Olympique de Marseille (1-4) and Lorient (6-2), Saint-tienne made a nice move by winning against Brest (2-1). Surprised by the former of the house, Honorat (8th), the Greens were able to count on the return of the banished, Camara, author of a double on two corners of Bouanga (14th, 39th). With this victory, ASSE leaves the relegation zone and is placed in 17th place. To find out more about this match, it’s here!

8. The derby for Lens! In a boiling Northern derby, Lens got the better of Lille (1-2). Well launched by Frankowski (4th), the Sang-et-Or made the break by Kalimuendo (37th). Before the break, Xeka gave hope to the champion of France (45th + 1). In vain since the Mastiffs did not manage to shake up their neighbors in the second period. A big blow for Lens, who won their three derbies against LOSC this season. To find out more about this match, it’s here!
