Europa League: Eriksen scores first Inter Milan goal, Ajax lose at Getafe

Manchester United were held 1-1 at Club Brugge and Getafe pulled off a surprise 2-0 home win over last year’s Champions League semi-finalists Ajax in other round-of-32, first-leg ties. Inter were frustrated by more than an hour by their Bulgarian opponents until Eriksen fired a low shot into the net from just outside the penalty area in the 71st minute. Romelu Lukaku sealed the win with a stoppage-time penalty, the Belgian striker’s 22nd goal of the season, after Anicet Andrianantenaina was judged to have handled following a VAR review. United were quickly in trouble in Belgium when Emmanuel Dennis lobbed the ball over Sergio Romero to give Brugge a 15th-minute lead. But Anthony Martial levelled in the 36th minute when he raced through to place a shot past Simon Mignolet. United, with new midfield signing Bruno Fernandes on the bench, struggled to create many chances, although conditions were difficult with heavy rain and a strong wind. Brazilian pair Deyverson and Kenedy scored in each half for Getafe against Ajax. Deyverson finished off a well-worked free kick to celebrate his European debut for the La Liga club with a goal after 38 minutes and Kenedy broke clear to add a second in the last minute. In other matches, Daichi Kamada scored a hat-trick to help Eintracht Frankfurt to a 4-1 win over coach Adi Huetter’s former club RB Salzburg. Viktor Kovalenko scored the winner as Shakhtar Donetsk beat Benfica 2-1 and Sporting defeated Istanbul Basaksehir 3-1. Youssef En-Nesyri equalised as Sevilla rescued a 1-1 draw at Cluj after Ciprian Deac had given the Romanians the lead with a penalty.

2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9 Saturday Matchups: Cloud9 a big betting favorite, Team Liquid fighting for playoff spot

first_imgMORE: Live odds and betting news2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Team SoloMid vs. 100 ThievesTeam SoloMid -157100 Thieves +126There isn’t a more bipolar team in North America than Team SoloMid. When TSM are on, they can beat anyone in the region. They are the only team to deal Cloud9 a loss this season, and they have talented players at every position in their lineup. TSM have been inconsistent, though, and that led to an embarrassing loss against last-place Counter Logic Gaming and being on the wrong end of a sweep against Immortals.While TSM are up and down, they should have the edge over 100 Thieves on Saturday. 100 Thieves are only 8-8 because of some hard-carry performances from top-laner Ssumday, and while mid-laner Ryoma has improved significantly over the course of the split, he is no match for TSM’s Bjergsen. As long as Broken Blade doesn’t get steam rolled in the top lane, TSM should pick up the win.2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Cloud9 vs. Evil GeniusesCloud9 -278Evil Geniuses +212Over the past three weeks, Evil Geniuses have put it all together. They have won five straight games to move into a three-way tie for second place, and their bottom lane has been excellent. After a few hiccups early on, Bang and Zeyzal have formed one of the best bottom-lane duos in the LCS, and that is the primary win condition for EG.No one knows what we’ll see from Cloud9 during the final week of the regular season. They locked up the No. 1 seed three weeks ago, and we saw a standard game and a not-so standard game from them last week. If they are focused and play a standard game, they will likely beat Evil Geniuses, but they are wont to have a little fun since this is the last week of the regular season. I’m guessing we’ll see some off-meta picks from them akin to Kalista top lane, and that makes EG the play at this price.2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Team Liquid vs. FlyQuestTeam Liquid -127FlyQuest -103How the mighty have fallen. Liquid was an odds-on favorite to win the LCS Spring Split before the start of the season after bringing back four of five starters and improving in the jungle with the addition of Broxah. However, they are on the verge of completely missing the playoffs, as they have dealt with complacency throughout the Spring Split. Doublelift has not been as reliable as he usually is in the bottom lane, and Impact is not the rock in the top lane he has been for this team over the past few years.Liquid knocked off FlyQuest in the first meeting between these teams back on Feb. 2, and they should emerge victorious once again with their playoff hopes on the line. FlyQuest are in a bit of disarray with Solo replacing V1per in the top lane last week, and the only player that has consistently played well is mid-laner PowerOfEvil.2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Golden Guardians vs. Counter Logic GamingGolden Guardians -160Counter Logic Gaming +127The Guardians’ slim playoff hopes ride on them going 2-0 in the final week of the regular season. They have not inspired confidence with their play over the past month though, posting a 2-6 record with their only victories coming against Dignitas and Immortals. Their bottom lane has been a mess as they continue to try to play non-supports at support, so CLG have a decent chance of pulling off the upset despite their poor campaign. 2020 LCS Spring Split Week 9: Immortals vs. DignitasImmortals -160Dignitas +127Reuniting Apollo and Hakuho has made Immortals much stronger than when Altec was paired with Hakuho in the bottom lane. Apollo has an 8.2 KDA in six games, and he has become the hard carry for this team. That’s something they’ve needed as the other positions have struggled to make an impact with their play.Dignitas continue to underperform. It’s becoming clear that Huni is no longer the top-lane bully he once was in this region, and the bottom lane has fallen off after some strong performances early in the split. Froggen can be a difference maker if he is allowed to select Orianna, but don’t expect Immortals to leave the champion open. We only know two things headed into the final week of the 2020 LCS Spring Split: Cloud9 is guaranteed to finish as the No. 1 overall seed with a dazzling 15-1 record (though they’re not necessarily a great bet at their current odds), and Counter Logic Gaming will finish at the bottom of the standings with a 3-13 mark. The other eight North American teams have between six and nine wins, so most games this week will have an impact on how the final standings and playoff matchups shake out.The big story this week is whether Team Liquid will qualify for the playoffs. The winners of the past four LCS titles are currently a game behind 100 Thieves and Immortals for the final spot in the Spring Split Playoffs, and they face the top two teams in the LCS this weekend in FlyQuest and Cloud9.last_img read more
