The Manchester City vs Tottenham spectacular game
A truly exciting match between two top-tier football teams which began very quietly but the silence was quickly interrupted by an amazing goal from Kevin De Bruyne in the fourth minute of the match. Manchester City manages to take the lead by 1:0, but this is where things started getting pretty interesting.
Upon celebrating, City’s fans were quickly disappointed by an amazing goal from Heung-Min Son who fires an amazing shot from a distance and quickly ties it up in the seventh minute of the match. In the tenth minute of the match there is yet another goal from Tottenham but only one minute after that, Manchester City manages to make it 2:2.
With four goals in just 11 minutes, all of the fans were left breath taken and wondering what’s going to happen next. The next ten minutes were pretty quiet again, but Raheem Sterling from Manchester City manages to fire an amazing shot and take the lead once again. Kevin De Bruyne makes an amazing pass to Sergio Aguero who then smashes the ball inside Tottenham’s goal and makes it 4:2.
Tottenham’s Fernando Llorente is quick to make it 4:3. Now the game is pretty close and a small mistake from both teams can lead to a big change, but all hopes for Tottenham are ruined when Sterling from Manchester City manages to score once again, making it a 5:3. After a short disruption, the referee says that the goal was not valid, so the result goes back to 4:3. From here the game is extremely close but Tottenham doesn’t manage to score a goal, so Manchester City manages to close up the match.

Juventus vs Ajax
This match didn’t have so many goals as the previous two examples, but nobody expected such an exceptional performance from Ajax. The game ended up being 2:1 in favor of Ajax, and Juventus lost their spot in the league. Here’s how the goals were carried out.
Up until the 27th minute the match was pretty quiet, there were some chances for both teams but nothing really special.

Juventus took the lead and their fans were just firing up the stage with songs and chants. Even though the referee was unsure if the goal is legit or not, after checking the VAR everything was claimed to be legit.
This was quite demoralizing for Ajax, but just a couple of minutes later, in the 36th minute to be more exact, Ajax scores an amazing goal. The referee is unsure of the decision once again, but after a quick break, he says that the goal stands. Donny van de Beek is celebrating along with Ajax’s fans who now become even louder than Juventus’s.
Finally, in the 67th minute, Lass Schone passes the ball to Matthijs de Ligt with a beautiful corner shot and Ligt jumps as high as he can and plants the ball into the left side of the goal. Ajax takes the lead with 2:1 and their fans are going crazy. The game ended up with 2:1 in favor of Ajax, and even though Juventus had a chance for a penalty, the judge said that it’s not valid after looking at the VAR in the 90th minute of the game.
