Possible own goal? Hamburg have been having a shocker so far, mind!

The header was on target, so the goal should be Brumas.

From a Doncaster forum on Lalkovic:

When he came on today he changed the game completely, (as well as sharp ofc) but he brings energy and pace to the team as well as skill.. I think he should start on tuesday night! thumbs_up.gif

To be sure, those three Palace defenders weren't expecting what he did the first time he got the ball - went between a pair of them like a hot knife through butter.

I'd bench Copps Tuesday and start him, seems a no-brainer.

Good to know.

Only seen the highlights of the Barca/Atletico game, Courtois seemed a bit demoralised and perhaps mesmerised by Messi's runs and couldve maybe done a bit better for goals 4 and 5 but definitely didn't embarrass himself.

Saved the draw apparently, with a last minute save to keep it 1-1. Rennes got 10 shots on target, 1 goal. Sounds quite good, no?

An update on Thibaut Courtois progress at Atlético.

vs FC Barcelona

The big test, well, it didn't quite work out well. Atlético's coach, Gregorio Manzano rested four players in this game and 3/4 of the defence hadn't played together this season. Arda started on the bench as well which didn't make things easier. Barcelona smashed Atlético who just isn't anywhere near their level, especially away from home. The team didn't pressure, didn't play the ball, didn't do anything they were supposed to in this game and that's how it goes when you don't go out and play properly against Barcelona. Courtois was still the best Atlético-player despite conceding five goals, he did make four saves. Unfortunately, we didn't even take this game seriously.

vs Stade Rennais

A tough away game where Atlético were surprised by Rennes high pressing line. Rennes were better in this game and should've won but Atlético managed to find a way in and equalize before the end of it. Courtois didn't really have to make any big saves, despite them having so many shots. They kept missing the target, time after time which ultimately cost them two points. Safe in the air despite the aerial threat the French offered and did when called upon.

vs Sevilla

Didn't have anything to do until the second half started. Atlético were controlling the game and passing it around, creating chances and trying to find openings. Then..all of sudden, Sevilla woke up. They took Atlético on the counter two times in the first 15 minutes of the second half; first through a shot by Navas which was brilliantly saved by Courtois, left footed shot inside the penalty area, then Rakitić blasted the rebound over the goal. Second chance could've easily changed the game as Manu del Moral stole the ball from Mario Suárez on the halfway line and broke through, 1-on-1 with Courtois..Courtois timed the situation perfectly, Manu got a bit of a heavy touch and that's when Courtois stormed out to make a save. Another clean sheet. Apart from that, Atlético should've won this game.
