FIRST LEAGUE GOAL AFTER FORTY YEARS

Antony Martial opened the scoring for Manchester United against Burnley on Sunday afternoon, registering the club’s first Premier League strike at Turf Moor in over 40 Years.

United had scored just once in their last four league games at the stadium, with that goal coming from Lou Macari in April 1976.

Martial, who started the move before playing a neat one-two with Ander Herrera, calmly struck the ball past Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton after 21 minutes.

Spain could not be left in wrapping the weekend football. Barcelona superstar Messi sets another record with 15th El Classico goal in La Liga. This means he is now the leading goal scorer in the Classico after equalising against Real Madrid. The contest was typically controversial  as christiano  “Roro” having a strong early penalty claim turned down, while Barcelona wanted Casemiro’s opener chalked off as they claimed for offside against Ramos in the build-up, a goal that was promptly cancelled out by Messi before half-time.

The Catalans then tried to call for Casemiro to be sent off as he got away with two first-half fouls after being booked, but it was Madrid’s turn to be angry with the officials when Ramos was dismissed. The story was still to be told, though with James’ strike was followed by Messi’s astounding 92nd– minute winner to ensure Spain’s top-flight is for a thrilling conclusion over the final weeks of the season.

Both sides are now level on points with Barca ahead with virtue of goals although Madrid still hold a crucial game in hand.
