Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who left Manchester United, has joined the new club for LA Galaxy, and it is very likely that the Swede will immediately make his debut. What is extraordinary in this derby is the fact that the teams meet for the first time.
The Galaxy is somewhat distant from the town life, and the LAFC is located in the heart of the city. Galaxy is the crown jewel of the MLS, one of the ten clubs that made the league and won the most in this league. LAFC is a “new boy in the city” and plays for the first season in the MLS, writes Soccer24.ee.
Fans are also very motivated, although the derby is based on the usual history, incidents and moments that define the confrontation forever. This confrontation does not have history, incidents or special moments – it’s just the knowledge that this city will no longer automatically belong to Galaxy. “I’m not proud of the Galaxy, I’m not just a Galaxy fan and I’m in favor of the LAFC,” said Rafa Gomez, LA Times.
Also, ticket sales are rivalry: when the LAFC announced that in their July home derby game only 100 tickets will be allocated to the opposing fans – the minimum that can be deducted from the MLS for the opposing fans, the Galaxy replied the same: on Saturday, 100 LAFC fans will be in the stadium. But it does not dampen the audience number – the game has been sold out, and yesterday it was sold at an additional $ 1,000 on the aftermarket.
Mohammad Al-Sahlaw, who scored 26 goals in 33 games in Saudi Arabia, is training for the next three weeks with Manchester United.
Saudi Arabia, which took part in the World Cup this year, met with Belgium in the tie-in period and was brought back 0 to 4 losses, but on the positive side, the chairman of the local sports association GSA announced that 31-year-old Al Sahlaw will join United training for three weeks, Soccernet.ee reports.
For Jose Mourinho, this is probably not a long-term target for the attacker, but a compulsory clause in the deal – namely, the United and the GSA at the start of the season concluded a “strategic partnership agreement” that United will help promote Saudi football.
United is not the only one to help Saudi Arabia prepare for the MM by co-operation agreements – as many as nine players joined the Spanish clubs in January under a loan agreement.
The Estonian men’s soccer team lost to the local team in the land scandal in Georgia at 0: 2. Also, our six-game series of unlucky ones ended.
Georgia was already in the sixth minute when, after a corner kick, Estonians did not clear their penalty area and Jemal Tabidze, the center-right opponent, made the ball in the goal.
At 34 minutes, Vako Qazaišvili sail through the Estonians’ defense line, with a blow to the outside side of the post. Real ghost and stand 2: 0.
In the first half of the year, the only dangerous option in Georgia and Estonia was the midfield half-way, when Igor Morozov got close at the corner kick, but the ball hit the goalie directly.
Ten minutes after the break, the best chance for Estonia’s current game came when Ragnar Klavan hit the goal post.
A little more than a quarter hours before the end, Mattias Käit was hit by the opponent in a collision with the opponent and exchanged for Konstantin Vassilyev. A few minutes later, Estonia had a good chance when Dmitri Kruglov hit the goalkeeper of the Georgians and Trevor Elhi beat the post a little bit.
Morozov from the opening gate: he could have better cleared the ball

Alexander Dmitriyev), Joonas Tamm, Igor Morozov, Ragnar Klavan, Artur Pikk (63 Dmitri Kruglov), Mattias Käit (75th Konstantin Vasiliev), Ilia Antonov (46th Siim Luts) , Brent Lepist (71.

When Estonia played 0: 0 on Armenia on Saturday, Georgia toppled Lithuania 4-0 at home. “The fact that Lithuania lost 0: 4 and lost Latvia last year 0: 5 shows that they are good players to let them enjoy the game,” said Martin Reim, head coach of the Estonian football team, today’s opponents. “We need to take them out of this position and squeeze them into a good defense based on their style of play.”
“We have the thoughts of watching the game in Armenia, which position to play. I did not allow it, but I said that maybe we will play two full-fledged runners,” added Reim.
Estonia has previously met with Georgia five times. Both teams have won twice, once played the wins. Last time Estonia played with Georgia in 2015, when the Georgians were subdued with a score of 3: 0 (gates: Ats Purje, Artur Pikk and Maksim Gussev).
