0-1: Newcastle beat Southampton and reach the final


Five minutes after entering the field, Alexander Isak took the ball on the right wing, beat Duje Caleta-Car with speed and skill, advanced to the end line and delivered to Joelinton 0-1 as Newcastle won the English first leg League semi-final of the Cup. Next Tuesday I will play the second leg at St James’ Park. Before, tomorrow, another Nottingham-Manchester United tie starts.

It was in the 72nd minute that Newcastle and Joelinton could breathe a sigh of relief as the forward had failed all until then, with particular emphasis at the start of the second half when, in all their favor, with goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu defeated, with his shot unopposed two meters from the goal line, he fired over the bar to the disbelief of all his teammates. A huge mistake that he later changed thanks to Isak’s individual action. Definitive.

Until then, Southampton held 0-0, even conceding the goal when they felt better on the field, but, more importantly, when they got closer to the goal, almost back-to-back denied by visiting goalkeeper Nike Pope in twice, nimble to stop Che Adams’ shots in just over a minute. If Newcastle won, it was also because of their goalkeeper.

VAR avoids a tie

And for VAR. If it weren’t for technology, it wouldn’t have gone beyond the tie, as only the video was able to visualize the hand in which Adam Armstrong made the rebound on a defender in the apparent equalizing goal, until the image analysis. found offense and preserved Newcastle’s narrow victory. The battle remains for the ‘magpies’ although they have lost just one of their last twenty games in all competitions.

The threat of the game was made by Djenepo, who was hit by a shot from goalkeeper Pope. Treated on the field of play, conscious at all times, but slightly dazed from the crash, he was immediately replaced by Adam Armstrong at Southampton, who ended up going over the number sent off for a double yellow card in the final moments of the Caleta- Car , between the tension of the last section of the game, where Isak punctuates the sentence.
