Rory McIlroy misses Hollywood ending after Adam Scott clinched victory at Genesis Invitational


Rory McIlroy misses Hollywood and ended after the nightmare meant that Adam Scott achieved a two-stroke victory at the Genesis Invitational

  • Rory McIlroy endured a final round of frustration at the Genesis Invitational
  • The newly restored number one in the world could not continue his challenge
  • Adam Scott achieved a two-branch win at the prestigious tournament
  • Tournament host Tiger Woods & hope unraveled after dropping the pace

There was no Hollywood end on Sunday before Rory McIlroy after his first week back as world number one. Just a final lap full of frustration when the prestigious Genesis Invitational went to Adam Scott the Australian with the film star looks good.

The man from the other Holywood tried male to recover from an ugly triple bogey early in his round, but this wasn't a day to catch up on a US Open-hard Riviera course because the greens dried up at the end of a tournament that played under an unbroken blue sky.

A few too many bad swings and some bad luck caused a disappointing 73 for McIlroy, who ended three shots back in a draw for fifth place.

Scott won this title in 2005 when bad weather reduced the tournament to 36 holes. What a contrast this time. The 39-year-old rated Riviera as the best location on the circuit and love was certainly returned when he recovered from an early double bogey to shoot 70 and claim his first win on the PGA Tour in almost four years.

& # 39; This feels great to end the drought in a place as special as this, & # 39; said Scott.

For a game that is played so often in a snail's pace, it is amazing how quickly things can change. During 58 holes spread over four days, nothing changed the perception that McIlroy was on track to celebrate his newly regained number one status with a statement victory. Then, in the time of 20 shocking minutes, he went from tied to the top to fall of the rankings.

All week he had rightly emphasized the dramatic improvement in his course management, only to undo the good work with a desperate strategic mistake in the par four fifth. The only place you can't be after two strokes is along the steep bank at the back of the green, as McIlroy and Scott would show. Neither of them would be on the green after three shots, as the Aussie then made a double bogey.

An even worse fate befell McIlroy, while dropping three times for a triple. You may have to go back to the first hole at the Open in Royal Portrush last July to find the last time he had one of those. A bogey on the sixth, and the Northern Irish had fallen out of the top ten.

It is good that the 30-year-old has an even temperament, because he was certainly tested in the following three holes. On the 7th, his shot looked like it would end close to the flag, but cannonball in the ball from Scott, who had already played.

On the 8th, he took a risky ride through the middle of a tight fairway and ended up in a divot in a part of the landing area where there were hardly any. To complete the picture, his birdie-putt followed two nice shots to the 9th rider. When he missed 8 ft on the 10th for a birdie, the frustration was evident when he hit the flagpole.

By the time he reached the 11th tee, he was back on an even smock, pounding a perfect ride to finally set up a birdie. But he couldn't build on the holes that followed, until he finally dropped a birdie putt while it didn't matter, in the 18th.

Just like in the first round, tournament player Tiger Woods peeked into the opening hole. Unfortunately for him there were 17 other holes last week where he also didn't play anywhere close.

An event that started with a beautiful front nine of 31 shots on Thursday had long been unraveled by the time he completed his work of the week on the same piece on Sunday, as he followed his 76 on Saturday with a 77 to was the last of the 68 players who had made the halfway point of the match.

Needless to say, with seven weeks in defense of his Masters title, a lot of work has to be done on both his worrying stiff back and his playing.

Programme insults and Matej Vydra magic inspire buoyant Burnley to important victory at Southampton 


& # 39; I almost want to find the guy who wrote it and say: & # 39; thank you, you are magical & # 39 ;: Sean Dyche reveals insulting article in Southampton's program, inspired Burnley to win at St Mary & # 39; s

  • Burnley achieved crucial victory in Southampton thanks to the stunner of Matej Vydra
  • Ashley Westwood brought visitors forward before the striker Danny Ings of the saint
  • [Boss [Boss [Boss Dyche revealed side was inspired by disparaging program article

  • The feature focused on players including left back Charlie Taylor and others

When faced with Burnley the last thing you want to do is give them extra motivation.

Unintentionally, Southampton did exactly that with an article in their competition program. Back left Charlie Taylor was a certain target.

& # 39; They were rather contemptuous about Charlie, & # 39; Dyche said. & # 39; His shape must have almost pushed him into thinking on the national side. & # 39;

 Burnley criticized an article in the Southampton competition program defending Charlie Taylor "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= An article in Southampton's competition program criticized Burnley defensively Charlie Taylor

There were also suggestions that Burnley was a long ball team and only after Sheffield United in that playing style. So did Dyche read the article to his players before the game?

& # 39; They had already read it & # 39 ;, he revealed after the 2-1 in a storm-devastated competition devastated by Storm Dennis as a spectacle. .

& # 39; I don't know why programs & # 39; s do that. I love it. I almost want to find the guy who wrote it and say, "Thanks, you're magic." & # 39;

It must be said that none of the Southampton coaching or staff play was responsible for the words – but that didn't matter to Dyche.

He usually spends his time before the game playing Candy Crush. At St Mary he was able to deliver a final ditch message.

& # 39; I said, "Guys, here you go, that's what they think of you" and they were "Oh, right." & # 39;

 Clarets boss Sean Dyche believes this story has inspired his side to win the victory "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Clarets boss Sean Dyche believes this story gave inspiration for his side to the victory of the clinch

And they duly delivered and although Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhuttl clearly has a different football philosophy than Dyche, he admitted: & # 39; Everyone knows how they play, but they do well and they did it to us. It's always nasty to play against, but we knew that. & # 39;

And Danish central defender Jannick Vestergaard saw the defeat as a missed opportunity to further strengthen Southampton's Premier League status, which looks considerably clearer after their spirited response to the 9-0 humiliation at home at Leicester end October

& # 39; It was a good opportunity to return to ways to win & # 39 ;, said Vestergaard.

& # 39; But it was a reminder that if we want to keep winning Premier League games, we have to do better. & # 39;

That was all water from the proverbial duck back to Dyche and his men. They look up instead of down and European football is a legitimate target. However, Dyche is not someone for an exaggerated response to a series of decent results, including three wins and a draw in their last four games.

& # 39; We were doomed for that, & # 39; said Dyche, who adopted the old adopted cliché, a worn & one game at a time & # 39;

 Despite limited possibilities, Matej Vydra has achieved a higher score to score a wonderful winner "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Matej Vydra stepped up to to score a stunning winner

And although Chris Wood has put Ashely Barnes on the injury list, Dyche & # 39; s super-sub Matej Vydra turned out to be the match winner when he got his usual seat on the substitute bank left to replace Wood and scored a spectacular winner.

Dyche has no problem with Vydra's attitude and believes that the goal – with its quality and importance – may give the Czech Republic a huge boost of confidence.

A bizarre opening goal from Ashley Westwood directly from a corner that allowed Danny Ings to go to the near post when he fully expected the ball to go for a goal kick was followed by a period of Southampton domination.

 Dyche supported his former player Danny Ings to earn further recognition from England this summer "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Dyche supported his former player Danny Ings for further recognition this summer Earn England

Ings equalized with a frightening shot from the edge of the area and Jack Stephens hit the bar with a header. Burnley regrouped and Vydra picked up a glorious winner on the hour.

& # 39; As we know, pointed targets sometimes change their mind, & # 39; Dyche said. & # 39; But I think his overall work ethic was good and he will buzz. It will give him a lift as a person because he has buried and buried. & # 39;

Dyche needed James Tarkowski to stand on their orders to keep Ings relatively still after his goal – but perhaps the Saints striker could add to his awarded England cap when he played 35 minutes as a substitute in a 3-0 win against Lithuania in 2015.

& I think Gareth Southgate has shown that he is fairly open to players, so we'll see & # 39 ;, Dyche said. & # 39; He certainly sets a marker with his goals. & # 39;

Eoin Morgan powers England to T20 series victory in South Africa


Eoin Morgan, Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler skip the 1950s to bring England to victory in the T20 series in an exciting final against South Africa in Centurion

  • England beat South Africa with five wickets in an exciting third T20 in Centurion
  • Captain Eoin Morgan hit a 22-ball 57 including seven sixes
  • Tourists were set to 223 to win after the hosts had won the pitch and first hit
  • Jos Buttler (57) and Jonny Bairstow (64) were also running for Morgan & # 39 ; s men

It will certainly be fun to see England's attempt to become the first country to become a double world champion.

Proof of the first two games here, this series seemed to have been arranged on points against South Africa .

But in a show of their muscle strength and power template that they think they can bring them to Twenty20 glory in Australia later this year, they knocked out by claiming a 2-1 win with five balls left.

<p> <noscript> <img id= Eoin Morgan embraces Moeen Ali after England a five-wicket victory over South Africa sealed

In terms of Twenty20, that is a considerable victory, especially when you consider that they hunted 223.

It was their second highest pursuit in T20 history, only enhanced by a new victory over the Proteas at the 2016 World Cup and they were grateful for the amazing late attack of their captain Eoin Morgan for this.

Left-handed Morgan equaled his own record for the fastest 50 of England, with only 21 balls to reach the goal, and contributed seven sixes to help his team save the heavyweight hit ting competition of 15- 13.

The chase escaped from England when Morgan, with 59 needed 25 balls, walled Dale Steyn with a long-off for six.

Ben Stokes also weighed a pair against death after losing three wickets in four overs, threatening to beat England out of the race.

The chase was set up by brilliant half-centuries of Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow, but they fell for improvised blows to leave Morgan to show why he is now perhaps the second most feared batter in the world cricket behind Andre Russell.

South Africa & # 39; s largest T20 score of 241 for six came to England on the same ground just over 10 years ago and then Temba Bavuma and Quinton de Kock were in succession at the start of this decisive match, there seemed to be an upgrade on the map.

Mark Wood maintained an extraordinary statistic, and certainly an unwanted one, when his opening delivery by Quinton de Kock was stamped on the ground for six. His first legitimate balls in the first two games were also dropped over the ropes by the South Africa captain. Not the kind of hat trick a fast bowler strives for.

But there are extenuating circumstances for the ball flying into the stands here on the Highveld, where the air is thinner, and as if he wants to show his treat was nothing personal, Kock then turned his attention to Chis Jordan.

Three sixes in a row – two relaxed from the cushions on either side of a hook to a fine leg – brought the 50-position in just 3.4 overs.

Until that time, he he was the diminutive Bavuma who had dominated the score and reached 2 before the Kock had made double figures, and he remained at the forefront by greeting the introductions of both Adil Rashid and Ben Stokes in the bowling attack by dropping them off for six.

But the mid-inning combination paid off when each took a wicket within the space of four balls to temporarily control the momentum.

It is unusual for a bowler nowadays to write a spell of four in T20 cricket, but Stokes did so after keeping De Kock fired into a slower ball by holding Rassie van der Dussen in the depth. .

In between, Bavuma did not succeed in choosing Adil Rashid & googly with fatal consequences.

With much of wickets in hand, however, South Africa brought the foot back to the floor when Heinrich Klaasen, recalled to his homeland, used his local knowledge well.

Four times he cleared the ropes on the way to a 25-ball 50 and so was Mark Wood & # 39; s concern about Klaasen feeding. The bow hits that he completely lost his radar in a nine-ball over. that costs 23 runs.

England & # 39; s only delay in the field usually coincided with Tom Curran – but it wasn't a day to become a bowler.

Gloucester responded with late attempts by Jake Polledri and Louis Rees-Zammit, but it was not enough to prevent the fourth-placed hosts from suffering a sixth defeat of the campaign.

Exeter started strong and took a 10-minute lead when they rejected a kickable penalty in favor of an offensive line-out and were rewarded when Vermeulen forced his way.

Steenson repented but Chiefs closed the restart to allow the hosts their first period of pressure. It was persistent and Gloucester should have taken something away from it, but they failed to give a simple penalty in favor of a scrum, and the opportunity was lost when the home team was shuffled back.

Farke asks Norwich to use underdog status to replicate shock Man City victory against Liverpool

& # 39; There is always hope. Everything can happen in one match, & said the German.

MARTIN SAMUEL: Yid Army win is a strange sort of victory… call it 1-0 to the schmucks


Nothing that ends up in the public domain Oxford English Dictionary accident. No reporter is in the library like a naughty schoolboy looking up the rude words.

When the OED announces its updates, there is a press release. This statement refers news sources to the good things because the OED also knows how to make the headline.

There is little mile in releasing details of a couscoussier – & a steamboat used to cook couscous, consisting of two interlocking pots, the upper with the couscous and a lid and a perforated bottom & # 39; or a danfo – & # 39; a yellow minibus that carries passengers for a fare as part of an informal transportation system in Lagos, the largest city in Nigeria . & # 39;

 The Oxford English Dictionary has the definition of the word & # 39; Yid & # 39; extended with Spurs fans "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= The Oxford English Dictionary has the definition of the word & # 39; Yid & # 39; extended to include Spurs fans

No one even writes about the appearance of a w *** spot, as controversial as that can be. They write about Yids.

It is a great year for Jews in the OED . Jewdar, Jewfro, Jew Town, even Jew York are coming. But the OED really hit the jackpot when it redefined Yid.

There are many old Jewish words in the 2020 edition, but the introduction of kvetching – the Jewish word for complaint – or shticky, which means gimmicky, would at best be a footnote in a national newspaper.

Taking Yid from the Jews, however, that is a story. And yes, the OED made all bulletins with their classification.

Yiddo, n.: A Jewish Person. Also in extensive use: a supporter of or player for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. See Yid n. 1, Yid n. 2.

See what they did there? They legitimized it – for everyone. There are no parameters set for use, no manual or rules.

A Yid is a Tottenham fan. So now, when someone announces, or sings in thousands, that they hate the ****** Yids, it is no longer anti-Semitic.

Indeed, if you are a follower of Arsenal or Chelsea or West Ham, Tottenham & rivals in London, who doesn't hate the f ****** Yids? Everyone hates the Yids.

They occur in different versions of the song that starts to hate Nottingham Forest and, depending on your location, include Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Leicester, West Ham United, Leeds, Arsenal – and Tottenham, or Tottenham Hotspur, if you try to do the first or fourth line scan.

And that was all good, to a certain extent. Nowadays there is really too much hatred on soccer fields, but few have such a powerful emotion seriously associated with that specific patio style.

 Spurs fans call themselves & # 39; Yids & # 39; or & # 39; Yiddos & # 39; and often sing & # 39; Yid Army & # 39; during games "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Spurs fans refer to themselves as & # 39; Yids & # 39; or & # 39; Yiddos & # 39; and often chant & # 39; Yid Army & # 39; during games

First of all, who outside the East Midlands really hates Forest? Yet they are there first to be deleted in almost every version of the song. So it was a nephate, a hatred born of rhyme and the necessary scansion – and very different from the hatred known as anti-Semitism, killing millions.

Nevertheless, those lines are now vague and we all have to thank: the cowards, the enablers, those who could have sent a very clear message about the road that was taken in part of North London and chose it not to do this.

The warning came a year ago when Chelsea sat down with the police to discuss the anti-Semitic element within their own fan group.

To their great frustration, Chelsea was informed that law enforcement officers were using the Tottenham song & # 39; Yid Army & # 39; not found offensive, but instead a form of self-identification – little different than Arsenal fans who found themselves & # 39; Gooners & # 39; named & # 39 ;.

In that context, it was explained that every Chelsea supporter who uses the word & # 39; Yid & used against Tottenham fans would be considered to talk about them as followers of Tottenham, not Jews.

Only if a fan would admit that, yes, he was motivated by racial hatred and not by rivalry, would action be taken. At this point – and the development was published, certainly in this column – the Tottenham administration should have made an inventory.

It was clearly the direction that this was now heading, the terrible standardization that was about to take place.

But Tottenham now has 60,000 songs about Yids at home games and that is a significant number to challenge when they need money and support. Much easier to turn a blind eye. There is of course a sense for this type of action. Quite a job.

It was coincidental that Rachel Riley described Tottenham's defeat in West Ham in 2017, causing indignation among many of the same Tottenham fans who see no problems shouting about Yids.

Riley, who is Jewish, did not renew her contract with Sky after making this mild criticism and described the online abuse she received as horrible.

So there was a time when Tottenham could have intervened, when the sirens sounded after the Chelsea meeting and they dived into it.

Now they are upset about how the OED has made their club the gateway to anti-Semitic abuse.

Tottenham issued a statement this week condemning the definition. Too late. It's finished. The club facilitated it, the board facilitated it, all those who lacked the courage to take a position facilitated it.

 Rachel Riley received & # 39; horrible & # 39; abuse of Spurs fans when they joined the team & # 39; bottle jobs & # 39; called "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <img id= Rachel Riley received & # 39; horrible & # 39; Abuse of Spurs fans when she called the team & # 39; bottle jobs & # 39;

Cue many of the same fans who found a contemptuous word from Riley so offensive that it fostered the misleading defense of the recovery.

Tottenham fans call themselves Yids, apparently, in response to anti-Semitism focused on their historic Jewish fan base.

And this would have credibility if the & # 39; Yid Army & # 39; chants were only heard during matches against Chelsea or West Ham, rival clubs whose fans were often found guilty of anti-Semitism during matches against Tottenham.

Yet & # 39; Yid Army & # 39; and various related numbers can be heard at all Tottenham games, regardless of the opposition.

They will be heard next week, against RB Leipzig, just like when Borussia Dortmund was visiting, despite German football a very proactive stance against anti-Semitism and Germany with some of the strictest laws on hate speech in Europe.

So who is recovered "Yid" in an environment where anti-Semitism is absent, but a majority of the Gentiles are not? The only people who then sing about Yids are Tottenham fans.

David Baddiel, the comedian who has been campaigning on this subject for a long time, said that he was told by a supporter of Tottenham: & F 39 off, it is our word now. & # 39;

And according to the OED and even the police, it is that.

& # 39; Jews are not even allowed to possess their own hatred & # 39 ;, said Baddiel, almost leaving.

So they win. The Yid army wins, Daniel Levy wins, the editor of the Jewish Chronicle wins – and is apparently & # 39; proud to be a Yiddo & # 39; but also those who have the f ****** Yids hate.

They also win, because they can say that precisely now, free from arrest and with some of our best scholars and prominent members of the Jewish community on their side.

But a funny kind of victory, isn't it? A zero for the schmucks, you could say. he fell headlong into the biggest management error of the week.

What did he have to make five changes to the Charlton match to focus on Saturday's match against West Brom?

Charlton had won two games since October 19, but somehow held a 24-minute lead to get three points on City Ground. If Forest had won, they would have led Leeds in second place in the championship table.

<p> <noscript> <img id= Sabri Lamouchi's gamble at five making changes to the Charlton match did not bear fruit

That was perhaps a turning point in the campaign, putting further pressure on Leeds and confidently sending Forest a match with the leaders.

Instead, Lamouchi misjudged the moment terribly. He later admitted that he had made a mistake and must hope that there will be no lasting effect from here. He let Leeds off the hook.

IN MARTIAL'S TIME IN NEED, MARTIAL DOES NOT

Steve McClaren came to defend Anthony Martial on Thursday and said he is not a conventional number 9 and Manchester United wrongly expects him to fill in Marcus Rashford.

Yes, but the same certainly applies to Son Heung-min and Harry Kane? But every time Kane is injured, Son takes the play gamely.

He is currently working on a series of four consecutive score games without Kane, and last season 12 of his 20 goals were scored for Tottenham when Kane was injured or out of the field.

It is certainly not too much to ask that Martial adapts in the same way to cover Rashford.

Because his partner is injured, Martial scores once in five games – and that was the fifth goal in a 6-0 win over Tranmere Rovers.

Manchester United failed aimlessly this season, although the pace of Rashford and Martial together should be a test for every defense if used cleverly, but that is no excuse.

McClaren made the valid point that Martial best comes in from the left, but for the money that United paid almost five years ago for his talents, that should not be beyond him changing his role to cover in this emergency situation.

to fill WINTER STAY HAPPEN TO FAIL

English football wanted a winter break? English football could not handle a winter break. We know that much now.

When this gap is over, more than a quarter of the Premier League clubs will be forced to shorten their time under pressure from a squat list of matches

Newcastle, Liverpool, Southampton and Tottenham due to FA Cup repeats, Manchester City and West Ham due to delay of the Premier League.

The winter break was generally welcomed, but although this immovability persists, it is doomed to fail.

The FA has already announced that next year will be no different, with re-play scheduled in the fourth round during the break. So it's display, nothing more.

FA Cup repeats were great, but they have outgrown the modern game. The same applies to the unnecessary extra line-up in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup. Instead of issuing pious edicts, the FA should find ways to adequately compensate clubs in the lower division for curbing repetitions.

Until the schedule is tackled, the winter break is no more than a publicity stunt. ]

WIN SERIES A? SARRI CANNOT PERFORM CHIPPY!

Maurizio Sarri has made employees of the Poste Italiane angry by disparaging the seriousness of their work.

Sarri, whose Juventus team slipped to second place in Serie A, said that if he wanted to avoid pressure, he would have taken a job at the post office & # 39 ;. It is understandable that those who get up in the small hours to sort and deliver mail are upset by these light

It is ironic that many of the jobs quoted for their convenience are incredibly difficult to be. In the past, a failing football manager or board of directors in London was said to be unfamiliar with running a whelk stalls. But running a whelk booth, when such a thing existed in the capital, was difficult.

To begin with, it was fresh produce, which meant that it could not continue overnight. In order for a whelping house to work efficiently, the stable owner should know his trade through and through, just to estimate the stock correctly.

 Maurizio Sarri makes life difficult on Juventus and threatens to let the competition slip "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>
<p> <noscript> <noscript> <noscript> <noscript> <noscript> <img id= Maurizio Sarri makes life on Juventus difficult and is in danger of letting the competition slip away

The same as running a fish and chip shop: another job rotten employees cannot be trusted. They work long hours in chippies, especially if the owner also goes to the market early.

Do you know what sounds easy in comparison? Win the competition at Juventus. Every manager has done it since 2011-12 under Antonio Conte – eight consecutive titles, with an average profit margin of 9.37 points.

Sarri is working hard on it. He also follows Inter on goal difference, despite the fact that Cristiano has Ronaldo in his team.

Now there is really something to be done about it and every postman, whistleblower or owner of a fish and chip shop would agree.

FA GET MOS JUSTICE

Dan Gosling told Jon Moss, the referee, that he was the reason Bournemouth was in the relegation zone. Mos replied with some truths at home and Gosling moaned against the media.

"He was very disrespectful," Gosling said. But respect is a two-way street. If Gosling is like most football players, he will not have shown much for Moss and the official only answered in kind.

For once the FA did the right thing and took no action against Moss. Usually sports managers can't wait to sell their officials along the river (tennis is definitely the worst, as shown by Novak Djokovic's behavior in the Australian Open final), so this was a welcome change.

There is no need for dialogue between players and referees that go beyond clarifying rules, such as rugby. You can imagine that Moss would not have commented on the Bournemouth display unless this was provoked. Gosling wanted a monologue, but couldn't handle the debate. No wonder Bournemouth has a hard time.

Dijon 1-6 PSG: Kylian Mbappe inspires routine victory to reach French Cup semi-finals


Dijon 1-6 PSG: Kylian Mbappe inspires routine while Thiago Silva and Pablo Sarabia come into action to shoot Thomas Tuchel & # 39; s side in the French semi-finals cup

  • Paris Saint-Germany took the lead for 49 seconds thanks to Dijon's own goal
  • Wesley Lautoa turned a Mitchel Bakker cross into his own net for 1-0
  • ] Mounir Chouiar came shortly after he broke and was not closed
  • VAR ruled out an Edinson Cavani attack before Kylian Mbappe scored 2- 1
  • Thiago Silva and Pablo Sarabia added brilliance to the victory in the second half

Paris Saint-Germain took a step closer to claiming revenge on French cup holders Rennes after he had effortlessly pushed Dijon aside to reach the semi-final.

The side of Thomas Tuchel was stunned by Rennes on penalties in the final of last year and wants to set the record straight in 2019-2020.

Kylian Mbappe Thiago Silva and Pablo Sarabia, who ended with a brace, got the decisive goals in a 6-1 victory after Dijon winger Mounir Chouiar had canceled his own goal earlier from teammate Welsey Lautoa.

Rennes defeated ASM Belfort on Tuesday night to reach the final four and the 2019 finalists are on their way to join it again.

The Ligue 1 champions got a perfect start from the cup band when Dijon defender Wesley Lautoa was completely wrong for a left-sided pass by Mitchel Bakker.

Bakker, a 19-year-old Dutch full-back, fizzled in a cross from the left on the left and Lautoa was only able to divert it for 49 seconds in the bottom left corner to put PSG 1-0 up.

And while Dijon is struggling in his own country, 17th in Ligue 1 and 36 points behind PSG leaders, they started with a confidence that fits a superior side and soon brought the game to their visitors on the A- list.

It took 12 minutes after they went behind before they leveled, after they misused a misplaced pass in the transition.

Mounir Chouiar was fast at the interception close to the middle circle and he deliberately walked ahead in the counterattack, with the defense of PSG behind him.

He supported his equity, shot from the edge of the area and buried it along Keylor Navas and in the bottom corner to make it 1-1.

Even with the setback and the clean sheet, PSG remained a favorite with the artillery they had at their disposal. Neymar sat outside the trip, but both Edinson Cavani and Mbappe were busy with the home defense.

It was the former who thought he had restored the visitors' lead when he converted Thomas Meunier's cross from the area.

After running away from the celebration, the strike was double checked by VAR and found the initial lofted pass to Meunier was controlled by the hand of the Belgian. The goal was canceled by referee Benoit Bastien and the game went on.

PSG managed to get himself back through star man Mbappe, the French international who coolly went into the corner after finding space through the ball of Julian Draxler.

 But Mbappe showed why he is one of the best in the world, because he made it 2-1 before half time "class =" blkBorder img-share "/> </div>

It was one-way traffic afterwards, when Thomas Tuchel urged his side to kill the game early in the second half and they duly required it.

Five minutes after the restart, Thiago Silva bowed from a corner and the energy dropped from the hosts when Sarabia shot home a fourth six minutes later and Dijon turned Senou Coulibaly into his own net for a miserable one fifth late.

There was still time for Sarabia, selflessly torn by Mbappe, to get his second in the final seconds to ensure that PSG joined Rennes as the next team in the final four.

Lyon takes over Marseille and Saint-Etienne to SAS Epinal in the other quarterfinals.
