VIDEO: AFC BOURNEMOUTH 0 – 1 MANCHESTER CITY [PREMIER LEAGUE] HIGHLIGHTS 2018/19

Another injury blow for Kevin De Bruyne gave Riyad Mahrez a chance to impress for Manchester City and he scored decisively at Bournemouth.

Riyad Mahrez scored decisively to sink Bournemouth but Manchester City’s second consecutive 1-0 win in the Premier League came at a cost.

City are back at the top of the table, with Liverpool needing to address a two-point deficit in Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Everton after Mahrez snuck in his 11th goal of the season 10 minutes into the second half at the Vitality Stadium..

Yet the Algeria winger was only on the field because Kevin De Bruyne suffered the latest setback of an injury-ruined season.

Eddie Howe’s hosts remain 12th after a far more robust showing than in their 5-1 loss at Arsenal in midweek, but they offered little attacking threat from their disciplined 5-4-1 setup.

David Silva shot wastefully wide from De Bruyne’s 19th-minute cross, although the Belgium midfielder’s half would end in dejection.

An audacious overhead kick from centre-back Nicolas Otamendi was the next closest City came to finding an opener before the interval – demonstrating how effectively Bournemouth restricted opponents who enjoyed 83 per cent possession in the opening 45 minutes.

The injury woes continued early in the second period for Guardiola, with John Stones lasting 47 minutes on his return before making way for Vincent Kompany and icing his thigh on the bench.

Mahrez eased frustrations of another kind in the away dugout when he drilled a shot under Artur Boruc after Silva worked possession into his path.

Brazil vs Venezuela 3-0 – Highlights Download 13 June 2021 Copa America

A year after the tournament was originally due to take place, the hosts Brazil get the tournament underway as they look to defend their trophy. They won their ninth title in 2019, and are among the favourites to retain it this time around.

Brazil are unbeaten in their last eight matches against Venezuela in all competitions (W5 D3), but two of those draws have been in the Copa America, with both finishing 0-0.

They’ve won each of their last seven games in all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in six of those. Venezuela reached the quarter-finals two years ago before being knocked out by Argentina, but they’ve struggled recently, winning just one of their last six matches (D1 L4).

Argentina vs Chile 1-1 – Highlights Download 13 June 2021 Copa America

Lionel Scaloni leads Argentina into a major tournament for the first time since replacing Jorge Sampaoli after the 2018 World Cup. As ever, the former assistant can call upon the irrepressible Lionel Messi, who will hope this is the year he finally lands his first senior international honour.

It is the fourth consecutive Copa America in which these two nations lock horns. Chile famously prevailed on penalties in the final of the 2015 and 2016 editions, but Argentina won when they faced off in the third-place play-off two years ago.

Messi receives support from Lautaro Martinez and Nicolas Gonzalez, while Nicolas Otamendi anchors the defence and Emiliano Martinez wins just his third cap in goal.
