The news even seemed fake, since the club recently agreed on personal terms with the forward. And the transfer of Sergio Aguero only confirmed the desire of the blue-garnet team to keep the six-time winner of the Golden Ball.

The reasons for the separation of Barcelona and Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi really intended to stay at the club, in the system of which he got back in 2000. Throughout his adult career, the Argentine striker defended the colors of blue-garnet, so it is simply impossible to imagine him in a T-shirt of another club. Barcelona also guaranteed a huge contract with the willingness to release the legendary football player at any time. But deep down, every fan of the team hoped that the striker would finish his career in Barcelona and take a well-deserved place in the structure of the club.

UEFA has announced the abolition of the away goal rule in European competitions, starting with the qualification of the 2021/2022 season.

Since 1965, if at the end of the main time of two matches, the opponents scored the same number of goals, then the one who scored more away went to the next round of the tournament.

How will the cancellation of the UEFA away goal rule affect betting?
Now away goals will not be counted. If the score is equal, the teams will play 2 extra-halves of 15 minutes each and a penalty shootout, if it is not possible to identify the winner in extra time.

Due to the cancellation of the rule, away goals will also be removed from the criteria that were used to determine positions in groups when several clubs scored an equal number of points. However, they will remain as an additional factor for all matches of the group stage and will be used if it is not possible to distribute the places of the opponents according to other criteria.

Floyd Mayweather is back: in Miami, the legendary boxer fought with YouTuber Logan Paul. The exhibition format of the fight implied a knockout, but there was no other way to identify the winner due to the lack of judges. Everyone was waiting for Floyd to give a master class on how to put presumptuous bloggers in their place, but this only happened formally, because Logan survived all 8 rounds.

Floyd didn't knock out Logan Paul
Yes, if there were judges, Floyd would have raised his hand: Mayweather outplayed Paul, interrupted and took a break. But Logan is much more of a winner now – he has held out with Floyd for more than almost half of his rivals, has not looked disgraceful, and has pushed the Paul brothers ' stock even higher.

With Logan and Jake it is time to reckon-they not only returned to boxing interest, but also became a real force.
