Josep Guardiola, Iga Swiatek, Châteauroux – PSG without Messi, Neymar and Mbappé: the sports news set of January 6, 2023

What you may have missed between last night and this morning

1. Football – Premier League: Guardiola ended up finding inspiration

Mixed feelings for Pep. Josep Guardiola tried a tactical move that proved catastrophic in the first half of the clash against Chelsea. The City coach finally corrected the situation with winning coaching in the second half. Two entrants, Jack Grealish, passer, and Riyad Mahrez, scorers, gave victory to the runner-up to Arsenal at Stamford Bridge (0-1). And allowed the champion of England to reduce the gap to five points with the Gunners. The Blues are 10 points from the podium.

2. Tennis – United Cup: Swept away, Swiatek ends in tears

Big sensation in Sydney. Iga Swiatek, world No.1, bowed heavily to Jessica Pegula in the first match of the semi-final between Poland and the United States. The Pole scored only four games against an American in a state of grace (6-2, 6-2), ending in tears after a meeting that lasted just over an hour. A surprising setback, two weeks before the Australian Open.

3. Basketball – NBA: Boston recovers, Markkanen excellent

The heavy defeat against OKC is already just a bad memory. The Boston Celtics reacted perfectly in the wake of Jayson Tatum (29 points, 14 rebounds, 10 assists) against the Dallas Mavericks of Luka Doncic, limited to 23 points (95-124). The individual performance of the evening is for the Finn Lauri Markkanen, author of 49 points during the victory of Utah in Houston (114-131). The Denver Nuggets made short work of the Los Angeles Clippers (122-91) while Memphis took over Orlando (115-123).

To see and read on Eurosport

Accustomed to a duality with France, Norway has outrageously dominated the men’s biathlon circuit since the start of the season. A somewhat worrying hegemony which could well be confirmed in the Pokljuka sprint, to be followed live on Eurosport from 2:20 p.m.

Worrying, the situation of ASM Clermont-Auvergne is also. ASMCA had a frankly complicated week before a knife match against USAP on Saturday. And for Raphaël Poulain, the announced departure of his international Damian Penaud from UBB at the end of the season is not necessarily unrelated to the phenomenon…

Poulain on Penaud: “Announcing a departure can unconsciously influence the results on the ground”

Finally, double football ration to prepare well for the weekend. Can you imagine Zinedine Zidane at the head of the Seleçao? In any case, the legend of the Blues ticks a lot of boxes to revive an auriver team that came out of the quarter-finals of the last World Cup. Maxime Dupuis was able to verify that Zizou had a good rating in Brazil, this country that he martyred so much.

Without transition, we go from the Brazilian sun to the grayness of Newcastle. The Premier League’s new rich are having a remarkable season and are in the running for the Champions League. The results are there, but the way can be debated. For our consultant Philippe Auclair, the Magpies even remind Diego Simeone’s Atlético…

The question of the day: who will take responsibility at PSG?

They are behind or behind almost all of PSG’s goals this season. So we are curious to see who will take responsibility within Christophe Galtier’s team in the absence of Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi and Neymar against Michel Denisot’s Châteauroux, in the 32nd finals of the Coupe de France. Substitutes who have not given satisfaction since last summer? Or young people who are just waiting to have their chance in the Parisian eleven, like Warren Zaire-Emery? Response from 9 p.m.
