Most-watched soccer games on U.S. TV: April 4-10, 2022

The most anticipated game of the 2021-22 Premier league season unfolded at the Etihad Stadium. The home side's early press paid off when Kevin De Bruyne made the best of a surprise solo effort to make it 1-0 in the sixth minute. However, celebrations were cut short by Diogo Jota, who culminated a well-orchestrated combination of passes with a goal in the 12th minute. Gabriel Jesus surprised the Reds' backline with a well-timed second post run and first-time finish over Allison and into the goal. Man City led at halftime 2-1, but Liverpool spoiled the party in the first minute of the second half. Sadio Mane got the best of Kyle Walker with speed and finished a one-on-one with Ederson. 

USA Network's Premier League broadcast on Sunday scored a 0.40 viewership rating after it averaged 1,088,000 viewers, topping soccer viewership in the USA last week.

Real Madrid's 3-1 win against Chelsea at Stanford Bridge on Wednesday was the second most-watched soccer game in the USA last week. CBS' Champions League quarterfinal first-leg encounter between The Blues and Los Blancos averaged 850,000 viewers and scored a 0.54 viewership rating. Frenchman Karim Benzema scored a hat-trick that gave Real Madrid the cushion needed to come up on top in the second leg.

Tottenham buried Aston Villa 4-0 at Villa Park on Saturday. NBC screened the Premier League match, which ended up as third most-viewed game in the country last week.

Klopp's men infamously thrashed Cristiano and Co. 5-0 at Old Trafford in their previous encounter, but with Rangnick's men desperately chasing a top-four finish, the visitors cannot afford to slip up at Anfield.

Biggest stories of the week

Confirmed: Liverpool to face Villarreal, Real Madrid to play Man City in UCL semi-final

The fixtures for the semifinals of this season's UEFA Champions League have been confirmed following the conclusion of the last round of quarterfinal matches on Wednesday. Liverpool are set to take on Villarreal while Real Madrid and Manchester City lock horns in a knockout game once again

Villarreal and Real Madrid confirmed their places in the semis by registering respective aggregate wins over Bayern Munich and Chelsea on Tuesday night. On Wednesday, Premier League pair Liverpool and Man City joined them after their wins over Benfica and Atletico Madrid.

The former hosted the Portuguese side at Anfield and ended proceedings with a 3-3 draw but it was enough to hand them a 6-4 aggregate win as they had secured a 3-1 win in the reverse encounter in Lisbon. On the contrary, Man City held onto their one-goal advantage from the first leg and drew 0-0 at Wanda Metropolitano to eliminate Atletico Madrid.

The first leg of the semifinals will be held on April 26 and 27, with the second legs taking place a week later on May 3-4. The winners will compete in the final on May 28 in Paris. The two semifinals will feature the same country-versus-country pairings for the third time since 2013.

Mother of 14-year-old boy Cristiano allegedly assaulted at Everton speaks out against Man Utd star

After Manchester United's embarrassing 1-0 defeat against Everton, a video surfaced in which Cristiano Ronaldo appears to allegedly assault a young Everton fan on his way off the pitch, sparking controversy. The mother of that son has since spoken to the media, slamming the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

In the aforementioned clip, Ronaldo, who was hurt and visibly angry, heads towards the Goodison Park tunnel before slapping a phone out of the hands of a 14-year-old in rage, thus smashing it on the floor. Additionally, the alleged victim, who was later revealed to be autistic, was left with a bruise on his hand.

After this story began picking up traction, the Portuguese icon took to social media to issue an apology and extend an olive branch, offering to invite the kid to Old Trafford in order to make amends.

"I would like to apologize for my outburst and, if possible, I would like to invite this supporter to watch a game at Old Trafford as a sign of fair-play and sportsmanship," the five-time Ballon d'Or winner wrote in a lengthy Instagram post.

However, the mother of the young boy spoke out, and she was having none of it, hitting out at the 37-year-old for his attitude and accusing the forward of being insincere.

"I've got nothing to say to [him]," she told Sky News.

"Why should I travel to Old Trafford? Why would 'a Blue' want to go to [visit] 'a Red'?

"If he was genuine, I think he should have turned around at the moment of the incident, picked Jake's phone up and been like, 'I'm sorry.'

"That was the biggest laugh for me: 'sportsmanship'. When you can do that to a 14-year-old boy. That's not sportsmanship at all."

Sarah, the mum of the 14-year-old boy, claims that her son has received online abuse "mainly from United fans" while also ripping the Red Devils apart for the manner in which they handled this situation.

"United have handled it terribly and it's just made things even worse to be honest," she told Liverpool ECHO.

"The way I see it is, if someone assaulted him in the street and then asked us to go around for dinner, we wouldn't.

"Just because he's Cristiano Ronaldo, why would we do it? It's like we owe him a favour, but I'm sorry, we don't."

Eden Hazard set to join Bundesliga giants after woeful Real Madrid spell

It is safe to say that Eden Hazard's stay at Santiago Bernabeu has been anything but impressive, and even if he is currently injured, interesting news about his immediate future have emerged recently for those who still believe in his chances to shine elsewhere.

A recent report by Cadena Ser suggested that the player was set to end his contract with the Spanish side by the end of the season, with teams from the Premier League such as Newcastle, Arsenal, or Chelsea being his potential destination. Nevertheless, a new destination has emerged for the player with a high chance of becoming a reality.

The show SER Deportivos hinted that Hazard could embark on a new adventure with Borussia Dortmund, the perennial candidates to end Bayern München's dominance in the Bundesliga. Hazard would join the black and yellow side with Real Madrid's blessing, mainly because president Florentino Pérez has a relatively good relationship with BVB's main man, Hans-Joachim Watzke. 

The Belgian would have an added bonus to his signing, as he would complete his dream of playing alongside his brother, Thorgan Hazard, who has turned into a rather reliable player for Marco Rose's team. 

Hazard's exit from Real Madrid would also help the team lower its salary cap, which will pave the way for some of their marquee signings for the summer, which will reportedly include Kylian Mbappé, Erling Haaland, and at least two more players, according to the Spanish media outlet.

The Belgian player has only been able to play 65 games for Los Blancos since he joined them in the summer of 2019, scoring six goals in the process. Right now, Hazard is recovering from a surgery on his right leg that could mark the end of his stint with the Spanish capital team with him on the sidelines.

Milan dealt blow with key striker ruled out due to new injury

Currently on top of the Serie A table - albeit by a very narrow margin following back to back draws - Milan are in contention to win what would be their first Scudetto in 11 years.

The Rossoneri were left frustrated due to a dull scoreless draw with Torino last time out, but are still ahead of both Napoli and Inter in this season's Scudetto race.

While their return to the Champions League was an utter disaster, as they crashed out of the group stages, Stefano Pioli's men are in contention to win a domestic double, as they're set to take on Inter in the semifinals of the Coppa Italia.

However, they'll have to do so without one of their key players. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has struggled with injuries this season that has seen him miss quite a few games, and has restricted him to just scoring eight goals across all comps so far.

Ibrahimovic wasn't able to travel to Turin to face Torino last weekend, and now it's been revealed that he'll miss at least a week and a half of action due to a knee injury. That means that the 40-year-old will miss out on the upcoming showdown with the Nerazzurri in the Coppa Italia as well as Serie A games against Lazio and Genoa.

Other key headlines from the world of football

Guardiola sets new Champions League record as Man City hold on to reach semis

Pep Guardiola has found himself in the history books of the UEFA Champions League once more for leading Man City to another semifinal appearance in the competition. The 51-year-old Spanish manager's side ended Wednesday's affair in a stalemate and advanced to the last four stage of the European cup competition with a 1-0 aggregate win.

Nevertheless, the scrappy win was enough for Man City as Pep Guardiola reached his ninth Champions League semifinal. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager's haul is the most managed by any manager in the history of the competition. The game was also the Cityzens' 100th match in the UEFA Champions League. The Premier League giants have won 55 of the century of games played - the most by an English side after the same number of appearances - and only trail Real Madrid, who won 57 of their first 100 in the competition.

Mexico's coach comes clean about the reasons for Chicharito's snub from El Tri

Mexico's lack of goals during the final stage of the World Cup qualifiers has seen fans and experts pleading for LA Galaxy ace Javier "Chicharito" Hernández, since they believe his current form is better than the one shown by players that have been handed a chance to play for El Tri. In a press conference, national team coach Gerardo Martino revealed some of the reasons why he has chosen not to add Chicharito to his rosters for almost three years.

"It is also true that there have been other players that have raised their hands and that have caused some disagreements between myself and my staff which have seen me leaving Javier out of the team," the coach added.

The reasons behind Hernández's absence from El Tri have never been discussed publicly, but reports from different sources suggest that the striker failed to comply with the team's disciplinary measures in one of his final call ups, and that his refusal to offer Martino and his teammates an apology for his actions are the reason why he has been snubbed since 2019.

Why Tuchel was unhappy with the referee after Chelsea's heartbreaking UCL exit vs Real Madrid

The Stamford Bridge tactician had a few issues with the match official from their Santiago Bernabeu clash with Los Blancos, accusing him of favoring Real Madrid with his calls, although he stopped short of naming any contentious decision. Additionally, Tuchel was not happy with the manner in which Marcus Alonso's goal was ruled out, as it was deemed a handball by VAR, arguing that referee Szymon Marciniak should have gone over to the screen to review the footage himself.

"It's not only today; it was like this in the first leg," Thomas said when asked about yesterday's officiating, as per the Guardian. "Maybe I get problems [if I talk]. If you play against Real Madrid, you can maybe expect that not everybody has the courage.

"I told him I am super disappointed that he doesn't come and check [the footage of the handball] on his own. You should stay the boss and not give the decision to someone sitting in a chair, isolated from the atmosphere. He should stay in charge and check it on his own and explain it better. I thought we deserved more minutes [added on] at the end. Maybe it is too much to ask for in matches like this against this opponent. Listen, we had it in our hands and we were not lucky enough.

"I was disappointed that the referee had a good time with my colleague Ancelotti," Tuchel also added. "I know that Carlo is a gentleman and a nice guy and when I go I see him smiling and laughing out loud with the opposition coach and I think this is very, very wrong time to do this at the end of 120 minutes of fight, when you give every last drop, to go [and see that]. I think this is very, very bad timing."
