A great evening of football in Europe and the Conference League. The Sevilla goalkeeper must hold off a fan and send ManUnited Barcelona off. This was the biggest thrill.
A fan underestimates the Sevilla goalkeeper
A strange incident during the Europa League match between PSV and Sevilla: a fan of the home team arrives at the stadium and suddenly attacks the opponent’s goalkeeper. But he does not allow himself to be afraid, he knows how to stand up for himself. When the attacker hit goalkeeper Marko Dmitrovic in the face, the goalkeeper reacted with lightning speed, grabbed the attacker and pinned him to the ground.

Players of both teams run to the scene outside the guest penalty area, trying to separate the two from each other. Just then the hosts rushed in and drove the fan away with a loud roar and boos.
Dimitrovic explained the incident as follows: “I was pushed from behind by a fan. I suppose he was upset with his team’s result. I suspect he was a little angry or drunk too.” The Serbian confirmed that he always defends himself when someone attacks him. And: “I hope something like this will be punished.” PSV were eliminated after losing 3-0 in the first leg despite winning 2-0 at home.
Anthony makes United celebrate
After an entertaining 2-2 in the first leg, the second leg of the Europa League duel between Manchester United and Barcelona also provided a spectacle. Barcelona took the lead in the first half thanks to a penalty from Lewandowski, but United managed to turn things around. Fred equalized after half-time and the English kept pushing. Anthony rewarded the effort with the winning goal in the 73rd minute.

Mr Cam, as OC Chair, you will play an integral role in ensuring that ESAF 2025 takes place in Glarnerland. There has never been such a big folk festival in the canton – how did it happen?
Cuban comb: The decision-making process took more than ten years, during which we had to overcome a number of obstacles. In 2011, the interest group began planning. Then we did one Feasibility study. This showed that there is no lethal standard for ESAF in Glarnerland – but there are some open spots that still concern us today. The idea was pursued, we submitted an official candidacy and the Glarus electorate also decided to hold the main event in Landsgemeinde. Four years later, in the spring of 2021, we were finally awarded the contract by the Swiss Federal Wrestling Association.
