3 burning Ted Lasso questions ahead of the series finale

After Tuesday night's global release of Ted Lasso S3E11 ("Mom City"), we've officially entered stoppage time in the series' arc with only one episode remaining until it's all (supposedly) over for good.

Next week's series finale brings with it a demand for closure on a number of long-running plot lines, and there's still plenty of time for more developments with these final episodes burgeoning in their runtime (episode 11 clocked in at one hour and nine minutes). 

Riqui Puig does Messi celly vs. LAFC B Team, gets called a ‘clown’ by Chiellini

All El Tráficos count the same, right? Well, maybe that wasn't the case Tuesday night with LAFC and the LA Galaxy meeting in the U.S. Open Cup at only the Round of 16 stage and with LAFC entirely focused on next week's Concacaf Champions League final against León.

This meeting was basically the El Clásico equivalent of Barcelona playing Real Madrid in a preseason friendly at Hard Rock Stadium.

But don't tell Riqui Puig that.

¡Se prendió la carne asada! El beso ‘de oquis’ entre Juan Pablo Vigón y Sebástian Cordova

Juan Pablo Vigón y Sebástian Córdova protagonizaron un amoroso festejo en el duelo entre Tigres y Monterrey. Y si bien al final fue en vano, de inmediato se transformó en un momento clásico de la Liga MX.

El beso de Vigón y Córdova en el Clásico Regio

El "clásico más pasional del país" empezó caliente y no necesariamente por lo hecho en cancha.

La ida en las semifinales del Clausura 2023 terminó empatada 1-1 y con todo por definirse el próximo sábado en el Estadio BBVA. 

I can’t stop laughing at these commentators’ reactions to game-winning Indonesia goal

If you’re like me then you had no idea that the Southeast Asian Games were taking place right now. However, a late game-winner from 10-man Indonesia against Vietnam has been brought to my attention after the hilarious reaction from the commentators.

Saturday’s game was the semifinal match and Indonesia were going up against the two-time defending champions Vietnam.

Union Berlin player scores, pulls Spider-Man mask from pants and then fails to put it on correctly

Union Berlin grabbed three massive points on Saturday in their 4-2 victory vs. Freiburg as the Bundesliga underdogs look to secure a spot in the UEFA Champions League for the first time in their history. Two goals from Sheraldo “Spider-Man” Becker helped get the job done.

In the 36th minute with Union Berlin leading 1-0, Becker doubled the lead by sneaking his shot through the goalkeeper’s legs. For his celebration he whipped out a Spider-Man mask from his pants and then struggled to put it on his head.

Carlos Acevedo: 5 parecidos razonables ahora que se dejó bigote y barba

Más allá de un par de remates que salieron raspando los postes y una polemiquita por un penal que no fue, el partido de ida de los cuartos de final entre Santos Laguna y Monterrey fue bastante pobre, tal como lo reflejó el 0-0 final. 

Sin embargo, en medio de los bostezos, el retorno de Carlos Acevedo a la portería de los Guerreros – tras superar una molestia en su hombro derecho – capturó la atención de los aficionados. Y no necesariamente por su rendimiento, sino que por su nuevo look de bigote y barba.

These tiny shin guards are ‘the smallest pads on the market’

Here at The18, we don't condone small shin guards (the tibia is more exposed than Leeds United's backline), but we certainly enjoy the roguish wild cards who risk it all in the name of comfort.

Pitch invader disrupts Finnish Cup match with wheelie bad behavior

Some fans really need to get a grip! A recent Finnish Cup match between Jalkaranta Palloseura and KJP had to pump the breaks after one supporter (actually one of the player's relatives) caused a chain reaction by taking things to a whole different gear.

It's a classic case of small child on a push bike charging around the box like Teemu Pukki.

Watch: Napoli fans bag some of Udinese’s field and more wild celebrations from Naples

Thursday night in Italy was a wild one that saw Napoli fans taking Udinese grass from the Dacia Arena, fireworks that lit up the entire night sky, a boat on the road and plenty more celebrations.

Napoli were crowned Serie A champions on Thursday for the first time in 33 years after drawing with Udinese 1-1. The last time the Italian club had won it all was with Diego Maradona in 1990.
