Bayern face up to CSKA the Guardiola way

first_imgNo team has successfully defended the UEFA Champions League title but Josep Guardiola is warming to the challenge ahead of FC Bayern München’s Group D curtain-raiser at home to PFC CSKA Moskva on Tuesday.The 42-year-old coach is too savvy to fall victim to complacency having learned the hard way against the Russian outfit during his playing days with FC Barcelona. His counterpart Leonid Slutski, meanwhile, promised that his team – shorn of playmaker Alan Dzagoev – would “give everything” to make life difficult for a Bayern side comprised of “extraordinary players”.BayernJosep Guardiola, coachI like the Champions League – it is a very important competition, but also very difficult. So many teams are in contention to win it this year. I am proud to undertake this challenge with my new team. CSKA are a very strong side at this stage of the year. They have lots of good players who are physically quite strong.When I evaluate my opponents I don’t concentrate on individuals but the team as a whole. The most important thing is to see how they work as a team, how they play in defence. I remember a game in 1992 against CSKA. We [Barcelona] played very well and lost [3-2 at home in a 4-3 aggregate defeat]. We didn’t know how to counteract their game, handle their counterattacks, and we had won the European Cup the year before.Bayern won everything playing extraordinary football last season. This season we have done well, mostly in the second halves of games. I know the team very well. The players always try to do exactly what I want them to do. If they don’t do what I want, it’s my fault. We stand together and the players want to play my type of football.Weekend resultSaturday: Bayern 2-0 Hannover 96 (Mandžukić 51, Ribéry 64)Neuer; Rafinha, Van Buyten, J Boateng (Dante 68), Alaba, Lahm, Kroos (Kirchhoff), Robben, Müller, Ribéry (Shaqiri 80), Mandžukić. • In a dominant performance, a Mario Mandžukić tap-in and Franck Ribéry rebound settled matters. Bayern have only conceded twice in five Bundesliga games and have the best defensive record in the league.Team newsGuardiola is hopeful that Bastian Schweinsteiger will recover from an ankle injury but he is without Thiago Alcántara (ankle), Javi Martínez (groin) and Mario Götze (ankle).CSKALeonid Slutski, coachThe Bayern team today is very different to that of last season. With the new coach they have fresh ideas and strategies. However, the players remain the same and they are some of the best in the world. You just have to look at how impressive they were in the Super Cup against Chelsea.It’s disappointing to be without Dzagoev but we must be flexible in these situations. It will be tough, playing against one of the best teams in the world, but we will give everything. They are a team of extraordinary players who like to play attacking football and it’s only a matter of time before they adapt to Guardiola’s philosophy.Weekend resultSaturday: CSKA 1-0 FC Rostov (Bazelyuk 70)Akinfeev; Schennikov, Ignashevich, V Berezutski, Nababkin; Wernbloom, Dzagoev (Cauņa 79), Honda, Tošić (Zuber 46); Vitinho (Bazelyuk 69), Musa. • Konstantin Bazelyuk marked his league debut with a goal that extended CSKA’s winning streak to four games. It was the 20-year-old’s fourth goal in three games having struck three for Russia U21s during the international break.Team newsDzagoev and Zoran Tošić will play no part in Munich after picking up injuries against Rostov. Rasmus Elm, Mário Fernandes, Mark González and Seydou Doumbia are other absentees.Match fact• CSKA’s previous two visits to Germany came in the UEFA Champions League group stage and each time they lost – 3-2 at Hamburger SV in 2006/07 and 3-1 to VfL Wolfsburg in 2009/10, when Dzagoev scored their goal – although they did win both Moscow meetings.last_img read more

Wellington girls finish fifth in Haven Tournament

first_imgCheney10171218—57 Wellington21121016—59 Wellington: Avery Rusk 23, Lauryn Snipes 19, Tayland French 8, Shayland French 7, Taylor Zimmerman 2. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington girls basketball team finished fifth in the Haven Tournament and reached .500 for the first time this season with a 59-57 win over Cheney in the consolation championship game Saturday afternoon.Avery Rusk scored 23 points and Lauryn Snipes had 19 to help lift the Crusaders to victory.The game was a thriller coming down to the final 10 seconds. The game was tied 57-all with nine seconds remaining as Cheney made a big comeback late in the game. Wellington called timeout.“It was pretty simple in the huddle,” said Eric Adams, Wellington head girls basketball coach. “Get the ball to Snipes and everyone get the heck out of the way and then crash the boards hard.” Cheney would foul Snipes going to the basket with three seconds remaining and she hit both free throws to take the 59-57 lead. The Cardinals would attempt one shot from 15 feet but it would miss and the Lady Dukes prevailed.Wellington finished 2-1 in the tournament which is always good. The Crusaders will now travel to Buhler Tuesday as the teams get back to single night action. Buhler is 11-2 placing third in the Haven tournament beating the host Haven team 71-48 for third place.Kingman won the tournament with a 50-34 victory over Goddard. Kingman beat Wellington in the first round.Saturday, Wellington led 21-10 in the first quarter but was outscored in the second quarter 17-2 to lead at the half 33-27.“Before the game, we wanted to play our three/quarter court pressure man defense, mixing in with some trapping and let our defense be our best offense and the girls accomplished that,” Adams said.Out of the first 21 points, 14 came off fast break opportunities. The Cardinals did not let them rattle them.“Cheney is so well coached, and their defensive transition was so good in the second quarter which made us play more half-court style,” Adams said.Wellington went more to a half-court trapping style of defense which led to some easy baskets. The lead would swell to 15 points at one point.But Cheney cut back into the lead, when 6-footer Haley Albers would go on a tear, hitting some huge baskets including a couple three-point baskets and eventually tying the game at 57-all.In an earlier game, Wellington would beat Rose Hill 50-38 in a second round game on Friday.Rusk would score 17 points while Snipes had 16.

Two-try debutant Herschel Jantjies stars for Springboks

first_imgDebutant South Africa scrum-half Herschel Jantjies scores his first try after just 11 minutes against Australia in JohannesburgJohannesburg, South Africa | AFP | Debutant scrum-half Herschel Jantjies scored two tries as South Africa beat Australia 35-17 Saturday in the opening match of the Rugby Championship season in Johannesburg.The Western Stormers half-back claimed the first and fourth Springbok tries before being warmly applauded when substituted 14 minutes from time at Ellis Park.South Africa outscored Australia by five tries to two for a bonus point win despite resting a number of regulars ahead of an away clash with world champions New Zealand next weekend.Jantjies was one of a record eight black players in the starting XV of the Springboks, a team that used only white players during the apartheid era.His performance highlighted an encouraging start by South Africa in the Championship, which this year is a build-up competition ahead of the Rugby World Cup in Japan from September 20.Apart from the tries, Jantjies gave a superb all-round performance, winning praise from TV analyst and former Springbok fly-half Joel Stransky.“He played like a seasoned campaigner rather than a debutant,” said the man whose drop goal won the 1995 Rugby World Cup final for South Africa against New Zealand.Lock Eben Etzebeth, captaining South Africa in the absence of injured Siya Kolisi, also hailed Herschel Jantjies.“Herschel played unbelievably well and it was a great performance. We stuck to our guns and came through in the end.“I just told the team at half-time to keep to the structures, to keep being physical and the rewards will come.“We want to play attractive rugby, play with ball in hand, and it was nice to just be back on the pitch.”Australia captain and flanker Michael Hooper said “South Africa controlled the second half and we missed a few opportunities that could have created a different picture.– ‘World class’ – “Our attack in the first half was world class, but otherwise there is a lot of improvement needed. We are in the middle of a process.”Herschel Jantjies settled quickly and opened the scoring on 11 minutes with a try after the Springboks won a turnover and moved the ball swiftly down the right wing.Elton Jantjies converted for a seven-point lead trimmed to four when Bernard Foley slotted a penalty with his first shot at goal.Lukhan Salakaia-Loto went over for a try, but it was disallowed with New Zealand referee Paul Williams needing to see only one video replay to confirm a forward pass had set up the score.South Africa were temporarily reduced to 14 men when Andre Esterhuizen was yellow-carded for a high tackle on Tom Banks.While the centre sat in the sin bin, both the Springboks and the Wallabies scored converted tries on a chilly southern hemisphere winter evening.Carries by Pieter-Steph du Toit and Herschel Jantjies took the ball within a centimetre of the tryline and Lood de Jager barged over with Elton Jantjies converting.Australia opted to send a kickable penalty into touch rather than shoot for goal and the gamble paid off with Dane Haylett-Petty diving over in the far corner.Foley converted to close the first-half scoring just before Esterhuizen returned to the fray and restored the Springboks to full strength.Although South Africa trooped off at half-time with a four-point advantage, they had much less of the ball and a worrying number of missed tackles.South Africa took control in the second half and Sibusiso Nkosi, Herschel Jantjies and Cobus Reinach, in additional time, scored tries, all of which Elton Jantjies converted.Australia had substitute prop Taniela Tupou yellow-carded in the second half before a brilliant break by Kurtley Beale allowed Foley to score a try he converted.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Video: Did Michigan State Get Away With A Foul On Melo Trimble’s Last Second Heave?

first_imgMelo Trimble "fouled" at the end of Michigan State game.Vine/Andy WittryMaryland struggled down the stretch this season, but played Big Ten favorite Michigan State very tough in today’s conference semifinal. With 0.8 seconds left, down 64-61, the Terps had a chance at a long Melo Trimble heave to tie the game, and on the play it appears that he may have been fouled by Michigan State’s Eron Harris while shooting. A call would have put Trimble, an 86-percent free throw shooter, on the line with a chance to tie the game, but the referees swallowed their whistles, giving Sparty the win.Was it the right call? You decide:Last shot by Maryland. Close call on if it’s a foul or not. Michigan St. wins and will play Purdue tomorrow https://t.co/lCScEB2jwb— THE MAIN MANN™ (@JacobMann_1) March 12, 2016Twitter certainly doesn’t have a consensus.Don’t think that was a foul on Harris but WHY IS HE THERE???— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) March 12, 2016That was a foul on the last shot but #Terps had their chances.— Zachary Cohen (@ZcohenCNN) March 12, 2016LOL Maryland got screwed on the last play. Clear foul.— Peyton Manning GOAT (@mranieri17) March 12, 2016Maryland didn’t deserve a foul at the end. They got too many of them the first 15 minutes of the 2nd half. So no, Terp fans can’t complain— Adam Ruff (@AdamMRuff) March 12, 2016Terps nation: dont complain about the “foul” at the end. Complain about the coach that doesn’t prepare our team or make any adjustments— DLee (@dmvDLEE) March 12, 2016At any other point in the game that’s a foul. Basketball is dumb— Alyssa Goins (@AlyssaGoins) March 12, 2016“I swear to god I didn’t see it” as CBS shows him losing it because it was clearly a foul— Anthony Valle (@Ant_Films) March 12, 2016That was probably a foul at the end of the Maryland-Michigan State game, but a referee is never going to call that.— Justin Howard (@JustinHoward44) March 12, 2016At the same time, if you’re stupid enough to contest a 3/4-length shot and make contact, you should probably be punished with a foul.— Jesse Yomtov (@JesseYomtov) March 12, 2016“If that was a foul, I will tell you some other ones on our side that were fouls.” -Tom Izzo #goat #V4MSU #bigtentournament— Jerry VanDorpe (@JDVanDorpe) March 12, 2016That is 100 percent a foul.— Andrew Holleran (@andrewjholleran) March 12, 2016Calling a foul there would be very rough, but Harris can’t put himself in that position. Michigan State might’ve gotten a little lucky today.More: The 10 CFB Teams That Could Go Undefeated In 2016 >>>last_img read more

Court fines independent Russian magazine 335000

first_imgMOSCOW — A Moscow court has ruled to fine an independent magazine $335,000, a move seen by Kremlin critics as retribution for reporting that is critical of the government.The Tverskoy Court on Tuesday upheld last month’s hearing, meaning that the New Times magazine will have to pay the crippling fine for failing to notify authorities on time of receiving foreign funding.The New Times’ editor-in-chief has mounted a crowdfunding campaign and managed to raise over $370,000 to pay the fine, which had threatened to force the publication to shut down.The fine is believed to be the first measure taken in line with recent tough legislation that aims to fight against what the Kremlin sees as foreign influence in Russian media.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Upset Alert Pacers Take Game 2 as LeBron Wade

Pacers and George Hill got it done.It is one thing to lose at home to the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference semifinals. It’s another thing to lose with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade failing in the waning moments.But that’s exactly what happened. And the Indiana Pacers were the benefactors with a 78-75 victory that tied the series at 1-1.James, who had 28 points, nine rebounds and five assists, missed two foul shots with 54.3 seconds left and Miami down by a point. He had missed another free throw earlier. And with 16 seconds to go and the Pacers in front by two, Wade missed a driving layup.And finally, down by three in the last seconds of the game, neither Wade nor James took the last shot. It was a contested bomb by Mario Chalmers that clanked off the rim that sealed Indiana’s triumph that secured it the home court advantage.Forward David West  led the way with 16 points and  10 rebounds and guard George Hill added 15.Playing without injured forward Chris Bosh (abdominal strain), who is out for the series, the Heat received little help from anyone other than James and Wade. No other Miami player scored more than five points.The Heat have until Thursday’s Game 3 in Indianapolis to figure it out. read more
