The Lions have lost their last eight games home and away to the New Zealand side, including a 20-3 defeat in last year’s Super Rugby final in Wellington, and a humbling 50-17 home loss in the 2016 regular season.That heavy defeat was the last time the South Africans were beaten at their Ellis Park fortress, amassing a winning run of 14 games since, that almost came to an end against the Sharks in the quarter-finals last weekend.Coach Johan Ackermann, who heads to English Premiership side Gloucester at the end of the Super Rugby campaign, has selected an unchanged side from that narrow 23-21 win but is without the dynamism and leadership of injured captain Warren Whiteley, who might have been invaluable in such a crucial clash.”The Hurricanes are a team that play in your face,” Ackermann said.”They like to put teams under pressure and they did that to us last year, so hopefully we’ll handle that pressure better this time.”Maybe we won’t run as much as we did a year ago, but rather kick better tactically. We must also remember it’s a year later and the teams have changed since we last met here.”The Hurricanes have been able to select hooker and captain Dane Coles from the start for what will be his 100th Super Rugby cap in one of two changes from the side that defeated the ACT Brumbies 35-16 in their quarter-final in Canberra.Coles returned off the bench in that win having been missing since March after suffering a concussion against the Otago Highlanders.”It will be a massive honour to join those players in reaching a milestone that I never thought I would achieve,” Coles said in a press release from the Hurricanes.This year’s Super Rugby joint top try-scorer Vince Aso also returns from a groin injury at centre, which has had a domino effect through the backline.Aso takes the place of Jordie Barrett, who moves to fullback in place of Nehe Milner-Skudder. The latter has shifted to the right wing, which has sent South African-born Wes Goosen out onto the left wing in the place of Julian Savea, who drops to the bench.Victory for the Lions will see them host the Super Rugby final against the Canterbury Crusaders or the Waikato Chiefs, who meet in the other semi-final in Christchurch on Saturday.
Alotau ‘s centre Sohanna Giton was instrumental in the win, directing the flow of traffic down to her shooters to score.Goal attack Veila Tom scored the bulk of the goals for her team in the first half as Alotau took a 22-5 lead going into the break.The second half saw some fight from Motu Koita which saw them reach double figures. But Alotau continued to dominate possession and keep the scoreboard ticking.Alotau coach Sammar Marc said he was very proud of the team which had caused upsets over Kairuku Hiri (1) and (2), Motu Koita West (1), Motu Koita South and Central Province.”We’re a small centre but our girls are showing other centres that we can play netball too,” said Marc.
When last November 10 Cristiano left the field, very angry, in the minute 55 of Juventus-Milan, barely wearing five goals in 12 days of Serie A and many began to wonder if the twilight of the Portuguese had arrived. It was a big mistake: the November selection stop woke up the beast, which has since become unstoppable. Christian marked tres goals before Lithuania, one before Luxembourg, then he returned to Turin and he hasn’t stopped scoring so many: he has ten in the last eight clashes from bianconero (nine in Serie A, one in the Champions League), and adds six consecutive days of calcium ‘wetting’. A goal before Sassuolo, Lazio, Sampdoria Y Rome, two against Udinese and the hat-trick with the Cagliari, the second of Juventino after the historic night with Atleti.In this grade, Cristiano takes 16 goals in 23 appearances and on Sunday he added another record to his immense medal winners: as Opta pointed out, John hansen, until now, he had been the only one to achieve 14 goals in the first 19 days from A series with the shirt of the Juventus in more than one season (he did it in the 1950-51, 1951-52 and 1952-53). Cristiano achieved these numbers in his first two years of bianconero: his exceptional moment He has returned the untouchable condition for Maurizio Sarri, which has aligned him at the start in every game since December 1, never replacing him. The technician it’s hard to use the trident, so next to it alternatesn Higuain and Dybala, that Sunday was annoying when the Pipita took its place. The triumph against Rome handed him over to the vecchia signora the winter title (two points of advantage over Inter), closing one almost perfect first lap, with 48 points: “We are back to the site that belongs to us, at the top of the rankings, “wrote the Portuguese in their social networks after the game Of course, the other team of the Italian capital, Lazio, was responsible for staining this month with the first league defeat of the course (3-1, December 7) and, above all, with the k.o. in the final of the Super Cup, that the biancocelesti they raised in riad with another 3-1.TO Cristiano and Juve, however, there are still many challenges: morning, before him Udinese, will start their adventure in the Italian Cup, the fight for Scudetto with the nerazzurri from Conte follows red hot and, above all, in Turin they want to break the badge of the Champions League. The Lyon, rival of the eighths, invites to be optimistic for the classification: with such a Christian, dream about Istanbul It is mandatory.
Finally, the Albanian striker of the subsidiary who trained with the team in the previous one, Rey Manaj, has not been taken either.Thus, the list of 18 called for the match against Leganés (19 hours) corresponding to the round of 16 of the Cup is as follows: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Pique, Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Arthur, Messi, Lenglet, Griezmann, Sunrise, Sergi Roberto, From Jong, Vidal, Umtiti, Junior, Pain, Fati Y Collado. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 30, 2020 If in the match against Ibiza he left Messi, Piqué and Sergio Busquets in Barcelona, on this occasion against Leganés, Quique Setién is not willing to give the rival any advantage. Perhaps the experience lived in the islands was so agonizing – a victory practically at the last minute and after having to overcome the goal of disadvantage – that he has now decided to put all the meat on the grill. In fact, the Cantabrian coach has not reserved any heavyweight for the game this afternoon at the Camp Nou, summoning a total of 18 players, of which only three are from the subsidiary: Iñaki Peña, Ansu Fati and Collado.The rest, that is, a total of 15 players are from the first team. Only Moussa Wagué has been left out by technical decision, which has been systematically ruled out since the arrival of Setién. Nor is Ousmane Dembélé, who although he is already training with the group, he wants to be very cautious with the player to avoid relapses. Another casualty is the Brazilian goalkeeper Neto, who is recovering from a sprained ankle, and the one already known by all to be long-distance, that of striker Luis Suárez.
FC Barcelona won this Saturday 2-1 against Getafe CF, thanks to the goals of Antoine Griezmann and Sergi Roberto, in a match corresponding to day 24 of LaLiga Santander and which resolved the Catalans before the break, while his rival accused lack of spark after cutting distances with a target of Angel Rodriguez.This result put Barça with 52 points, tied in the coliderato with Real Madrid. For its part, the Azulón team saw its good league streak truncated and took 42 points in the third provisional place, in the absence of Sevilla playing against Espanyol during the Sunday round of meetings.The duel of benches between Quique Setién and José Bordalás, with past quarrels and apparently forgotten, was finally taken by the Blaugrana coach. But Setién barely enjoyed Leo Messi’s loose flashes, as vanishing points in an insipid match and not without controversy served from the VAR.The first 20 minutes made it clear that Getafe knows how to deal with adversaries of all kinds. The back lines close together, constant help in each marking and fast players in each band; That usual recipe put Marc-André ter Stegen in trouble, at least a couple of times.He even scored the visiting team first, by Allan Nyom. At the exit of a corner, his teammate Jorge Molina finished back in the first post and Ter Stegen deflected the ball, although leaving it to pleasure in the small area. The ’12’ of Getafe appeared to rivet the bottom of the net, although he had previously dodged Samuel Umtiti.Despite the fact that the main referee, Guillermo Cuadra Fernández, decreed the goal as valid in the first instance, he ended up canceling it by interpreting in the television repetition that Nyom had committed a foul in said struggle, due to a swipe with Umtiti’s shoulder.The locals quickly shook off the scare, inaugurating the score. Umtiti raised the play on the left side and passed the ball to Messi, who from the front of the area leaked at the first touch an assist to Griezmann. The French striker, with a subtle and also first-handed left-footed shot, ‘stung’ the ball before the rival goalkeeper’s exit. The withdrawal of Jordi Alba, replaced by Junior Firpo because of an injury to the adductor of the right leg, was not being noticed until then. Not surprisingly, Barça extended its advantage in the 39th minute, when Sergi Roberto finished a low pass in goal and from his own Junior Firpo band, active by the usual lane of Jordi Alba.There, the battle reached a point of anesthesia. Only the usual, Messi, stretched the fans of Camp Nou right on the edge of rest. A header from him, after a center pumped to the second post, was repelled by goalkeeper David Soria with a pretty stretched foot changed.Angel always meets Upon returning from changing rooms, the general dynamic was being the same until Ángel Rodríguez entered the field. Virtually everything was summed up in the Junior Firpo race without a prize on the left side, the leaked passes to nowhere by Messi and the frustrated unchecking of Griezmann.Bordalás’ plan was to send his pupils to attack, neglecting the defensive zone. But he didn’t care, since Getafe is rubbing shoulders this season with the ‘roosters’ and a goal would cheer the trick. Said and done, Angel scored 2-1 by flying in an unorthodox way a center of Jaime Mata from the right wing.Between the two central culé, and taking advantage of the fact that Gerard Piqué had miscalculated the jump for clearance, the ‘9’ blue put fear in the body at Camp Nou. A striker intended by Barça, at the expense of being allowed to sign a substitute for Ousmane Dembélé, thereby caused a stroke.To make matters worse, Angel himself had the tie in his boots, topping down a side and quite distant foul. Ter Stegen failed to try to catch the ball, but reacted immediately to prevent it from crossing the goal line; also, he touched the ball a third time, preventing Mata from pushing what would have been 2-2.The answer came with two Griezmann shots, but both deflected and leaving uncertainty until the final whistle. The first of them, after the nth low pass of Junior Firpo, sent him to the clouds; and the second was the definition of a backlash, executing a right too crossed in front of David Soria. The Blaugranas asked for an hour before an opponent without further hitting the conclusion.DATA SHEETFC BARCELONA: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Umtiti, Jordi Alba (Junior Firpo, min. 22); Busquets, Arthur (Rakitic, min. 75), De Jong; Messi, Griezmann and Ansu Fati (Vidal, min. 85).GETAFE CF: Soria; Nyom, Etxeita, Djené, Olivera (Kenedy, min. 52); Etebo (Amath, min. 68), Arambarri, Maksimovic, Cucurella; Mata and Molina (Angel, min. 52).– GOALS:1-0, min. 33: Griezmann.2-0, min. 39: Sergi Roberto.2-1, min. 66: Angel.–ÁRBITRO: Cuadra Fernández (C.Balear).

All this can pressure totally different preparation and restoration plans from the same old ones, in addition to psychological work to face the duty within the regular phases of trip. We are going to go from the desert to the leafy overload. Sport will change, it has already modified… However is there something that has not accomplished with the pandemic? Yesterday i wrote about ‘A 12 months with out spring’, which symbolically centered on that enticing biking interval that this Saturday ought to have began with the Milan-San Remo, however that may be prolonged to most disciplines, from the F1 in Monaco to Roland Garros, of the Grand nationwide to the Augusta Masters, from the top of the Euroleague to that of the Champions… Yesterday I wrote about this spring 2020 with out sports activities flowers, withered by the rattling coronavirus … And right now I bounce from season to set my sights on summer season and autumn, which is able to welcome an atypical and overloaded calendar, supplied that normality has returned then.

However tomorrow could also be one other.
Bruno Soriano, VillarrealA ‘one club man’ without discussion. He has lived heaven and hell in Castellón. He has defended the shirt with honor to Villarreal of the Champions League and Villarreal of the Second Division. It was in 2006 when he became part of the first squad and only injuries will separate him from it. At 35 he may be living his last months as a professional. Along the way, he takes 416 matches and the respect of all Spanish football.Morales, LevanteDespite the passing of the years, the ‘Commander’ Morales it is still capital for Paco López. He arrived in the club definitively in 2014, after spending a year on loan at Eibar. Not only is it untouchable, but it also carries one of the best consecutive game streaks in all of Spanish football. Although it is not being his best season, his goal at Madrid reconciled him with Ciutat de Valencia. Of course, at no time was he questioned. 219 games behind him with the granota shirt are a great guarantee.Moyano, ValladolidAgain, Valladolid fulfills the premise that clubs not settled in a category have more difficulty in establishing footballers in their first squad. In Pucela, the oldest is Moyano, who landed in the city in 2015 from Tenerife. He accumulates 147 matches between First and Second Division in his boots.LALO R. VILLAR & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Mallo and Aspas, two of the Celtic classics.LALO R. VILLAR (DAILY AS) Manu García, AlavésHis story is one of the most peculiar of all that will be exposed in these lines. He arrived in Alavés in 2012, coming from Logroñés and has lived it all with Mendizorroza as a witness. He defended the team in Second B, in Second and now in First, where he is captain and idol of the fans. 276 games in total and it is already the third highest sum in the history of the entity, only behind Pablo Gómez and Martin Astudillo. It remains to be seen if he has time to overcome the 346 of this. For the moment, it has been renewed for one more season.DAILY AS & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Manu García, on his way to being the player with the most games in Alavés history.DAILY AS (DAILY AS) The transfer market leaves an important string of movements every season. In today’s football it is less and less common to see the so-called ‘one club man’Or, what is the same, those footballers who dispute their entire careers defending the same shirt. In Spain, in fact, there are not many that respond to that profile, but all the hobbies have as an idol those who, season after season, wear the captain’s armband. What’s more, most teams have men in their ranks who have spent a decade with their second residence in the stadium. They are the best representatives of the amateur on the grass and some are assured of their presence in the history books. In a day to day of more dance than loyalty, they are the LaLiga Classics:Sergio Ramos, Real MadridIn the summer of 2005, Sergio Ramos arrived at Real Madrid from Sevilla, in an operation that left Nervión’s coffers 27 million euros. Since then, a very young central player would assume the responsibility that comes with wearing the white elastic, something that has never weighed him down. 640 games later he is already a Madridista legend. 15 seasons, 91 goals, 38 assists and historical photos like the header in the Lisbon final. He has been one of the captains at the time of the Champions League and is the first to stand up when the waters are rough.Messi, BarcelonaAt the end of 2004, a young prodigy debuted with the Barcelona shirt. The rest is history. Considered by many to be the best player in history, Messi is on his way to being ‘one club man’ despite the clause that allows him to leave Barça every year. He has played 718 matches, has scored 627 goals, has given 261 assists, has won six Golden Balls, was the highest standard of the Guardiola era … He left La Masía and each year assumes more prominence outside the field of play.Koke, Atlético de MadridManchester United or Barcelona have once knocked on his door, but Koke was always faithful to the red and white colors. In 2009 he began to have minutes, but it was not until 2011 when he settled in the first squad. 495 games behind him, with 48 goals and 102 assists in his bag. With him, Atlético has conquered one League and two Europa League. He is also launched for the prestige that being a ‘one club man’ gives. Untouchable for Simeone.JESUS ALVAREZ ORIHUELA & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Koke celebrates a goal with Wanda Metropolitano.JESUS ALVAREZ ORIHUELA (DIARIO AS) Hugo Mallo, CelticNo, it is not Iago Aspas for his adventures in Liverpool or Seville. In fact, in addition to the leader, Sergio Álvarez and Rubén Blanco they also sneak past the ram. Hugo Mallo crowns the classification, since 2009 in the first squad. At just 28 years old, he wears the captain’s armband and has seen his Celta roam the LaLiga SmartBank and travel Europe in the second continental competition. 360 games drags behind him.Oier and Roberto Torres, OsasunaBoth started on the first squad in 2012, although Oier returned after a loan at Celta. Who would have told them that, so long afterward, Osasuna was going to be fighting with the best in the First Division. For this, they had to fight almost 300 times in the dance from First to Second and from Second to First. On 284 occasions in the case of Oier and 269, in that of Roberto Torres.The case of GranadaThe aforementioned is further accentuated with Granada. In the current squad, the oldest footballers arrived in the year 2017. They are Rui Silva, Álex Martínez, Quini, Antonio Puertas, Víctor Díaz, Germán Sánchez and Montoro.Mallorca, another practically new squadExcept Junior Lake and Antonio Raíllo, in the first squad since 2016, the vast majority of Mallorca footballers are almost newcomers. Naturally, of course, since the club was in Second Division B two seasons ago. Vicente Moreno had to see in that process. Damián Suárez, GetafeThe swing of categories of Getafe in recent years has prevented any player with a long career at the Alfonso Pérez Coliseum. However, Bordalás’s modus operandi makes one believe that all players have a lifetime at his command. Of all of them, the oldest in the blue shirt is Damien Suarez, arrived in 2015. He has played 175 games, with two goals and 20 assists. The right lane is all yours.Parejo, ValenciaOut of the quarry of Real Madrid, he went through Getafe before Valencia signed him in 2011. As it could not be otherwise, he wears the captain’s armband, which he proudly defends. Mestalla considers her an absolute representative of what the club is and more in a storm season. On and off the pitch, he takes the lead. He was not afraid to express his opinion after what happened with Marcelino, while his goals kept ‘his’ Valencia afloat. In 373 games, he has scored 63 goals and has given 62 to his teammates.Escudero, SevilleSevilla has been used in recent years to be a very changing squad. In fact, an important part of Julen Lopetegui’s usual eleven was not at the club last season. The one that takes more in the Sánchez Pizjuán is Sergio Escudero, who arrived from Getafe in 2015. He has dressed the shirt in 157 games, although this season he is having fewer minutes due to the loan of Reguilón from Real Madrid.MICHAEL DALDER & nbsp; (REUTERS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Escudero, the most veteran of the changing Sevilla squad.MICHAEL DALDER (REUTERS) Ramis and Enrich, EibarAs with Getafe, Eibar’s dance for Spanish football prevents it from having veteran footballers within its own squad. The longest-lived in Ipurua are Iván Ramis and Sergi Enrich, both arriving for the 2015-16 season.. The first came from Levante and has worn the club’s shirt 92 times. The striker, meanwhile, has played 159 games, with 35 goals in his boots.Szymanowski, LeganésButarque is eagerly awaiting to hear the roar of Alexander Szymanowski again, whose injuries have not respected him in recent years. In 838 days, he has only been able to play ten minutes of official competition. The break of the crusader was the last obstacle on his way. Even so, he is the footballer who previously reached Leganés of all those who make up the first squad. It was in 2015 and, since then, he has played 90 games with the cucumber club.Joaquín, BetisDespite the fact that this study only includes the consecutive time that the players have spent in a club, Joaquín is still number one in his Betis. The winger returned in 2015, after leaving his city to try his luck at Valencia, Malaga and Fiorentina.. He was born in the green and white quarry and, at 38, will retire at Benito Villamarín. But time does not seem to pass for him, as he is on his way to sign his highest scoring season in the First Division. It has been 377 times Betico and is one of the icons of national football.Toni Rodriguez & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Joaquín, a living legend of Betis.Toni Rodriguez (DAILY AS) Muniain, Athletic Club de BilbaoA promising attacker rose to Athletic’s first squad in 2009. At that time he was 17 years old and his projection placed him in the largest teams in Europe. Finally, nothing got him out of Athletic, his childhood club and where he will continue his entire career except surprise. 411 games guarantee him, with 59 goals and 42 assists. His performance this season gave him a new opportunity in the Selection.Zurutuza, Real SociedadThe midfielder could be facing his last dances in football. At 33, he is very punished for injuries and ends contract on June 30. Looking back, in 2009, he defended the Real Sociedad first team for the first time. More than a decade later, the physicist could keep you from your dream. Along the way, yes, he has left the skin in 302 games, in which he has scored 22 goals and has given 22 assists.Javi López, EspanyolThe parakeet captain is 34 years old and now has more than ten in Cornellá. Curiously, it came from the Betis quarry. Of course, he quickly took root in the culture of the entity and has become one of the best representatives of his shirt. Injuries and competition have not allowed him to play as many games as he would have liked. “A club with this history and pride cannot afford to be where we are,” he said before confinement.
The past winter market, Barcelona made an unexpected move, when closing the Trincao contract, for just over 30 million euros. The footballer, practically unknown, will sign until 2025. Bartomeu thus trusts the young talent of Braga, whom he has been following for a long time. At least, that has ensured Bruno Carvalho Santos, his representative.According to his words, Barcelona follows Trincao from the 2018 U19 Championship, when Portugal took the title after beating Italy. “I then had a meeting with the technical structure of Barça“, has recognized the representative. However, at that time his contract was not closed but there were simply contacts for the first time. “Since then, Barcelona began to follow him more closely. They watched him in every game. So, between December and January of this season, it exploded and they decided to sign him immediately. Barça took advantage of an opportunity in the transfer market and beat all the other clubs, “adds Bruno Carvalho, thus showing that there were more interested parties.Next summer, unless the club decides to transfer it so that it continues to gain experience, it will join the Blaugrana discipline. SSeven goals and nine assists guarantee this season. In addition, it can occupy various positions in the attack and would give freshness for its youth. Of course, the club has already shown full confidence in its projection.
A supply from Olympique de Marseille and one other from Stuttgart. And, just some weeks after fracture the left tibia in the midst of the World Cup, particularly in the course of the Netherlands-Mexico, he acknowledged that “earlier than the harm he had issues to exit.” Not in useless, and with a battered economic system, Espanyol in the summertime of 2014 needed to make money, and in a giant approach, via the sale of Héctor Moreno. Till it broke in Brazil and all the things was reduce brief. What was unknown is how shut he had been, at the very least he says so, to signing for the parakeets’ everlasting rival. Moreno, that the next summer time he spent three weeks occupying one of many captaincies to be transferred to PSV Eindhoven for about 5 million (what helped finance the acquisition of Gerard Moreno from Villarreal), had already said in December 2014: “My dream is to play with the very best groups on the earth, play European competitions, be preventing championships. And I work for it, however at the moment my actuality is Espanyol” After Holland, he handed via Rome, Actual Sociedad and now he performs for the Qatari Al Gharafa. Chatting with TUDN, from Mexico, the central predicts that “certainly it will have been completely different (with out the harm) since not solely had been there talks with Barcelona, however he had the potential for having signed earlier than the 2014 World Cup in Brazil ”, he assures. And he provides: “I felt excellent in all elements, the tactical scheme and teammates helped me lots so that I excelled. However occurred what occurred, it was onerous, I needed to put a break in life” And he explains that even the injured man had some supply, which elevated when he recovered. “However I didn’t assume I used to be able to go, it was onerous, however I don’t change the expertise for nothing“He initiates.

However, they were held to a 2-2 draw against West Ham last Sunday before Spurs put in an impressive performance at Stoke City a day later, winning 4-0.Harry Kane and Deli Alli both scored twice in that game, with the former taking his league tally to 47 since the start of last season. Eight of Alli’s 10 goals have come on the road.And Spurs return to White Hart Lane having lost just four league games. Their previous fewest losses in top-flight league football is eight, in 2010-11 and 2012-13, meaning that will at least equal a club record and are more than likely to beat it.Two more records could be set: Spurs have scored 64 goals; three short of their best haul in the Premier League, with 67 in the 2009-10 campaign. And they have conceded only 25; their previous fewest in the Premier League is 28 (1995-96 and 2005-06), while the least in any top-flight campaign is 22, in the old First Division in 1970-71.Since losing at home to Leicester in January, Spurs have taken 16 points from a possible 18 and have a clean bill of health. Albion, in Premier League action at Arsenal on Thursday, miss Chris Brunt and James Morrison.
