Leipzig warm up for Tottenham by regaining top spot in Bundesliga

first_img Loading… RB Leipzig warmed up for their Champions League last 16 tie at Tottenham Hotspur next week with a routine 3-0 win over strugglers Werder Bremen to regain top spot from Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Saturday.Advertisement Leipzig’s sporting director Markus Kroesche praised his team for preserving energy with the Spurs tie looming in London on Wednesday.“The boys know we have some heavy weeks coming up, so they knew not to burn things up and score six or seven goals in the process,” he said.Kroesche said the victory keeps the pressure on Bayern after Leipzig earned a goalless draw at the Allianz Arena last Sunday.“I don’t know whether we are the hunter or the hunted, it’s just important that we win these games and see what the next few weeks bring.”Goals by defender Lukas Klostermann, forward Patrik Schick and midfielder Nordi Mukiele sealed the home win.Klostermann broke the deadlock when he tapped home on 18 minutes when Schick had nudged the ball back from the far post after a free-kick.Schick then grabbed his sixth Bundesliga goal of the season just before the break when he headed home a corner by Spain Under-21 playmaker Dani Olmo. Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi put in a great save to prevent an own goal just before halftime after defender Dayot Upamecano had stretched to block a shot.France Under-21 midfielder Mukiele put the matter beyond doubt immediately after the break when he darted into the box, held off his marker and beat Bremen goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka.The defeat piles the pressure on Bremen coach Florian Kohfeldt after his 10th loss in 12 league games keeps his side second from bottom.Elsewhere, Hertha Berlin ended a chaotic week, following the shock departure of head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, with a 2-1 win at bottom side Paderborn as Brazilian striker Matheus Cunha, signed from Leipzig, scored on his debut.Klinsmann dropped a bombshell on Tuesday when he quit after just 10 weeks in charge.His assistant Alexander Nouri was in a caretaker capacity at Paderborn where defender Dedryck Boyata headed Hertha into an early lead before Cunha had a goal disallowed.Hertha goalkeeper Rune Jarstein gave Paderborn brief hope with an own-goal early in the second-half, but Cunha grabbed the winner with a cheeky backheel on 67 minutes.The win leaves Hertha 13th, nine points above the relegation places.Dutch striker Wout Weghorst netted a hat-trick, including two penalties, for Wolfsburg in their 3-2 win over Hoffenheim which left them ninth, four points from the European places.The goals flew in the dying stages of Bayer Leverkusen’s stunning 3-2 win at Union Berlin as Karim Bellarabi netted the winner four minutes into added time.Having scored two late goals within 82 seconds of each other in last weekend’s 4-3 home win over Borussia Dortmund, Peter Bosz’s Leverkusen again left it late.Football: Leipzig warm up for Spurs by regaining top spot in Germany https://t.co/vrq9P7UzHo pic.twitter.com/kJ2NkpGQe9— Google Trends Online (@GoogleTrendsOn1) February 15, 2020Read Also: Bundesliga: Haaland extends Dortmund tally to nine in six gamesWith the scores locked at 2-2 after 90 minutes, Bellarabi finished a move he started and beat Union goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz to send the ball rolling over the line in the 94th minute.The win leaves Leverkusen fourth before Saturday’s late game when Borussia Moenchengladbach are at relegation-threatened Fortuna Duesseldorf.On Friday, Erling Braut Haaland continued his phenomenal scoring record for third-placed Borussia Dortmund when he netted his ninth goal in six games in their 4-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img With Bayern playing Cologne away on Sunday, Leipzig took the chance to usurp the defending champions and establish a two-point lead.

Arsenal legend Wright says Saka played out of position

first_img Originally a winger, the 18-year-old got his break in the first-team this season by playing left-back. Asked if Saka could become the next Ashley Cole, Wright said: “For me he’s a better winger. “It’s just because of his ability and how good he is that he can play that position. “Ashley turned out to be one of the best full-backs in the world but this guy is better further forward.” Saka has yet to sign a extension on his current which expires in 2021.Advertisement Loading… And Wright thinks the Englishman should hold out for the best deal. “He’s right him and his representatives to hold out as best they can because he’s the future of the club,” added Wright. “They cannot afford to let a player like this leave, When you look at what Callum Hudson-Odoi has done and he’s a year younger. read also:‘Why Saka will make England’s 2021 European Championship squad’ “The contract he signed, Saka’s representatives will be saying: ‘Why should I sign for any less?’ “I believe he will sign but I do think him and his reps are doing the right thing by dragging it out to get the best deal they can.

Apart from 2011 final, 2016 WT20 tie against Oz my favourite: Virat Kohli

first_imgMUMBAI: Prolific India batsman Virat Kohli has been quite vocal about reminiscing the day when Team India, under the leadership of M.S. Dhoni, lifted the 2011 World Cup beating Sri Lanka in the summit clash on April 2. The win had ended India’s 28-year-old wait for the coveted trophy.In addition to that glorious moment at the Wankhede, Kohli also has another match that he will always remember — the 2016 World T20 quarter-final game against Australia in Mohali played on March 27 — where his unbeaten 82 helped the Men in Blue snatch a thrilling six-wicket win with five balls to spare and enter the semi-finals of the tournament. “Apart from the 2011 finals, my other favourite match from the atmosphere and importance of the game point of view, would be the 2016 T20 quarter-finals against Australia in Mohali,” Kohli said while speaking on Star Sports ‘Cricket Connected’ show. However, India had to face a crushing seven-wicket defeat at the hands of West Indies in the semi-final. The cricketing activities at the moment remain suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has wreaked havoc across the world. Kohli, the current India skipper, has admitted the “magical” atmosphere will be missing if the cricket season currently stalled by the COVID-19 pandemic resumes in empty stadiums. “It’s quite a possible situation, it might happen, I honestly don’t know how everyone is going to take that because we all are used to playing in front of so many passionate fans,” Kohli said. “Things will still go on, but I doubt that one will feel that magic happening inside because of the atmosphere that was created.” IANS Also Read: None more unbeatable than Novak Djokovic at his best: Todd Martinlast_img read more

Women’s basketball: UW picks up second Big Ten win despite sloppy offensive play

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team scratched and clawed their way to a low-scoring victory 53-41 over Rutgers University Saturday. The Badgers won, but the game was far from an offensive clinic.Both squads shot poorly throughout the game and struggled to find an offensive rhythm. The shooting percentages were not pretty on either side, with UW going 36.1 percent from the floor and Rutgers shooting 27.1 percent.Emily Hamer/The Badger HeraldWomen’s basketball: Badgers desperate for a win with Rutgers in the crosshairsThe University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team (6-20, 1-12 Big Ten) will square off against Rutgers University (6-20, 3-10) in Read…UW won the 3-point shooting battle, edging the Scarlet Knights from the arc by 7.5 percent. This deep ball was one of the keys that propelled the Badgers to victory.The Badgers doubled Rutgers’ 3-point total, connecting on six shots compared to three for Rutgers. The Badgers found their real offensive advantage, however, at the free throw line. UW went 21 for 27 from the charity stripe while Rutgers finished 12 for 16 from the line.That three-basket advantage from beyond the 3-point line and 9 more points generated by free throws made up for a sloppy night with plenty of turnovers.The Badgers and the Scarlet Knights both struggled to contain their turnovers as they each logged more than 20 by the final whistle. Free throws and 3-pointers allowed UW the victory.Emily Hamer/The Badger HeraldThe Badgers’ effort on defense, however, shouldn’t be overlooked.UW held Rutgers’ leading scorer, Shrita Parker, to 16 points on 5 for 16 shooting. The Badgers knew coming in that Parker was the engine for the Scarlet Knights’ offense, and if they could contain her they could also stymie their opponent’s entire offensive attack.Only one other Rutgers player had more than 11 points, as the Badgers did a good job creating turnovers and disrupting offensive flow.Avayana Young’s and Cayla McMorris’ strong performances led the UW offense. Young led the Badgers in scoring with 14 points while also contributing six rebounds. McMorris, the only other Badger in double digits, scored 10 points.Emily Hamer/The Badger HeraldMen’s basketball: Wisconsin trumps Maryland 71-60 in Big Ten battleA second-half offensive explosion and stingy defense led the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team to a 71-60 win over Read…Bench production was another offensive key for the Badgers as four bench players combined for 16 points. The Rutgers bench only had 5 points.Despite losing both the turnover and rebounding battles, UW still had enough of an offense push to finish on top.
