Ronaldo solves 100 problems for Juventus – Sarri

first_img “I would prefer to concede a goal on the counter-attack than in our own penalty area. “Putting Higuain on at 2-1 was a clear message to the team: let’s end the game.” Victory saw Juve move four points clear of second-placed Inter, although Lazio are also a threat a further two points back but with a game in hand. However, Sarri is concerned by neither the Nerazzurri nor the in-form capital club.

The Portuguese was a defensive contributor, too, yet he was outjumped by Andreas Cornelius as Parma briefly pulled level. Sarri is happy to take the rough with the smooth when it comes to his star man, though. “We have a champion who sometimes creates a problem for you but solves 100 of them,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “The rest of the team has to revolve around him.” Ronaldo had chances for further goals, and Sarri was frustrated with his team’s inability to extend their lead and set up a straightforward finale. “The mental intensity can be improved, even the management of certain moments of the matches,” he said. “I don’t even like dribbling in our own half in the last few minutes.last_img read more

EPL: Burnley dare Champions Liverpool

first_imgLiverpool vs. Burnley Venue: Anfield Stadium Kick off: 3PMPremier League champions Liverpool could set more records tumbling when they welcome Burnley to Anfield this afternoon. Jurgen Klopp’s men are three wins away from setting a new points record but face a Burnley side who are still chasing European qualification for next season.Klopp’s line has not changed throughout a season in which notable records and landmarks have fallen with incredible regularity – he is not interested in breaking those records, only in winning football matches.Whether he regards it as important or not, three more wins from their four remaining games would be enough for Liverpool’s class of 2019-20 to etch their name into the history books as statistically English football’s most dominant team in a single season.Manchester City’s 2017-18 centurions currently hold most of the remaining available targets – most points, most wins and biggest title-winning margin – but those would be broken with the three more wins.Given how relentless they have been all season, most would expect the Reds to achieve that; they have room for one slip-up in matches against Burnley, Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle United, and crucially have now seemingly rediscovered their winning touch after their first major blip of the entire campaign. Wednesday night’s 3-1 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion saw them record back-to-back wins for the first time since February and move on to 30 for the season – already a joint club-record alongside the 1978-79 and 2018-19 campaigns.The result – which was not quite as straightforward as the scoreline suggests – also saw Liverpool end a woeful away run, but their record at home is faultless and they remain on course to become the first team to ever win every home game in a season.The Reds have won 17 from 17 so far this term and an unprecedented 24 in a row stretching back to January 2019, while it is now 57 games and more than three years since they last tasted a Premier League defeat at Anfield.A trip to the red half of Merseyside is just about the most difficult assignment in football at the moment, then, but Burnley arrive in good form themselves – and particularly away from home.Sean Dyche’s side have won back-to-back Premier League games on the road without conceding for the first time since May 2015, and have only lost one of their last six such outings. Indeed, Wednesday’s 1-0 triumph over West Ham United means that they have now amassed 13 points from their last six away games – as many as they had earned from their previous 16 such outings.The one defeat in that time was a heavy one at the hands of Manchester City, which does not bode well heading into a match against the only team better than City this season, but that is also their solitary league defeat in their last 12 home and away so they are clearly a difficult team to beat.European qualification is still very much on the agenda for Burnley with only two points separating them from seventh-placed Sheffield United, although there may be some fans keen to avoid that.Burnley finished seventh in 2017-18 to qualify for the Europa League but then finished 15th the following season – just scraping to the 40-point mark – and with such a small squad and reported friction over potential incomings it could be a big ask for them to juggle another competition.RelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea Not that Dyche will want his squad to hold back at all, and there is a very real chance that they could continue their fine form until the very end of the season with Norwich City and Brighton in their final two games.Matches against Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the meantime are likely to be more difficult, but Chelsea and Man City are the only top-half teams they have not taken points off already this season and so they will believe that they can pull off an upset at Anfield.Liverpool possible XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Keita, Fabinho, Milner, Salah, Firmino, Mane. Burnley possible XI: Pope, Bardsley, Long, Tarkowski, Taylor, Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil, Rodriguez, Wood.Tags: AnfieldBurnleyLiverpoolPremier Leaguelast_img read more

Windies continues to languish at bottom of ICC Test rankings

first_imgDUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CMC) — West Indies continues to languish at the bottom of the standings in the longest format of the game while cricketers from the region have made little progress in the player rankings.However, South Africa has moved up a few notches and pacer Dale Steyn has stormed back to the number one position in the latest ICC rankings released yesterday.West Indies, who recently lost a Test series against India 2-0, remained number eight in the rankings above Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.Their highest-ranked batsman is Darren Bravo who is in 28th position while Kemar Roach at number 23, is the region’s highest ranked bowler.Pakistan currently tops the team standings while there were no major changes in the list for batsmen, with Australia skipper Steve Smith leading the table.Steyn reclaims the number-one position for Test bowlers after producing a match-winning performance in the Centurion Test that helped his side complete a 204-run victory over New Zealand on Tuesday.Steyn, who grabbed five for 33 in the second innings in what was his 26th five-wicket haul, finished with match-figures of eight for 99 to regain the top slot.Meanwhile, the 1-0 series win has pushed South Africa up two places to fifth in the Team Rankings, while New Zealand slipped two places to seventh.last_img read more

Westhill girls volleyball repeats as state Class B champions

first_imgA different season, a different head coach, plenty of different players in important roles – but it was the same glorious and perfect result for the Westhill girls volleyball team.The Warriors’ defeated Ardsley in three sets Sunday at Glens Falls’ Cool Insuring Arena completed an undefeated run to a second consecutive New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class B championship.Despite the way it all ended, many differences could be drawn between this state title run and what Westhill accomplished in 2018, and none was bigger than the way it all transpired in Glens Falls. Westhill did get that sweep, 25-11 and 25-17. Meanwhile, Broadalbin-Perth had lost twice to Ardsley but swept Seaford, too, so at 3-3 the Warriors and Patriots would face off late Saturday night in a single-set tie-breaker.If the situation was stressful, Westhill never showed it, dominating Broadalbin-Perth 25-12 to earn its second straight trip to the best-of-ive-set state finals, where it would get another opportunity to face Ardsley.With players who had gone through the unique pressure of a championship match, the Warriors were the better team, using its fine all-around game to tame the Panthers 25-16 in the first set and 25-15 in the second set.Though the third set proved closer, the Warriors had little trouble closing it out. Breaking out of an 18-18 tie, Westhill got four consecutive points and, when Ardsley tried to answer, on match point Kate Heinrich put away the state championship clincher.Front-line hitter Sara Galante earned tournament MVP honors, with setter Sarah Schwartz and libero Gianna Militi each named to the All-Tournament team. A season ago, the Warriors breezed through the round-robin portion of the state final four, winning the first four sets to all but seal up a berth in the finals and not requiring any extra work prior to its four-set win over Owego in the championship round.That didn’t happen this time. From the outset, Westhill found itself under serious pressure as Ardsley, the Section I champions, claimed sets of 25-16 and 25-23, leaving the Warriors at 0-2.Next, against Broadalbin-Perth (Section II), Westhill rolled to a 25-14 win, only to drop the second set 25-21. Now at 1-3, the Warriors had to sweep Long Island champion Seaford to have any chance of staying alive.
