Mariano puts Jovic in trouble

first_imgMariano is the player who least counts for Zidane and, despite that, neither throws the towel nor makes it easy for Jovic. The tip came out of the dungeon in which he has confined his technician to play three minutes in the Classic, who guessed the garbage, and transformed them in a great goal which also has consequences in the historical pulse between Real Madrid and Barcelona … The last League with so few points was the Burning Nail League, 2006-07, which was resolved agonically on the last day with a tie at 76 points and that he went to Cibeles because Madrid had won him the goal average particular to Barça. An intangible element that nobody remembers until you need it. Well, if white people need that virtual bullet again, they have it in their holster. The triumph grants the goal average to the whites and that stampede in the jungle of Mariano that was 2-0 he returns to Madrid the historical record of goals in La Liga. The whites are again ahead of Barça, 6,152 to 6,151. They also break the tie in the overall in the Classics: now they are 73 Madrid triumphs, for 72 culés.His case is almost a mysteryMore than one in Valdebebas does not explain why Mariano plays so little and many more why he did not go in January to seek fortune in another place being, as it is, in a moment of absolute physical fullness. Mariano has one hundred meter runner’s thighs and the boiling blood, the opposite pole to Jovic. “Where others don’t want to play those minutes, Mariano goes out to eat the world”, Álvaro Benito gave in The Partidazo. “He has given everything in three minutes,” admitted Zidane, who with everything and with that escaped him in the flash interview what “Jovic is ahead”. He confirmed it later at the press conference. “Mariano is the third striker”, he said, although Jovic was not summoned to the Classic by technical decision. Mariano has been invisible to his coach and has only had 47 minutes, but with the moral triumph of marking Ter Stegen.If Vinicius is the mood of this Madrid, Mariano is offered as partenaire energizing. In a team with goal problems, which has to be held 11 days as leader and traced in Champions in the EtihadIt doesn’t seem like a small thing.last_img read more

Tsetsi steps into the ring

first_imgTsetsi Davis, one of the crowd favourites over the years in the Wray & Nephew Contender boxing series, makes his debut tonight against American Courtney McLeave at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium.Davis has been able to fight as both a welterweight and a middleweight in the competition and has actually been a finalist.At age 38, he now has what is regarded as his last chance to take the top prize of $2 million this year and has said repeatedly since being selected that he believes that this will be his time to shine.He enters the ring with a record of 14 victories and five losses, while his American opponent McLeave, is a 21-year old boxer who has been a professional for a year, and has a one-win and two-loss record. Based on these figures, Davis goes into the fight with a huge advantage as he has much more experience than his opponent.SEEDING METHODThe method of determining the fights in the preliminary round this year is by a draw. Previously, there were challenges in which two teams competed and a boxer from the winning team was allowed to select his opponent. This year, the boxers on both teams were seeded and the top four seeds draw an opponent from the bottom four of the opposing team.By this method, unless there is an upset, the better boxers go on to the quarter-finals and challenge each other for the semi-final and then final spots. The runner-up in the competition takes home $500,000, while third gets $250,000 and fourth $200,000.The first week of competition saw that fight end in only 55 seconds after the young American, Xzaviar Ford, tore a tendon in his right shoulder and could not continue to fight. There was great disappointment in the auditorium after this premature end.Last week, spectators saw a much better fight as highly rated Demarcos Corley defeated Iwan Azore from Guyana on points, by using his superior boxing skills and ring savvy to good advantage.McLeave’s camp is confident that their fighter can hold his own against the more experienced Davis, while the Davis camp is quietly confident.”We have seen his record and will be going into the fight confident of victory, but we are not taking anything for granted. We want a win and that is what we are going for. We just have to wait to see what he brings to the table,” a representative from their camp said.Jamaica at 9:30 p.m.last_img read more

Wolves steamroll Cavs behind Butler, Wiggins

first_imgOSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson MOST READ Ex-wife of slain NBA player agrees to face Tennessee charges Cavaliers: Kyle Korver, who had 19 points off the bench, connected four times from behind the arc and passed Paul Pierce for fourth place on the NBA’s all-time list in 3-pointers made with 2,147. Ray Allen (2,973), Reggie Miller (2,560) and Jason Terry (2,244) are ahead of him.Timberwolves: After shooting 52 percent from the field, the Wolves improved to 12-2 when making at least half their shots.TAKE THATJames chased down Jones to swat his fast-break layup attempt into the seats in the second quarter, following with a stare-down and some barbs traded with Aaron Brooks on the Wolves bench.Jones got his revenge a little later in the same period on a similar play, throwing down a dunk just in time before James arrived to try for another block. That was just the second career dunk for Jones, whose first was last week.CROWD PLEASERThe game marked the fourth consecutive sellout of Target Center for the Timberwolves, their longest streak in nearly five years. Love, who was traded to the Cavs for Wiggins four seasons ago, was the recipient of several rounds of boos in the first quarter.UP NEXTCavaliers: Play at Toronto on Thursday, the fourth stop on a five-game trip.Timberwolves: Face Oklahoma City on Wednesday in the third contest of a five-game homestand. The only time the Timberwolves have made the playoffs during the reign of King James was in 2004, his rookie year, when they went all the way to the Western Conference finals. James and the Cavs lost here in his second season, too, but that was it until now. In many of those annual visits, too, he barely had to break a sweat.This is a different pack of Wolves, though, with the arrival of the tough-minded veterans Butler, Gibson and Jamal Crawford to join the still-developing stars Towns and Wiggins.Neither team could’ve seen this outcome coming, though.Kevin Love, J.R. Smith and Isaiah Thomas, three-fifths of the starting five, were a combined 0 for 18 from the field in the first half. Thomas was ejected in the third quarter for a flagrant-two foul on Wiggins, for clotheslining him in the jaw as he drove to the basket. This was Thomas’ third game back from the hip injury that kept him out until the new year, having rested once. He had nine points in 19 minutes.TIP-INSADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone James had just 10 points on 4-for-8 shooting, taking his first loss at Minnesota since Feb. 17, 2005. Cleveland fell behind by as much as 41 points in the third quarter after a dunk by Wiggins set up by a driving pass by Tyus Jones, who had grabbed his own miss from 3-point range.Butler had plenty to do with that, contributing nine assists and eight rebounds before resting during the fourth quarter, too. The Wolves led 69-42 at halftime, matching their largest first-half score from just two nights ago, after a rainbow 3-pointer from the top of the key by Butler brought the fans to their feet.
