LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 10, 2020 The Madrid derby will capitalize attention in Jeddah on Sunday but it is not yet guaranteed that King Abdullah Stadium will be filled to see who, Real Madrid or Atlético, is the first winner of this new Super Cup four and in Arabic soil.According to information provided by the Spanish Federation, by mid-afternoon this Friday 6,017 locations were still available for the grand final. Less than ten percent of the total capacity (62,345) and the attendance is expected to be similar to the semifinal between Atlético and Barcelona, which brought together 58,410 fans and amateurs, this important nuance in this controversial Spanish Super Cup on Saudi soil. Saudi Arabia has run out of an official Classic but will have a derby. The absence of Messi, the big star of the tournament, remains tugged (Atlético-Barça beat Valencia-Real Madrid by 18,000 spectators) but the schedule will be more benign for the Saudis, at 9:00 p.m. local time and the Zidane duel- Simeone has gone on to take the leading role of the final as a great claim. The stars, this time, are the technicians. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 10, 2020
Photo: EFE Real Madrid put an end to their bad streak at home after defeating Kirolbet Baskonia (70-69) in a very close game that was decided in the last seconds thanks to the contribution of Facundo Campazzo and Trey Thompkins, who led the demanding victory on day 23 of the Euroleague.The team of Pablo Laso did not want more concessions before his audience after the 31 consecutive victories until his first setback a couple of weeks ago and he put on the overalls to end a Baskonia that sold the defeat very expensive. The Vitorians sent in many phases of the meeting and only an incomprehensible action of Stauskas allowed to break the balance in the electronic two seconds from the end.The meringues made Efes and Joventut forget a lot of work although they were far from the brightness and the fuss. Campazzo – with 10 points and 11 assists – was the leader of a triumph he had in Thompkins for his best ally. The American, very inspired, left until 20 units, in addition to participating with six rebounds.On the other hand, the whole of Dusko Ivanovic followed the pattern that led him to win in the capital on January 19. Indoor balls, strength in the rebound and a success of almost 40% in three shots. The formula paid off at startup (14-19, min.11) and also a few seconds after the break (30-36). Real Madrid wins in a tight win after three losses at home However, there was born the response of Real Madrid – who abandoned his efforts from the perimeter – to get a better circulation of ball and baskets in the paint. Gabriel Deck perfectly understood what Laso asked for and the capitalist team managed its first advantages three minutes after the resumption (43-42). All of them did not exceed five margin points, something that became clear shortly after.Baskonia went further and Shields (14 points) and Shengelia (12) did not give up despite the onslaught of a Palace not as full as usual. Janning also exceeded ten points (11) and the score began to move like an accordion that did not quite stretch until that final minute where everything could have happened.Dragic missed a free kick that left Madrid ahead (66-65) and there came two unsuccessful actions for the home, but the rebound – for Ivanovic’s despair – was white. Campazzo put land in between and Shengelia replied in just two seconds to bring her life to life. Thompkins scored and then Shields (69-69), but Stauskas spoiled the entire plan with an unexplained foul within two seconds.Campazzo scored the first free throw and missed the second so Baskonia didn’t have time to put together a play. Real Madrid took a hard-earned victory and regains the good path in a match that allows it to maintain second place in the regular Euroleague league and complicates the existence of the Basque team.DATA SHEET.–OUTCOME: REAL MADRID, 70 – KIROLBET BASKONIA, 69.–EQUIPMENT.REAL MADRID: Campazzo (10), Causeur (5), Taylor (7), Randolph (6) and Tavares (8) – initial quintet–; Llull (-), Mickey (4), Rudy Fernández (-), Deck (10), Thompkins (20).KIROLBET BASKONIA: Christon (6), Janning (11), Shields (14), Shengelia (12) and Eric (8) – initial quintet–; Stauskas (-), García (5), Fall (2), Diop (-), Polonara (2) and Dragic (9).–PARTIALS: 14-19, 23-19, 16-11, 17-20.– ARBITRATORS: Pukl, Mogulkoc and Mantyla.–PAVILION: WiZink Center 8,465 spectators
“Mourinho gets older “As for the situation of Tottenham, who experienced a new defeat in Premier, Berbatov sees no danger in the future of José Mourinho. “Mourinho is already being questioned but in my opinion you have to be with him. The club has not signed him but believes he can reverse the situation“The Bulgarian also emphasizes that age now influences the forms of Mourinho:” It reminds me of the last stage of Ferguson that I lived, is calmer in the field, we all grow older and change, is where Mourinho is now“.“I wouldn’t be surprised if they soon pay 200 million euros for Haaland”Berbatov, who was one of the best strikers of the 2000s Premier, highlights the future of fashion player Erling Haaland. “It has the potential to fill the gap left by Ronaldo and Messi. It is fair to say that may be the successor of Messi and Cristiano, not only him, also Mbappé“says the Betfair ambassador.Regarding the future of the Dortmund forward, Berbatov is clear that he should not leave Germany right now. “He is in the right place and is improving, marking and giving passes. Would you do the same in Madrid or United? It is where it has to be. It would be a mistake to leave. You have to let him play although it is also true that I would not be surprised if they soon pay 200 million for it and sell it, “he says. Resign Berbatov, Manchester United and Tottenham legend spoke to Betfair of one of the most shocking images of the season. The player of his former team, Eric Dier, jumped into the stands to defend a relative and, supposedly, try to attack some fans who had insulted his relatives. For Berbatov the scene, which may have a historical sanction, is understandable: “The players are also human. Dier does not react like this if everything is calm“points.The Bulgarian highlights the tension that players have to endure on the pitch. “It’s very easy to say: ‘Fuck, I could do better’, but believe me it’s not easy. I respect what he did because if it was me, he would probably do the same, although we have to avoid things like this because people can take advantage of your emotions, “says the Betfair ambassador.Berbatov is clear that “if someone goes to your family you have to protect them but it shouldn’t happen. People should control their emotions with the players and especially with their families.“The English federation now investigates the facts and will make a decision in the next few days.

Amid stringent ‘security measures,’ the much awaited 2016 national examinations of the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) is in its third day sitting today, with students gearing up to take chemistry and history.But this year’s exam had been embroiled in a series of uncertainties; couple with the reported stealing of the testing materials.Dele G. Gboto, WAEC Head of Test Administration, has meanwhile advised all registered 12th graders to prepare themselves and go to the selected testing centers with only their pens and pencils, adding that students should carry, “nothing else, especially electronic devices as doing so will disqualify any candidate caught.”Despite the earlier fiasco caused by the theft of exam papers from a storage in Konola Academy, Kakata the WAEC examinations began last Monday throughout the country with 46,000 students sitting for one subject: mathematics.On the second day, yesterday, students tackled geography and biology exam questions. Reports across the country and from various campuses indicate that there has been so far a smooth administration of the examinations as students eagerly focused on the test subjects.At the Boatswain Junior High School campus, students who are taking the exams are doing as well as they can, according to a sample of students interviewed yesterday.“We are doing our best and I think we are sure that we are doing the right thing to get the results that we need,” said a female student from the Assembly of God of Caldwell, who is writing her exams at the Boatswain Junior High School campus.Reports from Grand Cape Mount, Nimba and Margibi County were also positive with students engaged in their exams with a sense of dedication.“Students are cautiously and religiously working on their exam papers,” according to reports from Nimba County.Information gathered from the various venues indicates that students who are writing their exams have decided to do all they can to get the job done so that they can look at the future and see what they need to do to further their lives.“They are not even discussing the recent postponement of the examinations caused by leaked test papers,” according to our Nimba correspondent, Ishmael Menkor.The exams will continue on Thursday with students writing physics and economics and many reports indicate that students are in a marathon rush to get the exams successfully behind them.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
