It happens sometimes.”Luis Suarez scored twice as Barcelona advanced 4-1 on aggregate after being held to a 1-1 draw in the first leg of the semifinals at Camp Nou three weeks ago.

They scored with their first shot on goal, and then with their second shot on goal. They hurt us when they had their chance.”Barcelona will be trying to win an unprecedented fifth straight Copa title in the May 25 final in Seville. Madrid hasn’t made it to the Copa final since it won its last title in 2014 against Barcelona. It hasn’t defeated its rival in five matches in all competitions, since the Spanish Super Cup in 2017.This year’s other finalist will be decided on Thursday, when Valencia hosts Real Betis after a 2-2 draw in the first leg in Seville.It was the second of three matches between Real Madrid and Barcelona in less than a month. The rivals will also play each other on Saturday in the Spanish league, with Barcelona nine points in front of Madrid in the standings.Another setback against Barcelona will practically end Madrid’s title hopes in the league, leaving the Champions League as the only competition in which it can succeed in its first season without Cristiano Ronaldo in nearly a decade.After conceding at home, Barcelona needed to score at the Bernabeu to have any chance of advancing, and it didn’t look good for the Catalan club as it was outplayed by Madrid throughout the first half. The hosts created most of the scoring chances, including a couple of clear ones for young Brazilian forward Vinicius Junior. He failed to get a shot off in a one-on-one situation, then missed over the crossbar from close range.ADVERTISEMENT Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Barcelona forward Luis Suarez, center, celebrates after scoring his side’s opening goal during the Copa del Rey semifinal second leg soccer match between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona at the Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, Spain, Wednesday Feb. 27, 2019. (AP Photo/Andrea Comas)MADRID— Real Madrid couldn’t put Barcelona away when it had the chance, and ended up being dealt a hard blow by its biggest rival.In the first of two consecutive games between the Spanish powerhouses at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Barcelona weathered a dominant first half by Madrid and then scored three times after the break for a 3-0 win Wednesday and a spot in the Copa del Rey final for a sixth straight season.ADVERTISEMENT Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

Bayern maintain iron-grip as Leipzig falter

first_img0Shares0000Leipzig’s head coach Ralph Hasenhuettl’s squad have struggled to meet the demands of having to play virtually every three days in recent weeks © AFP/File / ROBERT MICHAELBERLIN, Germany, Dec 13 – RB Leipzig risk falling off the pace in the pack chasing run-away Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich with their coach Ralph Hasenhuettl admitting his side is flagging.“We’re running close to empty and you can see the team is torturing itself,” said Hasenhuettl after his team scraped a 1-1 draw on Tuesday to just hold onto second place in the table. The Austrian’s youthful squad have struggled to meet the demands of having to play virtually every three days in recent weeks, but now have just one game left before the Bundesliga breaks for winter.Last week’s 2-1 home defeat against Besiktas meant they bowed out of the Champions League in the group stages and will face Napoli in the last 32 of the Europa League in February.“It is especially difficult for our younger players. In this three-day rhythm, which goes on and on, you lose your power at some point,” admitted midfielder Kevin Kampl.Leipzig are at risk of being caught by their league chasing rivals.They have taken only five points in as many games while Bayern have tightened their iron-grip on first place by winning seven of their last eight Bundesliga games.Jupp Heynckes’ Bavarians could open a ten-point gap if they beat bottom side Cologne and third-placed Schalke fail to beat Augsburg on Wednesday.Leipzig are currently on 28 points, but Schalke, Dortmund, Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Moenchengladbach are all within three points behind.In Wolfsburg on Tuesday, Leipzig struggled to get back on level terms after Paul Verhaegh slotted an early penalty for the hosts.Hasenhuettl’s side finally got the break when Marcel Halstenburg equalised on 52 minutes.However in the closing stages, goalkeeper Peter Gulasci pulled of a string of saves as Divock Origi, on loan from Liverpool, nearly restored Wolfsburg’s lead.Leipzig then had defender Dayot Upamecano sent off in injury time for a second yellow card and the French teenager is suspended for Sunday’s visit of Hertha Berlin in Leipzig’s final Bundesliga game of 2017.“Against, Hertha, we want to show some of our old strength again,” said Kampl.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
