‘Seal the deal’: Flick urges Bayern to secure title

first_imgBayern Munich coach Hansi Flick wants his side to “seal the deal” and wrap up an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title on Tuesday with victory at relegation-threatened Werder Bremen. Poland striker Robert Lewandowski needs one more Bundesliga goal to set a new personal best in a season Top scorer Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Mueller, one shy of the record for assists in a single season, are both available again after missing Bayern’s 2-1 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach due to suspension. Victory at Bremen, where Bayern have won all 12 games over the last decade, will clinch a record-extending 30th league title, and the first leg of a potential treble in Flick’s debut season in charge. “We want to finish the job on Tuesday. That is our goal. We have an excellent run and want to continue our winning streak,” said Flick, who stepped in when Niko Kovac was sacked last November. “The target is to win again in Bremen. We want to just seal the deal.” Bayern have won their last 10 league games and another victory on Tuesday would leave them an unassailable 10 points clear before second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who have three matches left, host strugglers Mainz on Wednesday. “It’s our plan to bring it (the trophy) back home,” said midfielder Leon Goretzka. Lewandowski, the league’s leading scorer with 30 goals this term, netted twice while Mueller, who is sitting on 20 assists, also got on the scoresheet when Bayern thrashed Bremen 6-1 when the sides met in December. Poland star Lewandowski has struck 45 goals in all competitions this campaign and needs one more to establish a new Bundesliga personal best, having also reached the 30-goal plateau in 2015-16 and 2016-17. Despite laboured displays in their last two games, including a 2-1 semi-final win over Frankfurt in the German Cup, Bayern have a legitimate shot at landing a second treble in seven years. First, Bayern, who are also well within reach of the Champions League quarter-finals, must take care of a Bremen side fighting for Bundesliga survival. Bremen have taken 10 points from a possible 18 recently, boosting their hopes with a 5-1 rout of bottom side Paderborn on Saturday, but head coach Florian Kohfeldt played down any talk of an upset. “There’s no reason to go into this with any kind of euphoria. We haven’t won anything yet and we’re still in a relegation zone,” said the 37-year-old Kohfeldt, who has lost all five games against Bayern. Player to watch: Andre Silva Loading… The Portugal international has struck a rich vein of form since the season’s resumption, with a return of six goals in seven appearances – more than any other player in the league. The 24-year-old striker is rebuilding his young career while on loan in Germany, after struggling with AC Milan following a big-money move from Porto in 2017. He has scored 10 times in 22 Bundesliga appearances with Eintracht, and came off the bench to net twice and grab an assist in Saturday’s 4-1 win at Hertha Berlin. Key stats 17 – yellow cards received this season by Paderborn’s Klaus Gjasula, the most in a single Bundesliga campaign. 19 – longest winning run in the German top-flight, a record set by Bayern under Pep Guardiola in 2013-14. 106 – away wins in the Bundesliga this term, more than in any other previous year.

Hamilton on top in Austria despite protest over his Mercedes

first_imgLewis Hamilton began his quest for a record-equalling seventh world title by topping the times Friday as Formula One roared back with a full day’s practice and an official technical protest of his Mercedes car at the belated season-opening Austrian Grand Prix. Back in black: Lewis Hamilton steers his car to the day’s top time Three months after the cancelled traditional curtain-raiser in Australia, and six months on from the last race, it was business as usual from the dominant newly-repainted ‘black arrows’ Mercedes men with Valtteri Bottas completing a familiar one-two as the sport re-ignited after its longest off-season. “It’s great to be back,” said Hamilton, who is seeking to draw level with seven-time champion Michael Schumacher in the record books. “It’s been a long time coming, so it feels great to feel the new car for the first time since February. “It’s quite a big difference to the one we got to test at Silverstone and I don’t remember what I was like in February, to be honest. It was so long ago.”Advertisement Loading… Read Also: Lampard, Ancelotti call for VAR ‘reflection‘“For a long time, we’ve been planning for the livery change for the car, for the (driver) suit change and I have also designed my helmet in black,” said Hamilton, speaking on a video released on social media.“Normally, my helmet is white, my suit is white and obviously the car is in silver. This is why – it’s the whole reason that the helmet has changed its colour and the suit and the car.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 House on the hill: Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in action“So we’ll take it with a pinch of salt, try to improve the car tonight and come back with it tomorrow.”Hamilton, in commanding form in both the morning and afternoon sessions, was quickest in one minute and 4.304 seconds to lead Bottas by 0.197 seconds and third-placed Sergio Perez, in Racing Point’s ‘pink Mercedes’, by 0.657.Sebastian Vettel, in his last season with Ferrari, was fourth for the Italian outfit ahead of McLaren-bound Daniel Ricciardo of Renault and Lando Norris of McLaren.Lance Stroll, in the second Racing Point, modelled on the hugely-successful 2019 title-winning Mercedes, was seventh ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc in the second Ferrari and his future team-mate Carlos Sainz of McLaren.Verstappen revealed afterwards that his performance was heavily curtailed by running with a broken front wing shortly before his Red Bull team confirmed, on a day of hectic action, that they have lodged an official protest over Mercedes’ controversial dual-axis steering (DAS) system.The system allows drivers to adjust the toe angle of the car by pushing or pulling the steering wheel in the cockpit.It was used by both Mercedes drivers on Friday when the teams all carried the sport’s ‘We Race As One’ pro-diversity message on their cars.The long-awaited track action brought an end to Formula One’s longest break following the lifting of lockdown restrictions in Europe caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.Hamilton, who has been an outspoken supporter of the campaign for equality and diversity since the death of American George Floyd last month, revealed a statement Black Lives Matter helmet before climbing into his Mercedes.His Mercedes W11 car was also running in revised new black livery, instead of the team’s traditional silver, with a message to ‘End Racism’ on the halo.center_img Hamilton said he would take his initial supremacy over his competitors “with a pinch of salt” after a performance that appeared to send a message to his rivals and a power boost to the Black Lives Matter movement that he and his team have embraced and supported. “What’s positive is the car felt good today,” he said. “It definitely feels like in general, compared to last year, we have continued to improve it and that is a positive.” Speaking before rivals Red Bull protested officially at Mercedes’ innovative new steering system, he added that it was difficult to say if he had an edge over his rivals after just one day. “That’s difficult to say – it’s definitely looking good, but you can never take too much from practice and, if you look at some of the other teams, they were maybe down on power modes or up on power modes or fuel or whatever it may be. – ‘Pinch of salt’ – Promoted Content2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearLaugh, Cry, Or Just Relax With The Best Series Streaming On HBO10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemHere Are The Top 10 Tiniest Mobile Phones On The Planet!10 Dystopian Movie Worlds You’d Never Want To Live In8 Ways Drones Will Automate Our FutureBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made8 Ways Drones Are Shaping Our FutureYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of Anime6 Major TV Characters We Were Relieved To See Leaving The Showlast_img read more

In total, more than 20 FIFA proceedings have been opened in Switzerland over the past five years into allegations of corruption and vote-buying, and allegations over the awarding of television rights contracts. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 FIFA president Gianni Infantino will “respect any decision by the ethics committee”, world football’s governing body said Monday after Swiss authorities opened criminal proceedings against him last week. A Swiss special prosecutor has launched proceedings against Infantino, as part of an investigation into suspected collusion with the country’s attorney general, Michael Lauber. Both have denied any wrongdoing. “I’ve no doubt that Gianni Infantino would respect any decision by the ethics commission,” FIFA deputy secretary general Alasdair Bell told a video news conference. “We don’t see any evidence of criminal or unethical behaviour,” he said. FIFA on Sunday insisted Infantino would continue to fulfil his duties as president and blasted the Swiss probe. It gave no indication on Monday whether or not its ethics committee had instigated proceedings against Infantino. “The ethics committee will have to come to its own conclusion… In every case, it needs to be tested, if there’s something serious, there’s a case for suspension,” said Bell. Questioned about Infantino’s absence during Monday’s video conference, Bell said the FIFA chief “will be available and will speak in order to clear his name.” He added: “FIFA and Gianni Infantino have absolutely nothing to hide, we want to be transparent. There’s no factual basis for this criminal procedure.” Infantino and Lauber are said to have held a series of meetings in 2016 and 2017. Two such meetings were initially exposed in 2018 by “Football Leaks”, a cross-border investigation by several European news organisations. In a statement Thursday, Swiss authorities said special prosecutor Stefan Keller “has reached the conclusion that…there are indications of criminal conduct” in relation to meetings between Infantino, Lauber and another official, Rinaldo Arnold. “This concerns abuse of public office, breach of official secrecy, assisting offenders and incitement to these acts,” the authorities said. Lauber, who offered his resignation on July 24, was in charge of Switzerland’s probe into the towering corruption scandal that exploded at the heart of Zurich-based FIFA in 2015. But he was forced to recuse himself from the investigation in June 2019, following media revelations that he had held several undeclared meetings with Infantino during the probe.last_img read more

Brown wins IMCA RaceSaver Sprint showdown at Susquehanna

first_imgDave Brown won the Saturday IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car feature, co-sanctioned by the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series and the Pennsylvania Sprint Series, at Susquehanna Speedway. (Photo by Erika Palmai Wagner)By Erika Palmai WagnerYORK HAVEN, Pa. (May 20) – Dave Brown took the checkered flag Saturday at Susquehanna Speedway, for the ninth time in his Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series career.Tyler Reeser, Cale Reigle, Darren Miller and Kyle Ganoe completed the top five in the first IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car event co-sanctioned this season by MASS and the Pennsylvania Sprint Series.Reigle took control from the start and led the first 11 of 20 circuits. Brown started fourth and ad­vanced quickly, using the very top of the race track.By halfway, Reigle caught up to lapped traffic, with Brown lurking closely behind.  Brown stayed in the ultra-high groove to take the lead away the next time around. Reeser also made the most of the top line and took over second on the last lap.“With most of the field leaving the top side open, it was less patience and more of a hammer-down mindset that I was thinking when getting around the slower cars,” Brown said.  “I just knew the top was the fast way around and I wasn’t going to move down to try and pass any lapped cars, just in case there was someone close behind.”Brown was one of 16 MASS regulars who made the haul to the Central Pennsylvania speedway. Entries totaled 34.On Sunday, May 28, the Engler Machine and Tool-sponsored Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series will make the first of four appearances at Grandview Speedway.Feature results – 1.
