PSG breaks its hex with the eighth Champions

first_imgThose of Favre settled for 20 minutes in the Parc des Princes, but without disturbing Keylor Navas. Sancho and Hazard were always Dortmund’s options to come out on the counterattack, but the German team gave the impression of being very conservative. He did not look for the 0-1 and he only closed pass lines to avoid that Neymar received comfortable. Cavani had the clearest chance at 25, but Burki avoided 1-0 with a great save.PSG turned the tie before the break thanks to two errors by the rival. Neymar’s 1-0 lead, the Madrid academy player Achraf loses the mark very easily, and On Bernat’s second goal, Dortmund’s central defenders were uncoordinated, allowing Sarabia to receive a legal position and assist the left-back.In the second part, PSG began to catch the result of the match. The 2-0 put the Parisians in quarters, and although it had some chance of danger, Dortmund gradually grew. Tuchel entered Kurzawa as winger to endure the result, Emre Can was expelled from a fight with Neymar and there was hardly time for anything else. The party was life or death for PSG. No public because of the coronavirus, and with a Tuchel gambling the position, the Parisians were forced to win to avoid another bump in the Champions League. The German left Mbappé on the bench (he was in doubt until the last minute), gave Sarabia the title and placed Paredes in the center of the field, next to Gueye. The losses of Thiago Silva, Verratti and Meunier already in themselves conditioned the initial approach. Favre, meanwhile, repeated the three-way system from the first leg. After three consecutive years falling in the knockout stages of the Champions League, PSG broke its hex after defeating Dortmund 2-0 and trailing 2-1 in the first leg in Germany. Neymar scored the first and Bernat signed the victory before the break. Goals1-0, 27 ‘: Neymar, 2-0, 45 ‘: Bernat ChangesKylian Mbappe (63 ‘, Sarabia), Brandt (68 ‘, T. Hazard), Gio Reyna (70 ‘, Witsel), Layvin Kurzawa (78 ‘, Say María), Gotze (86 ‘, Achraf Hakimi), Nianzou Tanguy Kouassi (91 ‘, Walls) It was not a brilliant first part in Paris. The lack of public was evident in the intensity that both teams printed for 45 minutes. The Parisians returned for an instant to seeing ghosts with Neymar, after a bad fall from the Brazilian in the 8th minute that left him uncertain for several minutes due to a blow to the shoulder.

Chino earns rout

first_img When he finally returned to the field Thursday night, the Chino star running back made the most of his fresh start, rushing for 120 yards and three touchdowns in the Cowboys’ 35-6 win over Silverado at John Monger Stadium. “Man,” Stanford said, surveying the emptying field with a wistful look. “It’s just great to be back.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Silverado didn’t think it was so great to see Stanford or defensive back Ryan McFoy, who had been serving the same penalty for their roles in an altercation at school. Chino (4-1) quickly built a 21-0 lead via two Stanford scores and a 1-yard quarterback sneak by Art Garcia, and Silverado entered halftime without much to be happy about. The Cowboys extended their advantage on a 5-yard touchdown run by Lucas Barbosa, and the defense didn’t allow the Hawks (2-3) to score until there was 7:05 remaining in the third quarter. “I think this will be an experience that they’ll remember for the rest of their lives – playing someone really damn good,” Silverado coach Carl Posey said. “When Chino lost last week, that was really bad news for us.” Posey once played for Monger, the Chino coach, while the two were at Don Lugo. CHINO – During his two-week suspension from the game he loved, R.J. Stanford winced every time he saw a football game, whether it was high school, college or the NFL. The mere sight of pigskin caused Stanford to reach for the remote. “I’d turn it to cartoons, anything,” he said. “Just something happy.” center_img “He’s the best coach I ever had,” Posey said. “The guy’s incredible, he really is.” Posey then used the latter sentence to describe Stanford, McFoy and several other Cowboys. Monger, a vibrant personality who doesn’t mind putting his arm around someone he has just met, said getting two of his key players back was uplifting for the team. “We want them to do real well,” he said. “We’re just trying to save them some money when they graduate (with college scholarships). “They were penalized for it, but it’s a small issue.” That was good news for the recruiters from four Pacific-10 Conference schools who Monger said attended. Those scouts don’t want to see Stanford having to watch cartoons again. “I loved every minute of (being back),” Stanford said. “I never want to experience that again. You know, I wasn’t sure whether I’d even be able to play football anymore. … I’ll never take it for granted now.” There weren’t many highlights for Silverado, but one play accounted for more than a third of the team’s rushing yards. Shortly before halftime, with the Hawks backed up deep in their own territory, Posey called a risky play. “I asked the guys, `Do you want to be conservative, or do you want to take a chance?’ ” he said. “They said, `No, no, let’s take a chance.’ “ Posey then ordered the team to try a reverse out of their own end zone, a play the team had never even practiced. Fortunately, senior Justin Hammond took control and ran for 63 yards. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
