Liverpool will face Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield on Wednesday in the second matchday of the UEFA Champions League 2019-20. Salzburg are top of Group E after thrashing Genk 6-2 in their Champions League opener two weeks ago, while the Reds are under pressure to bounce back with a win after losing 2-0 at Napoli.Jurgen Klopp said Tuesday that he is determined that unfancied Salzburg spring no surprises on Liverpool as the long-time admirer of them. Teenage sensation Erling Braut Haaland scored a sensational hat-trick in the Genk mauling, and Liverpool are well acquainted with Salzburg’s development of young players, with the Reds duo Sadio Mane and Naby Keita both having had spells with Salzburg earlier in their careers. Liverpool will again look to their home ground as a lift, with Klopp’s men unbeaten at Anfield in the Premier League or Champions League since April 2017.On the other hand, Salzburg’s red-hot teenage striker Haaland will have the chance to measure himself against Liverpool’s dazzling collection of attackers, if he is fit to play. The 19-year-old has been ill and may not feature against the European champions but there will be many beyond the confines of Merseyside who pray that he is wrong.At 19 years and 58 days, Haaland became the third-youngest man to score a hat-trick in the Champions League since its revamp in 1992. Raul was just 18 years and 114 days when he did it in 1995 for Real Madrid against Ferencvaros while Wayne Rooney was 18 years and 340 days when he marked his debut in the competition with a treble for Manchester United against Fenerbahce in September 2004.Imposing Haaland, who stands 1.94m tall, has been in scintillating form since moving from Molde to Salzburg in January, has scored 17 times in 10 appearances.What time is kick-off?The game will kick-off at 12:30am IST on October 3.

Champions League: Cristiano Ronaldo doubtful for Real Madrid’s semis match

first_imgReal Madrid heads to Manchester City for Tuesday’s first leg of their Champions League semifinal with one major concern – the fitness of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.Both star strikers, who have scored 74 goals between them this season, are nursing right-leg injuries. Ronaldo strained a muscle in a win over Villarreal on Wednesday, ruling him out of Saturday’s match at Rayo Vallecano – that Benzema exited before halftime with a leg injury of his own.Coach Zinedine Zidane said that Ronaldo, who trained on Sunday, will travel with the squad to England. Benzema is a bigger worry for the former France great.”We’re going to assess Benzema,” Zidane said after Saturday’s match. “All I can say is that it’s not a knock. I hope that it’s nothing serious and that he’ll be available for Tuesday.”While fitness is the focus for Madrid, crosstown rival Atletico Madrid is preparing its defense to handle Bayern Munich’s impressive attack in Wednesday’s other semifinal.Here is a closer look at this week’s Champions League matches:Gareth Bale holds key for Real MadridThe 10-time champions have already found their savior in case Ronaldo and Benzema have not fully recovered to face City.Gareth Bale rose to the occasion when both his strike partners were out on Saturday, scoring two goals to lead a 3-2 comeback victory at Rayo that kept Madrid in the fight for the Spanish league title.For Bale, Madrid has the “psychological” advantage of playing the second leg back in Spain.advertisement”If we get a good result in the Etihad Stadium, back at the Bernabeu our fans are always going to help us,” Bale said. “As long as we don’t lose there, we’ll be very confident at the Bernabeu.”Under former Madrid manager Manuel Pellegrini, City is in fine form domestically in April. Besides a draw against lowly Newcastle, high-scoring wins 3-0 over Chelsea and a 4-0 rout of Stoke on Saturday are a reminder of City at its best.Kevin de Bruyne has been the inspiration behind the revival, as a dynamo in midfielder since returning after two months out. The Belgian was rested against Stoke in preparation for Madrid.”Now almost everybody is back and it gives us a different feeling,” De Bruyne said.Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich: Intriguing clashThe match at Vicente Calderon Stadium promises to be an intriguing clash of styles between two of the game’s most respected managers.While Pep Guardiola has remade Bayern on the model of his attractive Barcelona sides, Diego Simeone has forged Atletico into one of the best defensive teams in Europe and has it on the cusp of a second final in three years.Atletico has already proven strong enough to suffocate Barcelona’s trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar in the last round.Goalie Jan Oblak anchors a defense that has kept seven clean sheets in 10 Champions League matches, in addition to 22 clean sheets in 35 rounds of the Spanish league – keeping it level on points with leader Barcelona with three matches left.Atletico will likely be without injured centerback Diego Godin. That leaves youngsters Jose Gimenez and Lucas Hernandez to hold down its back line against Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Mueller’s combined 16 goals in the competition.”The tie against Bayern is going to be as hard or harder than the one against Barcelona,” Gimenez said. “They have different weapons, but play a similar kind of football. We hope that they don’t have a good night and we can get a good result.”In their only prior meeting, Bayern needed a replay to beat Atletico in the 1974 final for its first of five European Cups.One win away from clinching a third Bundesliga title in as many years under Guardiola, Bayern is focused winning the Champions League to cap the Catalan manager’s last season in charge before taking over at City next season.last_img read more

Fit-again Andy Murray eyes first Monte Carlo final

first_imgWorld number one Andy Murray has recovered from an elbow injury and is keen to reach the final of the Monte Carlo Masters for the first time, the Briton said ahead of his opening match against Gilles Muller in the second round on Wednesday. (Novak Djokovic survives scare to reach Monte Carlo third round)Murray has been out of action since March but has worked his way back to full fitness and reckons his serve was back to its best.”I wouldn’t start the tournament unless I felt comfortable (going full tilt), but I’ve only been really serving at my normal pace the last couple of days,” Murray said in an interview on the ATP Tour website (www.atpworldtour.com).”I’ve been trying to build it up slowly to time it right for the beginning of the tournament. The elbow has been feeling better every day, so I am positive about that.” (Former runner-up Tomas Berdych progresses in Monte Carlo Masters)Murray took his time to come to grips with the clay surface, winning his first clay title in Munich in 2015, 10 years into his professional career.He followed that up by winning the Madrid Open later that year, beating Spaniard Rafa Nadal, arguably the best clay court player of his generation.Since 2015, Murray has been to three finals on clay, losing to Novak Djokovic in the 2016 Madrid and French Open before beating the world number two in the 2016 Italian Open final.”I’ve always enjoyed playing on clay but I never quite figured out the movement,” Murray said.advertisement”The last couple of years I spent lots of time with my team in training and preparation, working on it. Timing my slides better. Once I did that, it’s such a big part of my game and how I play that it just felt much more comfortable.”That showed in my results and obviously winning matches and tournaments on the surface builds your confidence as well.”Murray lost to Nadal in the semi-finals at Monte Carlo last year and said he was focused on improving his record at the tournament.”This tournament has got a lot of history. I’ve come here many years and I do enjoy it,” Murray added.”It would be nice to reach the final here. It’s not going to be easy, the first tournament back after a while, but I’ve been feeling good and hopefully I can do it.”last_img read more

Viswanathan Anand finishes joint third at Tata Steel Masters

first_imgFive-time world champion Viswanathan Anand had to be content with a joint third-place finish after settling for a draw with compatriot Vidit Gujrathi in the 13th and final round of the Tata Steel Masters in Wijk Aan Zee, The Netherlands.With three victories, a defeat against winner Magnus Carlsen of Norway and nine draws, Anand ended the event on 7.5 points and will add six points to his existing rating. He is sixth in world rankings.Carlsen expectedly won the event after drawing rather easily with Anish Giri of Holland in the final round.Leading by a half point over Giri, Carlsen started the day with black pieces and went for his recent pet Sveshnikov Sicilian. Giri admitted he had not looked so deep and at one point sacrificed an exchange to spice things up.Carlsen, who scored 9 points, thought if anyone was better it was black but simply chose a safer option to close the event. This was Carlsen’s seventh victory in the super tournament. Anand has won this event five times earlier.The second place went to Giri who ended on 8.5 and it was a three-way tie for the third place shared by Ian Nepomniachtchi of Russia, Ding Liren of China and Anand respectively.Gujrathi proved that his elevation to the top group was not a flash in the pan as he ended a creditable sixth on 7 points. Gujrathi lost two, won three and drew the remaining eight games. This result will also help the Nasik-based to climb back in the 2700 rating club that he had temporarily left.advertisementThe final day did not provide much excitement. Anand opened with the king pawn and faced the Petroff defense which was also used by Jan Krzysztof Duda of Poland just a couple of days’ back.Anand went for an old variation resulting in a symmetrical pawn structure and Gujrathi equalised without much ado. The players decided to sign peace in 30 moves vide repetition.Vladimir Kramnik of Russia became the biggest casualty losing a whopping 24 rating points and for the first time in 27 years the Russian will be out of top 15 in world ranking. In the final round, Kramnik lost to Samuel Shankalnd of United States after stretching a drawn endgame.In the only other decisive game of the final round, Richard Rapport of Hungary came good against Jorden Van Foreest of Holland.In the Challengers section, Vladislav Kovalev of Latvia won yet another game to assure himself a place in the masters next year. Young Indian Grandmaster R Praggnanandhaa ended 11th after drawing his final round game with Dinara Saduakassova of Kazakhstan.Results masters round 13:V Anand (Ind, 7.5) drew with Vidit Gujrathi (Ind, 7); Richard Rapport (Hun, 6.5) beat Jorden Van Foreest (Ned, 4.5); Anish Giri (Ned, 8.5) drew with Magnus Carlsen (Nor, 9); Jan Krzysztof Duda (Pol, 5.5) drew with Ding Liren (Chn, 7); Shakhriyar Mamedyarov (Aze, 5) drew with Vladimir Fedoseev (Rus, 5);Vladimir Kramnik (Rus, 4.5) lost to Sameul Shankland (Usa, 6.5); Ian Nepomniachtchi (Rus, 7.5) drew with Teimour Radjabov (Aze, 6.5).Also Watch:last_img read more

Report: Portugal 3 Switzerland 1

first_imgA stunning hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo fired Portugal into the final of the Nations League with a 3-1 victory over Switzerland in Porto.A closely fought contest at Estadio do Dragao was settled by the individual brilliance of the host nation’s captain, who opened the scoring in the first half before striking twice in two minutes just as extra time looked likely.Switzerland looked the better team for long spells and deservedly drew level after half-time thanks to Ricardo Rodriguez’s penalty, which was awarded in remarkable circumstances after a Portugal spot-kick was overturned by VAR.

But Ronaldo ensured Portugal will contest the final of this inaugural competition against either England or Netherlands on Sunday thanks to two stunning pieces of finishing in the closing moments.53 – Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick against Switzerland was his 7th for Portugal and his 53rd for club and country. Ridiculous. pic.twitter.com/xkmewmQsut— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 5, 2019Xherdan Shaqiri and Haris Seferovic each missed presentable openings as Switzerland started the stronger.They were made to rue those misses 25 minutes in. Ronaldo, having won a free-kick thanks to a robust challenge from Kevin Mbabu, fired the ball past a messy wall and into the bottom-right corner beyond the static Yann Sommer.There was a further chance for Seferovic, whose half-volley from Mbabu’s cross clipped the crossbar, and Joao Felix spurned an opportunity to mark his debut with a goal when Ronaldo played him through.Switzerland drew level 12 minutes after the restart, though – and in extraordinary fashion.Portugal were awarded a penalty after Bernardo Silva was clearly fouled by Fabian Schar, but referee Felix Brych overturned the decision and awarded a spot-kick to Switzerland as, earlier in the same passage of play, Nelson Semedo made the slightest of contact with Steven Zuber and tripped him in the box. Rodriguez dispatched the ball from 12 yards despite Rui Patricio’s best efforts.There was a further blow to Portugal when Pepe went off with an arm injury, and Switzerland began to look the most likely to snatch a winner, with Shaqiri causing particular problems and Mbabu setting up chances for Zuber and Renato Steffen.But Ronaldo came to his side’s aid when it mattered most. He struck his second goal with a low first-time finish from a Silva cut-back, and he added a third in the 90th minute, racing into the penalty area, bamboozling Manuel Akanji and rifling past Sommer. What does it mean? Portugal are favourites with Ronaldo on formPortugal were outperformed at times by Switzerland but, with Ronaldo in this sort of mood, they are the favourites to win almost any match. The Juventus star might find things tougher against the English or Dutch defences, but there is little reason to bet against him making his mark in the final.Ronaldo still setting the standardThis was not his finest all-round display by any means, but when you can score goals like that, it rarely matters.

Intertanko Objects Nigerian Tanker Ban

first_imgzoom The International Association of Independent Tanker Owners (Intertanko) has issued a letter of protest to Nigerian National Petroleum Corp (NITC) against the oil corporation’s decision to ban 113 tankers from Nigerian waters.According to the decision, 113 tankers were banned “from engaging in crude oil/gas loading activities in any of the terminals within the Nigerian territorial waters until further notice.”NNPC said that the ban had been ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari, but reasons behind the decision had not been disclosed.The list of tankers consists of mostly Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs), with some ship names appearing twice and others that have been absent from Nigerian waters for quite some time.“Intertanko protests in the strongest possible way that these bans should be lifted with immediate effect until grounds and evidence for the ban have been given to each vessel and vessel owner/operator, and the owner/operator has had an opportunity to respond,” said Intertanko general counsel Michael White in a letter addressed to Gbenga O. Komolafe, the group general manager of NNPC’s crude oil marketing division.According to White, many of the tankers on the list have been absent from Nigerian waters for quite some time, hence their owners find it difficult to understand why have they been blacklisted.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Suncor Energy unveils new reclamation approach

first_imgOil sands major Suncor Energy has reached what it describes as “another milestone in its reclamation efforts” with the planting of a fen-type wetland at the company’s base plant north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. A fen is a specific type of peat-accumulating wetland, common in the region. Suncor says is one of the first companies in the world to attempt the reconstruction of this type of wetland, and has been doing so in cooperation with a number of university researchers from across North America.“I want to acknowledge the many people and organisations working together on this journey; they have played a vital part in helping us get to where we are today,” said Mark Little, Executive Vice-President, Oil Sands and In Situ. “I also look forward to continued collaboration on this great project, as we are deeply committed to returning land to a natural state for future generations. Looking ahead, I expect we and others in the industry will continue learning as we share the knowledge gained so far, and as we progress together through the Nikanotee Fen’s monitoring phase.” Construction of the fen’s underlying watershed was completed in January 2013, setting the stage for planting vegetation this spring and summer.To celebrate the planting phase, Suncor held an opening ceremony, which included an Aboriginal blessing and remarks from local dignitaries including Mayor Melissa Blake and the Honourable Don Scott, MLA for Fort McMurray-Conklin. The event also acknowledged the student who won a contest earlier this year to name the fen. Emma Curtis, who recently completed grade four at St Martha’s School in Fort McMurray, chose the name Nikanotee (pronounced Nee-ga-no-tee) because of its meaning as the Cree word for future.last_img read more

DOI: 10.1126/science.aaa7471ABSTRACTEighty years ago, it was proposed that solid hydrogen would become metallic at sufficiently high density. Despite numerous investigations, this transition has not yet been experimentally observed. More recently, there has been much interest in the analog of this predicted metallic transition in the dense liquid, due to its relevance to planetary science. Here, we show direct observation of an abrupt insulator-to-metal transition in dense liquid deuterium. Experimental determination of the location of this transition provides a much-needed benchmark for theory and may constrain the region of hydrogen-helium immiscibility and the boundary-layer pressure in standard models of the internal structure of gas-giant planets.Press release (Phys.org)—A team of researchers working at Sandia National Labs working with another team from the University of Rostock in Germany, has succeeded in squeezing liquid deuterium into becoming what appeared to be a metal.

DOI: 10.1126/science.aac6626center_img Journal information: Science © 2015 Phys.org Explore further Back in 1935, a pair of researchers, Hillard Bell Huntington and Eugene Wigner first showed via theory that it should be possible to create solid metallic hydrogen—all that was needed was sufficient pressure. Since that time, various teams have attempted to prove that theory correct, but to date, none have been successful. In this new effort, the research team has developed a new way to add pressure that does not cause other problems. Other than pride, the only real benefit of pursuing the objective is the information that can be gleaned from such efforts, information that might prove useful in studying other planets, for example—it could shed light on the forces necessary to produce observed phenomenon.Up till now, the technique used to pressurize hydrogen, has been based on squeezing samples of it between two diamond tips—such experiments have shown that it is possible to get compounds rich in hydrogen to become metal-like.In this new effort, the researchers noted that using the dual diamond tip approach was unlikely to result in achieving the ultimate goal due to the problem of sample materials becoming too reactive. They chose to go another route, making use of the massive Sandia Z machine—it is capable of creating magnetic fields up to 20 mega gauss—they first pressurized a sample of liquid deuterium (a hydrogen isotope) then caused a jolt of current from the Z machine to move through an electrode, which in turn hit the front of the container holding the deuterium—that caused a shockwave to move through the sample, condensing it further. As the material was condensed, the researchers measured how well the sample reflected light, a common means for identifying a metal. As the sample was condensed, it moved from a transparent state, to one that was reflective. This, the team claims, shows that the material clearly moved from an insulator to a metal.The results by this new team are the closest yet to creating solid metallic hydrogen and add further proof that it can be done, if the right means are applied. It will also likely rekindle efforts by others to be the first to reach the goal.last_img read more
