UCL: Man City seal Round of 16 place

first_imgRelatedPosts Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Man City top players test positive for coronavirus Manchester City played out a tame 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk to claim their place in the Champions League knockout stage for a seventh consecutive season.Ilkay Gundogan’s second-half strike was cancelled out by Manor Solomon as City failed to spark at the Etihad Stadium but, with Dinamo Zagreb losing to Atalanta, the result was enough to secure top spot in Group C.There was little else to excite amid a flat atmosphere but Shakhtar’s performance kept their hopes of joining City in the last 16 very much alive.As usual, City enjoyed a lot of possession but they lacked their usual potency while Shakhtar were not cowed by their failure to make much of an impression in their previous games against their hosts.The Ukrainians, paired with City for a third consecutive year, were beaten 3-0 by Pep Guardiola’s men in September and thrashed 6-0 on their last visit to the Etihad Stadium a year ago.They were determined and caught City a number of times with what seemed like a plan to lob balls over the top of the home defence.Ederson raced out of his area to meet one such pass but completely missed the ball allowing Tete to break clear, but the Shakhtar forward’s shot was turned behind by Fernandinho.Tete had another run snuffed out by Ederson before he tested the keeper with a long-range strike.Another long ball over the top presented a chance for Alan Patrick but he blazed well over.City’s opportunities were limited despite their control of much of the play. Raheem Sterling volleyed wide but was offside anyway, Joao Cancelo curled a shot wide and Nicolas Otamendi headed at Andriy Pyatov before shooting over from 30 yards. Gundogan also had an effort deflected wide.City finally made the breakthrough after 56 minutes. Gabriel Jesus was unable to get on the end of a through ball but was a alert enough to poke the ball away from Pyatov as he tried to gather.He found Gundogan to his left and the German found the net through a crowded area.Yet any hopes that would kill off the visitors were wide of the mark as Shakhtar responded well and drew level 13 minutes later.Dodo got behind the City defence on the right and pulled the ball back for Solomon, who had come off the bench just moments earlier, and he struck with a ferocious finish.Jesus again did well inside the box as City pushed to reclaim the lead, reaching the byline and pulling the ball back for substitute David Silva to shoot.The Spaniard found the target but, after Pyatov, took off some of the pace, Serhiy Kryvtsov cleared off the line.Sterling then volleyed wide in the closing minutes but City seemed happy to play out the draw.Fernandinho was booked for a bad challenge late on, earning a suspension for next month’s dead rubber against Zagreb.Tags: Manchester CityShakhtar DonetskUCLlast_img read more

Fund Threatens D’Tigress African Title Defence

first_imgOgunade said, “The only challenge now is how to get the team (D’Tigress) to Dakar and it is a real problem. There’s no fund available for now. We have never had it this challenging and it is quite a battle get the team going.“It is tough like this because we have virtually all the competitions hold so close to each other.”The sports ministry serves as the last resort for many of the federations even though the NBBF board has embarked on quite elaborate self funding and corporate sponsorship in the past three years. They are hoping this time that the sports ministry could be of help.“What we have been told by the ministry is to hold on but I can’t for now say how much that could translate to,” Ogunade added.The basketball federation has only been able to get refund for their expenditure towards the 2018 FIBA Women’s World Cup held in Spain after so many reminders. The refund was received by mid July, 2019.D’Tigress are already programmed to check out of their Eko Hotel on Sunday for the flight on Monday as the NBBF begins to cut down bills in preparation for the arrival in Lagos of the men’s team before their journey to China for the FIBA World Cup. D’Tigers are already in camp in the USA and having two friendly matches against Dominican Republic.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram African champions D’Tigress of Nigeria are programmed to depart Lagos for Dakar on Monday, August 5, but that plan is now doubtful as the Nigeria Basketball Federation is yet to raise the needed fund to execute the trip.The Vice President of NBBF, Babs Ogunade confirmed to Extrasportsnigeria.com on Friday that cash was still far from being available for the 2019 AfroBasket for Women billed to start in Senegal August 10.
