High inflation, investment slowdown to drag growth

The Philippines is facing a perfect storm of economic woes, both from overseas and within, that will cap growth next year, a foreign think tank said on Wednesday.   In a research note to its clients, Capital Economics said high inflation and a slowdown in private investment would weigh down the local economy over the coming quarters.   "In contrast to the consensus, which is expecting growth to rebound next year, we think [gross domestic product (GDP) growth] will slow to just 6 percent in 2019," the think tank said, citing the stubbornly high inflation as the country's main economic challenge at present.   "The main concern for policymakers is the recent...Keep on reading: High inflation, investment slowdown to drag growth.....»»

Neymar s mouth bloodied between 2 goals in PSG rout of Nice

By Jerome Pugmire, Associated Press PARIS (AP) — Neymar took a whack to the face, played on with cotton tissue in his bloodied mouth, and grabbed his second goal as Paris Saint-Germain won at Nice 3-0 in the French league on Saturday. The Brazil forward was caught by Wylan Cyprien's flailing arm as they contested the ball near the hour mark of an otherwise one-sided contest. Cyprien was sent off for a second yellow card, and Neymar sat down for a while and had a little blood wiped from his mouth with a sponge. He got up and carried on, playing for several minutes as he ran around with the makeshift plaster device protruding from his mouth. Neymar had already done damage of his own to Nice, expertly curling PSG in front midway through the first half from the edge of the penalty area. The ball fizzed past goalkeeper Walter Benitez before he could react and lodged in the bottom right corner. That was enough for league leader PSG's eighth straight win. France star Kylian Mbappe returned from a three-game ban and was desperate to score for PSG, but too much so. He fluffed a good chance right at the start of the second half by taking too many touches. After his shot was blocked near the line, attacking midfielder Christopher Nkunku stroked in the rebound to make it 2-0. PSG has struggled in the past at Nice, which always reserves a vitriolic welcome, but should have scored several more. When Neymar eventually got the third goal, it was in the second minute of injury time as Mbappe set him up for an easy tap-in. With seven goals, Neymar is one ahead of Marseille winger Florian Thauvin at the top of the scoring chart. There seems no stopping PSG in the French league: It has 27 goals and counting. PSG is the second French side to win its first eight games after Lille in 1936, and victory at home to Lyon next weekend will be a record. LYON STUMBLES Lyon missed the chance to overtake local rival Saint-Etienne and move up to second place after drawing at home to Nantes 1-1. United States defender Matt Miazga looked horrified when a penalty was given against him with 10 minutes left. He was shown a yellow card for holding back Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar following a video review. Miazga was irate but then relieved, as Lyon forward Nabil Fekir's penalty was well saved by Romania goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu. Aouar gave Lyon the lead midway through the first half and midfielder Gabriel Boschilia leveled in the 62nd. OTHER GAMES Alsace-based Strasbourg beat Dijon 3-0 at home, while Caen defeated Amiens 1-0. Brittany side Guingamp lost its first six games but has four points from two games after winning at Angers 1-0. Reims drew at home to Bordeaux 0-0. SUNDAY'S MATCHES Marseille can claim second place with a win at Lille, while Montpellier hosts Nimes in a tense derby. Rennes needs a home win against Toulouse to pull away from the relegation zone......»»

Madrid and Atletico draw in derby, Barcelona stays ahead

By Tales Azzoni, Associated Press MADRID (AP) — Barcelona is getting some help from its rivals to stay ahead in the Spanish league despite falling into its worst slump in two years. The defending champion failed to win for the third straight game on Saturday, being held by Athletic Bilbao to 1-1 at home. But it was enough to retain its lead after Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid couldn't manage more than 0-0 in the derby at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Real Madrid hasn't won in two consecutive games, being unable to take advantage of Barcelona's struggles. Atletico has won two in a row, but hasn't reached the top because of a poor start. Real Madrid and Barcelona are tied on points, one more than Sevilla, and two more than Atletico, which extended its unbeaten streak in league matches at the Bernabeu to six. Sevilla moved up after defeating Eibar 3-1 in a match marked by the collapse of a railing that left a few fans injured as they fell onto the pitch while celebrating a goal. DERBY DRAW The Madrid derby ended with goalkeepers Jan Oblak and Thibaut Courtois getting the better of the attackers in the few times the teams got near the goal. "I'm not satisfied with the result because we deserved the victory," Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui said. "We created some clear scoring chances." The loudest celebration by Real Madrid fans came when Brazilian teenage sensation Vinicius Junior made his first-team debut, but he entered in the final minutes and didn't do much. Lopetegui couldn't count on left back Marcelo and midfielder Francisco "Isco" Alarcon because of injuries. Gareth Bale was replaced at halftime with an apparent injury. "It was a difficult match, as it always is when we play here," Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. "We were better in the first half but in the end it was a fair result." Atletico beat Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup final in the beginning of the season. BARCELONA'S STRUGGLES Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde put Messi in the game early in the second half, but the playmaker couldn't rally the team to victory. He did set up an 84th-minute equalizer by Munir El Haddadi, but it was already too late. Athletic, winless since the first round, opened the scoring before halftime through Oscar De Marco. Sergio Busquets also was rested ahead of Barcelona's Champions League match at Tottenham on Wednesday. He entered the match early in the second half to replace the injured Sergi Roberto. "We have the squad and players to remain strong without depending on only one player," Messi said. "We have to improve on many things, but this is just the beginning, the league is very long." Messi said Barcelona has to stop "conceding goals in every match." The team has conceded five goals in its last three matches, and eight in total in the league this season. RAILING COLLAPSE Sevilla followed its 3-0 rout of Real Madrid with a 3-1 win at Eibar, a match that had to be stopped for a few minutes in the second half because fans fell onto the pitch when a railing collapsed. Some fans were carried away on stretchers, although local media said no serious injuries were immediately reported. WINLESS NO MORE Valencia's winless streak is finally over. A first-half goal by Kevin Gameiro — and a second-half penalty kick save by goalkeeper Neto — gave Valencia its first win in eight matches in all competitions. It was the fifth winless game for Sociedad in the last six league rounds, keeping the Basque Country club near the middle of the table. Sociedad has yet to win at its renovated Anoeta Stadium this season......»»
