UAAP 82: National U still on pace for season sweep; Tiger Cubs still at third

STANDINGS Bullpups 10-0 Baby Tamaraws 9-1 Tiger Cubs 6-4 Blue Eaglets 5-5 Baby Falcons 4-6 Jr. Archers 3-7 Jr. Warriors 3-7 Jr. Maroons 0-10 With Kevin Quiambao remaining a force and Terrence Fortea rounding into form, Nazareth School of National University is still the standard in the UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament. The Bullpups proved that anew, Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre, as they imposed their will on De La Salle Zobel for a resounding 100-76 rout. Quiambao found no match for him and powered through for a 21-point, 15-rebound double-double while Fortea kept his fire burning with 20 markers. Still, the defending champions found themselves getting challenged by the Jr. Archers and were only ahead by one at the half. Come the third quarter, however, they restored order and outscored their opponents, 26-10. National U only stepped harder on the pedal in the final frame en route to its 10th win in as many games. The Bullpups also got much welcome contributions for the other guys such as Reyland Torres who had 12 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists as well as Ernest Felicilda who had 15 markers, five dimes, and four boards. For DLSZ, Ivan Cudiamat topped the scoring column with 24 points, all from threes, while Kobe Dalisay also added 15 markers. Main man Kean Baclaan struggled, though, with just eight points in 3-of-18 shooting from the field to see his squad drop to 3-7. In the day's other game, University of Sto. Tomas kept rolling with a convincing 88-80 victory versus Adamson High School. Much of that was thanks to Bismarck Lina who showed he has indeed moved forward from his preseason knee injury with a 24-point, 10-rebound double-double. Jacob Cortez then contributed an all-around 19 points, six rebounds, four assists, and two steals in the Tiger Cubs' fourth consecutive victory and sixth overall inn 10 games. As they stretched their streak, the black and gold tightened their grip on third-place while also dealing the Baby Falcons their fourth loss in a row. John Erolon fronted the effort for Adamson with 20 points while Jake Figueroa also added an 18-point, 13-rebound double-double - all of which weren't enough to prevent their drop to the sixth spot at 4-6.

Valverde questioned after another late collapse by Barcelona

By Joseph Wilson, Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Barcelona had once again played great, led through goals by Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann, yet still managed to let it slip away. Barcelona squandered one of its best performances of the season by conceding two late goals to Atlético Madrid, falling 3-2 in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia. Messi equalized after Jorge “Koke” Resurreccion scored for Atletico, and Griezmann put Barcelona deservedly ahead 2-1. But the goalkeeping of Jan Oblak, Atlético's star this season, kept Barcelona out for the rest of the way while Álvaro Morata leveled with a penalty kick in the 82nd minute and Ángel Correa completed the dramatic turnaround in the 86th. For Barcelona, the chance to add a minor trophy from a mini-tournament played thousands of miles away is not the main worry. The concern is Barcelona’s odd knack of losing control of games that look like a sure victory. Whether it's a question of overconfidence, a lack of fitness or just momentary lapses that cost the team dearly, the pressure is on coach Ernesto Valverde. Messi and other team leaders defended Valverde, whose very good overall record at Barcelona has been blemished by shocking defeats. “It’s normal that when you lose and don’t reach your objectives, and when our fans see that the team is not playing like they would like, that people talk and say things,” Messi said. “We have to be more united than ever, remain a strong group and get through this. “This year we will try to play like we did today (before the late goals) and not commit childish errors like those we committed.” But that didn’t stop the Spanish sports media reporting that Barcelona club officials met with midfield great Xavi Hernández to probe him as a possible replacement for Valverde either now or next season. Xavi left Barcelona in 2015, following 17 trophy-laden seasons, for Qatari club Al-Sadd, where he coaches. The speculation that he could soon be returning home led to Al-Sadd saying no move was imminent. “The issue of Xavi going to Barcelona is normal and expected because he will be at his club and it’s his first home and he must return there in the future, but as of today, Xavi is the coach of Al-Sadd.” Al-Sadd general manager Turki Al-Ali said in a statement on the club website. “Xavi and his team are focusing on tomorrow’s match against Al-Rayyan, and we know that a club with the size and professionalism of Barcelona will take to official channels to speak of such matters,” Al-Ali said. Barcelona’s loss at the King Abdullah Sports City on Thursday came five days after it conceded an 88th-minute equalizer at Espanyol in the Spanish league. The late goal by Wu Lei also came on a desperate counterattack similar to both of Atlético's late attacks that led to goals, when Barcelona’s backline was out of sync and let a pass through to a player with only goalkeeper Neto to beat. Wu’s goal ruined a superb match by Luis Suárez, who had scored with a fine touch and made a difficult pass for an assist. Suárez also backed Valverde on Thursday by taking the blame for the stumble against Atlético. “This loss shows we have room to improve,” the Uruguay striker said. “It shows us that there are mistakes that we can’t make because we were in charge of the game and we let them mount counterattacks … but the coach is not at fault. They were mistakes that we made.” Barcelona has drawn three of its last four league matches, but still lead the competition on goal difference ahead of Real Madrid. The team was leading before finishing 2-2 at Real Sociedad last month; lost 3-1 at Levante after Messi had put them ahead in November; and gave up a goal in the 81st in a 2-2 draw at Osasuna in August. Those setbacks would not be as worrisome for Barcelona if the team had not completely collapsed in the Champions League in recent seasons, most recently a humiliating 4-0 loss at Liverpool after winning the first leg of the semifinals 3-0. Valverde’s job was then in even more jeopardy at the end of last season after Barcelona lost the Copa del Rey final to Valencia, casting a shadow of doubt over the Spanish league champions. Club president Josep Bartomeu, however, has stuck by the former player who is known for his intelligence and unflappable attitude. Valverde is in his third season at Barcelona. He has won back-to-back Spanish league titles and one Copa del Rey final. A European Cup has eluded him. Valverde said he was used to the criticism as part of a job that was never secure. “We coaches always work with the idea of giving it our all to each match,” Valverde said. “We know how soccer is and that there is a permanent instability in teams when you are not getting good results or when you lose. Now that we have lost I suppose people will talk about it, but I remain focused on my job.” Valverde’s next job is to prepare for the visit of Granada on Jan. 19. In the meantime, Atlético will face crosstown rival Real Madrid in the Super Cup final on Sunday......»»

Atletico rallies to beat Barcelona and reach Super Cup final

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — A Madrid derby will decide the Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia. Atlético Madrid rallied with two late goals to beat Barcelona 3-2 in a back-and-forth game on Thursday, setting up a meeting against city rival Real Madrid in Sunday's final at the revamped Spanish Super Cup. Real Madrid defeated Valencia 3-1 in the first semifinal at King Abdullah Sports City stadium on Wednesday. Atlético and Real Madrid only made it to the tournament this year because the Spanish soccer federation debuted a “Final Four” format as part of a three-year lucrative deal to play in Saudi Arabia. Previously, only the Spanish league champion — Barcelona last season — and the Copa del Rey winner — Valencia — participated. “We deserved it,” Atlético coach Diego Simeone said. “We knew we had to be patient, we were playing against a very good opponent. We had the feeling that if we could tie the game we would eventually win it, and that's what happened.” Barcelona was mostly in control throughout the match but Atlético opened the scoring less than 20 seconds into the second half with a goal by midfielder Jorge “Koke” Resurrección, who had come on at halftime. Barcelona started its comeback five minutes later with Messi equalizing with a well-placed shot after getting past two defenders inside the area. Antoine Griezmann then put his team ahead with a header in the 62nd from the rebound after Atlético goalkeeper Jan Oblak saved Luis Suárez's attempt. Barcelona kept playing better but Atlético threatened on counterattacks, and it equalized with a penalty kick converted by Álvaro Morata in the 82nd after striker Víctor “Vitolo” Machín was fouled in a one-on-one situation with Barcelona goalkeeper Neto. Atlético got the winner four minutes later following another fast counterattack, this time with Ángel Correa scoring with a shot that bounced off goalkeeper Neto before going in. “It was an intense match,” said Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde, who will be under increased pressure back home after the loss. “It seemed we had it under control but they were able to rally.” A minute after Morata's equalizer, Atlético had loudly demanded another penalty after a handball by Gerard Piqué, but the non-call stood after video review. The VAR had already disallowed two Barcelona goals, one by Messi because of a handball just before Griezmann's goal, and another by Piqué because of offside in the 73rd, when Barcelona was leading 2-1. The first half ended with a small altercation involving players from both teams, including Messi and young Atlético forward João Félix. The mostly pro-Barcelona crowd at the 62,000-capacity King Abdullah stadium was much larger than in the game between Real Madrid and Valencia. The Spanish federation had said ahead of the match it was sold out. Less than 500 fans had been expected to make the trip from Spain for the matches in Saudi Arabia. The Spanish federation took the Super Cup to Saudi Arabia in a three-year deal reportedly worth 120 million euros ($134 million). It made the move despite criticism from human rights activists and advice from UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin for European soccer teams not to play in countries "where the basic rights of women are not respected.” On Wednesday, Amnesty International organized a small peaceful protest in front of the Saudi Arabia embassy in Madrid to call for the release of women activists who have been fighting for their rights in Saudi Arabia. The Spanish federation has praised the fact women are being allowed to watch the Super Cup games, something that was part of the deal when it accepted to play in Saudi Arabia. It said the agreement will help Spain in its attempt to host the 2030 World Cup in a joint bid with Portugal. The Super Cup was also played abroad last season, when Barcelona beat Sevilla in Tangiers, Morocco, in a single-game final......»»

Madrid beats Valencia 3-1 to reach Spanish Super Cup final

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Helped by a clever goal by Toni Kroos directly from a corner kick, Real Madrid comfortably defeated Valencia 3-1 on Wednesday to kick off the revamped Spanish Super Cup in Saudi Arabia. Francisco “Isco” Alarcón and Luka Modric also scored for Real Madrid as it advanced to Sunday's final against either Barcelona or Atlético Madrid, who will play on Thursday. Kroos curled in an exquisite right-footed shot from the corner flag in the 15th minute after spotting Valencia goalkeeper Jaume Domenech out of position. Domenech was talking to a defender when Kroos curled in the corner, and couldn't get back in time to stop the ball from crossing the line. He punched the ball but it still went into the top of the net. “It was a lack of concentration by all of us,” Valencia forward Denis Cheryshev said. “I think mentally if affected us. After this goal everything became harder.” Isco added to the lead with a shot from inside the area in the 39th, and Modric sealed the victory with a neat strike with the outside of his right foot into the far corner in the 65th. Valencia's lone goal came through a penalty converted by Dani Parejo in second-half stoppage time after a handball by Madrid captain Sergio Ramos. “We were in control from the start,” Madrid midfielder Casemiro said. “We wanted to control possession and that's what we did. Everything went as planned. We can start thinking about the final now. ” Madrid's victory came in a less-than-packed King Abdullah Sports City stadium, which seats 62,000. Real Madrid said before the tournament that only about 20 of its fans were expected to make the trip from Madrid to Saudi Arabia, though most of the local crowd was pro-Real Madrid. “The fans showed their support," Casemiro said. "We have to thank them for how well they have welcomed us here.” The Spanish federation took the Super Cup to Saudi Arabia in a three-year deal reportedly worth 120 million euros ($134 million). It made the move despite criticism from human rights activists and advice from UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin for European soccer teams not to play in countries "where the basic rights of women are not respected.” Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde acknowledged earlier Wednesday they were playing in Saudi Arabia for the money, saying “football is an industry today. ... That's really why we are here." Amnesty International organized a small peaceful protest in front of the Saudi Arabia embassy in Madrid on Wednesday to call for the release of women activists who have been fighting for their rights in Saudi Arabia. The Super Cup was also played abroad last season, when Barcelona beat Sevilla in Tangiers, Morocco, in a single-game final. This is the first year the Super Cup is played with four teams. It used to feature only the Spanish league winner and the Copa del Rey champion. Valencia, last season's Copa winner, had complained about the change because it would have to play an extra match to try to win the title. Madrid got the win despite traveling to Saudi Arabia without injured forwards Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. Coach Zinedine Zidane used 22-year-old striker Luka Jovic up front, with five players forming the midfield. Valencia also was depleted by injuries, and striker Rodrigo was among those absent......»»

Super Cup to start with little interest from fans in Spain

By Tales Azzoni, Associated Press MADRID (AP) — The revamped Spanish Super Cup debuts in Saudi Arabia this week with the Spanish federation trying to hype the competition but seeing few fans in Spain interested in it. The Super Cup’s new semifinals format begins with Real Madrid facing Valencia on Wednesday, then Barcelona taking on Atlético Madrid on Thursday. The Barcelona-Atlético game was sold out, according to the federation, and only about 10,000 tickets were left for Madrid-Valencia. All games will be played at the 62,000-capacity King Abdullah Sports City stadium outside Jeddah. More than 35,000 tickets were sold for Sunday’s final in the first 24 hours after being put on sale. “Success in attendance is guaranteed for an attractive tournament that has gained value thanks to its new format,” the federation said. It added the new competition has “triggered the illusion” of fans in Jeddah, becoming a “true mass phenomenon in Saudi Arabia.” It said the tournament “will have an exceptional atmosphere.” But few fans in Spain were enticed to make the trip to Saudi Arabia soon after the holidays. Real Madrid said only about 600 fans came to the club requesting tickets, and from those only 20 came from people in Madrid. The rest were mostly from members already outside the country. Barcelona said 300 tickets were sold by the club, though it wasn't clear how many of those fans were traveling to the match from Spain. According to the Spanish daily El Mundo, about 50 ticket requests were made to Atlético, and only 26 to Valencia. “Football evolves, whether we want it or not. We are thrilled to be here fighting for this title,” Valencia coach Albert Celades said. “We understand why the fans couldn't make the trip here. We will try to bring the trophy back home to them.” Some players didn't make it to Saudi Arabia because of injuries, including Real Madrid's Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale. Atlético Madrid was without Thomas Lemar and Diego Costa, while Barcelona is missing Arthur, Ousmane Dembele and Marc-André ter Stegen. Valencia traveled with all of its players, including those injured. “We didn't come here for tourism, this is an important competition,” Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. “We are glad to be playing here and we will do everything to try to win.” This is the first year of a lucrative three-year deal -- reportedly worth 120 million euros ($134 million) -- reached by Spanish federation president Luis Rubiales to play the competition in Saudi Arabia. The federation said the deal will help Spain in its attempt to host the 2030 World Cup in a joint bid with Portugal. The decision attracted plenty of criticism from human rights activists, though, and went against advice from UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin for European soccer teams not to play in countries “where the basic rights of women are not respected.” Amnesty International has called for a peaceful protest in front of the Saudi Arabia embassy in Madrid on Wednesday to call for the release of women activists whom it says have been detained in the country. “I'm here professionally, and they welcomed us really well,” Zidane said. “Personally, it's different." The Spanish league also criticized the federation’s decision to play the Super Cup in Saudi Arabia, citing the country’s backing of a satellite company that is allegedly behind the piracy of European match broadcasts. The Spanish league also accused the federation of having double standards, as it has been against the league’s attempt to play a regular season match outside of Spain. The Super Cup was also played abroad last season, when Barcelona beat Sevilla in Tangiers, Morocco. Valencia, last season’s Copa del Rey champion, also complained about the change, as under the old format it would have a chance to win the Super Cup by winning one match instead of two. The Spanish Super Cup was always played between the Liga champion and the Copa del Rey winner at the beginning of the season, usually at a neutral venue. Now, the top two teams in each competition are participating overseas. The Liga is on its winter break. Barcelona is the most successful club in the Spanish Super Cup with 13 titles, three more than Real Madrid......»»

Madrid ends winless run at Getafe, Oblak saves Atletico

By Joseph Wilson, Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Real Madrid needed a defender to end a run of three straight draws and a worrisome scoring drought on Saturday as it resumed its Spanish league campaign after the winter break. Madrid center back Raphael Varane scored with a header after helping to play a part in an own-goal by Getafe’s goalkeeper to fuel a 3-0 victory at crosstown rival Getafe. The first win in four rounds by Zinedine Zidane’s team left it atop the standings at one point above Barcelona before the defending champions played at Espanyol hours later. Goalkeeper Jan Oblak made a pair of spectacular saves late in Atlético Madrid’s 2-1 win against Levante, ensuring it moved past Sevilla into third place on goal difference. Also, Valencia beat Eibar 1-0. Madrid, Barcelona, Atlético and Valencia will travel to Saudi Arabia to contest the new-look Spanish Super Cup next week. VARANE’S VICTORY Varane was already charged with anchoring a backline that was without the suspended Sergio Ramos. But he also came through at the other end to help get his team’s first goals after back-to-back scoreless draws. Varane was involved in an own-goal by Getafe goalkeeper David Soria to open the scoring in the 34th minute when they challenged for a high ball in the area. The Spanish league credited the goal to Soria, who appeared to knock the ball into his own net after failing to punch it clear. Varane doubled the lead in the 53rd when he was left unmarked to head home a free kick by Toni Kroos. Luka Modric added a third goal in stoppage time as Getafe lost its second of 10 league home matches this season. “We have made a good start to the year,” Zidane said. OBLAK'S SAVES Atlético got a third straight victory after scoring early and relying on Oblak to protect the three points. Thomas Partey started the attractive move that led to Correa's opener in the 13th when he played Kieran Trippier wide down the right flank. Trippier, instead of controlling the ball, used a precise single touch to send in a cross to the near post where Correa redirected it home. Roger Martí did well to level three minutes later for Levante when he swept in a lobbed pass for his ninth goal of the season. Atlético defender Felipe Monteiro hit right back for Atlético in the 19th with a powerful header. Atlético turned to Oblak to make two one-handed saves in denying Enis Bardhi late in the game. Oblak frustrated Bardhi’s excellent solo effort after he dribbled past three defenders before shooting off-balance. The Slovenia goalkeeper then surpassed that by stopping Bardhi’s point-blank header on one of the final touches of the match. “We all want to wrap the games up early, but we didn’t score the third goal that would have put it away,” Oblak said. “It was a reflex save and fortunately I stopped (Bardhi’s last attempt).” VALENCIA PREVAILS Valencia striker Maxi Gómez scored from a pass by Daniel Wass in the first half of a home win over Eibar. Valencia, which struggled early in the season, continued to climb up the table into sixth place......»»

AC Milan s fans banking on Ibrahimovic to rescue ailing club

By Jerome Pugmire, Associated Press Veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is returning to help his struggling former club AC Milan, which is reeling from a humiliating defeat and languishing way behind city rival Inter Milan. Ibrahimovic's arrival resembles something of a rescue mission for a seven-time European champion fallen on tough times. That's because Milan is mired in 11th place in Serie A, a distant 21 points behind league leader Inter, and none of its players has more than four league goals this season. Matters reached a crushing low last Sunday, when Italy's most successful club in the European Cup endured its heaviest league defeat in 21 years, a 5-0 defeat at Atalanta on Sunday. The club desperately needs Ibrahimovic at his best to stem the rot and have a chance at qualifying for a European place next season. “I’ll fight together with my teammates to change the course of this season,“ said Ibrahimovic, who has never lacked confidence in a stellar and varied career. “I will do everything to make it happen.“ The 38-year-old Swede has agreed a deal until the end of the season with the option to extend the contract for another season, the club announced Friday. Ibrahimovic has taken his brash confidence with him wherever he has gone. He needed it as a shield when forging a career against considerable adversity when he was growing up in Sweden. After starting out with modest Malmö, he then impressed enough with Amsterdam-based Ajax to earn a move to Italian powerhouse Juventus at the age of 23. From there followed stints with Inter and Spanish giant Barcelona. He scored regularly for both, but for once he was overshadowed by the diminutive frame of Lionel Messi at Barca. He stayed with the Catalan club only one season, taking the hint there was a bigger star than him shining, and so joined Milan for two seasons. He then moved to Paris Saint-Germain, where he had a prolific four years, and subsequently to Manchester United and recently the LA Galaxy. But Ibrahimovic always spoke fondly of his time with the Rossoneri and keenly left the door open for a move back. “I’m coming back to a club I hugely respect and to the city of Milan I love,“ said Ibrahimovic, Sweden's record scorer with 62 international goals and owner of nearly 500 club goals. He has been named the best player in Serie A and the French Ligue 1 three times, and best foreign player in Italy five times. The deal is subject to medical examination and Ibrahimovic will be in Milan on Jan. 2 to take it, before joining his teammates for his first training session. If he's passed fit it will then be time for Ibra, as he is known, to show Milan's fans he has lost none of the old magic against Sampdoria on Jan. 6. Fittingly for a player who craves the limelight, that match is at home. Milan's fans will expect nothing less than instant success, and neither will he......»»
