Five things we learned from the Champions League

first_imgKlopp has the better of GuardiolaLiverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp (L) and Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola look destined to compete for the sport’s biggest prizes for years to comeJurgen Klopp has beaten Pep Guardiola more times than any other manager, with Tuesday’s 2-1 second-leg win taking the tally to seven victories from 13 meetings.Two German Super Cup triumphs with Borussia Dortmund against Guardiola’s Bayern Munich bolster Klopp’s head-to-head record, but three consecutive successes with Liverpool in the last four months show that the German clearly has the better of his counterpart for now.Even Guardiola said himself before the first leg that the way his City side play is perfect for Liverpool, and apart from a stirring first-half effort from City in the return game, the quarter-final proved exactly that.City still vulnerable after half-timeManchester City captain Vincent Kompany is on the verge of winning his third Premier League titleFor all their possession and excellent attacking football, Guardiola’s City continue to find themselves caught out shortly after the interval.Although Liverpool’s three-goal burst last week came in the opening 45 minutes, they hit City with quickfire goals in the 59th and 61st minutes when they inflicted a first Premier League defeat of the season on the English champions-elect in January.Cruising towards a title celebration in front of their home fans in Saturday’s Manchester derby, City collapsed after the break as Paul Pogba’s 53rd and 55th-minute strikes set Manchester United on their way to a famous 3-2 win.That Achilles heel resurfaced on Tuesday, as after a rousing first-half performance gave them hope, Salah’s 39th goal of the season all but ended the tie 11 minutes into the second period.VAR debate will rumble onMohamed Salah celebrates after scoring Liverpool’s equaliser on the night© AFP PAUL ELLISPerhaps the turning point in the tie came shortly before half-time when Leroy Sane had a potentially crucial second Manchester City goal wrongly ruled out for offside.UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin in February said that video technology would not be introduced for European competitions next season, citing “lots of confusion”.But VAR will be used at the World Cup and is already in place in Serie A and the Bundesliga. The referee and his two assistants in the Liverpool half failed to notice that it was visiting midfielder James Milner who played the ball back to Sane, meaning that the German winger’s goal should have stood.Dzeko finds cracks in Barca armourEdin Dzeko’s early goal set Roma up for a memorable comeback against Barcelona© AFP LLUIS GENEAn incredible season had seen Barcelona go 40 matches unbeaten in La Liga and the Champions League, but Roma summoned a fightback that brought back memories of Barca against Paris Saint-Germain last season.Eusebio Di Francesco’s hosts — 4-1 down from the first leg — attacked from the off, with Edin Dzeko the driving force that finally pushed Barca into submission.His away goal had given Roma a glimmer of hope, and his sixth-minute strike kick-started a memorable night. Barcelona struggled under a barrage of crosses and set-pieces, with first-leg own-goal villains Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas completing the job from a penalty and a corner respectively.Runaway league leaders come unstuckBarcelona’s Argentinian forward Lionel Messi looks on during the UEFA Champions League round of sixteen second leg football match between FC Barcelona and Chelsea FC at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona on March 14, 2018.Manchester City and Barcelona are all but certain to wrap up comfortable league titles in England and Spain this season, but both were unceremoniously dumped out of Europe.While opponents have failed to hurt either team domestically, they have found life tougher in the Champions League. Four of City’s seven defeats this season have come in the competition, with the two by Liverpool following losses at the hands of Basel and Shakhtar Donetsk, while Barca collapsed in dramatic style at the Stadio Olimpico.Juventus look set to claim the Serie A title, but head to the Bernabeu on Wednesday facing a 3-0 deficit. French champions-elect Paris Saint-Germain were dumped out by Real Madrid in the last 16.Bayern Munich, already crowned Bundesliga champions, will hope to be the exception to the rule against Sevilla, with a 2-1 lead to defend in Bavaria.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Lionel Messi cut a forlorn figure as he left the Stadio Olimpico pitch after Roma stunned Barcelona© AFP LLUIS GENEPARIS, France, Apr 11 – Roma pulled off one of the greatest Champions League fightbacks to dump Lionel Messi and Barcelona out at the quarter-final stage, while Mohamed Salah continued his remarkable goalscoring form as Liverpool wrapped up victory over Manchester City.Here are five things we learned from the Champions League quarter-final, second legs on Tuesday:last_img read more

CVC gets cracking on Games swindlers

first_imgFile photo of CWG Organising Committee Suresh Kalmadi. (AP Photo)If the medal count that hoisted India almost to the pinnacle during the 2010 Commonwealth Games (CWG) called for a spirited celebration, here are some sobering figures. The cost of 11 major CWG projects was inflated by a mind-boggling Rs 527 crore. One or more persons allegedly made Rs 200 crore from the mega event.And Rs 1.5 crore was believed to have been embezzled in the purchase of badminton courts. What’s more, the Suresh Kalmadi-led CWG Organising Committee (OC) is under the scanner for hiring greenhorns and one of its top officials is facing corruption charges. These and many more skeletons are now tumbling out of the closet of the Games’ organisers.The source of the damning findings is a 293-page Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) reply to a Right to Information (RTI) application filed by MAIL TODAY. The documents throw light on 25 specific complaints of irregularities and corruption in matters related to the CWG that are being actively investigated by the CVC.There is a complaint that levels the charge of blatant overall corruption on the CWG organisers, the RTI reply reveals. Another allegation pertains to the appointment of unqualified and inexperienced persons as well as ineligible workforce consultants in the OC. A specific complaint of graft against Kalmadi’s aide Raj Kumar Sacheti, who is the OC’s joint director general, is also on the CVC radar.Then there is the serious allegation that an amount of `200 crore has been amassed by one or more persons whose identity has not been disclosed by the CVC. The documents show that tenders for 11 major CWG projects were awarded at rates abnormally jacked up by Rs 527 crore against their estimated cost. The work for these 11 major projects was ultimately awarded for Rs 1962 crore against an estimated cost of Rs 1435 crore.advertisementVarious agencies such as the DDA, NDMC, CPWD and MCD have been unable to justify these inflated rates so far. The CVC reply further reveals that the Shivaji Stadium project was handed over to a Chinese firm which had never earlier worked on any government project in India.This project was awarded for Rs 160 crore, which was double the estimated cost. Not only did the Chinese firm illegally sublet the work to an Indian entity, the unfinished venue could not be utilised for the CWG, the CVC has found.Also under investigation are alleged irregularities in awarding a tender to lay 14 synthetic tennis court surfaces at the R.K. Khanna Stadium to Australian company Rebound Ace. Its Indian branch is headed by ex-OC treasurer Anil Khanna’s son Aditya Khanna, the RTI reply reveals. Anil quit his OC post following the controversy.The RTI reply says another complaint being investigated by the CVC deals with the “embezzlement of `1.5 crore in the purchase of Hova courts for the badminton stadium”. MAIL TODAY has earlier exposed how no tender was invited before handing over this contract of 26 badminton courts to Japanese company Yonex.The deal with Australian firm SMAM, which was hired by the OC to get sponsorships for the Games before the contract was terminated in August, is also under the CVC lens. The hiring of treadmills for close to Rs 9.75 lakh apiece for 45 days is one more transaction being probed. The deal had been subjected to intense media scrutiny for its sheer extravagance. Another deal dissected by the CVC is the purchase of medical equipment for the CWG, which has been dogged by allegations of irregularities.The CVC is also probing “malpractices” in the selection procedure for awarding kitchen equipment installation tenders at the Games Village as well as “irregularities” in floating tenders for the supply of furniture and ACs for DDA’s mega housing project in Vasant Kunj and the Akshardham Village flats, the RTI reply says.Furthermore, complaints of irregularities in the proposal for the production of vehicle graphics, banners and signage for the Queen’s Baton Relay; the procurement of a secure communication network; and a deal favouring a company for the supply of a 3-D Shera were being probed.The CVC documents highlight five major Games projects – the Talkatora Indoor Stadium, Ring Road bypass, Barapullah elevated road, S.P. Mukherjee swimming pool and Rajaram Kohli Marg grade separator – for being awarded at “abnormally high rates” by inflating the cost of raw materials and labour charges.At the Talkatora stadium, 14 out of the 15 concrete cubes failed the strength test with the quantity of cement found lower than even the weakest grade of concrete, the CVC documents show. In the Ring Road bypass project, the CVC says that `3.68 crore was paid as extra transport charges for labour. For the swimming pool project, “the cost was increased to facilitate the acceptance of a tender quoting high rates”, the CVC report says.advertisementThe CVC has already initiated action on its findings for the Siri Fort Sports Complex and the Dhyan Chand National Stadium, the venue for hockey.Damning findingsInadmissible factors cited to jack up prices, citing urgent circumstances.Ineligible agencies were awarded work.Poor site management and delays despite higher rates.Test records fabricated to show high strength, but material quality poor.last_img
