Ronaldo, the four-time world player of the year, volleyed Real level at the Allianz Arena early in the second half, then reached his milestone by slotting home the victor 13 minutes from time in the first leg. 'I am happy with his game and also with the performance of the whole team'. "But not content, because he had chances to score more goals". The last time Real failed to score was last April, in a 0-0 draw at Manchester City in the Champions League semi-finals.
Manchester United host Chelsea at Old Trafford with the Red Devils looking to finally get a win over the Blues . A draw away from home is never a bad result in a knockout competition and Manchester United look well placed to find a way past Anderlecht in the Europa League, but there's no doubt Thursday night went down as an opportunity missed .
A valiant and whole-hearted performance from the home fighter, but Burns came up against an opponent in Julius Indongo who had the better of him from the first bell. Indongo was little known outside Namibia until December, when he stunned Russia's Eduard Troyanovsky in less than a minute in Moscow to win the IBF 140-pound title.
United's latest fixture congestion means they will play six games in 17 days. "But I've had it before". "But it is not an excuse because I still have to do well, I still have to do much more and much better than I did". It has been a tough 18 months for Shaw. United would go on to finish second behind champions Bristol City and gain promotion, with Chelsea, in their first season in existence, nine points behind in third.
Tripper has remained on the fringes for most part of the season, featuring in only seven of his side's 31 Premier League games, with his overall appearances amounting to 16.

The Blue Jays breathed a huge sigh of relief because it ended a seven-game slide in the worst start in the franchise's 40-year history. The two faced off in the second game of the season, with the Orioles ultimately winning 3-1 on April 5th.
Game three: Penguins at Blue Jackets - Minus suspended Matt Calvert, the Blue Jackets return to Columbus pressing to avoid a 3-0 series deficit. In the teams' 2015 series, Chicago won Game 1 in Nashville. Goaltender Pekka Rinne is doing everything in his power to lift the Predators to what would be a stunning upset of the Blackhawks in the Western Conference quarterfinals.
It will mark Garcia's first PGA Tour start as a major victor, but it'll also be a return to one of his favorite venues where he won in 2008 and lost in a playoff in 2015. But on the brink of disaster, Garcia battled back, salvaging a par at 13 and staying two back when Rose missed a three-foot birdie putt. Playing the 18th hole again, Rose got in trouble with an errant tee shot, forcing him to punch out from behind a giant magnolia tree.
Leicester have won all four of their Champions League home games this term, leading at the break in each of those victories and conceding just one goal across them.

Of course they have their preferred position but there are players within the squad who can utilise different positions and Daniel is one".
Middlesbrough, meanwhile, sit in 19th place on 24 points and are mired in an 0-6-8 league stretch. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger yesterday refused to deny the reports of the club's bank-busting offer. In football, you have to accept that you can win, lose or draw but you have to give everything to win the next game. "Playing with restriction doesn't help the performance".
The England global has become arguably the most valuable component for Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino since joining from MK Dons in 2015, although City may have been one club with the means to buy him. "The No. 10 role doesn't exist". It's like some [other] teams that play with two No. 8s. Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has insisted that it's too early to start comparing him to England greats as he's determined to achieve much more.
Heading into the second intermission, Rielly had played more than 35 minutes, Gardiner was over 34 minutes, the veteran Hunwick over 30 minutes - the most any of them had ever played in an National Hockey League game. But, folks, the Leafs have plenty of good penalty killers on the team capable of handling the job. Justin Williams , with two goals in Game 1 in addition to his battlefield experience, said earlier in the day the Caps hope to win that war of attrition.
Westbrook has lit up the Rockets, averaging 36.3 points, 9.0 rebounds and 9.3 assists in four meetings, but Houston has won three of the four games. With all the praise Hayward has rightfully received this season, he has struggled against Clippers, putting up only 15.7 points instead of his season average of 21.9 points.
Sure. (Maverick "Romo" jerseys sold out in the first quarter.) Was it a clever distraction from a team that was perhaps intentionally losing games, to better their draft picks in the off-season? The 37-year-old came out for warmups and not only made his lay ups, but he drained a 20-foot jumper in the face of Devin Harris .
You need to advance as a unit. You need to be able to battle through that adversity. "Lucky goal, but we'll take it". To be frank, the Senators have owned the Bruins with the forecheck all year. "When I get to that point, I'll know, whether it's tomorrow or the next game, we'll deal with it". It's that we gave two, where normally we don't do those mistakes.
This afternoon, great Pineda was on display. First baseman Logan Morrison homered for Tampa Bay's only run and is 9-for-27 with six RBIs in the early going. He was let down a bit by his fielding. Brett Gardner got on base after reaching on a strikeout and Ellsbury knocked him in. Catcher Kyle Higashioka, who made his first start for the Yankees, had caught Montgomery more than two dozen times in the minors.
Spurs, now second in the league, completed a remarkable comeback to defeat Swansea City 3-1 on Wednesday, while Chelsea remained on course for their fifth league title with a 2-1 win over fourth-placed Manchester City. "The way we played, I'm so satisfied". That being said , both teams can score and both teams have defensive issues so betting on both teams to score seems like a really good bet to me.
Crystal Palace boss Sam Allardyce likely isn't thinking about the summer yet, with their Premier League status not quite secured, even if it is edging closer to safety. Leicester captain Wes Morgan will miss a sixth straight match because of a back injury, although he may be fit to face Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo issued a timely message to his critics following his match-winning display against Bayern Munich on Wednesday. The former Real Madrid and Juventus player felt that his side should have scored more in a game that saw Carlo Ancelotti's men play with ten for around half an hour as Javi Martinez was sent-off for a second bookable offence.
There'll be a conversation with Wes and the medical staff but we won't take a gamble. Leicester striker Jamie Vardy completed just one pass during the game as the visitors focussed on keeping Atletico at bay rather than trying to create any opportunities themselves.
Weighing in at over 700 pounds, the statue will be secured with a steel rod and is said to have three quotes chosen by Robinson's family.

Shakib Al Hasan is expected to fill in for Lynn, who has still not been ruled out of IPL 2017. It is hard to pinpoint any weakness in the side they played in both games and do not need to make any major changes to their team. This could be Mohit's last chance to shine with the ball, else it could be Ishant, who will play in their fourth match. Head-to-head: KKR have a clear advantage over KXIP.
Bruce Cassidy however said defensive pairings could be tinkered with. Things get ramped up in the playoffs and Ottawa won't be able to outscore Boston. "You've got to keep getting pucks behind them". The Senators are the rare team to be led in scoring by a defenceman and that's former Norris Trophy victor Erik Karlsson , who could win that award for a third time.
Only eight players on Montreal's current roster were a part of that series. The Rangers finished fourth in the ultra-tough Metropolitan Division with 102 points. This actually was a hockey version of "Dumb and Dumber" because Julien only previously had been canned by the Boston Bruins for the sin of all coaching sins, not winning enough.
Matt Shoemaker labored through the inning, throwing 33 pitches. His last start was September 2, 2011, for Double-A Reading. "I'll defer to the medical department and they'll be able to update you on what's going on there". However, if Trout had not swiped second, Pujols would have likely grounded into an inning-ending double play. It's only because of the success of the overworked bullpen and the late-inning heroics of the hitters that the Angels are keeping their heads above water, with ...
Barcelona's Brazilian superstar Neymar's fans will miss his presence in the biggest La Liga clash against Real Madrid on April 23 after suspension in three games. Looking at the recent past, it appears nearly inevitable that Neymar will have to sit out at least one more game following the automatic suspension he'll receive due to getting the red card.
Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 80.7 percent of their opponents power plays.

Damian Lillard is having himself a series at this point with 42 points, seven rebounds, eight assists and two steals in the game.
Kyrgios has become his centrepiece, with the 21-year-old saying he had been tasked with becoming a leader from the start.

Then, in the 80th minute, De Bruyne chipped the ball into the Saints six-yard box and Aguero nodded home at the far post to seal an ultimately comfortable, and potentially precious, victory. Sane, Aguero and Silva all had efforts on goal, and with half-time approaching, City thought they were about to break the deadlock. When Pep Guardiola took over at Manchester City last summer, one of the last players anyone would have expected him to drop was Sergio Aguero.
The position of Madrid chief Zinedine Zidane has also come under examination, using the former France star indicating that his future is out of his hands despite his side challenging to get a league and Champions League double. "I want [the fans] to be very happy because I have always tried to honour this shirt, learning from guys like Raul, showing team spirit and respecting those at the stadium".
Paul ranks third in plus/minus after only MVP front runners Russell Westbrook and James Harden. J.J., on the other hand, is primarily a catch-and-shoot guy who loves to hang out behind the three point line. Whatever happens from this point forward will be hard to project. Jeff Withey will play a more prominent role with the star out, while Trey Lyles and Boris Diaw should get more minutes in the rotation.
Sam Allardyce believes Arsenal were tactically naive in their embarrassing 3-0 defeat against his Crystal Palace side on Monday. "In the second half they were stronger than us but the second goal was unfortunate and the penalty killed our game".

It's quite technical and there are hard braking points; it's easy to lock up or miss an apex slightly, and you need to get the vehicle well balanced.
And it is true Lundqvist had the most inconsistent regular season of his career in 2016-17. Kreider, who led the Rangers with 28 goals in the regular season, expects to hear from the Canadiens fans. Lundqvist is ready for the postseason and if he can keep confident and stay in the right mindset, he will have a good performance. The Blueshirts were fueled in Game 1 by the goaltending heroics of Henrik Lundqvist , who continues his solid playoff career despite a mediocre 56-59 record.
Although debatable, it is not a hot take to say that the Toronto Raptors have the best bench in the National Basketball Association. They even learned to win without Lowry, which was a feat for a team that often looked lost on the court without him.

He has had a great first full season with Huddersfield and they look certain for the Sky Bet Championship play-offs after years of the West Yorkshire being stuck in mid-table mediocrity.

Southampton find themselves four points out of 8 place with two games in-hand of West Brom.

Samoa took the lead through Gordon Langkilde's converted try, but captain Andrew Amonde drew level to make the scores 7-7 at halftime. Those are the two teams that have set the mark this season.

Barcelona play Real Sociedad before travelling to Real Madrid later in April, meaning Neymar is nearly certain to miss the El Clasico. The Brazilian had already booked for obstructing the taking of a free kick by tying his laces in front of the ball.
Earlier, Misbah called curtains on his worldwide career, announcing that the upcoming three-match series against West Indies beginning April 22 in Barbados will be his last.
