first_imgLevski coach Petar Hubchev spoke after the 0: 2 loss to Lokomotiv (Plovdiv) in the first semifinal of the Bulgarian Cup.“We lost the first half.

The first 10 minutes we were more or less well, but then … very far from them. We didn’t win a second ball, “the specialist began. “Let’s say that this is a coincidence. We have situations, but we have to start scoring. Our players need more confidence. The lack of Paulinho and Zhivko Milanov is part of the unpleasant things happening with us, but we will not I comment on them. The matches are arranged in such a way that they are difficult enough. Let’s think about the next match, “said Hubchev.“We must finally fight in it,” concluded Petar Hubchev.

Preview of League matches – Thursday 3.9.

first_imgWednesday night will be of interest again for football fans after a long time, as the first rounds of the League of Nations will start. The recently introduced format promises several interesting battles on the first day, the biggest draw of which will certainly be the duel of two football powers – Germany and the Spaniards. Teams from Germany and the Spaniards will take part in the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart on Wednesday evening. The two biggest favorites to advance from the group with serial number 4 in League A. The Spaniards already have five victories in big tournaments to their credit, the Germans even nine. The match between these European football powers is always an experience full of dramatic moments and emotions, and now it will be no different, even if the spectators will not be there and the atmosphere will of course suffer as a result.The Germans have a very successful qualification for the European Championships, which the team of coach Joachim Löw really did well. In eight matches, the Germans have won seven times, losing only once. They scored a total of 21 points and finished the group in first place ahead of the predatory Netherlands, scoring only seven goals and scoring 30 themselves.Of course, the last competitive duel of the Germans, who scored six goals for helpless Northern Ireland, was reflected a lot in this issue. And this was actually the last official duel of the German squadron, because then the coronavirus crisis hit. Given that almost ten months have passed since the last sharp duel, it will be interesting to see how both teams cope. The coach of Joachim Löw is confident that his team will prepare well.“A lot of water has run out since we last met. I was curious what form the players would come in. The season was extremely demanding and long for them, which of course will affect the physics and harmony of the whole team. But I’m very happy about that. that we can rejoin and play a fierce duel. Coronavir has hit our lives hard and endangered him, so we all need to act very responsibly. But at the same time, we want to enjoy the national team and gain important points. “The last time the Germans faced Spain was in 2018, but it was only a friendly match. The last time the two teams played a competition duel was in 2010 in the semifinals of the World Cup, in which La Roja won by one goal. The Germans lost to the Spaniards seven times in a total of 23 matches in the senior national team, while they managed to win nine duels.Spain also managed to qualify for the European Championships, dominating its group without defeat. Only twice did the opponents share points, otherwise they won eight times in ten duels. Coach Luis Enrique could have been proud of this team and wasn’t afraid to make some surprising moves this year. For example, he nominated Ansu Fat, a young man from Barcelona.However, some names were dropped from the nomination for suspected coronavirus. On the one hand, Marcos Asensio was returning home, having a knee problem. The infected Mikel Oyarzabal also returned home, and Wolves star striker Adam Traoré also had problems with the tests. Enrique also spoke at a press conference.“If the championship were played tomorrow and it was not postponed, this would be exactly my team. I am 100% convinced of every player I nominated. Whether he is seventeen, nineteen or thirty-three, each player has a lot of responsibility and must do his utmost to our common success. I hope to have Traore at my disposal, because it is a diamond that has incredible potential for me. “last_img read more

Three takeaways from No. 8 Georgia’s win over No. 6 Florida

first_img Oklahoma State’s Tylan Wallace to miss rest of season with torn ACL, reports say GO GET IT Van Jefferson💪Florida (+6.5) makes this a one-possession game! pic.twitter.com/uZIRPBdOiW— PointsBet Sportsbook (@PointsBetUSA) November 2, 2019But Georgia wasn’t rattled by Florida’s comeback as the Bulldogs responded by scoring eight points in the final quarter to stay out in front.The intensity between these two powerhouses made for one of the most passionate rivalries in college athletics, and neither side disappointed this time around. Related News No. 8 Georgia took control of the SEC on Saturday after topping No. 6 Florida 24-17 in a heated rivalry matchup, and the Bulldogs are making a strong case for themselves in the race to the College Football Playoff.The Bulldogs held a comfortable lead through the first three quarters, but the Gators mounted a fourth-quarter comeback that began with an impressive touchdown catch by Van Jefferson. Here are three takeaways from the Bulldogs’ big win:Lawrence Cager maximizes Georgia’s potentialLawrence Cager separated his shoulder earlier this season and left his team’s lone loss of the season against South Carolina with rib issues, forcing him to miss the following game against Kentucky. But after taking time off to recover from his injury, the grad transfer assumed his position as Jake Fromm’s favorite target.Cager had a team-high 19 receptions for 245 yards and three scores following Georgia’s loss to the Gamecocks and exploded for seven receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown against Florida. His biggest play of the day came on a 52-yard reception in the fourth quarter.Patience is a virtue. ⏳Jake Fromm has all day to throw after the play-action fake and he connects with Lawrence Cager for the long TD❗️🐶 Georgia (-6.5) leads 24-10.pic.twitter.com/zkPHqGaN4L— The Action Network (@ActionNetworkHQ) November 2, 2019Pairing a healthy Cager with D’Andre Swift and Fromm makes for a dangerous offense that can compete with any team.Florida’s ground game was nonexistentThe Gators are a long way away from being elite rushers, but they’ll have to do better than they did Saturday to challenge their competition. While Florida was able to go toe-to-toe with Georgia in the air, its ground game was embarrassing.Florida tallied 21 net rushing yards and averaged a measly 1.1 yards per attempt in the contest. The Gators’ leading rusher Lamical Perine only managed 31 yards on 7 carries. Georgia wasn’t spectacular either, but the Bulldogs’ 119 rushing yards gave them a significant advantage.The Gators picked the wrong day to be a one-dimensional football team, and it could cost them in the long run. The game was won on third downGeorgia controlled the flow of Saturday’s game early on by dominating opportunities to convert on third down. Florida’s defense stayed on the field because the Bulldogs extended drives extremely well.Georgia converted 12 of its 18 third-down attempts while the Gators went 2-of-9 on their own chances. No third-down play was more important than the flat-footed throw Fromm made to seal the deal for the Bulldogs in the fourth quarter. The coaching staff kept trusting his arm ⁠— and it paid off in the end.JAKE FROMM 💪(via @CBSSports) pic.twitter.com/aUqoJRnJqM— Bleacher Report CFB (@BR_CFB) November 2, 2019The Bulldogs still have No. 11 Auburn and Texas A&M on their schedule this year.
