Football News UEFA Champions League: Barcelona struggle to 0-0 draw against Lyon

first_imgThe visitors — who started with Sergi Roberto in midfield rather than the out-of-form Philippe Coutinho — had good reason to be wary of their hosts, who have excelled in big games this season.  Lyon still unbeaten in EuropeBruno Genesio’s team had taken four points from a possible six against Manchester City in the group stage and recently won at home to Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1. They are still unbeaten in Europe this season, although this was their sixth consecutive draw. “It’s a satisfying result because it leaves us with a chance for the second leg, and we didn’t concede. If we can score at the Camp Nou we’ll have a chance of going through,” said Genesio.He admitted that he had hoped for an even better performance, but Lyon was missing their World Cup-winning captain Nabil Fekir due to suspension here. It was the 21-year-old Terrier who surprisingly started in his place, and he delivered the most exciting moment of the first half for the crowd of almost 58,000 with a thunderous strike from 20 yards out in the ninth minute that was tipped onto the bar by Marc-Andre ter Stegen. The same player later shot over at the end of a fantastic move, while Houssem Aouar had earlier been denied by the goalkeeper, but it was Barcelona who enjoyed the longer spells of possession.Ousmane Dembele — one of two Frenchmen in the away line-up — came closest for them in the first half, although their best chances came after he had been replaced by Coutinho midway through the second period. Suarez came within inches of breaking the deadlock 20 minutes from time, firing narrowly wide from Jordi Alba’s cutback. He has now gone 16 away matches without scoring in the competition.Coutinho had a powerful shot beaten away by Anthony Lopes, with the Lyon goalkeeper also frustrating Messi and Sergio Busquets as Barcelona dominated but departed without a potentially precious away goal.”It is a little bit of a disappointment, but there is still the second leg to come and we hope to do better,” said defender Clement Lenglet. At least they extended their unbeaten record against Lyon to seven matches, but there remains hope for the French club ahead of the return. Lyon: Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde shrugged off his team’s struggles in front of goal after they were held to a 0-0 draw away at Lyon in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie. The Spanish side had most of the chances at the Groupama Stadium on Tuesday, with Luis Suarez firing just wide in the second half, although it was Lyon who came the closest when Martin Terrier hit the bar early on.  Lionel Messi and co. were once again left frustrated on the road at the business end of the competition, and have now gone six away matches without winning in the Champions League knockout rounds, scoring just a single goal in that time. It is a run that goes back three years. Desperate to end Real Madrid’s recent European dominance, Barca must now finish the job when the teams meet again at the Camp Nou on March 13, but Lyon remain in the tie.Barcelona’s form needs to improve between now and then, though — they have drawn four of their last five matches in all, and have scored just once, from a penalty, in their last three outings. “We played good football, but you have to hit the target as well, and we didn’t,” Valverde said. “We are on the right road, though, and the tie is still up in the air. We will try to win it in front of our fans.” He added: “I am not happy with the result, but I am happy with the performance and with what we created. We didn’t score, but that is how it is. It is not easy to win away from home in the Champions League.” For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.

Melton will sit out for the rest of season

first_imgUSC announced on Thursday that sophomore shooting guard De’Anthony Melton would not play for the remainder of the season. Melton has not played in any games so far this year. He was held out in the midst of an internal investigation into his involvement in the Tony Bland bribery case. The assistant coach was indicted in November. As a freshman in 2016-17, Melton impressed, averaging 8.3 points points per game. Now his career at USC is up in the air. Photo by Katie Chin | Daily Trojan“Based on information discovered through its internal investigation regarding the receipt of extra benefits, primarily to a close family friend of De’Anthony Melton, USC has concluded that De’Anthony will not compete with the USC men’s basketball team in the 2017-18 season,” the University announced on its official athletics website. Prosecutors told the Los Angeles Times they believe Melton’s family friend, David Elliot was offered a cash incentive to influence the player into signing with sports agent Christian Dawkins once he decided to leave for the NBA. Bland pleaded not guilty to the charges in November. In addition to Melton, Bland is accused of funneling payments to a companion of a different unidentified recruit in the 2018 class. Melton himself has not been accused of accepting improper cash benefits. “It’s sort of the whole impression they’re concerned about,” Melton’s attorney Vicki I. Podberesky told the LA Times. “It’s very disappointing, but not unexpected.” He will remain on scholarship, but he can no longer travel with the team. The school left a 2018-19 return open as a possibility in its announcement. At least one player did not take too kindly to the news. Junior power forward Chimezie Metu voiced his frustration with the USC athletic department on Twitter. “Punishing innocent ppl… I see what y’all on now @USC_Athletics,” Metu wrote. He followed it up by tweeting, “‘He didn’t do anything wrong but let’s suspend him bc we’re selfish and have to protect our image’… makes sense.” Last season, Melton averaged 8.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game as a true freshman. Without him, the Trojans have a 12-6 record.last_img read more
