As we know, Italy managed to defeat La Furi Roja in the Euro 2016 Round of 16 and can prepare for an even harder battle in the Quarter-Finals.
Italy and Spain were drawn together for the Euro 2016 Round of 16 encounter where La Furia Roja were favourites according to all sports scores news. All sportsbooks favoured Spain to go through and qualify for the Euro 2016 QFs yet the Italian side upset all odds with a relatively easy, 2-0 defeat against Vicente Del Bosque’s men.Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima was incapable of saving his team despite the fact that he was having a great tournament all in all. Elimination was at an expensive price for Spain manager del Bosque: He resigned a few days earlier and now one of the biggest questions at online sportsbooks in Spain is who will be the successor of the former successful manager of Real Madrid.
Spain are home by now and the pre-season will start for most Furia Roja stars, including Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima. The captain of Real Madrid must be really annoyed by the result as he got used to being successful and winning. Something which he and his national team has been incapable of doing in the past two years: after being humiliated in the 2014 World Cup, they once again made an early exit at Euro 2016, with a rather disappointing performance.
Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima must be waiting for the new Spain manager as he is the leader and the team captain of the national team as well as his club, Real Madrid. The Sevillan central back signed a new contract last year at Real Madrid. The Sergio Ramos signature on the paper made sure that he will belong to the Royal Club until 2020. That signature shut down tons of rumours about him leaving the Galacticos for joining Manchester United. These rumours were, at some point, regarded as one of the most certain gambling facts according to many online sportsbooks in the UK.
The European Championship is about to reach to its finish and Sergio Ramos El Heroe de la Decima will not be in it any longer, for which he must be really upset. However, he must accept that his national team does not dominate the football world any longer and it’s time for a new era with new set of players s well as a new manager. Most probably the new manager will still count on the team captain as there can be no complaints about his performances.
On the other hand, Italy will face World Cup holder Germany in the Quarter Finals of Euro 2016. According to the latest gambling news, Germany will be favourites for the encounter, yet it’s time to take Italy seriously. They already proved that they have a great team by easily defeating title-favourite Belgium in the first matchday of Euro 2016 and they also knocked out Euro title holder Spain in the Round of 16 with a pretty confident team performance.
Italy are not underdogs any longer at this point of the tournament as they have openly declared their intention of winning the trophy. Should they defeat Germany as well, they would definitely be the strongest candidates towards victory: defeating the World Cup holder after eliminating the Euro holder would be a major confidence-boost for Conte’s men.
On the other hand, Portugal eliminated Poland on penalties and are waiting for their opponent in the semi-finals, which will be the winner of the Wales v Belgium encounter. The winner of the Germany v Italy game will face the winner of the France v Iceland clash where the Icelandic dreams are expected to end finally, as the hosting nation are clear favourites for the clash.
According to the latest gambling news, the chances for Hungary to win Euro 2016 are getting better and better. This is mainly caused by the amazing performances they keep showing at Euro 2016. They are still unbeaten at the tournament, they won Group F upon defeating Austria my 2-0 and tying both Iceland and Portugal, respectively by 1-1 and 3-3.
Hungary to win Euro 2016 is actually among the top bet recently as their odds are pretty high: 81.00 (80/1) at Bet365, 101.00 (100/1) at other popular online sportsbooks such as BetVictor, Paddy Power and Bwin. Could they do a Greece of 2004 in 2016? It would definitely be one of the biggest surprises in football history, but we should not believe it’s impossible.
The Austrians believed that it is impossible for them not to defeat such a weak team like the Hungarian. We all know how that ended: 2 fantastic goals from Hungary’s Szalai and Stieber and zero from Austria. After that they played like a real big team against Iceland: the Nordics took the lead in the first half due to a controversial penalty, but Hungary pushed hard in the second half and did manage to equalize in the 88th minute with an own goal. They created enough chances to win by 3-4 goals but the finishing never worked.
And then they faced Portugal, who were in desperate need of a win while Hungary were sure to qualify for the Round of 16 when the match started. Unmotivated Hungary versus overly motivated Portugal, that’s what all gambling online guides predicted but that’s completely not how they game looked like: it was a perfect game from both sides. and this was the type of “joga bonito” that an average football actually enjoys watching.
Hungary took the lead early on, but Cristiano Ronaldo assisted and Nani equalized in the end of the first half. Free kick master Dzsudzsák scored as soon as the second half started: his free kick changed its way on the wall and hence found its way to the goal. Cristiano Ronaldo equalized with a terrific finishing with his back heel which was one of the most beautiful goals at Euro 2016. However, it was not enough: Hungary captain Dzsudzsák had another free kick, he hit the wall but collected the ball. He shot. And Dzsudzsák scored against Portugal for the second time. And then as if it was on repeat: Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo, who was playing like a true captain and world class player, which he obviously is, equalized again. Portugal went down 3 times and stood up 3 times, however Hungary were also rather heroic at this game. Terrific performance by the team and an incredible surprise from them throughout the entire tournament.
For Hungary to win Euro 2016, they must keep on playing like they have been so far and taking advantage of the fact that all opponents looked down on them. Everyone counted on underdogs Hungary finishing last in the group and that it’s a sure 3-points for all their rivals. That’s not really how it happened in Group F: they just won the group without a single defeat and with some amazing moments.
Bernd Storck’s men will play against Belgium in the Euro 2016 Round of 16. Belgium are among the top 5 favourites to win Euro 2016. One of the most obvious gambling facts is that betting on Hungary against Belgium would be rather optimistic and you can bet on Hungary to win at online sportsbooks for pretty high odds. Should they defeat Belgium, the chances for Hungary to win Euro 2016 would become even better as the winner of Wales v Northern Ireland would be waiting for them in the quarter finals. And oh well, anything is possible and in a world full of dullness and boredom, why shouldn’t we hope for a surprise team to win Euro 2016?
FC Barcelona played against Sevilla on Sunday night. The Spanish Cup final game was held in Madrid at Estadio Vicente Calderón, stadium of Atlético de Madrid. Online gambling news predicted Barcelona to become Cope del Rey winners once again, however it was not at all too easy for them.
In fact, the game started like all finals should: 2 equal sides, fighting for eventual glory and success of winning the golden medal. Both teams created several chances, however they failed to score in every single situation they had.
But the game was about to become really one-sided just before the half time. It happened in the 36th minute. Sevilla created a clear cut chance and Gameiro was about to go one on one against ter Stegen. However, Mascherano did not let that happen: he grabbed Gamerio’s shirt, and to make sure he won’t be able to go on, he pulled him down to the ground with himself.
The Argentinian’s purpose was crystal clear and unquestionable, only one thing was going on in his mind: “I must stop him”. And so he did. Unfortunately for him and his team, he was not doing the right thing according to the official rule book of football, even though he was most probably doing the right thing according to his own heart and mind.
The referee didn’t show any mercy. He rewarded the central defender with an immediate red card, forcing Barca to play the remaining minutes of the game with only 10 men. The referee’s brave decision increased Sevilla’s chances to win, according to most live sports scores reporting sites.
Despite the fact that Sevilla were playing one man more than their rival in the Copa del Rey final, and that they were created lots of chances in those remaining 10 minutes of the first half, they couldn’t score any goals so the half time result remained 0-0.
The second half started the way it was expected: Luis Enrique made a substitute because of the red card. Ivan Rakitic left the field, Jeremy Mathieu took his place in hopes of strengthening the defensive line of the Blaugrana.
As expected, the Andalusian side controlled the midfield in the beginning of the second half. That was mostly made possibly thanks to Mascherano being sent off, obviously. The Sevillanos tried to put the ball into ter Stegen’s goal on several occasions. They even hit the post in the 51st minute, Banega’s shooting changed it’s place thanks to Piqué’s interception. Barca were lucky this time.
Just one minute passed by, but Barcelona received another set of horrible news: they led a counterattack in which Suarez put the high ball back to Messi. The world class forward wanted to head the ball but instead of the ball, he found a Sevilla defender’s head.
He was knocked out for a minute, but the even worse happened to his Uruguayan mate: Luis Suarez got injured because of his pass. He could come back and play for a few more minutes but then he couldn’t continue the game. Rafinha replaced Suarez in the 57th minute. Cameras caught Suarez crying for having to miss the remainings of the Spanish Cup final, being unable to help increase the number of Barca trophies this season.
Sevilla continued to control the classic derby, having created several chances mostly for Gameiro to score. However, they failed all of them, mostly because of the incredible performance shown by Gerard Piqué, who made many important tackles and interceptions when it was needed the most.
For the last 10 minutes of the game, the pace speeded up incredibly: A member of the Barca staff was sent off by the referee for saying something inappropriate in the 83rd minute after a controversial foul. 10 minutes later we could see another red card, but this time it was for the Andalusian side.
Neymar was about to go one on one against the keeper, Evar Banega didn’t let that happen: he tackled the Brazilian, without even trying to pretend he was going for the ball. Similar situation to Mascherano’s, the red card was merited in both cases. It was in the additional time of the first 90 minutes, which ended in 0-0. Extra Time.
At this point, the latest gambling news obviously believed that Barca trophies this season will be increased by 1 by the end of the 30 minutes extra time. They hold up against Sevilla by 0-man less, they are clear favourites on 10 v 10.
And no surprise has happened in the extra time. Barcelona, as expected, were playing as the dominant favourite of the Spanish Cup final. Sevilla managed to keep the goalless score for only 6 minutes in the extra time as in the 97th, Jordi Alba scored the Copa del Rey winning goal from Messi’s perfect assist.
The extra time was obviously dominated by Luis Enrique’s men. They created as many chances as Sevilla did; the only difference being that the Blaugrana were capable of putting the ball into the net. Twice, in fact: Messi assisted again in the 122th minute, Neymar scored this time and set the final result: 2-0 for Barcelona.
Barca trophies list this season has increased to 2 thanks to being Copa del Rey winner after triumphing La Liga as well. Barca win cup again, adding another one to their incredible amount of domestic triumphs. The Blaugrana have already been ahead of Real Madrid in regards of Copa del Rey wins by 28-19, however they still have a lots of La Liga titles to catch up with the Royal Club’s 32 golden medals.

State Attorney General Luther Strange claimed DFS in Alabama illegal and sent letters for daily fantasy sports operators DraftKings and FanDuel demanding to stop their respective businesses in the Heart of Dixie.
After declaring DFS illegal in Alabama, AG Strange ordered DraftKings and FanDuel to stop their real money operation in the state by May 1. He argued that real money daily fantasy contests qualify as illegal gambling according to Alabama gambling laws.
Latest gambling news quoted Strange, saying, “As Attorney General, it is my duty to uphold Alabama law, including the laws against illegal gambling. Daily fantasy sports operators claim that they operate legally under Alabama law. However, paid daily fantasy sports contests are in fact illegal gambling under Alabama law.”
— Darren Heitner (@DarrenHeitner) April 6, 2016
According to Alabama gambling laws, illegal gambling also occurs when somebody makes a wager on a contest of chance, even if skill is involved. Strange argues that skill is needed to assemble a fantasy sport team indeed, but the bettors have no control over the performance of their fantasy players. Any unforeseen event like an injury can influence player performance, so these contests rely on chance and therefore was claimed DFS in Alabama illegal gambling.
Keith Urban appeared at the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACMs) in Las Vegas, Nevada last weekend with her wife and the Nicole Kidman gambling secret was revealed.
Kidman might have joined her husband, New Zealand-born country musician Keith Urban in Las Vegas for an award ceremony only, but he eventually gave a considerable boost to the image of gambling. The 48-year-old Australian actress and her husband made a confession their regular visits to Las Vegas and their wagering habits, latest gambling news report. So, you can say to yourself: “Nicole Kidman gambling? Well, I would just do the same.”
But the point is that she made a few cabbages throughout her career that also brought her an Academy Award for impersonating Virginia Woolf in the 2002 drama, The Hours. So, she has some coins to gamble away, but she is still very controlled when it comes to wagering. Actually the Nicole Kidman gambling habits could be a good pattern for anyone, who places a wager.
“She’s very good,” Urban commented the Nicole Kidman gambling news. “She’s disciplined.”
— Music-News.com (@MusicNewsWeb) April 4, 2016
Kidman herself admitted that she is far from being a pro, but it is obvious that she is not an addict either. She said, “Well, I’m not very good. I have a little amount of money, I go and bet that and then I’m done. I’m that kind of gambler, I’m not going to bet the house.”
Okay, if you are en expert of gambling facts you are obviously encouraged to play with higher wagers, but pay attention to what she said and listen to the advice: Never bet the house!
A Texas lotto jackpot winning ticket was sold in Houston area, but the identity of the $11.75 million winner is unclear yet.
Someone bought a Texas lotto jackpot winning ticket for Wednesday’s drawing in Tomball, TX. That lottery ticket has all the six winning numbers: 5, 14, 16, 17, 39 and 46.

Last week 4,082 people picked the same lottery numbers in the UK national lotto game. They got five right, but ended up collecting £15 only instead of the usual sum around £1,000. How can you avoid such a disaster of picking bad lottery numbers?
The 23rd March draw produced a strange set of numbers. 7, 14, 21, 35 and 42 were all amongst the six lucky numbers, latest gambling news report. What is interesting about these numbers that they are all multiplies of seven.
Seven is not just a very interesting number mathematically. It is also the most popular number around according to a 2014 survey. So, it is no surprise at all that a lot of players pick these numbers. This can be easily your favourite number too, but its popularity makes a set of numbers like this bad lottery numbers.
Since a lot of players pick the same and therefore bad lottery numbers, it means that if these numbers are drawn, there will be a lot of winners. And these winners naturally have to share the prize pool. If the numbers 7, 14, 21, 28, 35 and 42 would have been drawn, there would be ca. 4,000 lotto jackpot winners with lotto jackpots below £6,000, instead of the £24 million.
— Lottery UK (@Lottery_UK) March 24, 2016
To avoid a lotto jackpot catastrophe like this, you should pick numbers that are not that popular amongst lotto players. Experts of gambling facts might know that the likes of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and similar sequences are bad lottery numbers, since a lot of players tend to play these sets. You should find your individual lucky numbers or just play with randomly generated numbers – and you can also do this via internet lottery conveniently.
Picking individual numbers or random numbers doesn’t mean that your winning chances are bigger now, but it definitely means that had your numbers drawn you will bag a considerably bigger sum than playing with bad lottery numbers.
So, if you want to have a shot at some of the biggest lottery jackpots around the world, go to EuroLotto, check the gambling bonuses, pick your individual or randomly generated numbers and play lottery online!

The Scot tennis player has won his semi-final, so the fourth Djokovic v Murray final at the Australian Open is set up.
Andy Murray defeated Canadian Milos Raonic 4-6, 7-5, 6-7, 6-4, 6-2, coming back from a handicap twice in the second semi of the 2016 Australian Open. This leaves us with another Djokovic v Murray final, the fourth after 2011, 2013 and 2015. So the third time in the last four Melbourne tournaments a Djokovic v Murray final will enclose the event.
As experts of gambling facts might know, this will be the sixth Djokovic v Murray final at Grand Slam tournaments overall with the Briton winning only one of them, the 2013 Wimbledon showdown. So, their head to head record in Grand Slam finals is 4–1 to Djokovic at the moment. Don’t expect that the picture would change much in 2016.
Murray was on fire towards the end of this semi-final. He played unstoppable tennis in the last two sets, especially in the very last. However, even this kind of effort wouldn’t be enough against the world’s No. 1 on Sunday. According to odds posted for the Djokovic v Murray final, the Serbian, who thrashed Roger Federer in the semis, is a very strong favorite. To last until five sets would be an impressive performance from the Briton.
— Australian Open (@AustralianOpen) January 29, 2016
Latest gambling news report that Djokovic’s win is priced at 1.18 (2/11) by Bwin Sports. You won’t get online betting odds much higher than that, given the Serbian won’t injure himself while picking up a dropped coin in front of a betting shop in Melbourne. (What an Australian open betting scandal would that be!) Murray goes for internet betting odds of 5.00 (4/1) at Bwin Sports, this excellent provider of tennis betting odds. This is also a reasonable price, right among the best Djokovic v Murray odds you will find at online sportsbooks.
In the Spanish La Liga, BBC and MSN all scored last weekend. It was the first time ever that all players from the Real Madrid and Barcelona forward-lines have found the net.
BBC and MSN all scored 89 goals so far in the league season. Real Madrid’s BBC has a tally of 45, while Barca’s forwards racked up 44 goals. However, that was the first time that these six players have scored on the same league matchday. And this was massive for one online betting player.
Real Madrid have defeated Sporting Gijon 5–1 in the second league game under manager Zinedine Zidane, latest gambling news report. Gareth Bale opened scoring in the 7th minute, while Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema both have scored braces.
Barcelona were also one-goal – and one man – ahead in the 7th minute through Lionel Messi’s penalty. This was supported by a goal from Neymar, a hat-trick from Luis Suarez and one more from Ivan Rakitic, making it 6–0.
This also meant that BBC and MSN all scored (Bale, Benzema, Crisitiano and Messi, Suarez, Neymar), for the first time ever in the Spanish La Liga. Experts of gambling facts might know that it almost happened in the 13th round of the 2015/16 La Liga season that BBC and MSN all scored. However, Karim Benzema wasn’t able to find the net back then.
This gambling result meant that a lucky online betting player, who had a bet slip with BBC to score odds of 4.50 (7/2) and MSN to score odds of 6.50 (11/2). Since BBC and MSN all scored, he had an excellent GBP 146.25 return on a GBP 5 bet. It seems that these exceptional football players not only provide entertainment, but it’s also beneficial to put some money on them from time to time.
Said Silver on FiveThirtyEight’s Hot Takedown podcast: “My view is that daily fantasy should be a regulated industry in New York and elsewhere, and I think ultimately that should be a decision for the voters.”
Silver is the first head of a major sports league to comment on the ongoing DFS controversy, and the most outspoken advocate of legal sports gambling. He made his opinion first known in October, when he told ESPN that the NBA is not considering “withdrawing or backing off our relationship with the [DFS] industry”, and that “it’s something that we’re deeply engaged in on the broader subject of daily fantasy-slash-sports betting.” He also had written a New York Times piece about why sports betting should be legalized shortly after entering into an equity deal with FanDuel.
The most pressing question in American gambling laws right now is whether DFS is a game of skill, or of chance. Silver declined to discuss whether he believes that DFS constitutes as gambling or not, but did say that the legalization and regulation of both DFS and sports gambling would be in the best interest of major sports leagues.
Said the NBA commissioner: “One of the reasons I’ve been pushing to legalize sports betting is not because that I’m necessarily an advocate of sports betting, it’s because all the research shows that it’s a multi-hundred-billion dollar business just in the United States right now.”
“In terms of the integrity of the sports league, it’s only bad news for us when it continues to remain underground… [to] the extent there are fantasy sites or flat-out betting sites, where consumers identify themselves by putting credit cards in and then can be tracked the same way the stock market can track buying and selling, then that’s much healthier for the leagues.”
In a cringe worth mix-up, the wrong Miss Universe was crowned by host Steve Harvey during the competition finale.
Gambling news is flooded with videos of the awkward beauty pageant finale, in which the wrong Miss Universe was crowned for three minutes before Harvey realized his mistake and revealed the rightful winner.
Harvey named Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, as the winner after he misread the results card. When he noticed he’d said the wrong name, he quickly corrected himself, saying that Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, was the true Miss Universe 2015.
Those who bet on Miss Universe are no doubt furious over Harvey’s monumental mistake. At least the Miss Colombia bettors are, as they won’t be receiving a payout even if their choice was named. However, the Miss Universe blunder is good news for people who put money on Miss Philippines.
Like most competitions, many online gambling sites offer betting lines for Miss Universe, with one of the most popular being Paddy Power. After Harvey’s embarrassing misreading, we’re betting that ‘announcing the wrong name’ will be an option on the site for Miss Universe 2016!
It has been officially announced at online gambling news that Pep Guardiola will leave FC Bayern Munich at the end of this season and Carlo Ancelotti will take over his place. This piece of information has given source to many of the latest transfer rumours, such as Lewandowski might be leaving FC Bayern. However, the team is said to already have found his replacement. Let’s check out the latest football transfer news now!
Goal reported that Carlo Ancelotti has been officially named as the replacement for Pep Guardiola, with whom Bayern Munich has dominated German football ever since his arrival in 2013. He won several cups including 2 Bundesliga titles, one German Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup trophy.
However, his contract with the Bavarian side is coming to an end as soon as this season finishes. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern Munich’s Chief Executive Officer, has announced that Guardiola’s contract will not be renewed and will be replaced by the Italian manager, starting from next season.
Rummenigge did not fail to praise both managers as his team can proud to be working together with the best managers in the world. He highlighted the successful years that Guardiola has been achieving in Bayern, and have praised the amazing experience that Ancelotti has as a manager.
Meanwhile, Daily Mail reports that Carlo Ancelotti has already started planning his new project at the helm of Bayern Munich. According to gambling news in Germany, the Italian wants to give key responsibilities to Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich’s 27-year-old striker.
The Polish forward however, has been linked to Real Madrid on several occasions ever since the season has started. Cristiano Ronaldo is going to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season according to the latest transfer rumours, and Florentino Pérez wants to replace him with a top class striker. His choice would be Robert Lewandowski.
However, Ancelotti has signed for Bayern Munich based on several conditions. One of those was that Bayern Munich will be able keep the world-class striker in the team. Ancelotti believes Lewandowski and Douglas Costa are the main people in the attacking third of his new Bayern Munich.
Nevertheless, the Italian manager can worry about his previous team crossing his plans. Lewandowski’s agent, Cezary Kucharski, has been spotted at the Bernabéu stadium at the Real Madrid vs Getafe game and latest transfer rumours indicate he was negotiating about the possible move of his customer. Lewandowski told AS that he would prefer not commenting the rumours in connection with his future.
On the other hand, AS reported that Carlo Ancelotti is not a man without a plan. Even if Real Madrid would manage to capture his number 9, he would not have to be overly dramatic since he is said to already have found the perfect replacement for the Polish striker.
Ancelotti is said to be interested in Napoli’s striker, Gonzalo Higuaín, who has been playing in superb form so far this season. Should Los Blancos purchase Lewandowski, Bayern would try to buy the former-Galactico, who has scored 16 goals in 17 games in this season at the Italian team.
According to the latest gambling news, Gonzalo Higuaín seems very similar to Robert Lewandowski in regards of style and abilities. The Argentine’s contract expires in 2018, however there is a buy-out clause in his contract: whoever wants to purchase him, the team will have to pay EUR 94 million.

Barcelona and Sevilla played a UEFA Super Cup final in Georgia that will stuck in our memories forever.
Tbilisi hosted a game on Tuesday night that will remain in the memories of sports scores followers for long. The UEFA Super Cup was special before it started. This was the first such game in Tbilisi, Georgia. And this was the first occasion, when the Europa League winners arrived with a spot secured in the Champions League through their cup victory. Not to mention that we saw another all-Spanish final.
Luis Enrique’s side had the task to reach their fifth UEFA Super Cup victory, but they almost slipped on the way. However they only threw their three-goal lead, not the whole game. Pedro saved them again, and probably for the last time. Barcelona leveled AC Milan’s achievement, winning a record five UEFA Super Cups. Though Pedro is about to leave, this team have the chance to defend their Champions League title. They are 4.00 (3/1) favorites at Bet365 in that regard, while Sevilla is available at 81.00 (80/1).
It was Pedro Rodriguez again. The forward, who won everything a footballer ever can, scored the winner in the 115th minute of a UEFA Super Cup. He did it again after 2009. In the same minute. And this will possibly be his last goal for Barcelona. At least this term, as latest gambling news report that he is on the way to Manchester United indeed.
Sevilla’s Argentine midfielder Ever Banega opened the scoring with a beautiful free-kick in the third minute. Marc-Andre ter Stegen had no chance. This was the fastest goal in a UEFA Super Cup final. However, in further 13 minutes it was Barcelona who had the lead. Lionel Messi first mirrored Banega’s free-kick and found Beto’s net from just outside the penalty area. Then he smashed in another free-kick to the near corner from much further, stunning many of those, who follow live sports results.
Barcelona added two more through Rafinha and Luis Suarez, so it was 4-1 in the 52nd minute. The game seemed to be settled, so Barca slowed down. But it was far from over, as Unai Emery’s side had the determination and the energy to come back. Jose Antonio Reyes and Kevin Gameiro both scored to make it 4-3 with 20 minutes to go. After both were substituted, their double’s equalized, as Ciro Immobile set up a goal for Yevhen Konoplyanka. So it was 4-4, and Barcelona had to deploy Pedro for the extra time, who duly scored the winner for Barca after another free kick from Messi.
After the UEFA Super Cup, Lionel Messi said that he was lucky with his free kicks. Barcelona won the match 5-4 against Sevilla, and the Argentine genius scored two goals from free-kicks in the first 16 minutes. He has now 80 goals in UEFA club competitions, online mobile news report, the same tally as Cristiano Ronaldo. This is a record of course.
It was the first occasion in his career when Messi managed to score two goals from free-kicks in a single game. He said, “I’ve just been lucky enough to score those and I’m very happy the team won and very grateful to everyone for their support and such a warm welcome.”
The UEFA Super Cup is Barca’s first trophy in the 2015-16 season, but in the fourth in this calendar year. Next they will have a shot at the Spanish Super Cup against Athletic Bilbao. The first match is on Friday. Messi also commented the trophy count. He said, “The key thing is to win and to win as many trophies as possible. Winning today was significant because of what the UEFA Super Cup represents in terms of starting the season on the right foot, so we’re delighted. All trophies are great.”
Unai Emery, the head coach of Sevilla was proud of his players after the UEFA Super Cup final. Sevilla was able to come back from 4-1 and take the game into overtime against Barcelona, arguably the best team in the world. They had to leave Tbilisi with empty hands however, as Pedro Rodriguez scored the winner for Barcelona in the 115th minute.
Emery thinks that Barca’s Lionel Messi had a major role in the victory. The Argentine scored two goals from free-kicks, while Pedro hit the winner after another Messi shot. Emery said, “I want to congratulate Lionel Messi too – his ability to play at the highest level with Barcelona and their consistency is what wins them trophies. There’s a huge amount of teamwork behind it. Everyone has their role so that he can make the difference. Can we stop him next time? We’ll try.”
He added, “I do not know if the result is fair, but with the chances we had, I am left with honey on the lips. If there’s one thing we want to make this team, it is competitive. We want to go for victory whatever the circumstances. If you can reach the Super Cup and Champions League then you have to compete with these teams and see how far you can go. We lost but we were competitive throughout and we are very proud of our team. The worst thing would have been not to have recognised the Sevilla we want to see.”
Premier League sponsors and broadcasters were asked to consider leaving the game. The reason is that many clubs refuse to develop their stadium’s disabled facilities.
Currently only three Premier League stadiums are able to fulfill the regulations. The rest of them are in constant violation of policies regarding wheelchair spaces and other services for disabled spectators.
Lord Holmes is a Conservative peer and former nine-times Paralympic gold medalist. Holmes called Premier League sponsors and clubs to reconsider their relationships with clubs failing to comply with disabled facility regulations. According to a new bill proposal, Premier League stadiums might be closed down if they fail to meet the minimum guidelines.
It was told to Premier League sponsors and broadcasters that they should avoid football stadiums until those don’t provide useful facilities for disabled fans, gambling news report. The most successful Paralympic swimmer of Great Britain, Lord Holmes of Richmond addressed the House of Lords with the problem.
He said, “What we see is nothing short of shambolic. Today, I’m going to write to the sponsors of the Premier League and the broadcast partners to suggest to them that if there isn’t considerable progress – so far I think we can describe it as glacial progress – in this area they should consider their relationship with football and how that fits with their ethical state in the market.”
Only three Premier League stadiums, the properties of Swansea, Bournemouth and Leicester have enough wheelchair spaces, according to online mobile news. A 2014 BBC survey pointed out that eight out of 20 top light football stadiums failed to offer half of the required wheelchair spaces.
The disability commissioner of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) asks Premier League sponsors to think about withdrawing from financial support of clubs. Football clubs should offer enough facilities for disabled people to retain the benefits of sponsorships.
Nine-times Paralympic Games swimming gold medalist, Lord Holmes, is fed up with disputing with the clubs, latest gambling news report. For example, Chelsea representatives stated that their old ground is not suited to offer enough wheelchair spaces considering safety measurements. Chelsea made a promise of fulfilling the wheelchair space quota, when they will build a new stadium.
However, Holmes argues that clubs are ready to arrange their grounds immediately, when new TV facilities are to be installed. Holmes, said “Whether it’s the Fifa debacle, casual sexism or the national scandal of discrimination against disabled fans, the need for football to discover its moral compass has never been greater. Poor access and discrimination against disabled fans has tarnished the reputation of football for too long.”
Before Lord Chris Holmes’ calls were made in the House of Lords, it was already in the newspapers that the nine-times Paralympic gold medallist considers the state of Premier League football stadiums a national scandal, regarding facilities for disabled people.
He thinks that “some clubs are still stuck in the dark ages”, when referring to some incidents, disabled people were involved in when attending football matches in the English top flight. According to a new bill proposal, Premier League stadiums would lose their safety licenses unless meeting the minimum quota of wheelchair spaces and other facilities. This would mean that those stadiums were unable to host football matches.
It was reported by sports scores news earlier this year that three supporters were dispossessed by their crutches and walking sticks when attending a Premier League football match between Manchester United and Arsenal. A police liaison officer commented the incident, saying the stewards lacked common sense completely.
Iker Casillas has been rumoured to be leaving Real Madrid ever since José Mourinho started benching him, but Spain’s and Real Madrid’s captain kept fighting for his place. However, this summer’s transfer window could really be the end of an era.
FC Porto are close to naming Iker Casillas as their new player, according to the reports of several Portuguese and Spanish gambling news. Casillas would be the biggest star of the Portuguese side, the only question is if he is willing to actually sign for them.
Iker Casillas is on the edge of reaching an agreement with FC Porto. He played more than 700 games and broke tons of records with the Royal Club, but right now he is very close to leave his current side. He would be the brightest star and the highest paid player if he joined the Portuguese team.
Online gambling news from Spain report that Real Madrid’s aim for this summer is to strengthen their squad with Manchester United’s David De Gea. The young Spaniard would be Keylor Navas’ competitor for the starting goalkeeper’s position, and there would be no more place left for the current number 1.
Los Blancos will do everything in their power in order to find the most suitable club for their legendary goalkeeper. Casillas and his agent hope for a EUR 15 million exit payment, but it is unlikely that the club would pay him that amount, so still a lot of negotiations are ahead of the two actors.
Meanwhile, Carlo Cutropia, Iker’s representative, has given an interview to Record magazine on Monday, in which he said that the 3-time Champions League winner would be happy to join FC Porto. “Casillas is pretty excited about the opportunity to join Porto. We hope Real Madrid will allow him to move on and give him an easy exit,” he said.
Spanish daily magazines highlight the fact that Iker Casillas signing for FC Porto might cause a huge shock for Portuguese football. That is because FC Porto are usually known for purchasing players for cheap transfer fees and letting them go to larger teams for larger amounts of money.
That is not the case with Iker Casillas, because, he might join the team for free, but he would be the highest paid player in the squad, which could lead to discontent among other players. Online mobile news report that Casillas would earn EUR 3,5 million at Porto, while he makes EUR 7,5 million at Real Madrid.
In addition, it is also unknown whether Casillas wants to play in a league which is far weaker than the Liga BBVA. The Spanish first division is the fourth strongest league economically, while the Portuguese is only the 11th. Only the transfer fee of Cristiano Ronaldo would be enough to cover the budget of several clubs in the Primeira Liga.
However, it is also known for sure that Casillas’ wife would have no problem finding a new job in the Portugal city. Sara Carbonero has become extremely popular in the entire country thanks to the interview which she made with Casillas after the 2010 World Cup, when he kissed her on television, during a live broadcast.
According to the reports of the latest gambling news, Julen Lopetegui has contacted Iker Casillas in order to try to convince him to join his side. His main goal with the call was to find out whether Iker Casillas is even interested in joining the Portuguese side, or not.
The Basque manager, who is now the head boss of the Dragoes, has heard about the rumours that his team wanted to sign Real Madrid’s captain. He did not care about the rumours, he wanted to know the real intentions of the main character of the latest transfer news, so he called the goalkeeper.
Iker Casillas has worked together with Julen Lopetegui in the past and they have quite a good relationship, supposedly. Lopetegui was a member of the Spanish national team’s coaching stuff during Inaki Saez’ reign at the FIFA World Cup 2002 in Japan and South-Korea.
The legendary goalkeeper is still on his vacation for the next few days and will start the pre-season with his current team on 10 July. However, if the Basque manager’s calls were not useless and he did manage to convince Real Madrid’s captain, then he might start packing as soon as possible.
