Watch Michigan vs Villanova

Watch Michigan vs Villanova Live Stream:  The Wolverines advanced to the title game with a win over Loyola-Chicago, the tournament’s Cinderella, by a score of 69-57. Moe Wagner was a huge part of Michigan’s success, pouring in a game-high 24 points and 15 rebounds. Michigan locked down on Loyola’s 3-point shooters,

limiting the Ramblers to one make on 10 attempts from deep. The Wolverines’ defense was up to its excellent standard, and that once its offense came back to life, Michigan was able to erase a 10-point deficit and cruise to the win.

Villanova never let Kansas get close in its own Final Four game. The Wildcats have been one of the best teams in college basketball all season, start to finish. While Michigan didn’t look like an outstanding team until the Big Ten Tournament, Villanova has looked the part of a finalist since Day 1. Powered by AP Player of the Year Jalen Brunson, the Wildcats have a powerful offense that will put Michigan’s defense to the test.

Michigan and Villanova will play this Monday, April 2, 2018 in the 2018 National Championship Game. Check out the time, TV channel and the how to watch online below for the Final Four.

The Wolverines advanced to the title game on the strength of a comeback win over Loyola-Chicago. The Ramblers held a 10-point second-half lead over Michigan, but John Beilein’s team was able to kick its offense back into gear to win 69-57. Villanova crushed Kansas, 95-79, to cruise into the championship game.

It’s been one of the most thrilling NCAA Tournaments in recent memory, and we should be treated to one heck of a finale. Villanova and Michigan will meet in a battle of arguably the two best teams in the entire field on Monday, but only one will emerge as the national champion.

Villanova has looked unstoppable at times, but Michigan’s suffocating defense has been able to keep pretty much every opponent under wraps. It will also be a battle of two incredible coaching minds — Michigan’s John Beilein and Villanova’s Jay Wright — so we might have a dandy of a finish on the way.

March Madness finally has a championship matchup Monday night: the Michigan Wolverines will face off against the Villanova Wildcats. The Wildcats easily defeated the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday, setting a Final Four record of 18 3-pointers. They routed Kansas with a final score of 95-79.

On the shoulders of junior forward Moritz Wagner, the Wolverines (33-7) defeated the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers 69-57. Wagner led the charge with 24 points and Charles Matthews followed with 17.

Villanova is playing in their third title game in three years and are currently a 6.5 point favorite to defeat Michigan.

“This is our best offensive team,” Villanova head coach Jay Wright said after Saturday’s win. “We’ve had some good ones. This is definitely our best.”

Michigan Wolverines vs Villanova Wildcats

Michigan Wolverines vs Villanova Wildcats:  After the Michigan Wolverines lost 72-52 in January to Nebraska, or 61-52 against Nebraska in February, or even when they were trailing Houston 63-61 with 3.6 seconds remaining in the second round of the tournament, were you expecting to read a National Championship preview?

The Wolverines will compete for a National Championship Monday night against the Villanova Wildcats in San Antonio.

Michigan silenced America’s sweethearts on Saturday with a 69-57 comeback win over the Loyola Ramblers. U-M trailed by seven points at the half, but rallied and adjusted in the final twenty minutes to advance to its second championship appearance in six years.

The Wolverines are officially the hottest team in the country, but their opponent Monday is the nation’s best squad.

In order to capture their first title since the 1988-89 season, here are three keys to a Wolverines win.

It’s been a wild NCAA men’s tournament, but it appears the cream has risen to the top, as Villanova meets Michigan in the championship game Monday night at the Alamodome in San Antonio. The Wildcats are favored on the betting odds, but where does the smart money go?

March Madness point spread: The Wildcats opened as 6.5-point favorites; the total is at 146, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)

Why Michigan can cover the spread

The Wolverines are back in the NCAA tournament championship game for the second time under coach John Beilein after rallying to beat Loyola-Chicago on Saturday 69-57. Michigan trailed most of that game and by 10 with 14:10 left. But the Wolverines applied the gas and finished the game with a 38-16 spurt, ending the Ramblers’ admirable tournament run and covering a five-point spread.

On the night, Michigan only shot 42.4 percent from the floor, thanks mainly to a cold first half. But it held Loyola to 43.1 percent shooting, outrebounded the Ramblers 36-32 and won the turnover battle 17-11. Michigan has now held each of its last 15 opponents under 50 percent field-goal shooting.

The Wolverines are also now 11-4 straight up and 11-3-1 against the spread this season versus teams that made the Big Dance.

Why Villanova can cover the spread

The Wildcats explode on occasion, and they did it Saturday night in their 95-79 romp over Kansas. Villanova hit eight of its first 12 shots on its way to a 22-4 lead, held a 47-32 advantage at halftime and later pushed that lead to 22 on its way to an easy cover of a five-point spread.

On the night, the Wildcats shot 55.4 percent from the floor and set a new Final Four record by hitting 18 three-pointers in 40 attempts. Six different Villanova players scored at least 10 points, and seven players hit at least one trifecta.

Also, after holding Kansas to 45.2 percent shooting, the Wildcats have now limited each of their last 14 opponents to under 50.0 percent field goal shooting. Villanova is also now 17-3 SU and 15-5 ATS against teams that made the Big Dance this season.

Smart betting pick

This should be a fun one to watch. The Wildcats can throw it in the hole like few others before them, but Michigan can grind with the best. Ultimately, a blowout seems unlikely, and six or seven points might come in handy. Also, the Wolverines are 7-2 ATS as underdogs this season. Smart money here wagers Michigan.

If you thought Michigan’s barrage of three-pointers against Texas A&M in the Sweet Sixteen was impressive, did you catch last night’s Villanova game?

The Wildcats were 18-for-40 beyond the arc against the Kansas Jayhawks Saturday in a 95-79 beating. Their starters each made at least two as they jumped out to a 22-4 lead and never looked back.

Jay Wright’s Villanova squad is reliant on the three-ball, shooting 40.1 percent in 39 games this season. It seems everyone on this roster is capable of knocking down a few long-range shots, which makes this matchup against John Beilein and the Wolverines so intriguing.

It’s college basketball’s best offense versus college basketball’s best defense left in the tournament.

The Wolverines need to limit Villanova’s willingness to take threes. When they take those shots and have open looks, chances are they’ll fall.

It’s encouraging to see Michigan limited Loyola to shooting just 10 percent (1-for-10 on 3P) on Saturday, who shot nearly 40 percent this season.

Beilein will need another defensive showing like that on Monday against a team that features the Naismith Player of the Year in Jalen Brunson.

Whatever you can do, I can do better
Let’s not forget how good of a three-point shooting team the Michigan Wolverines can be.

On March 22, the Wolverines ran the Aggies out of the stadium in a 99-72 win. They shot 58.3 percent from beyond the arc that night (14-for-24), setting an NCAA Tournament record with eight different players hitting a three in one game.

In order to keep up with a Villanova squad that we know will look to hit three-pointers, it’ll be imperative to get guys like Duncan Robinson, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman, Moritz Wagner, and Jordan Poole going.

These are Michigan’s main culprits from beyond-the-arc, and guys who could make a big difference in matching the Wildcats’ style of play.

MAAR and Poole combined for an 0-for-8 day for three, while Wagner and Robinson were 5-13. Poole, however, played an integral role in leading the Michigan comeback with 7 points as Wagner led the way with 24.

The Wolverines will be able to play with the big boys Monday night if we see the same three-point shooting team we saw against the Aggies in the Sweet Sixteen.

Guard’s plan
This was a bit of a rarity on Saturday against Loyola, as both Zavier Simpson and Abdur-Rahkman had off-nights. Abdur-Rahkman was 2-for-11 with 7 points, three of which came from the free-throw line.

Simspon was horrendous as he was held scoreless on 0-for-6 shooting with four turnovers. Against a really offense-oriented team like Villanova, Michigan simply can’t afford a second consecutive game where its two starting guards don’t contribute.

The two have teamed up for a pretty formidable backcourt this season for Beilein.

Simpson averaged 7.3 points per game, with MAAR at 12.6. Both are offensive stalwarts for the Wolverines, playing in all 40 games this season.

It’s all-important that the two of them rebound and find their groove at the center of the Michigan offense on Monday.

The Verdict
This is obviously the best team Michigan has faced this season. You’re not going to see a better team in college basketball that’s able to do what Villanova does night in and night out.

Wright’s Wildcats can do it all. They have a roster rich of scorers and enjoy just as much success on the other side of the ball. According to Ken Pom, Villanova is No. 14 in adjusted defensive efficiency.

Michigan will certainly have their hands full, coming into play as the obvious underdog. A lot will need to go their way — Simpson and MAAR rebounding, Wagner picking up where he left off, and lockdown defense — if they want to win their first title in 29 seasons.

But, anything is possible. Especially as March turns to April, and just 40 minutes decide who will ride off into the college basketball sunset.

NCAA Final – Watch Michigan vs. Villanova Basketball Live Stream

NCAA Final Live Stream:  A national championship game is typically no place for a David-vs.-Goliath story. The last two teams standing are usually among the very best and, roughly, equals.

That first truism remains accurate: Top-seeded Villanova (35-4), the Big East champion, and third-seeded Michigan (33-7), the Big Ten champion, are both among the best teams in college basketball. But equals? Hardly.

While only a fool or a gambler — if there is a difference — should be in the business of making predictions, it seems fair to cast the 2018 Division I men’s title game on Monday night as one with a prohibitive favorite and a fairly significant underdog.

Watch NCAA Final Live Stream

Start with Michigan. They play an immensely appealing style of basketball, both on offense — elegant cuts from the perimeter, bully-ball down low — and defense, where they were one of the very best teams this year. Their coach, John Beilein, has a Hall of Fame résumé, and is coaching in his second title game in six seasons. Also, it’s Michigan. Plainly the Wolverines’ presence is no fluke.

But this team got here by the seat of its pants. In the regular season, the Wolverines’ record against teams that went on to make the N.C.A.A. tournament was 3-4. It’s no wonder that they received the fifth seed in their conference tournament, granting them only a single bye. (As a result, Michigan could become just the second champion to play 41 games, following Connecticut in 2011.)

Michigan Ends Loyola-Chicago’s Long, Wild Ride in the Final Four MARCH 31, 2018

Villanova Rolls Over Kansas to Reach Its Second N.C.A.A. Final in Three Seasons MARCH 31, 2018

Like last year, when the scare of a plane mishap en route to the Big Ten tournament helped inspired a championship run, they turned it on during this year’s conference tournament, winning four games in four days. Then came the N.C.A.A. tournament, and here they are.

But in getting here, Michigan was compelled to defeat teams with the following seeds: No. 14; No. 6; No. 7; No. 9; No. 11. Not exactly a murderers’ row. And while some of its wins were authoritative, others were close, such as the second-round game against Houston won on Jordan Poole’s buzzer-beater, or Saturday night’s gritted-out victory over No. 11 Loyola-Chicago.

This is a fine model for March: survive and advance. “If you win a Big Ten championship in any way, then you can win a national championship,” Beilein said last week. “But after that, it’s about breaks, and anything can happen.”

But now look at the other corner. Villanova is a giant. On Saturday night, its least-heralded major contributor, Eric Paschall, a junior, had 24 points and three rebounds in 29 minutes. The Wildcats’ point guard, Jalen Brunson, is the consensus national player of the year. Mikal Bridges, a forward — though he can play like a guard and has the wingspan of a center — is expected to be taken in the N.B.A. draft in June with a lottery pick. Their big freshman, Omari Spellman, shoots 3-pointers like they were seven-foot hook shots.

The seeds they beat to get here? Nos. 16, 9, 5, 3 and 1. In two of those games, the Wildcats won by 12; in the others, they won by more.

“We don’t pride ourselves on shooting the ball well,” Spellman said after Saturday’s 95-79 humiliation of Kansas in the semifinal. “We pride ourselves on defending and rebounding, and that’s our true measure of success in playing Villanova basketball.”

In terms of Xs and Os, this is a compelling matchup. Villanova accrues a greater share of its baskets from 3-point range than nearly every other college basketball team. Michigan’s opponents score fewer of its points from 3-point range than nearly every other college basketball team, according to KenPom.com.

Going into the Loyola game, Michigan’s coaches spoke of the importance of limiting the Ramblers’ 2-point shooting percentage because they took it almost as a given that they would be successful at stopping them from deep — it is what Michigan does.

So, despite the fact that, as Kansas Coach Bill Self said of Villanova Saturday night: “They’d be hard for anybody to deal with if they shoot the ball like that” — “that” being 18-for-40 from 3-point range — it is likely the Wildcats won’t shoot the ball like that Monday against Michigan.

Then again, in their round-of-eight game versus Texas Tech — like Michigan, a No. 3 seed — the Wildcats made just four of 24 three-point attempts. It did not matter. They outrebounded Texas Tech, a physical Big 12 team, 51-33. They got to the free-throw line, and made 29 of 35 foul shots. They limited the Red Raiders to 33.3 percent from the field. With their dominant hand tied behind their back, they won comfortably, 71-59.

“It’s specifically gratifying to see 33 percent and outrebounding them in the biggest game so far,” Coach Jay Wright said after that game.

They may need a similar game against Michigan.

It may not be gorgeous. But gorgeous may no longer be what defines “Villanova basketball,” a phrase every Wright team learns to repeat robotically. And it may not specifically be “defending and rebounding,” as Spellman said, either. The characteristic that may most strongly correlate with Villanova basketball is winning.

Still, if the Wolverines end Monday night on top, nobody can deny that they faced the toughest of competition. So hail to the victors, whoever they are.

Currently, five points behind the Spurs in the fourth place, the Premier League champion defeated the top four opponents for the first time since November to make up for the huge gap.

On February 10, 1990, the Spurs did not win Stamford Bridge in the Premier League era, and Gary Leinker was the last player to win the league in the league.

Chelsea recently lost to Manchester United and Manchester City, but this is the only team in the season to win the Spurs at home temporarily Marcos Alonso, he defeated Wembley temporary residents in August.

Start time

Chelsea host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge with kick-off scheduled for 4pm on Sunday, April 1.

Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois and Andreas Christensen are doubts for Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Tottenham on Sunday.

Goalkeeper Courtois sustained a hamstring problem before the international break, meaning Willy Caballero could deputise, while centre-back Christensen has been struggling with fatigue.

Defender David Luiz (knee) is definitely out, along with midfielder Ross Barkley who is set to feature for the club’s under-23 side.

Tottenham

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will give Harry Kane every chance to prove his fitness for the Premier League visit to Chelsea.

Kane suffered ankle ligament damage three weeks ago and Pochettino said on Thursday that he cannot rule his striker out of the game at Stamford Bridge.

Harry Winks is definitely missing as he sees a specialist over his own ankle injury.

Ostapenko vs Svitolina Live Stream – 2018 Miami Open

Diretta Miami Open 2018: information spilling video e television, iniziano I quarti di finale maschili e si concludono quelli femminili nel torneo di tennis che si sta disputando in Florida

Svitolina has once again been a beacon of consistency on the WTA Tour in 2018, already up to 18-3 within the first three months of the year. The Ukrainian, who led the tour with five titles last year, already has two titles in the bag- Brisbane and Dubai- while she reached the quarter finals of the Australian Open. Her other losses were against a streaking Petra Kvitova in the second round in Doha, and a rather surprising third-round exit at the hands of Carla Suarez Navarro at Indian Wells.

Svitolina has made a typically strong response to that failure with a battling week in Miami. Confronted with a difficult opening round against Indian Wells champion, Naomi Osaka, who had just taken out eight-time Miami winner, Serena Williams, Svitolina put in a trademark industrious performance, dousing the Japanese’ youngster’s flames in a clinical 6-4 6-2 dispatch.

The 23-year-old lined that up with a coarse 4 6-0 6-1 triumph against the diligent Australian, Daria Gavrilova in the third round, in this way progressing to the fourth round for the third time over the most recent five years. Svitolina was tried again in her next match against Ashleigh Barty, however from 2-5 down in the main set, the Ukrainian reeled off five straight amusements to take the opener 7-5. She at that point rose up out of a three-soften swing up the second set with a 3-2 lead; and went ahead to finish off a 7-5 6-4 triumph that place her into the quarter finals in Miami without precedent for her vocation.

She faces another extreme duel in the following round, as she goes up against feisty Roland Garros champion, Jelena Ostapenko. Both Svitolina and Ostapenko are contending in the Miami Open quarter finals out of the blue.

Certainly between Jelena Ostapenko and Elina Svitolina will be a challenge for the 2018 Miami Open: It deserves a place in the semi-finals and will be the second time between the two young players after the last round of Wimbledon last year. Cross, when the Latvian team made 6 wins – 3 7-6. Ostapenko is not even 21 years old, but has already won Roland Garros and played a quarter-final in the championship; better results than Ukrainians, Ukrainians feel pain in the major (three times in the dorms

Champions League Preview: Tottenham Hotspur vs Juventus

BIG GAME. VERY BIG GAME.

 Tottenham Hotspur vs Juventus Live Stream: have obviously played a lot of games in the Champions League over Max Allegri’s tenure as the club’s manager. Seeing as they’ve made two of the last three grand finals in Europe’s premier club competition, that’s not too difficult to figure out.

A good number of those have ended with Hotspur vs Juventus moving onto the next round — be it in insanely-stressful fashion or just pure 90 minutes of hell in the second leg. (You notice how there’s no “easy” included in this because that just doesn’t go with Juve on the European stage.)

And what do you know? Juve are facing a must-win kind of scenario in the Champions League once again.

How To Watch Tottenham Hotspur vs Juventus Live Stream?

After watching Juventus go from being up 2-0 after all of nine minutes to completely falling apart three weeks in Turin, we now get to see if the six-time defending Italian champions’ European campaign will live to see another round. Entering Wembley Stadium tied 2-2 on aggregate, it’s win-or-go-home time for Max Allegri and Juventus. (Technically speaking, they’re going to be going home regardless of the result, but you know what I mean when I pull out all the fancy sports jargon from time to time.)

We’ve seen the good that watch Tottenham vs Juventuscan live stream do against Spurs. But we’ve also seen the bad that Juventus had happen to them against Spurs. The bad completely outweighs the good. It’s about 80 minutes of bad, 10 minutes of good. Don’t believe me? Well, you can go back and look at when things turned after Juve went up 2-0 and we were already thinking about how good things were.

Instead, now it’s 2-2 and we’re wondering if that’s is the last Champions League game Spurs vs Juventus will be competing in come next September.

Yet, as we sit here stressing about what could happen and/or could go wrong, Gianluigi Buffon had this to say about the second leg against Tottenham at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday:

Buffon being confident is good because Buffon speaks from the heart and sole. So if Gigi is confident that this is not going to be Juventus vs Spurs live stream final Champions League game of the season, then I guess we should be confident, too. In ‘Gigi We Trust,’ right?

Purdue vs Penn State

Purdue vs Penn State Live Stream> Free Watch Online. The Penn State Nittany Lions look for another victory after beating Ohio State in the quarterfinals. The Penn State Nittany Lions are averaging 74.9 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 66.5 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Tony Carr is averaging 19.9 points and 4.8 assists while Lamar Stevens is averaging 15.2 points and 6.3 rebounds. Mike Watkins is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Reaves is grabbing 4.8 rebounds..

The Penn State Nittany Lions are shooting 38.1 percent from beyond the arc and 68.7 percent from the free throw line. The Penn State Nittany Lions are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.5 rebounds per game. The Penn State Nittany Lions have won three of their last four neutral site games.

The quarterfinals of the Big Ten Conference Tournament were fun from noon on, with three of the four games coming down to the wire. One of them was between Penn State and Ohio State, with the Buckeyes looking for revenge from getting swept in the regular season to the Nittany Lions.

Those two wins are thing only things keeping the team in the bubble conversation, although according to our latest Bracketology projections Penn State isn’t even within out First Eight Out. But with many other bubble teams losing this week, they felt that they still had a shot at an at-large bid.

They took a great step towards that in the 69-68 win, thanks to the game-winning dunk by Josh Reaves with a couple of seconds to go. Star guard Tony Carr had a huge game, dropping 25 points in the win. It remains to be seen how big a win this is, but the Nittany Lions get to play another big team to enhance their resume.

They’ll get that in Purdue, who had to survive an upset-minded Rutgers team in the 82-75 nail-biter. The Scarlet Knights had a halftime lead, and after the Boilermakers stormed out to retake the lead, they still kept it close in the final seconds as well. It was the Edwards duo who led Purdue to the big win, with both Carsen and Vincent each having 26 points.

In the regular season, these two teams played just once, with the Boilermakers winning a tight one, 76-73. Carsen Edwards led all scorers with 27 points, with Dakota Mathias chipping in with 18. Carr had 19 to lead Penn State, while Shep Gardner had 17 points as well.

Tony Carr was looking to make a play with Penn State trailing by one point and the clock winding down Friday night at Madison Square Garden.

The Penn State guard could have launched a shot, but instead he found Josh Reaves cutting to the rim for a dunk with 3.1 seconds left to lift No. 7-seed Penn State to a 69-68 win over No. 2-seed Ohio State at the Big Ten tournament.

“I was definitely surprised how open he was,” Carr said. “He was wide open, but I guess that’s what happens when it’s a mismatch and you got to pay some extra attention to the ball.”

As 6-foot-2 Ohio State guard Andrew Dakich defended the 6-foot-5 Carr on the perimeter on the play, Buckeyes guard C.J. Jackson watched closely near the foul line. When Carr made his move, dribbling toward the foul line, Reaves snuck behind Williams.

Carr found his teammate, and Reaves finished a two-handed dunk to give the Nittany Lions a 69-68 lead.

“As soon as I did it, I feel like I left my body for a second,” Reaves said. “I was just standing there, just excited. I heard that they called a timeout, so I took advantage of that moment to try to get the crowd into it.”

Carr blocked Jackson’s 3-point attempt at the buzzer to seal the win and send the Nittany Lions to the conference tournament semifinals.

The Nittany Lions trailed 66-62 with less than three minutes to play, but they stayed within striking distance heading into the final minute. After Shep Garner came away with a steal with 16 seconds left, Carr connected with Reaves for the game-winning play.

“I knew he would make the right decision,” Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said of Carr. “That’s why I didn’t call a timeout. Mostly he’s been shooting it. But I knew he would make the right decision.”

Player of the game
Penn State guard Tony Carr: Carr finished with 25 points, six rebounds and five assists to lead the Nittany Lions to victory Friday night. He banked in a 3-pointer to tie the game 60-60 with 4:44 left, and he dropped off an assist for a dunk by Julian Moore to pull the Nittany Lions within 66-64 with 2:09 left. He then made a game-winning play on his assist to Reaves for the dunk in the final seconds.

Real Madrid vs Getafe

Real Madrid vs Getafe:  Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane claimed his team did not deserve to be beaten by a stoppage-time goal from Espanyol at RCDE Stadium.

A much-changed Real, with Cristiano Ronaldo left out of the squad by Zidane, looked to have done enough to labour to a share of the points.

However, with more than two minutes of added time played, Espanyol broke clear and Gerard Moreno crashed the ball past Keylor Navas to give the Barcelona club a first win over Real Madrid since 2007.

Real Madrid vs Getafe Live Stream

Defeat leaves Real Madrid in third place, 14 points behind leaders Barcelona, who have a game in hand, and two ahead of Valencia having played one match more.

“We made a bright start and had some chances to score, but our second-half display was worse than the opening 45 minutes. We didn’t manage to play at all or offer any sort of threat in the second half, although we didn’t deserve to lose the game,” Zidane said.

Zimmer called Bradford’s knee issues “degenerative,’’ and made it clear he doesn’t know if Bridgewater will ever return to the form he showed in 2015, before his own devastating knee injury of August 2016. As for Keenum, Zimmer didn’t call him a one-year wonder after last season’s breakthrough performance, but he came close to at least posing the question.

“The question is exactly what you’re asking: ‘Is he this guy? All three of our guys have questions. There’s no doubt about it, and it’s our job to do the very best we possibly can to figure out who is the right guy, the right fit.

“It’s important for myself and (Vikings general manager) Rick (Spielman) and the organization that we pick the right guy that is going to help us to
continue to move forward. If we don’t do that, then I’ll probably get fired.”

Real Madrid host Getafe in what will be a fairly meaningless game, even more so considering that Los Blancos will play a season-defining match against PSG next Tuesday. Kroos and Modric are still trying to recover from their injuries and will miss the game, just like Dani Ceballos, who didn’t even make the squad list.

Getafe have been playing well this season and are only a few points behind the Europa League places, so they will try to take advantage of Madrid’s potential lack of focus on this game and earn at least a point.

It will be interesting to see if Los Blancos can bounce back from their 1-0 loss against Espanyol this week. Zidane’s men had been playing well lately but they showed some worrying signs once again. Cristiano Ronaldo appears to be set to return to the starting lineup after getting some rest last Tuesday. Marcelo could also get some minutes.

The buzz within league circles is that while Denver might be the most motivated team in their pursuit of Cousins, the former Washington starter, the Vikings are in the best position to seal a deal with him. Cousins has been clear that he wants to go to a team he can win with immediately, and Minnesota is seen as the obvious favorite on that front, thanks to their combination of a stout defense, bountiful play-makers on offense and the presence of Zimmer, who has led the Vikings to the playoffs in two of the past three seasons. Such a move by Minnesota would also return Cousins to the upper midwest, not all that far from where he played his collegiate ball at Michigan State.

When Canada takes to the ice against Germany with a trip to the men’s hockey gold medal game on the line, the team may be without its starting goaltender.

Ben Scrivens, who started in three of four games for Canada, left Wednesday’s quarterfinal against Finland after colliding with Finnish forward Veli-Matti Savinainen early in the second period. Kevin Poulin replaced Scrivens, who didn’t return to action. Following the game, Sportsnet’s John Shannon disclosed that the “early prognosis on Ben Scrivens does not sound good” while throwing out the notion that the 31-year-old may be out for the remainder of the Olympics.

Canada GM Sean Burke provided his own update on Scrivens following the team’s practice on Thursday.

“Ben’s not a guy that’s out of this tournament for sure,” Burke said via The Canadian Press. “So I think we’ll be back to having three guys available to us I would hope by (Friday).”

If Scrivens isn’t able to suit up against Germany, Canada remains in capable hands. Poulin, a five-year NHL veteran, led Canada to a 4-0 win over Korea earlier in the tournament.

Canada needed only one goal to defeat Finland and advance to the Olympic semifinal. Maxim Noreau, who leads Canada with five points, scored 55 seconds into the third period for the game’s lone tally. After outscoring opponents 12-5 in Pyeongchang, Team Canada appeared dominant in its victories en route to the semifinal. Germany’s hands will be full against Canada, which looks to spoil the Germans’ remarkable run.

 

Germany failed to record a regulation win thus far but that hasn’t stopped the team from setting up an unexpected match-up with the Canadians. Team Germany is on a two-game winning streak after recently defeating Sweden, one of the tournament’s odds-on favourites to win gold. Patrick Reimer, who had yet to record a point, scored what is so far Germany’s most important goal to propel the European nation to the semifinals.

 

Patrick Hager leads Germany in points (2-2-4) while Danny Aus Den Birken serves as the team’s starting goaltender. The 33-year-old netminder started in each of Germany’s four games and will likely be who stands in Canada’s way of defending its Olympic crown.
