A German fourth-tier club have sold more than 100,000 tickets for a match against an \"invisible opponent\" - despite averaging crowds of 3,000. Lokomotive Leipzig have been selling e-tickets for one euro (88p) each for the event, scheduled for 8 May. They are planning it to help cope with financial pressures resulting from the suspension of football in the country because of the coronavirus pandemic.
And it pays little thought to the practicalities of medical and broadcast personnel, particularly as, at the same time, the collective word from clubs and leagues is that health comes first. Given the likelihood is that current restrictions on movement will eventually be removed gradually and with extreme caution, it is almost certain that the first domestic matches on resumption will be played behind closed doors.
Europa League Group Stage matchday 6. This is the last game in this group and whoever wins have the chance to qualify for the final round. Arsenal Changed coach, now Ljungberg is taking care, after ups and down they won their last league game away against West Ham United 3-1, goals from Martinelli 60th Minutes, Pepe 66th Minutes and Aubameyang 69th Minutes. After they lost last Europa League game against Frankfurt 1-2, I don't think they will joke with this game.
The fans have the right to do what they want but I ask them to support everyone. Real had fallen behind to a Willian Jose strike in the second minute but Karim Benzema and Federico Valverde struck either side of halftime to put the hosts in front, although the mood in the stands changed when Bale came off the bench.
Q&A: What does extension mean for English football?Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live Breakfast, the 45-year-old Sky Sports pundit added: \"I said no on this about three or four weeks ago because I felt that it takes away from the essence of football. I also felt that EFL (English Football League) clubs and non-league clubs would suffer too much from the revenue loss and it would put them under. At the moment, the behind closed doors idea has got to come only after the health priority.
We've not got the credit we deserve at times. To take this season, and the teams above us, like Brentford and West Brom who are fantastic teams, to the wire is fantastic. Trio in the play-off hunt The race for the final play-off places is also quite intriguing. Two of West Brom, Fulham and Brentford are guaranteed to be in the play-offs, but the other two spots are still up for grabs between Nottingham Forest, Cardiff City and Swansea City.
The excellent Ingolstadt 04 will win this match when he is in a better form than Christian Neidhart's army. Specifically, Ingolstadt 04 has won the last 3/5 matches, won the last 3/5 matches away, won the last 3/5 matches and won the last 6/10 matches away. And coach and coach Christian Neidhart lost the last 5/8 matches at home, last 4/8 matches, didn't win the last 4/8 matches, didn't win the last 6/8 matches at home. Sv Meppen has not won 6/10 recent matches, winning the last 3/5 matches. At home, coach Christian Neidhart's army did not win the last 6/10 matches, not win the last 3/5 matches. Ingolstadt 04 did not win 6/10 recent matches, won the last 3/5 matches. Away of coach Jeff Saibene's team won 5 of the last 10 matches, winning the last 3/5 matches.
Wolfsburg is very close to the spot which leads to the Europa league next season and I think that spot is their main goal from this season and today I expect from them to be able to beat Augsburg on the road because they are simply better squad and they already failed to beat them at home in first part of the season when the game ended with 0-0,Augsburg on the other side is very close to the relegation zone and they will have a lot of problems staying in this league so I don't expect a lot from them today
Den Haag are without a win in their last seven games in all competitions and Groningen have failed to win any of their last three league games, making a draw the most likely result between the pair on Saturday. Den Haag have only won once at home this season and Groningen haven’t faired much better on the road with just two wins to their name.
Sampdoria showed promise last game. It is true that Cagliari ended up winning the game but Sampdoria did very well and in my opinion their full roster is better and I think they will not lose again tonight for Coppa Italia. Cagliari are the good surprise of the year as they are challenging the best and taking a spot at the top over some of the club's with the biggest history in world football. They do not have any star player but they do play really well together. Sampdoria do well last year but they are struggling this year. The cup may be an escape route
Bari have recently had 4 wins and 1 draw. They have scored 14 goals and conceded 4 goals in the last 5 league matches. At home they managed to win 3 and draw 2 of their last 5 league games scoring 12 goal and conceding 6.
Kevin de Bruyne's brilliant second-half free-kick cancelled out Christian Pulisic's breakaway goal for the hosts but Liverpool's title was confirmed with 12 minutes left when Fernandinho was sent off for handball on the line and Willian dispatched the resulting penalty. While City are still in the Champions League and continue their defence of the FA Cup at Newcastle on Sunday, their next act in the league will be as part of Liverpool's coronation when they welcome the Reds to Etihad Stadium next Thursday.
Instead, the nightmare visited the normally reliable Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski who, after a poor effort to allow Georginio Wijnaldum's early header to creep in, let Mohamed Salah's tame effort squirm through his legs for the equaliser to make it 2-2. Moyes turned away, perhaps sensing the fates were against him in front of the Kop again, and so it proved as Sadio Mane scored the late winner.
Dragon de Yaounde will host Stade Renard for this fixture of the league. In my opinion, the visitors have a real chance to get a positive result. I expect, they will try to pick up the victory on the opposite stadium. True, I believe, this is a very unpredictable league. In any case, Stade Renard have a chance to win. Also, we have Dragon de Yaounde who's is not very good team in recent times. Hosts have only 1 victory in their last 5 matches. In any case, they are not convincing team and for me they could lose. My pick - Stade Renard to win.
Manchester City will be outright favorites in this game; they face a Sheffield Wednesday side struggling in the Championship and struggling at home too. In their last five home matches, Sheffield have conceded three or more goals in three. They have not won in seven of their last eight matches and facing a City side on six wins in seven away matches, and with a great run in the FA Cup doesn’t look so promising for the Championship side. City have scored at least two goals in three of their last four matches and we are backing them for a 2-0 win here.
Juventus remained unbeaten at home in Serie A in 2019 (W13 D4), one of only three sides in the big-5 European Leagues to do so along with Liverpool and Barcelona. On top of that, the champions are unbeaten in their last 29 Serie A home matches (W24 D5) and could avoid defeat in 30 in a row for the first time since September 2017. We see them adding to Cagliari’s run of consecutive defeats. The visitors lost both 2-1, while Juve have already seen that scoreline land six times. We see a repeat of that on Monday.
In 2012, he was given a 14-month-driving ban after pleading guilty to drink-driving following a motorway crash. I was on my own, which is not the best place when you're down. Isolating yourself, that's where the illness wants you,\" Merson said. On Monday, I'll have been a year sober. I keep my life to one day at a time.

The two face off on Monday morning in Florida, both coming from wins in their final group matches. Sporting KC bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Minnesota United in their opening game, to beat Colorado Rapids and Real Salt Lake in the last two group games, and will without doubt, be in high spirits for this second round clash.
The very fact that you are in professional sport, you need to be very resilient. You need to be able to bounce back because you'll get more setbacks than you will good times, and I would like to think that's how my members are. So it remains in process and we shall just have to wait and see, and look at it on a day by day basis and see if it's achievable. But if we don't try, then it's never going to be achievable.
The hosts head to this game on 36 points and in 15th place while City are second with 69 points. For Brighton, survival is still not assured and after their loss to Liverpool in their last game, they will need a positive result here. Brighton are nine points above the drop zone but with the matches lined up for them, they can easily lose the gap.
