Inter Milan clinch 20th Serie A title with win over AC Milan

Inter Milan defeated city rivals AC Milan 2-1 on Monday to clinch the Serie A title, the 20th time the club has lifted the trophy in its history. Goals either side of half-time by Francesco Acerbi and Marcus Thuram set Inter on their way, but Fikayo Tomori pulled one back for AC Milan in the 80th minute and each side had a player sent off shortly before the end of the match as tempers flared. Inter were able to see out the result, though, and when the whistle blew to end the game they sat on an insurmountable 86 points, 17 clear of Milan with five matches to play in the […]

D’Angelo Russell falters late as Lakers drop Game 1

As much as the story of the Los Angeles Lakers’ season has been centered on the team looking to make up for its flameout in the Western Conference finals a year ago to pursuit a championship, there’s also been a personal redemption arc for point guard D’Angelo Russell. However Saturday’s 114-103 Game 1 loss to the Denver Nuggets, where Russell missed 13 of his final 16 shot attempts and scored 13 points, brought to mind some of his past struggles. “D-Lo is a huge reason why we’re here in the first place,” Lakers coach Darvin Ham said. “I’m not going to bail out on my […]

Real Madrid teach Man City a lesson in Champions League epic clash

It’s clear that Manchester City have established themselves within football’s elite since Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan started to transform the club in 2008, but Real Madrid occupy an even higher echelon in the game’s hierarchy, delivering a painful reminder by dethroning the European champions and ending Pep Guardiola’s hopes of a double-treble. Wednesday’s victory should serve as a reminder that Real Madrid should never be underestimated or written off, even versus a team as accomplished as Guardiola’s City. Antonio Rudiger’s coolly converted spot-kick in the penalty shootout at the end of this pulsating quarterfinal tie sealed a 4-3 win on penalties for […]

RB J.K. Dobbins plans to sign 1-year deal with Chargers

Former Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins plans to sign a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Chargers, per his agency, LAA Sports. The move reunites him with Greg Roman, his former offensive coordinator in Baltimore, as well as his former Ravens backfield mate Gus Edwards. Dobbins was the Ravens’ lead back when healthy. He brings a style different from Edwards’ that features elusiveness and the capacity to catch passes out of the backfield. The Ravens didn’t do a ton of throwing to running backs, but in Dobbins’ rookie season with Roman, he caught a career-high 18 passes. The Chargers and quarterback Justin Herbert relied heavily on former […]

Lakers survive Pelicans’ rally, advance to matchup vs. Nuggets

LeBron James posted 23 points, 9 assists and 9 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers secured a playoff berth with a 110-106 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans in the Western Conference play-in tournament on Tuesday night. Zion Williamson had 40 points and 11 rebounds in his NBA postseason debut. But shortly after tying the game at 95 on a driving layup with 3:19 to go, Williamson went to the locker room, throwing a towel to the floor in disgust as he walked into the tunnel with an apparent injury. After the game, Pelicans coach Willie Green stated Williamson had “left leg soreness.” “He’s going to have some […]

No holding back against Barcelona in second leg – PSG boss

Luis Enrique is convinced Paris Saint-Germain can mount a comeback versus Barcelona and reach the Champions League semifinals by taking the game to his former side on Tuesday. Barça triumphed 3-2 in Paris last Wednesday, ending PSG’s 27-game undefeated streak in all competitions, and have home advantage in this week’s quarterfinal second leg at the Olympic Stadium. PSG coach Luis Enrique was in charge of Barça in 2017 when they overturned a 4-0 defeat to the French side by beating them 6-1 in the return game, but he is now aiming to create history on the other side of the divide. “PSG have never […]

PSG favorites to reach semifinal despite Barcelona win

Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez stated Paris Saint-Germain remain favorites to win the teams’ Champions League quarterfinal tie, despite his side winning Wednesday’s first leg 3-2 in the French capital. Raphinha scored twice and substitute Andreas Christensen headed the winner the 77th minute at the Parc des Princes to give Barcelona the edge heading back to Spain for the second leg next week. “PSG are still the favorites,” Xavi said in his postgame news conference. “It will be very difficult to win in Barcelona. “Today we played well because we were united defensively. I’m very proud, everything worked well. We have to improve our concentration in the first […]

Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo helped off court with calf injury

Two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo exited the Milwaukee Bucks’ 104-91 victory over the Boston Celtics in the third quarter Tuesday night due to an injury to his left calf. Antetokounmpo was heading up the court following a made 3-pointer from Celtics guard Derrick White when the Bucks star crumbed to floor without contact while grabbing at his left leg. He stayed on the floor as the Bucks called a timeout, and his teammates helped carry him off the court and toward the locker room. Antetokounmpo was officially ruled out of the game in the fourth quarter with what the team called a left soleus strain. The soleus is a […]

Leverkusen rout Dusseldorf, head to cup final

Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen overwhelmed second division club Fortuna Dusseldorf 4-0 on Wednesday to reach the DFB Pokal final and stretch their undefeated run to 40 matches across all competitions this season. First-half goals from Jeremie Frimpong, Amine Adli and Florian Wirtz put the game to bed as Dusseldorf struggled to cope with the hosts’ pace. Germany international Wirtz added a fourth with a penalty on the hour to give Xabi Alonso’s team another shot at winning a major trophy for the first time in 31 years. Leverkusen will face Kaiserslautern, who ousted third division Saarbrucken 2-0 on Tuesday, in the final on May 25. Looking for the […]

Celtics clinch NBA’s best record with runaway win against OKC

Oklahoma City coach Mark Daigneault likened the Celtics’ performance this season to that of a Ferrari. Boston’s latest triumph over the Thunder earned it yet another luxury with the playoffs fast approaching. Kristaps Porzingis had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 5 blocks, helping the Celtics power past the Thunder 135-100 on Wednesday night to secure the best record in the NBA and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Boston, which won its 11th consecutive home match, improved to 60-16 on the season to notch its 14th 60-win season in franchise history. The only other franchise with at least 10 such seasons is the Lakers, who have 11, […]
