Ter Stegen does not reach the derby

first_imgone As reported by the program Què T’hi Jugues of SER Catalunya, Marc-André Ter Stegen will not play this Saturday against Espanyol (9:00 p.m.) at the RCD Stadium in Cornellà. The German did not jump to train this Thursday with his teammates and will continue with his conservative treatment to try to recover from the tendinopathy he suffers in his right knee. The images showed that the club late Thursday show a workout without Ter Stegen and another with Neto and Iñaki Peña. The doctors and physios of Barça will try to recover Ter Stegen for the Spanish Super Cup which will be played from January 8 in Arabia (Barça plays on 9 against Atlético de Madrid) and, in the end, this work could be part of a plan established by Barça. Ter Stegen hasn’t played since the last league day, which was on December 21 against Alavés. If you don’t reappear until January 9, Ter Stegen would have been almost three weeks standing to deal with his problems. Another issue would be that the injury had appeared on the 29th, when the club joined training. The urgent call to Net it would allow to lean towards the second option.Net will make his debut in League.

Still no PSL joy for Gayle

first_imgSHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (CMC): Chris Gayle’s run of low scores in the Pakistan Super League continued on Thursday as his Karachi Kings suffered a seven-run defeat to Sunil Narine’s Lahore Qalanders. Chasing a challenging 180 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Kings came up short at 172 for eight, with the veteran left-hander mustering just five, while his West Indies teammate Kieron Pollard also failed, scoring just eight as King suffered a major batting meltdown. Gayle now has 17 runs from three innings in the tournament. Only Sri Lankan star Kumar Sangakkara, with 65 off 45 balls, and Pakistani Shoaib Malik, with a 30-ball 39, showed any resistance in a 101-run, third-wicket stand, which pulled Kings around from 21 for two in the fourth over. Once the partnership was broken, however, Kings slumped again, with six wickets tumbling for just 46 runs down the stretch. Off-spinner Narine, who opened the bowling, finished with two for 32 from his four overs. He also accounted for Pollard, deceived and bowled between bat and pad in the 17th over. Earlier, Qalanders rattled up 179 for eight off their 20 overs after being sent in, with Fakhar Zaman top-scoring with 56. Narine smashed a four and a six in scoring 13 from six deliveries as he opened his shoulders late on.last_img read more
