Abu Dhabi has been confirmed to host the 2021 FIFA Club World Cup.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino announced the news at the World Governing Body’s board meeting on Wednesday. The 2021 tournament was originally scheduled to take place in Japan in December, but the Japan Football Association withdrew last month due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

No new date for the Abu Dhabi competition has been confirmed, although The National understands that a time slot in February is under consideration.

The United Arab Emirates have hosted the Club World Cup four times already, with Abu Dhabi in 2009, 2010, 2017 and 2018. The 2021 tournament will feature Chelsea and five other continental club champions, as well as Al Jazeera, the current champions of the United Arab Emirates.

On Wednesday, Infantino said: “The board approved a meeting, a world summit to be held in December of this year with the aim of providing a presentation to 211 member countries on the future of soccer, men’s football, women’s football , youth football, December 20.

“It has been decided that the 2021 Club World Cup will be played in early 2022 – the exact dates are yet to be confirmed – but after Japan withdraws due to the pandemic, the host will be the United Arab Emirates, the United Arab Emirates , who have already hosted this event a few times as you know.

Chelsea qualify for the Club World Cup as reigning European champions, alongside African counterparts Al Ahly from Egypt and Oceanic champions Auckland City from New Zealand. Jazeera, who won the Arabian Gulf League last season – the domestic competition has since been renamed the Adnoc Pro League – will take part in the event for the second time.

The Abu Dhabi club, which won the UAE league last season for the third time in their history, reached the Club World Cup semi-final in their only other appearance, in 2017, where he was beaten 2-1 by future winner Real Madrid.

Madrid won the title again the following year to become the all-time record holder, with four. Barcelona and Inter Milan represent the other previous winners in the United Arab Emirates, in 2009 and 2010 respectively.

Aref Hamad Al Awani, Secretary General of the Abu Dhabi Sports Council, said: “We are absolutely delighted to host the FIFA Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi for the fifth time. It goes without saying that the competition brings together both the favorite clubs of fans and players from all over the world.

“It’s great and a huge honor for us. We would like to thank FIFA for the trust and confidence it places in us, on the basis of the past successes of hosting this immensely popular competition.

“We remain committed in our commitment to host world-class sporting events in Abu Dhabi and to make the United Arab Emirates a hub for sporting events.”

Al Awani added, “It is of the utmost importance for us to provide a safe environment for the event, especially after successfully hosting world-class sporting events which have received high praise for the organization and for the best Covid protocols.

“We welcome fans to the Club World Cup with our traditional Arab hospitality, state-of-the-art infrastructure and stadiums, with world-class travel and leisure facilities. “

The 2017 and 2018 competitions were held at Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi and Hazza at Zayed Stadium in Al Ain. Al Ahli, Al Wahda and Al Ain have all represented the UAE at the Club World Cup.

Real Madrid will aim to bounce back on their way to victory when they face Shakhtar Donetsk in a UEFA Champions League Group D meeting this week.

Real Madrid hope to end their three-game winless streak in all competitions by facing Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk in the UEFA Champions League in Kiev on Tuesday night.

Real Madrid, after a rather solid start under Carlo Ancelotti, saw their form falter just before the international break. Indeed, after being held in check by Villarreal in La Liga, Los Blancos suffered a shock defeat to Sheriff Tiraspol in the Champions League before losing to Espanyol in the league.

Not having played after the end of the international break as their clash against Athletic Bilbao was postponed, the Real Madrid stars were given a few more days off. They will want to make the most of it and close the gap to leader Sheriff Tiraspol with a win. However, in their own way there will be a delicate Shakhtar Donetsk squad that will make life difficult despite their shady form in Europe.

Indeed, Roberto De Zerbi’s team are currently rooted at the bottom of Group D in points with Inter Milan, third (1 point), after losing to Sheriff and drawing against the Nerazzurri. However, it should be noted that they are on a six-game unbeaten streak in all competitions and beat Zorya Luhansk 6-1 in their last game in the domestic league.

With both teams in need of a win to increase their chances of reaching the knockout stages, The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at this crucial meeting in Kiev.

Team news and tactics

Shakhtar Donetsk

Shakhtar Donetsk will likely be without just two players for Real Madrid clash with Junior Moraes and Lassina Traore currently recovering from injuries. Apart from him, Roberto De Zerbi has an almost complete squad and will be looking to make the most of their opponents’ recent struggles and inflict even more misery on them.

De Zerbi is likely to return to the 4-1-4-1 formation he used against Inter Milan which helped Shakhtar get a goalless draw. Andriy Pyatov will be the goalkeeper for the home team. He will be protected by a backline including Dodo and Ismaily as full-backs flanking center-back duo Marlon Santos and Mykola Matviyenko.

Taras Stepanenko will provide additional protection at the baseline, registering as the only defensive midfielder. He will benefit from the added support of Maycon, who will line up in a slightly advanced role in the middle of the park, while his partner, Alan Patrick, will carry the creative burden of the midfield.

Pedrinho and Manor Solomon will carry a big threat in large areas and look to cause problems for Real Madrid full-backs while Fernando, who was on goal this weekend against Zorya, is expected to spearhead the attack on the Shakhtar Donetsk.

Probable composition (4-1-4-1): Pyatov; Dodo, Marlon, Matviyenko, Ismaily; Stepanenko; Pedrino, Maycon, Patrick, Salomon; Fernando

real Madrid

Real Madrid have plenty of injury issues for their game against Shakhtar. Manager Carlo Ancelotti will have to do without Dani Carvajal, Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale, Dani Ceballos and Isco for the trip to Ukraine. Marco Asensio ignored his injury issue and was named to the squad for the midweek clash while Ferland Mendy and Eduardo Camavinga are also part of the travel squad.

Real Madrid will line up in their usual 4-3-3 formation, with Thibaut Courtois stepping between the sticks, protected by the pair of central defenders Eder Militao and David Alaba. Nacho is expected to get the go-ahead at right-back in Carvajal’s continued absence while Miguel Gutierrez is expected to feature at left-back ahead of Marcelo and Mendy.

Casemiro is a certain starter at the base of the three-way midfielder for the Spanish giants, from where he will look to break through the hosts’ counterattacks and put the attackers in their path. Luka Modric and Toni Kroos are expected to occupy the two remaining places in midfield, with Federico Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga being options on the bench.

There is no look at Karim Benzema in slot No.9 for Real Madrid. The French hitman will be flanked by Brazilian duo Rodrygo Goes and Vinicius Junior, with Asensio likely to be used as a late replacement.

Probable composition (4-3-3): Courteous; Nacho, Militao, Alaba, Gutiérrez; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Rodrygo, Benzema, Vinicius Jr.

Key statistics

  • For a second consecutive season, Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Madrid will meet in the UEFA Champions League group stage – Shakhtar beat Madrid in both meetings last season (3-2 away, 2-0 home).
  • Real Madrid could lose three consecutive UEFA Champions League games to an opponent for the third time. Previously, he had lost four in a row against Bayern Munich between May 2000 and April 2002 and three in rebound against Juventus between March 2005 and November 2008.
  • Shakhtar Donetsk have had the most shots of any team to score in the UEFA Champions League this season (32).
  • Real Madrid were last beaten by Sheriff Tiraspol at home in the Champions League. Their manager Carlo Ancelotti has not lost consecutive matches in the competition since April 2017.
  • Shakhtar Donetsk’s Manor Solomon are looking to become the first player since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score in three consecutive Champions League games against Real Madrid.

Player to watch

Karim Benzema

The fittest striker in all of Europe today, Benzema has made a stellar start to the season, plundering 10 goals and seven assists in just ten appearances in all competitions for Real Madrid. On top of that, the 33-year-old enters the game with great confidence after helping France win the UEFA Nations League in the international break.

His form, return from goal and the trophy sparked talks about a Ballon d’Or triumph for the veteran striker. Whether or not that materializes remains to be seen, but for Real Madrid to recover from their current slump they will need Benzema to fire at full speed on Tuesday night.

Prediction

Shakhtar Donetsk 1-1 Real Madrid

Shakhtar Donetsk are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions as they also scored a brace against Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League. Thus, they will want to try their luck for the contest on Tuesday, especially since Los Blancos have lost their last two games.

However, the experience and quality that Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, David Alaba, among others, bring to the table, should help Real Madrid save a point from their Ukraine trip. The Hard Tackle predict a draw in Kiev.

UEFA Champions League: Benfica vs Bayern Munich Preview, Odds, Predictions http://soccersuperflyxp.com/uefa-champions-league-benfica-vs-bayern-munich-preview-odds-predictions/ http://soccersuperflyxp.com/uefa-champions-league-benfica-vs-bayern-munich-preview-odds-predictions/#respond Sun, 17 Oct 2021 21:35:04 +0000 http://soccersuperflyxp.com/uefa-champions-league-benfica-vs-bayern-munich-preview-odds-predictions/ Benfica and Bayern Munich will face off on Wednesday evening at La Luz stadium in Lisbon.

Benfica and Bayern Munich will face off on Wednesday evening at La Luz stadium in Lisbon. Both of these teams have had a magnificent run, but lately Bayern have been much better when it comes to winning international trophies. The German champions are hot right now, while the Eagles have shown some inconsistency. After a big win over Barcelona, ​​Benfica had two extremely pale matches in domestic competitions. Wednesday’s clash will be an opportunity to prove that a victory against Barca was not just a lucky day.

Overview

Benfica (+700) won a victory over Troforense in the Portuguese Cup, 1-2, but only after extra time. They had previously lost to Portimorense at home, 0-1, which was one of the biggest surprises in all of Europe.

These two pale performances cast a little shadow over the Eagles’ victory over Barcelona, ​​3-0. The way Benfica blasted Blaugrana was impressive, and at that point we started to think Jorge Jesus’ side had a solid chance of reaching second place and a ticket to the knockout stage.

After recording four clean sheets in five matches, the Benfica defense has loosened its grip, having only one such match in the last five matches. Overall, their offense is solid and has managed to score two or more goals in seven of the Eagles’ last 10 games.

Bayern Munich (-290) was fantastic in the first half against Bayer Leverkusen today. They have scored five goals, including four in the final 15 minutes of the opening streak.

The Bavarians are not slowing down at all and it looks like the loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in Munich was just an unfortunate turn for Nagelsmann and his team. Bayern have yet to allow a single UEFA Champions League goal, beating Barcelona at Camp Nou 0-3 and Dynamo Kiev at home 5-0.

We looked at their last 10 games and found that they have all scored at least three goals and this night ended with over 2.5 goals. On the road, Bayern are just as impressive as when they are playing at home. The last four games have seen them all win and score three or more times.

Latest news

It looks like all Benfica players are in good health and ready to play this game. Haris Seferovic is recovered and ready to roll.

All Bayern players are also in the protocol.

Head to head games

Since 1976, Bayern and Benfica have played 10 times, and the Portuguese side have not recorded any wins. The overall score in these events is seven wins for the Germans with three draws. Bayern beat Benfica in both matches in 2018, it was the last time these teams met.

Prediction

The difference in quality is evident here, and the bookies haven’t put such small odds on the guests for no reason. Bayern will win this game, but we think the profit from their mere victory is far too small, which is why we suggest choosing Bayern wins with a -1.5 goal handicap. The Germans have more than enough firepower to cover the spread and bring us money. Maybe big sum.

Picks: Bayern -1.5 -110

Here is a preview of other UEFA Champions League matches:

FIFA 22 has received community approval since the game’s release on October 1, 2021. Players around the world are excited to try their favorite team’s updated version with the added touches of EA Sports in the department. gameplay and graphics.

The iconic El Clásico is one of the fan favorites among the kick-off mode clashes for players. The Spanish teams of FC Barcelona and Real Madrid CF have a history dating back to 1902. The two teams meet twice a year in the national championship. If the fans are lucky, they will see their favorite teams compete against each other in the final stages of the national cup or European competitions.

FIFA 22, at the height of the game’s predecessors, has managed to keep fans on both sides happy. Both clubs have had a rather unsatisfying season, with Real Madrid adding no silverware to their cabinet and Barcelona only lifting their national cup – the Copa Del Rey. This article compares the Spanish Titans to each other regarding the all-new FIFA 22.


Who is better in FIFA 22: Real Madrid or Barcelona?

real Madrid

AT: 83

MEDIUM: 86

DEF: 83

Real Madrid CF are a historic team, to begin with. Despite the loss of star man Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer of 2018, Real Madrid continue to be a dominant club in Europe. Active participation in the transfer market has helped the club in its rebirth. With the acquisitions of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Ferland Mendy and Eduardo Camavinga in recent transfer windows, Real Madrid have a squad capable of competing with the best European clubs.

Real Madrid play a 4-3-3 roster in FIFA 22 with French striker Karim Benzema (89) as false 9. On either side of Benzema play Eden Hazard (85) and Rodrygo (79). Madrid have an incredible bench to choose from in FIFA 22, with Gareth Bale (82), Vinicius Junior (80), Lucas Vazquez (81), Luka Jovic (79), Marco Asensio (83) and Mariano Diaz (75).

Madrid’s most powerful element is their midfield. A collective of Toni Kroos (88), Casemiro (89) and Luka Modric (87) constitutes the midfield of the team. The experienced trio have led the team to countless victories over the years. Federico Valverde (83), Eduardo Camavinga (78), Isco (82) and Dani Ceballos (77) are the options available on the bench in FIFA 22.

The club have seen a significant change in their defensive line this season. Club captain Sergio Ramos (88) bid farewell to join the French giants of Paris Saint-Germain. Another unexpected start involved Raphael Varane (86) switching to Premier League contender Manchester United.

Real Madrid’s current defense includes Ferlan Mendy (83), David Alaba (84), Eder Militao (82) and Dani Carvajal (85) as starters. The list of substitutes includes Marcelo (80) and “Nacho” Fernandez (81).

Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois (89) keeps the post with Andriy Lunin (74) as a substitute.


FC Barcelona

Tax: 85

MEDIUM: 84

DEF: 80

2020-21 has turned out to be a brutal campaign for FC Barcelona. The unexpected departure of club legend Lionel Messi has had an impact on football around the world. In the 2020-21 season alone, Messi contributed 45.88% of Barcelona’s La Liga goals with 30 goals and 9 assists. His absence from the squad without a suitable replacement is the reality that FC Barcelona had to face.

Barcelona do not have the 93-ranked Messi card in the game, but the team can perform satisfactorily for FIFA 22 players. Barcelona are playing with their standard 4-3-3 formation (Holding) in FIFA 22. Despite the recovery extended player after his arrival at the club, Sergio Aguero (87) leads the attack of FC Barcelona. Aguero is the team’s highest-rated player, a title he shares with Dutch midfielder Frenkie De Jong.

Memphis Depay (85) and Ousmane Dembele (83) support the players on the wings, with Ansu Fati (76), Martin Braithwaite (77) and Luuk De Jong (79) on the bench. De Jong, Depay and Aguero are the club’s most recent transfers.

The FC Barcelona midfielder remains the same as the previous season, with Pedri upping the odds to become one of FIFA 22’s top prodigies with a potential of 91. Sergio Busquets (86) is the starting defender, while Pedri ( 81) and Frenkie De Jong (87) support it. Additional options include Philippe Coutinho (82) and Riqui Puig (76).

The defensive line includes Gerard Pique (84) and Clément Lenglet (82), with Samuel Umtiti (80) and Eric Garcia (77) on the bench as center-back options. Jordi Alba (86) and Sergino Dest (76) are the full-backs, with Sergio Roberto (81) and Oscar Mingueza (75) on the FIFA 22 bench.

Barcelona have one of the highest rated goalkeepers in FIFA 22 – Marc Andre Ter Stegen (90) with Neto (82) on the bench.


Although FC Barcelona have a squad worth competing with, the team fail to find the chemistry in their attack with the new players looking out of position. On the other hand, Real Madrid find stability in their attack with their experienced players like Hazard and Benzema paired with their promising young wingers. The density of the squad with options at each position also puts Real Madrid a step above Barcelona in their FIFA 22 squad.

UFDS also detected suspicious activity in 37 tennis matches, 19 basketball matches, 11 table tennis matches, nine ice hockey matches and six cricket matches. Volleyball, handball and beach volleyball have also been reported as problem areas.

“About 40% of the suspicious activity reported in domestic football competitions comes from leagues at third level and below, including the youth level, as fixers turn their attention to lower level games,” Sportradar said.

Geographically, across all monitored sports, Sportradar’s figures have shifted to Europe with 382 suspicious matches detected so far this year, compared to 115 in Latin America, 74 in the Asia-Pacific region, 43 in Africa, 10 in the Middle East and new in North America. since early January 2021.

Esports has been a target for fixers with more than 70 suspicious matches detected since April of last year across five different game titles, with more than 40 of those suspicious matches identified since January of this year.

The figures for the other sports are: Tennis: 37 games; Basketball: 19; Table tennis: 11; Ice hockey: 9; Cricket: 6, while suspicious activity has also been identified in volleyball, handball and beach volleyball.

A FIFA proposal to possibly hold World Cup tournaments every two years has been met with negative reviews from individuals such as UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin, the European Leagues group, players and some fans around the world. who have all said that a biennial World Cup could over-saturate the market. with international football and have a negative impact on national competitions.

According to Reuters (h / t ESPN), however, FIFA President Gianni Infantino told members of the media in Israel on Tuesday that a biennial World Cup would be no different from the large-scale annual sporting events worshiped by spectators and fans watching television.

“Definitely believe in holding more prestigious events, whether it’s the World Cup or whatever … It’s precisely because it’s such a magical tournament that maybe that’s why it should happen more often.” , explained Infantino. “The prestige of an event depends on its quality, not how often. You have the Super Bowl every year, Wimbledon or the Champions League every year, and everyone is excited and waiting for it.”

Former Arsenal manager and current FIFA world football development chief Arsene Wenger has repeatedly praised the biennial World Cup plans, and FIFA said last month that an investigation showed that ‘a majority of respondents approved of watching a World Cup every one, two or three years but preferred both. -year option of these three.

“There are considerable differences between the so-called traditional markets and the developing football markets; and the younger generations in all regions are more open and more interested in change than the older generations,” FIFA told the era.

Chris Woakes aims to give England ‘experience’ and ‘cool head’ in T20 World Cup http://soccersuperflyxp.com/chris-woakes-aims-to-give-england-experience-and-cool-head-in-t20-world-cup/ http://soccersuperflyxp.com/chris-woakes-aims-to-give-england-experience-and-cool-head-in-t20-world-cup/#respond Mon, 11 Oct 2021 16:01:32 +0000 http://soccersuperflyxp.com/chris-woakes-aims-to-give-england-experience-and-cool-head-in-t20-world-cup/ Among the many statistical quirks of Chris Woakes’ career – which includes his home record compared to his overseas work – one particular quirk are his 10 Twenty20 international caps.

Among the many statistical quirks of Chris Woakes’ career – which includes his home record compared to his overseas work – one particular quirk are his 10 Twenty20 international caps.

He made his T20 debut in Adelaide on January 12, 2011, against Australia. Nine and 10 came this summer against Sri Lanka, after what had been a gap of almost six years since number eight, against Pakistan in November 2015.

This is a peculiarity that is not unique to Woakes among his English teammates. Until this year, the format was primarily a means of selecting up-and-coming English talent.

Of course, domestic and franchise competitions have helped keep pace with the 32-year-old and other established internationals. Woakes – a career 119 T20 veteran – has represented the Kolkata Knight Riders more times (13) than his country.

Two weeks from now, however, he will be a vital part of England’s quest to win the T20 World Cup. Success would also amount to seven more caps and, moreover, a second limited winners medal in an outstanding career that ten years ago seemed more likely to thrive with white than red.

“In the current climate, the way the game has evolved across three formats, there is no way I would have debuted at T20 in 2011 if the game was as it is now,” Woakes explains. “At the time, I played primarily as a red ball cricketer and then I made my debut in T20.

“The game has changed, there are a lot more players playing certain formats and engaging in them. Obviously I would have liked to play a bit more, but at the same time not focusing too much on the T20, I think it helped my other formats, especially my ODI game. Tests too. I would have bit your hand for the career I had 10 years ago, so I can’t be too hard on myself.

No doubt we have seen the end of the blood of Test cricketers via the T20s. Woakes probably counts as one of the few successes of this now archaic strategy, although he believed that the attraction of the two longer formats would ultimately reduce his involvement in the shorter in terms of global competition.

“I would be lying if I said I thought I would have another chance,” he admits. “I was hoping to have another chance, and I didn’t think I would opt out of this format. But I thought it might have happened to come back to me. I am delighted to be sitting here and having the opportunity to play another World Cup.

Indeed, the time spent without playing international T20s was spent playing both internationals and national T20s. Perhaps it’s more on the former that Woakes will come up with the XI in consistent terms. The experience along the way, from the success of the 2019 World Cup and its 16 wickets to the scrutiny of its 39 test selections, is invaluable to those around him. In such a volatile game, he will be a measured presence.

“T20 as a top bowler and death can be a whirlwind, you have to keep a cool head and stay in the moment a little bit. Having the experience that I have had certainly helps. I hope I can build on that experience, use it to help me perform at this World Cup. I believe there is not a huge difference between bowling with the new T20 ball and ODI cricket, players are coming [in] a little more difficult, but it’s a great opportunity to take wickets, which is one of my strengths in ODI.

These skills were honed on Monday as England enjoyed their first outdoor training of the winter at Oman Cricket Academy in Al Amerat. After serving a harsh quarantine when they arrived in the country last Tuesday (October 5), preparations will gradually intensify towards their opener on October 23 in Dubai – a repeat of the 2016 final against the West Indies.

The only thing they’ll miss is match training. The cancellation of the Pakistan tour means they only have two warm-up matches in the next 12 days. It is hoped that intense training sessions will compensate for a lack of “real” competition.

Some players will be more affected than others. A handful have seen action in the Indian Premier League, which is currently nearing completion in the UAE. Captain Eoin Morgan is one of them, although his form for KKR has been dismal.

Woakes was going to be one of those in the UAE until he decided not to return to the Delhi capitals for the 2021 season finale. Instead, he stayed in the Kingdom. United and helped Warwickshire win the County Championship.

Part of that decision was governed by the Ashes later this year, which at the time was still pending. Confirmation of the series and indeed a team added some clarity, although the critical terms have yet to be decided. Woakes was seen as a dubious traveler, as one of England’s senior players with a young family.

However, he does feel some satisfaction that there is both clarity and a streak of renown on the horizon. After making four Tests on the 2017/18 tour, which Australia comfortably won 4-0, he hopes to right some wrongs, as tough as that may be.

“This is good news for Australia and the Ashes tour. There was never too much doubt that everyone was eager to go and play, but obviously things are going on in the world right now and people want guarantees on what life will be like once. we’ll be there.

“I’m excited. Obviously I shot there in 2017-18 and it didn’t go as well as we would have liked as a team, so I really hope we can do something special this time around.

The Skipper Provincial Cup, Vanua and women’s rugby competitions will not continue this year.

It was after the Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) announced that it would not resume domestic competition for 2021.

“After extensive consultation with all stakeholders and after discussions with unions and taking into account that World Rugby and Fiji Rugby return-to-play protocols require a minimum of 5-7 weeks of training per contact prior to any competition that will take us to the beginning of December, so it’s impossible to start and end any form of national competition safely this year, ”confirmed GM John O’Connor.

“Even though we received approval and certification for our ‘Safe Return to Training and Play’ last Friday, after extensive consultation and careful consideration, we have decided to cancel all of our domestic competitions for 2021. “

Due to the significant delays caused by the postponement of the COVID-19 competition for five months, a workable timeline for lining up an appropriate play schedule seemed unattainable. O’Connor stressed that the well-being of the players is also paramount.

“We have taken the welfare and safety of the players seriously into account, especially since there has been no training in the past six months and the importance of ensuring that strict guidelines are adhered to. We plan to launch our competition early next year in March and have urged unions to focus on their off-season training and prepare accordingly. “

Fiji Rugby continues to urge all of our affiliated unions to update the immunization status of everyone involved in their respective unions and to ensure that there is a process to support the keeping of this immunization data and also have a process to ensure full compliance with all COVID-19 restrictions before starting any competition.

Plans are in place to host the Super 7s Series final tournament in November with details to be confirmed.
