Real Madrid Vs Liverpool: Match Report

Liverpool’s Champions League hopes suffered a huge blow as Real Madrid roar to a 3-1 victory in the first leg of their quarter-final tie in Spain.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds paid the price for an error-strewn display and now face an uphill battle to turn it around at Anfield next week.

Vinicius Junior (20y 268d) is the second youngest scorer for Real Madrid in a Champions League knockout match, after Raul (18y 253d) in March 1996 against Juventus

Real dominated from the off and deservedly took the lead on 27 minutes when Vinicius Junior brilliantly chested down Toni Kroos’ raking ball over the top and fired a low strike past Alisson.

It was too easy from the visitors’ perspective, but they didn’t learn their lesson and the home team doubled their advantage nine minutes before the break.

Another high through ball from Kroos caused Trent Alexander-Arnold to panic and head straight to Marco Asensio, who coolly flicked it over Alisson and hooked in from close range.

The Merseysiders improved markedly after the break and Mohamed Salah grabbed an away goal on 51 minutes when he converted Diogo Jota’s deflected shot in off the bar.

However, Zinedine Zidane’s men restored their two-goal cushion past the hour when Vinicius Junior somehow squeezed a first-time shot from Luka Modric’s pass beyond Alisson.

Manchester City Vs Borussia Dortmund: Match Report

Manchester City will take a narrow lead to Germany after emerging with a 2-1 win from their hard-fought first-leg encounter against Borussia Dortmund at the Etihad.

The game started brightly for Pep Guardiola’s side, and they took an early lead when Emre Can’s misplaced pass in midfield was ruthlessly punished, with Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez combining to tee up Kevin de Bruyne to slot home.

Dortmund never looked out of the game, and the visitors got the away goal that their performance merited on 84 minutes. Jude Bellingham and Haaland combined cleverly to work Reus into space inside the City box, and the captain made no mistake with his effort, drilling a fine shot across the keeper and into the far bottom corner.

But, just when it looked like the German visitors had secured a draw, up stepped De Bruyne to whip in a brilliant cross towards the back post, and Ilkay Gundogan teed it up for Foden to slot home and give City a narrow advantage in the tie.

Bogoso Explosion: Lands Minister Cautions Perpetrators Of Apiate Explosion Says 'That'll Be Punished'
The Lands Minister, Samuel Abdulai Jinapor, says government will not shield anyone found culpable of negligence leading to the explosion at Apeatse near Bogoso in the Western Region.

According to him, government will ensure it punishes anyone whose negligence may have led to the accident.

“Let’s wait for the outcome of the investigation but if like you say [regulatory failure] turns out that way people have to answer for their commissions and omissions.

“A big if, it’s that straightforward. Because all of us have our respective responsibilities and duties to perform and if at any stage it is found that any one of us hasn’t performed our duties correctly and it occasioned this kind of loss, I believe that the honorable thing to do is for us to pay the ramifications of our action and that I believe will not be difficult to insist on at all,” he said.

The disastrous accident at Apeatse involved a DAF vehicle with registration number WR 2252-18 transporting explosives from the Maxam Company, Tarkwa, to Chirano Gold Mines and a motorcycle.

The Police stated that the rider of the motorcycle from the opposite direction, rode under the vehicle at around 11:25 pmon Thursday.

According to the Police, due to the impact of the crash, the motorcycle caught fire and ignited the explosives on the DAF van. The DAF vehicle, thus burst into flames.

Consequently, 13 people are reported to have died with 57 severely injured while nearby buildings of about 500 houses were razed down.

Commenting on the situation, the Lands Minister assured that government is on course to provide relief to the victims of the explosion as well the displaced.

“The focus of government now are in two folds. The first is to provide some relief and I know that NADMO is been working overnight to be able to send some relief to the displaced people and also care for the injured,” he said.

He added that government is also working hand-in-hand with some security agencies and the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources working through the MIneral Division “to assemble the initial facts so we get understand what caused this (explosion), under what circumstances did this accident occur.”

According to him, when the outcome is made known, broader inquiry will be formed to take it up.

British Prime Minister Drops Covid-19 Restrictions Eventhough Omicron Is At It’s Peak

British Prime Minister Drops Covid-19 Restrictions Eventhough Omicron Is At It's Peak
Face masks will no longer be mandatory in public places and schools in England and Covid-19 passports will be dropped for large events as infections level off in large parts of the country, British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson said Wednesday.

Johnson told lawmakers that the restrictions were being eased because government scientists believed it was likely that the surge of infections prompted by the highly contagious Omicron variant “has now peaked nationally.”

While hospitals in northern England are still under pressure because of high caseloads, Johnson said hospital admissions and patients in intensive care units elsewhere in England were stabilizing or falling.

The government will no longer advise people to work from home and beginning next Thursday mandatory COVID-19 passes will not be required to gain entry to large-scale events.

Compulsory face masks will be scrapped in classrooms starting Thursday as well, and from next week they will not be legally required anywhere in England.

“We will trust the judgment of the British people and no longer criminalise anyone who chooses not to wear one,” Johnson said.

The restrictions were introduced in December to slow the rapid spread of Omicron variant and buy time for the population to get their booster vaccine shot.

Johnson said Wednesday that more than 90 per cent of those over 60 in the U.K. have now had their booster shot. Official figures showed that COVID-19 infections have dropped in most parts of the U.K. for the first time since early December, with 94,432 new positive cases recorded on Tuesday.

The requirement for those infected to self-isolate for five full days remains, but Johnson said that measure will also end in the coming weeks. He said while the self-isolation rule expires on March 24 he will seek to scrap it earlier if the virus data continues to improve.

“As COVID-19 becomes endemic, we will need to replace legal requirements with advice and guidance, urging people with the virus to be careful and considerate of others,” he said.

Britain has the second-worst pandemic death toll in Europe after Russia, with over 153,000 confirmed virus-related deaths.
