Man Utd vs Barcelona: How United can hurt Barca at Old Trafford

At their brilliant best, Barcelona look unstoppable, yet the Catalan club have exited at the quarter-final stage in each of the last three editions of the Champions League and Manchester United will believe they can be beaten.

In Europe, the Catalans have gone out to Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Roma over the last three seasons, proving they are vulnerable in knockout ties over two legs.

In La Liga, meanwhile, Leganes and Betis have both defeated Ernesto Valverde’s side this season, while Villarreal came within seconds of a win in the teams’ thrilling 4-4 draw last week.

So what can United learn from those matches to give themselves the greatest chance of success at Old Trafford tonight?

Pace and physicality
Barcelona rarely look entirely comfortable in a physical battle and United will need to play with intensity to unsettle their opponents tonight, albeit without losing their cool and if possible, without giving away free-kicks in dangerous positions.

Pace on the counter-attack will also be a vital weapon for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and Valverde admitted on Tuesday that he does not want to leave space for United to attack in tonight’s game.

Barca’s high defensive line means they do give rivals a chance to break at speed, though, and quick transitions could be key to hopes for the Premier League side tonight.

Expose Busquets

Sergio Busquets is one of the world’s finest midfielders and is still a wonderful player with the ball at his feet, but he has looked vulnerable at times this season and is a player United will look to target in tonight’s game.

Against Villarreal last week, Busquets gave the ball away on a number of occasions and looked uncomfortable when he was forced to chase back on fast breaks, thumping the ground in frustration at one point.

His lack of pace and mobility make him a potential weak link if United press effectively in midfield.

Isolate Messi

That is easier said that done, of course, but the key for United will be to cut the supply line to the Argentine from deep positions, and possibly even man marking the Barca captain.

Keeping Messi off the ball for as much as possible will be essential to their hopes of success.

Make Ter Stegen uncomfortable

Villarreal pressed the 26-year-old in last week’s match and cut off his passing options, forcing the goalkeeper to go long and resulting in a loss of possession at times.

Earlier this season, meanwhile, Sevilla unsettled the German with high balls into the area. Both of those tactics could be effective for Solskjaer’s side tonight.

Save some energy until the end

Barcelona’s relentless attacking football can wear teams down and rivals often fold in the latter stages of games when they are unable to maintain their intensity, allowing Messi, Luis Suarez et all to take advantage.

That was evident as Barca beat Atletico with two late goals on Saturday and also in the last 16 of the Champions League as the Catalans hit three in the final 12 minutes to seal a 5-1 win over Lyon.

Overall fitness will therefore be important for United tonight and their recent break could help in that respect, while Solskaer’s substitutions will also have a vital part to play in the latter stages.

The result means the tie is finely balanced, but the Italian champions look to have the edge courtesy of their away goal and the fact they have home advantage in the return leg.

Match Odds (via Oddschecker): Juventus 8-13, Ajax 9-2, draw 11-4

Match Preview

Juventus go into the game after missing the chance to clinch an eighth successive Serie A title on Saturday.

Massimiliano Allegri’s men were beaten 2-1 by SPAL, although the Juve boss did rest several key players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, for the match.

Ajax will therefore face a fresh Ronaldo, and Allegri has also hinted that Moise Keane and Paulo Dybala could feature on Tuesday:

The Serie A side have also had some good news on the injury front ahead of the match.

Emre Can, Rodrigo Bentancur, Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have all recovered from injury, while the club’s medical staff are “optimistic” Giorgio Chiellini and Douglas Costa will be fit, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

Allegri has warned his team not to drop their guard against the Dutch side, per JTV (h/t Football Italia):

“Ajax always play the same way, it doesn’t matter if they are at home or on their travels,” he said. “That means we must play well and have great respect for them. It’s a difficult match against a very impressive team.”

Ajax warmed up for Tuesday’s clash with a 6-2 Eredivisie thrashing of Excelsior. However, the win came at a cost after key midfielder Frenkie de Jong limped off with a hamstring injury.

Ten Hag told reporters after the match the substitution was a precautionary measure.

“He felt something wrong with his hamstring and so we took him off as a precaution,” the Ajax boss said. “We were already 1-0 up so there was no point taking any risks.”

Opta noted just how influential De Jong was in the first leg:

Ajax have plenty of attacking talent in their ranks, and they will need to score if they are to have any chance of progressing.

David Neres was on target in the first leg, while Dusan Tadic is enjoying a fine campaign with the Dutch giants:

The visitors also have 19-year-old Matthjis de Ligt in defence. The teenager is widely regarded as one of Europe’s most exciting talents and has been linked with a move to Barcelona, per Sport:

This should make for an intriguing second leg as both teams look to set up a semi-final against either Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester City.

Juventus will be favourites to go through, but Ajax have shown this season they have the talent, mentality and temperament to compete with the best and will be aiming to pull off another shock.

Game of Thrones season 8

Game of Thrones season 8: When it starts, schedule and how to stream HBO without cable.

Winter is coming this spring. The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones will be upon us on Sunday, April 14.

Click here To Watch Live Stream

In order to watch the comings and goings in Westeros as Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and the Starks line up against the Lannisters and the Army of the Dead (and their recently acquired dragon) — the final Battle of Winterfell is rumored to be insanely lengthy and excruciatingly bloody — you will need a way to watch HBO. Thankfully, there are plenty of easy ways to subscribe, even if you don’t have cable, starting with HBO Now and HBO Go.

Game of Thrones season 8 schedule

This last season will comprise six, supersize, hour-plus-length episodes. It will all be over — sniff — by mid-May.

Plan to clear out your Sunday evenings at 9 p.m. (8 p.m. Central) in the US, starting around tax day. Here’s the schedule:

  • Episode 1: April 14
  • Episode 2: April 21
  • Episode 3: April 28
  • Episode 4: May 5
  • Episode 5: May 12
  • Episode 6: May 19

Disclosure: CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products featured on this page.

HBO’s main two streaming options

HBO Go

If you’re already a subscriber to HBO as part of a cable or satellite TV package, you get HBO Go for free. It lets you stream Game of Thrones along with the rest of HBO’s shows on supported phones, tablets, connected TVs and gaming consoles. Not only can you watch all seven past seasons of GoT with HBO Go, but you can live stream the new episodes as they air on HBO.

HBO Now

As opposed to the free streaming add-on mentioned above, HBO Now is a standalone subscription to HBO — no cable or satellite TV subscription required.

It costs $15 a month and lets you watch HBO via the HBO Now app or in a browser at HBONow.com. The HBO Now app is available on a number of devices, including mobile devices, smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku. As with HBO Go, you can steam the new episodes live on Sunday nights, the same time that they air on HBO.

Add HBO to a streaming service

You can add HBO to four of the TV streaming services below for an additional monthly charge. If you’re a GoT fan and also a subscriber to Sling TV or YouTube TV, then I’m sorry to report that you are out of luck; neither service offers HBO. Here are four that do:

Hulu

HBO is a $15-a-month add-on to any Hulu plan, which start at $5.99 a month.

Amazon Prime Video

Prime members can add HBO for $15 a month. A Prime membership costs $119 a year.

PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue’s priciest $80-a-month Ultra plan includes HBO (and Showtime), but you can also purchase HBO as a standalone channel for $15 a month — no other plan is needed.

DirecTV Now

DirecTV Now now includes HBO, but upped its price from $40 to $50 a month. It also dropped a number of other channels in the process, making it a bad streaming deal, even for GoT fans.

Game of Thrones in the UK, Australia and elsewhere

According to an HBO representative, Game of Thrones airs in all but four countries around the world — but not necessarily on HBO itself. In the UK, for example, HBO shows are on Sky Atlantic and Sky’s online services Sky Go and Now TV. In Australia, Game of Thrones airs on TV and online on Foxtel. In both countries the show airs at the same time as in the US (i.e. early Monday), and is repeated on Monday night.

And for the record, HBO restricts the use of VPNs used to stream any of the above services from outside the US.

The Best Reactions from People Who Watched the Game of Thrones Season 8 Premiere in NYC.

WARNING: Possible spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 1 ahead.

  • Those who watched the first episode of Game of Thrones Season 8 at the premiere on Wednesday have shared their reactions on social media.
  • Sharing footage or spoilers was prohibited, but viewers still expressed their excitement on Twitter and Instagram.
  • Cast members also teased the episode, calling it “so goddamn good” and “fantastic.”

The world premiere of Game of Thrones’s eighth season took place on Wednesday night, giving a limited audience in New York City a first look at the show’s final chapter. Recording footage and tweeting spoilers were strictly prohibited, but viewers still couldn’t help sharing their excitement about Season 8, Episode 1 online. Luckily, most viewers have kept mum on exact plot points, but their reactions to episode do give us a hint of what’s to come. Here’s what they’re saying:

The episode “contains sooo much” in one hour.

Jason Momoa, who played Clarke’s onscreen husband, Drogo, in the first season, also shared his thoughts. “HOLY SHIT I saw Game of Thrones Mind blown. The greatest ever,” he said.

Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane) said, “The first episode was FANTASTIC!”

A more revealing review in The Telegraph teases that the episode is “heavy focused around reunions” and contains a “noticeably lighter, more humorous tone.” (Surprising for a show that’s involved so much death.) The piece is a bit spoiler-y, but if you dare to know more about what happens, read the full review here.

Fans can finally watch Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 1 when it airs next Sunday, April 14, on HBO.

If the Sharks are going to take a 2-1 series lead over the Vegas Golden Knights in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, they’ll have to win in a building where they haven’t had much success in Game 3.

In the regular season and playoffs, the Sharks are just 2-4-1 at T-Mobile Arena. San Jose won its last game in Las Vegas back on Jan. 10, but has been outscored 31-16 in seven games in Sin City.

With the series now tied at one game apiece, the Sharks will need to win (at least) once on the road in order to advance to the second round. Taking back home-ice advantage in Game 3 wouldn’t be a bad place to start.

Game One Recap, via the Associated Press:

Pat Maroon set up the winning goal for the St. Louis Blues, and his thoughts immediately turned to his late grandfather.

Tyler Bozak scored with 2:05 left in the third period off Maroon’s assist to give the Blues a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night in Game 1 of their Western Conference opening-round playoff series.

“He was watching above,” Maroon said of his grandfather, who died Tuesday at 95 years old. “So, obviously, that was for him.”

Maroon sent a backhand pass from behind the net out to Bozak in the slot, and Bozak’s quick shot went by Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck for the go-ahead goal.

“It’s been emotional, tough days for me,” said Maroon, who posted a tribute to his grandfather on Twitter. “But being with the guys and having them by my side has been really good.”

David Perron also scored for St. Louis early in the third, and Jordan Binnington made 24 saves.

“I had a lot of chances tonight, so I knew the puck was kind of following me around a bit,” Bozak said. “It’s always fun when that happens, so after the few I missed it was definitely nice to get one in there.”
Patrik Laine scored late in the first period and Hellebuyck stopped 24 shots for the Jets, who host Game 2 on Friday.

“Real tight, and that’s what we expect,” Jets captain Blake Wheeler said of the game. “We expect it’s going to go seven, and seven real close games. It didn’t go our way tonight.”

The goalies played a big role in keeping the game tight, even though Binnington took an early tumble to the ice.

Winnipeg’s Mark Scheifele was sent to the penalty box 34 seconds into the first period for interference. As he was skating to the back of the St. Louis net, he banged into Binnington, who was behind the net and returning to his crease. Blues forward Brayden Schenn shoved Scheifele hard in retaliation, but only drew boos from fans and not a penalty.

“It’s playoff hockey,” Binnington said. “I can take a hit.”

Laine sent a blast from the high slot past Binnington at 13:38. The Finnish forward only had one goal in his last 19 games of the regular season.

“We’ve had a couple of those where they score the winning goal in the last two minutes,” Laine said. “So it’s always tough, but that’s how it goes sometimes. We still had two minutes to tie the game, but couldn’t do it. We’ve got to focus on the next game.”

Portland Trail Blazers vs Oklahoma City Thunder

NBA Playoffs 2019: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Game 2 live stream: Watch online

Game 1 between the Thunder and Trail Blazers came down to the wire. A crucial Game 2 should be just as exciting. Here’s how to watch.

Click here To Watch Live Stream

Just about everything broke right for the Trail Blazers in Game 1. Paul George’s shoulder looked to be bothering him and he had one of the worst shooting performances of his playoff career. At the other end, Damian Lillard was drilling 3s from the logo. Enes Kanter had a monster double-double and played passably and engaged enough on defense that he didn’t just give it back at the other end. And still, they needed every possession to eke out a five-point win.

These two teams are very evenly matched and Game 2 could very well go right down to the wire again. The Thunder’s shooters struggled in Game 1 but they don’t have a ton of outside shooting to begin with and they simply need George to be better. That may not be possible if his injury is continuing to cause pain but it’s really the only viable path to an upset for Oklahoma City. The Thunder will also continue to test Kanter in the pick-and-roll and see how long his attention and effort can hold up at that end. If the Blazers starting springing leaks in the middle of the floor, things become a lot easier for George and Russell Westbrook.
