Courtois Real Madrid lost control in Girona defeat

first_imgGoalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes Girona’s strong second-half display proved key to ending Real Madrid’s eight-match unbeaten run.Prior to today’s encounter, Real had secured five successive La Liga wins to put themselves within six points of leaders Barcelona and an unlikely title challenge looked set to go ahead after beating city rivals Atletico Madrid 3-1 last weekend.But Los Blancos were sent back crashing down to Earth this afternoon in front of their home supporters at the Santiago Bernabeu.Casemiro’s 25th-minute header from Toni Kroos’ cross down the right wing appeared to set a heavily changed Real side, who were missing a suspended Luka Modric with Gareth Bale benched, on course for a sixth consecutive league win.Things soon fell apart though in the second-half with Cristhian Stuani’s penalty putting Girona back on level terms before Portu headed in another for the visitors in the 75th-minute to seal a shock 2-1 win.Adding to Real’s misery came when Sergio Ramos was sent off in stoppage-time for an attempted overhead kick that instead caught Girona’s Pedro Alcala.“We played well in the first half, but the pace was not as high as in some of our recent games,” said Courtois on the club website.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“They had two chances which I was able to stop but in the second half they played much better and brought a real threat. Girona always make life difficult, it’s three points we really had to win today”.“The penalty is a shame. After that we struggled to control the game and that’s when they made it 1-2.“We didn’t react well and Girona took the win. Now we have to continue winning games and put in a good performance against Levante. We have to keep fighting, La Liga is a long-run thing”.Santiago Solari’s side are now third in La Liga and will next take a trip to Levante UD next Sunday.FP: @realmadrid 1-2 @GironaFC ⚽ @Casemiro 25′; Stuani 65′ (p), Portu 75’#RMLiga pic.twitter.com/pta596lvkJ— Real Madrid C.F.⚽ (@realmadrid) February 17, 2019last_img read more

Men Too Karan Oberoi granted bail on surety of Rs 50000 in

first_imgKaran OberoiInstagramTelevision actor and singer Karan Oberoi, who was accused of rape and blackmail by a female friend, has been granted bail on Friday, June 7 by the Bombay High Court. The high-profile case has had many twists and turns, giving rise to the debate on the #MenToo movement as far as sexual harassment is concerned.Karan Oberoi had been arrested for the alleged rape and blackmail of a female astrologer in Mumbai on May 6 and sent to 14 days’ judicial custody. In a very filmy twist to the tale, the complainant was attacked and it turned out that the goons attacking her were sent by her own lawyer, Ali Kashif Khan. On June 3, Khan surrendered before Oshiwara police. He was arrested and later granted bail by the Andheri court.Karan Oberoi’s friend and actress Pooja Bedi was the first to come out in support of him, saying he has been victimised by a woman who was in love with him. Karan’s sister Gurbani aka Vani, and his band members from Band of Boys, Sudhanshu Pandey, Chintoo Bhosle and Sherrin Verghese also spoke for him at a press conference soon after his arrest.Reports said the complainant had met the accused via a dating application in 2016, after which he promised to marry her. A report in Mumbai Mirror, without naming the actor, had said that the Oshiwara police had registered a first information report (FIR) against the actor-singer for allegedly raping an astrologer under the pretext of marrying her. The victim has also alleged that he had recorded a video on his mobile phone. This happened after he allegedly sedated her with spiked coconut water in his flat. He later allegedly extorted money from her.Much of this has turned out to be a conspiracy after the accused submitted WhatsApp chats with the complainant, clearly showing her one-sided interest in him and that he had never promised to marry her. Vani also confirmed that Karan and the complainant were never intimate.Karan Oberoi acted in the recent web series Inside Edge. He was also seen in the popular TV series like Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin and Saaya, apart from singing with Band of Boys.last_img read more

Metro Tries Out New Safety Technology On The Light Rail Lines

first_imgListen 00:00 /01:11 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share X – / 4Earlier this year, two people were hit and killed by trains just a few days apart. But the close calls are harder to measure. The transit agency has released several videos showing people walking or riding directly into the path of a train.To try to cut down on those incidents Metro is rolling out a new warning system, developed in conjunction with the Texas A&M Transportation Institute. As for how it works, a bluetooth signal from the train sets off an audible warning at the rail stop. Metro CEO Tom Lambert says they’re trying it out at two locations, Main Street Square and Hermann Park.“We expect to learn more lessons from this as we look to apply it at additional locations along the corridor,” adds Lambert.And they may expand the technology in the future according to Metro board member Jim Robinson.“Are there applications of this that can be put on people’s cellphones?” asks Robinson. “If they had the application on the cellphone and they were a motorist it would warn them the train was nearby.”Along with the new warning system, Metro says it’s also working on possible design changes at the Hermann Park and Med Center rail stops. last_img read more
