La Liga: Lionel Messi strikes twice as Barcelona hammer Osasuna 7-1

A huge “Thanks Leo” banner was raised before kick-off at the Camp Nou, whilst many fans imitated Messi`s goal celebration by raising Barca shirts with Messi`s name on the back in the 10th minute.


Catalonia: Lionel Messi rewarded a homage by Barcelona fans with two more goals as they thrashed Osasuna 7-1 to move three points clear of Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.

The much-criticised Andre Gomes and Paco Alcacer also bagged doubles, whilst Javier Mascherano scored his first Barca goal in seven years with the club from the penalty spot.

Madrid have two games in hand and can move back level on points with victory at Deportivo la Coruna later on Wednesday.

Osasuna remain rock-bottom and will be relegated if Leganes beat Las Palmas on Wednesday.

Messi`s brilliance against Madrid at the weekend El Clasico kept Barca in the title race as he netted his 500th Barca goal with the last kick of the game to hand the Catalans a 3-2 win.

A huge “Thanks Leo” banner was raised before kick-off at the Camp Nou, whilst many fans imitated Messi`s goal celebration by raising Barca shirts with Messi`s name on the back in the 10th minute.

The five-time World Player of the Year responded by opening the scoring two minutes later as he pounced on an error in the Osasuna defence to stroll through on goal and lift the ball over the advancing Salvatore Sirigu.

Gomes has been the scapegoat for many of Barca`s most disappointing defeats this season.

But the Portuguese had arguably his best night in a Barca shirt as he drilled home Ivan Rakitic`s cross to make it 2-0 on the half hour.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen was Barca`s other hero from the weekend with a string of stunning saves.

However, the German international was caught out by Roberto Torres`s free-kick which brought Osasuna back into the game three minutes into the second half.

Barca, though, simply went through the gears with a four-goal burst in 10 devastating minutes.

Firstly, Gomes slotted home his second of the night after Gerard Pique`s initial effort came back off the post.

Messi then curled in his 49th goal in 47 appearances this season from the edge of the area.

And the Argentine instantly made way for 19-year-old Carles Alena to keep him fresh for Saturday`s Catalan derby at Espanyol.

Alcacer then finished on the stretch for Barca`s fifth.

And when Denis Suarez was felled in the area seconds later the cry went round the Camp Nou for Mascherano to take the spot-kick.

Rakitic obliged by stepping aside to let the Argentine take it and he smashed the ball into the roof of the net for his first goal in 319 Barca appearances.

Alcacer rounded off the scoring four minutes from time when he latched onto Suarez`s fine through ball to round Sirigu and slot into an empty net.

RPS vs KKR: Gautam Gambhir, Robin Uthappa brilliance powers Kolkata Knight Riders to top of IPL 10 standings

The duo stitched 158 runs off just 85 balls for the second wicket to help KKR chase down the 183-run target with 11 balls to spare.


Pune: Robin Uthappa made a mockery of Rising Pune Supergiant’s bowling attack to anchor Kolkata Knight Riders closer towards a play-off berth with a convincing seven wicket win in an IPL match, here tonight. (RPS vs KKR – As it Happened | Scorecard)

The India discard right-hander struck a match-winning 87 off just 47 balls balls and was ably supported by skipper Gautam Gambhir, who made 62 off 46 deliveries, as two-time champions KRR regained their spot in top of the standings with six wins from eight games.

While Uthappa decorated his knock with seven boundaries and six hits over the fence, Gambhir innings was laced with six fours and one six.

The duo stitched 158 runs off just 85 balls for the second wicket to help KKR chase down the 183-run target with 11 balls to spare.

Earlier, Steven Smith led from the front with an unbeaten 51 to lift Pune to a challenging 182 for five.

Smith’s half-century came off 37 balls with the help of four boundaries and a six.

Besides Smith, Ajinkya Rahane (46 off 41 balls), Rahul Tripathi (38 off 23), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (23 off 11) and Daniel Christian (16 off 6) also made useful contributions for the home team.

Left-arm chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of the bowlers for KKR with figures of two for 31.

Chasing the target, Sunil Narine (15 off 9 balls) once again got KKR off to a brisk start before he was run out in the third over.

Then Uthappa and Gambhir joined hands and took control off the chase with a bit of luck on their favour.

Uthappa was lucky to have survived a close LBW call when he was yet to open his account and later when Jaydev Unadkat made a mess of a chance at deep midwicket off Imran Tahir’s bowling with the batsman on 12.

The stylish right-hander grabbed the opportunities with both hands and thereafter opened his arms to struck boundaries and sixes at will.

Uthpappa did not spare a single Pune bowler with young Washington Sundar and Unadkat facing the maximum wrath.

Uthappa brought up his half-century in just 26 balls in the 11th over.

Gambhir, on the other hand, was content to play one and twos with occasional boundaries in between.

Gambhir too got a life at the personal score of 32, dropped by Sundar off Daniel Christian’s bowling.

The duo, however, could not finish off the chase as both departed while trying to get over the line as quickly as possible but not before doing the job for their side.

Earlier sent into bat, Pune made a brisk start, courtesy opener Tripathi’s aggressive strokeplay.

Tripathi was at his aggressive best while his experienced partner Rahane played the second fiddle.

Tripahi went about his shots and luck favoured him as he got two reprieves — first an outside in the fifth delivery of the innings which went just over wicketkeeper Uthappa’s reach and then Yusuf Pathan spilled a chance at long-on in the seventh over while running backwards.

During his stay at the crease Triptahi dealt mainly in boundaries and struck Narine (1/34) for three boundaries to pick up 15 runs in the sixth over.

However, Triptahi’s luck ran out shortly as he under- edged a Piyush Chawla (1/36) googly on to his stumps soon.

Tripathi’s dismissal hardly had any effect on Pune Supergiant’s scoring rate as Rahane and skipper Smith struck a boundary each in every over thereafter.

But Rahane fell four runs short of his second IPL 10 fifty when he was stumped by Uthappa off Narine’s bowling.

Rahane’s wicket brought in Dhoni who made his intentions clear from the onset.

Dhoni struck Chawla to the midwicket boundary in the third ball of the 15th over and then followed it up with a huge hit over long-off boundary off the next ball.

Dhoni continued his onslaught and clobbered Kuldeep Yadav for another six in the next over.

But a brilliant 18th over from Kuldeep Yadav and some fine glove work by Uthappa derailed Pune Supergiant’s surge.

Kuldeep Yadav foxed Dhoni and Manoj Tiwary with two beautiful googlies and Uthappa was quick to whip off the bails to dismiss the batsmen.

Just when it seemed KKR had managed to pull things back, Smith and Christian stepped on the accelerator and accumulated 30 runs off the last two overs, that included consecutive sixes by the latter off Chris Woakes, to take Pune beyond the 180-run mark.

Delhi MCD Election Results 2017 LIVE: BJP set to win 182 seats; AAP blames “EVM wave” for its rout

The MCD polls are being seen as a test of popularity of the AAP government, BJP’s ability to score a hat-trick in the local body and Congress’s efforts to revive itself in the metropolis.

WATCH: Lionel Messi scores 500th goal for Barcelona against Real Madrid to win El Clasico

Lionel Messi scored two goals against Real Madrid guiding Barcelona to a 3-2 win which also took them to the top of La Liga points table.

Football News

Madrid: Barcelona legend Lionel Messi produced yet another brilliant show for his team during Sunday’s match against Real Madrid where he scored his 500th goal for the club. Barcelona moved to the top of the La Liga table with a 3-2 win over their rivals.

Messi’s 500th goal, second of the match, came at a crucial time, after he netted one off his left foot from inside the area after a cross by Jordi Alba.

While Casemiro had opened the scoring for Madrid, Messi hit the equaliser soon.

After Barca’s thrilling win, manager Luis Enrique was full of praise for Messi.

“He is the best player for me in history and I have seen a lot of football,” said Barca boss Luis Enrique as he celebrated victory in his final Clasico in charge.

“In modern football when everyone is tactically and physically better he still makes the difference.

“The fact he has scored his 500th goal shows all of us as Barca fans are lucky to have him identified with the club.”

El Clasico: Lionel Messi’s 500th goal guides Barcelona to 3-2 win over Real Madrid

But Barca looked well on the road to victory when Ivan Rakitic`s stunning effort put the visitors 2-1 in front before Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was sent off for a wild lunge on Messi.


Madrid: Barcelona coach Luis Enrique revelled in turning the tables on bitter rivals Real Madrid as Lionel Messi struck deep into stoppage time to edge a thrilling El Clasico 3-2 on Sunday.

Messi`s second goal of the night was his 500th for Barcelona and took the Catalans to the top of La Liga.

“He is the best player for me in history and I have seen a lot of football,” said Enrique.

“In modern football when everyone is tactically and physically better he still makes the difference.

“The fact he has scored his 500th goal shows all of us as Barca fans are lucky to have him identified with the club.”

The timing of Messi`s strike also saw Barca gain revenge for Sergio Ramos`s stoppage time equaliser in a 1-1 draw when the sides last met back in December.

“It is marvellous for us to win in the 92nd minute. It is something that is normally more a characteristic of our rivals, but we like to do it too,” added Enrique.

Barca lead at the top of the table thanks to their better head-to-head record. Madrid, though, still have the advantage as they have a game in hand.

“To score in the 92nd minute is a huge confidence boost,” said Enrique, who will leave the club at the end of the season.

However, he and Barca captain Andres Iniesta called on Messi, whose contract expires at the end of next season, not to follow him in leaving the Camp Nou.

“Barca is an incredible club with many years of history, but without doubt an important part of that history is Leo Messi,” Enrique said.”I think the great thing about Leo is that he continues to surprise,” said Iniesta.

“After so many years he is still decisive. It is an honour and a blessing for the club to have him.”

By contrast, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane was left to lament his side`s over adventurous nature after conceding in stoppage time after being reduced to 10 men.

Messi had cancelled out Casemiro`s opener before half-time.

But Barca looked well on the road to victory when Ivan Rakitic`s stunning effort put the visitors 2-1 in front before Madrid captain Sergio Ramos was sent off for a wild lunge on Messi.

However, Madrid rallied when a man down as substitute James Rodriguez fired home an equaliser four minutes from time.

“Drawing the game with 10 men, to press high up the field is dangerous and we paid for that,” said Zidane.

“I can`t criticise the players for anything though. We gave our all, but we didn`t manage to get the three points.

“We didn`t deserve to lose, but that is football.”

Madrid now need to take at least 16 points from their final six La Liga games to be guaranteed the title.

“There will be much more of a title race, but it is still in our own hands,” added Zidane.

Madrid were also dealt a fresh injury blow for the remainder of their league season and upcoming Champions League semi-finals against Atletico Madrid as Gareth Bale faces another spell on the sidelines.

The Welshman lasted just 38 minutes on his return after missing Madrid`s last two outings with persistent ankle problems.

“I don`t regret anything,” said Zidane over his decision to start Bale.

“I am disappointed for him. He started the game well and then the injuries we can`t control.

“We will see what exactly the injury is and hope it is as little as possible.”

Exit polls predict massive BJP victory in MCD elections, rout for Arvind Kejriwal


Delhi: Voting began on Sunday morning for the Delhi municipal polls to 272 wards in which the ruling BJP is locked in a triangular battle with the Congress and the AAP.

Both the BJP and the Congress have exuded confidence about winning the electoral battle while the AAP is seeking to replicate its 2015 Assembly elections performance, despite suffering a debacle in the Rajouri Garden bypoll.

Polling began at 8 am amid tight security arrangements across the city.

For the first time in MCD elections, None Of The Above (NOTA) option has been made available.

The BJP is seeking to retain the turf which it has held for the last 10 years and fielded all fresh faces from 267 wards. The party has projected for itself a tally of over 200 out of the 272 seats.

The AAP and the Congress too have claimed that they will cross the 200-mark.

The erstwhile unified Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) was trifurcated in 2012 into North, South and East Municipal Corporations.

Feeling drained? Forget coffee, take the stairs for 10 minutes to re-energize yourself!

The study aimed to simulate the hurdles faced in a typical office setting, where workers spend hours sitting and staring at computer screens and don’t have time for a longer bout of exercise during the day.


New Delhi: What really gets your energy levels going in the mornings or when you’re absolutely exhausted? Some people would say coffee, some may say tea, while some would also go for a cold shower.

However, looks like there’s an even better, more powerful way to rejuvenate and energize yourself than your usual caffeine punch. All you have to do is walk up and down a flight of stairs for 10 minutes!

Researchers at the University of Georgia found that doing this at a regular pace was more likely to make participants feel energised than consuming 50 mg of caffeine, about the equivalent to the amount in a can of soda.

“We found, in both the caffeine and the placebo conditions, that there was not much change in how they felt,” said co-author Patrick J. O’Connor. “But with exercise they did feel more energetic and vigorous. It was a temporary feeling, felt immediately after the exercise, but with the 50 milligrams of caffeine, we didn’t get as big an effect.”

The study aimed to simulate the hurdles faced in a typical office setting, where workers spend hours sitting and staring at computer screens and don’t have time for a longer bout of exercise during the day. For the study, participants on separate days either ingested capsules containing caffeine or a placebo, or spent 10 minutes walking up and down stairs, about 30 floors total, at a low-intensity pace.

O’Connor wanted to compare an exercise that could be achieved by people in an office setting, where they have access to stairs and a little time to be active, but not enough time to change into workout gear, shower and change back into work clothes.

“Office workers can go outside and walk, but weather can be less than ideal. It has never rained on me while walking the stairs,” said O’Connor. “And a lot of people working in office buildings have access to stairs, so it’s an option to keep some fitness while taking a short break from work.”

Study participants were female college students who described themselves as chronically sleep deprived, getting less than 6 and half hours per night. To test the effects of caffeine versus the exercise, each group took some verbal and computer-based tests to gauge how they felt and how well they performed certain cognitive tasks. Neither caffeine nor exercise caused large improvements in attention or memory, but stair walking was associated with a small increase in motivation for work.

O’Connor added that there is still much research to be done on the specific benefits of exercising on the stairs, especially for just 10 minutes. But even a brief bout of stair walking can enhance feelings of energy without reducing cognitive function. “You may not have time to go for a swim, but you might have 10 minutes to walk up and down the stairs.”

The study is published in the journal Physiology and Behavior.
