Independiente enlist local wizard to help win Recopa Sudamericana

Having drawn in the first leg last week, Independiente have enlisted the help of a local wizard to ensure they beat Gremio in the upcoming second leg of their Recopa Sudamericana duel.

Independiente made the long journey across the border and into Brazil earlier this week, arriving in Porto Alegre late on Tuesday evening.

Getting off the coach, fans noticed the familiar figure of Manuel, a die-hard Independiente fan who also operates as a brujo -- a warlock/shaman type figure in his local neighbourhood.


Frankfurt fans' tennis ball protest shows concern over German football future

RB Leipzig's Peter Gulacsi picks up tennis balls following a protest at the Waldstadion on Monday.

Even Eintracht Frankfurt supporters did not know what to expect as they headed to the Waldstadion for their club's clash with RB Leipzig, the first of the Bundesliga's five Monday night matches guaranteed by the new TV contract. They knew there would be protests, though they could not ever have imagined how successful they would be.

This season, for the first time, the league made six different kickoff times possible, stating that Monday kickoffs would guarantee more rest for those involved in the...

Alexis Sanchez will play in his first Champions League game for Manchester United on Wednesday when they take on Sevilla in the first leg of the round of 16.

The Chilean's last appearance in the competition was when he came on as a second half substitute in Arsenal's humiliating 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich, which took the aggregate score to 10-2.

Before those games, Sanchez had reportedly been open to extending his contract with Arsenal, but the manner of the defeat sparked him in to action. He...

How VAR can be improved: Education, speed, communication

The trials of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in England have not yet brought the clarity that its proponents were hoping for. While on the few occasions it has been used the correct decisions have broadly been reached, the disruption to the game and the additional confusion caused are enough to wonder whether the whole process is worthwhile.

However, it looks like VAR is here to stay: the indications are that it will be used in this summer's World Cup, with a decision due on Feb. 3, while its...
