PBKS vs DC IPL 2021 Dream11 Team Selection: Recommended Players As Captain and Vice-Captain, Probable Lineup To Pick Your Fantasy XI

Punjab Kings fans should chin up as KL Rahul successfully underwent surgery for appendicitis on Monday. The PBKS captain flew to Mumbai via a charter plane, where he underwent laparoscopic appendectomy, a minimally invasive surgery. While any official statement on Rahul’s health is yet to come, ESPNcricinfo reported that the 29-year-old has been asked to take a week’s rest before restarting his training. Hence, the Mohali-based franchise will now consult with Indian Premier League (IPL) officials to determine Rahul’s quarantine period and other protocols needed for him to re-enter PBKS’ bio-secure bubble. .

For the unversed, PBKS, a statement, revealed that Rahul was suffering from ‘acute appendicitis’ and was subsequently taken to hospital. Due to this, the dashing opener missed Punjab’s recent game against Delhi Capitals and Mayank Agarwal took over the leadership role. Although Agarwal did well the bat and scored 99 in the clash, Delhi Capitals eventually walked away with a comfortable seven-wicket win.

This was Punjab’s fifth loss in eight games, due to which they are sixth in the team standings. With the first half of IPL 2021 done and dusted, PBKS need to buckle up to seal a playoff berth. However, Rahul is set to miss some more games, and Mayank has a job in hand. Fortunately for Punjab, Rahul’s surgery was successful, and he’s likely to join the team after serving the required quarantine period.

Meanwhile, PBKS will next meet Virat Kohli’s Challengers Bangalore at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Thursday (May 6). Although Punjab had defeated RCB by 34 runs in their reverse fixture this season, Rahul will not feature in this game and replicating the history won’t be easy for Mayank Agarwal’s troop.

Granada vs Real Madrid, La Liga 2020-21: Marcelo Dropped From Squad After Argument With Zinedine Zidane

Real Madrid have a number of injury conerns in their defence and their backline for the clash against Granada was shortened even further after star defender Marcelo was left off the squad list by manager Zinedine Zidane despite being fully fit. It is understood that the Brazilian -back was axed from the team for Thursday’s game in La Liga due to an argument with the manager. Real Madrid Sweats it Out For La Liga 2021 Match Against Granada as the Title Race Still Remains Open.

Marcelo, who has been Real Madrid’s main left-back for over a decade, has been relegated to a back-up role by Zinedine Zidane since the arrival of Ferlan Mendy at the club. However, after the Frenchman was ruled out for the rest of the season with an injury, the Brazilin was expected to replace him in the team but has seen himself being excluded from the squad for the crucial encounter against Granada at Los Carmenes. Ronald Koeman Doubtful About Barcelona Clinching La Liga 2021 Title After 3-3 Draw Against Levante.

Real Madrid Squad

According to a report from Goal, Marcelo’s exclusion from the Real Madrid squad for the Granada encounter in La Liga was due to an argument with manager Zinedine Zidane. It is understood that the Brazilian is frustrated with his depleting role and the manager’s tactics and line-up decisions in recent months with the coming to head at Tuesday’s training session.

The left-back has been starved of minutes this season as he is 15th in the Real Madrid squad for total minutes this term after playing the majority of the campaign as the back-up for Ferlan Mendy. It is understood that the Brazilian isn’t the only veteran frustrated with Zinedine Zidane’s tactics and there is a growing concern that the manager might leave at the end of the season.

Real Madrid will have to count on youngster Miguel Gutierrez to step up in the absence of the first-choice left-backs in the important encounter against Granada as they look to keep the pressure on leaders Atletico Madrid. With three games left in the season, Zidane men are five points behind in the La Liga title race and will be aiming to cut the gap.

Cristiano Ronaldo Creates History After Scoring In Juventus' 3-1 Win Over Sassuolo in Serie A 2020-21 Fixture

Cristiano Ronaldo once again created history for Juventus as he netted in the 3-1 victory over Sassuolo on Wednesday. The Portuguese star netted his 100th goal for the club as he managed to get himself on the score-sheet just before half-time as Andrea Pirlo’s men still remain in contention for Champions League qualification heading into the final stretch of the season. Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala Score 100th Goal To Keep Bianconeri in Top-Four Race (Watch Goal Highlights).

With his strike against Roberto de Zerbi’s men, Cristiano Renaldo became the fastest player to reach the 100-goal for Juventus, achieving the landmark milestone in just 131 appearances and becoming the first player in the Italian club’s history to net a century of goals in less than three seasons.

Prior to Wednesday, only Omar Sivori and Roberto Baggio had required less than five seasons to reach the 100-goal mark. However, Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed the two, reaching the landmark in just less than three seasons having joined the Bianconeri in 2018-19 from Real Madrid on a record transfer fee.

100 Goals For Juventus

With his strike against Sassuolo, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner became the first player in history to score more than 100 goals with three different clubs and his national team, having achieved the feat first with Manchester United (118 goals) than Real Madrid (450 goals) followed by Portugal (103 goals).

Unique Feat

Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract with Juventus expires next season and at the moment there are no talks about his renewal as there is uncertainty over the Portuguese star’s future at the club following an underwhelming campaign as this season saw the Bianconeri unable to defend the league title for the first time in 10 years and battling for Champions League qualification.

Champions League 2021 Final: Porto to Be Confirmed as Venue for Final Match Between Manchester City and Chelsea

London, May 13: Porto is set to be confirmed as host of the Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City after Portuguese authorities have approved the return of supporters to stadiums.

UEFA is planning to announce by the end of the week that the 50,000-capacity Estádio do Dragão will be used for the May 29 showpiece with thousands of fans from both English clubs set to be allowed into the game, people with knowledge of the planning told The Associated Press on Wednesday. They spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the talks.

Stadiums have been closed to in Portugal but pandemic restrictions are being eased to allow them to be at 10% capacity for the final round of league games next Wednesday.  Final Match Between Manchester City and Chelsea Will Reportedly Take Place in Portugal.

UEFA is hoping for more than 10,000 people to be at the Porto stadium after having to move the final from Istanbul to Portugal for a second successive year.

The initial backup plan had been to use Wembley Stadium in London but talks with the British government stalled on Monday over being able to quarantine waivers for the and broadcasters required by UEFA to attend the game.

Portugal is on England’s “green list” of 12 low-risk territories where people can travel from next Monday without having to quarantine upon their return, making it easier for City and Chelsea fans to attend the game.

Istanbul became impractical for the Champions League final once the British government announced on Friday that was being placed on the “red list” of countries requiring anyone returning to enter mandatory hotel quarantine for 10 days. Premier League 2020-21: Emile Smith Rowe Scores Sole Goal As Arsenal Beat Chelsea 1–0.

UEFA on Wednesday announced that the referee for the final will be Antonio Mateu Lahoz, who sent Pep Guardiola off during a game three years ago. The City manager confronted the Spanish official for ruling out a goal as his team lost to Liverpool in the quarterfinals of the Champions League in 2018. Mateu Lahoz has officiated in six matches in the elite European club competition this season.
