Man City Exit Champions League in Barcelona Loss


The final day of Champions League results have led to two more teams departing the competition. Wednesday 18 March 2015 will live painfully in the memories of the Man City team, having lost 1-0 in the second leg of their knockout tie against Barcelona.

After beating Man City 2-1 at the Etihad, Barcelona put the tie beyond to doubt with a 1-0 win courtesy of an Ivan Rakitić lob. Sergio Agüero could have pulled a goal back if he had managed to score his penalty. The inquest begins now for Man City.

In the other Champions League football results from yesterday, Juventus secured their place in the quarterfinals of the competition by trouncing Borussia Dortmund 3-0 away. Having won 2-1 in the first leg, Juventus secured a 5-1 aggregate victory. Goals last night came from Alvaro Morata and Carlos Tevez, the latter of whom scored twice.

Lingfield Park Racing Tips – 20 March 2015


Lingfield Park is a racecourse that made the switch from turf to Polytrack in order to increase consistency. As a result, the going is standard for every race. Previewing Friday 20 March, we are looking to Sky Sports to find a solid horse racing nap of the day.

From a race card of seven, there is one that stands out above the others. There will be six runners aged three years old and competing for an £11,500 prize pool in the 15:55. The horse to consider for the race is Apache Storm at odds of 9/4. He has been in pretty good form and is the favourite.

Just before the 15:55 is the 15:25 race, boasting a £7,400 prize pool and six runners aged four years or older. Betting each way makes sense for the two favourites, which are Blhadawa (6/4) and Multitask (7/2).

Haydock Racing Results – 18 March 2015


Haydock Park features heavily in the minds of horse racing enthusiasts. Quite simply, it is a quality course that attracts competitive horses. The latest UK horse racing results we have to share are from Wednesday 18 March on a day where the going was good to soft, while good in places.

The first race of the day really shook up the action, with the highly favoured 4/1 A Boy Named Suzi not even managing to place. Instead, the finishers of the 14:10 were Purple n’ Gold (8/1), Handiwork (22/1), and Cinders And Ashes (16/1), respectively.

Another competitive race was the 15:50 in which eight runners participated. Similar to the 14:10, favourite horse Roberto Pegasus could not place at odds of 9/4. Stealing the glory was Carrigdhoun at extremely long but highly rewarding odds of 25/1. Galway Jack came second (9/2), with Rowdy Rocher finished third (13/2).
