Slovakian club forfeits UCL qualifier over virus cases

first_img Neutral venues are an option if a country’s pandemic situation means it cannot stage games organized by UEFA, whose president has identified a potential problem. If governments or public officials overreach their authority to prevent games, UEFA head Aleksander Ceferin told The Associated Press on Sunday, ”then we will have to think that the teams from those countries will have to play on a neutral ground.” Kosovo league title winner Drita went out of the Champions League when it was prevented by authorities in Switzerland from playing a preliminary round game at a stadium next to UEFA’s headquarters. Two players had tested positive ahead of playing Northern Ireland’s Linfield. On Monday, UEFA removed a second Kosovan team, Prishtina, from the Europa League preliminary round. Multiple members of the Prishtina delegation, including around 10 players in squads who arrived on two different flights, tested positive and were put into quarantine in Gibraltar last week. The club had made emergency loans of players from other clubs to fulfil the UEFA fixture. The champion of Slovakia on Monday became the second team to be removed from the Champions League qualifying rounds after players tested positive for COVID-19. UEFA said its appeals committee made an urgent ruling that Slovan Bratislava must forfeit its first-round qualifying game against KI Klaksvik as a 3-0 loss after it was twice postponed in the Faeroe Islands last week. Public authorities in the Faeroes had put two separate squads of players from Slovakia into quarantine because of positive tests by individual members of the visiting club’s group. UEFA competition rules during the pandemic give authority over COVID-19 cases to local health officials who can effectively stop a game being played. The UEFA rules are being tested as teams from 55 countries begin to compete in qualifying games through September. AC Milan, Tottenham and Benfica are among teams set to play single-leg elimination games next month in a tight schedule with few options to rearrange if players or officials test positive. Slovan said at the weekend it wanted to appeal against any UEFA ruling and could seek an urgent decision from the Court of Arbitration for Sport. However, Slovan’s intended opponent KI has now advanced to play on Wednesday in Switzerland, against Young Boys in the second qualifying round. Slovan official Ivan Kmotrik Jr was quoted on the club’s website suggesting local officials in the Faeroes tried to ensure the game would not take place. Just two weeks into a seven-week qualifying program for the next Champions League and Europa League competitions, three teams from two UEFA federations have had to forfeit their games. All three teams were drawn away from home in locations where virus cases are managed by public officials; the Faeroe Islands, Switzerland and Gibraltar.

Three questions the Warriors will have to answer this offseason

first_imgQuinn Cook became a reliable spot-up shooter but 2018-19 was the last year of his current contract. The Warriors also didn’t receive much this season from 2018 first-round pick Jacob Evans.The Warriors will have to add a few pieces to their second unit in the offseason and almost certainly will not have the cap space to do it. They’ll need to get creative. All season long, the 30-year-old star was expected to opt out of his contract and become a free agent this summer. He had reportedly been considering leaving the Warriors and was linked to the Knicks, Clippers, and Nets, among others.But, Durant ruptured his Achilles in Game 5 against the Raptors and will be out for most, if not all, of next season.It is unclear if the injury changes Durant’s offseason plans. He could utilize his player option and return to the Warriors, although that is reportedly his last resort. Or, he could still choose to sign elsewhere — at least three teams, as well as the Warriors, are still open to giving him a max contract, according to ESPN.Durant’s choice will have a major impact on Golden State’s future, one way or the other.Who will play center?The Warriors will enter the offseason with a big hole in the middle of their lineup.DeMarcus Cousins surprisingly signed a one-year deal with Golden State last July. He was inconsistent in 2018-19 and also dealt with a torn quad during the playoffs. But he’ll still most likely be out of the Warriors’ price range this summer and he’s expected to receive a bigger contract from another team.Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell are both also set to become free agents.The Warriors appear like they will attempt to re-sign either Looney or Bell, if not both. They also could look to add a big man via trade or with the mid-level exception.Damian Jones, who has played in just 49 NBA games, has one season remaining on his contract and should be back with Golden State in 2019-20, as well.How will the bench be reshaped?At the beginning of the Steve Kerr era, the bench was a strength for the Warriors. But, it became a weakness this season.Andre Iguodala was in and out of the starting lineup and can be a contributor defensively. The wing, however, undeniably took a step back on the other end of the floor, as did longtime backup point guard Shaun Livingston. NBA Finals 2019: 7 key stats from the Raptors’ championship run The Warriors now turn their attention to the offseason as their roster could look different in 2019-20.Here are three questions Golden State will soon have to answer:What will happen with Kevin Durant?This is arguably the biggest question of the offseason. Related News Kawhi Leonard offers Kevin Durant heartfelt recovery advice The Warriors’ attempt at a three-peat came up short.Golden State’s bid at history came to an end when it fell to the Raptors 114-110 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday.
