The rojiblancos face Chelsea on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge with a more than complicated goal, to lift the 0-1 first leg at Wanda. Almost a feat, but not at all impossible, especially with the memory of the 2-3 achieved last season against Liverpool in the English fiefdom, a result that would be worth the mattresses.

Their wide advantage in the League has been drastically reduced after their setbacks against Levante, on two occasions, and Getafe, and with their draw against Real Madrid. The Barça presses to only four points, the targets are six and the European elimination...

    A hoard of more than 100 elephant tusks aboard a sunken ship that was lost for nearly 500 years has been traced to West Africa in a new study. Scientists used DNA analysis to compare the well-preserved tusks – recovered from a 16th century Portuguese shipping vessel called the Bom Jesus that was discovered in 2008 – to those belonging to various species of modern-day elephants. The 500-year-old ivory matched up with the African forest elephant (Loxodonta cyclotis), which is native to humid forests in West Africa and Congo Basin.  Traders aboard the ill-fated shipping vessel would have maimed the species on the West coast of Africa in their attempts to flog the creatures' ivory in India – before the ship sank and the traders perished at sea.  The study reveals that African forest elephants were already living in the savannah in the early 16th century – challenging the notion that they first moved out of the rainforest in the early 20th century.  This photo shows Raw elephant tusks from the 16th century Bom Jesus shipwreck, which was eventually found the Skeleton...

    On November 20th, 2019, Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino as the manager of Tottenham Hotspur. At the time, the high-profile appointment was met with mixed reviews from those within the footballing world, but the Portuguese head coach is proving the doubters wrong. While pinpointing one reason for Mourinho’s early success at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would somewhat undermine the complexity of management, the development of Harry Kane mustn’t be ignored. So, let’s take a look at how the Englishman is spearheading Mourinho’s North London revolution. Adding More to His Game As touched on above, few believed that Mourinho would succeed in getting the most out of Spurs’ world-class talent. Following a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at the end of the 2019-20 campaign, Paul Merson suggested that Kane may have needed to seriously think about his future under the Portuguese coach. However, such suggestions couldn’t have been more wrong. In terms of goalscoring, there are few more ruthless strikers in Europe than Kane. That said, perhaps where the Englishman has surpassed expectations is in the development of his link-up play. According to...

He was .34 seconds faster than teammate Lewis Hamilton and .78 ahead of Red Bull driver Max Verstappen.
