Football: Bayern against Dortmund without fans because of corona

18.09 hrs: The match between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund for the German Supercup will be finished Wednesday without an audience. This was decided by the Munich City Council because of the growing number of corona infections in that city.

In the first period, the same is happening now. Normally Friday is the fixed game night in the first division, but because of the coronavirus the clubs are only allowed to receive a reduced number of spectators in their stadiums and so many football fans are dependent on the TV. It even looks like no spectators are allowed to enter the football stadiums at all for the time being.

It was planned that in the second period, which starts at the end of October, Friday would become the regular playing day again. However, the KNVB will now also spread the matches from the tenth to the nineteenth round in five days.

Olympic Games: Torch relay through Japan along original route

13.39 hrs: The Olympic flame begins a journey through Japan on March 25 next year. The organisation of the Olympic Games assumes that the flame can travel the route planned for this year, through the 47 regions of the Asian country. The torch relay starts in Fukushima, the region hit by an earthquake in 2011, followed by a tsunami and a nuclear disaster. It led to at least 16,000 deaths.

The Olympic flame was traditionally ignited in Olympia Greece in March and arrived in Japan on 20 March. All those ceremonies took place soberly because of the coronavirus. A few days after the arrival of the flame, Japan decided, in consultation with the International Olympic Committee, to postpone the Tokyo Games to 2021.

The flame was shown to the public for a while in Fukushima, but at the beginning of April the doors were closed because of the virus. The lantern with the flame has recently been seen again at the Olympic Museum in Tokyo.

The relay through Japan starts on 25 March at the training complex of the national football team, J-Village. About 10,000 people will walk through Japan with the flame. The final point of the torch relay will be the opening ceremony at Tokyo Olympic Stadium on Friday 23 July.

The 52-year-old German team started the new season with a defeat at RB Leipzig (3-1) and had to bow to VfB Stuttgart in its own stadium after a 4-1 lead on Saturday. St. Juste and Boetius both had a base place.

In November last year, Beierlorzer was fired from FC Köln, but soon found a new employer in Mainz. Barely a year later, he has to leave again. Assistant Jan-Moritz Light takes over his duties for the time being.

Presumably he will show his new sweater on Sunday in Liège-Bastogne-Liège. Alaphilippe also has the Amstel Gold Race (Saturday 10 October) on his program.

Alejandro Valverde does not participate in the Walloon Arrow either. The 40-year-old Spaniard, with five victories (2006, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017) record holder in the Belgian classic, takes a break. Valverde finished eighth at the World Championships, after becoming twelfth in the final classification of the Tour de France.

Football: Flamengo plays after a remarkable turn


09:21 p.m. Flamengo, plagued by the coronavirus, has come into action in the Brazilian football league. One day before the match, the duel with Palmeiras was postponed by the judge, but ten minutes before the kick-off Flamengo was ordered to take office.

With a heavily devalued team Flamengo left a point to the duel in São Paulo: 1-1.

Flamengo has to deal with no less than 19 players who tested positive for the coronavirus. The club asked the Brazilian League to postpone the duel, but the union did not honor the request. The national sports court also rejected a request from Flamengo, after which a judge in Rio de Janeiro said Flamengo was in the right place. Shortly before the match, a court turned back the decision to postpone the duel. According to the Brazilian League, the outbreak in the reigning champion was a stand-alone incident, which has nothing to do with the Brazilian competition.

Both clubs had come to the stadium just to be sure.

Tennis: Australian Open wants tennis players to train during quarantine

08:50 hours Tennis players participating in the Australian Open early next year will probably be able to train during their quarantine. Thats what Tournament Director Craig Tiley said.

Players must, due to the strict coronare rules in Australia upon arrival, immediately two weeks in quarantine. Tiley is currently working to ensure players that they dont have to sit still in those two weeks. The tournament is working on so-called quarantine hubs, where players across the country – isolated from the outside world – can prepare themselves for the grandslam tournament and preparatory events.

Australia is a safe place and the people here have done a good job and kept the number of infections very low by wearing mouthcaps, taking social distancing seriously and adhering to hygiene regulations, said Tiley, who hopes to be publicly welcome at Melbourne Park.

Tily advises participants to travel to Australia as early as mid-December. Normally, many players arrive around Christmas or later. Most tournaments in Australia start around New Year, but the final calendar has not yet been published.

The Australian Open starts on Monday 18 January. The state of Victoria, in which Melbourne is located, has been in lockdown since early August after a second wave of infections.
