Ligue 1: PSG lose first game of the season to Lens

first_img The German also handed a start to 20-year-old Marcin Bulka in goal. Even without more than 600 million euros worth of talent, PSG were able to call on internationals such as Marco Verratti, Idrissa Gueye and Ander Herrera as well as Pablo Sarabia and Presnel Kimpembe. But despite 78 percent of the possession in the first-half alone, they were unable to find the cutting edge to the delight of the 3,800 partisans who were watching Lens’s first home game in the top flight for nine seasons. And PSG paid the price for their lack of precision 13 minutes into the second-half at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis. Under no pressure and trying to play out from the back, Bulka slid a weak pass towards Verratti that was snapped up by Ignatius Ganago, who slammed home. The strike was the Cameroon international’s first goal for his new club after signing from Nice in July. “We had a good first half,” said Tuchel. “We were in their half most of the time and we were playing with a good rhythm, good organisation and structure but we couldn’t make the most of our chances. “We made the mistake and afterwards it was clear that we lost our rhythm. We were obviously tired after 75 minutes of such an intense match.” Loading… Read Also: Lionel Messi gifts blind boy life-changing glasses Tuchel’s depleted band will need to rediscover their mojo quickly during a rush of fixtures in the next 10 days.

SBTech sets out ‘go’ live process for WLA member hat-trick

And then we move into the development process itself, so we have multiple sections that we go through from our development teams.“We work with agile methodology and with a complete testing environment to make sure that every product solution, every version, every release is fully tested to the nth degree before it is released to the customer for UAT. And once that’s completed we sign it off as a joint business and we move forward to go live.”The third leg of this WLA hat-trick came last month through a multi-channel sportsbook partnership with Svenska Spel, which followed wins with Veikkaus and The Oregon Lottery.At the time, it was reported that the procurement team at Svenska Spel was impressed with proprietary features including Yourbet – a bet builder tailored specifically for the country’s marketplace which allows players to customise bets across popular regional sports.Coxon admitted that SBTech is particularly excited to see ‘Yourbet’ in action on Svenska Spel, one of Sweden’s former gambling monopolies.“It’s going to be huge,” he said. “For us, having these product innovations going live with some of the biggest businesses in the world – specifically some of the most recent contract awards – is incredibly exciting for us as a business. “We have a fantastic team of developers, a wonderful product team. For them to see these products live in new jurisdictions with tier 1 WLA members is incredibly exciting for our business.” StumbleUponlast_img read more

The targets will have different point values — points will be awarded if the puck hits a target or hits its base — and each player will get seven shot attempts.In the middle of the event, members of Canada and the United States’ national women’s teams will play in their own 3-on-3 game, making for a new chapter in their historic rivalry.MORE: Everything to know about All-Star Weekend’s Elite Women’s 3-on-3 tournamentHere is how to watch the NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Friday:What TV channel is the 2020 NHL All-Star Skills Competition on?United States: NBC SportsCanada: CBC, Sportsnet and TVASNHL All-Star Skills Competition: What time does it start?Date: Friday, Jan. 24Time: 8 p.m. ETOrder of events at the NHL All-Star Skills CompetitionNHL Fastest SkaterIn a timed event, eight skaters will individually skate one full lap with the fastest time being declared the winner.
