Whatever the preseason expectations, these are now two of the most exciting young teams in Europe , and they should provide plenty of entertainment over the two legs. The 18-year-old has scored 19 times in 33 games across all competitions.

All he had to do was two-putt for a par and the win. Usually resigned to fail, Garcia proved to be more resilient than ever. "But you know, I was like, well, if that's what's supposed to happen, let it happen", he said. "It was a wonderful battle", Rose said. "It's always nice to be a part of history", Rose said. "He's had his fair share of heartbreak". Garcia and Rose's subsequent approach shots landed at 12 feet and 14 feet respectfully.
But the most important message Garcia received may have come before he took his first swing. "I knew I was playing well and I remained calm", Garcia said. "It was a good putt". "I hit it where I wanted". "So I'm very proud of that". I picked my line - I trusted that it would break because in practice, that's what I've been seeing.
A 31-year-old woman, Maxinne Spratt, says she's received death threats after calling Betts an ape on social media stating that he "should go back to the zoo where him and his family belong".

The letter continued that the abuse had an impact not only on the players but on their families and the wider indigenous community.
If Sergio Garcia's approach into 15th wasn't shot of the day then Matt Kuchar's hole in one on the 16th definitely was. "For me, the most positive thing is that I feel like I have so much room for improvement". Rose, meanwhile, took dead aim. "That putt really turned the clock a little bit for me". So back it went to the 18th tee for sudden death, a exhausted drive from Rose handing the advantage to the Spaniard, who made no mistake second time around.

He also joked that he'd have to set aside some money for fines next year. The Pacers ran out to a 16-4 lead and built a 21-point lead with 1:55 to play in the first quarter. Guard/forward Glenn Robinson III (left calf strain) sat out his ninth straight game. As for the Pacers , Al Jefferson tweaked his ankle on Sunday and is questionable which shouldn't impact the Pacers .
In the same interview, Dybala also stated there is no player in the game comparable to his imperious Argentina team-mate. This is a very good referee and it's unlikely we'll see any controversies, but I'm really terrified. We're better than them. "It's an important game, a nice one to play, and we'll play it with the understanding and the belief that we can beat Barcelona and go through".
Wenger has been in charge of the club for more than 20 years, but is yet to accept the reported offer of a new contract for next season and beyond as recent results have left his proud record of qualifying for the Champions League every season in peril.
He eagled the 15th, with Rose birdieing the par-five, bringing the pair together again on 9-under. All ranked among the top 14 in the world. And it's a big part of Augusta National, which could prove to be the ultimate challenge. He is the only player to shoot under par in all three rounds. But he was still in a four-way tie for the lead, and it looked as though he had regained his form when he birdied two of the first four holes Saturday.

The start of The Masters is just a day away. "It's an fantastic place to be, especially with the weather that's coming in".

Albert isn't the fastest guy. "If you get your [rear] against the wall, you can't jump". With Mother Nature intervening, and we will have to wait one more day for more of the shenanigans these two teams have been putting together.
The Cubs took two of three in the series as they did in St. Louis in the opening series of the season. Zach Davies allowed five runs in five innings to fall to 0-2.

It is because he can talk for Texas, conjure golf from the gods and, of course , tame Augusta with more than his fair quotient of cussedness .

Garcia led by three shots after five holes, but Rose rallied with birdies on Nos. Instead of pouting, he figured out how to make par. He clenched both fists and shook them repeatedly.

There were sighs of relief in east London where West Ham claimed victory in a six-pointer against a Swansea side who are now without a win in five games.
I'm still the same, goofy guy. He two-putted from 26 feet for his final birdie of the day. He's expecting a $500 payday on a $25 bet.

His issues often show up on moving day, so both players face crucial rounds Saturday.
Koeman is said to be losing patience with Barkley with his comments on Sunday showing he could leave the club this summer. We scored and then we played really cleverly until the end of the game.
