Buccaneers – Raiders Match Bumped Off Of “Sunday Night Football”

This Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not be playing the Las Vegas Raiders, as previously scheduled in the NFL. After at least one player from Vegas tested positive for the coronavirus, league officials announced the move. Now, the Seattle Seahawks will play the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

The change to the schedule is intended to ensure that players have an NFL game to watch on Sunday. With significant sports betting interest behind the Seahawks whenever they play, this new game clearly won’t struggle to find an audience.

Trent Brown, a tackler for the Raiders, was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list this Wednesday. Brown is now at home in self-isolation, as per team policies. Officially, the league still expects the Raiders-Bucs game on Sunday, with the Seahawks-Cardinals bout serving as “plan B”.

Gareth Bale Warns He’ll Get “Sharper” After Solid First Tottenham Start

Gareth Bale recently left Real Madrid to return to his former home in north London, Tottenham Hotspur. Now, after his first start (and victory) with Spurs in the Europa League, Bale is warning opponents he’ll only get sharper. The 31-year-old winger clocked 62 minutes in the game against Austrian side LASK in the Europa League and played a cross that led to an own goal.

However, for Bale, the 3-0 win on Thursday evening was just a warm-up. His team was the UK bookmakers favorite going into the match. The Welshman admits he is yet to hit top gear and considers himself to be in a sort of “mini pre-season”.

He expects to be back at full speed soon enough, though. “When I get fully match-fit I will be sharper, and I’ll hopefully contribute even more,” said Bale after the match.

Real Madrid Reportedly Weighing Options To Replace Zidane

After just a handful of games in the 2020/21 season, the Real Madrid managerial rumour mill has started to turn, with Zinedine Zidane reportedly under growing pressure after a string of poor results. Recent back-to-back losses in La Liga to Cadiz and in the UEFA Champions League to Shakhtar Donetsk has seen the pressure pile on the Frenchman.

Zizou led a much-lauded campaign last season, winning his second La Liga crown as manager. However, a disappointing run of insipid performances seems to have placed Zidane in hot water.

According to reports, Real Madrid would already have two candidates lined up to take Zidane’s place. Former-Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino and Real Madrid legend Raúl make up the shortlist, with Real president Florentino Pérez favoring the former Madrid superstar.
