We’ve still got games to go and while it’s still possible you’ve got to keep going.“There are five games left and if we win four and draw one – it’s a tall order but could still happen – then 37 points could be enough to keep you up.“If it [relegation] happens you’ve got to come back stronger next year – regroup and come back. But at the moment we’re not down and have got a chance.“We have win tomorrow and then win at Reading, for sure. Then we’ve got to beat Newcastle and Arsenal and get something at Liverpool. It’s tough, but that’s the dream.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookcenter_img See also:Redknapp warns QPR could struggle in the Championship next seasonlast_img read more

The next day, Olimpia will host the New York Red Bulls at Costa Rica’s national stadium in San Jose, though that contest will be played behind closed doors because of a ban carrying over from incidents before and during the team’s CONCACAF League quarterfinal against Alianza.Unrest following the Honduran presidential election has led to regular demonstrations after Juan Orlando Hernandez was declared the winner of a closely contested election between the incumbent and Salvador Nasralla.The election took place Nov. 26 but a winner was not declared until Dec. 16. Protests and demonstrations have continued through the new year, with Hernandez sworn in during an early-morning ceremony Saturday. Hernandez is the first Honduran president to serve consecutive terms after the country’s Supreme Electoral Tribunal decided in late 2016 that Hernandez could seek re-election.

The game was rescheduled several times before finally taking place just before Christmas. With the situation still volatile, CONCACAF elected to move the round of 16 matches as well as the quarterfinals, should either Honduran team move on.”The requests to move the matches, made individually by each club, were approved by the CONCACAF Council per section XVII. A. of the 2018 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League Regulations, which deals with cases of force majeure,” the CONCACAF release states. “Per the Council decision, should either Honduran club advance to the quarterfinals of the 2018 Champions League, those matches would also be played outside Honduras, allowing time for the situation in that country to stabilize.”The second legs will be played as planned, with Tijuana hosting Motagua on Feb. 27 at Estadio Caliente and the Red Bulls hosting Olimpia on March 1 at Red Bull Arena.This is the first edition of the CCL that will be played under the new format, with the tournament no longer having a group stage and taking place from late February to late April.last_img read more
