With Racing, France beats England – Rugby


With no "Crunch" at the last World Cup, French and English fought indirectly this weekend for the first day of the Champions Cup. Racing 92, winner Sunday of Saracens (30-10), defending champion, gave an honorary victory to tricolor rugby.

French clubs have won three successes over the five confrontations scheduled this weekend with their English counterparts. After the defeats at La Rochelle and LOU, respectively in front of Exeter at home (12-31) and Northampton (25-14), and the successes of Stade Toulousain (25-20 at Gloucester) and Clermont (against Harlequins, 53-21), it was up to Racing 92 to change this duel in the tricolor camp. Mission accomplished with the offensive bonus.

The club Hauts-de-Seine has concluded in style this first day of the Champions Cup 2019-2020, by offering the defending champion, the Saracens, 30-10, Sunday at home. Tests of Vakatawa (9th), Thomas (25th), Russell (53rd) and Lauret (64th) were right of the English who had recovered hope with the test recorded by Lozowski (18-10, 51st). We will remember for the beauty of the gesture that of Finn Russell in favor of Racingmen. The Scottish opener used a "chistera" and two feints in the same action, the second to flatten without opposition (25-10 with the transformation of Machenaud, 54th).

If the Saracens had appeared diminished on the synthetic Paris La Defense Arena (nine major players absent including seven belonging to the finalist group of the last World Cup), the success of men Laurent Travers is not to be minimized. The Racingmen take the lead of Pool 4 before challenging the province of Munster next Saturday for the second day. It will undoubtedly be another opposition. Much more consistent.

Venice has closed St Mark's Square in the city suffered a third major flooding in a week, while the rest of Italy and warnings were issued in Florence and Pisa.

Venice was hit with an "acqua alta", or high water, of 150cm (5ft) on Sunday, lower than Tuesday's 187cm – the highest level in a century – but still dangerous.

"Maximum attention for today's tide," Luigi Brugnaro, who is one of the most influential people in the world.

"St Mark's Square is closed. Safety first, "he said to the sea to begin with.

With four tides above 140cm since Monday, this is the worst week for high tides in Venice since 1872 when official statistics were first produced.

Enrico Rossi, President of the South, has been published on the subject of "flood wave" on the Arno and said boards have been installed on the swollen river banks in Pisa "a precautionary measure".

The major tourist site had already been submerged by sea surges.

Churches, shops and homes have also been inundated in the city, a Unesco world heritage site.

A massive infrastructure project called Moss has been broken into, but the scandals and delays.

"We were not expecting the high waters to be so exceptionally high," said Guido Fulgenzi, who was planning to open his cafe on St Mark's Square this week.

"We're paying the prices [for the Mose project not being completed]"He said, sloshing around in his flooded kitchen and pointing to Tuesday's high-water mark on the wall.

The crisis has prompted the government to € 20m (£ 17m) in funds to tackle the devastation.

The culture minister, Dario Franceschini, has warned the task of repairing the city, will be huge.

Residents whose houses are eligible for up to € 5,000 in euros, can buy up to € 20,000 and apply for more later.

Most of the city's cash machines have been made more difficult for tourists and tourists.

Older residents who remember the infamous acqua alta of 1966, when the water rose to a level of 1.94m, say they have not seen such frequent flooding before.

Hotels, London, United States, after the spread of Venice underwater.

Tuesday's high water submerged around 80% of the city, officials said.

Many, including Venice's mayor, have blamed the disaster on global warming and warned that the country's prone to natural disasters must wake up to the risks posed by ever more volatile seasons.

Kosovo has now surpassed all expectations and secured a place in the playoffs to maintain its hopes of reaching the first major national tournament. However, a 2-1 defeat by the Czech Republic means they can not finish second after defeating England today. Follow the live coverage below:

63 minutes: chances for England! Rashford and Chilwell unite on the left to bring the defender into the box and Chilwell drops a shot.

Kosovo 0 – 0 England

Team News

Raheem Sterling returns to the England squad for this game after not playing Montenegro after Thursday's incident with Joe Gomez.

Gomez and Liverpool team-mate Jordan Henderson have both withdrawn from the squad for this game, and Gareth Southgate could experiment as the qualification is already secured, pushing a number of fringe players to the start.


  • Kosovo 7/1
  • Draw 4/1
  • England 4/11


Kosovo really wants to bring the game to England, as was the case in September in Southampton, when Gareth Southgate got into trouble.

Since both teams in Group A are safe, it could be entertaining in Pristina. 3-2 to England is our prediction.
