Galatasaray 3-2 Real Madrid (Agg 3-5)

first_imgReal Madrid were made to sweat in Istanbul but held on for a 3-2 defeat away to Galatasaray, a result which nevertheless assured their passage into the last four of the Champions League with a 5-3 victory on aggregate.The Spanish side looked set to cruise through when Cristiano Ronaldo opened up a four-goal aggregate lead in the opening minutes, but a timid response by the visitors encouraged the Turkish giants to chase the impossible, which they almost achieved as Emmanuel Eboue, Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba hit in the second half. Ronaldo finally ended their hopes with a late goal that sealed victory.Virtually assured of a place in the Champions League semi-finals thanks to a dominant 3-0 win in the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid nevertheless began the second leg in belligerent fashion, pushing forward immediately in search of a goal.Angel Di Maria was almost the man to provide it in the first minute of play, picking up a loose ball after Fernando Muslera’s rushed clearance outside the area. The Argentine went for the net, but with Galatasaray defenders scampering back he saw the effort fall just the wrong side of the post.Away fans, however, did not have to wait long, as after just seven minutes of play the Merengue got the strike that would surely put the tie beyond the faintest of doubts. An overlapping Sami Khedira streaked past on the right-hand side, and put a teasing ball into the middle. As the Turkish backline failed to react, Cristiano Ronaldo was on hand to tap home, recording his 49th Champions League goal and drawing level with the legendary Alfredo Di Stefano in the historical charts.Despite that early blow, Galatasaray held their heads high, dominating possession against Jose Mourinho’s men and attempting to match their rivals. Didier Drogba was the target of much of the Turks’ attacking play, but was let down by poor service and his own fading reflexes, and struggled to make an impact. Madrid sat back and were content to allow their opponents to do the running, while on the counter-attack they remained a frightening force. This potency on the break was demonstrated when Di Maria went within a hair’s breadth of adding a second. The midfielder latched to a wonderful flick from Ronaldo to break free on the left, and looked destined to put his name on the board. He did not count on the heroics of Muslera, however. The goalkeeper pulled off a breathtaking fingertip save to keep Angel out, and ensure that the gap would not widen as the two sides went in for the break.The Turkish side continued their unlikely pursuit in the second half, and were rewarded with their first goal of the tie 57 minutes in – and it was one worth waiting for. A speculative ball across the Madrid area was not picked up by anyone, which allowed Emmanuel Eboue to meet it just on the edge of the area. The right-back had been disappointing during the opening hour, but atoned with a stunning power shot which left Lopez no chance to save, and put Galatasaray on the board.The hosts were now buoyant, and could have reduced the deficit to ‘just’ three goals if Sneijder had converted a golden chance. The Netherlands star found himself in the right place at the back post after a low cross was deflected into his path but, gloriously unmarked, he fluffed a left-footed shot to save Madrid from falling behind on the night. The midfielder was not done, however, cutting inside his marker from deep, Sneijder went to to release a bullet of a shot that put his side ahead, at least for the second leg.The Turkish crowd, from a position of despair, could not believe their eyes. Drogba set up an unthinkable last 20 minutes with a wonderful backheel into the net, putting Galatasaray 3-1 up and leaving just two goals for the comeback.And Drogba thought he had levelled the tie before being pulled back for an offside and Madrid lived to breathe another day, Ronaldo confirming their passage with a strong finish in the final minute. The Merengue join Borussia Dortmund in the penultimate stage of the competition with Juventus, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain fighting to claim the final two spots on Wednesday evening.last_img read more

Day trips spikes Geelong visitor spending

first_imgGeelong received up to four million day trippers last financial year, making more than $670 million in tourist spending. According to Federal Government figures released late last month, during the 2009/10 period 3.9 million visitors were recorded to have spent the day in the region, spending the majority of their cash on food and drink, The Geelong Advertiser reported. $221 million of tourism spending was made on food and drink purchases while up to $93 million was used on shopping. Geelong Otway tourism chief executive Roger Grant was pleased with the year’s results and said it proved the area’s popularity as a tourist destination. Mr Grant added that while the majority was made up of day tourists, the expenditure they brought with them was “far bigger than people often give credit for”.”We tend to think ‘there were a lot of tourists down here for Audi Week’ or … at the National Celtic Festival, but it’s so much more than that.””Tourism is defined not by the activity, but by the postcode of the person doing the activity,” he said.According to the figures Geelong received up to $61 million in international spending, with the majority coming from visitors from the UK, New Zealand and the US.
