Zurich and Lugano's incredible week


FC Zurich and Lugano face relegation and Swiss cup final in same week

Ancillo Canepa
Zurich president Ancillo Canepa has a tough week ahead.

It is a very strange week for FC Zurich and FC Lugano, the two clubs at the bottom of the Swiss Super League. Their fate in the top flight is to be decided on Wednesday -- one will go down, while the other will be saved -- but they will then play each other in the Swiss Cup final on Sunday.

Lugano, with a one-point advantage in the table, know that everything is in their hands and need to beat St Gallen at home; Zurich are just hoping for their rivals to slip up as they host Vaduz.

This weekend,...

Mamelodi Sundowns benefit from CAF's repeated oversights

Can Mamelodi Sundowns make the most of their second chance and win the African Champions League?

On Tuesday, 34 days after they were eliminated from the African Champions League, big-spending South African club Mamelodi Sundowns were reinstated.

That such a turnaround came to pass is due to the most extraordinary stroke of good fortune, although how the error which led to it was spotted only at this late hour must be of concern and acute embarrassment to the Confederation of African Football.

Sundowns' reprieve came after the disqualification of AS Vita Club from the Democratic Republic of...

Braga end half a century of suffering to lift Portuguese Cup with Porto win

Some things only happen every 50 years. In a remarkable coincidence, Sporting Braga lifted their second Portuguese Cup exactly half a century after the first triumph, at the very same venue. Led by magnificently named Rui Sim-Sim, Braga beat Vitoria Setubal 1-0 at Estadio Nacional on May 22, 1966. They returned on May 22, 2016 to do it again in a thriller, overcoming FC Porto on penalties following a pulsating and unpredictable 2-2 draw.

It was a moment to savour, especially for new Portugal president...

Bundesliga still leads the way as new clubs emerge from Eastern Germany

Christian Seifert has long been bullish about the Bundesliga's quality. Things might dip in 2016-17.

Two years ago, the German Football League (DFL) launched an English language publication called "Bundesliga: The Magazine." In his first editorial, DFL chairman Christian Seifert explained that this step had been taken "in recognition of the increasing popularity internationally" before listing "many good reasons to get enthralled by the Bundesliga." Because the national team had just won the World Cup, Seifert drew attention to the many young and exciting active players in the league. He also...

Hero worship of Jurgen Klopp does him -- and Liverpool -- a disservice

Kenny Dalglish says everyone at Liverpool is behind Jurgen Klopp, despite Liverpool's two losses in cup finals this season.

It might be time to revive "Being Liverpool." The much-derided behind-the-scenes-at-Anfield television series was conceived and created four years ago, the last time Liverpool reached two cup finals. It failed because the central character, Brendan Rodgers, came across as a smug spouter of clichés and management-speak. His sidekick, the risible managing director Ian Ayre, posed on a motorbike. It was the wrong vehicle: This was car-crash TV.

There is a genuine superstar at Anfield now. Jurgen...
