Report: Anderlecht 1 Bayern 2

first_imgAnderlecht 1 Bayern Munich 2: Lewandowski and Tolisso give visitors win Omnisport Last updated 1 year ago 05:47 11/23/17 Robert Lewandowski Cropped Getty Images Robert Lewandowski and Corentin Tolisso scored to give Jupp Heynckes’ side all three points against Anderlecht in the Champions League. Goals from Robert Lewandowski and Corentin Tolisso were enough to give a below-par Bayern Munich a 2-1 win over Anderlecht in the Champions League on Wednesday.The hosts had the better of the chances at the Constant Vanden Stockstadion, but their first goal in the competition this season would ultimately count for little.Sofiane Hanni cancelled out Lewandowski’s well-worked opener, but Anderlecht could not keep the pressure on and Tolisso turned from provider to scorer as he netted a 77th-minute winner.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Bayern lost Thiago Alcantara and Arjen Robben to injury, with Arturo Vidal grimacing as he was withdrawn late on, but Jupp Heynckes’ men retain a slim hope of topping Group B on the final matchday.The Bundesliga champions must beat Unai Emery’s goal-crazy side, who thrashed Celtic 7-1 elsewhere in the group, by more than three goals if they are to usurp the French superstars.Anderlecht, meanwhile, are still without a point in this year’s tournament and will take on Celtic in Glasgow needing a big win to secure third place and a Europa League spot.4 – For the 1st time Sven #Ulreich (@FCBayernEN) saved 4 shots in the first half in the @ChampionsLeague. Support.@FCBayernUS #RSCFCB— OptaFranz (@OptaFranz) November 22, 2017The hosts left top scorer Henry Onyekuru on the bench but had the better of the first half and will have been frustrated not to have been ahead at the interval against a disjointed Bayern.Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich was forced into action after just eight minutes, blocking Lukasz Teodorczyk’s shot and then saving comfortably from Hanni on the follow-up.Dennis Appiah then tested Ulreich at his near post with a well-struck effort before Anderlecht’s best chance of the first half arrived in the 30th minute. Teodorczyk was found completely unmarked and with only the goalkeeper to beat but could only scuff his shot wide.Teodorczyk had another opportunity at the end of the half, after more poor defending, but again he could not beat Ulreich before Bayern survived a late penalty shout after Pieter Gerkens went down under pressure from Niklas Sule.Heynckes sent on James Rodriguez after Thiago was hurt in a seemingly innocuous challenge and the coach was also forced into another change as Robben had to be replaced by Javi Martinez shortly after the break.50 – @Javi8martinez makes his 50th competitive appearance under Jupp #Heynckes for @FCBayernEN. Rotor.@FCBayernUS #RSCAFCB— OptaFranz (@OptaFranz) November 22, 2017The visitors suddenly looked a different side, though, and went ahead on 51 minutes, James finding Tolisso who squared for Lewandowski to tap home.Yet Anderlecht continued to press and levelled just after the hour mark, Teodorczyk heading on for Hanni to slot home from close range, Anderlecht’s first Champions League goal this season.Bayern had a good chance to restore their lead, Matz Sels blocking Lewandowski but Teodorczyk also curled one just wide in an evenly contested second half.The hosts also sent on Onyekuru as they searched for the second goal but it was Bayern who had the extra quality in attack when it mattered.With a little over 10 minutes to go, Joshua Kimmich raced down the right and crossed for Tolisso who headed past a helpless Sels to make it 2-1 and hand Bayern all three points. read morelast_img read more

Family of deceased Indigenous woman suing Toronto police for 14 million

first_imgAPTN National NewsThe family of an Indigenous woman that died in Toronto under suspicious circumstances is suing Toronto police for $14 million alleging the force was negligent in the events leading up to her death in April 2013 and during the subsequent police investigation that labeled it a suicide.Cheyenne Fox’s family alleges Toronto police didn’t properly respond to two 911 calls prior to Fox’s death April 25, 2013 when she fell to her death from a 24th floor balcony of a Toronto condo according to a statement of claim filed in Peterborough court Friday and obtained by APTN National News.None of the allegations have been proven in court and all defendants, including Toronto police, are expected to be served Monday.Fox died at about 11 p.m. that night, but the first 911 call came in at approximately 6 p.m. from someone who witnessed Fox jump from a moving taxicab on Highway 401.It’s alleged she lept from the “still moving” cab because the driver was sexually assaulting her.Two people stopped and picked her up on the side of the highway.The document states they drove Fox to her destination at 80 Harrison Garden Blvd. to meet an alleged “custumer” as she was working as a sex worker, potentially forced into it by a human trafficking ring.The second 911 call came about two hours later at 8 p.m. from someone inside condo unit 2419 at 80 Harrison Garden Blvd., the document alleges.The claim alleges someone from the unit called police upon Fox’s arrival claiming she was intoxicated, trespassing and refusing to leave the place.“No response from the Toronto Police Service Board ever came in respect of the two 911 calls that were made by third parties in relation to Cheyenne and the serious danger or harm that she was reported to be in,” alleges the statement of claim.It’s then alleged she tried to “escape” the home, but someone “physically forced Cheyenne to remain at his property.”The pair started drinking, according to the document.A third call to 911 was placed at 11 p.m. due to an alleged fight between Fox and the occupant.The caller said Fox had jumped over the balcony.Police arrived minutes later to “collect the badly beaten and lifeless body of Cheyenne.”Fox’s family say Toronto police also failed to provide “adequate or effective” reports or effectively communicate with the family after the death.The family alleges police failed, as well, in considering Fox “was murdered.”Last fall, the family said police told them the case was closed and Fox’s death was determined to be suicide.“(Police) blamed Cheyenne for her death attributing ‘risky’ behavior and a ‘high risk lifestyle’ instead of engaging an adequate or effective policing strategy to protect vulnerable women,” the document alleges.Fox’s father John Fox is scheduled to hold a press conference Monday at 2 p.m. in front of police headquarters in downtown Toronto.Attempts to reach Toronto police Saturday were unsuccessful.Kjackson@aptn.calast_img read more
