Udinese holds Juve to 1-1 draw
MILAN---There is still a glimmer of
hope for Roma and Napoli.
Juventus was prevented from going
10 points clear in Serie A as a lethargic
performance saw the leaders held 1-1
at Udinese yesterday. It was Juve's first
draw in the league this season.
Leonardo Bonucci was both hero and
villain as he was outmuscled for Duvan
Zapata's opener but leveled on the hour.
Juventus is eight points clear of sec-
ond-placed Roma and 10 ahead of Na-
poli with 11 rounds remaining.
After Napoli won 2-1 at Roma on
Saturday, Juventus knew it could take
a big step toward an unprecedented
sixth successive title.
Udinese had picked up only one point
from its previous four matches, scoring
just one goal.
But it took the lead eight minutes
from halftime as Zapata held off Bo-
nucci and beat Gianluigi Buffon at the
Juventus struggled to create real op-
portunities but leveled when Bonucci
headed in Paulo Dybala's free kick.
Udinese coach Luigi Delneri was dis-
missed immediately after for dissent.
The home side almost restored its
lead two minutes later but Danilo's
header came off the base of the left
post, although it looked as if Buffon
had it covered. (AP)
Atletico Madrid whips Valencia 3-0
MADRID---With veteran striker
Fernando Torres watching his team
play just three days after collapsing
on the field, Atletico Madrid com-

each half and Kevin Gameiro added
another as Atletico rebounded from
two winless games and again moved
into position to fight for a Champions
It was Atletico's first game since Tor-
res dropped to the ground unconscious
after a collision with an opponent late
in the match at Deportivo La Coruna
Torres was motionless for several
moments at the Riazor Stadium in La
Coruna. The 32-year-old forward was
immediately hospitalised, but escaped
any serious head or spine injuries and
was released a day later.
Torres, who won two European
Championships and one World Cup
with Spain, is expected to be cleared
to return to training this week.
Griezmann scored in the 10th and
83rd minutes, while Gameiro got on
the board in the 48th.
Atletico was coming off a 2-1 home
loss to Barcelona and a 1-1 draw at De-
portivo, results that virtually ended the
team's title chances. It trails leader Bar-
celona by 11 points after 26 matches,
but it cut the gap to third-placed Sevilla
to six points. Sevilla plays at Alaves on

Spurs, City win to stay
in EPL chasing pack
LONDON---In Chelsea's slip-
stream, Tottenham and Man-
chester City are amassing
points and hoping the Pre-
mier League leaders collapse.
Harry Kane's double gave
Tottenham a 3-2 victory over
Everton to go seven points be-
hind Chelsea yesterday, while
third-placed Manchester City
is a point further back after
sweeping to a 2-0 victory at
City's players, who have 12
games to overturn Chelsea's
eight-point advantage over
them, know all about throwing
away a lead. Pep Guardiola's side
was eight points ahead of Chel-
sea six games into the season
before the tables were turned.
Now, according to Guardiola,
Chelsea is "almost unstoppable."
"It's a pity that the distance
between Chelsea is so big, but
that's true," Guardiola said. "We
started the season with 10 games
winning (in a row), but our game
was not like today.
"I feel we are playing quite
well and that's why we are get-

Frankfurt to 4th
BERLIN---Eintracht Frankfurt's hopes of European
football took a knock Sunday in a 2-1 defeat at
home to Freiburg, the club's fourth straight Bun-
Two goals from Florian Niederlechner propelled Frei-
burg to eighth and left Frankfurt vulnerable in sixth place
with 11 games remaining. Frankfurt was third after the
19th round before its losing streak began.
Branimir Hrgota fired the home side into an early lead,
but Niederlechner rounded the goalkeeper to equalize.
Ante Rebbe thought he'd put Frankfurt ahead again.
However, the goal was ruled out with Mijat Gacinovic
adjudged to have impeded goalkeeper Alexander
Frankfurt was to rue the decision when Niederlechner
scored again before the hour-mark thanks to brilliant
interplay between Vincenzo Grifo and Mike Frantz. TV
replays suggested he was offside for Grifo's through ball.
Substitute Alexander Meier might have equalised as
Frankfurt pushed hard late on only to be denied by a
fine stop from Schwolow.
Albin Ekdal's late strike was enough for Hamburg to
boost its chances of avoiding the drop with its sixth win
of the season, beating Hertha Berlin, 1-0.
Aaron Hunt crossed for Ekdal to claim the winner
with more than ten minutes remaining as Hamburg
stayed in the relegation zone but moved level on points
with 15th-placed Wolfsburg. (AP)
