In a few hours, the who’s and who that make it to the Semi Finals of the 2018/2019 Uefa Champions League would be decided. Liverpool’s defender Virgil Van Dijk during a media chat, said his team would hopefully get a win ahead of the second leg against Porto although care is being taken in the team’s approach to the Premier League with the knowledge that any slip-up could terminate their title dreams.
“We should play with freedom otherwise we can’t show our qualities properly. But I don’t think there’s room for slip-ups in the Champions League either. “Hopefully (it is our time). Hopefully it can be great at the end of the season.”
Porto on paper look like the underdogs, having less materials compared to the present Liverpool team that’s topping the EPL table. These were the same thought patterns prior to Porto’s encounter with AS Roma as well as the Ajax team that was also written off before they played against perceived superior team, Real Madrid at the round of 16 stage.
Another UCL match scheduled for tomorrow is the quarter finals match between Tottenham who would be welcoming Manchester City to their homeground which is now a stadium worthy of note.
Manchester City coach while fielding questions from newsmen expressed joy at the possibility of having Sergio Aguero in the match against Tottenham and also commented on their approach, saying “We have to handle these situations if we don’t that’s because we are not prepared to go through.”
“It affects the fans. It does not have an effect on the pitch. It is Tottenham’s second game (in their new ground) we know what we are going to face, it is up to us how we handle it”
Alan Shearer further revealed that the only possible problem the entire English teams could face in the semi finals was Lionel Messi.
However dear fans, we leave the analyses till after tomorrow’s matches as we gather to see how many of our premier league teams are left.
Facebook suspends thousands of apps in response to Cambridge Analytica row
Facebook Inc said, it has suspended tens of thousands of apps on the social networking platform, as part of the company’s ongoing app developer investigation it began in March 2018 in response to the Cambridge Analytica row.
The suspended apps are associated with about 400 developers, Facebook said, adding that it is not necessarily an indication that these apps were posing a threat to users.
Earlier this year, the company agreed to pay a record-breaking $5 billion fine to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to resolve a government probe into its privacy practices.
The FTC privacy probe was triggered last year by allegations that Facebook violated a 2012 consent decree and inappropriately shared information of 87 million users with British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook has since agreed to boost safeguards on user data and has put curbs on the amount of information that third-party developers can request from platform users.
“… We’re making progress. We won’t catch everything, and some of what we do catch will be with help from others outside Facebook,” the company said in a blogpost.
