Bayern fans scuffle leads to arrests, leaves many injured

Published by:


Fans were made to wait before the game.

Impatient Bayern Munich fans allegedly left many injured, some seriously when they attempted to storm Schalke’s stadium on Saturday.

The scuffle, branded as an “extremely violent attack” by police took place as access to the stadium had been severely delayed because of body searches at the gates in the aftermath of last week’s attack on the Stade de France in Paris.

Fans had been advised to arrive earlier for the game because of the increased measures.

Gelsenkirchen police say in a statement “only a swift and consequent intervention by police forces prevented worse. Several dozen from this violent group of people are being held.”

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says the club distances itself “in every form from these so-called supporters of our club.”

Rummenigge adds “violence cannot and should not ever be tolerated. It’s absolutely inexplicable to me and to all of us how someone, especially now after the terrible events in Paris, can be so lacking in respect for society and football.”

Rummenigge also apologised to Schalke and the victims.

Bayern Munich defeated Schalke 3-1 during their visit on Sunday as they progressed unchallenged on top of the Bundesliga.

Supporters of second-division Bochum were also involved in the rioting, police said.

OG emerge victorious at Frankfurt Major

Team OG defeats Secret 3-1 to clinch the Frankfurt Major title.

It was a surprising result as OG defeated Secret 3-1 to win the Frankfurt Major Title.

Europe’s two best teams proved to be the most aggressive squads in Dota and there were fireworks immediately as the game started.

It was not into their fourth game while leading 2-1 that OG received much relief in what was a dream draft, getting a lot of comfort heroes that added some team-fight potential and a way to mitigate some of the things Secret were bringing to the table.

In what was one of the larger tournaments of this year, many doubted OG’s chances after the newly formed team was sent to the lower bracket of their first major tournament by Vega Squadron.

Rising from the grave, the team had went through a seemingly impossible road starting in the Lower Bracket and going through all the way to the Grand Finals.

On their way to victory they took down Fnatic, Mineski, Virtus Pro, CDEC Gaming, EHOME and Evil Geniuses.

This first major title will put OG at least on rank 18 in the December World Ranking, but they can improve a lot with a good performance at the ASUS ROG Dreamleague next weekend.

Djokovic wins record fourth consecutive ATP World Tour Title

Published by:


Djokovic was beaten by Federer earlier in the week made a comeback and won in straight sets.

Novak Djokovic proves once again that he is the best by clinching a record fourth successive ATP World Tour title as a season ending trophy.

The world number one responded to a defeat by Roger Federer earlier in the week by beating the six-time world champion 6-3, 6-4 within 80 minutes.

“I am enjoying every moment on the court, I cherish every moment after dreaming of it as a kid,” he said.

He will end his season with a remarkable 11 titles including three Grand Slams, taking his total to 10 majors.

The 28-year-old has now won the season finale five times and surpasses Ivan Lendl’s 1987 achievement, when he won his third straight Tour Finals title in New York.

Also, aside from the trophy, another 1,300 ranking points and a cheque for £1.4m, Djokovic also draws level with Federer at 22-22 in career meetings.

Federer said: “It is never fun on the not winning side, but it is better than not playing at all like last year. This week was great, there were some crazy points tonight, but like plenty of times this year Novak deserved it.”

Federer defeated Djokovic indoors for the first time since 2012 on Tuesday, but the latter responded in simply irresistible style as he dispatched first Rafael Nadal and then, in the final, Federer.

It ended with a double fault as even the 17-time Grand Slam champion wilted under the pressure of such relentless accuracy from his opponent.

The pair have shared 11 of the last 13 season-ending titles between them, but it is the Serb who now dominates.
