1. Lakshya won the Bulgaria Open International Series title.

Lakshya Sen on Thursday clinched the Bulgaria Open International Series title after notching up a hard-fought win over Croatia’s Zvonimir Durkinjak in the men’s singles final in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The Uttarakhand shuttler, who celebrated his 16th birthday on Wednesday, defeated second seed Zvonimir 18-21, 21-12, 21-17 in a 57-minute match. He had beaten Sri Lanka’s Dinuka Karunaratna 21-19, 21-14 in the semi-finals yesterday.

World Junior No 1 was recently sent to train under former All England champion Peter Gade, who is currently the head coach of French national team.Lakshya had earlier reached the finals of Senior National championship in February.

“It is a creditable achievement for Lakshya. He is still a junior but he has been able to win tournaments and that is a good sign. We had sent five players on a 10-day training trip with the French national team. He trained under the great Peter Gade and it has benefitted him,” coach Vimal Kumar told PTI.

“He had a good tournament. He beat the top seed Sam Parsons in the first round. He won the junior National and also was finalist at Senior Nationals this year and it gave him a lot of confidence to beat top players like HS Prannoy. So I feel if groomed properly, he does have a great future,” Kumar said.

Asked what are the upcoming tourneys that Lakshya would be playing, Vimal said: “He is concentrating on his strength. We have former national champion Sayali Gokhale attached to him and she travels with him.

“In two months time, he will be playing Vietnam Grand Prix and then it would be junior World championship,” he added.Last year, the Indian had won the India International Series and clinched a bronze at the CPB Badminton and Sports Science Training Center in Thailand.
 
2. Real Madrid won Spanish Super Cup.
Real Madrid won Spanish Super Cup 
Real Madrid beat Barcelona, 2-0, to complete a 5-1 victory on aggregate in the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday, dominating its fiercest rival without the need of Cristiano Ronaldo or Gareth Bale. Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema provided the goals in the second leg for a home side that showed confidence that Barcelona sorely lacked.

While Bale was rested, Ronaldo watched the game from the Santiago Bernabéu stands as he completed the first game of a five-match ban for pushing the referee who sent him off in Sunday’s 3-1 first-leg win.

Asensio filled in perfectly for Madrid’s star, scoring five minutes into the match for his second goal in the season’s curtain raiser. Benzema added a goal in the 39th.

Barcelona struggled to score for a second match since the stunning departure of Neymar on a world-record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. The closest it came was when Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez hit the woodwork in the second half.

Ronaldo bitterly criticized his suspension, describing the ban as “persecution.” Ronaldo wrote on his Instagram account Wednesday that “it is impossible to remain silent in this situation, 5 games!! It seems exaggerated and ridiculous to me, this is called persecution!”Ronaldo will also miss the first four matches of the Spanish league, which Madrid opens Sunday at Deportivo La Coruña.

NAPOLI WINS CHAMPIONS FIRST LEG Dries Mertens started this season where he left off the last, setting Napoli on its way to a 2-0 win over nine-man Nice in the first leg of their Champions League playoff in Naples. Mertens scored more than 30 goals last season for Napoli, with five of them in the Champions League. It took him less than 13 minutes to score in this game.

In other first-leg results, Celtic beat Astana, 5-0, while Sevilla won, 2-1, in Turkey against the Champions League newcomers Istanbul Basaksehir. Olympiakos and Hapoel Beer-Sheva both came from behind to win 2-1, against Rijeka and Maribor.
