Analysis: Bayern's ongoing unrest endangers international goals******
By Oliver Trust。
BERLIN, Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- Ahead of its Champions League encounter against Benfica, Bayern Munich is suffering from ongoing unrest in the club.。
The team might have delivered a satisfying answer in the league beating Union Berlin 5-2 after the devastating defeat in the German Cup in Monchengladbach. But in-house tensions keep coach Julian Nagelsmann and chairman Oliver Kahn busy.。
The team is struggling to regain game dominance over 90 minutes while sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic faces growing doubts regarding the efficiency of his work.。
Debates about Lucas Hernandez and Joshua Kimmich give evidence of how fragile the club's atmosphere is.。
The French international narrowly escaped from a prison sentence due to a case of domestic violence in 2019. Kimmich's refusal to get vaccinated for COVID-19 entails controversial discussions in the club and the German public.。
It has become apparent; Bayern isn't invulnerable despite an impressive season start turning the side into one of the favorites of this season's Champions League campaign.。
The two-week-long quarantine of fully vaccinated coach Nagelsmann after a positive COVID-test seems to have thrown the team off course. The 34-year-old is expected to return for full duty by this Tuesday in time for the Champions League group game against Benfica.。
In addition, Kahn's restructuring measures in the club's leadership board are causing turbulence regarding the Bavarian's internal balance.。
After the dismissal of Jorg Wacker, responsible for international issues, media reports talk of Salihamidzic seems caught in the crossfire of criticism.。
Reports speak of Kahn being unsatisfied with the sporting director's transfer record as nine players left for 160 million over the past four years despite their market value of 230 million.。
Kahn is concerned about the club's financial future having to compete in an overheated market.。
Salihamidzic valuation might depend on the outcome of the race for Barcelona full-back Sergino Dest and the negotiations with French 2018 world champion Kingsley Coman about a contract extension.。
Nagelsmann faces the challenge of reinstalling his team's confidence. Following the historic 5-0 Cup defeat, the league game in Berlin revealed Bayern hasn't yet overcome the effects of the humiliation.。
"We might be in a good mood after the victory in Berlin, but we are still out of a competition that was important to us," star striker Thomas Muller said. "We are not back to good now."
Nagelsmann seems aware, the way back to happiness might turn into a bumpy road. The 34-year-old admitted he now has to provide solutions for his players and adjust the team's game approach.。
Bayern fans might have to live with a less spectacular style in many games. The sportive turbulences are proofing, well-oiled teams are well-advised to budgeting their resources in their attempt to reach their target finish.。
Bayern might reduce its efforts and count on pragmatism until crunch time in the Champions League is starting next spring. Nagelsmann said he is aware to survive as Bayern's coach, it needs silverware to please the club's leaders. Enditem。
Liu four strokes clear at Shanghai LPGA tour stop******
SHANGHAI, Oct. 30 (Xinhua) -- Liu Wenbo put herself in full control of the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Championship on Saturday as the China LPGA Order of Merit leader carded a three-under 69 to open up a four-stroke lead through three rounds of the RMB 1 million championship.
The 20-year-old Beijinger was seven-under 209 after 54 holes at Lanhai International Golf Club on Chongming Island. Zeng Liqi, a 15-year-old amateur, was second after shooting an even-par 72 over the Yangtze Dunes layout, one stroke ahead of Shi Yuli (71). Sui Xiang (72), the first-round leader, was a distant fourth at six strokes back.
Starting the day with a one-shot lead, Liu got to work early in pursuit of her third CLPGA Tour title when she made a birdie at the 408-yard second. She picked up another birdie at the seventh hole before dropping her only stroke of the round at the 142-yard 14th where her tee shot found a bunker. Two more birdies would follow at the 15th and 17th holes.
"It's a satisfying score, an 80 out of 100. I missed some birdie chances, but I had two impressive scramble shots from the rough on the back nine. It's a round without any big mistakes," said Liu who won her first CLPGA Tour title in 2017 when she captured the Zhangjiagang Shuangshan Challenge as a 16-year-old amateur.
"The rough is very tricky here. The past two days I was fortunate to hit my ball to those easier spots around the rough where you could recover. If your ball is deep into the rough you could face a penalty or a lost ball. A four-shot lead isn't so large for this course. As I said, there could be many troubles tomorrow. You need to avoid them and play another solid round."
Zeng demonstrated why she is 79th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking when the Nanchang native reeled off three consecutive birdies starting at the seventh hole to sit one stroke back of playing partner Liu through nine holes. The teenager, however, could not capitalize on her momentum and had three bogeys over the next six holes. She picked up another birdie at the 467-yard, par-five 17th hole.
"I played well on the front nine and had three birdies in a row, but we were slow for some reason around the turn. The referee asked us to speed up and timed us. After that I could not find my right rhythm," said the teenager.
"The four-shot lead (by Liu) is big but I will try to ignore that and play my game."
Shi, a 19-year-old pro from Beijing, carded three late birdies starting at the 14th hole but couldn't draw even with Zeng when she stumbled to a bogey five on the final hole.
"I drove into the rough at the last hole, unexpectedly, and I thought that I could easily hit over that area. My tee shots were a little worse than yesterday but on the whole, it was another solid day out there."

U.S. beat Mexico to go top of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying******
CINCINNATI, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie scored late as the United States rose to the top of the North, Central American and Caribbean (CONCACAF) zone World Cup qualifying standings with a 2-0 home win over Mexico on Friday.。
Mexico began brightly and the U.S. had Zack Steffen to thank for not conceding an early goal as the Manchester City goalkeeper made several fine saves.。
But the U.S. regrouped after halftime and Pulisic broke the visitors' resistance in the 74th minute when he headed home following a Timothy Weah cross from the right flank.。
McKennie doubled the lead 11 minutes later when he swept home an angled finish after the ball rebounded off a Mexico defender's leg and fell fortuitously into his path.。
The hosts finished the match with just 10 men after central defender Miles Robinson was sent off for a second booking in the 89th minute.。
The result means the U.S. are now top of the standings in the final round of CONCACAF qualifying with 14 points from seven games, ahead of Mexico on goal difference.。
In other matches on Friday, Jamaica drew 1-1 away to El Salvador, Canada won 1-0 at home to Costa Rica and Honduras fell to a 3-2 home defeat to Panama. Enditem。
