Match Preview Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus 2018-19Juventus look unbeatable in Italy and have started 2019 in the fashion you come to expect from the Italian champions.The Old Lady are still unbeaten after 21 games in Serie A and they haven’t lost in the Coppa Italia since Roma defeated them at the quarter-final stage in the 2013-14 season.Atalanta have become known as one of Italy’s European challengers in recent seasons and are chasing a Champions League spot once again, as they sit three points behind AC Milan in the race for fourth place.For all of Atalanta’s recent success, they have not lifted any silverware since 1963 after being knocked out by Juventus at the semi-final stage in this competition last season.Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri knows this won’t be an easy test.“There will be no second chances – we need to produce a big performance,” he said.“It won’t be easy. Atalanta have scored more goals than anyone else in Serie A this season and they fought back against Roma on Sunday, creating lots of chances.“Physically, they’re one of the few sides that can match us – but they do give you chances. In these one-off games, the winner is the team that makes the fewest mistakes. We need to take advantage of their weaknesses.”Record signing Cristiano Ronaldo netted again at the weekend taking his tally up to 16 for the season but the Portuguese superstar is yet to find the net in the Coppa Italia for his new club.Atalanta held Juventus to a draw on Boxing Day, with Allegri’s side reduced to 10 men after Rodrigo Bentancur was sent off, and the hosts will be hoping to go one better to end their opponents’ monopoly of the Coppa Italia.last_img read more

Venezuelas Guaidó accused of coup attempt by government

Venezuelan authorities say they are putting down a small coup attempt after opposition leader Juan Guaidó announced he was in the “final phase” of ending President Nicolás Maduro’s rule.He appeared in a video with uniformed men, saying he had military support. Guaidó, who declared himself interim president in January, called for more members of the military to help him end Maduro’s “usurpation” of power.But military leaders appeared to be standing behind Mr Maduro. Venezuela’s defence minister appeared on television to stress the point. However, photos from Caracas show some soldiers aligning themselves with Guaidó’s supporters.Maduro’s detractors hope the military will change its allegiance as resentment grows following years of hyperinflation, power cuts, food and medicine shortages.So far, they have stood by Maduro – despite dozens of countries, including the UK, the US and most of Latin America, recognising Guaidó as Venezuela’s rightful leader.Protesters supporting both sides have gathered at different points in the capital, Caracas.There are running clashes between Guaidó’s supporters and armed military vehicles. Protesters were also seen throwing rocks, but being repelled by tear gas and water cannon.Television cameras also caught the moment armoured vehicles drove into a crowd but it is unclear if there were any injuries. El Universal newspaper said that at least 37 people had been injured across Caracas.The BBC’s Guillermo Olmo, in Caracas, said Tuesday marked the most violent episode of the Venezuelan political crisis so far.Meanwhile, Venezuelan Defence Minister Vladimir Padrino said the uprising by some members of the military had been “partly defeated”, but warned of possible bloodshed.“The weapons of the republic are here to defend the nation’s sovereignty and independence,” he warned. He also revealed one soldier had suffered a bullet wound.
