The Argentine and Portuguese superstars are missing in action from the shortlist following difficult ends to their time in the competition last season

Seven Bayern Munich players have made the cut for for the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League positional award shortlists – but there is no room for a nomination for either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo among them.

But there is a place for Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes among a three-man selection in the running for the UEFA Europa League Player of the Year.

Hansi Flick’s side stormed to a first European title in seven years with a 100 per cent win record – the first time such a feat has ever been achieved in the competition’s history – and secured their second continental treble in history with success against Paris Saint-Germain in Lisbon.

It is no surprise then to see them make up more than half of the nominated players up for the tournament’s top awards, with the Bundesliga side locking out the trio of defensive nods in its entirety while picking up two in midfield and one apiece among the goalkeepers and forwards.

Barcelona man Messi however – who recently was the subject of a bitter public dispute over his future at the club before confirming to Goal that he would remain with the team – and Juventus star Ronaldo, however, miss out entirely after both saw their clubs underperform with quarter-final and round-of-16 exits.

Hawaii Lt. Gov. Josh Green, a still-practicing doctor who has helped lead the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, shared Friday that he has tested positive.

“Found out tonight one of the members of my staff, our security detail, he and his wife ended up positive,” Green told NBC affiliate KHNL in Honolulu. “Best we can guess is that I caught it from one of them, and might not have even been tested had I not found out they were positive.”

Meanwhile, the pandemic is leading universities to continue to fight outbreaks, with Iowa State reversing an earlier plan to allow 25,000 fans into its stadium for Saturday’s football game.

In Hawaii, all 14 members of the lieutenant governor’s staff are now self-isolating and getting tested for coronavirus. Kohala Hospital, a rural 28-bed medical facility on the island of Hawaii, said Green worked shifts there last week, and that it is testing all employees who came in contact with him.

“Just please everybody be thoughtful about who you’re around and how quickly you can spread disease. I’m 50 years old and pretty strong and healthy, but it’s a worry. The mortality rate is 1 percent,” Green said. “That means it’s very real.”

Hawaii is one of 15 states that has seen a slight decrease in the number of cases in the past 14 days, while 21 other states have seen an uptick over the same period, according to an NBC News analysis.

But in Hawaii and 11 other states. the number of deaths related to COVID-19 rose over the previous two weeks.

Twenty-nine states have reported a decrease in deaths, the analysis found.

New York, for example, the state hardest hit by the virus early on marked its 36th straight day with an infection rate below 1 percent. The state reported Saturday a total of two deaths, with none in New York City.

The state, which has led the country in testing, performed nearly 103,000 tests on Friday, a new record.

“The more testing you do, the more accurate a picture of the virus’ spread you have,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement on Saturday. “Yesterday’s record-high number of tests helps the state make informed decisions to protect the welfare of New Yorkers, and helps them make informed decisions for themselves.”

Colleges struggle

For many states, the spread of coronavirus at colleges and universities remains a concern, including with the recent resumption of college football.

Iowa State University, in Ames, Iowa, banned tailgating at its football games and after saying earlier it would allow 25,000 fans in its 60,000-person stadium last week, the school announced no fans would be allowed in the stands.

The campus appeared eerily quiet on Saturday morning as players geared up for its home game against the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

The commentator was just saying how comfortable Paris Saint-Germain were looking when it happened. “They are quite happy for Bayern to have the ball in their half,” he said. But it was at that precise moment that Thiago Alcantara weaved his magic, firing a crisp pass between the lines.

The ball was in the back of the net seconds later. The goal was enough to win the 2020 Champions League for Bayern Munich and while scorer Kingsley Coman was the official man of the match, the role of Thiago in the team’s triumph escaped absolutely no one.

At 29 and reluctant to sign a new contract, Bayern realised they might have to sell. Liverpool are now ready to pounce and it is easy to see why the move might appeal. Jurgen Klopp’s side can do almost anything. But they cannot do what Thiago can do.

“Liverpool’s squad is fine in most areas,” Jamie Carragher recently told Sky Sports. “But l think there are a couple of glaring areas where it should be better than it is.”

OM vs PSG: PSG faces Olympique Marseille in a Ligue 1 match at the Parc des Princes in Paris, France, on Sunday, September 13, 2020 (9/13/20).

The defending Ligue 1 champions returned to domestic action, following their defeat in the Champions League final, with another loss, this time to newly-promoted Lens. PSG were without the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Keylor Navas but the defeat still came as a shock and they will hope to bounce back immediately.

What better game for them to do so than against their bitter rivals Marseille. The hatred between the two clubs is clear to see, with Paris Saint-Germain shirts and colours initially banned from Marseille’s city centre on the day of the Champions League final – though it was eventually reversed. Marseille fans were also filmed celebrating wildly through the city when PSG lost the final to Bayern Munich, letting off fireworks and flares – as they kept their place as France’s only Champions League winners.

Marseille won their opening league game last time out, beating Brest 3-2, but are winless in their last 16 league games against PSG, managing just three draws to their 13 defeats. Can they add to PSG’s misery, or will the French champions get on the points board with a bang?

Defending champion Paris Saint-Germain opened its league campaign without its stars and lost 1-0 at promoted Lens on Thursday.

Striker Ignatius Ganago finished powerfully in the 57th minute after third-choice PSG goalkeeper Marcin Bulka passed the ball to him instead of teammate Marco Verratti, who perhaps should not have demanded it on the edge of the penalty area.

PSG was missing Kylian Mbappé, Neymar and five others who also tested positive for the coronavirus recently, including winger Angel Di Maria.

Six were positive following a club-approved trip to Ibiza soon after the 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League final on Aug. 23. Mbappé was not with them and his positive COVID-19 test happened on international duty with France last week.

In their absence, coach Thomas Tuchel handed debuts to 18-year-olds Kays Ruiz-Atil and Arnaud Kalimuendo in attack, while the 20-year-old Bulka made just his second appearance.

He wasn’t helped when Verratti sprinted to demand the ball and the flustered goalie instead directed it straight to Ganago, who brushed off Verratti’s attempt at a tackle and smacked the ball into the top corner.

“Yes it was a bit dangerous but that’s my way of playing. I always look for the ball because I play football. I asked for the ball,” Verratti told broadcaster Canal Plus. “There are a lot of factors but we gave everything.”

Earlier, Ganago hit the post after a fine run…
