Messi sent off as Athletic beats Barca in Spanish Super Cup - San Francisco Chronicle

Lionel Messi lost his cool after another Barcelona collapse, hitting an opponent away from the ball and being sent off for the first time while playing with the Catalan club in the team’s 3-2 loss to Athletic Bilbao in the final of the Spanish Super Cup in Sevilla. Inaki Williams’ goal in extra time gave Athletic the lead and a come-from-behind win. Barcelona had little chance of recovering when Messi swung his right arm toward the head of an Athletic player while trying to free himself. Messi was shown the red card following a video review. After Athletic scored in the 90th minute to seal a 2-2 draw and force extra time, Williams netted the title-clinching goal with a neat curling shot from just inside the area, with the ball hitting the far post before going into the top corner. • Manchester United stayed atop the Premier League after drawing 0-0 with Liverpool and extending the champion’s winless run to four. • Germany does not expect fans to be allowed back into Bundesliga matches until next season.

German Economy Contracts by 5% in 2020 - Voice of America

Germany’s Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said Thursday the nation’s economy shrank by 5% during 2020, less than predicted, and less than elsewhere in Europe, but still the worst contraction since the 2009 financial crisis.   At a Berlin news conference, Altmaier said the fact the economic contraction was less than the 5.5% predicted earlier in the year is “a small comfort,” but it does show the government was able to mitigate the damage done by the COVID-19 pandemic.   Germany’s federal statistics agency, Destasis, reports the pandemic-driven downturn ended 10 straight years of growth and
