first_imgThe figures of Cristiano Ronaldo They go even further. Have seven top gunner titles, only one of them shared with the aforementioned Messi and Neymar. More than anyone in history. In addition, the Juventus striker holds the record for most goals in a single season: 17 in the 2013-2014 campaign with the Real Madrid shirt. As if that were not enough, the other two best records are also from Portuguese: 16, in 2015-2016 and 15, in the 2017-2018 campaign. The domain of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi hIt has been overwhelming. The Barcelona attacker adds six Champions League top scorer awards, five of them alone. It was specifically Messi the pichichi last season with 12 goals. Only Gerd Müller is close to what was achieved by Christian Y Messi. Whoever was Bayern striker took over four trophies top scorer in the 70s although two of them shared.The drought of Cristiano and Messi in this group stageAll these data surprise with this season. Both figures only accumulate two goals each in the first phase. Very poor figure and well below their usual numbers. Quite the opposite of what was shown by the striker of Bayern, what He has scored 10 goals in six games. To one of Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of eleven goals in the group stage of the Champions League. What has been achieved by Haaland is unique. 8 goals in his debut in the final phase of the Champions League and with 19 years. Predicting that he may be the potential scorer of the next decade. In his first match scored a hat-trick against the Genk then see the door every day except the last against Liverpool.Top scorers 2019-2020Lewandowski (Bayern): 10 goalsHaaland (Salzburg / Dortmund): 8 goalsKane (Tottenham): 5 goalsDepay (O.

The last step of the podium continues to occupy it Raul, with 71. Benzema and Lewandowski They are in a tough dispute and are already fourth and fifth with 64 and 63 goals respectively.center_img Always reliable Robert Lewandowski and the feeling Erling Braut Haaland lead the classification of top scorer of the 2019-2020 Champions. The polish of Bayern Munich takes 10 goals, while the Norwegian, now in the ranks of the Borussia Dortmund after leaving the Red Bull Salzburg, add the figure of 8 goals. Both of them they are eclipsing to the two great nominees of the award in recent years: Cristiano Ronaldo Y Lionel messi. The deed of Lewandowski and of Haaland It is not a small thing since we have to go back to the 2006-2007 campaign to find a player at the top that is neither the Portuguese nor the Argentine crack. It was Kaka when he reached the figure of 10 goals with Milan of Ancelotti. Since then, the name of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi It has always been written when reference has been made to the maximum gunner of the Champions League. There have only been a soccer player who has dared to challenge to both players and It was the Brazilian Neymar, who drew 10 goals with both players in the 2014-2015 season.

Upon review, it determined there are three main supply and demand drivers that have a direct influence on future natural gas prospects in Canada.The factors at hand include lessened drilling levels due to the low cost of natural gas, and growth in natural gas as a byproduct from developing oil as well as liquids rich developments.Also fundamental is producers not making enough in return to attract more investment, as current prices are around $3.00/MMBtu in western Canada.- Advertisement -The NEB says a mid-range prices would mean moderate growth in North American natural gas demand, which could go along with a decline in the Canadian natural gas that’s delivered, and slowing U.S. supply growth.That has the possibility to slowly lessen the excess availability of natural gas in North American markets.It’s projected that Canadian natural gas prices will be $3.60/GJ by 2015, which might lead to a return to some dry gas drilling.Advertisementlast_img read more

To help prevent the spread of the virus, vector control officials will survey Los Angeles County by helicopter to locate out-of-service swimming pools, spas and ponds that are potential breeding sources for mosquitoes. Residents are urged to avoid mosquito-infested areas at dawn and dusk. People should also wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants whenever they are outside, according to officials with the county Department of Health Services. West Nile is spread to humans from the bites of infected mosquitoes, which catch the disease by biting birds that carry the virus. Most mosquitoes do not carry West Nile. The virus cannot be spread by person-to-person contact or directly from birds to people, according to health officials. The first mosquitoes to test positive for West Nile virus this year in Los Angeles County have been found in the San Fernando Valley and Santa Clarita, vector control officials said Tuesday. Mosquitoes infected with the virus were found in Northridge, Chatsworth and Santa Clarita, the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District in Santa Fe Springs said. Tests performed last Wednesday by the California Department of Health Services confirmed the mosquitoes carried the virus, which has not resulted in any reported human cases in California so far this year. The confirmation of West Nile in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys comes much earlier than last year, when mosquitoes in the city of Santa Clarita, Chatsworth and Northridge did not test positive for the virus until July. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
