A calm PSG before Barça, Jonathann Daval and a deadly explosion in Italy

Did you miss the news this morning? We have put together a summary to help you see things more clearly.

After the crazy match on Tuesday between Real and Manchester City (3-3), it’s time for PSG who will meet Barça this Wednesday evening in the quarter-final of the Champions League. No “bete peeve” syndrome, no allusion to the famous “remontada”, no focus on the seesaw performances of “Kyky”. “You are talking to me about a player but I prefer to speak from a collective point of view and not an individual. As a group, we are in a great state of mind and I think we are entering this match in a very good period,” said Luis Enrique on Tuesday during the pre-match press conference.

This bonus to group strength was the common thread of the media interventions of the former Barça coach, but also of the faithful soldier Danilo Pereira, sent to face the microphones before him. “I feel that the pressure is different for this meeting but the coach gives us serenity and calm,” announced the versatile Portuguese international, who could start on Wednesday in central defense. It’s important for a match like this: we have to be calm, calm, and just think about the game.”

The match at the Parc des Princes is placed under “reinforced security”, after threats from Daesh on social networks.

On the dock: Jonathann Daval, one of the best-known feminicide convicts in France. On the opposite bench: Isabelle and Jean-Pierre Fouillot, parents of Alexia whom their former son-in-law killed, their daughter Stéphanie and her husband Grégory Gay.

This Wednesday in Besançon, Jonathann Daval will be back in court, this time for slanderous denunciations. He was summoned to appear in court by his in-laws. “Jonathann Daval is criticized for his lies, for six months, when he accused Grégory Gay of having strangled Alexia with the complicity of his family,” recalls Jean-Hubert Portejoie, one of the plaintiffs’ lawyers. The brother-in-law “was traumatized by these false accusations, it is a question of principle, his honor must be definitively cleared, regardless of the sentence”, continues the council.

On the night of October 27 to 28, 2017, Jonathann Daval killed his wife Alexia at their home in Gray-la-Ville (Haute-Saône). The next day, he transported her body to a wood before setting it on fire and raising the alarm, claiming that his wife had not returned from her jogging. Alexia’s body was found two days later after extensive citizen searches.

The explosion on Tuesday afternoon at a hydroelectric power station in central Italy left at least four dead and three injured, and five people are missing, the Bologna prefecture said. “It appears that there has been a collapse of the floor slab and rescue is difficult because a lot of water has penetrated inside the eighth floor of the basement,” said the mayor of the neighboring town of Camugnano, Marco Masinara.

According to the head of the Bologna fire brigade, it is not immediately possible to determine the causes of this accident. The premises where the explosion occurred are partially flooded and filled with smoke and therefore immediately inaccessible. Enel Green Power, the renewable energy production unit of giant Enel which operates the plant, said it was coordinating with authorities.
