LONDON — The Champions League talking points ahead of the second-leg matches in the quarterfinals: TUESDAY: PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN VS. BAYERN MUNICH (3-2) Bayern heads to Paris as a team of walking wounded, while PSG is likely to be without its best defender Marquinhos and waiting to see if key midfielder Marco Verratti has recovered in time from coronavirus. Marquinhos sustained an adductor injury in the first leg and is likely to be missing at Parc des Princes. But Bayern's concerns are worse. Coach Hansi Flick's side is running on low fuel after this weekend's 1-1 draw with Union Berlin, where Flick tried to rest some first-choice players. Goal-scoring winger Serge Gnabry won’t return from isolation in time to face PSG after his positive test for the virus. Former PSG striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is still deputizing for the prolific Robert Lewandowski, who was sorely missed when chances galore were wasted last week in Bayern's loss to PSG. But indications are that left back Lucas Hernandez, midfielder Leon Goretzka and winger Kingsley Coman could be ready in time. Flick badly needs a fit Coman, who scored the winner in last year’s final against PSG and looks to have shaken off a sore knee from Saturday. CHELSEA VS. PORTO (2-0) Winning the Champions League might be the only path back into the competition next season for Chelsea. For all the progress under Thomas Tuchel, the London club is in fifth place in the Premier League even after an emphatic 4-1 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday. Coronavirus travel restrictions mean the second leg is being played in Seville, Spain, just like the first leg last week. This counts as Porto's away game. It has won five in a row in all competitions, the latest against Tondela in the Portuguese league on Saturday keeping the team second. The defending Portuguese champion is seeking its first semifinal appearance since 2004, when José Mourinho guided the club to its second European Cup. Porto, however, has lost its last six matches with English clubs. Its leading scorer in the competition this season is midfielder Sérgio Oliveira, with five goals. WEDNESDAY: BORUSSIA DORTMUND VS. MANCHESTER CITY (1-2) Reaching the semifinals would be a huge achievement for Dortmund, which is not on course to qualify for next season's Champions League while seven points outside of the Bundesliga's top four. That will make it very hard to keep star striker Erling Haaland in the face of interest from Europe's biggest clubs. However, sporting director Michael Zorc has said the club is planning to start next season with the Norwegian in the squad. City is one of the sides keen to sign the 20-year-old Haaland but its ability to keep the star largely quiet in the first leg helped to secure the advantage. Haaland setting up Marco Reus for a goal in Manchester means City will have to fight to secure progress. Pep Guardiola's decision to rest stars like Kevin De Bruyne on Saturday against Leeds backfired when City lost to the promoted side. But City is still 11 points ahead at the top of the Premier League. LIVERPOOL VS. REAL MADRID (1-3) Real Madrid is in its best form of the season. It followed the first-leg win over Liverpool with a victory against Barcelona in the Spanish league clásico to temporarily go top. Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane still has injury problems, though, as it's unlikely defenders Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane will play the return match in England. Forward Lucas Vázquez is ruled out after injuring his left knee against Barcelona. With no fans allowed inside Anfield, Liverpool’s players need all the confidence they can muster. Registering its first win — and first open-play goals — at home in 2021 could not have come at a better time in its league victory over Aston Villa on Saturday. With the outgoing Premier League champions three points from the Champions League places, making the top four is proving a challenge. Winning a seventh European Cup might be the only ticket back into the competition next season. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

Australia has abandoned a goal to vaccinate nearly all of its 26 million population by the end of 2021 following advice that people under the age of 50 take Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine rather than AstraZeneca's shot. Australia, which had banked on the AstraZeneca vaccine for the majority of its shots, had no plans to set any new targets for completing its vaccination programme, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said in a Facebook post on Sunday afternoon. "While we would like to see these doses completed before the end of the year, it is not possible to set such targets given the many uncertainties involved," Morrison said.

CHICAGO — The Kansas City Royals could be headed for a hangover. Manager Mike Matheny hopes so, anyway. Michael A. Taylor scored when Garrett Crochet misplayed Andrew Benintendi's bunt in the 10th inning, sending the Royals to a wild 4-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. “That's the kind of win ... that you hope kind of have a hangover effect," Matheny said. "You have some that can negatively have that hangover, and this is going to be one of those with the positive.” Taylor opened the 10th on second base and advanced on Nicky Lopez's sacrifice. After Whit Merrifield was walked intentionally, Benintendi bunted the ball right back to the mound. It looked as if Crochet (0-1) had time to get Taylor at the plate, but he spiked his throw and catcher Zack Collins couldn't come up with it. It was Chicago's second error of the day and ninth overall in the first nine games. “The bunt hopped up on him," White Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “If it had stayed down, you practice underhanding it, but it came up, so he had to go over the top, so it was a tough play for him.” Greg Holland (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings for the win, and Kyle Zimmer worked a perfect 10th for his first career save. The Royals celebrated Zimmer's achievement by showering the right-hander with beer. “It's another box I get to check off on my personal career,” Zimmer said. “But the win and the team just definitely comes first.” Chicago had won 17 straight games when its opponent started a left-handed pitcher, one shy of the major league record set by Atlanta from 2004-05. But it ended up on the losing end of a roller-coaster finish. Kansas City grabbed a 2-1 lead on Benintendi’s RBI single in the eighth. But Chicago went back in front on Adam Eaton's first career pinch-hit homer in the bottom half, a drive that hooked just inside the foul pole in right. The Royals then tied it again when Carlos Santana led off the ninth with a drive to centre off Liam Hendriks. It was Hendriks' first blown save since he signed a $54 million, three-year deal with Chicago in free agency. Merrifield also had a run-scoring single for Kansas City, which was shut out by Lance Lynn in a 6-0 loss in the series opener Thursday. Following a day off, Saturday's matchup was rained out. The Royals had dropped six in a row against the White Sox dating to last season. “It's just such a special clubhouse, so anytime we can pull out one against a division rival, it's huge,” Zimmer said. After wasting prime scoring opportunities in the second and third, Chicago jumped in front when Leury García's liner got past leaping third baseman Hunter Dozier for a two-out RBI double in the fourth. Danny Mendick helped set up the run with a 10-pitch walk against Mike Minor. Kansas City bounced right back in the fifth, tying it at 1 on Merrifield's two-out RBI single off Dylan Cease. The Royals had runners on first and second after Merrifield's second hit of the day, but Michael Kopech retired Benintendi on a bouncer to second to end the inning. INSIDE THE NUMBERS The White Sox walked nine times, but they went 1 for 15 with runners in scoring position and left a season-high 12 runners on base. TRAINER'S ROOM Royals: Dozier was replaced by a pinch hitter in the ninth. Dozier has been hampered by a right thumb injury, and Matheny said it was still bothering him a little bit. “Just still trying to make sure we keep ahead of that,” Matheny said. White Sox: SS Tim Anderson (strained left hamstring) remains on track to return this week, general manager Rick Hahn said. Anderson is eligible to come off the 10-day injured list on Thursday. ... Hahn said OF Adam Engel (strained right hamstring) is more likely to return during the team's next homestand than its upcoming six-game trip. “But again, these things have a way of evolving,” Hahn said. Engel got hurt during spring training. UP NEXT Royals: RHP Brady Singer starts Monday night against the Angels in the opener of a 10-game homestand. Singer allowed six runs in 3 1/3 innings in a 7-3 loss to Texas last weekend in his first outing of the season. White Sox: LHP Carlos Rodón pitches Monday night in the opener of a four-game series against Cleveland. Rodón is coming off five impressive innings in a 6-0 victory at Seattle. RHP Triston McKenzie (0-0, 2.45 ERA) starts for the visiting Indians. ___ Jay Cohen can be reached at https://twitter.com/jcohenap ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Jay Cohen, The Associated Press

KYOTO, Japan, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nidec Corporation (TSE: 6594; OTC US: NJDCY) (the “Company” or “Nidec”) today announced that it has decided to open new factories in the city of Novi Sad in the Republic of Serbia (“Serbia”), and that it has held an event to announce the launch of business in the country. 1. The event to announce the launch of business in Serbia At today’s event, held at the office of president, Serbia, and attended by President Aleksandar Vučić, Mayor Miloš Vučević of Novi Sad, and Japanese Ambassador to Serbia Takahiko Katsumata, among others, the Company announced its plan to launch business in Serbia. Yesterday, on April 8, the Company held a ceremony to open a new business office in Novi Sad to start preparations to start up the factories in full scale. On the same day, the Company completed the execution of a strategic alliance agreement with the University of Novi Sad, to actively engage in, among other activities, technological exchanges via industry-academia partnerships. 2. Events leading up to the concept of launching new business bases In Europe, where environmental regulations and major countries’ automobile CO2 emission regulations are becoming increasingly stricter, demand is expanding for automotive motors and related products, and for high-efficiency brushless DC motors for home appliance businesses. Under the circumstances, to build an efficient system to supply the aforementioned and other products in Europe, the Company plans to open new factories in Serbia (i) to consolidate the Nidec Group’s production activities in East European region, and (ii) for Nidec’s Automotive Motor & Electronic Control Business Unit and group companies to launch multiple businesses in the future. While the Company’s multiple businesses will be operated at the same sites to seek synergies by sharing the same production infrastructure and back-office, the new business bases will engage in, among others, supplying products to the European market, while looking to design and develop products locally in Serbia, a country abundant in people in the fields of science and engineering who are fluent in English. This latest launch of business in Serbia matches the Western Balkans Cooperation Initiative that the Japanese government is currently promoting in Serbia and other countries, and receives tremendous support from the governments of Japan and Serbia. In the past, the Company established an economic development zone in the city of Pinghu, China, for multiple businesses, and the site is now home to 12 such companies that develop, produce, and sell their products, enhancing the Company’s presence in the Chinese market. Now, in Europe, as part of its growth strategy based on synergies within the Nidec Group, the Company is poised to utilize its new business bases in Serbia as the core hub of Nidec’s European business. 3-1.
