Today (21:00 hours, Movistar Champions League) appears the City of Guardiola, a huge challenge to gauge the strength of the second Zidane project. The English are presented with 101 goals in 41 games (2.46 on average) and with the Catalan technician used to make Concha Espina your home, with a single defeat in eight games in enemy territory. They are not very promising data for both the 1-X-2 and the Madrid goal of keeping the goal to zero, but also to put the white fans on alert and in tune. In 2019-20, Madrid has played 16 games at the Bernabéu, 12 League, 3 Champions and 1 Cup. His baggage in Europe is 2 draws and 1 win, which speaks of his need to improve local. In the league tournament, Chamartín has not been a trap for rivals either, with 8 wins and 4 draws. And his only copera appearance as host resulted in the elimination at the hands of the Real. Of all this results in 56% of victories. And against all that the team has to help the crowd this week. 9 victories in 16 games (56%) this year at the BernabéuThe second dish, four days later, also paints something indigestible. Barça has held three consecutive wins, A good example of how he has been driving on the stage where he has the most desire. And the classification, without drowning, squeezes Madrid, which has suddenly been seen two points below the leader. This is a week of those for which Real Madrid subscribers have their card as gold cloth. They look at their agenda and look like vacations: there should be no plans for them above those of Wednesday and Sunday, the visits of Manchester City and Barcelona. Two nights that build history and condition the future, in which the Bernabéu will be the judge of this season.

CQ HealthBeat: Home Health Agency Payments Decline Under Medicare ProposalMedicare payments to home health agencies in 2014 will fall by 1.5 percent, or $290 million below calendar 2013 levels, according to a proposed rule released late Thursday.

In a proposed rule Thursday, the CMS said the decrease reflects a 2.4% home health payment update amounting to a $460 million increase in overall payments, combined with a host of adjustments that would decrease payments by $750 million (Zigmond, 6/27).And on the Medicare politics front – The Washington Post: 4 Pinocchios For The Latest ‘Mediscare’ AdThe ad, like similar attacks last year, tries to give itself credibility by citing The Wall Street Journal, which has a conservative-leaning editorial page. But it is quoting from a 2011 news article about a House Republican plan for Medicare — and badly truncates the quote (Kessler, 6/28).
