He then urged his followers to continue staying at home if they have nothing important to do outside and to wear their masks properly.

“The latest toys, shoes, streetwear and gadgets can wait,” Guerrero added. “Your old and new hobbies can wait. Stay at home.”

Messi inspires win over Napoli but Barca will need more vs Bayern

Lionel Messi scored a brilliant solo goal as Barcelona saw off Napoli on Sunday but they are likely to need something even more special from their captain to beat Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals.

Messi’s weaving run and finish came between an early Clement Lenglet header and a Luis Suarez penalty, also won by Messi, as Barca stormed into a 3-0 lead in the first half at Camp Nou.

But Lorenzo Insigne gave Napoli hope just before the interval and an unconvincing second period from Barcelona left them hanging on for a 3-1 win on the night, 4-2 on aggregate.

“A second goal would have given them a feeling of euphoria that can hurt you,” said Barca coach Quique Setien.

“It’s normal to get a little nervous.”

In winning the penalty, Messi took a heavy kick from Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and needed treatment.

“It was a heavy knock,” said Setien. “It will have to be treated but I don’t think there is a problem.”

After finishing five points behind Real Madrid in La Liga, Barca resumed in the Champions League with doubts hanging over the form of the team and the future of their coach.

Setien said on Friday he had not considered resigning but failure in Europe, after a turbulent domestic campaign, would likely take the decision out of his hands.

Victory against Napoli eases the pressure but the performance will not inspire confidence, even with Messi seemingly rejuvenated after three weeks rest.

Napoli, whose own league season only finished last weekend,

Kevin Harvick denies Brad Keselowski in overtime at Michigan

BROOKLYN, Mich. — Kevin Harvick forced his way past Kyle Busch, then fended off hometown threat Brad Keselowski.

It takes a lot to beat Harvick these days — especially in Michigan.

Harvick raced to his fifth NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season, outlasting Keselowski in overtime Saturday in the opener of a weekend doubleheader at Michigan International Speedway. Harvick now has four victories at Michigan, including three in the last three years. He’s been a big part of what is now a five-race winning streak for Ford at the Cup level at MIS.

“Just got challenged by a whole bunch of restarts at the end that made it kind of crazy,” Harvick said. “But in the end it was a great day for us. Everybody did a great job, called a great race, and we capitalized on a fast car and put it in Victory Lane.”

Keselowski was denied again in his home state. He’s never won a Cup race at Michigan, but he’ll have another chance Sunday. It would have been a tall order to overcome Harvick’s dominant No. 4 car on this day. Harvick also won the race’s first two stages.

“At no time did I think us or anybody else was better than the 4,” Keselowski said.

Martin Truex Jr. finished third, followed by Ryan Blaney and Kyle Busch.

Busch remained winless on the year with five races left in the regular season.

For the first two stages, the only yellow flags were for a competition caution and the stage endings. Then there were six cautions in the final stage and even a brief red flag for track cleaning.

The race, normally a 200-lap, 400-mile affair, was scheduled for 156 laps this time. It went to overtime after Christopher Bell made contact with Austin Dillon to
