#1
MADRID - James Rodriguez scored in his Spanish debut as Real Madrid earned a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Super Cup on Tuesday. Brandan Wright Jersey . Rodriguez came on for Cristiano Ronaldo in the second half at the Santiago Bernabeu and found the back of the net in the 80th minute after he pounced on a loose ball in the penalty area following an attempt by Benzema. Raul Garcia equalized for Atletico in the 87th from a corner. Throughout the first half, Atletico held Madrid in check by dominating the midfield with disciplined tackling and ensuring at least two players shadowed forwards Gareth Bale and Ronaldo every time a pass was made to them. Rodriguez joined Xabi Alonso, Toni Kroos and Angel Di Maria in Madrids midfield and was brought on by coach Carlo Ancelotti after Ronaldo had been seen holding and rubbing his left leg late in the first half. Di Maria had come on in the second half for Luka Modric. "He did well," Ancelotti said of James. "All the second half the team played with greater speed and intensity, looking for chances from the wings. He scored and thatll give him more confidence." The match was preceded by a tribute to Madrid great Alfredo Di Stefano, who died in July. A string quartet played as the club displayed large photographs of the forward and the silverware he helped win to the crowd. Tennis player Rafael Nadal, who this week said he will not be defending his US Open title, watched the match from the VIP stand. "Kroos is an important player and a great signing for Real Madrid," Nadal said at half time. Madrid began with captain Iker Casillas in goal. He was tested twice in the first 15 minutes by shots from Saul Niguez and Mario Mandzukic. Atletico played a physical game throughout and defender Guilhelmo Siqueira was the first to be shown a yellow card after fouling Bale on the right touchline in the 13th minute. Alonso was booked in the 39th for a clumsy tackle from behind on Atleticos left winger Jorge "Koke" Resurreccion. The referee calmed tensions when he punished Sergio Ramos and Mandzukic with a yellow card each in 60th after the two players fell from an aerial challenge with flailing arms. Atleticos 30-million euro ($40-million) signing, Antoine Griezmann, came on for Niguez in the 57th minute and Cristian Ansaldi came on seven minutes later for Siqueira. Rodriguez earned a free kick in the 67th which Bale took and Atletico goalkeeper Miguel Angel Moya punched out straight to Kroos, who miskicked and skied the ball. Kroos then stabbed the ball weakly in the 75th minute, giving Moya an easy catch, and Benzema headed over the bar three minutes later. Raul Jimenez substituted Mandzukic in the 78th for Atletico and Di Maria came on for Modric to reinforce Madrids midfield. Two minutes after Rodriguezs goal Casillas saved a shot by Koke and before Garcia equalized for Atletico. The Bernabeu erupted with protests from its fans as Atletico midfielder Mario Suarez appeared to handle the ball in injury time, but the referee did not award the sought-after penalty. The second leg is to be played Friday at Atleticos Vicente Calderon Stadium. Despite having scored an away goal, Atletico coach Diego Simeone said his teams chances of winning the cup were still only 50 per cent. "We are going to find ourselves up against a team with many attacking options and very good players," he said of the second leg.

At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. http://www.thegrizzliesofficial.com/Auth...es-Jersey/ . "Hes over there," the first baseman said. "You dont need to talk to anybody else." Indeed, Peralta did it all as the majors top team won again.Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - With a four-point lead in the standings, the Toronto Argonauts try to put even more distance between themselves and the other clubs in the Eastern Division as they cross over and take on the Edmonton Eskimos tonight in Toronto. You can see all the action on TSN and TSN Mobile TV beginning at 7pm et/4pm pt. Since losing back-to-back games against British Columbia and Saskatchewan in the second and third weeks of the season, respectively, Toronto has come on strong by scoring no less than 35 points in each of the last three outings. In fact, the Argos have taken care of the action on both sides of the ball during this three-game win streak, outscoring the competition by a combined 111-44 margin. The Argos have not experienced this level of success over a three-game span in the regular season since posting a trio of victories in succession back in 2007. Last week the Argonauts took advantage of a weakened Montreal squad, on the road no less, streaking out to a 31-0 lead before settling in for a 38-13 triumph. With the victory the team gave itself a slight cushion in the standings, now four points ahead of both the Alouettes and Hamilton Tiger- Cats. Returning to action after missing time due to a knee injury, quarterback Ricky Ray connected with John Chiles on a pair of touchdown passes in the first quarter, but it wasnt until late in the period that the game really got exciting, as Chad Owens returned a missed field goal 118 yards for a score to give the Argos a 21-0 edge after 15 minutes of action. Ray finished the meeting 15-of-18 passing for 152 yards and three touchdowns, while backup Zach Collaros was also given time under center for the visitors, resulting in another 44 yards through the air and 31 on the ground. Owens, perhaps the most exciting player in the league for the last several years, was named the CFL Special Teams Player of the Week as he finished with 247 all-purpose yards in the triumph. Also earning league recognition was defensive back Alonzo Lawrence, who claimed CFL Defensive Player of the Week honors after forcing a fumble and recovering two more in the onslaught. While the Argos pretty much had their meeting with Montreal in the bag after just one quarter of action, the Eskimos found themselves fighting right up until the final gun as they bowed to visiting Hamilton by a score of 30-29. Edmonton had a chance to snap what had been a three-game slide, but Grant Shaws last-second field goal atttempt missed the mark, extending the squads run of defeats to four in a row. Shareef Abdur-Rahim Jersey. All alone in last place in the Western Division, having won only once in six opportunities, Edmonton controlled the ball for just over 25 minutes and was unable to capitalize on a staggering 12 penalties for 138 yards assessed against the Ticats. Mike Reilly hit on 21-of-32 passing as the starting quarterback, resulting in 311 yards and a score, but that didnt stop Edmonton from also fielding Kerry Joseph and Jonathan Crompton at the position during the outing. Running back Hugh Charles scored once on the ground for Edmonton, but gained a total of just 40 yards on nine attempts, while wideout Cary Koch was tops among receivers with eight catches for 112 yards. Despite Reilly trying to carve out some space for himself on the Edmonton offense, the unit continues to have issues. Through six games, the Eskimos are last in the league in scoring with just 21.3 ppg, with much of that being the result of placing last in the CFL in both plays from scrimmage (435) and average time of possession (27:15). On the defensive side of the ball Edmonton is in the middle of the pack with 28.2 ppg allowed. However, linebacker Damaso Munoz is currently second in the league in tackles with 41. The Eskimos need Munoz and his teammates to apply as much pressure as they can at the line of scrimmage because trying to slow down Ray, a former Edmonton player himself, is not easy. Ray has completed a staggering 76.4 percent of his passes for 1,355 yards and 11 touchdowns, all without being picked off yet in 2013. In addition to Rays near perfection, the Argos also enjoy the exploits of Owens, who is first in the league in receiving with 43 catches for 470 yards and also tops in combined yards (1,154), as he aims to record yet another 3,000 yard campaign. Since 2004 the teams have earned an even split of their 18 matchups, although Edmonton has had the upper hand in recent years with five straight victories, the latest triumph coming in August of last season when the Esks delivered a 26-17 win on the road. The last win for Toronto was three seasons ago on August 10 when the squad slipped by in a 29-28 final. With their run of success of late, Edmonton now leads the all-time series, dating back to 1961 and taking into consideration only regular-season matchups, by a 45-38-1 mark. The teams are also set to face each other in late September when the Argos visit Edmonton.
