AS Monaco vs Borussia Dortmund, Champions League 2016/17

Three minutes in, Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Bürki repelled a shot from Benjamin Mendy, but left the rebound for 18-year-old phenom Kylian Mbappe, who hammered it home to put the hosts ahead 1-0 on the night and 4-2 overall. On the eve of the return leg, the mindset of Tuchel and his players is different: a mixture of pride, motivation and defiance. "We'll try to be flat out in the Champions League and the league, but it's normal that we're more exhausted than teams who play less". Read More

Jose Mourinho Jokes He Might Have To Play Centre-Back For United

United boss Jose Mourinho has previously been critical of the England worldwide and said after the match: "I think Luke Shaw's must be a big injury, because to leave the pitch after 10 minutes I am expecting a very big injury".

Cleveland Browns trade up to select Houston CB Howard Wilson

Cleveland Browns trade up to select Houston CB Howard Wilson

Myles Garrett was unsurprisingly the first pick in the Draft . The first round of the National Football League draft had players from Temple and Western Michigan off the board before players from Alabama. "It was insane", Trubisky said . Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders drafted cornerback Gareon Conley out of Ohio State with their only first-round pick, the 24th overall selection. Read More

Mindset key for Browns' top pick Garrett

And I'm not gonna be in any trouble. The saying goes that defenses win championships, but I guess we can't assume these sayings are as common as we believe.

We meet again: Cavs, Raptors back together in postseason

Cleveland was also down in Game 4 and came back to win. The winners of the third rounds are the champions of their respective Conferences and compete in the Finals. Tucker understands even if he hasnt played that many career games against him.

Oilers praise Talbot, expect energy boost from home fans

The Oilers probably can't afford to allow 40 shots if they want to win again, but I think they find a way to improve their defensive effort. He plays in correct positions, which means he stops plays before they even start. Then the reins came off, and it's hard to beat Edmonton end-to-end. Ryan Ellis scored for the second game in a row, extending his point streak to six games. Read More

Pep Guardiola: 'Win over Southampton is so important'

Pep Guardiola: 'Win over Southampton is so important'

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said that any decision on the future of goalkeeper Joe Hart, who has been linked with Liverpool, will only be taken at the end of the season. It is still mathematically possible for Southampton to get European football, while Manchester City is looking for the Champions League. Aguero rose between two Saints defenders to nod in a looping far-post cross from De Bruyne, the Argentine making it 11 goals in his last 11 games and five in as many ... Read More

Williams, a 6-foot, 212-pound running back who rushed for 1,375 yards and 12 TDs for the Cougars last season, offers a second option.

Champion Cavs complete sweep of Indiana

In Game 3, Cleveland showed resiliency, coming down from 25 at halftime, on the shoulders of LeBron's herculean effort. After 31 years on the beat and 85 games this season - 82 in the regular season and three in the playoffs - this is what I've figured out about the 2016-17 Cavaliers: I can' figure them out.

Freeman's homer leads Braves to 10-8 win over Brewers

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman will be looking forward to Sunday's series finale against Milwaukee , mostly because he is apparently exhausted of playing at the Brewers' Miller Park. "He just kept talking about it, so it was really nice". He's been swatting homers easily, blasting moon shots all across the field at an absurd pace and with seemingly little in terms of a "weakness" at the plate. Read More

Djokovic grinds out second-round win over No. 32 Simon

I knew it would take a bit of time but I wasn't expecting to start serving like that. Murray was on the back foot in the opening set as he lost the first game and only caught up late. I've been working hard since the beginning of the clay doing fitness with tennis. Nadal had to save a break point at 1-2 and, after the Spaniard moved ahead, Edmund played his most spectacular game of the match to make it 3-3. Read More

Guardiola Rules Silva Out Of Manchester Derby; Aguero, Jesus Ready To Play

Guardiola Rules Silva Out Of Manchester Derby; Aguero, Jesus Ready To Play

United did beat City 1-0 in the EFL Cup fourth round last October - with Mourinho's side going on to lift the trophy earlier this year - but in almost 17 years of management, he has never lost both ties in the league to the same team. Eric Bailly has made 20 Premier League appearances for Manchester United. "We think he is in fabulous hands". United's battle for a top-four finish and Europa League triumph mean Rooney is likely to play an important role in the coming weeks, although his ... Read More

Brendan Rodgers hails "exceptional" Celtic after Rangers thrashing

Celtic are already the champions of Scotland, and while Rangers are unlikely to beat Aberdeen into second spot, they're equally unlikely to be pipped to third and the second Europa League place by St Johnstone. It was a mighty let-off for Rangers , but it was just a reprieve on what was a thunderously sobering day for them. Scott Sinclair stepped up and coolly sent Wes Foderingham the wrong way and put Celtic in front. Read More

'Mourinho and Tuanzebe against Swansea', jokes Manchester United boss

Aguero has scored 30 goals this season but, despite his efforts, City failed to mount a serious Premier League title challenge and crashed out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling and James Wilson all have knee issues, while Phil Jones is sidelined with a toe injury. After the derby, Mourinho voiced his feeling that the fixture congestion is unfair for his side, who have played 18 matches more than Liverpool , who he sees as the ... Read More

Predators take 2-1 series lead, beating St. Louis Blues 3-1

We started the game the way we wanted to start it. HollywoodLifers , who are you rooting for in this series, the Predators or the Blues? I think as the game progressed, we got to our game a little bit more. The Blues hit another gear with their four-line squad in 2015-16, and they followed Tarasenko's lead all the way to the Western Conference Final. Edmonton also had golden chances, such as McDavid getting alone and untouched in front of Gibson during a power play, but couldn't cash in. Read More

Packers open 2nd round by taking Washington CB Kevin King

Minus retired cornerback Sam Shields, who played only a handful of plays all season, the secondary wasn't fast enough, big enough, tough enough, deep enough or good enough to compete with elite National Football League offenses. Most of all, the Packers hope they can cover elite receivers because that's something they couldn't do previous year. Overall, Williams is the 140th player from BYU to be selected in any round of the NFL Draft and follows last year's selection of Bronson Kaufusi by ... Read More
