  2. Manchester City Women advance in Women's Champions League

    Zvezda 2005 0-4 Manchester City Women (0-6 on aggregate)

    It is a job well done from Manchester City Women, who have moved into the last 16 of the Women's Champions League.

    They secured a convincing 4-0 away victory over Russian side Zvezda 2005 to seal a 6-0 win on aggregate.

    It also meant that Nick Cushing's side, who won the Women's Super League last month, managed to keep a 19th clean sheet of the season in their 24th match in all competitions so far.

    Goals from Lucy Bronze, Jen Beattie (two) and Izzy Christiansen secured the win in Russia today.

  4. Chelsea Ladies need large away win

    Wolfsburg Ladies v Chelsea Ladies (17:00 BST)

    Chelsea Ladies' hopes of staying in the Women's Champions League are slim as they trail German side Wolfsburg 3-0 before this evening's last-32 second leg.

    Two-time champions Wolfsburg, who reached last season's final after a 4-1 aggregate win over Chelsea in the last 16, host the second leg from 17:00 BST.

    Visitors Chelsea, who are second in the English top flight, are playing in Europe for only the second season.

    England winger Gemma Davison and South Korea's Ji So-Yun could both return. Davison and Ji both came off the substitutes bench in last Wednesday's first leg, after versatile midfielder Ana Borges was withdrawn because of a head injury.

  5. Player suspended for betting on matches within his team's league

    Football

    1860 Munich forward Ivica Olic has been suspended for two games and fined £18,000 for gambling on matches, including in the league he plays in.

    The German Football Association (DFB) said there was "no evidence of betting manipulation" and the 37-year-old had not bet on his own side's matches.

    But its rules do not allow players to gamble, or use a third party to do so.

    The DFB said the bets, made between 26 August and 11 September, included nine on games in the German second division.

    Zvezda 2005 0-4 Manchester City Women (0-6 on aggregate)

    Manchester City Women are cruising into the last 16 of the Women's Champions League.

    City won 2-0 in the home first leg against Russian side Zvezda 2005 and are impressing in the second leg.

    With 10 minutes to go, City are 4-0 up on the day and 6-0 ahead on aggregate. Lucy Bronze, Jen Beattie (two) and Izzy Christiansen have been the City goalscorers.

  8. Torch anyone?

    Venezuela v Brazil

    A power cut interrupted the World Cup qualifying match between Venezuela and Brazil in the Venezuelan city of Merida on Tuesday night. 

    Brazil were leading 2-0 when the floodlights suddenly went dark in the 74th minute of play.

    The match had to be stopped for 22 minutes until some of the lighting went back on. 

    During the blackout, some Venezuelan fans chanted anti-government slogans and called for a recall referendum.

  11. I want to finish what I started - McClaren

    Steve McClaren returns to Derby

    Some quotes from ex-England boss Steve McClaren, who has returned to take charge of Derby, the club who sacked him 17 months ago.

    "I am excited to be back at Derby County as the club’s manager and I have a great affiliation with the club, having been here on three previous occasions," McClaren told Derby's official website.

    "I'm really delighted at the prospect of finishing what we started back in September 2013. I regret how my time at Derby ended back in 2015 and am very motivated to put things right for the club and our supporters.

    “My ultimate aspiration remains exactly what it was before, to take Derby County back to the Premier League."

    England interim boss Gareth Southgate says he is satisfied with four World Cup qualification points from his opening two games in charge.
