MONACO -- ??? Monaco sealed first place in Group E of the Champions League with a 2-1 win over Tottenham in a thrilling display of attacking football on Tuesday. Zach Collins Authentic Jersey .Needing just a draw against the only side to remain unbeaten in the Premier League to progress to the knockout phase, Monaco did not hold back. However, it took the hosts 48 minutes to break the deadlock with a goal from Djibril Sidibe, who then turned provider when Thomas Lemar scored the winner five minutes later.Harry Kane had equalized from the penalty spot for Spurs, which can no longer qualify for the knockout phase.We got ourselves back in the game at 1-1 and it was schoolboy to concede straight after that, Kane said. We had to try to grind out a win because we were not great tonight. The second goal took the stuffing out of us. I just dont think on the day we were good enough.Monaco went ahead when Sidibe, unmarked in the box, planted a powerful header into the net from Benjamin Mendys cross.Monaco could not hold on to its lead for long as a rare mistake from Kamil Glik, who dragged Dele Alli down in the area, resulted in a penalty. Kane converted it with a powerful spot-kick.But Spurs defensive inadequacies were exposed less than a minute after their equalizer. From the resulting kick-off, Sidibe burst down the right before crossing for Lemar. The highly-praised midfielder, who scored in the corresponding fixture in September at Wembley, restored Monacos advantage with a shot into the far corner.It was a great evening, Sidibe said. Were playing with a conquering mindset at the moment.It was a deserved win for Monaco, which was the better team for most of the game.In a lively start, Tottenham created the first dangerous move when Son Heung-min beat the offside trap on a swift counterattack but lost his one-on-one with Danijel Subasic. The South-Korean winger vainly tried to dribble the Monaco keeper and was forced wide.The hosts replied immediately through Fabinho, who made the most of a poor clearance to make his way into the box and was brought down by Eric Dier. Radamel Falcao, the Monaco captain, took the penalty -- only to see his low shot to the bottom corner superbly blocked by Hugo Lloriss diving save.With Kevin Wimmer replacing Jan Vertonghen in the heart of Tottenhams back four, Spurs struggled defensively and Monaco -- the highest-scoring side in Europes main domestic leagues -- gradually took control.With its midfielders often losing possession and committing a series of fouls as they tried to recover the ball, Tottenham failed to produce a single shot in goal during the opening 45 minutes.The French league side had another good chance when Mendy sent a cross-shot goalwards that Lloris parried away. Left unmarked in the area, Monaco striker Valere Germain tried his luck from the rebound but his header was too weak to surprise Lloris.Falcao and Sidibe then missed the target and Germain again came close after a pass from Bernardo Silva in midfield sent him through. The striker raced down the right flank and fired an angled low shot that ended just wide.Monaco created two more clear chances through Glik and Falcao after Lemar put the hosts back in front but Lloris ensured a nervy finale with some decisive saves. Zach Collins Womens Jersey . 31, the CFL club announced Monday. The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. Zach Collins White Jersey . LOUIS -- St. . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. BOSTON -- One night after nearly tying the major league record for consecutive at-bats with a hit, Dustin Pedroia will miss the Boston Red Soxs series finale against the Kansas City Royals on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball.Pedroia took leave of the team Sunday morning to attend funeral services for a family member. Hes expected to rejoin the Red Sox midway through Monday nights game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park.Based on his text, hes envisioning a walk-off hit in the ninth, Red Sox manager John Farrell said. Much like Pedey fashion, that was his departing text this morning.A player must miss a minimum of three games to be placed on the bereavement list, so Farrell said the Red Sox will simply play one man short Sunday night and for the first few innings Monday night.Save perhaps for New York Yankees rookie phenom Gary Sanchez, there isnt a hotter hitter in baseball than Pedroia, wwho had his streak of 11 consecutive at-bats with a hit snapped in the eighth inning of Saturday nights 8-3 victory over the Royals (the major league record is 12). Zach Collins Youth Jersey. Pedroia also had reached base safely in 12 straight plate appearances and raised his batting average to .320, second in the American League behind Houstons Jose Altuve entering play Sunday.Pedroias surge coincides with his move into the leadoff spot. Hes 33-for-72 (.458) with four walks and a .481 on-base percentage since the shift from his usual No. 2 spot to the top of the order, a move designed to get Mookie Betts into a run-producing, middle-of-the-order position behind fellow MVP candidate David Ortiz.In Pedroias absence, utility man Brock Holt will start at second base Sunday night. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaNFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
