Sergio Reguilon wants to stay at Sevilla. Jesus Vallejo, Kubo and Borja Mayoral are all also in line to do. Oscar Rodriguez and Alvaro Odriozola will also go if good enough offers are made. Reinier Jesus, still young, will be loaned. Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez are in the first team squad but available for transfer; as are Mariano Diaz and Brahim Diaz, neither of whom have made any impact at the Bernabeu. The same can be said for Luka Jovic From the true Old Guard, Marcelo and Lucas Vazquez may leave.Advertisement Marca have counted an amazing 30 players between the two sides who are on the market, with both sides of the Clasico divide looking to strengthen their first XI by sacrificing unwanted depth players who rarely feature.

Arthur Melo has already been offered out in swap deals. Nelson Semedo is also being shown off to Europe as a tempting prospect.

Tottenham were struggling to break through the visitors’ miserly defence, but were having more luck from distance. Lamela galloped forward and unleashed a 25-yard strike that Fraser Forster did brilliantly to tip on to the post, although the England goalkeeper was not so convincing when denying Eriksen soon after, watching helplessly as the ball crept wide after wriggling out of his grasp. Naughton was forced off with a nasty-looking injury in between those opportunities, but will have been cheered somewhat by his team-mates making the breakthrough in the 40th minute. Attacking down the left, Emmanuel Adebayor squared the ball to Chadli, who flicked to Eriksen and the Danish playmaker unleashed a fizzing strike from the edge of the box just out of Forster’s reach. It was a fine goal which appeared to rattle Southampton, who were thankful for a large dollop of luck just before the break as Chadli raced through on goal, only for his left-footed strike to hit the far post before being hacked clear. Spurs continued on top when the play resumed for the second half, although it looked like the match would be turned on its head seven minutes after the restart. Latching on to a through ball, Mane was barged off the ball by last-man Younes Kaboul. The Spurs skipper feared the worse when Mike Jones harshly called a foul, yet the referee inexplicably only gave a yellow card. It was a peculiar moment in a match Spurs were still looking most likely to score, with Bertrand doing well to block Chadli before Forster fumbled an Eriksen cross. Opposite number Hugo Lloris saved countryman Kaboul’s blushes after slicing a clearance, allowing Victor Wanyama to power a shot goalwards. It was a decent hit from the Kenyan – a connection Mane was unable to match as the winger wasted a late gilt-edged opportunity. Bertrand sent in a low cross for the summer signing, who somehow failed to make the right contact with the ball from six yards and directed wide. It was a huge let-off for Tottenham, so too was a stoppage-time attempt which drifted wide, as they held out for three points. Mauricio Pochettino got the better of Southampton successor Ronald Koeman as Tottenham ended their four-match wait for a Premier League win. Press Association It was a timely shot in the arm for Spurs ahead of the international break, having failed to win their last four top-flight matches and lost their previous two league games at White Hart Lane. Unlike recent weeks, though, there was no sign of a Europa League hangover as Jan Vertonghen had an early header cleared off the line, before Erik Lamela saw a shot pushed on to the post and Eriksen impressively struck from distance. Nacer Chadli hit the post as he attempted to double Spurs’ advantage before the break, from which they returned strongly and kept the visitors at bay. Sadio Mane’s contender for miss of the season in the closing stages was Saints’ best chance as the hosts held out for a win which will have been particularly sweet for Pochettino and his staff. Despite having last term led the south coast side to their best-ever Premier League campaign, the sold-out travelling fans showered him with abuse from the outset in north London. Pochettino may have been under pressure but so too was the Southampton backline, with Ryan Bertrand clearing a Vertonghen header off the line in the fourth minute. However, Saints soon settled and were themselves proving a nuisance at the other end and had a fine chance of their own, with only a last-ditch Kyle Naughton block preventing Mane turning in a Graziano Pelle cross. A Mane cutback just evaded Steven Davis as Southampton continued to up the ante, with Spurs target Morgan Schneiderlin having a close-range effort blocked. All eyes were on the former Argentina international at White Hart Lane, where he was taking on his former club for the first time since ending a successful 18-month stint at St Mary’s to take the reins in north London. Saints have confounded the naysayers by flourishing despite a host of key players following Pochettino out of the club, although a seventh straight win in all competitions was beyond Koeman’s side as a 20-yard strike from Christian Eriksen secured Spurs a 1-0 win.
Walsh admitted being unable to get into a rhythm on the Willie Mullins-trained gelding last month, but has been delighted with his homework since then. The rider said: “We just felt he was a bit buzzy on the day, it was hard to get him in a rhythm. He was standing too far back at some and getting in too deep at others, I was just never in a good rhythm with him. “I couldn’t have been happier with him before he fell, I was travelling really well, I saw a stride and asked him, but he changed his mind.” Walsh reckons Sire De Grugy sets a standard Un De Sceaux has to meet at Ascot. He told Racing UK: “He’s schooled really well since, his work is good, we’re happy with him and Sire De Grugy is a new challenge for us. He sets a standard and we have to get up there. “We’re happy and we’re looking forward to it. He likes what he does, he’s brave, he likes to get on with it and attack fences, I enjoy riding him but the margin for error is quite small. “I think he’s a thrilling horse to ride.” Sire De Grugy should prove a proper adversary for Un De Sceaux, having won this race in 2014 as well as the Champion Chase. Ruby Walsh is confident the real Un De Sceaux will emerge when the exciting two-miler bids to atone for his expensive Leopardstown fall in the Sodexo Clarence House Chase at Ascot on Saturday. The eight-year-old came down at the second-last fence in the Paddy Power ‘So Quick, So Easy iPhone App’ Chase when making all the running to that point and looking likely to justify prohibitive odds of 1-4. He had also taken a tumble on his chasing debut but in between the two blips, had been peerless in four starts that yielded a hat-trick of Grade One triumphs. Press Association After a mixed last campaign, the 10-year-old has been in fine form this winter, winning the Tingle Creek at Sandown for a second time before just losing out in a terrific duel with Sprinter Sacre in the Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton. Trainer Gary Moore said: “He is in great order and as good as can be expected, so it’s fingers crossed. If anything, he is a fraction better than last time. “He’s better in softer ground, he makes soft ground look like good ground. It would definitely make his chances better – I think I’ll be the only one praying for rain at Cheltenham. “I’ve got great respect for Un De Sceaux, what he did last year was unbelievable, and he is the one to beat, but if don’t try you don’t know. “The confidence I have in my horse could not be any higher, I am very confident – whether that is good enough to win, we won’t know until Saturday.”

Comments For the Syracuse women’s lacrosse team, the early portion of its regular-season schedule has been anything but a simple learning experience.Typically, a nonconference schedule is a precursor. It is a time for a team to learn about its identity, its strengths and its weaknesses before the grueling conference schedule begins. But for the Orange, it has had to do so against a flurry of ranked opponents.After the No. 7 Orange (4-2) hosts No. 11 Dartmouth (3-1) today at 3 p.m., SU will have played five nationally ranked opponents in its first seven games. The Orange has defeated No. 12 Stanford (5-2) and No. 9 Towson (5-1) while falling to No. 6 Virginia (6-2) and No. 1 Northwestern (6-0).Syracuse’s schedule has provided a challenge for the team right out of the gate this season. But head coach Gary Gait wouldn’t have it any other way.‘It’s been great,’ Gait said. ‘To play a tough schedule is a goal of mine. We increase our strength of schedule every year so that we can become one of those top five teams in the country. The goal is to play the best of the best and be successful at it. It has put the pressure on early, and it’s made us really work on a lot of different things and look at different styles of play.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith March coming to a close, the Orange has also had its stamina tested. SU had a significant amount of days off in the beginning of the season, including a nine-day hiatus from Feb. 27 to Mach 8. But by tonight, Syracuse will have played three ranked opponents over a weeklong span with the Big East opener just four days away.Though the schedule has been tiring, the players believe that it has appropriately prepped them for the more demanding Big East slate, in which games are played far more frequently. ‘I think over the past couple weeks we’ve had so many games,’ senior attack Jackie DePetris said. ‘At the beginning of the season we had such long breaks. We would have a game and then a whole week off and then a game and a whole week off. But now it’s constant because we’re playing every couple of days, and it’s easier to bring our confidence level into the next game.’With the Big East schedule nearly upon it, Syracuse is poised to begin a run directly up the conference standings. The Orange was chosen second in the conference in a preseason vote by the conference head coaches, falling just short of No. 14 Georgetown (2-4) for the top spot. In an odd set of circumstances, SU’s Big East schedule appears to be far less challenging than its nonconference one.But despite that sentiment, the Orange knows that it can’t take any of its league games for granted, regardless of what team records say.‘Maybe a little bit,’ junior attack Tee Ladouceur said when commenting on whether the schedule will be less daunting from here on out. ‘But the Big East teams that we’re going to play are also pretty tough, so it’s not going to get much easier. We’re going to take it one game at a time and will hopefully be as prepared for each of the games as we need to be.’ Looking back on the nonconference schedule, Syracuse has played moderately well. Aside from a heartbreaking loss to Northwestern, the Orange beat two out of four ranked teams. After today’s game against Dartmouth, SU will have a better understanding of whether or not it can call its nonconference schedule a success.But whether SU loses or manages to pull out the victory, Gait knows that the past is the past. A new season begins on Sunday, and the players need to take what they’ve learned from the first seven games and apply it to what truly defines a season — the Big East schedule.‘Now we move forward,’ Gait said. ‘We’re the highest-ranked team in the Big East at this point, so we’re supposed to win the rest of the way. It’s going to be a great mental test for us to be prepared and focused for every team that comes after us. And we’re going to take it to the Big East and show them that we deserve to be the best.’email@example.com Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 23, 2010 at 12:00 pm
Published on December 22, 2015 at 10:41 pm Contact Matt: firstname.lastname@example.org | @matt_schneidman As Mike Hopkins paced back and forth, he thought about a specific game in which former Syracuse center Baye Moussa Keita had a standout shooting performance. Before the Orange’s matchup with Montana State, Hopkins knew he wanted to get current backup center, Chinonso Obokoh, significant reps before conference play.Obokoh had one point in 27 minutes before Tuesday. A lone made free throw through 11 games.Against the Bobcats, he scored 11 points in 12 minutes. He converted three and-ones en route to a 5-for-7 night from the field. And despite only making one of his five free throws in Syracuse’s (9-3) 82-60 win over Montana State, the 6-foot-9 backup center was showered with praise after his career night.“Chino’s been practicing really hard and he deserves his minutes,” senior Trevor Cooney said. “It was really good to see him go out there and play well.”Obokoh first checked in at the 11:28 mark of the first half, the earliest he’d entered all season. Two minutes later, he absorbed contact in the lane and converted, sending the Syracuse bench into a craze.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAlready eclipsing his scoring total on the season, Obokoh flashed his ability to do what’s been his downfall. He often gets a finger on a ball without corralling it but when he does, the ball doesn’t find its way through the hoop. On Tuesday, the full execution came to fruition as Hopkins’ wish materialized.“A couple of games, I got the ball and they foul me, I couldn’t finish,” Obokoh said, “but this time I kind of refocused … going strong to the rim.”With Syracuse distancing itself from the Bobcats, Obokoh was given more time. He hadn’t played double-digit minutes since the season opener against Lehigh, in which he had no points to show for 15 minutes.Guards even looked for Obokoh in the post as the Orange exploited its significant size advantage down low. On one sequence, Obokoh caught the ball with his back to the hoop and deftly spun around his defender before barely missing another flashy lay-in. Frank Howard said Obokoh was “foolin’” with his post moves on Tuesday, ones the freshman has never seen before.“Whenever he can get a bucket or get some success, we’re all hyped,” Howard said.Obokoh added a slam dunk and a pair of rebounds to his night as the second half wound down. His last bucket, his third and-one to put Syracuse up 30, was followed by his final missed free throw. But on a night where every SU mistake proved inconsequential, it didn’t matter.Before leaving the locker room, Hopkins looked at Obokoh while talking with a staff member and said “I’m so happy for him.” As players started to trickle out, Kaleb Joseph started a “Chino” chant. A refreshing night for a seldom-used player, if only for one game.“For him, especially to see the hard work pay off,” Joseph said, “I’m just really happy for him.” Comments Related Stories Syracuse community reacts to win over Montana StateSyracuse thrashes Montana State 82-60 after sluggish 1st halfFast reaction: Syracuse thrives down low in blowout win over Montana StateGrade Syracuse’s performance against Montana State and vote for the player of the game Facebook Twitter Google+
