LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Turkish clubs Fenerbahce and Besiktas have asked sports highest court to overturn European competition expulsions imposed by UEFA for match-fixing. Fenerbahce wants its Champions League ban frozen until its appeal is completed, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said Wednesday. Fenerbahce was scheduled to enter the third qualifying round draw on Friday, and play a first-leg match on July 30 or 31. Bursaspor is set to enter instead. CAS has not set dates for hearings. Both clubs deny wrongdoing and are challenging UEFA appeal panel rulings announced on Monday to uphold their expulsions. UEFA judged that Fenerbahce officials fixed matches to win the 2011 Turkish league, and Besiktas fixed its 2011 Turkish Cup victory. Fenerbahce has sent UEFA a letter on behalf of its players, protesting what is now its second Champions League ban within three seasons. Forward Dirk Kuyt wrote that players had "a lot of questions" for UEFA, according to a statement published by the Istanbul club. "Its very hard to understand after a one-year ban from European competitions in the season 2011-2012," said Kuyt, a Netherlands international, who helped Fenerbahce reach the Europa League semifinals last season. "This is not even proven that we are guilty. The next year we are allowed to play football in Europe. But after that UEFA comes back again with a higher punishment," Kuyt said UEFA rules bar clubs from its competitions for one season if they are connected to fixing matches played since April 2007. UEFAs latest ruling also barred Fenerbahce for an additional season of European competition when it next qualifies. Besiktas qualified for the Europa League by finishing third in the Turkish league, but could enter the Champions League in place of runner-up Fenerbahce. Galatasaray, the historical rival of Fenerbahce, won the Turkish league and will play in the elite Champions League group stage, which starts in September. Discount Air Max .

TORONTO -- The Canadian machine rolls along.After handling Team Europe with relative ease Wednesday night via a 4-1 count in a game that had only seeding implications, Canada will await the outcome of Thursday afternoons Russia-Finland clash. If the Russians win, it will be Canada hosting Russia on Saturday evening. If Finland upsets the Russians, Team North America would advance, setting up Connor McDavid versus Sidney Crosby.What Wednesdays often-ragged game did establish was a Team Europe versus Sweden match Sunday afternoon.The Swedes, who lost to Team North America in overtime earlier in the day, will be prohibitive favorites. But thats nothing new for Team Europe, which entered the tournament as a long shot to advance beyond the three-game preliminary round.If there is reason for the Swedes to be wary, its in the structure that head coach Ralph Krueger and his staff have imposed on this group of players from eight different European nations.Sure, Canada enjoyed a wide margin in shots, outshooting Team Europe 46-20, but that is more than a little deceiving as the Europeans did generate a number of quality chances but saw shots sailing high and wide all night. They also rarely allowed Canadas superior offense to get rolling via odd-man rushes.Canada went with a modified lineup for this final preliminary game, giving Corey Crawford the start in goal and resting Carey Price, who did not dress. Shea Weber and Ryan Getzlaf also sat, giving Claude Giroux and Jake Muzzin their first taste of World Cup action. Both Weber and Getzlaf are expected in the Canadian lineup Saturday.With only first place in Group A on the line, tthis one lacked much in the way of pizzazz and had the feel more of a pre-tournament game.dddddddddddd In fact, at one point in the third period Marian Hossa stopped to make sure Brad Marchand was OK after the two collided during the Europeans only power play. Marchand later went to the Canada dressing room for repairs. He eventually returned.That said, Canada once again showed that even firing on half cylinders, it is a handful. Sidney Crosbys line was once again a force, with Crosby scoring the first goal of the game on a wraparound. The Canadians would have had a handful more if Jaroslav Halak had not made it a personal mission to stone Marchand at every turn.The Canadian power play wasnt in sync, going 0-for-4, and if Team Europe goes on a penalty jag as it did in the second period, taking two minors and a double-minor, the Swedes will make quick work of the Europeans. Anze Kopitar drew an assist on Team Europes only goal by Marian Hossa, but the teams captain will have to be a more dynamic force if Europe is going to keep its magic alive.Three stars:1. Jonathan Toews, C, Canada: The Chicago captain scored his second and third goals (adding an assist) of the tournament, including a beauty on a breakaway.2. Jaroslav Halak, G, Europe: Halak was again exceptional for Team Europe, stopping 42 of 46 shots. He entered with a tournament-best .969 save percentage.3. Drew Doughty, D, Canada: Doughty was paired with his Los Angeles Kings teammate Jake Muzzin and was a force at both ends of the ice. ' ' '
