NYON, Switzerland -- Arsenal was drawn on Friday to play Fenerbahce in a Champions League playoff affected by legal complications as it seeks a 16th straight season in the lucrative group stage. A pending match-fixing case involving Fenerbahce at sports highest court means the Turkish club could be expelled from the competition even if it wins. The first leg is scheduled Aug. 21 in Istanbul. "We put the politics aside and Arsenal will concentrate on the football side," Arsenal official David Miles told The Associated Press after the draw. "We will keep in touch with UEFA." Seven-time winner AC Milan was paired in the draw with PSV Eindhoven, the 1988 European champion, with the first match in the Netherlands. "Its a classic European cup match-up," Milan director Umberto Gandini said. "Its a pleasure to play with such a historical club, and its a difficult task." Schalke was drawn to play Metalist Kharkiv, which is also threatened with UEFA sanctions for a years-old domestic match-fixing case. The Ukrainian club faces a disciplinary hearing at UEFA on Tuesday. Among the 10 pairings it was: Lyon vs. Real Sociedad, Portuguese newcomer Pacos de Ferreira vs. Zenit St. Petersburg and Shakhter Karagandy hosting Celtic. The Scottish champion faces a long trek to Kazakhstan for the first match, at the national stadium in Astana. First legs are played Aug. 20 or 21 and return matches on Aug. 27 or 28. Winners advance to the elite 32-team group stage, joining established powers like defending champion Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United. It will be drawn Aug. 29 in Monaco. The Court of Arbitration for Sport has set an Aug. 28 deadline -- the day after Arsenal hosts the return leg -- to rule on Fenerbahces appeal against a two-year ban from UEFA competitions. No hearing date has been set. UEFAs Champions League rules require clubs not to have been involved in fixing matches since April 2007, and several Fenerbahce officials were convicted in a criminal trial of fixing matches during the clubs 2011 national title run. They deny wrongdoing. Metalist also faces UEFA sanctions after CAS last month dismissed an appeal by the Ukrainian clubs sports director against a five-year ban from football. The Ukrainian federation had judged that Metalists 4-0 win against Karpaty Lviv in an April 2008 league match was fixed. Metalist vice-president Konstantin Pivovarov confirmed that, even if UEFA rules against the club, it is likely to appeal that verdict at CAS and try to continue in the competition. "Were expecting to play Metalist," Schalke official Moritz Beckers-Schwarz said. If Metalist is removed, its defeated third qualifying round opponent -- PAOK Thessaloniki, led by a former Schalke coach -- could in theory be reinstated. "We would like to play PAOK because Huub Stevens is the coach now and that would be an interesting issue," Beckers-Schwarz said. Fenerbahce eliminated Salzburg this week in the qualifying round. Two years ago, the Fenerbahce case led to its withdrawal from the groups draw by the Turkish football federation on the eve of the Monaco event. Trabzonspor was restored in its place despite previously losing in the qualifiers. Other pairings Friday were: 1986 champion Steaua Bucharest vs. Legia Warsaw, Viktoria Plzen vs. Maribor, Dinamo Zagreb vs. Austria Vienna, Ludogorets Razgrad vs. Basel.

Jesse Biddle Rangers Jersey .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. A Ben Barba masterclass has fired Cronulla a 36-4 demolition of lowly Newcastle as the Sharks continued their relentless march towards September.With playmaker James Maloney missing on Sunday, Barba was at his brilliant best in helping Cronulla to their 15th straight win - an eight-tries-to-one rout which saw them retain top spot on the NRL ladder.In a scrappy game marred by penalties and dropped ball, Barba was in menacing form in front of 16,882 at Southern Cross Group Stadium.There wasnt much Barba wasnt involved in as he scored two tries, had another two denied by the video referees, set up another two, and came up with a linebreak and three linebreak assists.He organised our defensive line well, he was dangerous with the ball, he supported and got a try at the end, coach Shane Flanagan said.Hes in fine form at the moment and hes working really hard at it. Hes in a good place.The young Knights side lost Jarrod Mullen to injury and offered little resistance, but Flanagan lamented his sides 16 handling errors and nine penalties.But the Sharks became just the fourth team to win 15 games on end, a statistic that further bolsters their premiership chances.All five mmembers of the Sharks back five crossed for tries with Valentine Holmes getting a double to celebrate his 21st birthday.ddddddddddddHolmes was influential, running for 236m and terrorising his opposition down the right flank.For the last-placed Knights, it was their 12th straight loss.And they had injury added to insult when five-eighth Mullen left the field with what is believed to be a recurrence of a hamstring problem that has disrupted his season.The pleasing thing was the last time we played them, at halftime it was about 36-0 and on this occasion it was 10-0 so it probably shows weve come a fair way, Knights coach Nathan Brown said.The Sharks were controversially twice denied by the bunker.Holmes was knocked back in the second minute after picking up a loose ball and sprinting 60m but was ruled to have committed a double movement.Cronulla were the victim of a video referee clanger in the 30th minute when Barba was denied a brilliant solo try after Bernard Sutton ruled hooker Michael Ennis took out his Knights opposite Chris Adams.
