  • GLASGOW, Scotland -- Lionel Messi steered Barcelona to a 13th straight appearance in the Champions League knockout stage, scoring both goals in a 2-0 win at Celtic as the Spanish team secured top spot in Group C on Wednesday. Schoenen Nike Shox NZ Heren Wit/Zwart Logo Electroplate Button .Messi drove in a 24th-minute opener at Parkhead before converting a penalty in the 55th, putting him on nine goals already in four group games.Five of those have come against Celtic, following his hat trick in Barcelonas 7-0 win at Camp Nou in September.With Manchester City drawing at Borussia Moenchengladbach in the groups other game, Barcelona is four points clear of City and cannot be denied first place heading into the final round of matches in group play.Celtic will finish last in the group and is out of Europe altogether.The Scottish champions hopes of a third memorable win over Barca in 12 years -- after a UEFA Cup victory in 2004 and a Champions League triumph in 2012 -- looked thin from the moment Messi scored his 91st goal in the competition, meeting a clipped pass from Neymar with a first-time shot inside the near post.Back after missing Barcas last La Liga game through illness, Messi had already squandered two good chances by then, while Suarez was denied a second goal from a diving header because of an acrobatic save by goalkeeper Craig Gordon late in the half.Barca started the second half sloppily only to be gifted a penalty thanks to a clumsy challenge from Emilio Izaguirre on Suarez.Messi drove his penalty low and straight as Gordon dived to his left.In search of the 38th hat trick of his Barca career, Messi dragged a shot narrowly wide in the 67th. He turned down a shot on goal to tee up Suarez, who struck the post with a close-range shot. Nike Shox Nederland . John Tavares, Thomas Vanek and Kyle Okposo were also being counted on to slow down sizzling Rangers forward Rick Nash. That plan didnt go so well early. Nike Shox Kopen - Heren Nike Shox R4 Wit/Marine/Rood . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday to increase her lead to five strokes after the second round of the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament. . The 15th-ranked Canadian men lost the opening two games of their European tour: 19-15 to No. 17 Georgia and 21-20 to No. TROON, Scotland -- Adam Scott plans on contending yet again for an elusive Claret Jug after eking out a dogged first-round two-under-par 69 to emerge once more as Australias brightest hope at The Open.Clutch under pressure, Scott produced a series of scrambling par saves to complement birdies at the ninth, 16th and 17th holes, where he buried a 30-footer to ignite his otherwise scrappy round.After so many near misses at the Open, Scott admitted to being nervy and unable to calm down during his first half-dozen holes.It felt horrible out there for me. My rhythm was really poor and nothing was really on point, Scott said.But I did well coming into actually hit a few better shots in the last four or five holes and, ironically, my only dropped shot came from a three-putt after hitting so many poor shots today.Thats what youve got to do on the days youre not feeling good and Im happy with my score after all of that.I just could have played my way out of it today.The 2013 Masters champion trails record-setting first-round leader Phil Mickelson by six strokes in his ongoing quest to finally get his hands on golfs greatest prize.Scotts 27-under-par aggregate total over the past four years is six shots superior to anyone in the world - yet the former world No.1 has fallen agonisingly short on all four occasions.Runner-up after squandering a four-shot lead with four holes to pplay at Royal Lytham in 2012, Scott also led deep in the final round at Muirfield the following year and again at St Andrews last year. Nike Dames - Nike Shox OZ D Wit/Perzik. I just take confidence from it, said the world No.8.Of course I analyse what I think I did wrong coming down the stretch, but I do so much right to get to that point every time and keep doing that, and then I have to just get better at closing the golf tournament out and stop making those errors.Its just a good feeling coming to the Open knowing that I can play Open championship golf.I feel like Ive done everything but win it over the last four years and its just the last little hurdle weve got to get over.Its good to know you can contend and play. Ive been doing that for four years straight.So, again, thats what I want to do the next two days. Put myself in with a chance come Sunday. It will be fun.He faces a battle trying to reel in the runaway Mickelson, whose course-record eight-under 63 matched the lowest round in British Open history - an honour shared by nine players including Greg Norman.But, in reality, Scott and Matt Jones - also sitting at two under - look to be the only two hopes of breaking Australias 23-year Open title drought since Norman won the second of his titles at Sandwich. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Black Jerseys China NFL Jerseys White Discount NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' '
