Soccer-Ronaldo ready for Real comeback against Osasuna

By Brian Homewood ZURICH (Reuters) - UEFA was unnecessarily scared of the big clubs when it negotiated with them over the Champions League's format, the head of the organization representing Europe's domestic football leagues said on Thursday. UEFA announced significant changes to the Champions League last month, with more group stage places set aside for teams from the top four leagues -- effectively Spain, England, Germany and Italy -- and fewer for teams from smaller leagues. The changes staved off the threat that a breakaway Super League independent of UEFA could be created by the big clubs, a possibility which sources said had been discussed at private meeting

Rapinoe knelt during "The Star Spangled Banner" before her game on Sunday in Chicago and vowed to continue to do so in support of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who did not stand for the song before his NFL team's last two pre season games to protest against racial injustice and police brutality.

UEFA has made significant changes to its flagship Champions League competition in an unacceptable manner which will be detrimental to domestic football, the organization representing Europe's domestic soccer leagues (EPFL) said on Thursday. The EPFL said UEFA's conduct could lead to an end of the agreement where domestic matches are not scheduled on the same nights as matches in European club competitions.
