Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti will be fielding their strongest team against FC Basel on Wednesday's Champions League Group B match. The team already qualifies for the last 16 but in order to take hold of the top spot, they only need to avoid a defeat of four goals or more.
Real Madrid already have 12 points, Basel have six, while Liverpool and Ludogorets each have three points. If Basel manages to win, it will put them against Ludogorets if Liverpool fails to overcome the Bulgarian club.
"It's true that we have already qualified but we need to play well and win to finish first in the group," says Ancelotti during a news conference. "And that's what we'll do, playing the best possible match with the best possible team." more >>

Adrian Peterson may have upset some when he seemingly compared his legal issues to those of Darren Wilson, the police officer who was not indicted last night for shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri last Aug.
After it was announced that a grand jury would not indict Wilson in the fatal shooting, a number of people went into an uproar. While many people protested in Ferguson and around the country, others like the 29-year-old suspended Vikings running back took to Twitter to express their thoughts.
The Vikings running back made headlines last September when news broke claiming that he abused his four-year-old son whom the football star struck with a stripped tree branch, resulting in severe lacerations. Although his no-contest plea left him avoiding jail time, it also resulted in his inability to play in the NFL for the season. more >>
Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao has managed to defeat Chris Algieri during their bout Saturday, with a unanimous 12-round decision win. The decisive victory over the young 30-year old American has caused fans to turn their attention to Floyd Mayweather, with questions on whether the fight will finally happen or not.
It seems that the fight will not only happen just once, but possibly, twice. The Mayweather camp has released demands on the super bout with a date set in May 2015. The clause however, dictates that if Mayweather loses the match, a rematch will be set on September the same year.
The clause was revealed by Pacquiao's trainer himself, Freddie Roach, who reviewed the prospects of the match before flying back from China. more >>

While Tim Tebow, 27, has been selected by People magazine as one of 2014's Sexiest Men Alive, he admits that being deemed attractive is not his focus.
"Of course I want to look nice and have a good appearance, but more than the outer shell, I want people to want to be around me for my heart," he told People. "To me, it's especially important to have a heart for kids who are hurting. Being able to make a difference is something that people should love, and that's something that's sexy about people."
The evangelical Christian football star turned SEC college football analyst, has made work with his Tim Tebow foundation a priority. The foundation builds playrooms in children's hospitals all over the world, grants sick children's wishes and works to aid in the process of adoption. more >>
