MADRID -- Atletico Madrid reached the knockout stage of the Champions League after Antoine Griezmann pounced in stoppage time to score his second goal of the night and seal a dramatic 2-1 victory over Russian side Rostov on Tuesday. Air Max 90 Cheap Sale .Griezmann grabbed the winner for last seasons runners-up when a hopeful long pass was headed on by a Rostov defender, and the France forward managed to toe the ball into the net off the underside of the crossbar.The referee awarded the goal after speaking to his linesman, apparently to make sure the ball was headed back by a Rostov player, which meant Griezmann was not off-side when he made contact.Atletico now leads Group D with a maximum 12 points from four games.Bayern Munich has nine points after beating PSV Eindhoven 2-1 in the other group match. Rostov and PSV both have one point.Griezmanns opening goal in the 28th-minute was an acrobatic beauty. And it too came from an unintentional assist by a Rostov player.Seeing Yannick Carrascos pass headed back toward the goal by a defender, the striker pivoted in the air and used his left shin to lift the ball over goalkeeper Soslan Dzhanaez.Rostov equalized two minutes later through Sardar Azmoun and the Champions League debutant was clinging on to the point despite being pinned down for the entire second half until Griezmanns late strike.They made it tough for us, but the most important thing is that we got the three points, Griezmann said. We are top of the group and have two games left. We want to finish as group leaders.Griezmann, who was critical to Atleticos run to last seasons final, took his overall goal tally to eight for this campaign. The two goals were his first in this seasons Champions League.The Rostov goal that ruined goalkeeper Jan Oblaks run of three clean sheets in Europe was the result of two errors- first a bad pass, followed by poor marking -- that are uncharacteristic of a team coached by Diego Simeone.But Simeones criticism was only for his own coaching decisions, without specifying his mistakes.As coach, I didnt have a good game, Simeone said. My players did. I made bad decisions, but my players pulled it out the best way possible, with pride.--- This story has been corrected to show the last name of the Rostov scorer is Azmoun, not Armoun. Air Max 90 Sale Usa .

OAKVILLE, Ontario -- Dustin Johnson made a 10-foot eagle putt on the par-5 18th hole Thursday for a 6-under 66 and a share of the Canadian Open lead with Luke List.My game feels good, Johnson said.

In windy conditions at sun-baked Glen Abbey, he also had seven birdies and drove into the water on the par-4 14th en route to a double bogey.I drove it in the fairway a bunch. That was definitely very helpful, Johnson said. The conditions were tough. The wind was blowing pretty hard. I felt like I played really well. I just made one bad swing on 14, just didnt quite commit to the shot I was hitting. Then I got a little unlucky for it to go in the water there. But other than that, I thought I played really, really nicely all day long.He played the three back-nine par-5 holes in 4 under.I like this golf course, said Johnson, ranked second in the world. I think it sets up well for me. I like it off the tee. The conditions are really tough right now. The greens are really firm, but they are rolling really nicely. So if you get some good looks at it, you can hole some putts.List birdied all four par 5s in a round he closed with seven pars.I was happy with that, List said, With my length, I tried to get it in play off the tee and have a smart iron into the par 5s. If I can play them 4 under every day all week, that would be great. ... The rough is down this year, which makes for if youre hitting your driver relatively straight, you can take advantage of it and get some wedges out there.Canadian amateur Jared du Toit was a stroke back along with former Arizona State teammate Jon Rahm, Chesson Hadley and Kelly Kraft. Coming off his junior season for the Sun Devils, du Toit holed out with an 8-iron for eagle on the par-4 17th and birdied 18.I was pretty disappointed with myself for not birdieing 16 and followed it up withh a very poor drive on 17, said du Toit, from Kimberley, British Columbia. Air Max 90 Womens Sale.

I didnt even know it went in.He was popular with the home fans.Well, its the first time Ive had to sign autographs after rounds, du Toit said. That was awesome. Definitely a lot of fun. Its definitely in the top three kind of rounds Ive played my career, just kind of feeling-wise and atmosphere.Brandt Snedeker, the 2013 winner at Glen Abbey, had a 68 to match Brendon de Jonge, Steve Wheatcroft and Cameron Tringale.I made some key putts through the course of the round, Snedeker said. Didnt drive it great today, but kind of used my head around the golf course, leave it in the right spots. Greens are so firm, youve just got to get it on the green somewhere.Top-ranked defending champion Jason Day was in the group at 69.If you miss the fairway, youre pretty much done, theres no chance of keeping it on the green, Day said. My mentality is just trying to get it up there as far as I can. As long I can just keep driving it straight, try to get up there somewhere around the green, if I miss it then Ive got a wedge in my hand and hopefully I can hit it high and get it stuck on the green.Garrett Rank, the Canadian amateur who works as a professional hockey referee, also opened with a 69. The Ontario player holed an eagle putt from the fringe on 18. He played alongside du Toit.Not that it makes it feel like an amateur tournament, but you know that someone else is kind of feeling the same way as you are, Rank said about du Toit. Definitely we get along great. First time Ive ever played with him, but I met him a couple times.Mike Weir had a 78.
