MADRID, Spain -- No Cristiano Ronaldo? No problem. Javier Mascherano Barcelona Jersey . Real Madrids title ambitions continue to gain credence, with the Spanish giant showing no dip despite missing the Ballon dOr winner. Ronaldo has one more league game to serve from a three-match ban, and cannot return before next weeks Champions League game at Schalke. No matter, as Madrid stretched its unbeaten run to 25 games in all competitions with a comprehensive 3-0 victory at Getafe on Sunday. With and without Ronaldo, Madrid under coach Carlo Ancelotti has looked the more consistent, well-balanced team following a poor start to the campaign, with co-Spanish leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid enduring erratic runs of late. Gareth Bale has excelled when not nagged by injuries, while players like Luka Modric, Karim Benzema and Jese Rodriguez have been standouts. "I think the key to our success is that the team is unified," fullback Dani Carvajal said on Monday. "Everyone is contributing to the smallest detail, whether they are playing little or a lot." Jese has scored in five of his last six games, and has been slotted instantly into the attack whenever Ronaldo or Bale have been out. Spanish media are already touting the Spain Under-21 standout for a place in world champion Spains squad despite the rich attacking talent that includes Alvaro Negredo, Fernando Llorente, Diego Costa, and Fernando Torres. "Im not surprised by his play because hes playing great matches and scoring," Ancelotti said. "Weve already said a lot of good things about him, I just hope he keeps up like this." Ancelottis arrival has been a major boost for Madrid following the bitter exit of Jose Mourinho, who left following his worst season as a coach when the Portuguese manager had more success in creating divisions within his own club than his opponents schemes. Ancelotti has brought order to one of the worlds most expensive and talented stock of players and egos, perhaps better than any other Madrid coach since Vicente del Bosque. "No one gets upset with him, he is very transparent. Hes the same person you see at his news conferences," Carvajal said. "Hes maintained harmony inside the team, while keeping us all on our toes. He never tries to create problems." Ancelotti has stuck with goalkeeper Diego Lopez over Iker Casillas, who has assumed Champions League and Copa del Rey duties. That seems to have squashed the controversy as Madrid reached the domestic cup final without Casillas conceding a single goal. "Ive got two great goalkeepers, so I dont know if the situation is fair or not," the Italian coach said, "but its been a good means to motivating them both." While Ronaldo will miss Saturdays match against Elche, his teammates will be looking forward to his return regardless of their run. "Hes a player that should always be in the lineup," Lopez said. "Were lucky that we have other players who can step in but you always note the absence of a player of Cristianos quality." Sandro Ramirez Jersey .

WINNIPEG -- Glenn Howard played a game that was memorable for all the wrong reasons at the Canadian curling trials Tuesday night. The four-time world champion from Penetanguishene, Ont., allowed 2010 Olympic gold medallist Kevin Martin to score four in the ninth end in a 9-7 come-from-behind victory. "Thats the worse loss of my life, right there," said Howard, 51, whos also won four Briers. The victory lifted Martins record to 4-0, keeping the Edmonton skip as one of only two undefeated rinks at the trials, which will determine Canadas mens and womens teams at next years Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Howards rink drops to 1-3. Reigning Canadian champion Brad Jacobs from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., has also yet to lose a game after he beat Calgarys Kevin Koe 9-4. Koe is at the bottom of the field with a 0-4 record, while hometown favourite Jeff Stoughton is 1-3 following an 11-5 loss to B.C.s John Morris (3-1). Mike McEwen, Manitobas other mens rink, defeated Torontos John Epping 10-7. McEwen improved to 2-2 and Epping is 1-3. "Its just hard out there," Martin said after a game he described as making him feel "spent." "Its a very emotional day, and games. Every one so far, all four, have just been battles to the last inch." Just over 7,430 fans at the MTS Centre witnessed Howards defeat, which the veteran said came at the hands of some unpredictable ice. That was especially true in the ninth end, when Martin scored the deadly four points to move ahead 8-7. "(Second) Brent (Laing) missed a peel and then the ice got unbelievably straight in the last two or three ends," Howard explained. &qquot;I threw a real good shot in my last one in nine and for some reason it didnt curl. Neymar JR Jersey. I have no idea why. "I was happy with the way I let it go and it ends up being six to eight inches too much ice, which is unreal. Why? Why doesnt it curl there?" The killer in Koe and Jacobs game was the eighth end, when Jacobs was sitting four and Koe, the 2010 world champion, had the hammer and missed. The steal of four ended the match. Competitors have said this week its doubtful any team will go undefeated, and Jacobs was still believing that. "Obviously, anybody can beat anyone out there and its happening," said Jacobs, 28, who got his spot in Winnipeg out of the pre-trials event. "Everyone sees it, so real tough to go undefeated. I totally agree with that statement. Its virtually impossible, Id say, but there is a slight chance and right now were undefeated." Stoughton was discouraged after his loss, which included a bad fourth end. He flashed on his first throw and his second hit a Morris rock and then rolled out. That left Jim Cotter a draw to anywhere in the 12-foot for three and a 4-2 lead. Morris is skip, but throws third rocks. Stoughton looked mad at himself and briefly left the ice. He also failed to blank an end and then Morris went up 6-3 with a deuce in the sixth. "We need a lot of help, and thats too bad," said Stoughton, a 2011 world champion whos making his fifth and last try to get to an Olympics. "We had our fate in our own hands playing John because it would have brought everyone down to two losses and (then) youre basically in a playoff spot." Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
