PARIS - Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out for the match against Barcelona, and Paris Saint-Germain must find a way to cope without him. Dan Marino Womens Jersey .Ibrahimovic, the French leagues top scorer over the past two seasons, has been ruled out of Tuesdays Champions League match with a left heel injury. He missed the last two PSG games because of the injury and coach Laurent Blanc said intensive treatment up until Monday morning failed to resolve the problem.We tried this morning. But in reality Id already started preparing for the match without him, Blanc said. It wont be easy and we know it. We had some difficult games without him last season. The opponents are much more attentive when hes around.PSG has made a sluggish start to the season, drawing six of nine games so far.Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani is expected to lead the attack in his favouredcentre forwards role against a Barcelona team that has yet to concede a goal.Cavani is still short of the form which saw him score 78 goals in 104 games for Napoli before joining PSG for 64 million euros ($81.3 million) last season. The Uruguay striker has been craving a chance to play in his centre forward role, however, and now has a chance to show what he can do on the big stage.But when Ibrahimovic has been missing, PSG has won only 40 per cent of its matches.Its a very important game for us and we need him, PSG left back Maxwell said. Were still lacking in intensity and tomorrow is a good chance for us to show that were still to be reckoned with.Blanc said other players need to step up a level now that Ibrahimovic is not around to bail them out with his spectacular goals.If we dont play well as a team tomorrow its going to be hard, Blanc said. We can compensate for his absence through our teamwork.Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is not concerned either way.It doesnt change anything for us that Zlatan isnt playing, Enrique said. Its obviously a big loss for PSG but our way of playing wont change.Ibrahimovic turns 33 next month and has been picking up injuries more often.He tore a thigh muscle last April and missed the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals against Chelsea, which PSG lost 2-0 to go out on away goals after winning the home leg 3-1.Well see how the injury goes from day to day, Blanc said. The medical staff are doing all they can and well be delighted if we get him back for the Monaco game (on Sunday).Blanc puts PSGs slow start to the season down to a lack of intensity, which his players will certainly need to show more of in order to stop a Barcelona attack led by Lionel Messi and Neymar.Tomorrow well be playing our masters, or almost, given that theyve been playing with this same philosophy of play for 30 years, Blanc said. Its an extraordinary match to take part in. If were determined and aggressive then well do well.But he thinks Barcelonas defence has frailties, despite not conceding a goal.Ive seen all of their games and their opponents had chances in every one, Blanc said. But Barcelona hurt you when theyre on top, they take advantage. Thats what were missing and we have to get that back. Bob Griese Womens Jersey . Villar connected off Joe Saunders (11-14), sending a drive well over the left-field fence for his first career homer. The Astros scored six times in the first three innings to chase Saunders.

RAPTORS STRUGGLING: The bottom line is the true test in sports isnt just how you handle failure, but how you handle success. http://www.shopdolphinsauthenticnfl.com/Youth-Ndamukong-Suh-Elite-Jersey/ . -- The Minnesota Twins have granted relief pitcher Matt Guerrier his unconditional release, making the 35-year-old right-hander a free agent.BARCELONA, Spain -- Osasuna beat Getafe 2-0 at home on Sunday to move four points clear of the Spanish leagues relegation zone, while substitute Humberto Osorio scored twice as Valladolid came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Elche. Also, Real Sociedad was held 0-0 at its Anoeta Stadium by Levante and the inspired form of its goalkeeper, Keylor Navas. Osasunas Oriol Riera opened the scoring in the sixth minute when Francisco Silva spotted his run behind Getafes disjointed defence with a long pass that the striker expertly used one touch to lift over goalkeeper Miguel Moya. Roberto Torres capped the win in Pamplona on the break with two minutes to play. The closest Getafe came to scoring was Angel Lafitas header off the upright in the 34th as it remained winless in eight rounds. Elche went ahead on the waterlogged pitch at Valladolids Jose Zorilla Stadium through goals by Ferran "Coro" Corominas in the 34th and Manuel del Moral in the 66th. Valladolid coach Juan Ignacio Martinez sent on Osorio in the 69th and the forward responded by scoring in the 71st and 78th. DeVante Parker Womens Jersey. Valladolids comeback was undermined when newcomer Jeffren Suarez, recently arrived from Sporting Lisbon, was injured with 10 minutes to play and his team had no substitutions to make. The draw left Valladolid in the drop zone, three points from safety. Levante keeper Navas denied Sociedad forwards Imanol Agirretxe and Antoine Griezmann on two occasions each in the first half before stretching to palm Gonzalo Castros shot over his bar in the 69th. Sociedad stayed in sixth place. It hosts Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semifinals on Tuesday looking to overturn its 2-0 loss in the first leg. "We did enough to win, but Levantes defensive discipline was too much," Sociedad midfielder Markel Bergara said. "Now we have to think about Barcelona. We know it will be tough, but we will give it our all." Later Sunday, Barcelona visits Sevilla looking for a win that would take the defending champions into a three-way tie for the league lead with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
