Neymar nets hat-trick, Barca hit Celtic for six
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 17:24:51 -0500
Neymar scored his first Barcelona hat-trick as the Catalans secured top spot in Group H of the Champions League with a 6-1 thrashing of Celtic at the Camp Nou on Wednesday. Gerard Pique got the hosts off to the perfect start when he slammed home from close range after Celtic keeper Fraser Forster had done well to deny Alexis Sanchez. Neymar then produced a magical piece of skill to ghost past Efe Ambrose to set up Pedro for the second and rounded off a fine team move with the simplest of finishes to make it 3-0 a minute before half-time. Cristian Tello made it 6-0 with a deflected strike 18 minutes from time before Georgios Samaras pulled one back for the Scottish champions.
U.S. lawmakers warn of sanctions if Ukraine violence worsens
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 17:24:42 -0500
By Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. lawmakers are considering legislation to deny visas to Ukrainian officials or freeze their U.S. assets if there is an escalation of violence against anti-government demonstrators. Both Democrats and Republicans have condemned harsh measures during weeks of protests by hundreds of thousands of people protesting President Viktor Yanukovich's decision to scrap a trade deal with the European Union and steer Ukraine closer to Russia. "We're going to be watching Yanukovich's conduct very carefully," said Democratic Senator Chris Murphy, chairman of the Senate's Europe subcommittee. "His conduct over the last 24 hours is unacceptable, and if he continues to use bulldozers and batons to break up peaceful demonstrations, there could be consequences, real consequences, from the Congress," Murphy told Reuters.

Grosskreutz strikes late to send Dortmund through
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 17:22:33 -0500
A late goal by Kevin Grosskreutz gave last season's beaten finalists Borussia Dortmund a 2-1 win over 10-man Marseille and the victory they needed to reach the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday. Dortmund won Group F, but Grosskreutz's goal meant misery for Napoli, who beat Arsenal 2-0 in Italy to finish in a three-way tie on 12 points atop the section, only to miss out because of an inferior head-to-head record with the other two teams. Dortmund caught the Marseille defence napping as early as the fourth minute as Marco Reus found Robert Lewandowski, who turned Lucas Mendes before rifling the ball past Steve Mandanda.
