Hooligan's Daily: Dortmund eliminated, Real Madrid advance in Champions League

Sevilla 3-3 Liverpool
(Ben Yedder 51', PK 60', Pizarro 90+3')-(Firmino 2', 30', Mane 22')

Borussia Dortmund are eliminated from the Champions League after a very disappointing campaign. They have only managed two points so far, both coming against lowly APOEL Nicosia, and they need to get something on the final matchday in order to salvage a trip to the Europa League. Maribor, and APOEL were also knocked out today.

On the flip side of that, Real Madrid and Besiktas sealed places in the round of 16 with their results today.

Continental Tables

MLS Cup Playoffs- Conference Finals First Leg
Columbus Crew SC 0-0 Toronto FC

Crazy scenes at MAPFRE Stadium as Crew fans wavered between supporting the players on the pitch and trashing their ownership and Don Garber during this scoreless draw. #SaveTheCrew banners were everywhere in the sold out crowd as they tried to show there was a love for the team in the city, despite Anthony Precourt's desire to skip town. I can't imagine they escape Toronto with a win, especially with Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco returning from suspension, but I imagine an MLS Cup Final there would be a most bizarre experience, and it wouldn't look good for the league. Part of me wishes it would happen.

Houston Dynamo 0-2 Seattle Sounders
(Svensson 11', Bruin 41')

Headlines
Everton's Oumar Niasse is the first Premier League player charged with "successful deception of a match official" after his dive against Crystal Palace on Saturday. He won a penalty in the 2-2 draw when he appeared to be tripped by Scott Dann, but the FA has ruled it was a blatant dive and he now faces a potential two game ban.

Australia manager Ange Postecoglou abruptly resigned from his post yesterday, less than a week after he led the Socceroos to a World Cup birth. The Australian FA did offer him a new deal that would have kept him through Russia next summer, but he declined the offer and decided to depart. Postecoglou had been in charge since 2013 and won 22 of the 49 matches he managed.
