MADRID Wholesale Vegas Golden Knights Jersey , Nov. 22 (Xinhua) -- Goals from much criticized attacking duo of Antoine Griezmann and Kevin Gameiro kept Atletico Madrid's slim hopes of reaching the last 16 of the Champions League alive on Wednesday night with a 2-0 win at home to Roma.
Griezmann had been booed off the pitch during Atletico's 0-0 draw at home to Real Madrid on Saturday night, but he shut a few mouths with a spectacular overhead kick to open the scoring with 20 minutes remaining.
Roma were reduced to 10 men when Bruno Peres was sent off for a second yellow card with seven minutes remaining and Gameiro sealed Atletico's win with a finish into an empty net from a narrow angle two minutes later.
Atletico coach Diego Simeone lost right back Juanfran Torres through injury before kick off with Jose Gimenez stepping into the side, while Augusto Fernandez made his first start since a serious knee injury in place of Gabi Fernandez and Fernando Torres also began his first game in the group stage.
In reality the game seemed to produce little excitement among Atletico fans and it was the lowest entrance in the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium to watch what was in reality a rather dull affair in which both sides struggled to create chances; partly because Roma knew a draw would see them into the next round, while Atletico had failed to score more than one goal in each of their last 10 matches.
Augusto did see a 25 yard shot hit the back of the Roma net in the first half Wholesale Winnipeg Jets Jersey , but it was ruled out because of a previous handball.
Nevertheless Griezmann's goal gave Atletico a lifeline, although the odds are still against the Spanish side who need to win away to Chelsea and hope that Roma fail to claim a home win against minnows Qarabag in the last group game to reach the last 16.
Elsewhere Ernesto Valverde rested Leo Messi and saw how Barca assured first place in their group with a 0-0 draw away to Juventus.

BEIRUT, Nov. 20 (Xinhua) -- Arab League (AL) Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit stressed Monday that "nobody wanted to harm Lebanon," after the Arab League's Cairo meeting on Sunday that links Lebanon's Hezbollah to terrorism.
He made the remarks following meeting with Lebanese President Michel Aoun Wholesale Vancouver Canucks Jersey , explaining "the circumstances" that led to the AL's fresh resolution from the urgent meeting.
He said the resolution was adopted by the committee formed by the AL over the Iranian question, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain Wholesale Toronto Maple Leafs Jersey , and the UAE.
Aboul Ghiet said, following meeting with Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, that Lebanon will not be a battleground for clashes between Iran and Arab states.
"This is certain. No one accuses the Lebanese government of terrorism, but one of its participating parties is accused of this Wholesale Tampa Bay Lightning Jersey ," he added.
He noted that Lebanon could exert pressure on "this party" to encourage it not to intervene in regional affairs.
Several tweets from Aoun's official Twitter account said he also told Aboul Gheit that Lebanon cannot accept the suggestion of its government being a partner in terrorist acts.
He also said the position taken by Lebanon's delegate to the Arab League on Sunday represented the national will, likely referring to Antoine Azzam's objection to the designation of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
During the meeting, Aoun had reportedly told Aboul Gheit that Lebanon is not responsible for Arab or regional conflicts, nor does it attack anyone Wholesale St. Louis Blues Jersey , and therefore it is not acceptable for Lebanon to pay the price for these conflicts with its security or political stability.
Aboul Gheit again denied that there had been attempts to indict the Lebanese government for Hezbollah's actions, saying that "everyone understands the particularities of Lebanon's system" and that no one wanted to harm the country.
The secretary-general presided over the emergency meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Cairo Sunday, which was called for by Saudi Arabia to discuss Iran's "violations" in the region.
It was only the 12th such session to be held since the organization's founding in 1945.
Aboul Gheit announced that the Arab states had agreed to designate Hezbollah a terrorist organization in a summary of the resolution at a news conference following a closed session.
Lebanon objected to articles 4, 6 and 9 of the resolution pertaining to the designation of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
I firmly believe that table tennis is one of the most fun indoor games that man has invented. You get the drama and excitement of a full-scale tennis in the comfort of your home. Well Wholesale San Jose Sharks Jersey , maybe not, but you get the idea. Besides, you do not have to put up with all the problems inherent in "real" tennis. Annoying ball fetchers, the rules on noise levels Wholesale Pittsburgh Penguins Jersey , advertisers french, and all the grunting never seem to be questions about the small courtyard.
Table tennis can be a great game for a day, but not the first. Ping-pong is generally not the best icebreaker. You do not always want to know how a coordinated is a person before you decide whether you want as a person. Also, nothing says "I really like and you want to know if we can be more friends" quite like a bullet in the eye with a little plastic ball. Trust me Wholesale Philadelphia Flyers Jersey , it can happen to you too.
This May also be a bad idea if you are a very competitive person. Table tennis is like volleyball, it's not fun to play unless the person you play with at least as good as you are.
