Mathieu Valbuena 'very, very disappointed' with Karim Benzema

Lyon coach Hubert Fournier talks about Matheiu Valbuena's legal case ahead of his side's Ligue 1 derby against St Etienne.

Lyon winger Mathieu Valbuena has expressed his disappointment in Karim Benzema over the Real Madrid striker's alleged role in an attempt to blackmail him.

Earlier this month, Benzema, 27, was charged with conspiracy to blackmail as part of an investigation into an attempt to extort funds from 31-year-old Valbuena, a France international teammate, using a sex tape.

Wiretap evidence has been gathered in the case, and Benzema is suspected of acting as an intermediary on behalf of a childhood friend....

Valenciennes' David Le Frapper gets two-match ban for sexist ref rant

David Le Frapper
Le Frapper's comments were not well-received by the league's disciplinary committee despite his apology.

Valenciennes manager David Le Frapper must serve a two-game match day ban as a result of his sexist remarks about a female referee.

Le Frapper, 44, was widely condemned earlier this month after hitting out at Stephanie Frappart following her decision not to award his side a penalty during a Ligue 2 match against Laval.

"Apparently there's a penalty but she didn't see it or she was too far away," he said following the game. "She was doing ice-skating before... I don't know."

The Valenciennes...

UEFA orders Ukraine to play home game behind closed doors after racism

Ukraine's game against Spain in October was marred by racism in the stands.

Ukraine have been ordered to play a game behind closed doors as part of a UEFA punishment for racist behaviour by fans at last month's European Championship qualifier against Spain.

UEFA fined Ukraine €97,000 for the racist behaviour and separate charges including offensive chanting and the use of a laser pointer during the match, which Spain won 1-0.

Ukraine already have to play their first 2018 World Cup qualifier behind closed doors because of a FIFA punishment for racism dating from 2013.

Tottenham are adding steel to their style, says midfielder Ryan Mason

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop believe Tottenham have to focus on their encounter against Chelsea.
The ESPN FC crew talk potential of young England stars, selling Sturridge, and more.

Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason has said he believes the side are striking the right balance between flowing football and midfield steel this season.

Mauricio Pochettino's team are fifth in the Premier League and unbeaten in the league since losing at Manchester United on the opening day of the season.

MLS Cup playoff forecast: Semis, final projections, plus match previews

The ESPN FC panel discuss whether or not FC Dallas will be able to overcome their 3-1 first leg deficit against Portland.

The MLS conference championships conclude on Sunday, with both top seeds trailing by two goals heading home for the second legs.

Since MLS went to two-leg playoff series in 2003, 12 teams have lost the first leg by exactly two goals. Seven of those dozen teams were down two goals heading home, as New York and FC Dallas are this year.

Of those seven teams, two overcame the deficit to advance: 2004 Kansas City versus San Jose and 2003 San Jose versus Los Angeles. One caveat here, particularly for FC Dallas, is that 2014 was the first season in which MLS used away goals as a tiebreaker for playoff series.

So what chances do FC Dallas and New York have of overcoming their two-goal deficits? And what are factors to watch in the second legs? This edition of the MLS Forecaster explores those questions and more using ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI).
