MALAGA, Spain -- Malaga eased to a dominant 2-0 win at home over Villarreal on Monday to take a big step toward ensuring both its place in Spains topflight next season and coach Bernd Schusters job. Malagas stout defence limited Villarreal to just one shot on goal, even after the host went down to 10 men for the final 15 minutes when Nordin Amrabat was shown a direct red for vehemently protesting to the referee. Roque Santa Cruz chipped the ball over goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo from a tight angle to open the scoring in the sixth at La Rosaleda Stadium after the striker was played through by Samuel Sanchez. Amrabat then used his pace to race down the left side and waited for Sergi Darder to arrive unmarked in a second wave before he crossed for the midfielder to fire in their second goal in the 53rd. "Perhaps this was our most well-rounded game of the season," Schuster said. "We played well from the first to the last minute. We werent much better than Villarreal, but we controlled them throughout." After struggling early in Schusters first season in charge, Malaga has come on late and has won five of its last eight games to escape the fight at the bottom and climb into 10th place with four rounds to go. The team is not only playing to avoid a last-minute relegation battle. Schusters job at the Costa del Sol side may depend on the side holding onto a top-10 finish. The German managers contract includes a clause that he can be fired if they finish in 11th place or lower. "It has been a difficult year for everyone, and with these three points we can breathe easier," Schuster said. "This was a key day. We have lifted a weight off us. Now, with less pressure, we can improve." Villarreal forward Giovani Dos Santos returned from a four-week injury layoff when he went on as a second-half substitute. Villarreals loss left it in seventh place and holding onto the last Europa League berth, seven points ahead of Valencia. Atletico Madrid leads the league by four points over Barcelona. Real Madrid is another two points behind but with an extra game to play. Mike Ditka Jersey .C. -- Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe is resigning after 13 seasons at the school.

"Im very pleased to be able to add a quarterback with Adrians experience and skill set," Calgary head coach and general manager John Hufnagel said in a statement. Mitchell Trubisky Womens Jersey . In question is whether 26-year-old Matt Frattin will be on it. A a€?mediocrea€? training camp, as Carlyle put it earlier this week, has Frattin lingering nervously on the bubble at the end of the exhibition season, pushed out of a likely job by Brandon Kozun, the small, but feisty winger determined to make the NHL for the first time. Dick Butkus Womens Jersey . - The Seattle Sounders busy off-season continues with the team acquiring defender Chad Marshall from the Columbus Crew in exchange for a 2015 third-round pick and allocation money.MONTREAL -- While the Montreal Impact practiced ahead of a key match in the MLS playoff race, scoring leader Marco Di Vaio pedalled a stationary bike on the sidelines. Midfielders Patrice Bernier and Justin Mapp and forward Daniele Paponi also werent on the field Thursday due to minor injuries. Some of them, maybe even all of them, will be ready when the Impact play host to the New England Revolution on Saturday afternoon, but how much they can play might only be determined on the day of the game. "Right now I cant say," said coach Marco Schallibaum. "But we have a couple of days. "The good news is that Alessandro (Nesta) can play. As for Marco, Patrice and Justin, well know after practice (on Friday), but Im confident to have at least two out of three of them. But even if we dont have this player or that player I think we have enough talent to win the match." The club will also be without its two workhorse fullbacks. Jeb Brovsky, who has played all 30 games this season, is expected to miss the next three with a broken toe, while Hassoun Camara will serve a one-game suspension for accumulating five yellow cards. Schallibaum hopes Brovsky can return for the final regular-season game Oct. 26 in Toronto and be ready for the playoffs. On the plus side, Nesta is due to return after missing two games with a groin problem, and midfielder Hernan Bernardello is also back after missing more than a month with a sprained ankle. Di Vaio, who leads MLS with 19 goals, had to leave a 1-0 loss in Houston on Friday night, but hopes to be ready to face the Revolution. "It started in the warmup," the 37-year-old said. "I played because I wanted to help the team, but it was difficult and I wasnt able to continue. "But I did the physiotherapy and now I feel a lot better and Im confident I can play Saturday." Bernier sat out for the first time this season in Houston with a hip problem, but he is also lookinng to play.dddddddddddd "I feel good," he said. "Im training to be ready. "I didnt play last Friday so that I would be able to play this game. Whether I come off the bench or Im (starting), I dont know. Its not my decision. But my main goal is to at least be ready mentally and physically." Bernier took the field near the end of the practice to kick the ball with for a few minutes with his teammates, but Mapp only ran laps. The injuries have the club limping into a match that could have big playoff implications. The Impact (13-10-7) are fourth in the Eastern conference with 46 points, seven points behind New York, six behind Kansas City and two behind Houston, but with two games in hand on all three rivals. But they are only one point ahead of Philadelphia and three ahead of sixth-place Chicago. The three points for a win wouldnt clinch anything, but it would put them ahead of Houston and keep their pursuers at bay. They travel to Los Angeles on Wednesday, then return home to face Philadelphia on Oct. 19. In MLS, the top three teams in each conference go directly to the conference semifinals, while the fourth and fifth-place teams face each other for the right to face the first-place team. With Brovsky out, Maxim Tissot is expected to start at left back. Captain Davy Arnaud, normally a midfielder, will likely fill in for Camara on the right side. Arnaud played some right back last season. Central defender Nelson Rivas, who has yet to play this season due to a knee injury, has finally resumed practising with the team, but is not expected to suit up. Arnaud was in the spotlight this week after the Nederland, Texas, native gave his first television interview in French. He did well, too. The 33-year-old has been studying the language since joining the Impact last season. Arnauds ancestors spoke the Cajun French of Louisiana, but he said his great-grandmother was the last in the family to speak it. ' ' '
