Euro 2020: Round of 16 schedule and fixtures



The Euro 2020 group stage came to a thrilling end on Wednesday as it went down to the final whistle to decide who will play in the round of 16.

Portugal and France played out an entertaining 2-2 draw on the final group stage matchday, and Germany did just about enough to ensure qualification as the second placed team from Group F, which was dubbed the group of death.

Germany finished second in Group F, and that has earned them a clash against old foes England. The Three Lions topped their group, finishing ahead of Croatia and the Czech Republic.

Croatia will face Spain in the round of 16, as Luis Enrique’s side finished second in Group E behind Sweden. The impressive Swedes have earned a very winnable round of 16 tie against Ukraine, who finished third in Group C.

The winners of Group C, the Netherlands, will face the Czech Republic. The Dutch will look to continue their impressive form at Euro 2020.

All eyes will be on Italy — who have been one of the most impressive teams at Euro 2020 so far — when they face Austria in their round of 16 tie. The Italians topped Group A with three wins, finishing ahead of Wales and Switzerland.

Wales have been rewarded with a mouth-watering clash against Denmark, who finished second in Group B despite losing twice. Denmark finished behind Belgium, who will face Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal in their knockout tie.

Defending champions France topped Group F, and will face Switzerland in their round-of-16 clash. Switzerland finished third in Group A and made it as one of the best third-placed teams in the competition.

MLB trade grade: Brewers acquire Daniel Norris from Tigers



Daniel Norris trade for the Brewers is nothing to phone home about

Milwaukee supporters sure were hoping for some better news, as Norris is currently sporting a 5.83 ERA this season. That’s not the kind of production you want from a reliever, which is why the Brewers receive a C grade for this deal.

Meanwhile, for Detroit, they’re getting a B+ for moving Norris. In return, Tigers beat writer Jason Beck is reporting Detroit is receiving 21-year-old pitching prospect, Reese Olson.

Blue Jays acquiring Twins ace Jose Berrios for Martin, Woods Richardson



The Toronto Blue Jays made a big splash hours before Friday’s MLB Trade Deadline, acquiring right-handed starter Jose Berrios from the Minnesota Twins, Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith confirms.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was first to report the agreement.

Nicholson-Smith reports that the Blue Jays are sending No. 2 prospect Austin Martin and No. 4 prospect Simeon Woods Richardson to the Twins in the trade.

Berrios, who is under team control through the 2022 season, was one of the most sought-after starters on the trade market. He has 3.48 ERA and 126 strikeouts in 20 starts for the Twins this season. The two-time All-Star has spent his entire six-year career with the Twins and outside his rookie season he has never had an ERA above 4.00.

The move gives the Blue Jays a third ace starter to join Robbie Ray, Alek Manoah and Cy Young finalist Hyun-Jin Ryu. It also is the latest blockbuster move in the AL East arms race after the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays all made trades in recent days to add power bats to their lineups.

The Blue Jays enter play Friday, their first home game at the Rogers Centre in nearly two years, fourth in the division with a 51-48 record. They are 9.5 games back of the Red Sox for first in the division and 4.5 games out a wild card spot.
