MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester City and Borussia Moenchengladbach built on commanding first-leg advantages to cruise through the Champions League playoffs on Wednesday, while Russian side Rostov thrashed Ajax 4-1 to reach the group stage for the first time.City will play a sixth straight season in Europes elite competition after beating Steaua Bucharest 1-0 thanks to Fabian Delphs 56th-minute goal and completing a 6-0 win on aggregate. Goalkeeper Joe Hart made what could be his last start for City after losing his regular place under new coach Pep Guardiola.We have a top manager that the club has wanted a long, long time, and hes going to have his opinion on things, said Hart, who was given a rousing reception by City fans and appeared emotional during and at the end of the match.Its a place I love to be, he added, but situations occur in football. Were men, we get on with it.Raffael and Thorgan Hazard scored hat tricks as Moenchengladbach routed Young Boys 6-1 for a 9-2 win on aggregate, sealing an immediate return to the group stage for the German side.Both Germany and England will have a full quota of four teams in Thursdays draw. City, a semifinalist last season, will be one of the second seeds.Rostov advanced 5-2 on aggregate over Ajax -- a four-time European champion -- in its first season trying to qualify for the Champions League. FC Copenhagen is back in the group stage for the second time in four years, after scoring an 86th-minute equalizer to draw 1-1 with APOEL and progress 2-1 on aggregate.Dinamo Zagreb was the last team to go through, beating Salzburg 2-1 after extra time to advance 3-2 on aggregate. The Croatian team equalized in the 87th minute through Junior Fernandes to take the match to extra time before El Arabi Hilal Soudani grabbed the winner in the 95th minute.City did the damage with a 5-0 win in Romania last week, allowing Guardiola to rest most of his first-choice players including Sergio Aguero -- the scorer of a first-leg hat trick.In an exercise in damage limitation, Steaua played with 10 men behind the ball and limited City to half chances until Jesus Navas cross for Delph to head home.City lost striker Kelechi Iheanacho to injury in the second half, but the game was overshadowed by Harts appearance in goal and emotional scenes after the final whistle when he grabbed the badge on his jersey and saluted the crowd. Hart bit his lip at one stage in the second half when City fans chanted his name.City is close to purchasing goalkeeper Claudio Bravo from Barcelona, which likely would spell the end of Harts decade-long career at Etihad Stadium. Guardiola doesnt think Hart is good enough with his feet, has told the England international he can leave, and has played Willy Caballero ahead of Hart so far this season.I know he is a legend for this club, Guardiola said. But I am here to take decisions. I make a lot of mistakes -- my decisions as a coach are sometimes good, sometimes bad, but I take decisions.I try to be honest with myself. I cant deny what I feel. I was honest with Joe, the club and all the players in the squad. The people must follow me.Hart gave little away about his future, saying: Outside of the charade and all the rubbish thats talked, we are dealing it like men inside, and we are going to come up with a solution.Told he had a 100 percent pass completion record on the night, Hart laughed and said: Pigs do fly, dont they?

Nike NBA Jerseys 2020 . PETERSBURG, Fla. Soccer Jerseys 2020 .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. ATHENS, Ga. -- Auburns championship dreams disappeared in a deluge of three-and-outs.Rodrigo Blankenship kicked two fourth-quarter field goals, Maurice Smith returned an interception for a touchdown and Georgias defense shut down No. 8 Auburn in the second half to beat the Tigers 13-7 on Saturday.The loss ended Auburns Southeastern Conference championship hopes and knocked the Tigers out of consideration for a spot in the playoff.Auburn (7-3, 5-2 SEC, No. 9 CFP) had been in control of its hopes to win the SECs Western Division, with one conference game remaining at No. 1 Alabama. Instead, Alabama clinched the division.Auburn was held to 32 yards with no first downs in the second half, and 164 yards overall.The offense didnt get it done today. Its a simple as that, said Auburn coach Gus Malzahn, who said he stuck with struggling quarterback Sean White because Sean is our guy.Georgia held the ball about 39 minutes, almost doubling Auburns time of possession.The Tigers couldnt overcome the loss of star running back Kamryn Pettway , the nations No. 4 rusher who hurt his left leg on a long run in last weeks win over Vanderbilt. Pettway was with the team but not in uniform.This is the SEC. People get hurt, said Kerryon Johnson, who filled in for Pettway. Thats no excuse for us to not have a productive day. We just got outplayed.Malzahn said an undisclosed injury prevented White from throwing in practice for the second straight week.White couldnt find a passing game to complement Johnsons 99 yards rushing, including a 3-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. White completed only 6 of 20 passes for 27 yards with an interception.Georgia (6-4, 4-4) earned its biggest win under first-year coach Kirby Smart. The Bulldogs controlled the clock on two fourth-quarter field goal drives of 13 and 14 plays.We told ourselves a few weeks ago we were going to run the ball and we were going to be successful, said Georgia running back Nick Chubb, who had 23 carries for 101 yards.Jacob Eason completed 20 of 31 passes for 208 yards without an interception.After Blankenships 21-yard field goal with 2:25 remaining, Auburn was stopped on four downs, triggeriing a celebration in the stands and on Georgias sideline.ddddddddddddBlankenship, the Georgia walk-on kicker who wears black-rimmed glasses under his helmet, barely cleared the cross bar on his 45-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter for a 10-7 lead. Blankenship was short on a 49-yard attempt about three minutes later before kicking a 21-yarder late in the game.Auburn had only 25 yards passing in the first half and opened the second half with three straight passing plays -- two incompletions and a third-down pass intercepted by Smith and returned 34 yards for a tying touchdown.He looked like a receiver on the play, Smart said.THE TAKEAWAYAuburn: The Tigers likely will be headed for a sharp drop in the Top 25. The inability to compensate for Pettways injury revealed Auburns lack of offensive balance and inability to retain its spot as a championship or playoff contender.HAPPY RETURNAuburn strong safety Tray Matthews, who began his career at Georgia before he was dismissed from the team in 2014, delivered the key defensive play of the first half. Matthews picked off a pass from receiver Terry Godwin, who took the snap in the wildcat formation, in the end zone for his first interception of the season.Auburn took advantage of the turnover with an 80-play touchdown drive capped by Johnsons 3-yard scoring run.FAMILIAR RIVALSmith transferred to Georgia from Alabama, Auburns top rival.The team I am with right now, we have been counted out, and for us to get this win is big, Smith said. This makes it definitely worthwhile. Its a blessing. For me to be part of this team and be able to help the team, I just love it.UP NEXTAuburn: The Tigers will play their final home game against Alabama A&M next Saturday as they hope to gain momentum for their Nov. 26 game at Alabama.Georgia: Georgia hosts Louisiana Lafayette next Saturday before closing its season with another home game against in-state rival Georgia Tech on Nov. 26.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-Top25 ' ' '
