There's been no let-up for United States international Sergino Dest since he signed for Barcelona one month ago and his baptism of fire continues with Wednesday's Champions League game against Italian champions Juventus.Dest, who turns 20 next week, made his Barca debut as a substitute against Sevilla just three days after signing at the start of October and then started matches against Getafe and Ferencvaros. At the weekend, he became the first American to feature in the Clasico, playing 90 minutes at right-back as Barca were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid at Camp Nou.- Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN+ (U.S. only) - Insider Notebook: No Sanchez-style pay bump for PogbaThere is no time to dwell on that defeat, though, with Ronald Koeman's side in action this week in Turin as their attention switches back to European football.

Cristiano Ronaldo can eat 6 meals and take 5 naps in 'a typical day' — Here's what his routine looks like
Sports

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most accomplished athletes on the planet.What's his secret? Lots of food and lots of sleep, apparently.The five-time Ballon d'Or winner and renowned Juventus striker can eat up to six meals and take five naps in a single "typical" day, according to ESPNFC and AS.Ronaldo is known to start his days with ham and cheese and a side of yogurt for breakfast. When he gets hungry a little later in the day, the 35-year-old likes to snack on avocado toast.He typically eats two lunches and two dinners to fuel the rest of his day. Ronaldo's first lunch of chicken and salad is often followed by fish of some variety — perhaps tuna accompanied by salad, eggs, and olives, per AS. And in the evening, he'll either stick with fish — swordfish, tuna, or braised cod — or switch to some type of meat. The Portuguese international often splits his dinner into two different sittings.

Dodgers hope Gonsolin more than an opener in Game 6
Sports

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Tony Gonsolin found out after Game 2 that he would be starting Game 6 as well for the Los Angeles Dodgers. This time, they plan for the rookie right-hander to be more than an opener with the Dodgers having a chance to clinch their first World Series title since 1988.“Tony's a starting pitcher tomorrow.” manager Dave Roberts said Monday. “I’m going to watch him pitch and then we’ll see what we do after that. ... I want to go as long as he possibly can, that’d be great."Gonsolin went 1 1/3 innings against Tampa Bay in Game 2, a planned bullpen game for the Dodgers. He was the loser after giving up only one run — the one that put the Rays ahead to stay in the 6-4 win — two days after he pitched two innings in relief in the clinching Game 7 of the National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves.

Cormier: Khabib triangle choke was act of mercy
Sports

Khabib Nurmagomedov closed out his MMA career in style Saturday with a victory and, according to his teammate, an act of compassion.Nurmagomedov successfully defended his UFC lightweight championship by finishing Justin Gaethje with a second-round triangle. He used that submission rather than the armbar he initially had set up, American Kickboxing Academy training partner Daniel Cormier said on Monday, because Nurmagomedov did not want to injure Gaethje in front of Gaethje's parents."He told me when he was watching the interviews over the course of the week, he saw that Justin said that he would never tap," Cormier, who was an analyst on the UFC 254 telecast, told ESPN's Ariel Helwani on the DC & Helwani program. "He was going to do the armbar, but he had heard Justin saying all week that he would never tap, and he didn't want to hurt him in front of his parents. So he went to the triangle and just kind of put him to sleep."

Sports

Cam Newton was benched in the second half of Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers after struggling once again, but that does not mean he is losing his job to Jarrett Stidham. Bill Belichick made it clear after the 33-6 loss that Newton is still the New England Patriots’ starting quarterback, and the coach reiterated it on Monday.Belichick said Sunday that Newton will “absolutely” remain the starting QB heading into Week 8. During his Monday appearance on WEEI, he praised Newton for being the best player on the roster at his position and said there “other problems offensively.”Newton completed 9-of-15 passes for 98 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the 33-6 loss. He also threw two picks against the Denver Broncos last week, giving him five interceptions and no touchdowns over his past two games. The Patriots are reportedly looking to make a significant move before the trade deadline, but Newton needs to play much better.

Cowboys shopping DE Everson Griffen?

The Cowboys are still only a half-game back in the race for the NFC East and could move into sole possession of first place with a win this weekend, but might they be packing it in already? Dallas has “made it known” that veteran defensive end Everson Griffen is available for trade, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweets.Rapoport’s tweet makes it sound as if the Cowboys are looking to unload the roughly half of his $6 million salary left on the books to a contending team. It’s perhaps the biggest sign yet of just how disastrous things have gotten for the Cowboys in such a short amount of time. Just a few weeks ago, the notion of the Cowboys being sellers at the trade deadline would’ve been unfathomable.

Jon Gruden makes bold claim about Raiders’ handling of coronavirus
Sports

The Raiders have had their share of issues with COVID-19 this season, but coach Jon Gruden clearly thinks Las Vegas' handling of the virus has been exemplary.Members of the Raiders have received multiple fines for failing to follow the NFL’s safety protocols. Offensive lineman Trent Brown recently tested positive for the virus, and the Raiders briefly had to isolate their entire offensive line as a result.Gruden, however, was quick to point out that the Raiders are far from the only team to have a positive test. Then he made an even bolder claim about the Raiders' handling of the virus.“As an organization, we are on the cutting edge of beating the virus,” Gruden said, via Vic Tafur of The Athletic.
