BERLIN -- Mainz ensured Nurembergs poor start to the Bundesliga continued Friday with a 2-1 win over the visiting side. Mainz midfielder Nicolai Mueller opened the scoring in the 12th minute, when he shrugged off Marvin Plattenhardts challenge before slotting the ball beyond Patrick Rakovsky inside the far post. Nine minutes later, Andreas Ivanschitz sprung the offside trap before rounding the Nuremberg goalkeeper and dinking the ball into the empty net. "We dominated in every area for 30 minutes and then we took the foot off too much," Mainz coach Thomas Tuchel said. Nuremberg had to attack, and Hiroshi Kiyotake drew a good save from Christian Wetklo before Per Nilsson headed wide. The visitors deservedly scored five minutes before halftime, when Nilsson met Kiyotakes free kick with a towering header, but the equalizer never came. "Mainz took their chances without mercy and we were left chasing the game from the early setbacks," said Hanno Balitsch, whose fifth yellow card rules the Nuremberg defender out of next weekends game, at home to Bayern Munich. Nuremberg was three points above the relegation places after its sixth loss from eight games, and could yet slip into the danger zone with the rest of the 11th round to be played. Mainz was provisionally fifth after its fifth consecutive win at home. jerseys from china

The MLS champion Galaxy will host Toronto in the return leg in Carson, Calif., on March 14. "A lot of thought went into selecting the home site for this very important match," said Paul Beirne, Toronto FCs senior director of business operations. "While we would have loved to host our quarter-final match at our home, BMO Field, ultimately the decision came down to our ability to deliver a safe and enjoyable event in a venue that could withstand the unpredictability of Marchs weather conditions. "We felt that BMO Fields infrastructure in its present state combined with the exposure to the winter conditions would not deliver on this experience." Toronto FC looked into upgrading BMO Fieldd to prepare it for the winter CONCACAF match.dddddddddddd However, the facility would not have been ready for early March. The game at the Rogers Centre will be played on artificial turf. A spokesperson at Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment said it would be the same turf used in a friendly between Italian clubs Juventus and Fiorentina on May 25, 2010. "Natural grass is a lot better than synthetic surfaces," said Juventus star Allesandro Del Piero after that match, sharply criticizing the playing conditions at Rogers Centre. "But the atmosphere was great, and I am happy the fans were so enthusiastic." The winners of the CONCACAF quarter-final will advance to the semifinals in late March and early April.
