With one team destined to be winless after the first two games of the 2013 CFL campaign, both the Edmonton Eskimos and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats try to prevent that from happening today when they get together at Guelph Alumni Stadium. Nicklas Backstrom Jersey . You can watch the game live on TSN and TSN Mobile TV at 4:30pm et/1:30pm pt. Granted, there is a possibility that the teams could play to a tie this weekend, but that hasnt happened in a number of years now and shouldnt be much of a possibility given how wild the scoring opportunities were during the first week of the season. In fact, the 277 points scored in the four games during the first week, an average of just over 69 per game, made it the third- highest Week 1 scoring effort in league history. The Ticats played a major role in the scoring outburst, putting up 34 points against Toronto on the road, but even that was not enough to upset the defending Grey Cup Champions in their own building. Hamilton ended up suffering the five-point loss mainly because the offense went to sleep in the second half, scoring a grand total of just three points. The leagues leading passer from a year ago, Henry Burris, who was coming off a campaign in which he completed close to 65 percent of his passes for 5,367 yards and 43 touchdowns, tried to pick up where he left off by hitting 24- of-37 passes for 361 yards and three touchdowns, but it simply wasnt enough to keep the team from falling into the loss column. But you cant fault the signal-caller for his efforts because, with only seconds to play down the stretch he nearly pulled off a remarkable win. Burris initially thought his desperation pass at the end of regulation was completed for what could have been the game-winning touchdown, but clearly the ball bounced off the turf and into the hands of Andy Fantuz. Despite not coming up with the critical reception, Fantuz still had a standout performance with 10 catches for 155 yards and a score. Unfortunately for the Ticats, Fantuz was placed on the one-game injured list. Hamilton kick returner Lindsey Lamar was named the special teams player of the week in the CFL after posting 224 yards -- including a 104-yard TD return -- on six kickoffs along with four punt returns for 18 yards. Lamars scoring run came just minutes into the first quarter, part of a 21-point eruption by the Ticats in the frame. Hamilton was one of three teams to go without a turnover in the first week of play, the others being Toronto and Saskatchewan. However, what made the Ticats stand out is that they bucked the trend that says clubs that are error-free should come out on top more than 88 percent of the time since 1996. As mentioned earlier, the first week of action in the CFL was heavily offensive by nature, but the one team that didnt follow suit was Edmonton. Had it not been for a 12-point burst in the final 15 minutes, the Eskimos would have been left with single digits for the contest. Edmonton, which is trying to find a worthy and deserving starting quarterback, put Mike Reilly in the cross hairs in the first week and the result was less than favorable. Reilly finished the meeting against Saskatchewan, a 39-18 defeat, 17-of-35 for 259 yards and a score, but he was also picked off three times and suffered three sacks. The Eskimos brought in second-stringer Jonathan Crompton, a product of Tennessee, and he responded by going 6-of-11 for 70 yards. Edmonton scored just a single major, a 19-yard pass to Fred Stamps. Kicker Grant Shaw did all he could for the club by hitting three of his four field goal attempts. The Esks managed to generate 417 yards of total offense but turnovers, as well as 15 penalties for a loss of 90 yards, didnt help matters. On a positive note for Edmonton, JC Sherritt came out and showed that his record-setting performance from last season was no fluke as he tallied a game- high seven stops and registered a sack in the losing cause. Sherritt, who logged a record 130 defensive tackles a year ago, is now 16th on the teams all-time tackles list with 206 stops. Dating back to 1950 and taking into account only games that have been played during the regular season, Edmonton owns a 53-29-1 advantage over the Ticats. The Eskimos won the most recent meeting last Oct. 5 by a final of 35-20 at home, which means the club has now taken three of the last four and five of the last seven matchups overall.

Barcelona has agreed terms with a relatively unknown Argentine league coach, Gerardo Martino, to follow in the footsteps of two of European footballs most successful coaches. According to a club statement on Tuesday, Martino will be given a two-year contract. He will replace Tito Vilanova, who in turn succeeded Pep Guardiola. Vilanova began as Guardiolas assistant, providing the tactical know-how that helped his then boss forge one of the best teams in the history of the sport -- winning 14 of a possible 19 titles from 2008-2012, including two Champions League trophies. During Vilanovas single season in charge, he led Barcelona to the Spanish league title with a record-tying 100 points. He stepped down as Barcelona coach last week following a recurrence of throat cancer. Despite having no experience coaching a European club, the 50-year-old Martino received backing from Barcelona star Lionel Messi before the clubs sporting director travelled to Buenos Aires to negotiate the deal. Messi spoke glowingly of Martino, better known in Argentina by the nickname "Tata." "I like Tata Martino," Messi said recently. "He is a great coach," adding that "his teams play well and we all respect him." Martino acknowledged Messis influence in landing the job. "I have no doubt that Jorge (Messis father) and Lionel have had importance," Martino said at a news conference in Rosario, Argentina. "They surely have spoken with the club officials. Surely they were asked their opinion." The club praised Martino on its website for "his clear commitment to the passing game" and the attacking style that have become Barcelonas on-field trademark. However, in a poll published Tuesday by the Catalan regions leading newspaper, La Vanguardia, under the banner "Do you approve of Tata Martino signing?" 58 per cent of readers answered "no" and only 32 per cent approved. Dale Hunter Jersey. Ten per cent of the 1,000 people polled had no opinion. Barcelona said it will specify plans for the Argentines arrival in Barcelona "in the coming hours." Martino is expected to travel from Argentina to sign a contract and be presented officially to the club. Martino played as a midfielder from 1980-1996, including a short spell in 1991 at Spanish club Tenerife in the Canary Islands. He also led Paraguay to the quarterfinals of the World Cup for the first time, in 2010. Martino is due to arrive with his assistant from coaching Newells Old Boys last season, Jorge Pautasso, fitness coach Elvio Paulo Rosso and coach Adrian Coria, who once was in charge of Messi at the Argentine club. Barcelona says Martino will become the fourth Argentine to coach the club, after Helenio Herrera (1958-60, 1980 and 1980-81), Roque Olsen (1965-67), and Cesar Luis Menotti (1983-84). Barcelona is due to travel to Germany on Wednesday for a preseason friendly match against Bayern Munich -- which is now coached by Guardiola -- but Martino is not going to be able to accompany the squad, the club said. In what he called an "open letter" released Tuesday, Vilanova said his doctors had advised him to give up coaching, but said he would not be leaving the club altogether. "I will continue to be very close and will carry on working at this club that I love so much on other tasks within the area of sports," said Vilanova without specifying any further.
