Raul scored his record 50th goal in the European Champions League to help Real Madrid beat visiting Olympiakos, 2-1, yesterday, while host Liverpool tied Chelsea, 0-0, in the teams' first meeting since last season's semifinal in the soccer competition.
Liverpool, the defending champion, was angry that referee Massimo De Santis did not award penalty kicks when Sami Hyypia was brought down by Chelsea's Didier Drogba on the edge of the six-yard box and following a handball by defender William Gallas.
"It was clear, no? Watching the TV? Unbelievable," Liverpool Coach Rafa Benitez said.
A.C. Milan, last year's runner-up, tied Schalke, 2-2; Inter Milan edged Rangers, 1-0, playing in an empty stadium because of fan misbehavior in previous games; Lyon beat Rosenborg, 1-0; Fenerbahce beat injury-hit PSV Eindhoven, 3-0; Artmedia beat Porto, 3-2; and Anderlecht lost, 1-0, to Real Betis.
* HOCKEY: Jeremy Roenick will sit out the Los Angeles Kings' final two preseason games as he recovers from a concussion suffered last weekend.
Roenick was leveled by Phoenix's Denis Gauthier in the Kings' 7-4 victory Sunday.
"It is uncalled for. It was not a cheap hit, it was a good solid hit. But you don't do that in preseason," Roenick said. . . .
Niklas Kronwall will be out at least six weeks with a knee injury, leaving the Detroit Red Wings without one of their top defensemen. Kronwall's left knee was injured when Colorado's Dan Hinote hip-checked him in an exhibition game Tuesday night.
* AUTO RACING: The Grand Prix of Ansan scheduled next month in South Korea has been canceled because of operational problems with its promoter, the Champ Car World Series said.

* TENNIS: Defending champion Roger Federer advanced to the second round of the Thailand Open in Bangkok, defeating Marcos Daniel, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4.
Lleyton Hewitt also won, beating Lukas Dlouhy, 6-3, 3-6, 7-5. The second-seeded Hewitt moves into the second round, where the Australian will meet Thailand's Paradorn Srichaphan.
Earlier, third-seeded Robby Ginepri advanced to the quarterfinals with a 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) win over Nicolas Thomann.
