    Champions League...

    The Champions League resumes tomorrow, with Arsenal taking on Monaco and Atletico Madrid squaring off against Bayer Leverkusen.  They play the Ligue 1 side on Tuesday bearing the fact that no team has recovered from a similar deficit (they trail 3-1 from the first leg) in the competition.

    Champions League...

    The Champions League draw took place last week, and critics are already debating the possibility of Man City defeating Barcelona this year. Luis Enrique’s side has been deemed somewhat ‘unstable’ after using 22 different line-ups in 22 different games this season. As a result, the squad has looked disjointed. Barca...

    Champions League...

    Man City’s Samir Nasri has shed some light on the situation for the players should the club fail to progress to the next stage of the Champions League. And it’s serious, given the fact that they could be eliminated if they fail to beat Bayern Munich tonight. “We need to...

    Liverpool’s Balotelli...

    It’s fair to say that the talking point from Liverpool’s 3-0 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League last night was Mario Balotelli’s attitude. Actually, forget the match – let’s all sit down and talk about Balotelli and how he is likely to leave (or not) in the upcoming...

    LA DECIMA...

    Real Madrid celebrated their 10th Champions League title in style yesterday and Monday, a celebration that can be best compared to the Vienna Ball and a Rolling Stones concert rolled into one. It was their elusive tenth title after all, so can you really blame them? There was an open-top...

    Champions League...

    Who would’ve thought that the Champions League final in Lisbon on May 24 was destined to be a Madrid derby after all? After a 3-1 win over a clearly emotional Chelsea side, it is Atletico – the leaders of the La Liga – who will contest their city rivals for...

    Real Madrid...

    There is understandably a great cause for celebration when you soar to a 4-0 victory over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. Victories aside, Carlo Ancelotti and his team deserve all the credit for steering Real Madrid to their first Champions League final in 12 years. In their seemingly elusive...

    AC Milan...

    AC Milan and Atletico Madrid are set to play for a spot in the Champions League quarter-finals, and the focus is on Mario Balotelli’s return. Atletico Madrid will also need to maintain their 1-0 lead from the first leg, coming into tonight’s game at the San Siro. Despite Balotelli’s return...
