I think Messi’s face and posture says everything about how Barcelona players feels after their thrashing in the hands of Bayern Munich a couple of nights ago. Losing such a massive champions league game 4-0 is a humongous humiliation for any team even more so for at team not used to it such as Messi’s [...]
You sometimes see managers getting quite frustrated during matches, sometimes they kick a water bottle or curse at the air (or the referee), but what CFR Cluj coach Sorin Cartu did in their 1-0 loss away to Basel was quite remarkable. He lost his cool and kicked the side of the perspex glass shelter, shattering [...]
I think the draw for the group stages of this season’s Champions League produced some rather tame fixtures, where there are clear favorites to win each group, and you don’t see many surprises being produced. However, Group G certainly sounds like the group of death, with Milan, Real Madrid, Ajax and Auxerre all battling it [...]
Israel side Hapoel Tel Aviv beat Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg 3-2 away in the first leg of their Champions League tie, which was a big surprise. However, another surprising thing is that the goalscorer of Hapoel’s 3rd goal, Itay Schecter, was given a yellow card for his celebration, which involved putting a Jewish skullcap [...]
The football season draws to a close this week in Europe, and all eyes are going to be on the big game on Saturday between Inter Milan and Bayern Munich. My Champions League final prediction is that this is going to be a very close match, with Inter just edging it 1-0.

It doesn’t seem like Barcelona will be making any official statements about the little “accident” that happened at the end of the 2nd leg between the Spanish side and Inter Milan in the Champions League semi-final, which shouldn’t be too surprising. The incident speaks for itself really.
After the final whistle, which saw Inter lose 1-0 [...]

Who will emerge victorious? Here are our predictions:
Arsenal vs. Barcelona
Defending champion Barcelona is probably seen by most observers as the CL favourite but with Arsenal not far behind. The [...]
It has been two months and a week since the last Champions League games, and finally, we are back. A lot of things have happened since the biggest competition in Europe held it’s last group games, namely the January transfer window and the 2010 African Cup of Nations. Some big players have moved clubs; some [...]
Unless you live under a rock, you already know that Barcelona very comfortably subdued the London club to capture their 3rd Champions League title in history and second since 2006. The miracle team made the final game look easy for them. After the first few minutes of the game with Manchester United having control and [...]
By now, we all know that Barcelona managed to win the second ticket to the Champions League final where Manchester United has been waiting since the day before. The game was controversial and Chelsea have lots of reason to complain about some of the referee’s calls. Then again, Barcelona had to play more than 20 [...]
