The Nou Camp saw a 0-0 draw as Juventus pulled of some fantastic defending, managing to restrict Barcelona to just one shot on target. Entering the game with a 3-0 deficit, all eyes were on the magic trio, Messi, Suarez and Neymar, to produce another spectacular come back. But, the Italian Serie A leaders were well structured, focusing most of their game on closing down quickly and keeping their back four in a strict formation. And it worked. Juventus are through to the semi-finals of the Champions League as they now h

There was plenty of drama in the second-leg of the Champions League quarter finals last night. Hat-trick hero, Cristiano Ronaldo, helped Real Madrid qualify for the next stage of the cup. The main man from Portugal scored in the 76th minute, a goal that would have seen Real Madrid sail through to the semis in 90 minutes, if it wasn’t for an own goal from Sergio Ramos two minutes after. Bayern Munich ended normal time with 10 men as Arturo Vidal was incorrectly sent off. With Ronaldo looking threatening and heading into

Leicester trail going into the second leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League, but they leave Madrid believing they are still very much in the running of making it to the next stages of the cup. The Foxes coped well against the La Liga side and Atlético boss, Diego Simeone’s pass it to bloody Griezmann strategy. The defensive concentration from Leicester restricted Atlético from breaking through the back four, limiting them to shots outside the penalty area. It was from an awful refereeing decision that allowed the Spanish score the opener from the penalty spot. Marc Albrighton’s foul on Antoine Griezmann was given inside the box, when replays show the challenge was clearly outside of the area. The French forward sent Kasper Schmeichel the wrong way putting it in the bottom left corner. Just the one goal separates the two teams who meet again for round two next week. Atlético Madrid, a team who’ve reached the Champions League final twice in the last three years, travel to th

Juventus get a great head start in their mission to Champions League victory, carrying a comfortable 3-0 lead into the second leg at the Nou Camp on Wednesday, 19th April. The Italian Series A leaders looked a threatening side last night with plenty of pressure and quick counter attacks. The Argentine striker, Paulo Dybala put two away in the first half and a header from a set piece by Giorgio Chiellini managed to secure their victory. It’s no surprise that Juventus put on a great performance at ‘The Stadium’ as their

Crystal Palace were close to a second but the rebounded shot from Benteke was flagged off side and the goal dissallowed. Arsenal had more possession in the first half and had some god eff

Everton vs Leicester was the most end-to-end game of football in the Premier League this weekend. The first half saw 5 goals, 3 of which were inside the first 10 minutes. The much talked about Tom Davies bagged inside the first 30 seconds of the game; a goal that comes after signing a five-year contract earlier in the week. However, it took the Premier League champions just 4 minutes to equalize and 10 minutes for Albrighton to curl in a peach of a free kick, straight into the top corner. Having received

Chelsea move one step closer to Premier League victory, after beating Manchester City 2-1 at Stamford Bridge. Hazard was the main man for the current leaders, putting his team ahead in just 10 minutes. His shot wasn’t very convincing until a deflection off Vincent Kompany, wrong-footed Caballero, who in all honesty, should have done a lot better to prevent his side going a goal down. A goalkeeping mistake at the other end of the pitch saw City level it up. A weak-footed clearance from Courtois sailed str
