Kiricocho, La Maldición Argentina Que Prendió El Duelo Entre Haaland Y Bono, Arquero Del Sevilla

Borussia Dortmund venció a Sevilla por un agregado de 5-4 para avanzar a los Cuartos de Final de la Champions League 2020/2021. La gran figura del duelo fue el noruego Erling Haaland, quien anotó cuatro de los cinco goles del equipo alemán en la serie. El cuarto, por cierto, de seguro entra en los récords como uno de los más estrambóticos en la historia de la competencia.

Sus ingredientes: VAR y kiricocho, una vieja maldición nacida en canchas argentinas.

La Era Messi-Cristiano Llegó A Su Fin (Ahora El Mundo Se Divide En Haalandistas Y Mbappistas)

Algún día tenía que pasar. Todos sabemos que el cuerpo deja de producir momentos “¡guau!” a medida que envejece y los casos de Lionel Messi y Cristiano Ronaldo, dos de los futbolistas más grandes de la historia, no son la excepción. Si bien aún son capaces de un “Last Dance” o un último y maravilloso atardecer de otoño, la verdad triste y dura es que su época de dominio global ha llegado a su fin.

Keylor Navas Reaffirms His Status As The Most Underrated Goalkeeper Of All Time

PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain looked shaky as they completed a 5-2 aggregate victory against Barcelona to reach the Champions League quarterfinals, but keeper Keylor Navas kept them afloat when their demons resurfaced.

On the stroke of halftime on Wednesday, Barça had a penalty that could have put them 2-1 up and two goals away from forcing extra time after a 4-1 defeat in the first leg at the Camp Nou. A repeat of the 2017 "remontada”, when Barça beat PSG 6-1 to overturn a 4-0 first leg defeat in the last 16, seemed more than just a pipe dream.

Messi Hits 30-Yard Screamer, Misses 12-Yard Penalty As Barça Crashes Out To PSG

Despite controlling 73 percent possession and attempting 21 shots compared to just seven for PSG, Barcelona could only manage one goal at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday — which was canceled out by a controversial Kylian Mbappé penalty in a 1-1 draw — to crash out of the Champions League at the Round of 16 stage, 5-2 on aggregate. 

Weston McKennie’s Gonna Be Thinking About This Nutmeg For A Long Time

One day after the 10-year anniversary of Robin van Persie’s most ignominious moment as a footballer, Porto’s Mehdi Taremi was a victim of the exact same call. Once again, keeper Wojciech Szczesny witnessed the unthinkable in a game he started, and once again his team lost a game it looked certain to win. Only this time he could blame an American, not a shocking officiating decision.

Only The Obscene Stupidity Of VAR Can Stop Erling Haaland Now

Picture this: The 81,365 capacity Westfalenstadion is rocking after Erling Haaland has given Borussia Dortmund a 4-2 aggregate lead over Sevilla in their Champions League Round of 16 second leg. In the 54th minute, Haaland tears the roof off the place after bodying Fernando to the floor, recollecting possession and clipping a right-footed effort over Bono from an obtuse angle.

It’s an awe-inspiring goal, combining strength, technique and a borderline unhealthy obsession with sticking the ball in the back of the net.

Agreement On New-Look UEFA Champions League Is Close To Being Finalized

MANCHESTER, England - Agreement on a new-look Champions League structure is close to being completed and should be sealed in the next two weeks, Andrea Agnelli, president of Juventus and chairman of the European Club Association (ECA), said on Monday.

Agnelli told reporters after an ECA General Assembly that clubs could sign "individual commitments" to UEFA's competitions to finally end speculation about a breakaway Super League.

Dortmund Provides Gio Reyna Injury Update Ahead Of Tuesday’s Sevilla Game

DORTMUND, Germany - Borussia Dortmund's Giovanni Reyna and Raphaël Guerreiro are doubtful for their Champions League Round of 16 second leg at home to Sevilla on Tuesday but leading striker Erling Haaland will be fit, coach Edin Terzić said on Monday.

Cuatro Equipos Luchan Por El Sitial De Honor, Por La Champions Y Por La Gesta De Ser Campeones

Colchoneros, catalanes, merengues y nervionenses tendrán que dar el todo por el todo en la cancha si pretenden conquistar el ansiado título de la Liga Santander 2020-2021. Temporada tan particular como atípica. Estadios vacíos, pandemia incontrolable, crisis económica mundial y ahora el “Barçagate” percuten en demasía el ritmo de la competencia en España.

Manchester City’s 19th Straight Win Says It All, Really

Manchester City reached the preposterous milestone of 19 straight wins across all competitions following Wednesday’s 2-0 Champions League Round of 16 “away” victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach. Goals either half from Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus turned it into a training exercise at Puskás Aréna in Budapest as Gladbach only landed one shot on target.
