Juventus vs. Barcelona: A clash of defense and offense in Turin

Last five games


Barca: LWWWL

A repeat of 2014/15 Champions League final sees the Spanish champions Barcelona traveling to Turin to take on the Italian champions Juventus. Although on paper this looks like a mouthwatering clash that can go either way, recent forms suggest Juve are the clear favorites to get an all important first leg win at home. 

Leicester City Are An Unsolvable Riddle That Should Terrify Atletico Madrid

February 22nd, 2017: The jig is up. Leicester City have escaped Sevilla with only a single-goal deficit, but the final scoreline could’ve and should’ve seen Sevilla travel to the King Power Stadium with a three or four goal advantage. 

Leicester City are done and dusted — they’ve been tactically found out, the one-year wonders of Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and a defensive backline that’s suddenly had a massive epiphany regarding their own individual shortcomings means that the Foxes are doomed.

VIDEO: 12 Years Ago The World Met Lionel Messi, And It Was Against Juventus

Aside from the 2015 Champions League final, 12 years ago was the last time Barcelona and Juventus played each other, it was also the night Messi showed how good he really was.

Monaco Advance To Champions League Quarterfinals Because LOL Man City's Defense

The second leg of Monaco vs. Manchester City promised lunacy. After a 5-3 Manchester City won in the first leg, two exciting offenses backed by trash defenses faced off in Monaco, with the hosts moving on to the Champions League quarterfinals after a 3-1 win.

Monaco's defense proved to be the less trash defense and also Manchester City were lackadaisical in the first half and they couldn't finish to save their lives in the second.

Given that Radamel Falcao was missing and Manchester City still gave up three goals, I'd say they pretty much got what they deserved. 

Atletico Madrid Goalkeeper Jan Oblak Pulls Off Sensational Triple Save

Atletico Madrid have advanced to the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the fourth consecutive season, and for the fourth consecutive season, they look like legitimate contenders for Europe’s greatest club prize.

They have no reason to fear their potential opponents. They’re, of course, well-versed in the battles between themselves, Real Madrid and Barcelona. They finished above Bayern Munich in this season’s group stage (and beat them in the semifinals last year), and the same can be said with regards to Juventus two years ago.
