Juventus Advance Past Porto Into UCL Quarterfinals

We should just post our recap from the first leg between Juventus and Porto, really, because they were basically the same game. 

Both teams looked dangerous, with Juventus controlling a bit more of the possession, until Porto did something stupid, Juventus scored and that was that.

This time, it was a Maxi Pereira red card for blocking the ball with an outstretched arm after a shot from Gonzalo Higuain. Paulo Dybala converted the penalty and the tie was over, with Porto's poor finishing helping to put a lid on things.

Leicester City's Achievement Moves Beyond Description With 2-0 Win Over Sevilla

Leicester City have defeated Sevilla 3-2 on aggregate (2-0 on the night) to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals behind goals from Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton. Sevilla had Samir Nasri sent off in the 74th, a penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel in the 80th and were ultimately left to rue their wastefulness in the first leg. This was Leicester's night. 

Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare sent out the same XI that had defeated Liverpool and Hull City in his first two games in charge, Shinji Okazaki being the main beneficiary of the managerial change. 

Watch: Leicester City Open The Scoring vs. Sevilla

Has the magic returned?! Leicester City have been flying since the sacking of Claudio Ranieri and the momentum has continued early into their 2nd leg affair vs Sevilla. Down 2-1 aggregate, the Foxes have a crucial away goal from the first leg and opened the scoring in the second leg.

Riyad Mahrez, who was non existent in the first leg, whipped in a beautiful free kick into the box that nearly missed everyone. Then a fighting Wes Morgan somehow got a thigh on the ball and the King Power erupted. Morgan also became the first Jamaican to score a goal in the Champions League.  

The Way Handballs Are Called Needs To Be Changed

We all spend hours debating and arguing why a particular handball was called or not, especially when it happens in the 18-yard box. Looking at FIFA’s Laws of the Game, the handball rule is written as followed:

FIFA Laws of the Game P. 82: Handling the ball 

Handling the ball involves a deliberate act of a player making contact with the ball with the hand or arm.
