PSG Can Shock Barcelona Behind The Red-Hot Play Of Edinson Cavani

It’s a familiar scenario for Paris Saint-Germain: on a quest for European dominance and validation as one of the world’s top clubs, but Barcelona stand in their way. Barca eliminated PSG at the quarterfinal stage of both the 2012-13 and 2014-15 Champions League. 

The Revival Of Iker Casillas Means One Last Titanic Clash With Gianluigi Buffon

On February 22nd and March 14th, two titans of the goalkeeping position will clash in their final duel at the highest level of the game.

We thought this year might be different. How wrong we were. We thought this might be the year that Arsenal finally catch a break in the Champions League round of 16 and push through to the quarterfinals, ending a six-year round of 16 losing streak. We thought "surely they won't draw Bayern Munich again, that would be too cruel even for the soccer gods".

Arsenal drew Bayern Munich again.

5 Things We Learned From The UCL Group Stage

Real Madrid vs. Borussia Dortmund Was A Game Both Teams Deserved To Win

What the hell, let's just run it back!

Just play if over again tomorrow. Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are uniquely constructed to bring the best out of each other, for whatever reason, and Wednesday's Champions League tie was no different.

Real Madrid went up 2-0 via Karim Benzema scoring on great passes from Dani Carvajal and James Rodriguez, respectively.
