Atleti Must Partially Close Stadium For Man City Match Over ‘Discriminatory Behavior’ Of Fans

UEFA on Monday ordered the partial closure of Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium for their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester City on Wednesday over the "discriminatory behaviour" of their supporters.

Kevin De Bruyne's 70th minute goal earned City a 1-0 win at home in the first leg last Tuesday, after which the Spanish side were charged, with the offences of their fans including throwing of objects.

Trailing To 19th-Place Levante, Barça Turns To Its Electric Teenagers For Salvation

After starting Thursday's Europa League draw against Eintracht Frankfurt, Xavi used a match against 19th-place Levante to give 19-year-old Pedri and 17-year-old Gavi a rest. That plan lasted less than an hour at the Ciutat de València after Levante took a 52nd-minute lead from the spot through José Morales.

Incredibly, Levante could've gone 2-0 up in the 56th when the home side was awarded another penalty, but Marc-André ter Stegen saved Roger Martí's effort and Xavi immediately replaced Frenkie de Jong with Gavi and Nico González with Pedri.

Did Ángel Correa Deserve Red For Kicking Ball Into Grealish’s Face?

I’ve heard people say on many occasions that Jack Grealish has what we call a punchable face. Ángel Correa went a different route and sent the Champions League ball into the Man City winger’s face.

Late in Manchester City’s 1-0 win over Atlético Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals on Tuesday, Grealish fell to the pitch following a challenge from Sime Vrsaljko near the midfield sideline. Correa followed it up by kicking the ball at Grealish, hitting the player in the chin.

Criticized As A ‘Parasite’ In Spanish Media, Gareth Bale Goes On The Offensive

Gareth Bale hit back at "malicious" criticism from Spanish media on Friday, saying an article in Madrid-based paper Marca was a "piece of slanderous, derogatory and speculative journalism."

Marca called the Welsh captain a "parasite" and accused him of faking a back injury that kept him out of Real Madrid's humiliating loss to Barcelona at the weekend, four days before he scored both goals in Wales's win over Austria in their World Cup playoff game.
