We saw this last round—a club holding their ground at home while dismantling Barcelona. But unfortunately for the Spanish giants, Juventus is no PSG.
After another rousing weekend of English Premier League action (it was okay), we have some thoughts. First, on the Sunderland/Manchester United match from Sunday morning:
Look, the title race is probably over. I know what you’re thinking, Spurs fans. But it’s Chelsea’s to lose. We can talk about United underachieving instead.
Timo Werner has taken the Bundesliga by storm this season, thriving within newly-promoted Leipzig’s system. But, he needs to wait another season to move.
Some teams will always have more money or power than others. Still, a lot of fans seem to crave parity when it comes to football. But why?
Tuesday afternoon came and went, and with it, Leicester City knocked off Sevilla to advance to the quarterfinals. How? What’s going on? And what’s next?
With Antonio Conte on the touchline, Chelsea have been a step or two ahead of everyone this season. That’s unlikely to change with the FA Cup’s final four.
Zlatan threw a devastating elbow Saturday against Bournemouth. And, punishment might actually follow. Also, how much longer does Arsène Wenger have?
Premier League managers are arguably under fire more than most. Reinforced with Claudio Ranieri, we’re learning again as pressure mounts on Arsène Wenger.
Monday afternoon came and went, and Leicester City took advantage. Liverpool, meanwhile, are once again left searching for answers.
Little has changed since we last spoke of Chelsea running the EPL. Meanwhile Zlatan led United to another trophy, but it was awfully harsh on Southampton.
Fresh off their thrashing at the hands of Bayern, the relegation conversation begins again for Hamburg—one that’s becoming all too familiar.
Last season was a fairy tale; this season it came undone. In the end, the answer was familiar: Claudio Ranieri, like many before him, became the scapegoat.
When it comes to FC Bayern, we’ve grown to expect a certain level of dominance. But just because we’re not seeing it doesn’t mean it’s all their fault.
Tuesday afternoon, PSG took a much-needed step forward. Wednesday afternoon, Arsenal tried to follow suit. Instead, they crashed and burned. Again.
Since 2012, PSG have run Ligue 1. But along the way they’ve failed to take that next step in continental play—until Tuesday, when they battered Barcelona.
If Hope Solo is genuinely hoping to return to the USWNT, maybe criticizing the side’s current coach should wait. That said, she never seems to help herself.
