Saturday is another history-making day for Lionel Messi.
Tuesday afternoon, Lionel Messi was at it again.
Nothing else will top Neymar leaving Barcelona for PSG. Beyond that—he’ll go to France, where he will be the top player. There’s nothing wrong with that.
Acquiring Neymar is all well and good, and there’s bound to be plenty of drama if it indeed does happen. But for PSG, only one thing should matter.
Maybe Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Spain, maybe he isn’t. Maybe we’ve got a transfer saga on his hands, maybe we don’t. But who would be potential suitors?
Wednesday afternoon, Real Madrid did just enough to see off Atlético in the Champions League. Again. And no, it’s not because of the away goal.

What happens when rivals battle for club football’s most prestigious title? Saturday, Real Madrid square off against Atlético. What can we expect?

One last chance: Sevilla v. Liverpool, with a spot in next season’s UCL on the line. Will Sevilla win their 3rd in a row, or can Klopp’s men end the run?
Remember in 2013 when Spanish football died? Well, we’re this close to an All-Spanish Europe. What else has happened since the BVB-Bayern final?

Could we be looking at an All-Spanish final in the Europa League? Here’s what to watch for in the first leg of each semi-final matchup.
