Champions League Semis: Real with advantage

Champions League Semis: Real with advantage

Simply the best. Real Madrid once again came from behind to beat Bayern 2-1 in Germany. The logical conclusion would be a Real vs. Liverpool final.

Champions: Klopp set to take Liverpool Kop to top

It is not any team that takes apart FC Porto and Roma 5-0, although tonight Roma took advantage of the final minutes and came back with a brace. Jurgen Klopp has brought Liverpool FC to the very top of European soccer and it seems that while he is there, the Kop is set to stay at the Top.

Champions: Barcelona in shock exit, Klopp rules

Who would have said that Roma would stun Barcelona with three goals without reply? They did and Roma is in the semi-finals of the Champions League, along with Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool which beat Manchester City away 2-1, winning 5-1 on aggregate. Guardiola wins the Premiership this season. Next?

The scoreline speaks for itself. Guardiola has established his tiki-taka at City and his belief that ball possession means that the other team has to work harder and run faster and exhaust themselves, then becoming physically and emotionally destroyed with the defeat, is making its mark in the Premiership and for City, the first time in Europe. The team to beat.

Europa League Quarter Finals

CSKA did not manage to turn the game around, neither did Sporting but Salzburg and Marseille did. Arsenal and Atlético join them in the semis.

Second Legs

Marseille (France) 5 Leipzig (Germany) 2 Aggregate 5-3

Ilsanker 6 (o.g.)        Bruma 2 Augustin 55

Sarr 9 Thauvin 36

Payet 60 Sakai 90+4

When Bruma scored on 2', Leipzig was winning the tie 2-0 after the 1-0 home victory. At the end of the first half, Marseille was 3-2 up. Augustin scored for the visitors on 55', equalling the tie and in the event of the draw, Leipzig was winning (away goals). Payet sealed the victory and Sakai confirmed without any hope of recovery for Leipzig on 94'.

CSKA Moskva (Russia) 2 Arsenal (England) 2 Aggregate 3-6

Chalov 39 Nababkin 50     Welbeck 75   Ramsey 90+2

When Nababkin scored CSKA's second on 50', the Moscow side had pulled back to 3-4 and needed one goal without reply. Arsène Wenger's experience and experienced side proved too wily in the rest of the second half. But CSKA goes out with heads held high.

Sporting CP (Portugal) 1 Atlético Madrid (Spain) 0 Aggregate 1-2

Montero 28

When Montero scored on 28', Sporting CP thought they could turn this around. It was not to be. Despite internal problems caused by stresses between the President, players and fans, Sporting presents itself today as a serious contender on the European stage. This year it will not win the Portuguese Premier League but is vastly improved under Jorge Jesus, the manager and let it be said, the policies of the President, Bruno do Carvalho, have left the club stonger in financial terms. If the President could be more of a President and less of a fan...

Salzburg (Austria) 4 Lazio (Italy) 1 Aggregate 6-5

                                  Immobile 55

Dabbur 56, Haidara 72,

Hwang 74

Lainer 76

When Immobile scored on 55', Lazio were 5-2 up and Salzburg needed to score four goals without reply in 35 minutes. They did so in 20!
