Champions League preview: Leicester bid to extend fairy tale and Manchester City set to resume goal fest with Monaco

The final Champions League last 16 ties are rounded up this week and only two appear to still be alive.

Turkish Delight And Lyon To Fight

We’re at the Billy Business end of the Champions League, which means that some great odds are available to those who do some studying to find the clubs who need/don’t need results in the final round of group games.

Leicester To Sail But Spurs Set For One More Euro Fail

It’s that time of the blog where I come up with a hilarious metaphor to summarise the fixtures ahead… Well, we’re into the business end of the Champions League, with teams more keen for 3 points than somebody who loves committing motor offences. Aaaaanyway… Let’s dive straight in with my tip of the day. Real … Continue reading

Do Barca Absentees Leave the City Door Ajar?

I don’t think I’m the only one who fell foul of the Halloween horror show over the weekend. Man United couldn’t find the net with one of their 38 shots against Burnley.

UCL Preview – Atlético Madrid v Barcelona

Messi, Suarez, Neymar et al. travel to the Spanish capital looking to cement their 2-1 lead from last week’s first leg. Atléti were by no means outplayed by the Catalan’s giants and put in a strong performance before losing goalscorer Fernando Torres to a reckless second yellow, meaning he misses tonight’s encounter. Barcelona have won … Continue reading

Real Madrid v VfL Wolfsburg

Real Madrid have Karim Benzema fit as they try to overturn a 2-0 deficit in tonight’s Champions League last eight, second leg game against Wolfsburg. The first leg stuffed up a load of accumulator’s, but we fancy Real to still to do the business tonight. With BBC up top anything is possible, so here are a few … Continue reading

Man City v PSG Preview

City and already crowned French champions PSG drew 2-2 in the first leg in Paris, so we’re expecting this to be another open affair.
