Jurgen Klopp recently labelled Juventus as the favourites to succeed his Liverpool side as winners of the Champions League, and Lionel Messi has also talked up the Italians' chances, but they looked nothing like contenders to lift the trophy as Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates fired blanks against Lyon on Wednesday.
Fernando Hierro says it is impossible to predict the outcome of any meeting between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The captain has raised his voice. Sergio Ramos wants to turn the page on Real Madrid's Champions League defeat against Manchester City in order to set his full focus on the looming on Real Madrid's clash against Barcelona this week. "El Clasico is not a normal match", said the Spaniard.
Quique Setién and his assistant Eder Sarabia saw the Real Madrid-City in a box at the Bernabeu. Moreover, according to 'SER Catalunya', the two coaches talked to Pep Guardiola at a hotel after the match.
At Old Trafford, they could say goodbye to a key player. According to the 'Mirror', the Red Devils are seriously considering the option of cashing in on David De Gea in order to be able to make big signings in the summer.
The 'Clásico' appears to be decisive for Umtiti and Lenglet, who are fighting to be the chosen one to play alongside Piqué. Because he started in San Paolo, Setién seems to be leaning towards the ex-Lyon player.
Real Madrid have chosen the player who they believe could fit in a Gareth Bale's replacement. It's Liverpool's Mohamed Salah, who would cost a whopping 150 million euros.
UEFA said public authorities in Austria called off the Salzburg versus Eintracht Frankfurt clash due to storms in the area.
Sergio Ramos was in the headlines for all the wrong reasons against Manchester City because of his red card, but he was also the player that suffered the most because of the comeback by Guardiola's men. This was reflected by the cameras during the match.
Zinedine Zidane said Real Madrid are down but not out in the Champions League yet the stark reality is their season could be over in March for a second year running if they keep unravelling in the Clasico on Sunday.
