Thu, 20 Sep 2018 04:14:00 PDT

The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets on the best and worst performers from UCL matchday one, if Arsenal were wise to pass on Mikel Arteta and more. Cristiano Ronaldo is sent off in controversial circumstances while Lyon take advantage of a sloppy Manchester City performance. Real Madrid head coach Julen Lopetegui prefers to talk about his whole team after their win over Roma. Manchester United's Jose Mourinho insists his side have played phenomenally in their last three matches and is hoping they can take it into their match against Wolves at Old Trafford. With a goal for Real Madrid in every competitive game, the FC crew examine what's led to Gareth Bale's sublime start to the season. The Champions League is back with a bang, but who were the stars? Here's the best XI from Matchday 1. GK - Wojciech Szczesny (Juventus) Juve performed heroically for an hour with 10 men to win 2-0 at Valencia after Cristiano Ronaldo's red card. They may have had to suffer a few flutters near the end had Szczesny, who is making their No. 1 spot his own after Gianluigi Buffon's departure, not saved Daniel Parejo's late penalty -- ensuring a continuation of their superb away form was guaranteed. RB...

Wed, 19 Sep 2018 02:48:00 PDT

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner gives his plaudits to PSV for their efforts, but says Lionel Messi's class shone through once again in Barcelona's UCL opener. After netting three against PSV on Tuesday, Lionel Messi has now scored eight hat tricks in the Champions League -- more than any other player. But which has been the best so far? 8) APOEL 0-4 Barcelona -- Nov. 25, 2014 If you look back over Messi's European trebles, the thing that stands out is the sheer quality of the goals. However, his hat trick against APOEL is the exception. After sticking out a leg to deflect Rafinha Alcantara's shot past Urko Pardo to double Barca's lead on the night, he...

Barcelona desperate to make up for recent missteps and taste Champions League glory again

Mon, 17 Sep 2018 02:00:00 PDT

Barcelona are the clear favourites in Group B of the Champions League, but the FC crew think Tottenham could struggle to finish ahead of Inter Milan. Barcelona's obsession with winning the Champions League is approaching the level of Real Madrid's when their quest for La Decima, their 10th European Cup, dragged on for 12 years earlier in the millennium. It's only been three-and-a-bit-years since Barca last lifted the trophy in Berlin in 2015, their fourth since 2006 and the fifth in their history -- their relationship with this cup is a relatively new one. Madrid are the only club that have won it since the Blaugrana. But that's kind of the...

Mon, 17 Sep 2018 11:36:00 PDT

This season's Champions League is richer and more lucrative than ever. As a competition club it has become ever more exclusive too, with 19 of the 32 teams coming from Europe's top five leagues. But let's be clear about one thing: There is much more to the Champions League than Real Madrid winning it every year and Sergio Ramos being Sergio Ramos. This is a story about the little guy, the decadent, the where did they come from, and once-mighty clubs returning to the big stage after what feels...

Lionel Messi a no-show in 5/10 performance for Barcelona against Real Sociedad

Sat, 15 Sep 2018 09:46:00 PDT

Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé scored in quick succession to offset Aritz Elustondo's goal and earn Barcelona a 2-1 come-from-behind win over Real Sociedad. Barcelona walked away from Anoeta with three points after a 2-1 win over Real Sociedad on Saturday in La Liga but could quite easily have left with nothing. Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele scored twice in four minutes to complete a second-half smash-and-grab in San Sebastian to preserve Barcelona's 100 percent start to the league season. Positives They say winning when playing badly is the mark of champions. That and Marc-Andre ter Stegen's superb second half were the only positives Barcelona could...

Barcelona hope prolonged rest during break keeps Real Sociedad curse at bay

Fri, 14 Sep 2018 10:23:00 PDT

Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes dive into this weekend's matches in La Liga and predict if anyone at the top of the table will drop points. Post-international break and Anoeta. Two concepts that in recent years have scared the life out of Barcelona. If players didn't fall victim to the "FIFA virus" while playing for their country then they would return jet-lagged from trips to all four corners of the world. Real Sociedad's stadium, meanwhile, had not been a happy hunting ground for Barca in La Liga. Between 2011 and 2017, they didn't win at Anoeta in the league, losing five games and drawing two. A trip to San Sebastian after an international...

Lionel Messi's being punished for his excellence with FIFA award snub

Mon, 3 Sep 2018 02:28:00 PDT

In 2006, Fabio Cannavaro was named as FIFA's World Player of the Year. The then-Real Madrid defender fended off competition from teammate Zinedine Zidane and Barcelona's Ronaldinho for the award after having won the World Cup with Italy that summer. Ronaldinho's colleague at the time, Lionel Messi, a floppy-haired adolescent, wasn't even in the top 10, let alone on the podium. That was the last time that Messi didn't feature in the top three, until Monday, that is, when it was revealed that Cristiano...
