It was a thrashing victory for the German Giants where they beat Barca by 8-2. The nightmare still haunts Barca and since then many things have changed in Barca, but in terms of displaying ruthless football, Bayern Munich remain the same – Hansi Flick left and under Julian Naglesmann, Bayern are the same brute force.

Koeman disrespected me: Miralem Pjanic

Miralem Pjanic was on the exit ramp at Barcelona for the entirety of the summer, before eventually sealing a move to join Besiktas this week.

As long as the transfer market is open, there will be many rumours circulating:...

Every day, the rumour of Kylian Mbappe joining Real Madrid is gaining new momentums. It seems that every formality has been completed and it is a matter of time for Mbappe to land in Santiago Bernabeu and proceed.

It’s better that people don’t know the truth: Ernesto Valverde

Ernesto Valverde has opened up about his time at Barcelona and about his exit from the Catalan club in January of 2020.

Real have a very good squad; they can go toe to toe with any...

After a tough season in 2020-21, Real Madrid would start fresh today against Deportivo Alaves and kick off the new La Liga season with the intent to win the title and dream big. Under the new manager, Carlo Ancelotti, the Los Blancos would start without their leader Sergio Ramos and start a new era.

There was one moment I looked at [Eriksen] and he was gone: Martin Braithwaite

It was one of the most shocking moments in the history of football when, all of a sudden, Christian Eriksen of Denmark and Inter, collapsed in the middle of the group match against Finland. He suffered a cardiac arrest and at one point, it seemed that the Danish star would not survive. But, thankfully, the medical was competent enough to stabilize Eriksen.  

We are here to do ours, not to observe what is happening on the...

People like his hairstyle, his brilliant sense of dressing and his cool and composed manner.


The nine-goal thriller

There was a thrilling encounter going on at Anfield. At Milan, Real Madrid were experiencing the intensity of Inter. Paris Saint-Germain were experiencing that spending big money does not matter if you don’t realize what football is all about. Erling Haaland was doing his usual job.
