I won the ball fairly – Bellingham shocked by ref’s decision

Jude Bellingham believes that luck was not on his side when his goal was controversially ruled out in Borussia Dortmund's 2:1 defeat to Manchester City in the first leg of the UCL quarterfinal clash between the two sides at the Etihad. The England midfielder impressed for his German side throughout the game but was unlucky in an incident that saw his equalizer for the Germans to make 1:1 chalked off. Bellingham stole the ball from Man City goalkeeper Ederson who had miscued a clearance before slotting the ball into the net. However, the referee blew his whistle for a foul and left no room for a VAR analysis of the incident.

Home sides start on a high on day 1 of 2020/21 UCL quarterfinals

The quarter-final stage of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League kicked off on Tuesday night and the first night of action saw all the home sides come out victoriously. Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3:1 at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in a game they dominated based on chances created. They also limited Jurgen Klopp's men to just 1 shot on target amid fears that they would be very open in the absence of Sergio Ramos and Rafael Varane. However, it didn't matter eventually, as Vinicius was on hand to deliver deadly blows to Liverpool. Regardless, Zinedine Zidane and his men know that there is still all to play for when they visit Anfield, although the venue has become a hunting ground for visiting teams, albeit domestically. Therefore, the Los Blancos will be wary of the threat the Reds po...

Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund have been given no choice but to openly fend off the wolves that have been stalking their world-class prolific target man Erling Haaland.

The striker has continued his prolific form thus far and has been very consistent despite the side's propensity to blow hot and cold in the ongoing season. His brilliance in attack has linked him with a move to Real ...

Can these three La Liga teams bounce back in the UCL?

The second leg fixtures of the round of 16 games of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League begin today. This stage of the competition should be a cause for concern for La Liga enthusiasts as only one team amongst the 4 sides that qualified to this stage look good for a place in the next round of the competition. Regardless, nothing is cast in stone yet! Only 1 La Liga club won their game in the first round of matches of this stage and it was Real Madrid away from home to Serie A outfit Atalanta in a 1 nil victory. However, the other sides failed in their quest to be in good standing ahead of the second round of games, and Barcelona's performance was woeful, to say the least. The sad part is that they played at home except for Atletico Madrid. READ: Solskjaer’s United – Kings of the ...
