Bayern Munich

The Flick and Bayern combo is just too formidable

Bayern Munich have carved a niche for themselves as the best team in Europe and unarguably the team to beat as the 2020/21 football season progresses in Europe. The Bavarian giants have added the UEFA Supercup to their laurels and have started on a positive note after ending the 2019/20 season on a high. I guess very few saw the Bundesliga giants being this dominant in Europe after the sack of Niko Kovac and his replacement by Hansi Flick.

This is no longer the big Chelsea from the past with players like Michael Ballack, John ...

UCL Matchday 1- Ronaldo set to rival Messi, but in a Juve shirt

Lionel Messi bagged a hat-trick for Barcelona yesterday in the first set of games of Match Day 1 of the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League against Eredivisie champions PSV. One season ago and we would have been looking to see if his rival Cristiano Ronaldo would replicate similar performance and to bag his for Real Madrid. This won't be the case this term as the Portuguese is now with Juventus but there is still room for rivalry between the two especially in the UEFA Champions League. Funny enough, Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Spain tonight and visits the Mestalla. He'll be doing this in a Juventus shirt, and having broken his duck last weekend with a brace against Sassuolo in the Serie A, one would expect him to continue his fine scoring form in the UEFA Champions League tonight. ...
