Keep or dump: How will Real Madrid look next year?

Real Madrid

Explaining the VAR drama: Why Fernando Llorente's goal stood as Spurs eliminated Man City

The FC crew argue the referee was not provided the proper angles to see whether or not a handball was committed on Tottenham's third goal.

In a perfect world, we would have been talking only about four goals in 11 minutes, one of the wildest quarterfinal matches in history, how Manchester City's season is reduced to a "mere" potential Treble and how Tottenham are 180 minutes away from their first European Cup final. But we live in an imperfect world, and one of the legacies of Wednesday night at the Etihad is the controversy surrounding Fernando Llorente's goal and the use of Video Assistant Referees (VAR).

After speaking to multiple...

Juventus have been in danger of collapse all season long. Against Ajax, it happened

ESPN FC's Craig Burley credits Ajax for teaching Juventus a footballing lesson over two legs in their Champions League quarterfinal tie.

Imagine a warning light flashing on your dashboard as you speed down the highway. You know it's there. You know it's potentially important but no matter what you do, no matter what tweaks you make, it won't go away.

Welcome to Max Allegri's view while driving Juve's team bus. All season long he beat the same drum, even as the side were sailing through their Champions League group and establishing a record-setting pace in Serie A that could see them win the title for the eighth straight year...

Why does Guardiola make so many changes in big Champions League games? That's just Pep being Pep

"Proper Football Man" plays the percentages. "Proper Football Man" is reasonable and conventional. "Proper Football Man" disdains change and is suspicious of those who try to be clever. The only outside-the-box thing about "Proper Football Man" is where he asks his players to shoot from when he wants them to "have a go" or "test the keeper."

Pep Guardiola is not a "Proper Football Man" and we had further evidence of this Tuesday at Tottenham Hotspur's new cathedral of a ground in the first leg...

Champions League quarterfinals, leg 1: predictions and key battles

The Champions League returns at the Elite Eight stage, which is where things really took off last season. We saw heavy favourites Manchester City and Barcelona upset and marveled at last-minute heroics and controversy, including the Real Madrid penalty at the Bernabeu that sent Juve keeper Gigi Buffon into a white-hot rage before the referee used a different color -- red -- to send him off.

Brace yourself: The stage is set once again. Here's everything you need to know, from the superheroes and...
