Atletico spoil Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Madrid, Juve's UCL hopes

Following Atletico Madrid's opener, ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Alejandro Moreno saw a Juventus side that appeared 'flustered and rattled.'

MADRID -- "I've got five Champions Leagues, you have none," was Cristiano Ronaldo's icy response as he rushed through Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano mixed zone Wednesday night, after the former Real Madrid star's return to his old city had gone disastrously for both him and his new team Juventus.

A rip-roaring second-half display that ranks with any from Diego Simeone's eight years as Atletico coach brought a 2-0 victory, both goals courtesy set pieces from centre-backs Jose Maria Gimenez...

Wild Champions League Wednesday: VAR effect, vintage Atletico, fortunate Man City

ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes Manchester City showed another facet of their game by coming from behind in a gritty contest against Schalke.
Following Atletico Madrid's opener, ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Alejandro Moreno saw a Juventus side that appeared 'flustered and rattled.'

As European nights go, this one was not bad for the neutral. It served up a cauldron of grit, intensity and Diego Simeone magic as Atletico beat Juventus in Madrid while, in Gelsenkirchen, Manchester City narrowly avoided a seismic shock vs. Schalke, thanks in no small part to a local lad, Leroy Sane. Oh, and VAR had a prominent role to play in both games.

Here are eight takeaways from a wild Wednesday:

1. VAR was only introduced into the Champions League for this season's knockout rounds and, one...

VAR in focus in Wednesday's Champions League action

VAR was a dominant storyline in each of Wednesday's Champions League games.

After a fairly inauspicious first three matchdays in the Champions League's round of 16, the video assistant referee (VAR) took centre stage on Wednesday, as Atletico Madrid vs. Juventus and Schalke 04 vs. Manchester City saw no fewer than five match-changing decisions as the subject of full reviews.

Not everyone will agree and it is going to take time for everyone to get used to this system, but on the balance of probabilities, VAR got each and every decision correct.

Let's take a look at each...

David Silva and Man City attack show their resiliency in comeback win at Schalke

ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes Manchester City showed another facet of their game by coming from behind in a gritty contest against Schalke.

GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany -- Manchester City snatched a 3-2 victory in their Champions League round-of-16 first leg at Schalke thanks to late goals from Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling. City were ahead through Sergio Aguero, but the Bundesliga side led at half-time after Nabil Bentelab scored two penalties -- the first given by VAR after a three-minute wait. Nicolas Otamendi was then shown a second yellow card, but City showed their resilience to grab a win with two goals in the final five minutes.

Bayern fight and scrap to earn an edge vs. Liverpool but need a change of focus in Munich

Thanks to the much-maligned away goals rule in European football, many consider a 0-0 draw in the first leg of a knockout tie a good result for the home team. But after Tuesday night's game at Anfield, Bayern Munich walked away by far the happier side.

The German champions probably knew that a goalless draw statistically tilts the tie in favour of the away side. In 31 previous first-leg 0-0 draws in the Champions League, the club hosting the return fixture have gone through 22 times. Based on those...

Bayern earning draw amid Anfield atmosphere hardly a nightmare for Liverpool

180 minutes of football produced two goalless draws in the Champions League round of 16, meaning it is still all to play for.
Jurgen Klopp failed to get one over on former foe Bayern Munich as Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their second round Champions League tie at Anfield.

LIVERPOOL, England -- There are times when people get carried away with the emotion of a European night at Anfield. The noise, the colour, the fear that makes world-class opposition players freeze in their tracks; all those elements helped drive Liverpool to the Champions League final last season, but Bayern Munich debunked some myths as they secured a 0-0 round-of-16 first-leg draw on Tuesday.

Bayern, five-time European champions just like Liverpool, turned up, shrugged their shoulders...
