Anthony Martial must build on his fine display vs. Young Boys

Craig Burley sings Paul Pogba and Man United's praises after their win over Young Boys, but isn't convinced they'll advance from their group just yet.
Manchester United's Jose Mourinho insists his side have played phenomenally in their last three matches and is hoping they can take it into their match against Wolves at Old Trafford.
Gab Marcotti sat down with Rio Ferdinand to discuss Paul Pogba's recent form at the World Cup and at Manchester United and how he wants to be the best.

BERN, Switzerland -- Almost to a man, following their 3-0 Champions League win vs. Young Boys on Wednesday, Manchester United's players turned after applauding the 1,700 travelling fans and began to walk back to the dressing rooms at the other end of the stadium.

There was one exception. As his teammates drifted away, Anthony Martial, who scored the third goal with a deflected shot after being set up by two-goal, man-of-the-match Paul Pogba, moved closer to the United supporters, who began to sing...

Can AS Roma's players, manager react to their biggest wake-up call yet?

With a goal for Real Madrid in every competitive game, the FC crew examine what's led to Gareth Bale's sublime start to the season.

Daniele De Rossi's verdict of Wednesday night's 3-0 cuffing at the hands of Real Madrid made tough listening for Romanisti. The Roma captain spoke of being "demoralised" at having to chase the ball all night, as Luka Modric & Co. casually strutted about the Santiago Bernabeu and batted around his side like a bored cat with a ball of wool but instead of anger, he seemed resigned.

"In the past we've been given bigger slaps."

This is their level, it seems: a red and yellow carpet for Europe's top...

Man City's lack of European history has caused fans to be slow to embrace the Champions League

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Shaka Hislop assess where Manchester City's UCL opener went wrong following their 2-1 defeat against Lyon.
Manchester City assistant manager Mikel Arteta admits he has no idea if manager Pep Guardiola's touchline ban would've had an effect on their 2-0 Champions League loss to Lyon.
Cristiano Ronaldo is sent off in controversial circumstances while Lyon take advantage of a sloppy Manchester City performance.

Manchester City may be England's longest-running Champions League representatives (eight consecutive seasons) but the club grabbed another, less impressive record in the dispirited home defeat by Lyon, notching their fourth consecutive defeat in the competition. Three of these have been at the Etihad, just to make it even worse.

No English club had hitherto achieved this particular landmark, underlining City's schizophrenic relationship with the Champions League.

This has raised a number of important...

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino wears protective glasses to training

Having suffered a grotesque eye injury during Liverpool's clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, Roberto Firmino was a doubt to feature in their Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain three days later.

However, after starting on the bench, Firmino entered the fray late on and duly scored the winning goal in a dramatic 3-2 victory before celebrating by covering his eye with his hand.

Firmino then reported for training on Thursday morning sporting a brand new pair of protective glasses,...

Cristiano Ronaldo sending off shows he must change his game to succeed at Juventus

Steve Nicol believes Cristiano Ronaldo needs to adjust his game and his mindset as he ages, playing through the middle more for Juventus.
Juventus' Massimiliano Allegri believes VAR would've helped the referee make the correct decision when sending Cristiano Ronaldo off in their 2-0 win over Valencia.
The FC guys explain why it's unlikely Cristiano Ronaldo's red card against Valencia will be overturned, even though they strongly disagree with the sending off.
Real Madrid head coach Julen Lopetegui prefers to talk about his whole team after their win over Roma.
Cristiano Ronaldo is sent off in controversial circumstances while Lyon take advantage of a sloppy Manchester City performance.

The debate over the justification for Cristiano Ronaldo's Champions League red card in Juventus' 2-0 win against Valencia will probably outlast whatever suspension he receives from UEFA, but what cannot be argued against is that the 33-year-old only has himself to blame for the mess he now finds himself in.

On first inspection, and then with the benefit of replays from all angles, Ronaldo's dismissal following his clash with Valencia's Jeison Murillo appeared soft.

But it was Ronaldo's stupidity...

The Champions League is back with a bang, but who were the stars? Here's the best XI from Matchday 1.

GK - Wojciech Szczesny (Juventus)

Juve performed heroically for an hour with 10 men to win 2-0 at Valencia after Cristiano Ronaldo's red card. They may have had to suffer a few flutters near the end had Szczesny, who is making their No. 1 spot his own after Gianluigi Buffon's departure, not saved Daniel Parejo's late penalty -- ensuring a continuation of their superb away form was guaranteed.
