The champions league round has just sufficed and we are now looking forward to witnessing the pleasure, or disappointment, which depends a great deal on your view point pertinent to a tournament with no representatives of Premier League involved in such a massive tournament. This fact apparently remains true especially after a week in which Barcelona secured their spot atop the power ranks. The top four teams stayed the same while the Europe’s best and biggest clubs keep on fighting for supremacy beneath their aim. The next quarter finals of the Champions league are projected to spark emotional matches among the competitors, especially when taking into account the draw in which there are some old foes who were paired in the last version of Champions league.
1. Barcelona shows no change in the Power ranking
FC Barcelona keeps on fighting form strength to strength and are entirely ready for Sunday’s big match against Real Madrid, El Classico, at their home, Camp Nou. Last week’s victory against Eibar turned into an impressive and fascinating match with a 1-0 win over Manchester City, in which Barcelona has sealed 3-1 aggregate so as to secure their spot in the Champions League quarter finals. The top three continue to spark their dazzle. Messi has scored 36 goals in just 31 games, a great achievement for a player holding four Ballon d’Or trophies, since the 3-1 loose in October. Do you think he will score another pair of goals this week?
2. Bayern Munich stays at the top
The enterprise of winning has been a culture in Munchen squad under Pep Guardiola’s regime: a 4-0 rout against Werder Bremen last weekend, which was capped by two goals fro Robert Lewandowski. The win keeps Bayern Munich 11 points clear atop of the league, Bundesliga. Thomas Muller stroke another goal in and David Alaba curled in what is currently becoming a stunning with a superb free kick just before the first half got ended. The victories that the team has achieved clearly shows that the team has been starving for gaining more trophies.
3. Juventus remains the same
The serie A champions posed their power and versatility this week with a couple of tough games facing the team. First, they barely created a sweet in a victory by 1-0 over Palermo just before facing Dortmund with a convincing gap of 3-0 in the Champions league round in the 16 second leg. Morata scored in the two games as he kept on his fascinating performance.
