PARIS (AP) — The Anfield roar will be thunderous when Liverpool hosts Napoli, and the crowd will likely be just as loud in Belgrade when Red Star takes on Paris Saint-Germain. Group C has lived up to its billing as the toughest in the Champions League competition and any one of the three big teams can still go through — or out — on Tuesday. Napoli leads the group with nine points, one more than PSG. Liverpool has six points. To exit at this stage would be a big backward step for Liverpool after reaching last year's final, but much worse for PSG. Desperate to prove it belongs among Europe's elite, PSG has not reached the semifinals since its lone appearance there in 1995. After successive eliminations in the round of 16, PSG faces the potential humiliation of falling at the group stage for the first time since cash-rich Qatari investors QSI took over in 2011. Things will be tense, too, in Barcelona, where Tottenham likely needs a win to go through in Group B. PSG … [Read more...] about Champions League: Crunch time for PSG, Napoli and Liverpool
All time top scorer in champions league
The night was meant to be all about Ronaldo's first Champions League appearance for the club he has tormented so often down the years for Real Madrid.Ronaldo will miss Juventus' next match in the competition against Young Boys on October 2, and could miss his return to Manchester United three weeks later if his ban is set at two matches. Scholes, a notoriously clumsy tackler in his day, never earned more than four yellows in one campaign.The 33-year-old directly contributed to half of Real Madrid's Champions League goals between 2009-10 and 2017-18, coming top of the goalscorer charts in each of the last six seasons. I knew that I was working well and it was only a matter of time.And Bale, scorer of a brace in Madrid's defeat of Liverpool in last season's final, made sure of the points with a placed finish after racing through on goal from Luka Modric's pass, with substitute Mariano going on to add a third in stoppage time.Los Blaoncos will start the tournament without their former … [Read more...] about UEFA Champions League Report: Valencia v Juventus 19 September 2018
Sports Champions League Final Liverpool Real Madrid This Saturday’s Champions League final has been described as Real Madrid’s chance to cement itself as the dominant force in European soccer in the 21st century, or Liverpool’s opportunity to bring the glory days back to Anfield after a barren decade. Winners in three of the last four seasons, Real Madrid could become the first side to win the trophy three times in a row since Bayern Munich did so between 1974 and 1976. While the current Real side might not be as entertaining as the Barcelona teams that won the trophy three times between 2009 and 2015, winning a fourth Champions League in five seasons would overshadow their great rivals. Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo will be closely marked men when Liverpool and Real Madrid meet in the UEFA Champions League Final on May 26 at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev.

Many wonders why UEFA will appoint a more experienced referee in Bjorn Kuipers for the Europa League final and a seemingly controversy clouded Serbian centre man for a bigger game such as the Champions League final. He played on until halftime before he was replaced by Marco Asensio. 18 - Cristiano Ronaldo has equalled Alfredo Di Stefano as the all-time Real Madrid top-scorer in El Clasico in all competitions. Despite their continued domestic dominance, PSG fell short in Europe once again, crashing out of the Champions League with a round of 16 loss to Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo suffered an ankle injury recently, weeks before a massive Champions League final with Liverpool. After initially taking treatment, Ronaldo played on for 31 minutes here before Zidane made a decision to substitute him at half-time, which may at least offer Real encouragement. Gareth Bale later salvaged a point for Real by equalising in the 72nd minute yet you could understand Real's players feeling … [Read more...] about Cristiano Ronaldo will be fit for Champions League final, says Zinedine Zidane
