Bayern Munich's historic 1974 win over Atletico began their dominant era

1974 European Cup Final
In 1974, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid participated in the only European Cup final to ever be forced into a replay.

In the early hours of May 15, 1974, a 16-year-old lad climbed aboard a coach in Vilshofen, a Bavarian town 110 miles northeast of Munich. He was tired and bleary-eyed but excited.

The coach was about to take him and his friends to Brussels, where they would watch the European Cup final between Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid. The boy was sure he would never again see a game as big as this one, so he didn't mind the long hours on the autobahn.

Of course he had no way of knowing that the match he...

Arsenal can't beat Barcelona? Not so fast -- here's their blueprint to victory

The ESPN FC panel share their thoughts on how Arsenal can limit Barcelona's chances and make the most of theirs on Tuesday.

It has been a long time since Barcelona lost a game. When Lionel Messi & Co. travel to the Emirates on Tuesday to face off against Arsenal, the Gunners are going to have to do something that 32 previous Barcelona opponents have failed to do, win, if they are to have any hope of advancing.

How exactly can Arsenal accomplish that? After they are done praying long and hard to the soccer gods, Arsene Wenger's men will have to figure out a game plan that is tailored to the unique challenges that Barcelona...

Juventus must learn from Liverpool's win if they are to defeat Man City

Alvaro Morata
Alvaro Morata's pace will be key to Juventus' game-plan against Manchester City.

As Juventus continue to revive their chances of making an impact on Serie A, Wednesday night presents them with a chance to qualify for the next stage of the Champions League if they manage a win against Manchester City. Having already beaten the English side 2-1 in the first leg, Juve are now looking to top the group by defeating Manuel Pellegrini's men again but it won't be easy.

When Juventus travelled to Manchester, most assumed the Old Lady would fail. Not only had she lost frequently in the...

Igor Akinfeev desperate to keep a clean sheet against Man United

On Tuesday at Old Trafford, Igor Akinfeev will be a man on a mission as the CSKA goalkeeper aspires to set a remarkable and long-awaited record, while putting an end to an equally remarkable but extremely unwanted one.

It's all about clean sheets. On Saturday, when CSKA beat lowly Ufa 2-0 to extend their lead at the top of Russian Premier League to a whopping nine points, Akinfeev equalled the domestic record of legendary Rinat Dasayev. He has now managed not to concede a goal in no less than 232...

Will Chelsea suffer a Champions League hangover vs. Southampton?

Hangover for Chelsea?

The common consensus, when British teams go out of the Champions League, tends to be that they it will benefit them when it comes to the Premier League; fewer fixtures, fewer problems, easier to focus on the task at hand. But for Chelsea, their exit at the hands of 10-man Paris Saint-Germain was a hammer blow and it wouldn't surprise me if there were an adverse knock-on effect this weekend.

Southampton are the visitors to Stamford Bridge this weekend and though Ronald Koeman's...

Chelsea to edge PSG, Basel spring a shock and Muller among the goals

The Champions League returns this week with the second legs of the respective last-16 ties and if Chelsea don't progress against Paris St-Germain it will be considered a huge failure.

That's because of the continued investment in the London club by owner Roman Abramovich, but more pertinently the fact that Jose Mourinho is desperate to win the competition with his side, having missed out in his first spell.

That's even before we mention the first leg, when Chelsea rode their luck a little to finish...
