Cruzeiro net big win over River Plate in Libertadores but fail to impress

Marquinhos got the only goal of the game.

The first legs of the quarterfinals in the Copa Libertadores, South America's Champions League, all ended in single goal victories. But there is no doubt as to who was the big winner of the week.

There were 1-0 wins for Emelec of Ecuador over Tigres of Mexico, Santa Fe of Colombia over Internacional of Brazil and for Guarani of Paraguay over Racing of Argentina. But Brazilian side Cruzeiro's 1-0 win over River Plate of Argentina has much more value. Cruzeiro were the away side. All the others were...

Premier League: Top 10 memorable moments of the season

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said his side's 3-0 defeat to West Brom was due to winning the Premier League title too early and lack of competition from top contenders.

The final round of games in the Premier League are nearly upon us, so there's no better time to sit back, take stock, and look at 10 of the finest moments witnessed this season:

Bobby Zamora's dinked goal

One weekend in April saw some extraordinary goals, from Charlie Adam's 65-yarder to Jermain Defoe's thunderbolt against Newcastle. However, arguably the best came from Bobby Zamora against West Brom, chip-volleying over a bewildered Ben Foster with the outside of his left foot, even gently kissing the bar on the way in.

Nigel Pearson holds down James McArthur

While he has guided Leicester to safety, it's been an interesting season for Nigel Pearson. He got involved in an argument with a fan, called a reporter an 'ostrich' and, perhaps most famously, seemed to get Crystal Palace midfielder James McArthur in a chokehold on the touchline, an incident that nearly cost him his job.

Battle(s) of the Weekend: Hull vs. Man United/Newcastle vs. West Ham

Relegation from the Premier League is not the worst thing ever. Really, it isn't. Sure, it stings and forces an adult's eyes to leak, but then after unburying your red face from the safety of your scarf you realise you're headed for arguably a better, purer place. The Championship is a very...

Alessandro Del Piero talks Champions League, MLS and his Juventus legacy

Alessandro Del Piero spent 19 trophy-laden seasons with Juventus before setting off for pastures new.

When Juventus last appeared in the Champions League final, the team was captained by Alessandro Del Piero. The year was 2003, Del Piero was appearing in his fourth European Cup final in seven years and Juventus seemed destined to contend for European titles for years to come.

But Juve's fortunes turned with the Calciopoli scandal in 2006, in which the club was relegated to Italy's Serie B as a result of allegedly manipulating referee selections. The club failed to reach another Champions League...

Newly crowned La Liga champions Barcelona lead Power Rankings

The ESPN FC crew discuss the latest power rankings which see Barcelona and Juventus on top, as Chelsea slide down the list following their 3-0 loss to West Brom.
ESPN FC's Sid Lowe discusses Barcelona's sixth La Liga title in 10 years, citing the early season struggles allowed Luis Enrique's side to band together.

As Europe's domestic seasons draw near a close, titles are being handed out thick and fast. Now adorning the Liga crown, it's no surprise that Barcelona once again tops Shaka Hislop's Power Rankings.

1. Barcelona (no change)

Twelve months ago, Barcelona were forced to watch Atletico Madrid celebrate their La Liga title at the Camp Nou on the final day of the season. Sunday, the Catalans returned the favour as their 1-0 win at the Vicente Calderon ensured the Liga trophy would return to Barcelona.


Juventus come through final test against Lazio with Coppa Italia win

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti breaks down Juventus' enthralling 2-1 Coppa Italia final victory over Lazio.

In 1958, Juventus president Umberto Agnelli asked the Italian Football Federation if they could commemorate the fact his side had won their 10th Scudetti by stitching a gold star on their shirts. A tradition was born. Fifty seven years later, his son Andrea will now request that they inaugurate a silver one to mark the club's 10th Coppa Italia.
