Luiz Adriano full of ambition for Brazil and Shakhtar Donetsk

It was goals galore for Shakhtar Donetsk and Luiz Adriano who tallied five goals, four of which were in the first half against BATE Borisov.

Mention Luiz Adriano to any Shakhtar Donetsk fan or keen observer of the UEFA Champions League and they would invariably show bemusement over the bagel-shaped number of national team call-ups the striker had until Thursday when he was handed a maiden Brazil call-up by manager Dunga.

There are several explanations for this absence, the most important one being the obscurity of the Ukrainian Premier League and Shakhtar's iron grip on their domestic league in the last five seasons. One could also...

#FCdebate: Real Madrid or Barcelona -- who will win el Clasico?

Real Madrid? Barcelona? Draw? What do you think? Vote now!

The biggest game in club football is upon us. On Saturday, at noon ET (6 p.m. local time), the players of Real Madrid and Barcelona will step onto the Bernabeu pitch to compete in the 229th edition of el Clasico.

Both teams enter the game in prime form. Real Madrid have won five straight league games, scoring 25 goals in the process, while Barcelona have dropped just two points through eight games and have yet to concede a goal.

Who will win El Clasico?

And then there are the players ... Gareth Bale will miss the game...

Neymar thriving under the tutelage of Lionel Messi at Barcelona

Santi Solari gives his take on the partnership between Neymar and Lionel Messi.

Barcelona could unleash their all-South American forward line in Saturday's Clasico against Real Madrid -- Luis Suarez showed few signs of ring rust when he tuned out for Uruguay recently. The logic behind his signing would seem to lie in a recognition that, at the age of 27, Lionel Messi may be coming to the end of or even past his athletic peak. Rather than being the goal scorer, in the future his fabulous technical ability is likely to mean that he operates a little deeper, threading through...

Weekend battle: Manchester United vs. Chelsea

There is an apparent inevitability that Manchester United will be shamed at Old Trafford (not for first time in the past year) in Sunday's match against Chelsea. Things could indeed get ugly, for the bigger the club, the harder they fall. It comes down to just how cruel Jose Mourinho wants to be -- certainly,...

Power Rankings: Bayern Munich leapfrog Chelsea into top spot

See whether you agree with Shaka's picks this week.

The Power Rankings return after a well-earned week off, and the latest edition features a new leader.

1. Bayern Munich (+3)

After a week in which they scored 13 goals in two wins, how could Pep Guardiola's men not top my list? Every superlative they got for winning in Rome on Tuesday was deserved. Quite simply, Bayern were magnificent.

2. Chelsea (-1)

It's a bit harsh to drop the Blues out of first place after they won twice -- scoring eight goals in the process -- but Jose Mourinho's men fall more...

Flawlessly constructed Chelsea confident ahead of Man United match

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says Diego Costa and Loic Remy are expected to miss their match against Manchester United.

If you were looking for reasons Chelsea won't win the title, their midweek clash with Maribor was not a good place to start the search. It wasn't the scoreline that should chill the rest of the Premier League, it was the manner in which it was secured.

Chelsea aren't just a good team, they're a driven team. They are fully committed, utterly professional and they have very few weaknesses. Manchester United supporters should be rather concerned ahead of this weekend's big game.

Maribor, of course,...
