Diego Simeone and the Atletico Madrid train roll on in Champions League

Mario Mandzukic's hat-trick propels his Atletico side past Olympiakos to earn their way into the next round of Champions League.

MADRID, Spain -- If familiarity breeds contempt, then nobody told Atletico Madrid. The Estadio Vicente Calderon saw it all and then some last season, and it bounced and boiled again as their side tore apart Olympiakos to secure safe passage to the last 16 of the Champions League, the competition which they came within a heartbeat of winning last May in Lisbon.

While performances since the start of the season have shown the spirit instilled by Diego Simeone is alive and well in a considerably tweaked...

Arsenal's win vs. Dortmund a step forward, but bigger strides needed

Yaya Sanogo scored an early goal and Alexis Sanchez added another in the second half as the Gunners cruised to a 2-nil win over Borussia Dortmund.

After a difficult past few weeks, there was finally a moment of levity for Arsene Wenger to go with what was a genuinely uplifting performance in a 2-0 Emirates win versus Borussia Dortmund.

The Arsenal manager was asked, now that second-round qualification is secured, how his team could go about improving their poor knock-out record in the competition. Wenger smiled.

"First, send a different guy to the draw. If you look at our last five or six," said the Gunners' manager.

Mandzukic inspires Atletico Madrid's thumping win over Olympiakos

Mario Mandzukic's hat-trick propels his Atletico side past Olympiakos to earn their way into the next round of Champions League.

MADRID -- A trio of observations on Atletico Madrid's 4-0 win vs. Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League.

1. Mandzukic not better or worse than Costa, just different

This time last year Atletico were Champions League dark horses, seen as a team with potential but not enough experience to really challenge. Diego Simeone's side made such predictions look silly as they steamrollered giants including Milan, Barcelona and Chelsea and then almost saw off Real Madrid in the final.

This year, with...

Arsenal claim morale-boosting win vs. Borussia Dortmund

Yaya Sanogo scored an early goal and Alexis Sanchez added another in the second half as the Gunners cruised to a 2-nil win over Borussia Dortmund.

LONDON -- A trio of observations on Arsenal's 2-0 win versus Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League.

1. Gunners find cheer

After Alexis Sanchez scored Arsenal's second goal, a gleeful Arsene Wenger made his way to the touchline. The Gunners' two goal scorers against Borussia Dortmund were both vindicators: Yaya Sanogo's first for the club is hoped to be the first of many, while Sanchez has been worth every penny of the 35 million pounds paid for him.

Bright spots in a bad spell, these were...

Sergio Aguero proves he is the man who can keep Man City in Europe

Sergio Aguero scored a hat trick to lead Manchester City to victory against 10-man Bayern Munich.

MANCHESTER, England -- Snatching glory from the jaws of farce and with typical poise, Sergio Aguero reversed the recent trend of Manchester City's uneasy relationship with Champions League football.

"If you want to succeed at anything, you need a special player in special form, otherwise you just don't win anything," said the relieved City captain, Vincent Kompany. "When he's in that form, he makes things achievable that otherwise wouldn't be."
