Statistical breakdown of UCL semis

Five Aside

Statistical breakdown of Real Madrid-Juventus and Bayern-Barcelona

Take a By The Numbers look ahead of the Champions League semifinal first legs, as Real Madrid search for consecutive Champions League titles and Bayern Munich aim to continue their dominance at the Camp Nou.

The Champions League semifinals kick off on Tuesday. Here is a statistical look at both matches this week, complete with Soccer Power Index (SPI) projections:

Juventus vs. Real Madrid (Tuesday)

Real Madrid and Juventus are ranked third and fourth among the semifinalists according to SPI. As a result, each received its best possible draw for the remainder of the tournament. Real Madrid would have been an underdog against both Bayern Munich and Barcelona, but is instead a 62 percent favorite to...

Man United's sudden swoon opens the Champions League door for Liverpool

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol does not feel Liverpool will catch Manchester United, despite Louis van Gaal's side's poor form of late.

Well, thank God that's over, and by "that," I mean the worldwide conspiracy to stop Chelsea from Mayweathering us to death by boredom. Now that they have mercifully wrapped up this season's Premier League title, we get to enjoy three blissfully Mourinho-bleating-free weeks followed by the only game that matters anyway: the FA Cup final.

In the interim, the David Moyes imposter with the Dutch accent is trying desperately to keep Brendan Rodgers employed as United try to hand the final Champions...

Champions League semifinals rest on four one-on-one battles

Take a By The Numbers look ahead of the Champions League semifinal first legs, as Real Madrid search for consecutive Champions League titles and Bayern Munich aim to continue their dominance at the Camp Nou.

The business end of the Champions League is upon us, and with seven the minimum number of final appearances made by each team in this year's last four, the present semifinals promise to be particularly spectacular.

Real Madrid may be gunning to become the first team to defend the trophy in the Champions League era, but with a win in this competition the one achievement eluding Juventus in their post-Calciopoli scandal resurgence, the will of the Italians shouldn't be underestimated, and neither should...

Toronto FC build momentum, Dempsey and Martins the best strikers in MLS

The Philadelphia Union had their chances in the opening half, however it took a Sebastian Giovinco wonder-strike to give the visitors the win.

Toronto FC's long journey across MLS is finally at an end. After two months and seven games, a stretch marked by so much turmoil and speculation around the team and its biggest figures, TFC's stadium construction-mandated road trip concluded with a 1-0 victory in Philadelphia on Saturday.

With the result, TFC now owns a two-game winning streak just ahead of the home opener against next weekend against Houston. As is so often true, winning solves so many problems for a team under pressure. Toronto...

Real Madrid's big win; Terry's message; credit to Allegri; Bayern concerns

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno believes the pressure is back on Barcelona following Cristiano Ronaldo's thrilling hat trick against a Sevilla side who had not lost at home in 34 matches.

You step on the pitch with the table saying you're five points back. Sure, you have a game in hand, but it happens to be at Sevilla's Sanchez Pizjuan, where you haven't won since 2011 and, in fact, where no visiting team has won in 35 games.

You need to conjure up a result but, at the same time, you're playing your biggest game of the season thus far on Tuesday night in the Champions League, where you're 180 minutes away from the final and the chance to make it two in a row, something nobody has...

Newcastle United imploding into turmoil as they face relegation battle

Newcastle United haven't earned a point in the Premier League since Feb. 28.

Alan Pardew is not a man who generally needs an ego stroke. However, a glance at his record this season will provide one, and even not so much for the points he has gained at Newcastle and Crystal Palace, but for the ones those two clubs have won without him. Or, as the case may be, the points they haven't won.

Before Pardew's arrival, Crystal Palace earned 17 points from 20 games; since then, they have 25 from 15. Newcastle under Pardew gathered 26 points in 19 games, but after his departure they...
