1. Messi and Neymar have clicked

Barcelona's in-form strike pair started the game as if the idea were to get the game decided early ahead of Saturday's La Liga clasico at Real Madrid. Neymar put Barca ahead on just six minutes, with Lionel Messi making it 2-0 just on the first half's midway point.

The first goal was a perfect example...

Three Points: Roma vs. Bayern Munich

Bayern's onslaught of 5 first-half goals keep their perfect record and go 5 points ahead in Group E of the group stage of the Champions League.

A trio of observations on Bayern Munich's 7-1 win vs. in the Champions League.

1. Football from another planet

Mamma mia san mia. Officially, Bayern Munich were playing in Italy on Tuesday night but it sure felt as though they were out of this world.

Five-nil up after only 36 minutes, a scoreline without precedent for an away team in the Champions League, until of course Shakhtar simultaneously matched and surpassed their feat by going into the interval six to the good vs. BATE, this was precisely...

Player Ratings: Manchester City bipolar vs. CSKA Moscow

City give up a late penalty as 2 second-half goals from Moscow see them earn a point in front of an empty stadium.
James Milner's first-half goal was a City high point. Unfortunately for the visitors, things took a turn for the worse after halftime.

Manchester City took two giant strides towards righting some of their European wrongs in an eerie and strained atmosphere in Moscow then promptly fell flat on their faces and handed everything they had gained back to the hosts.

It was a true Jekyll and Hyde performance from the Blues, who evidently managed to drink something potent and ugly at halftime that transformed them from a side in total control to one dallying on the back foot and inviting the disaster that finally befell them.

Three points: Chelsea run riot over NK Maribor in Champions League

Didier Drogba scores a penalty against NK Maribor that will make some fans reminisce of his Champions League-winning finish in Munich.

LONDON -- Three observations on Chelsea's 6-0 win over NK Maribor at Stamford Bridge.

1. Blues cruising through

As Champions League goals flew in across Europe, Chelsea did their bit for London. Maribor were not expected to be much of a challenge, but were brushed aside by a consummately professional performance that takes Chelsea into a command of Group G that they cannot now be expected to relinquish.

This was their biggest win in their 15 years of Champions League football. Win in Slovenia in...

Why Stephen Keshi had to go as Nigeria head coach

Stephen Keshi guided Nigeria to the second round of the World Cup, but is now out of a job.
Stephen Keshi guided Nigeria to the second round of the World Cup, but is now out of a job.

It was always going to happen. Stephen Keshi's forced departure as Nigeria coach had always been a matter of when, not if.

As a matter of fact, were it not for the crisis which engulfed the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) immediately post-World Cup, where the body was split in two leading to a FIFA ban that was later lifted, the former Super Eagles captain would have been relieved of his job way earlier.

Outsiders will be taken aback at the firing of a man who delivered Nigeria the African...

Four ways to end Toronto FC's playoff drought in 2015

ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman and Alexi Lalas discuss the next moves for Toronto FC and their star players like Michael Bradley and Gilberto.

Well before the inevitable became official and Toronto FC's postseason hopes were mercifully extinguished on Saturday by -- predictably -- last place archrival Montreal, there were questions.

Like, how could a team that looked so promising when the 2014 campaign kicked off finish on a 2-7-3 run that ended with an unprecedented eighth consecutive playoff miss?

How did a year that began with the ballyhooed, $100 million signings of Michael Bradley and Jermain Defoe finish as the most disappointing...
