Can Andres Iniesta beat Pep Guardiola, the man who made him great at Barca?

ESPN FC's Martin Ainstein previews the Champions League semifinal as Barcelona takes on former manager Josep Guardiola and his Bayern side.

Let's go back to the Camp Nou press room in March 2009.

FC Barcelona have just beaten Athletic Bilbao 2-0. In the distance is the treble. They'll win it, too, in Pep Guardiola's first season. Exactly a month away is the Champions League quarterfinal, home and then away to the other FCB: FC Bayern München.

Guardiola is commenting on the match his side have just won and suddenly goes into overdrive. He says about his No.8 that day: "Andrés [Iniesta] stands alone. Beyond the fact that he's a terrific...

Tevez spearheads spirited Juventus victory over dismal Real Madrid

Carlos Tevez's second half penalty proved to be the decisive goal, as Juventus secured a 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League semifinals.
ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson reviews Juventus' 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal.
Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo kept his team firmly in the tie with this crucial header against Juventus.
Juventus forward Carlos Tevez earned and converted the game-winning penalty kick as his side took a vital 2-1 lead over Real Madrid in Turin.

Three observations from Juventus' 2-1 victory Tuesday over Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal.

1. Tevez the hero as Juve show they are a force to be reckoned with

Carlos Tevez was the Juventus hero with a goal and assist as his team shocked Real Madrid in Turin. Tevez was a pivotal player in the game right from the start, causing all kinds of havoc by floating off strike partner Alvaro Morata and regularly finding pockets of space amid the disorganisation of Madrid's...

Liverpool should use Europa League as platform for club's youngsters

Former Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry explains why the upcoming expansion at Anfield is a positive step for the club.

Weekend defeats for Southampton and Tottenham combined with Steven Gerrard's late winner against QPR have tightened Liverpool's grip on fifth place with just three games remaining. There is still the faintest of hopes that Manchester United's three-game losing streak may increase to four or even five and open the door for Brendan Rodgers' men to sneak into the Champions League places, but realistically they are likely looking at a fifth-place finish and participation in the much-maligned Europa...

The moments that defined Chelsea's Premier League-winning campaign

The ESPN FC team once again debate whether or not Chelsea played boring football, following Ruud Gullit's statements on Jose Mourinho's managerial style.

With 25 wins and only two defeats in the 35 games that it took for Chelsea to be crowned Premier League champions, it is clear that consistency has provided the fundamental base for the team's success. Yet despite their machine-like quality to churn out result after result, there are a few particular matches that stand out as either pivotal to the eventual outcome or symbolic of the Blues' return to the top of the English game this season.

The differences between Guardiola's Barcelona vs. Guardiola's Bayern

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 super club era, and the resulting repetition in the Champions League knockout stage, means it was inevitable that Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola would meet old club Barcelona at some point.

It's somewhat fitting that it comes in at the semifinal stage, because the 2013 semifinal between Bayern and Barca was effectively when Guardiola's reign at Bayern started. In reality, he wasn't literally involved in the tie, having departed Barca the previous summer. But Guardiola had already been announced...

Why Arsenal's superiority over Spurs, 'St. Totteringham's Day,' continues

ESPN FC's Craig Burley does not feel whatsoever that Arsenal can challenge Chelsea next season with the current squad they have.

Even when superiority is all but an inevitability, a local rivalry is vital to a football supporter's sense of identity. A glance down the road at one's rivals can bring schadenfreude, a sense of well-being through the failings of another.

Up in Scotland, Celtic fans have become experts in company law as they seek material to mock the mess at Rangers. Liverpool's recent disappointments are partially offset by being better than Everton, while Manchester United's Stretford End used to be adorned...
