Real Madrid ready to test their sparking form vs. Athletic Bilbao

Real Madrid's attack is impressing ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, despite Cristiano Ronaldo's struggles early in the season.
After signing a new contract with Real Madrid, Luka Modric says it's time he finally wins La Liga with the club.

Real Madrid host Athletic Bilbao in the Bernabeu on Sunday in a match that will truly test the mettle of Zinedine Zidane's Plan B in the absence of injured key players Sergio Ramos, Casemiro and Luka Modric.

Victory at Betis set Zidane's side back on track in La Liga after three consecutive draws but Gus Poyet's side were more than accommodating hosts and the Uruguayan still hasn't gotten to grips with his side's obvious defensive frailty, calling into question his choice to mirror the visitors'...

A dog made its way onto the pitch to briefly interrupt a quarter-final match between San Lorenzo and Palestino.

Anfield Cat, beware!

With prices in the transfer market escalating, the Blaugrana made an active decision to pursue players based on potential rather than to go after the game's...

Jordan Morris, Seattle's youth have the Sounders on the verge of the playoffs

Jurgen Klinsmann talks about the pressures put upon Jordan Morris and Jozy Altidore ahead of his side's WC qualifiers.

At the end of the 2015 campaign, the Seattle Sounders looked like a stock car that had been run into the wall one too many times. It was still able to get around the track most days, but the breakdowns due to wear and tear were happening too often.

By the time FC Dallas dispatched Seattle on penalties in the Western Conference semifinals last November, the Sounders were running out of bodies. Leo Gonzalez, Brad Evans and Ozzie Alonso were out injured. Marco Pappa and Nelson Valdez were less than...

The ESPN FC crew have little faith in Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte sending their squads out to attack on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho was asked about Paul Pogba following Manchester United's 4-1 Europa League victory over Fenerbahce on Thursday.

"First of all, in some of your mouths, he goes from the worst player in the Premier League to a great player in 48 hours," Mourinho told journalists. "I am not specifically saying it is you. I say media, especially the Einsteins. We know he is a very good player. We know he needs some time to show his potential."
