Chicharito stay would be a win-win for Real Madrid

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has praised Chicharito's impact in the their recent wins.

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez grabbed the headlines after Real Madrid's victory at Balaidos on Sunday night, scoring twice in a hard-fought 4-2 triumph that kept the side's title hopes alive. At just the right time from the point of view of both player and club, Chicharito has gained a position of importance within the team. Real's plans for Chicharito remain vague -- "at the end of the season" is manager Carlo Ancelotti's mantra -- but a striker signed on loan for a €2.5 million fee and a...

Tigres peaking at right time, while Tijuana continues fall in Liga MX

ESPN FC's Brian McBride, Alejandro Moreno and Alexis Nunes discuss what sort of legacy Cuauhtémoc Blanco has made for himself.

With the Liguilla and relegation race coming into full view, it will be fascinating to see what happens in the final two weeks of the Liga MX season.

Only six points separate the first-place Chivas and 14th-placed Chiapas; showing just how narrow the differences are in the final stages of the Clausura.

Here are my updated power rankings for Liga MX:

1. Tigres (+1)

Despite a tough schedule to end the Clausura, Tigres has been able to become the most in-form team in Mexico. The club has only...

Here are the Liga MX best XI:

Damian Alvarez: Forward, Tigres -- Tigres dominated the weekend matchup against Queretaro, winning 3-1 even while playing away. Alvarez scored twice to virtually seal up a liguilla...

Roma losing grip on Champions League place after loss to Inter

Mauro Icardi celebrates scoring the match-winner for Inter vs. Roma on Saturday.

Douglas Maicon has taken part in just 14 matches for Roma this season, half the number he played in last season despite the added fixtures of European football this term. His persistent knee ailments kept him sidelined for most of November, he made a the briefest of returns around January before re-injuring himself and has been out since February.

Now, it seems his season is over. Sky Italia reported Monday morning that Maicon's injury has not progressed as the club would have liked. This is...

Atletico must act quickly to secure new contract for Griezmann

The ESPN FC panel weigh in on whether or not Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was right to criticise Atletico Madrid's playing style.

As Antoine Griezmann wheeled away in celebration after tucking in his second in Atletico's 3-0 win at home to Elche this weekend, little did he know that he had just created a piece of La Liga history.

His third brace in as many league outings saw the diminutive attacker reach 22 league goals for the season. The figure is the highest number of goals totalled by a Frenchman in Spain's top flight, surpassing the 21 scored by Real Madrid's Karim Benzema in 2011-12. It also usurps the kind of numbers...

Jurgen Klopp aiming for a German Cup victory over Bayern Munich

Borussia Dortmund continued their pursuit of a Europa League place with a 2-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp called for his players to finish the season on a high as he prepares for life away from the Bundesliga club.

Borussia Dortmund travel to the Allianz Arena on Tuesday to play the DFB Cup semifinal against newly-crowned Bundesliga champions FC Bayern. Out of all the possibilities (Wolfsburg and third division Arminia Bielefeld are the other semifinalists), away to Bayern was the toughest draw imaginable and it's hard to say whether it will be an epic clash with drama or a ruthless wipe-out.

"It's my dream to drive on a truck one last time around the Borsigplatz with a good reason" Dortmund's manager Jurgen...
