Liverpool vs. Real Madrid: Head to head

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti continued his praise for Cristiano Ronaldo who is currently on a goal-scoring tear.

They are two of the most successful clubs in Champions League history, and while 10-time winners Real Madrid may easily beat Liverpool's five European Cups, it is the Anfield club that have dominated their meetings.

Of their three fixtures against each other, Liverpool have won every single one, and by an aggregate of 6-0. They have beaten Real by big margins and on the biggest stage, having claimed the 1981 European Cup final between the two 1-0, and then slaughtered the Spaniards 4-0 in the 2009...

QPR fans watch pathetic soap opera unfold through their fingers

The ESPN FC crew react to Harry Redknapp's comments concerning Adel Taarabt's weight issues, and believe this may be the last straw with the already out of favour QPR midfielder.

Anyone interested in Queens Park Rangers, football or the mockumentary style of television and film perfected by Spinal Tap and The Office, should watch The Four Year Plan.

The film, released in 2012, documented a truly shambolic spell at Loftus Road where co-owner Flavio Briatore ran the club with complete abandon, hiring and firing managers on whims. Sadly it was not a comedic piece of cinema; it was a genuine documentary -- an accurate portrayal that accidentally dipped into moments of farce.

Liverpool, Real Madrid and the difference five years makes

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes the only way Liverpool can survive against Real Madrid is to flood the middle of the park and kill the game.

Rafael Benitez got the first message, as he was having his lunch. It was February 2009, and the Liverpool manager was sitting in the team hotel in Madrid, wearing his Liverpool club tracksuit, surrounded by his Liverpool players and coaching staff.

He checked his phone, the one Liverpool had furnished and paid for. The text was from a friend.

"Apparently, you're not Liverpool manager anymore," it read.

That would be the first of dozens of messages Benitez got that afternoon. They would come...

Financial irresponsibility at the heart of Botafogo and Deportivo Quito's issues

Botafogo and Deportivo Quito played off against each other in the Copa Libertadores in February.

At the start of the year, Botafogo of Brazil met Ecuador's Deportivo Quito in the qualifying round of the Copa Libertadores -- South America's Champions League.

It should have been a happy occasion for both. For Botafogo, it was the first time they had appeared in South America's premier club competition since 1996. For Deportivo Quito, it might have appeared to mark their consolidation. A traditional club from the Ecuadorian capital, they ended a 40 year wait for their third championship win in...

Paris Saint-Germain leave it late against plucky APOEL

David Luiz and Thiago Silva were paired together in a competitive match for the first time since the former arrived from Chelsea in the summer.

Paris Saint-Germain left it late to squeeze past APOEL Nicosia 1-0 in their UEFA Champions League Group F clash in Nicosia on Tuesday, but it was not just goal scorer Edinson Cavani who the French champions were indebted to.

While the Uruguayan was doing the business at one end, David Luiz was making the difference at the other and played a major role in PSG's first clean sheet of this European campaign.

Bayern Munich could have been all '10s' in player ratings vs. Roma

Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben reflects on his team's comprehensive performance in a 7-1 drubbing of AS Roma.

Admittedly, "Rome wasn't built in a day" but Bayern Munich managed to completely dismantle AS Roma with an absolutely stunning display in the Italian capital. Five unanswered first-half goals silenced the home fans in a sell-out Olympic Stadium. Bayern eventually romped to a 7-1 win -- a record away success in European competition and their largest victory against Italian opposition.
