Barcelona stay top as Juventus take advantage of Chelsea's slip

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop reveals his latest power rankings for this week, which feature Barcelona on top despite a 1-0 loss to Malaga.
The ESPN FC crew discusses the potential backlash from a winter World Cup, why English teams aren't thriving in European competition and whether Barcelona and Real Madrid will meet in the Champions League final.

It's been a week of little movement in the Power Rankings. Barcelona stay on top but there is a jump for Juventus, who leapfrog the Premier League leaders.

The Catalan giants retain top spot despite losing in the league last weekend.

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique lauded his side's first half performance as they won 2-1 at Manchester City in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie.

Malaga's defensive plan frustrated Barca to a such an extent that they managed just one shot on target through the second half of last week's defeat, which allowed leaders Real Madrid to again move four points clear in the title race.

The Blaugrana coach said in a...

Sergio Busquets' new deal is more good news ahead of Granada test

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop reveals his latest power rankings for this week, which feature Barcelona on top despite a 1-0 loss to Malaga.

Sergio Busquets put his signature to an improved contract extension on Friday that will keep him at Barcelona until 2019, and that is good news for a club that wants to return to winning trophies after drawing an unusual blank last season. Busquets proved again on Tuesday at Manchester City that he is a player for the big occasion; he will likely be involved again at Granada on Saturday as Barca attempt to return to winning ways in La Liga after last week's shock home defeat to Malaga.
