Uber-confident Real have designs on greatness

A warm morning greeted Real Madrid in Marrakech, for their first training session since qualifying for the FIFA Club World Cup final.

Cristiano Ronaldo's attempt to score against Cruz Azul at the Club World Cup with a rabona caused a bit of a stir in Mexico. Fox Sports commentator Raul Orvananos described the Real Madrid forward as a "clown" and although he issued an apology later (to Real fans, if not the player) he refused to alter his appraisal and went on to say that Ronaldo's trickery was tantamount to making fun of the Mexican side, who were 3-0 down at the time.

It's an opinion that Orvananos is not alone in holding:...

Three Points: Real Madrid vs. Cruz Azul

Real Madrid eased into the final of the FIFA Club World Cup with a comfortable 4-0 win over Mexican side Cruz Azul.

Three things taken from Real Madrid's 4-0 win over Cruz Azul in Tuesday evening's World Club Cup semifinal at Le Grand Stade de Marrakech.

1. Memories of Lisbon

There was a certain symmetry about the identity of the game's opening goal scorer. Madrid would not have been playing here if not for Sergio Ramos' late intervention in the Champions League final last May, and it was the centre half who headed them ahead on 15 minutes -- meeting Toni Kroos' superbly delivered free kick and glancing...

Real Madrid seek fitting end to 2014 with Club World Cup glory

The ESPN FC team respond to your questions about when Real Madrid's win streak will end and whether or not Luis Enrique is the man for Barcelona.

Real Madrid are travelling to this week's Club World Cup in Morocco confident of ending what has already been a historic 2014 calendar year by adding another trophy.

Back in January, Cristiano Ronaldo won his first Ballon d'Or as a Blancos player. Then the Copa del Rey and long-awaited Decima Champions League titles were secured -- with domestic rivals Barcelona and Atletico Madrid the beaten finalists, respectively, making the dramatic wins even sweeter for Madrid fans.

There were a few hiccups...

Real Madrid should be quietly pleased with Schalke Champions League draw

The UEFA Champions League round-of-16 draw is set and features several attractive matchups.

If Real Madrid had been allowed to pick an opponent to face in the last 16 of the Champions League, it may well have been Schalke 04.

The Bundesliga side do not lack individual talent, and have traditionally been a solid team unit, finishing third, fourth and third in the German top flight over the past three seasons and outside the top seven just twice this century. However, Schalke have a relatively new coach in Roberto Di Matteo, who took over from Jens Keller in October, while star midfielder...

Champions League round-of-16 draw pits familiar foes against one another

The ESPN FC panel discuss which teams can be considered Champions League favourites and whether Mourinho would rather win the Premier League or the Champions League.

It is a remarkable that, for a competition that now hasn't seen a repeat winner for 25 years, we still see so much repetition in the Champions League knockout rounds.

This year's last-16 draw features three ties that took place last season alone, as well as a restaging of the 1997 final. There also are similar features: Real Madrid got an easy draw, Bayern Munich should waltz through and it's difficult to escape the feeling that we're going to see the ongoing trend of all the teams who were first...

Torres back to Anfield? Also, Prem giants desperately seeking Strootman

Liverpool may be struggling, but could Fernando Torres really get them out of this funk?

Sit down for this one, Liverpool fans: The Daily Star reports that the Reds are set to swoop for former striker Fernando Torres in January.

On one level, such a crazy deal makes sense. Daniel Sturridge's injury issues, Mario Balotelli's tough transition, Rickie Lambert's so-so production and Fabio Borini's Borini-ness caused Brendan Rodgers to start Raheem Sterling as the Reds' lone striker at Old Trafford this Sunday.

Yet on another more logical level, the sensible deal is utterly crazy....
