Real Madrid

Stage is set for Chicharito

Real Madrid

Guardiola and Ancelotti still measured in Champions League, despite success

Bayern Munich need to create history if they're to overcome their 3-1 first-leg deficit to FC Porto in their Champions League quarterfinal.

They met in the past year's Champions League semifinals, but will they get the opportunity to do so again in this year's tournament? Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti should be two of the competition's untouchables, but the pair could be playing for their very futures in their current jobs, even though we're only at the quarterfinal stage of this year's edition.

In the case of Guardiola, his own tricky situation this week is still clearly influenced by that meeting between his Bayern Munich and...

Stage set for Chicharito to make Real Madrid impact

Brian McBride joins the ESPN FC team to discuss the importance of Javier Hernandez in Real Madrid's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Atletico Madrid.

"We need him," said Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti. The winter transfer window had just slammed shut and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez was still at Real Madrid. The Mexican had made just one league start for the European champions since joining on a season-long loan from Manchester United and Ancelotti's words seemed like words of comfort rather than words that would see the striker have a big involvement in Madrid's season.

Since then, Madrid's "Little Pea" has continued to warm the bench,...

Cristiano Ronaldo must be the hero for injury-hit Real Madrid to beat Atletico

The ESPN FC panel are joined by Santi Solari, where he discusses the impact of Luka Modric's absence to Real Madrid's midfield.
With so many key teammates out with injuries, the burden falls on Cristiano Ronaldo to beat Atletico Madrid. Can he do it?

The Champions League quarterfinal second leg between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid hangs perilously in the balance, the scoreline 0-0 from last week's game at the Calderon. Wednesday's hosts, Real Madrid, have suffered a slew of injuries to many of their top stars (Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Marcelo, with Karim Benzema also ruled out) while facing an Atleti side that has had Los Blancos' number of late.

If Cristiano Ronaldo didn't already face this situation, he'd probably have to invent...

Messi leads Barca to win; Real Madrid's injury woes - Five things we learned

Real Madrid and Barcelona continue their title pushes as they both pick up three points on the weekend.

Five thoughts gleaned from the weekend's action, as Barcelona beat Valencia and Real Madrid overcame Malaga but suffered some more injury issues.

1. Messi, not Luis Enrique, helped Barca overcome Valencia's pressure

Although Barcelona went ahead inside the first minute against Valencia through Luis Suarez at the Camp Nou on Saturday afternoon, the visitors absolutely battered Barca for most of the first half -- missing a penalty, hitting the post and generally controlling the game.

Barca were...

Ancelotti faces selection dilemma for Atleti showdown after Modric injury

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti insists his side's 3-1 win over Malaga was a positive match, despite Gareth Bale and Luka Modric both limping off with injuries.

Carlo Ancelotti may finally give Real Madrid fans what they have been craving all season and what he has stubbornly resisted -- a return to 4-4-2.

However, if the Italian does opt for a change in tact for Wednesday night's huge Champions League quarterfinal second leg against city rivals Atletico, it will not be through choice. Injuries to Gareth Bale and Luka Modric may force his hand to change from a preferred 4-3-3 but Madrid could be changing to a formation that has already worked this season...

Ronaldo and Rodriguez carry injury-hit Real Madrid to win vs. Malaga

Footballing legend Pele said that he considers Lionel Messi to be the best player in the world.
Cristiano Ronaldo padded his lead on the top of the La Liga scoring charts, scoring his 39th goal of the season and his 50th overall this campaign.

Real Madrid maintained the status quo at the top of La Liga with a 3-1 win over a committed and inventive Malaga at the Bernabeu, but there was a price to pay. Luka Modric is expected to be out for six weeks after picking up a knee injury and Gareth Bale limped off after four minutes with a calf strain.

The club's manager Carlo Ancelotti knows there is little room for error in the race for the title, hence fielding his strongest possible team, but prospects for the upcoming Champions League derby...
