The Spanish have this brilliant football word: pausa. Before I explain it, be assured that Real Madrid didn't have anything like enough of it while losing 2-1 to Juventus in Turin on Tuesday night in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal.

For English speakers, it is tempting to think of pausa as "pause" and someone who can "put their foot on the ball".

However, Valencia and Spain legend Gaizka Mendieta, who played in the 2000 Champions League final, expanded the concept to me: If you have...

Ramos and Carvajal miscues hand advantage to Juventus

Our football gurus discuss whether or not Carlo Ancelotti's tactics were too predictable in the match against Juventus.

Real Madrid can think of themselves as lucky to have escaped the Juventus Stadium with a 2-1 scoreline that keeps the Champions League tie between the sides alive ahead of next week's second leg after a below-par performance that could and should have been punished more severely by Massimiliano's Allegri team.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti again opted to play Sergio Ramos in midfield rather than trusting either Asier Illarramendi or Lucas Silva with the task and in Turin it was a decision that backfired...

Back in 2009 Sergio Ramos revealed his dream of patrolling the Real Madrid midfield despite the fact that the Spanish giants signed the Spain international from Sevilla for his defensive qualities. Ramos had started out at right-back but soon adjusted to become a stubborn centre-back, one who was occasionally used as a defensive midfielder by Juan Ramon Lopez Caro and Vanderlei Luxemburgo.

"I am improving and I practice a lot in training, but I am not [David] Beckham," he told Spanish newspaper...

Andrea Pirlo intimated before Tuesday's semifinal first leg against Real Madrid that he will walk off into the sunset if Juventus win the Champions League this season. Tuesday night was one step closer.

Grabbed by Sky Italia immediately after referee Martin Atkinson blew full-time on a 2-1 win, the playmaker felt that he and his teammates had made another statement in this competition to rival their performances against Borussia Dortmund. "We sent the message that we are here," he said. "We want...

Three observations from Juventus' 2-1 victory Tuesday over Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal.

1. Tevez the hero as Juve show they are a force to be reckoned with

Carlos Tevez was the Juventus hero with a goal and assist as his team shocked Real Madrid in Turin. Tevez was a pivotal player in the game right from the start, causing all kinds of havoc by floating off strike partner Alvaro Morata and regularly finding pockets of space amid the disorganisation of Madrid's...

Champions League in danger of losing its appeal by becoming too predictable

Take a By The Numbers look ahead of the Champions League semifinal first legs, as Real Madrid search for consecutive Champions League titles and Bayern Munich aim to continue their dominance at the Camp Nou.

The rhetoric is already being ramped up. Sergio Ramos has described the first leg of Real Madrid's Champions League semifinal with Juventus as one of "three finals" for Carlo Ancelotti's team this season. Lionel Messi is busy insisting that the prospect of meeting Pep Guardiola is not motivating Barcelona's players; Thomas Muller is confident his coach's intimate knowledge of his former club gives Bayern Munich the most slender of advantages.

This week is one of those rare occasions when the hype...
