Season Review: Barcelona


How Atletico Madrid were rebuilt from debt-ridden club to Spanish giant

Atletico Madrid captain Diego Godin discusses the mentality that brings their team together in their toughest matches.

Diego Simeone's combative, tough-tackling Atletico Madrid go in search of European football's top prize this Saturday at Milan's San Siro stadium against rivals Real Madrid. But off the pitch, an equally tenacious approach is helping to rebuild a club once considered a basket case of the Spanish game.

For much of their recent history, Los Colchoneros ("the mattress makers") lay on shaky foundations, plagued by mismanagement and crippling debt that forced them to sell some of their best assets,...

James Rodriguez an awkward fit for Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the possibility of James Rodriguez moving from Real Madrid to Manchester United.

There has been plenty of speculation since the end of La Liga season regarding the future of James Rodriguez. The Colombia international, whose playing time has been drastically reduced during the second half of the season under Zinedine Zidane, no longer commands a clear role in the side and his performances when called upon have failed to reach a standard consistently high enough to present the Frenchman with any food for thought.

In his debut season at the Bernabeu, James lived up to the hype...

Real Madrid's transfer targets need to tick more than just the superstar box

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe assesses the possibility of James Rodriguez leaving Real Madrid this summer.

Dimitri Payet to Real Madrid? Silly season is upon us, and the football gods are to be worshipped for it.

However, the Bernabeu has been on the receiving end of a hammering before, so at this stage of the summer everything should be taken with a large pinch of salt.

Alfredo di Stefano's face said it all back in in January 2009. The late Real honorary president's reaction when Julien Faubert was unveiled as a Madrid player was a picture. Faubert reportedly cost €1.5 million for a six-month...

Dani Alves' rumoured departure from Barcelona makes no sense for the club

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno breaks down the Copa del Rey final between Barcelona and Sevilla

"I have followed my heart and the hearts of those who love me," Dani Alves tweeted last year after signing a new two-year contract with Barcelona following their treble-winning campaign.

Despite a lack of competition for his place, the doubts over whether he would extend his seven-year, 19-trophy stay at Camp Nou had been real. "I still have two feet inside the team, but one foot, a body and a head outside of the club," he'd said at a stirring news conference at the club's training ground a few...

James Rodriguez, Isco, Danilo and Raphael Varane failed at Real Madrid

James Rodriguez
James Rodriguez scored eight goals and provided 10 assists at Real Madrid this season.

The weeks preceding the most important match of the season -- the Champions League final -- seem like a good time to write even, unbiased reviews of this Real Madrid season.

These theoretically impartial appraisals take into account the squad's performance over a nine-month period, leaving aside only one match, but one that could taint our evaluation of certain players either positively or negatively depending on its outcome.

10 days before that fundamental match, it's fair to say that the end of...

Barcelona edge Real Madrid in La Liga as Atletico slip away; Sporting stay up

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains why he believes this could be Barcelona's most impressive La Liga title triumph yet.

Dermot Corrigan looks back on the best of the 2015-16 La Liga campaign in Spain and offers up a glimpse of what could happen in 2016-17.

Defending champions Barcelona began sluggishly, allowing Rafa Benitez's Real Madrid side to top the table in the early Autumn but, even with Lionel Messi injured, Luis Enrique's team took over by hammering Los Blancos 4-0 in November's first El Clasico. Then the Catalans' trip to the Club World Cup in December allowed Diego Simeone's much changed Atletico Madrid...
