Man City can join European aristocracy with deep Champions League run

Man City defender John Stones isn't worrying about the recent criticisms of his defensive mishaps.

Adding Manchester City's enthralling 5-3 victory over Monaco to the emphatic demolition of Barcelona last November makes it tempting to ask whether City are beginning, at long last, to hit their stride in the Champions League. The gradual, year-on-year improvement sought by the club's owners in Abu Dhabi is clearly occurring. Not initially apparent, owing to three campaigns of false starts, the line ever since has been on the gradual climb.

From the initial stuttering start to life with the big...

Wolverine - aka Hugh Jackman - gets his claws on Champions League trophy

Social media erupted with Ranieri's sacking, Villarreal meet the Pope and much more in The Sweeper.
Relive Claudio Ranieri's best moments during his unforgettable season that saw Leicester City crowned league champions.

The Champions League trophy has been lifted by some incredibly famous hands over the years, with the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho and David May all getting their paws on UEFA's grand prize.

However, the iconic cup was hoisted aloft by two of the most easily-recognisable hands in the world on Friday morning, not least because they usually have eight-inch blades jutting out from the knuckles.

Indeed, Marvel superhero Wolverine -- or actor Hugh Jackman, as he's known professionally...

Goalkeeper - Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester City)

Leicester are somehow still alive and kicking in their tie against Sevilla, but it might have been a different story had Schmeichel not put in potentially one of his most important performances for the club. His penalty save from Joaquin Correa was added to with a string of other important stops -- and he was a...

Kasper Schmeichel keeps Leicester City in it but Ahmed Musa flops

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri said his side were scared to give up possession to Sevilla in the first half.

Leicester City rode their luck in Seville, but a resurgent second-half display saw Jamie Vardy score a vital away goal to give the Foxes a real chance of reaching the Champions League quarterfinals. The 2-1 loss at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan certainly felt like a victory.

Champs League loss to Atleti exposes Bayer Leverkusen's deficiencies

Man City and Atletico Madrid walk away impressive winners against their respective UCL round of 16 opposition in leg one.
The FC panel react to Atletico Madrid's dominant win over Bayer Leverkusen, and how they've quietly been advancing all year.
BT Sport highlight: A sublime Saul goal set Atletico on their way against Leverkusen, netting 4 crucial away goals to win 4-2 on the night.
A sublime Saul goal set Atletico on their way against Leverkusen, netting 4 crucial away goals to win 4-2 on the night.

Bayer 04 Leverkusen's defeat at home to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night came down to a difference in size, as well as two goals. The Spanish visitors proved eine Nummer zu gross, as they say in Germany -- one size too big.

On another night, the home side could have scored a goal more, get a penalty (Javier Hernandez had a decent claim for an elbow in the face), defended less amateurishly. But for all the good work Roger Schmidt's young side (their average age is below 24) did with the ball, for...
