Arsenal in the ascendancy as they take on Basel in Champions League

Arsene Wenger hopes Arsenal can carry the momentum of beating Chelsea over the weekend to UCL play against Basel.

How do you follow perfection? It was not just the result, a 3-0 win over Chelsea, or even the luminescent performance as Arsenal sauntered around their traumatised opponents with a display of stylish superiority which recalled some of Arsene Wenger's very best traditions, but the emotional pitch of the occasion, breaking a jinx against London rivals ahead of the manager's 20th anniversary, which made Saturday impossible to emulate.

A home match against FC Basel in the Champions League cannot and...

Celtic, Brendan Rodgers have plenty to prove vs. Man City in UCL play

Brendan Rodgers wanted the Man City job but now faces them as Celtic manager in Wednesday's UCL clash.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers and Manchester City have shared histories. It was City who stole the 2013-14 Premier League title once Steven Gerrard's slip and a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea derailed Rodgers' Liverpool team. Previously, in the summer of 2013, he was on a shortlist of candidates for a vacancy that eventually went to Manuel Pellegrini.

The pace of change in football means Rodgers, for whom the anniversary of his Liverpool sacking will arrive next week, is now in Glasgow while City are...

FC Basel embody the Champions League's struggles for smaller clubs

FC Basel are massive underdogs in Europe because it's hard to completely change the style that works back home.

On paper, Arsenal should be set for an extremely tough challenge in the Champions League this week. Their opponents, FC Basel, aren't merely seven-time champions of the Swiss Super League; they also boast a 100 percent record in this season's top-flight with nine victories from nine matches. Their 27 points are nearly double the number of their closest challengers, Young Boys. It's a staggering level of dominance.

Yet assess the odds for Wednesday's game at the Emirates and the implied probability...

Bayern Munich need Franck Ribery to behave in UCL clash with Atletico

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno looks ahead to Atletico Madrid vs. Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich have revenge on their mind as they travel to face Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, with midfielder Arturo Vidal vowing to eradicate the pain of last season's Champions League semifinal defeat to Diego Simeone's men.

Atleti knocked out the German champions on away goals five months ago -- the third straight season the Bavarians and Pep Guardiola had exited at the semifinal stage to a Spanish side. Bayern paid the price for their inability to snatch a vital away goal in Spain for a third...

Dortmund looking to continue great Westfalenstadion record against Real

Thomas Tuchel speaks ahead of Dortmund's UCL match against Real Madrid, and the threat Cristiano Ronaldo poses at all times.

After a one-year absence, the Champions League will return to the Westfalenstadion. For the fourth time since 2012, Borussia Dortmund's yellow wall will welcome Real Madrid, a matchup that never failed to excite in the previous six encounters and is the one to watch for on Tuesday.

The Black and Yellows sit top of Group F after trashing Polish side Legia Warsaw 6-0 on the first matchday, while Real Madrid eked out a stoppage-time winner against Sporting. Going by current form, the German side will...

Real Madrid's form is no great concern, but Dortmund will pose a serious test

Zinedine Zidane says he was thinking about Real Madrid's next match when he subbed Cristiano Ronaldo against Las Palmas.
Cristiano Ronaldo was visibly unhappy being subbed at the weekend, the FC crew discuss if it's being blown out of proportion.

Don't be surprised if there isn't a better football match anywhere on the planet this week than Borussia Dortmund's clash with Real Madrid on Tuesday.

It might also be the perfect examination of whether the Spanish patient has something fundamentally wrong -- or is just in temporary pain.

The negative prognosis is the one the Catalan media are gleefully trying to impose and the one that makes Real Madrid fans wake up in a cold sweat at night screaming: "There's no substance! It's all falling apart!"
