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...

Andrea Pirlo and Juventus a tactical handful all night for Real Madrid

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. Tonight 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 this final...

History means nothing in the Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich duel

The ESPN FC team discuss Robert Lewandowski's mask he will be featuring in Bayern Munich's clash with Barcelona, where Raf Honigstein believes Lewandowski seems to be comfortable despite suffering a fractured nose and jaw at the end of April.

Beware the law of small numbers. Up until the semifinal in Belo Horizonte last summer -- you'll probably remember, it finished 7-1 -- Germany had never beaten Brazil at a World Cup before. They had not even managed a draw against the Selecao. Only defeats. Or, to be a bit more accurate: one defeat, in their one and only meeting up until then, in the 2002 final in Yokohoma. 2-0, Brazil won that one.

When the sample size is so small, it's not a good idea to draw grandiose conclusions. Yes, FC Bayern's...

Thomas Vermaelen ready for Barcelona debut after injury

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop does not feel Bayern Munich are much of a threat to Barcelona without the likes of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Craig Burley are in agreement that Barcelona are the favourites to advance to the Champions League final, but Burley feels Pep Guardiola and Bayern Munich certainly have other plans.

Barcelona defender Thomas Vermaelen could finally make his debut for the Catalan club in Wednesday's Champions League semifinal first leg at home to Bayern Munich.

Vermaelen joined Barca from Arsenal for £15 million last summer having passed a medical at the Camp Nou.

However, the Belgium international suffered a serious hamstring injury and he has only recently been given the medical all-clear to begin full training with his teammates.
