QF-FINAL PREVIEW





QR. FINAL PREVIEW : PSG VS FC BARCELONA and BAYERN MUNICH VS JUVENTUS :: SCROLL DOWN TO READ BOTH

BOTH WRITTEN BY-- ADHIRAJ DUTTA: 01.04.2013: After a short hiatus, the UEFA Champions League is back in action this week as the quarter-final round kicks off and how! Two mouth watering clashes result in the commencement of the last 8 stage as the cash rich French side Paris St Germain take on the mighty Barcelona while the consistent Bayern Munich host a rejuvenated Juventus side. We will provide you with a preview on the PSG vs Barcelona game.

PSG Team news

Paris St Germain is the only club from France that remains in the competition. Carlo Ancelotti rested a bulk of his first team players this weekend as his team edged out defending league champions Montepellier 1-0, thanks to a 80th minute goal from substitute Gameiro. Thus all his players are fresh and will be more than ready to dish out a challenge against 4 times European Champions Barcelona.

Star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic had his ban reduced from two matches to one after he was sent off in the first leg against Valencia. So this means he can start against his former employers and this is definitely a welcome news for the French outfit. Talented winger Lucas Moura is also back from injury and Ezequiel Lavezzi who is PSG's top-scorer in the Champions League was duly rested. Unfortunately Thiago Motta misses out due to a groin injury. Whether Carlo Ancelotti fields David Beckham at any point of this crucial tie remains to be seen.

Road to Quarter Finals : Paris St Germain were the toppers in Group A as they won 5 of their 6 group stage matches, losing only by a narrow 0-1 margin away at Porto. In the pre-quarter stage they edged out Valencia 3-2 on aggregate.

Players to watch out for : Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas Moura, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Thiago Silva

BARCELONA Team news

At what point is it the right time to start doubting Barcelona? Is it now? Probably not, but their performances against sides in the upper-echelon of European play have left a lot to be desired this season. It has also exposed defensive frailties that have otherwise been covered up by their ability to keep possession. But that does not mean you can question their greatness.

They still are the best at what they do and that's precisely why they are a wonderful team. Tito Valinova is finally back to the bench after a gap of two months, having received treatment for his cancer and that will be a morale booster for the Catalans. Also, Eric Abidal is also back in training after undergoing a liver transplant. However, Pedro is out for this game, midfield maestro Xavi Hernandez and left back Jordi Alba are racing against time to be fit.

Road to Quarter Finals: Like PSG, Barca were also the table toppers in Group G, grabbing 13 points from 6 matches. But they had suffered a major upset against Celtic, losing 1-2 and also drawing 0-0 against Benfica. In the first leg of the pre quarter final, they were outclassed 0-2 by AC Milan at San Siro.

Almost the entire footballing world had been saying how the era of Tiki-Taka football has finally come to an end and that Barcelona's domination is over. They were all proved how wrong they were when the two sides met again for the second leg at Camp Nou. Scoring a brace, Messi showed why he's one of the best players in the world and more importantly, the Catalans silenced their critics, demolishing the same team 4-0, thus convincingly winning 4-2 on aggregate.

Players to watch out for : Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas

PSG are unbeaten at home for 13 straight games in all competitions. But if there's any team which is more likely to end PSG's unbeaten streak, it's Barcelona.

Let's take a look at the Bayern Munich vs Juventus match at the Allianz Arena

Bayern Munich Team News:: Among the eight teams that have qualified for the quarter finals, Bayern Munich is by far the most consistent team. They almost have the Bundesliga title at their kitty, being 20 points ahead of Borussia Dortmund with only 7 games left, having lost only once in 27 games. They have the attack to score goals and also possess a rock solid defense- making them a very balanced side. The only Bayern absentee for this match is Mario Gomez who is out with a muscle strain. Moreover, they will go into this game after thumping Hamburger SV 9-2 with Claudio Pizzaro scoring as many as four goals.

Road to Quarter Final : Bayern predictably topped Group F scoring 13 points in 6 matches. In the round of 16, they breezed past Arsenal 3-1 in the first leg at the Emirates. However, Arsenal staged a tremendous comeback winning 2-0 thus tying the aggregate 3-3. But the Bavarians had scored 3 goals in their away tie, compared to Arsenal's two, thus being fortunate enough to progress to the quarter final on basis of the away-goal.

Players to watch out for: Phillip Lahm, Franck Ribery, Toni Kroos

Juventus Team News :: Juventus is indeed a rejuvenated side. It is indeed a Hollywood story if you take a look at their recent history. After Italian football was hit by the match fixing scandal, Juventus were relegated to Serie B. They secured promotion in the very next season and here they are, on the verge of winning two back-to-back Serie A titles and in the quarter finals of Europe's elite competition. Coach Antonio Conte has indeed worked very hard to take the Bianconeri to this level.

They are a confident side, having beaten rivals Inter Milan 2-1 during the weekend, thus going 9 points clear at the top of the table. Mirko Vucinic missed the Derby d'Italia due to illness and Sebastian Giovinco received a knock towards the end of the match. But both have travelled with the squad and they will be assessed by a late fitness test on the eve of kickoff.

Road to Quarter Final : Like their German opponents, Juventus also topped Group E with 12 points in the bag. In the Pre-quarter stage, they breezed past Scottish giants Celtic 5-0 on aggregate.

Players to watch out for: Gianluigi Buffon, Andrea Pirlo, Alessandro Matri

SF - LEG 1: Ronaldo's Madrid lost 1-4 to Borussia Dortmund in away of 1st Semi Final

25.04.2013 (UCL SF-1)- Borussia Dortmund   4-1   Real Madrid (FT)
BOR : Robert Lewandowski 8, 50', 55', 66' (Pen)
REM : C.Ronaldo 43'
===========================================
25.04.2013: ADHIRAJ DUTTA : Those who were rooting for an El-Clasico will be disappointed. On Tuesday night, Barcelona got humiliated 0-4 by Bayern Munich. Yesterday it was Real Madrid's turn as the 9 time European Champions got humbled 1-4 by another German club- Borussia Dortmund.

It was a one man show yesterday as all 4 goals were scored by Polish sensation Robert Lewandowski. The top scorer in Bundesliga with 23 goals simply steamrolled the Madrid defense as they had no answer to his skills. The Polish striker was well complemented by Marco Reus and Mario Gotze.

The latter, who is slated to move to bitter rivals Bayern Munich next summer was booed by his own fans but it did not reflect in his performance as he delivered a tremendous cross which was slotted home Lewandowski to give Dortmund a 1-0 lead.

Heaviest away defeat Result : Appearances in UEFA Champions League: 43

1988/89 : European Cup  1/2 final  AC Milan                  - Real Madrid 5:0


At the stroke of half time, it could have been 2-0 as Raphael Varane clearly manhandled Marco Reus but the referee waved play on and Madrid equalised through Cristiano Ronaldo after a terrible back pass from Neven Subotic.

But the Borussians remained unfazed by the equaliser and they came full guns blazing after the breather. They lead 4-1 in the first 20 minutes itself and then held on to come out emphatic winners.

The Madriditas are almost out of the competition but a 3-0 result at their own ground in the second leg can never be ruled.

===========================================
24.04.2013 : ADHIRAJ DUTTA : Revenge at last. Now you may be wondering why we are talking about vengeance while writing a review on how Bayern Munich made a joke of tiki-taka football last night as they thrashed Tito Valinova's Barcelona 4-0. It's because of this. Date: 8th April, 2009. Champions League quarter finals : Barcelona vs Bayern Munich. Venue: Camp Nou, Barcelona. Scoreline: 4-0. Winners : Barcelona. SCORERS?? Messi 9', 38', Eto'o 12', Henry 43'. . Eto'o and Henry is out of picture from Barca but Messi still in action after 4 years but?


how many times they met each other? SEE below. Out of 5 clashes, Barca won only 1 time, Lost 3 and drew 1.

24.04.2013 :2012/13 &bsp; CL &bsp; 1/2 Final &bsp; Barcelona - Bayern Munich 0:4 ----L



This match was played out only four years ago but not many remember the outcome as it was overshadowed when Barcelona lifted the Champions League trophy after out-playing the then defending champions Manchester United in the final. It's not everyday a team beats the Catalans by such a huge margin. In fact the last time Barcelona was beaten this comprehensively at such a big stage, was way back in 1994 when Fabio Capello's AC Milan pummeled them by an identical margin.

Now back to the match. It was all Bayern right from the start. They knew that they would not get much possession of the ball owing to Barca's style of playing. Thus Jupp Heynckes's strategy was quite direct: press the ball high up the pitch, remain patient and swoop the chance dispossess Barcelona, make swift counter attacks through the wings and also make full use of set pieces.

It sounds very simple but obviously quite difficult to execute. This was the first time that a team made such perfect exploitation of Barcelona's weakness and with such finesse, ever since the introduction of their possession-based short passing football under Pep Guardiola, who ironically will be the manager of the Bavarians from next season.

Thomas Mueller, often underrated by many, showed why he is such a great player as he scored two brilliant goals. Arjen Robben who has been the talking point of the season in the wrong way, was quite instrumental last night, scoring the third goal and proved that he does have excellent passing visions. Franck Ribery, true to his class, almost always nullified the Barca defence with his deft first touches and movements. Mario Gomez was the other scorer for Bayern.

Barca's star man and Ballon d'or winner Lionel Messi was kept quiet by Bastian Schweinsteiger along with Dante. Coming back from an injury, Messi did not look confident enough when he had the ball on his feet. Questions will be raised regarding his fitness as he did not look 100% fit.

Tito Valinova did not do the right thing in rushing him back. Midfield maestro Xavi who made a name for himself after becoming the first player to have a 100% passing rate in the last match vs PSG did not have a great match as he made a whole load of mispasses. The same applies for Andres Iniesta, Spain's hero in the 2010 World Cup.

Barca fans may point out that their star man Lionel Messi was not fit enough to play this match or that Mark Bartra had to be fielded since both Puyol and Mascherano were injured in the defense. Such excuses still will not take away the fact that their favourite team was simply outplayed by Bayern Munich and that they could have actually been humiliated 6-0 as two clear penalties were not awarded to Bayern Munich in the first half.

It's all done and dusted for Bayern in the first leg itself. Only a 'miraculous' miracle can help Barcelona make a comeback from this hammering. The Bavarians are well and truly on course for a well deserved treble. They have already won the league, are in the final of cup competition DFB Pokal and are well on course to secure a ticket to the Champions League final at London's Wembley Stadium.

===========================================

BARCELONA IS 30 MATCH MORE WIN THAN AC MILAN IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE- WHAT WILL BE TOMORROW ??

19.02.2013: AC Milan, the Italian Giant got their last win against Barcelona 1-0 in October 2004 at the San Siro in the group stages of the Champions League have not won any of their last seven meetings with Barcelona. AC Milan are on a six-game unbeaten run including four wins. The Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri may have to replace his forward set-up against Barcelona. It's fact that AC Milan have only scored one goal in their last four games at the San Siro in the Champions League.

Milan's Man City star Mario Balotelli, who scored four goals in three matches may be replaced with Giampaolo Pazzini in the central position while Stephan El Shaaraway who scored 15 goals in SERIE -'A is struggling with a knee problem. It's a fact that, among the teams in the Champions League last 16, AC Milan are the only one who have yet to win at home in this season's competition. Their last home win the competition was a year ago, against Arsenal (4-0, 15 February 2012).

UCL Semi-2nd LEG: All Eyes to Estadio Santiago Bernabeu between Real vs Borrusia

29.3.2013: SAIKAT BASU: : "HALA MADRID" - Will this slogan be roared at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu again tonight? After a devastating lose at West Falenstadion to Borussia Dortmund last Wednesday, the Spanish Giants have regained their pace after winning the Madrid Derby by 2-1 on.

The visitors, who made eight changes with Borussia Dortmund in mind, went behind after just three minutes when Radamel Falcao was allowed to head home at the far post. Parity was instantly restored though, Angel Di Maria's soft free kick deflected off Juan Fran and beyond Thibaut Courtois.

The Home Team was ahead at the start of the second half, as they dreamed of their first win against their neighbors for 14 years but their dream got shattered when Karim Benzema picked out Di Maria's wonderful run for the Argentinian to score what would prove the winner, so the Real guys are ready to face Borussia at their home ground to night.

On the other hand Last Tuesday, just 24 hours before the first leg of Borussia Dortmund's Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid, German News Daily Bild has published a scintillating news that Dortmund's star playmaker - Mario Gotze has agreed to join Bayern Munich in the summer.

Shorlty after the story was published, Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp met with reporters for his pre-match press conference and said "It could have been timed better. This news is not good for us. The timing of it is not ideal. Anybody can make their own minds up as to why it's come out now, but it is out."

It is remarkably noted that when the Borussia Manager is concentrating on players' transfer - then In an official press conference at Bernabeu Press Corner Jose Mourinho says "If we don't reach the final, the failure will be mine". Looking ahead to the second-leg meeting with Borussia Dortmund, Jose Mourinho does not hesitate to take responsibility for the possibility of his team being eliminated".

The manager avoided getting emotional about the game: "We have to respect the club's history. I don't like to talk about our chances of going through, especially when we have to come back from a bad result. It's difficult to do the mathematics when it's 4-1".

"In Dortmund I said it would be fair if this team were to win the Champions League. Football is often unfair. I was talking in a figurative sense. That day, the winners deserved to win and the losers deserved to lose. Football was fair in Dortmund", he said.

"I've read some comments by someone who was talking about using dirty and legitimate tactics. I talked about similar things when I was at Inter and the whole world jumped on top of me. Today we can talk about that. But we're so pure and innocent that Lewandowski scored four goals against us and we didn't foul him once", Mourinho remarked.

"We're going to play and try to get ahead. If we go one-nil up, we need two more goals to win. We have to take it from minute to minute, goal to goal, right to the death. If we play like we did in Dortmund, we'll lose. But if we play with team spirit, anything's possible. There, we played as if it was a friendly", he finished by saying.

To Borussia it is now or never but to Los gigantes espanoles it will be a come back fight and at this point of time they are too strategic to win the battle. The Football World is waiting with crossing finger to see an ethnic battle between Spain & Germany where Cristiano Ronaldo will be the key factor.

BRN : Toni Kroos 7', Tomas Mullar 21', Mario Mandzukic 77'
ARS : Podolski 55'.
Bryan Munich defeated Arsenal in the champions league match at the Emirates Stadium by a margin of 3-1 to reach the champions league quarter final on Tuesday night.

Bryan started attacking right from the kick off and took the lead with a brace of goals within 21 minutes of the first half. Bayern's first opportunity came when Tony Kroos coverts a chance from the near range when his pile driver beat the goalkeeper all hands down. Bryan got a chance just before their second goal when Muller sends in a cross from the right.

It was inches away from the stretching Ramsey and Kross met the ball but failed to finish from the edge of the 18 yards.Brayan increased the margin in the 21st minute of the match.A forward through by Franck Ribery' found Philipp Lahm in the right flank but his diagonal cross was blocked for a corner.

Kross swung it to the near post where Daniel van Buyten rose above the Arsenal defense to power in a header.Muller was successful enough to trap the ball place at the back of the net from a close range.

Arsenal created pressure to reduced the margin but the have missed some easiest of opportunities. A rare mistake by Schweinsteiger gives Arsenal possession deep in the Bryan half and, once again, it goes nowhere. A moment before that, Mandzukic of Bryan, had an opportunity by streaking 60 yards along the line with the ball at his feet, but his shot went wide.

Arsenal reduced the margin just after the break in the 54th minute when a corner from the right by Wilshere was cleared by the Bryan defense initially but the ball bounced at the top of the six yard box where Podolski made no mistake to place it home against his former club. Two half-chances go begging for Arsenal.

First, a through ball just gets away from Wilshere on the right side of the penalty area. Then Podolski's shot is blocked. The goal has injected a little life back into this Arsenal side, but not yet enough to really worry Bryan in open play.

Bryan increased the margin against the run of play.An excellent move from the right for Philipp Lahm to cross. The ball dropped up in the six-yard box, and Mandzukic was there to bundle it home. So, it will be a uphill task for Arsenal as they have yo won by a good margin in the second leg which is scheduled at Munich.

POR : Joao Moutinho 56'

Porto made an positive start to the game with their Russian forward Marat Izmailov shots straight into the hands of Willy Caballero with an early low right-foot drive from top of the 18 yards.But both the teams depend on the attacking games with the ball rolling from one end to the other. Porto had the territorial advantages in the 1st half created some of the opportunities but failed to create the positive results. As the first half were locked goalless with neither of the teams can convert goals.

In the 53rd minute the biggest chance of the match so far arguably as Fernando's splendid ball into Izamilov who failed to place the ball wide from close range. Big opportunity wasted by the hosts.

The only goal came in the Porto's way in the 56th minute when Sandro's excellently executed a through pass to Moutinho who places the ball into the net past a helpless Caballero. It was indeed a brilliant effort.Porto continued to create pressure on the Malaga deep defense but unable to increase the margin due to some good defensive work by the Malaga defense.

Malaga depend on the counter attacks as Isco is closed down by two Porto players, as another attempt at a Malaga attack ends with possession for the home side. Credit to the visitors though, to keep the score at 1-0 is impressive given the domination the hosts have enjoyed in this game.

Malaga will now have to wait for the return league which they will play in their home ground
