UEFA Champions League

Atletico Madrid was stunned, shocked, and flat out embarrassed as they have been eliminated from champions league play in the group stage (first round). They recently made the champions league final in 2014 and 2016. This is the first time they have been knocked out in the group stage since the 2009-10 season, where they found themselves in the europa league and eventually won the competition. We saw Manchester United (England), FC Basel (Switzerland), PSG (France), Bayarn Munich (Germany), AS Roma. (Italy), Chelsea (England), FC Barcelona (Spain), and Juventus (Italy) all advance to the next round. Eight more games tomorrow 12/6/18 to find out who else advances.

LIONEL MESSI STAYING AT BARCELONA

Arguably the best player ever and in present times (some say Cristiano Ronaldo) has signed a new contract extension to stay at FC Barcelona. it goes through 2021 and Messi said “I want to be here for my whole career, I’ve always said that it’s my dream to retire at Barcelona and we’re on the path to that.” Now as a Barcelona fan myself, I couldn’t be more happy. There was a lot speculation about him fleeing to Manchester City to re-kindle his relationship with coach Pep Guardiola when he was at Bar├ža 2008 – 2012 where they won two champions league titles. in closing, this is HUGE news for Barcelona fans and sad news for every La Liga team especially Real Madrid.
