Klopp's side are running away with the Premier League title, dropping just two points all season, while Atletico are fourth in La Liga, 13 points behind leaders Real Madrid. Atletico are not the Atletico team they were before when they had that team of warriors, all fighters who were typical Diego Simeone players. They had a nasty side to it,\" says Terreur. I watched them play Real Madrid and it was a very boring game, you see a team that is not a team any more.
Overcoming history and now building a dynasty\"The history is no burden any more. It is the basis for what we are doing. Last year we had 97 points so we were really close - it's not like it's been up and down with us. Here's the second year now where obviously we are pretty good. Winning all the time, that's really difficult because the other teams are too good for that. They have a good chance to improve of course as well - we have to be better, they have to, we will, they will and then we will see who is best.

Blues win tight semi-finalChelsea, who were 4-1 winners at Arsenal in the WSL on 19 January to take the initiative in the league title race, will now bid for their first League Cup triumph. Emma Hayes' side were denied in the first half by Mary Earps' superb save to keep out Millie Bright's header, but Earps could not stop Mjelde's clinical finish from a very tight angle with 18 minutes to go.
France's extra-time 2-1 victory over Brazil in the World Cup's last 16 was watched by 59 million people - making it the most viewed women's soccer match of all time.

Over 2.5 goals have been produced in 43% of the visitors’ away games and Sporting have only kept clean sheets in 14% of their away games, which is why can see the visitors conceding a goal but winning the game 2-1. Exactly three goals have been scored in 29% of Santa Clara’s home games and a majority of Sporting’s wins this season (4 wins) have been obtained with a one-goal margin, which adds weight to our prediction for a 2-1 final scoreline.
The home team have lost only once in their past 10 home matches they are a team who wins often at home and not many of their matches are draws. They look to be in better form with the away team losing some of their most recent matches in football. Also the away team have not had much success at this ground in recent times it has been a very long time since they have come here and actually won a match of football. Can see them losing this match but will take the double chance on the handicap to be safe.
This was Chelsea's 10th Premier League defeat of the season; only in 2015-16, when they finished 10th, have they suffered more in a single campaign in the Roman Abramovich era (12). West Ham have now won three of their seven home league games under David Moyes since his return to the club (D2 L2), one more than they won in their nine Premier League matches at the London Stadium under Manuel Pellegrini this season (W2 D1 L6).
But we will have to listen to whatever the authorities say,\" he added. If they decide that (playing without spectators) that is the best measure to take, then we will have to oblige. Video - 'He has been scoring goals for 14 years' - Setien not concerned by Messi's barren spell00:33 Setien was speaking ahead of his side's La Liga game at home to Real Sociedad on Saturday, their first fixture since losing 2-0 to Real Madrid last Sunday and surrendering top spot to their rivals.
It's fair to say PSG's season is going exactly to plan so far and the side have been impressive across all fronts. In Ligue 1 they are well on course to retain their title and already have an 8 point lead at the top with a game in hand; they're also into the quarter-finals of the French League Cup and most impressively, they dropped just two points in the process of winning their Champions League group.

Auxerre is a slight favorite on the paper in this duel in front of domestic fans against Niort, but they will need to prove their quality on the pitch not just on the paper. Visitors are struggling against relegation, and after a victory in last round against Valenciennes, with a winning goal in last minute of the match, from their best scorer Sissoko, no doubt, their confidence is on the higher level. In this duel, Auxerre will be without suspended defensive midfielder Toure, and they are not a effective squad, by my opinion, they will have a lot of problems in this duel, with a bit of luck, and Sissoko in attack, Niort is able to win in this duel.
The Champions League is the Champions League but La Liga makes me happier, because La Liga is what it's all about,\" said Zidane. This is a tremendous feeling because what these players have done is incredible. I am lost for words because I am too emotional. The players are the ones who have fought for this. It's true I've played my role but they are the ones who believe in what they are doing. Real have been playing at their reserve stadium while the Santiago Bernabeu is renovated and will not be doing their usual open-top bus parade to the Cibeles fountain in the centre of Madrid because of current safety concerns.
Palace look like they are safe from the drop after Saturday's win over Brighton, but Filly has pretty much given up on having anything more than survival to celebrate. It is strange being a Palace fan, because I never expect too much from them - I am a realist,\" he explained. The only thing I ask is for us not to be relegated. I just don't feel that with our squad we have what it takes to consistently compete against the top teams or play in Europe.
Hi! Zenit and Lyon are here before the 5th round of the Champions League group stage match up. Both of the teams have everything to play for, as none of them has been saved their ticket for the next round yet. It will be an open fixture as well, as every of them wants a victory. Zenit is doing great this season in their league, and after the last round of the Russian Premier League, they are at the top of the table. However, in the Champions League they aren’t showing so well. Pick on both teams scoring and draw!! Nice game, friends ;)

Rangers have played one game fewer but now find themselves further behind than at any other stage this season. Hearts carved out some good chances themselves, but Fraser Forster denied Jamie Walker on multiple occasions to maintain his clean sheet, and substitute Marcel Langer was shown a late red card. Daniel Stendel's side remain one point behind Hamilton Academical at the foot of the table, and host the Lanarkshire club on Saturday.
We can see the visitors breaking the deadlock in this close clash, as Roma have found the net in each of their last 10 away games in Serie A against Verona. The visitors do have an impressive record in trips like this, which should lead them to another victory. Roma have won their last 19 Serie A games against newly-promoted sides: the longest ever such streak in the Italian top-flight. With Verona losing 1-0 in each of their home defeats this term, a 1-0 away win is our correct score pick here.
Portimonense U23 will host Sporting Braga U23 for this fixture of the league. No doubt, the visitors are more ambitious team in this season. Braga U23 are currently on the 6th place with 30 points. Also, Braga are undefeated in their last 5 matches. Perhaps, the visitors will try to make a positive result in this game. I think, this will not be an easy task. Also, we have Portimonense who's is not very good team in this campaign. They are currently on the 12th place with 19 points. Nevertheless, I think, the hosts have the potential to fighting to win. Hosts have a more offensive team. They have an effective attack. True, they have a vulnerable defense. In any case, the hosts will try to capitalize advantage on their pitch.
