DEC 16: Top Tips December 16, 2014 Leave a comment In England on Tuesday there are two Capital One Cup quarter-finals and while I’m currently favouring Chelsea at Derby and Southampton at Sheffield Utd I want to see team news before making a final decision. There are six FA Cup replays and of those Luton at home to Bury, Rochdale at home to Aldershot and Yeovil at home to Accrington could be the best bets. In the Bundesliga Bayern Munich at home to Freiburg is one of four games and in the Spanish Cup there are four second-leg ties including Barcelona v Huesca and Valencia v Rayo Vallecano. Bayern have conceded just three Bundesliga goals all season and have kept clean sheets in seven of their last eight in all competitions which suggests the leaders to win to nil – but I can’t recommend that again so I’ll be on them on the handicaps.

Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa was in action as his Russian team CSKA Moscow crashed out of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night in Germany. Thomas Muller's first-half penalty and late goals from Sebastian Rode and Mario Gotze sealed a routine 3-0 victory for Bayern, while defeat for CSKA means they cannot even enjoy the consolation of Europa League football in the new year. The Bundesliga champions came into Wednesday's clash at the Allianz Arena already confirmed as pool winners, while the picture was slightly more complicated for CSKA. Leonid Slutsky's men needed a win in Munich and had to hope the game between Roma and Manchester City in Italy ended in anything other than victory for the home side. In the end, both results went against CSKA - City claiming second spot with a 2-0 win in Rome while they finished bottom of the group with five points. The most pleasing aspect of a straightforward dead-rubber win for Bayern boss Pep Guardiola is sure to be the long-awaited return to his starting X ...

Alonso: Hard for a German to beat Messi & Ronaldo to Ballon d'Or 19-Nov-2014 The midfielder feels a German player has a chance if the award is decided on team success, but the Madrid and Barca stars have it wrapped up based on individual displays Bayern Munich star Xabi Alonso believes that it would be tough for a German player to beat Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi to the Ballon d'Or. The veteran Spaniard made a surprise summer move to the Allianz Arena from Real Madrid, where he played alongside Ronaldo and enjoyed many battles with Messi's Barcelona. A number of Bayern's contingent of German World Cup winners are nominated for the prestigious award, including the likes of Philipp Lahm, Thomas Muller and Manuel Neuer, but Alonso feels the Liga pairing are still ahead of the competition in terms of individual performances. He told Sport Bild: "It's a very general question: is the award about individual, personal performances? "In this case, it would be tough against Messi and Ronaldo. Or is it about t ...

Liverpool FC transfer gossip: Reds face Marco Reus battle, January move for Ezequiel Lavezzi, Divock Origi to stay at Lille, Victor Valdes not yet done A round-up of the Reds transfer rumours from around the web Liverpool FC face a battle to sign reported target Marco Reus, according to the Daily Star, with Bayern Munich readying a bid for the Borussia Dortmund star. The Reds, Arsenal and Manchester United are apparently among a host of European clubs monitoring the 25-year-old's situation. Dortmund are desperate to secure Reus to a new contract, due to a £28m buyout clause, inserted into his current deal, which becomes active next summer. But Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admits the Bundesliga champions are interested in bringing him to the Allianz Arena. Meanwhile, the Express believe Brendan Rodgers will respond to the news Edinson Cavani is not for sale by moving for his PSG team-mate Ezequiel Lavezzi in January. The Argentina international was tracked by Rodgers over the summer, and accordin ...

Meanwhile in Spain, Cristiano Ronaldo struck four times as Real Madrid maintained their remarkable resurgence with a 5-1 victory over Elche at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday evening. Ronaldo's night had hardly begun as he would have wished - he was at fault for the 15th-minute penalty that gave Elche a shock lead through Edu Albacar. Madrid and Ronaldo in particular - rallied, with three quick goals of their own through Gareth Bale and a double from the FIFA Ballon d'Or w ...

FULL TIME : Bayern Munich 1 - 0 Manchester City The England goalkeeper was finally beaten late on having kept out Pep Guardiola's side for the majority of the 90 minutes as City suffered defeat in their group stage opener. Jerome Boateng scored a dramatic late winner as Bayern Munich kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City. City goalkeeper Joe Hart frustrated the Bundesliga champions for long periods of the Group E opener at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, as Bayern looked set to start the group stages with a draw. Thomas Muller ought to have put the Bavarian giants in front inside a minute when he rounded Hart but could only fire wide when he finally got his shot away. Manuel Pellegrini could only watch on from the stands as he served a touchline ban, with his assistant Ruben Cousillas taking charge on the sidelines, and he must have had his head in his hands as former City defender Boateng's half-volley deflected past Hart at the death. "Bayern edge out the vic ...
Bayern Munich 1-0 Manchester City - Martin Samuel's match report from the Allianz Arena
MUNICH, Germany, Sept 17, 2014 (AFP) - A superb strike by Jerome Boateng with a minute remaining earned Bayern Munich a dramatic 1-0 victory against Manchester City in their opening Champions League game of the season on Wednesday. An inspired performance by City goalkeeper Joe Hart looked to have secured his team a point in the meeting of the English and German champions at Munich's Allianz Arena. But former City defender Boateng hammered a volley into the net in the dying seconds, although his venomous strike appeared to take a deflection off Bayern's Mario Goetze on its way in. Hart had pulled off a string of fine saves from Thomas Mueller, David Alaba, Goetze and Boateng but the England international was finally beaten as Bayern earned a deserved win in their opening Group E fixture. Manchester City had come back from two goals down to beat Bayern 3-2 at the same venue in last season's group stages and they started with Edin Dzeko, who has yet to score this season, leading the attack instead of Sergio ...
Pep Guardiola says Manchester United cannot afford to buy Bayern Munich's star players and believes their decline should serve as a lesson to other clubs in Europe. United have been a perennial giant in English and European football under Sir Alex Ferguson, but the Scot's retirement at the end of the 2012-13 season has seen them go downhill rapidly. Louis van Gaal was rumoured to be chasing three Bayern Munich players as he looked to add to bolster his squad, with Arjen Robben, Thomas Muller and Bastian Schweinsteiger all linked. Muller recently hinted that he turned down "astronomical" money to join United and Guardiola has added that the 13-time Premier League champions couldn't afford to lure his players away from the Allianz Arena. "[United] didn't have enough money," he told reporters. "I saw they spent a lot of money. It’s good for my friend Louis. It’s part of the game. "All of the clubs in the world want the players of another club. It depends on the player. If the player wants to play he will ...
Munich (Germany): For the fifth time in four years, European giants Bayern Munich and Manchester City will play each other in the Champions League group stages. The opening game in Group E on Wednesday sees the German and English champions meet in Munich's Allianz Arena, where City came back from two goals down to win 3-2 in their final group game last December.

Didier Drogba has returned to training with Chelsea ahead of a possible first European outing with the club since scoring the winning goal in the 2012 Champions League final. Drogba's first spell with the Blues ended with him scoring the decisive penalty which defeated Bayern Munich in the final at the Allianz Arena. He has now given manager Jose Mourinho a big boost by returning from injury sooner than expected, showing no ill effects as he trained with the Chelsea squad at their Cobham base on Tuesday. Drogba rejoined Chelsea this summer after a spell at Galatasaray but missed Saturday's win over Swansea because of an ankle injury which was expected to keep him out of the Group G match against Schalke on Wednesday. Mourinho is likely to start with in-form Diego Costa up front at Stamford Bridge but Drogba may well gain a place on the bench. Watch Chelsea play Schalke live on Sky Sports 1 from 7.30pm on Wednesday.

Toni Kroos believes there is a completely different mentality at Real Madrid than the one he was used to at Bayern Munich. The Germany international joined the Santiago Bernabeu side in a deal believed to be worth €25 million and says he is already adapting to his surroundings in Spain - despite discovering a very different approach to the one he became used to at the Allianz Arena. "The mentality here at Madrid is different than at Bayern," Kroos was quoted as saying by Sport Bild. "When training started at 10:30 at Bayern, everybody would be ready to go at 10:30. Things are a bit different here. I got used to it pretty quickly, though. Everything is a bit more relaxed and loose. "I briefly considered using a translator at Madrid, but I didn't like the idea of having someone around me all the time. I can get by using English. And Sami Khedira helped me out with some minor things in the beginning. He was really helpful for me." Kroos then went on to make it clear that he doesn't feel any extra pressure ...
