gareth baleReal Madrid win their 10th Champions League Trophy last night after a very tight match that could have gone either way.

Diego Costa was selected to start the match, but he was not fully fit has he suffered a hamstring problem just 1 week prior to this match against Barcelona, in which they won the La Liga Trophy.

It was always a risk to play him in this big match when he was not fully fit, and he was substituted off moments into the game, as he could not continue due to his hamstring problem.

Diego Godin managed to loop over the keeper in the 36th minute to score, as Cassilas made an poor decison to come off his line. Cassilas tried to move back to clear it off, but he failed and the ball had already crossed the line.

UEFA Champions League Semi-Final Draw and the UEFA Europa League Semi-Final Draw was held on 12.04.2013 in Nyon.

My last preview and prediction was actually right, I predicted the correct Champions League draws.

I think this draw is great. It is really hard to predict who will go to the finals. I just hope it won’t end up being an El Classico of Barcelona v Real Madrid in the finals.

Juventus v Bayern Munich Football Match – 10.04.2013 – UEFA Champions League Match Preview, Prediction, Squad Info

Juventus v Bayern Munich Football Match will be played on 10.04.2013 in the Juventus Stadium (Torino)for a UEFA Champions League match. Carlos Velasco‎ will be the referee for this match.

Juventus hasn’t lost a match in all of their Champions League matches except against Bayern Munich in the first leg playing away. The score was 2-0. They will need to score goals if they were to go through and for them playing at home, I think they will score but to score more than 2 goals and keep a clean sheet will be tough for them.

Juventus key players are A. Pirlo, M. Vučinić, S. Giovinco, F. Quagliarella and A. Matri.

Barcelona will be hosting this match against PSG for the 2nd leg. In the first leg, it was a really close match between the two sides. PSG managed to level the score in the closing minutes. Barcelona will be the favorites to win this match, as they are playing at home and they are usually unbeaten in their home matches. Messi is said to be doubtful for this match, as their is a slight injury concern.

Galatasaray v Real Madrid Football Match will be played on 09.04.2013 in the Türk Telekom Arena, Istanbul for a second leg UEFA Champions League match.

Galatasaray

Galatasaray has been poor at the start of the Champions League group stages but managed to hang on and qualify to the quarter-finals. In their first leg match against Real Madrid, I felt they didn’t play that well, the final result was 3-0 to Real Madrid.

Galatasaray’s key players are: B. Yılmaz, W. Sneijder and D. Drogba. Drogba will face his former manager Jose Mourinho again in this match.

These are the players to watch out for in this match.
