Los Matadores: Arsenal's Spanish Outside-Back Tandem

The outside back position, where Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellarin play for Arsenal, could be considered the black swan of soccer. It’s a position known to see lots of 1v1 action, where there’s a fine line between being a hero or an Internet GIF.

However, sometimes a duo comes along that changes not only how a team defends, but how they attack as well.

Left back Nacho Monreal and right back Hector Bellerin are two of the biggest reasons Arsenal have made their claim that they will be in the hunt for the Premier League title early this season.

Spanish And Polish Fans Brawled In Manchester Because That Makes Sense

Nothing like a good old-fashioned bout of hooliganism to ready oneself for a big Champions League match, at least, that's what, on first glance, it looked like Sevilla and Manchester City fans were doing Wednesday in a Manchester brawl prior to the Manchester City-Sevilla game.

Euro 2016 qualifiers are over besides playoffs and the real competition is fast approching. That prodded us to go and find out who the European Championships top scorers are, including some who could move up the list next summer.

Both Platini and Blatter have corruption charges hanging over their heads, hence the suspensions.

Another thing we learned: except for Gerard Pique.

Chicharito Brace Helps Bayer Leverkusen In Crazy UCL Game

Chicharito's tenure at Bayer Leverkusen seems to be going well so far. He added two goals to his season tally and Leverkusen walked away with a point against Roma in the Champions League, thanks largely to the Chicharito brace. Chicharito's two goals put Bayer up 2-0, but Roma stormed back to go up 4-2. Then it was Bayer's turn to come back, tying the game up 4-4, where it ended.

How Much Is Neymar's Net Worth? And How Much Is His Salary?

Neymar is on the fast track to become one of the richest athletes in the world. He's young, he's talented, he's marketable (which is a roundabout way of saying he's good-looking).
