What a wild ride the 2017 MLS regular season was. The league, for all its various shortcomings and absurdities, is incredibly exciting and ever-growing in quality. However, for all of its maturation and development, there’s still a brilliant charm to MLS that’s long since left Europe’s biggest leagues and the likes of the NFL, NBA and MLB.
It’s just not going well for Borussia Dortmund at the moment. BVB look almost certainties for an early Champions League exit at the hands of Tottenham and Real Madrid, and the Bundesliga gap to Bayern Munich stands at six points following a 3-1 Der Klassiker defeat on November 4.
If you come at Barcelona in the UEFA Women’s Champions League, you best not miss. On Wednesday night, Lithuanian side Gintra Universitetas attempted to come at Barcelona in the Round of 16 and they missed. Horrendously.
Barcelona were already leading 3-0 when the home team hilariously failed to convert a 3-on-0, and the Catalan side would go on to win 6-0 in the first leg. The return leg, scheduled for November 15 in Barcelona, is now something of a formality.
