  • Riyad Mahrez named "African Footballer of the Year"

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed out on his second win of the yearly award when he came up short with 313 votes against Mahrez's 361 votes. Aubameyang might have had the better year overall but Mahrez had the advantage of winning the Premier League title with his club Leicester City. It was a close call but PEA accepted the result and congratulated Mahrez on his win.

  • Tomorrow is matchday!

We'll play PSV Eindhoven tomorrow and you can watch the game on the BVB site. The club sits currently at third place in the Erendivisie behind Ajax Amsterdam and Feyenoord Rotterdam. They have a core of young talented players that will be interesting to see. Their defense is especially tough to crack with only 8 goals conceded in 17 games.

Daily Buzz: Did Mahrez deserve to win against Auba? Mahrez was phenomenal last season but he struggled a bit (like the entire Leicester team) this season while Auba has been consistently great but has no title to show for it.
