- U19 to take on Barca
Dortmund's U19 will play against Barcelona on Wednesday in the UEFA Youth League. They'll try to beat Barca's U19 and advance to the quarterfinals and they will have Felix Passlack to help them.

- An incredible Champions League night
So I missed last night's CL-games.....just my luck I guess.
14 goals! 14!

Bayer Leverkusen 2-4 Atletico Madrid
Manchester City 5-3 Monaco
I can't see Leverkusen bouncing back from a 2-4 at home, especially against an Atletico team that is great at home. City vs. Monaco ended up being an 8-goal thriller where Pep's guys had to rally to come back from a 1-2 at halftime. City should be through to the next round but they have been so inconsistent this season that Monaco might be able to turn things around at home.
Today we'll see Porto take on Juventus and Sevilla against Leicester.
