ESPN FC's Paul Mariner sifts through the Champions League draw and determines who has the best path to the knockout stage and who may struggle.
With negotiations reportedly ongoing to play the UEFA Champions League final in New York, the FC crew weigh the pros and cons of playing in the U.S.
Manchester City's Pep Guardiola insists his side aren't thinking about a Champions League final this season and that they remain focused on the Premier League.
The FC panel are cautiously optimistic of Manchester United's chances of advancing from Group H, indicating Jose Mourinho must fix their current problems fast.

The Champions League group stage begins with 31 teams attempting to deny Real Madrid a fourth straight triumph. All of the main contenders have questions to answer, so we asked Michael Cox to look at one key issue for each of the likely challengers.

The major surprise from the European Cup holders' summer was not that Real Madrid sold Cristiano Ronaldo, but that they did not really replace him. Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard and Neymar seemed the obvious choices, but instead Madrid are taking the...

Liverpool pass biggest test yet; Ronaldo gets off the mark in Italy

Another test passed for Liverpool, this time away to Tottenham Hotspur, but you can see where Jurgen Klopp is coming from when he complained that the 2-1 victory did not match the performance, which was top-notch. Indeed, when you dominate as comprehensively as Liverpool did, conceding a goal in injury time and suffering through the final few seconds is not where you want to be.

That said, it shouldn't be doom and gloom, either. Three points is three points, and when they are accompanied by...

Cristiano Ronaldo nets first Juventus goals; Douglas Costa disgraces himself

Cristiano Ronaldo netted his 1st career Serie A goal 320 minutes into his Juventus career and added another later in Juventus' win over Sassuolo.
Douglas Costa was sent off in the final minutes of Juventus' win over Sassualo after he appeared to spit in face of Federico Di Francesco.
Cristiano scored his first goal with Juventus in the 50th minute and added a second goal 15 minutes later as Juventus defeated Sassuolo 2-1.

Juventus may not be playing with any beauty, but they continue winning, with their latest triumph a 2-1 defeat of Sassuolo, who were second in Serie A ahead of the match.

It was clear from the first half that Juventus only really cared about delivering a pressure-relieving goal to Cristiano Ronaldo, and although it took 50 minutes, he was in the right place at the right time to open the scoring with a close-range finish.

A brilliant counterattack led to Juventus' and Ronaldo's second before the...

Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus are not worried about his lack of goals so far

Cristiano Ronaldo strikes a pose in "relaxation mode" on a day off during the international fortnight. Laid back on some steps leading up to a Jacuzzi on the deck of some luxury boat cutting through the waters of the Cote d'Azur, the first impression on seeing his Instagram post is that he has this down to a fine art. You might think Ronaldo is chilling under the Mediterranean sun, but in actual fact, he is working.

"Vitamin D," read the caption under the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's photo:...

Transfer Talk: Juventus plot huge double swoop for Marcelo and Paul Pogba

ESPN FC's Craig Burley would like to see Paul Pogba talking more with his play than with the media as his soap opera with Jose Mourinho continues.

The transfer window for all of Europe's big five leagues is now closed, but that doesn't stop Transfer Talk from rummaging through the remains of the summer window to scrounge up the earliest bit of gossip about who will be moving where come January.

Juventus plot Marcelo-Pogba double swoop
