Real Madrid looking to snatch Can from Juventus' grasp

Real Madrid looking to snatch Can from Juventus' grasp

The Brazilian would be equally unconcerned if next Friday's draw in Nyon handed them a date with either of Spain's top clubs - Real Madrid or Barcelona.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was determined to leave a final mark on English football prior to his farewell at the end of the season, but a red card 38 seconds after coming on as a halftime substitute was not what he envisaged.

We're halfway through the Champions League second round and thoughts are already turning to the quarter finals and who will play who. Of course, in the Premier League it's hard to win every game, but I think, step-by-step, we've improved.

A three-time Champions League victor with Real Madrid, Casillas' love affair with the competition began in November 1997 when, at the age of 16, he was taken out of school to be in Real Madrid's squad for a Champions League group game at Rosenborg. We're now in third and we play the next game against Manchester United, second against third, so it's an important game. "They are a really strong team, everyone knows that".

It's heady company for Milner to keep, but he could be up against any of them in the next round as the Reds await their quarter-final fate.

"How all of us - players, staff and supporters - approach tonight will tell me more about where we are in our development that any Premier League game against a Manchester City, United, Spurs and so on".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has refuted claims that Liverpool will have an advantage over Manchester United ahead of their crunch Premier League fixture this Saturday. Emre Can said after Tuesday's 0-0 draw with Porto at Anfield: 'I prefer to not play an English team, but I don't care who'.

As they limp out, Real's dream of becoming the first team in more than 40 years to win three successive European Cups remains alive.

However, that was one of few moments that got the home fans off their feet as Liverpool settled on their substantial lead.

That said, Gerrard won't have forgotten Liverpool's 4-3 win over the Citizens in January.
