On The Continent: Pressure on Andrea Pirlo, young Champions League royalty, and the shifting powers at Benfica

by Football Ramble Presents

With another round of Champions League action in the books, join Dotun, Andy and David Cartlidge as they pore over the biggest stories from another chaotic week of European football!

While Barcelona won the battle on the pitch against Juventus this week, managerial challenges still loom for both Andrea Pirlo and Ronald Koeman. We also reserve plenty of praise for two young stars who lit up the midweek fixtures as Marcus Thuram and João Félix both scored twice, before breaking down another tumultuous week for Jorge Jesus and Benfica – even Bernando Silva’s got involved!
