AS Roma have gone backwards but all is not lost for Eusebio Di Francesco

A sobering and honest assessment of Roma's misadventures at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night made defeat no less painful for the away support. But it was hard not to find a kernel of truth in the words Monchi uttered while passing through the mixed zone shortly after full-time.

"The best Roma last season would probably have lost tonight as well," he observed, and it's hard to disagree.

Real Madrid have won the Champions League in four of the past five years and for all the curiosity surrounding...

Gonzalo Higuain made it two in two games with a second-half winner vs. F91 Dudelange.

AC Milan failed to impress but secured three important points as Gonzalo Higuain scored the only goal of the game away at Luxembourg's F91 Dudelange in the Europa League on Thursday night. The Rossoneri were lacklustre for the most part, but they will be pleased to start their European run with a win.

AC Milan's Gonzalo Higuain earns 7/10 after bailing team out against Cagliari

Gonzalo Higuain's first goal for Milan helped the Rossoneri pull level at Cagliari and salvage a draw from their trip to Sardinia.

AC Milan disappointed on Sunday night, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Cagliari after making a poor start to the game. The Rossoneri saw Gonzalo Higuain score his first goal for the club to salvage a point, but it was undoubtedly a frustrating night for Gennaro Gattuso.

Milan settled after a lacklustre opening 20 minutes and began to dictate the game by dominating possession. In turn, they reacted well to the setback and looked in control for the most part, while it would be have been...

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...

Roma booed off as defence struggles in draw vs. bottom side Chievo

Roma scored two first-half goals from Stephan El Shaarawy and Bryan Cristante, but Chievo battled back with two second-half goals to earn a 2-2 draw.

Roma were rightly booed off after they chucked away a two-goal lead at home to Serie A's bottom side, allowing a lively Chievo to snatch a point in a 2-2 draw when they should have been dead and buried. First-half strikes from Stephan El Shaarawy and Bryan Cristante -- his first for the club -- put the hosts in a comfortable position, but they switched off after a drink break 30 minutes in on a hot day at the Stadio Olimpico, and, in the end, they had goalkeeper Robin Olsen to thank for a depressing...

Inter Milan unveil 'marble' kit inspired by Milanese culture

Inter Milan have unveiled their new third kit for the 2018-19 season -- a handsome strip that pays homage to local Milanese culture and history.

The off-white shirt features a swirled motif inspired by the marble floors of the Duomo di Milano, the famous Gothic cathedral situated in the heart of the city that took six centuries to complete.

Inter introduced the jersey by having similarly rock solid defender Milan Skriniar "sculpt" it from a block of marble.

The Nerrazzurri are due to wear their...
