– Haiti: Imperial violets! The Violette Athletic Club has qualified for the quarter-finals of the Concacaf Champions League, a first for the Haitian team in the new version of the North American competition!

  • Benfica (POR) – Inter Milan (ITA)

Real, City and the others… The point on the favorites of the competition.

A boulevard for the Italians? A first since 2006, three Italian clubs are in the quarters. Their table seems open and we could attend a half 100% Italian!

– Nice: honor for French football? The last French representative in the European Cup, OGC Nice will play the quarter-finals of the Europa League Conference against FC Basel.

World Cup 2030: Morocco candidate. Morocco joins the candidacy of Spain and Portugal for the organization of the 2030 World Cup which will mark the centenary of the most popular sports competition.

Liga: a Clasico at a discount? FC Barcelona receives Real Madrid on Sunday (8 p.m. GMT). A poster less expected than usual, while Barça is affected by an arbitration scandal.
