LONDON (AP) - ___

Sam Tighe, Bleacher Report, United States

“It all looked a little sketchy for Bayern Munich at one stage: 1-0 down to Wolfsburg and unable to work the ball out under a ferocious high-press. But the Wolves tired and Pep’s men took over.”


Mark Rodden, Eurosport, France

“This was a week for the underdog. Wigan once again proved that the romance of the FA Cup is alive and well and that lightning can strike twice after all. Valladolid got just its fifth win of the season by derailing Barcelona’s title hopes.”


Marco Monteverde, News Corp. Australia

“With two goals and an assist, (Thomas) Mueller was a standout in Bayern Munich’s 6-1 thrashing of Wolfsburg.”


Tom Timmermann, St, Louis Post-Dispatch, United States

“Bayern Munich has scored 72 goals this season and allowed 11. Every week they seem to be scoring six goals.”


Leonardo Bertozzi, ESPN Brazil

“In the week that he isolated himself as the highest goalscorer of the Portuguese national team, Cristiano Ronaldo helped Real Madrid to yet another win. A goal and assist in the 3-0 over Levante shows he is even hungrier having returned after suspension.”


Richard Jolly, ESPN, England

“Wigan captain Emmerson Boyce made perhaps the block of the season, an unbelievable challenge to stop Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko from scoring an equalizer. No wonder his manager Uwe Rosler called him a match-winner.”


James Porteous, South China Morning Post

“Bayern continued to hammer all-comers in the Bundesliga, Real capitalized on Barca’s latest slip at Valladolid and Chelsea took advantage of their rivals not playing in the league to stretch their lead at the top of the Prem.”


Paolo Condo, Gazzetta dello Sport, Italy

“I think that what Bayern in Bundesliga and Juventus in Serie A are doing is really incredible. Superiority is a nice thing, dominance is better.”


Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina

“Paris Saint-Germain kept eight points clear of Monaco. The combination Ibra-Lavezzi is unstoppable for most defenses in Europe.”
