LONDON (AP) - Francois Colin, De Standaard, Belgium

“Things did not look too good for Real Madrid in the Champions League but they managed to escape. They needed three goals, so Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat trick.”


Marco Monteverde, News Corp. Australia

“Most people were tipping Barcelona to do the Champions League-La Liga double, but someone forgot to tell Atletico Madrid. They not only ended Barca’s Champions League defense but they also drew level with the Catalan giants in what has become a thrilling battle for Spanish domestic glory.”


Umaid Wasim, Dawn Newspaper, Pakistan

“Having stunned them in the Champions League in midweek, Atletico Madrid now have both their hands around Barcelona’s necks in La Liga. An embodiment of hard work and determination, Diego Simeone’s team just never stops believing.”


Tom Timmemann, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, United States

“Cristiano Ronaldo came through twice, with a Champions League hat trick and a domestic goal to round out the week. With Paris Saint-Germain out of Europe, (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic and his teammates can run up big results on the rest of France.”


Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

“Bravo (Real) Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat trick in the Champions League was the best individual display, while Atletico Madrid’s win over Barcelona was the best team performance.”


Manos Staramopoulos, Dimocratia, Greece

“A team itself was Sergio Aguero. The Argentina striker scored three goals and Manchester City forced another heavy defeat upon Chelsea.”


Jonathan Johnson, beIN Sports USA, France

“It was an unforgettable week for Liverpool. Juergen Klopp’s men pulled off a thrilling comeback to knock the German tactician’s former side, Borussia Dortmund, out of the Europa League 5-4 on aggregate with a memorable 4-3 win at Anfield.”
