Bayern bask after crushing Roma

Bayern Munich produced a stunning display on Tuesday evening by brushing Roma aside with a 7-1 victory.

Pep Guardiola’s side cruised to their third win in Group E and were 5-0 up by half time following Arjen Robben’s double, along with goals from Mario Gotze, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller.

Franck Ribery and Xherdan Shaqiri netted late on to complete the rout, while Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi admits the loss is “a dagger into the heart” of the Roma supporters.

Royal rumble in Roma-Juve title clash

A dramatic Serie A title clash between reigning champions Juventus and challengers Roma almost descended into farce on Sunday evening, with a host of controversial decisions dominating post-match conjecture.

Referee Gianluca Rocchi awarded three penalties in the contest, as well as sending off Alvaro Morata and Konstantinos Manolas, though the decisions were very controversial, with both of the offences which resulted in penalties for Juve appearing to have happened outside the box.

Roma coach Rudi Garcia even found himself sent to the stands by Rocchi, before centre-back Leonardo Bonucci became the unlikeliest of heroes for the Old Lady by blasting an audacious volley into the bottom corner to seal a 3-2 win.

Giallorossi skipper Francesco Totti was furious with the refereeing afterwards: "We came here to play and the performance was good, but what happened [with the referee] conditioned the game.

"It's terrible to have to say it but these things that affect the game have been happening for years. Juventus certainly didn't beat us. There were three incidents that changed a game that we wanted to win. There's a lot of anger but we must lift our heads after a game like this.

"I've always said it: they should play in their own league. They always win by hook or by crook. We train to win but then these things happen. There's not even a need to look at the replays. We already saw everything on the field."

Golden Oldie: Totti shines again on the big stage for Roma

Francesco Totti showed he can still cut it at the highest level after his sublime chipped finish earned Roma a 1-1 draw against Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

The 38-year-old’s well-taken effort has kept Rudi Garcia’s side in the driving seat to progress to the knockout stages as they sit two points behind Bayern Munich but three ahead of City.

Gervinho beats Bolt by a neck

Roma star Gervinho appears to fancy himself as a sprinter.

The former Arsenal man scored twice in midweek as Roma fought hard to beat Napoli 3-2 in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg.

And afterwards, Gervinho joked that, with the ball at his feet, he would give 100 and 200-metre world record holder Usain Bolt a run for his money.

"I would beat him [Bolt] with the ball at my feet," he said. "Without the ball, he would be quicker."

Gervinho failed to establish himself in the Premier League with Arsenal, but has been in fine form since moving to Italy, scoring five goals in Serie A.
