Joe Hart saved City to go to Madrid all equal. C Ronaldo missed the game through injury

A Madrid vs Bayern Munich : 1-0
Simone's side proved to be a tough nut & Pep Guadiorla got to wait for the second leg

Leicester City is the new EPL Champion 2015-2016

The Foxes is now officially the EPL Champion with 2 matches remaining after Spurs choked up and could not better the former's result this weekend.
The Foxes held Man Utd to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford and waited anxiously for Sours' Tuesday match at Stamford Bridge. Their joy in winning their first championship in more than 120 years is deserved! Spurs weer 2-0 up at half time only to see the Blues denying them at the end...... 2-2 being the final score!!

It is a fairy tale come true for Claudio Ranieri's modest side. Deserved.

Leicester's incredible Premier League triumph has been built around £400,000 forward Riyad Mahrez and diminutive midfielder N'Golo Kante - both relative unknowns until this season - and a striker in Jamie Vardy who was still playing non-league football four years ago.
But this squad of freebies, basement buys and unknown imports have shocked the football world.
Along the way they won the hearts of neutral fans, became household names and fully fledged international stars.
These are the stories of the 14 key players from a team that cost less than £30m to assemble, but managed to topple the Premier League's elite.
