It’s Thursday! I’m pinch hitting for Caitlin Buckley today, so let’s quickly get into the news of the day:
Bayern Munich started off strong, but Cristiano Ronaldo was the difference for Real Madrid in the 2-1 victory at Allianz Arena.
Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel lashes out over having to play AS Monaco a day after Dortmund’s bus was the target of an explosion that injured defender Marc Bartra. It’s clear that the team just wasn’t fully there in a 3-2 Monaco road victory.
Atletico Madrid holds off Leicester City at home, 1-0.
Didier Drogba - the former Chelsea FC legend and Montreal Impact player - signs with Phoenix Rising of the USL. The deal includes ownership stake, and his hope is to spur the club to winning one of the MLS expansion bids.
Spoiler alert: we already knew that, Howie.
I indicate some venues I think should be hosting the 2026 World Cup if it’s here in the United States, Canada and Mexico. What venues would you like to see?
If D.C. United can pull off these numbers for United Night Out, that would be incredible. Hope MLS will allow this to happen.
That’s it, everyone. Hit those comments and start the day off right!
