Real Madrid 1-0 Bayern Munich
Benzema opened up scoring for Real, who take their 1-0 lead to Germany next week in their attempt to knock out the defending Champions League winners.  While they are up a goal, it could have been more as they did miss a few good chances.

Utd Lack Direction, Penetration and Shape

Bleacher Report does a pretty good job breaking down what a complete failure Moyes and United were during their game against Everton, which is also very indicative of his failure all season that lead to his firing.

The news that everyone knew was coming is finally official..
Manchester United have fired David Moyes, effective immediately, and will have Ryan Giggs serve as interim manager for the last 3 games of the season.
Moyes was a complete disaster after taking over from Sir Alex.  It’s tough to feel bad for Moyes since he really was such a mess and really set out no vision or direction for United, but he didn’t exactly inherit the best situation either.  If anything though, I’ll be sad to see him go just for comedy sake, as it was always hilarious when his team instructions were to just cross the ball into the box as much as possible, or when his main mid-game tactical change was to simply switch wingers.

Marseille have reached a tentative agreement to appoint Marcelo Bielsa as their next manager.
It’s a great move for Bielsa, who has proved himself time and time again to be a great manager with inventive tactics.  He might not stay in anyone job for too long, but he always seems to improve whatever team he touches.
