Barcelona’s Champions League Future Hangs in the Balance Amid Bribery Charges

By Score More Barcelona faces the possibility of being banned from the Champions League after being charged with suspected bribery by a Spanish judge, Joaquin Aguirre.

La Liga: Barcelona Dominates Real Betis with a 5-0 Victory in Stellar Performance

By Score More Barcelona, FC Porto's upcoming opponent in the Champions League, hosted and secured a resounding 5-0 victory against Real Betis at the Montjuic Olympic Stadium.
