Who will become the World Cups sharpest shooter?

One of the most talked about and exciting of these markets is always the race for the Golden Boot. With this in mind, we consider the form and prospects of three of the favourites for that title.

Ribery Rates Third In Ballon d'Or

Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery came third in the FIFA Ballon d’Or award rankings this campaign. Many reckon that he should have won the trophy after having helped the German club to 3 major trophies last season. His competitors – Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – did not achieve much success at the team level. Despite this status, Ribery has been out of the rotation policy of the club introduced by manager pep Guardiola.

LEICESTER READY AND WAITING

With 2 matches left in the Football League Championship, clubs in that league are trying to conclude the season on a high note and this is something that Leicester City certainly has managed to do as they have already been crowned as the champions.

Leicester City’s victory against Bolton Wanderers was enough for them to secure the Championship trophy after what has been a superb season for the team of Nigel Pearson.

Simeone guides Atletico through to final

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone was the hero as he guided his side into this season’s Champions League final following a sensational 3-1 second leg victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

YOUNG HELPS CONTAIN BAYERN

Manchester United winger Ashley Young has claimed that he is extremely happy that the team managed to contain the likes of Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben when they came up against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford.

United were coming into the match as the overwhelming favourites to get beaten quite heavily, as Bayern Munich have been extraordinary this season. Not only have they managed to seal the Bundesliga title with seven matches remaining, but they have also broken numerous records along the way.

Blues Book Last Four Spot

Chelsea were able to qualify for the semi-final of the Champions League following a 2-0 victory over PSG at Stamford Bridge last night.
