Foxes Football Frenzy – Leicester move to the quarters


In global football the world’s eyes are turned to the Champions League draw. Although Leicester’s Premier League dream seems to be turning into a nightmare, they are still within a chance of becoming European champions. The Foxes have drawn Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals, which promises to be a tough test. The undoubted highlight of the draw though is the mouth-watering clash between European giants Bayern Munich and the holders Real Madrid

As Barcelona and Real Madrid avoid each other in the quarters, fans are still crossing their fingers for another possible Ronaldo Vs Messi showdown in the final. After Ronaldo’s recent Ballon d’or victory, both players have broken golden ball history, but Messi still leads with 5 to Ronaldo’s 4. We decided to solve the debate once and for all. We took the question to pupils at Wickersley School and Sports College… who is the best? Ronaldo or Messi?

We’ve gathered some information on people’s opinions on both of these amazing football players. The results say that  70% of people preferred Ronaldo and only 30% of people preferred Messi. That means more people like Ronaldo than Messi, which means that Ronaldo is the world’s greatest footballer… well in our opinion.

The team’s kick-off tonight at 19:45, it has the makings of a Championship classic as Wednesday trail to Reading in the league. Wednesday are 6th with 62 points and Reading edge closer to Premier League glory in 5th place with 64 points. Tonight proves a perfect opportunity for Wednesday to overtake Reading and secure their place in the top 6. For the second season in a row Sheffield Wednesday have proven they have an abundance of quality in their ranks, but recently the Owls have failed to win in their last four matches.
