1) James is destined for greatness
I have already profiled this boy as a player to watch in this season’s tournament before matchday 1 but his performance and goal last night put to bed any lingering doubt that he is a truly special player. He possesses so many qualities that are often so rare in such a young player – his eye for a pass, ability to draw opposing players in to him, finding space in congested areas, knowing exactly when to dribble or when to move on possession, composure under intense pressure – these are to name just a few of his qualities. In my opinion the only other player of a similar age group who can match him is Neymar of Santos. Of all the players aged 21 and below currently playing in Europe, none of them are playing at the capacity James is.

And very late on in the game, Fernando was sent off for a second yellow. Seen as the stadium was in a party mood, he laughed and danced off the pitch. Here is the video of the incident:

Congratulations to the 2012 Bundesliga champions, Borussia Dortmund. Though the Germans may have crowned their champions, most European leagues are still tightly contested. With most leagues winding down to their final weeks of action, I take a look at each title race and offer my speculation.
