April is a time for shedding the winter coats, coming out of hibernation, and apparently scoring some sublime goals. We were treated to a full schedule of football to begin the month, with the first legs of both the Champions and Europa League quarterfinals taking place Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, respectively. There was an all-Spanish affair at the Camp Nou, as Barcelona hosted Atletico for what promised to be a scintillating affair. While Jose Mourinho and Laurent Blanc locked tactical horns for the matchup between Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea at the Parc des Princes. It was domestic league action as usual at the weekend, with Liverpool retaining their spot atop the Barclay’s Premier League, and Real Madrid cruising to victory despite the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo. Just five domestic matches to go in England, as the race for places is entering the home stretch, and it’s still anyone’s guess who will be crowned La Liga king. From Romelu Lukaku firing Everton to within a point of Arsenal for fourth to Jose Mari’s double to down Vancouver, check out the best golazos and skills of the week.
