Sport: Barcelona & Brazil striker Neymar to stand trial for alleged fraud and corruption

Neymar and his parents are to stand trial over alleged fraud and corruption.

In addition the Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, and his predecessor Sandro Rosell will go on trial for alleged fraud and corruption over Neymar’s transfer from Santos in 2013.

The two clubs were also ordered to stand trial. All have denied wrongdoing.

Spanish prosecutors have recommended Neymar be handed a two-year jail sentence and fined €10m. Sentences of two years or less are usually suspended for first-time offenders in Spain.

Sport: Lightning did not strike twice - Barcelona out Champions League

Miracles do happen. But not every six weeks.

And not against this Juventus; not with Giorgio Chellini and Leonardo Bonucci, born to block, at the heart of a defence.

Barcelona are out of the Champions League, with Juventus going through into the semi-finals, and now the recriminations and rebuilding will begin in Catalonia.

They could not over-turn a daunting first-leg deficit, as they did in the previous round against Paris Saint-Germain just a month and a half ago, although there were chances.

Lionel Messi, amazingly, was wasteful.

Sport: Barcelona's coach believes team can pull off another miracle against Juventus

Luis Enrique has told Barcelona fans not to leave the Nou Camp early during their Champions League quarter-final tie against Juventus... because there may be a repeat of the miracle comeback against PSG.

Trailing 3-0 after a humbling defeat in Turin, Barcelona face a monumental task in their Champions League quarter-final second leg on Wednesday. But Lionel Messi and Co have already proved themselves capable of doing the impossible this season.

Barcelona try to claw back from 4-0 Champion's League loss

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has faith that his side can claw back a massive 4-0 aggregate deficit in their Champions League tie with Paris St-Germain.

The Catalan giants capitulated in the first leg in Paris after goals from Julian Draxler, Edinson Cavani and a brace from Angel di Maria.

Barca host the French champions on Wednesday in the last 16 second leg – but since the debacle, they have won their last two games 6-1 and 5-0.

But if they do manage to achieve it, they will be the first team in Champions League history to come from four goals down and go through.
