Is Ronaldinho Partying His Way Out of a Job?
Unfortunately, she also stole his spot in the Real Madrid lineup. Robinho was dropped for last weekend's match against Espanyol. Likewise, Barca removed Ronaldinho from the lineup for their match against Villareal after he proved unfit to play last Friday. Real and Barca both lost, and Ronnie remains unable to shake the perception that he would rather party than play for his club.
Barca better hope Ronaldinho stayed out of the clubs in advance of today's big Champions League match against blue-hot Rangers, which has suddenly become the biggest match in this round of the group stage. Elsewhere this week, Liverpool finds itself in a must-win situation in Turkey against Be?ikta?, defending European champs AC Milan face Ukrainian side Shakhtar without Dida, Chelsea hopes some people will show up for their match against German club Schalke 04, and Freddy Adu might see some playing time for Benfica when they face Celtic in Portugal.
Our pals at The Offside have a complete run down of this week's Champions League action.
