It was a week for the ages, and it also was a week that will insure a controversially pick to end the year #1. Barcelona whom have been ranked #1 for most of the year, will not finish the season at the top thanks to their UCL exit. However no one had a worst week than Jose Mourinho, who missed an opportunity to win the European Cup with three different clubs. Not to mention his most memorable moment as a coach, Inter’s advancement at the Nou Camp in 2010 was out done by former club Chelsea as they scored two goals with 10 men to advance. Bayern have reached the Champions League Final in their own stadium, and moved into the top spot. To wrap things up on Monday Man City enjoyed their biggest win in club history over United.
Just Missed: Montpellier, Schalke 04, Porto, Newcastle
