An incredible night for all of Red Star, as they manage to beat the reigning champion, Real Madrid on home court of the Pionir Hall. The Belgrade volcano was sure to give the hosts an upper hand, while Quincey Miller, Maik Zirbes and the team’s youngest members have done the unthinkable. Crvena zvezda’s victory came as a well deserved reward after a strong group effort, that managed to neutralise even players such as Sergio Rodríguez and Gustavo Ayon.

Today marks thirteen years since Andrés Iniesta has debuted for Barcelona’s first team. Now, a club legend, Iniesta has started his road to stardom at only 18 against Bruges, on a cold Tuesday night. It is said that Van Gaal had only told him to: “Get out there and play”. The rest, as you know, is already history.
