Suárez in Champions Matchday

Champions Matchday interviews Luis Suárez, Jackson Martínez, Antoine Griezmann and Toni Kroos as they look forward to their upcoming quarter-final ties.

The sight of Luis Suárez sliding on his knees towards jubilant FC Barcelona fans is fast becoming a familiar one. In the latest issue, the Blaugrana No9 talks Champions Matchday – official magazine of the UEFA Champions League – through his journey from playing barefoot on the streets of Montevideo to Camp Nou, where he leads one of Europe's most fearsome attacks.

Elsewhere in the last eight, Real Madrid CF and Club Atlético de Madrid lock horns for the second successive campaign after last season's final, but with several newcomers to the rivalry. We speak to two of them: midfielder Toni Kroos discusses his relationship with Blancos coach Carlo Ancelotti, while forward Antoine Griezmann says he is convinced the Rojiblancos can make it to Berlin.

Also interviewed exclusively are FC Porto striker Jackson Martínez, who recalls the time he met his footballing idol, and two of the FC Bayern München defenders who may be tasked with stopping the Colombian scoring in their quarter-final: Medhi Benatia and Juan Bernat.

We hear from AS Monaco FC pass master João Moutinho and Porto coach Julen Lopetegui, who gives a tactical insight into how to use possession. The new edition also celebrates the last-eight tie in 1966 that made George Best a household name across Europe. This issue also offers readers the chance to win an official adidas Finale Berlin match ball, includes comment from Guillem Balagué and FC Internazionale Milano great Sandro Mazzola, and features a comprehensive history of European Cup quarter-finals.

Champions Matchday is the official magazine of the UEFA Champions League and is available in print or free to download in digital format. You can follow the magazine on Twitter @ChampionsMag.
