A spectacle for the global game, if there's one thing the Champions League quarter-finals have shown us is that on the pitch, the game is as striking as ever. Illustrating those headline names who have been centre stage this week, Yann Dalon has produced this short series that go the distance.
Big names, huge games. With talking points in every single game of the quarter-finals of this prized competition, the second leg of each match-up provides plenty of appetite for the Champions League. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Atletico Madrid, Monaco and the mighty Leicester City. Still a sentence that packs as much excitement as it does on pitch thrill, the game continues to blossom where the headline names are concerned.
In marking the occasion, artist Yann Dalon has created this portrait series that personifies a number of the high profile names that will battle it out in search of the game's most sought after silverware. Neymar Jr, Dybala, Reus, Mbappé, Neuer, Ronaldo and Mahrez are all the subjects under the respective spotlights. AA masterstroke of vibrant designs, it's a mighty strong way to mark a momentous series of fixtures.
Sharp as you like and grabbing an energetic take on all these players, not to mention the tournament, it's from the elite that this one sets sail.
