Champions League live updates
Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has been found guilty of tax evasion and sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison.
The 62-year-old, one of the most powerful figures in German football, was charged with dodging 3.5m euro (£2.9m) in taxes through an undeclared Swiss bank account.
But when his trial opened on Monday, he admitted to avoiding 15m euro (£12.5m) more. Then it came out through an examination of documents he provided to investigators shortly before the trial that he owed 27.2m euro (£22.7m) in total.
German news agency dpa reported that prosecutors had demanded a five-and-a-half-year prison term, while his defence team was looking for a suspension of sentence on probation, arguing that he had turned himself in for tax evasion and provided details to the court.
Lionel Messi hailed under-fire Barcelona as back to their best as they saw off Manchester City to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League and keep alive their hopes of the treble.
– Barcelona's Lionel Messi.
We were coming off two very serious setbacks away from home (at Real Sociedad and Valladolid), but more so for the performances than for the results.
Here we've returned to be the Barcelona that we want, that the fans expect.
Messi also rubbished suggestions Barca's Primera Division title hopes have been sunk by their recent poor form, pointing out there are still 11 games to go - including a clash with leaders Madrid.
– Messi thinks Barca can still win the league.
I don't know if the criticism was exaggerated or not. We're the first to be self-critical and we know we haven't done things well, we know when we've done badly.
We lost the opportunity to continue being close to Real Madrid, but the league isn't lost whatsoever. There's a long way to go.
