There will be a minute's silence ahead of this week's UEFA Champions League semi-finals in order to pay tribute to Tito Vilanova and Vujadin Boskov.

Tito Vilanova: Former Barcelona coach passed away last week

Bayern Munich play host to Real Madrid on Tuesday before Chelsea face Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

And UEFA.com announced: "A short announcement will be made in the teams' native languages explaining the silence while a montage of the two coaches, who both died in recent days, will be displayed in the stadiums.

"Teams have been given the option of wearing black armbands."

After a lengthy playing career, Vilanova worked as an assistant to Pep Guardiola at Barcelona during a gloriously successful period for the club.

After Guardiola stepped down, Vilanova took charge and led Barca to the 2012/13 La Liga title but he had to resign in July last year and sadly died at the age of just 45 on Friday after a battle with throat cancer.

And Serbian coach Boskov passed away at the age of 82 on Sunday.

He won a domestic double with Real Madrid in 1979/80, guided Sampdoria to their only Serie A title in 1990/91, and took Yugoslavia to the quarter-finals of Euro 2000.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
