Two fascinating matches again tonight:

Barcelona V Juventus (agg 0-3)
Monaco V Borussia Dortmund (agg 3-2)

Will Barcelona do a remontada 2? It'll be tougher against Juventus, but if they score early and get some refereeing decisions going their way :rolleyes:, who knows?

There should also be goals in the tie at Monaco with two teams who enjoy playing attacking football. I've got nothing against Monaco, so I'm hoping they go through. Looking forward to watching Mbappé again who is something special at the ripe old age of 18!

Tactically Tuchel got that wrong. Adjusted now but too late? Bad defence vs fantastic attack! Factor in the bad luck they've had, even up to the Sahin free kick....they'll need aan incredible turn around

Can't disagree with that.
Pjanic, believe it or not, came through the "académie" at FC Metz before being snapped up by Lyon. He played quite well for his young age but was understandably inconsistent. Lyon then went and bought Gourcuff, so Pjanic lost his place and played fewer games before being sold to Roma.

Hope Atleti win the whole thing, they deserve it more than anyone after coming so close twice in recent years. Monaco would be my second choice for the sake of having a relatively small club win it, and you can't not admire all their great young talent. Wouldn't be against Juve winning it either, from a defensive standpoint they're great to watch. Lastly the unfortunate favourites, Real Madrid, can **** off, evil corrupt club built upon fascism, with wankers for fans (imagine booing your greatest ever player Ronaldo every season,) and UEFA sucking them off with bias referees.

Emphasis on ultras I hope, as in a crazed but very small minority. I'll start worrying if it was Real Vallecano levels of commonplace far right supporters. (Edit- Wrong club that's the far left one, but I know there's an especially far right one in Spain. Well, besides Real Madrid arguably.)

The difference in resources between Man U and Anderlecht is absolutely enormous.Clubs in Europe are managed so much better.
