    Masch in the midfield for barca and Bartra starting... looks like Lucho wants to stop the bleeding finally. I would've played Rakitic along side Biscuits and Masch, while having Roberto in for Munir. Still I really like this lineup.

    Leverkusen already up 2-0. Both goals from Chicharito.

    If they only could score like that in the Bundesliga atm....

    WOW

    What an amazing save by Neuer, one of the most impressive saves I've ever seen.

    Watching Walcott squander chance after chance makes it so clear who Sterling reminds me of...

    Well, looks like another one of those CL games we play without purpose, never getting out of 3rd gear. So little movement off the ball.

    that's why I felt Arsenal had a chance to win today, under Pep Bayern have these games away from home where they look so lethargic

    Xabi's a big part in that lethargy; can't help but think bringing Kimmich on for him would help spark them into full gear.

    I wouldn't mind that, but Xabi doesn't seem like that much of a culprit in that way today to me, at least not considerably more than the other non-wingers. Lahm, Vidal, Thiago, even Müller... just not moving around enough to give the passer options.

    Nice call, cgf! :)

    Vidal is the guy I would have taken off, so I get part of my wish, as well. Would have preferred Rode, though.

    typical Bayern, never got out of 2nd gear, but for them it won't matter as they will win group easily. Now Dinamo-Olympiakos actually have to play, there both were playing for a draw

    Apparently Lars Bender's absence has caused the entire Leverkusen team to be completely braindead and have no ****ing clue how to defend on a pro level.:shakehead

    Olympiakos take the lead in Zagreb, if all goes to plan that MD6 game in Piraus will determine 2nd place
