Wasn't able to watch either game, but WOOO Atletico!
That's why I want to see them play twice.
I understand Citeh are way out of their weight class here, so I'm just hoping for the most interesting matchups.
Club alliances aside and focusing only on the managers themselves, am I the only one that would love to see Pellegrini take down Guardiola in the CL final, right before Pep's switch to City?
please just no madrid derby.
Don't understand the 6 minutes of added time anyway I look at it.
Three subs were made before the 90th. Even with 1:30 added to that by the ref, that's 3 minutes.
And keep in mind I'm not a UEFAlona conspiracy fan at all. But it just boggles my mind sometimes the piss poor quality of reffing (just like Bayern against Benfica).
That would be pretty funny despite being highly unlikely.
how do atl keep getting so far? They aren't a traditional "big" club?
That happened because there was like 15 seconds of actually play during the first 3 minutes of stoppage time.
Well Benfica made it far closer than I thought it was going to be. Gj.
And I just love Atletico
Messi scoreless in 5 matches. Was he even playing today?
Real is going to win. Ronaldo is on a mission, he won't stop until there are no more critics to silence. I must admit I was very critical of him around January, but he bounced back admirably.
The irony in that would also be that a loss for Pep in that scenario would guarantee him CL football the following year if City don't finish in the top 4.
Meanwhile Ronaldo came up huge for Real Madrid to get them into the semis! Clearly not a big game player.
Football is funny sometimes.
Do Athleti play similar to Liverpool under Benitez?
Well coached club that is difficult to play against with a good squad.
No shot on target today for Leo either. Dude needs some rest
Ronaldo haters nowhere to be seen.
Based on the comments in this thread, I'm sad I missed the closing part of the Barca/Atleti game. Will have to troll for highlight replays when I get home.
They're not exactly poor, and they've done a great job building a team around Simeone that works great as a 'high level underdog'...sorta how Mourinho & Kloppo teams do.
Easy there. I get that it's CR7 fans time to poke fun at Messi, but it was Wolfsburg. Lewandowski scored 5 goals in ~10 minutes after coming off of the bench against them.
So what you're saying is Lewandowski is better than Ronaldo?
Diego Simeone best coach in the world. What a guy.
If the Liga slips away from Barca too then I don't see how Lucho survives.
