    Ribery will replace Coman for Bayern

    Well...just hope that Henderson plays as well as he did against Bayern last time. Not impressed.

    If the game is tight, you know the bigger team is going to get the calls.

    Fabinho not starting is the thing I question. Oh well.

    I will be watching both. Not really have any favorites for these games. Hoping Depay has a better showing than the previous leg. He was atrocious in Lyon. I'm starting to doubt he can fix his inconsistency.

    When he left United and started producing pretty well in Ligue 1 I thought he was going to put his head down and do the work needed to use his immense talent and become a world class attacker. It seems like he's more interested in his rap career and money, though.

    Of course he went with the bad midfield combo.

    Bleh.

    Good call for no pen there. Lewandowski just stopped running and flopped over as soon as VVD touched him.

    He's had runs where he looks to be one of the better forwards out there. His latest trips with Oranje were also excellent. He just completely falls off a cliff after every good stretch and it takes a while for him to find his mojo again.

    Suarez steps on Denayer's foot, penalty for him.

    Meh, not a fan of this penalty decision, but I can see why the ref feels it's one. Both the ref and Denayer should know better with Suarez, though.

    EDIT: Messi with a beaut.

    What does VAR say?

    Nothing.

    What can I say...

    I think you didn't see the replay. Suarez steps on Denayer's foot. Even the spanish commentators say it's a Suarez foul.

    Milner is going to cost us this tie.

    It definitely isn't a foul on Suarez but not a penalty for me

    Didn't see it...what was the situation? Did Denayer go for the ball, miss, and then Suarez stepped on him as he ran by?

    Well, three penalty calls in the RO16 CL so far that I don't agree with, but VAR says otherwise.
