    Selfishly I want City to win, or at least ensure the 2nd leg is competitive in hopes it means they drop points in the PL and let United have an actual chance at 4th.

    But if I had to bet on it, I'd say the final will be Real/Bayern.

    Real likely taking this fixture 2-1 or something so they have the agg lead as well as a couple away goals.

    Can't say that I feel Bayern has looked too well this calendar year so far, for the most part. They'll really need to elevate their play for this tie, I reckon. Can't rely on the 2nd leg at home to the same degree we have too often in the knockout rounds over the past couple years, either. Nervously looking forward to the game.

    Don't really care for the other tie. City winning it all would be slightly less "bleh" than Real, to me personally, but I'd want either to lose the final regardless of the outcomes of both ties.

    No Ronaldo for Real.

    Wouldn't matter anyway, City has Jesus Navass to lead them to victory.

    Silva hurt and coming out. Huge since city midfield was dominating.

    Real finally gotta past half once he came out. City dominated most of the first half but that doesn't really mean anything at this point since they didn't have any mouthwatering chances.

    Personally I'd like a City-Bayern final for the Guardiola storyline.

    City started struggling the second that Silva left the pitch.

    It's crazy that as soon as Ronaldo (and Benzema to some extent) isn't here, Bale becomes a one man show, ignoring his teammates in better positions, and playing for his ego.

    Without Yaya/Silva zero ability for City to drive the play up the middle.

    His diving has been so dumb today. He was actually going to get fouled both times he dived early. So stupid

    I've always thought Sterling was massively overrated.

    0-0 heading home,.not ideal but I'll take it - Pepe should have scored. Hopefully Ronaldo and Benzema are fully fit next week.

    Bad game between two bad teams really.
    None should be there based on how they play on the field.
