    Real vs Liverpool would actually be really fun to watch... I'd just prefer we saw it in the Finals.

    Too much of a risk (for Real) to play them (Liverpool) in one game than in two.

    It is, but it's what will happen.

    Those 2 games (Roma Barca and Real juve) it's why football is sport number 1 in the world faaaar away from the rest.

    So sorry for Gigi. It was his last chance. Oliver is a pos. You just don't give a red in that situation.
    And the penalty kick is not that clear. And certainly not a penalty in the 93rd minutes of a game that should go to OT.

    Gigi finish his career like Zidane. On a red card. Even if he has some games left in the seria a

    You can just feel the three-peat coming. I like Real and I'm a big CR7 fan so I won't complain for this one.

    Man, that's a brutal ending to Real/Juve. I like Michael Oliver but that was a very weak call.

    Yeah and I hate it when the talking heads say ‘well technically it was a foul so...’ If they called that level of ‘technically a foul’ all game there would be 100 fouls a game. You can’t call that under those circumstances.

    I’m a believer that a foul is a foul regardless of the game situation. Sorry that it was after a great comeback on aggregate, but A weak foul is still a foul. Had he not put both hands on the guy from behind and pushed him, no foul.

    Add to that Buffon acting like a buffoon.

    A foul is a foul needs to be universally enforced, though. In that case Juve should have been awarded a penalty in the 1st leg. What's frustrating as a player is when the standard is different and I think that's what Buffoon lost his mind about.

    I mean you can take that argument as far back as you want with all teams. You have different refs and expecting consistency even from pros is a waste of time I’ve learned.

    In that moment I don’t think Buffon was at all thinking of anything other than this one play.

    That’s all well and good in theory but that isn’t how games are actually called because there would be 100 fouls a game if they were.

    Maybe, but using the 7 games played yesterday as a sample the most fouls called in a game was 28, in the Palace/Brighton game. Most were in the high teens low 20’s.

    Russian clubs uefa coefficient is in danger for next year. :(

    The final of Cup of Russia (the winner will play directly in EL group stage) will be played between

    Avangard Kursk, 10th (out of 20 teams) in Division 1
    Tosno, 15th (out of 16 teams) in Premier League

    In Russian Premier League
    15th and 16th = relegated
    13th and 14th = playing against 4th and 3rd from Division 1 (home and away) playoff matches.

    So if Tosno is relegated, it will be the first time that a club will participate in a european cup, playing not in the top domestic League.
    (at least in Russian history. btw some teams already played in qualification rounds, but not in GS, IIRC)

    And also IIRC, the same situation happened few years ago in another country, but don't remember who it was. Or maybe I'm wrong

    9 games and 9 wins to reach the final. Even though they were lucky with their opponents. Only 2 teams from L2 and no one from L1

    But now, No way they can beat psg. I would give them 0.001% chance if psg had a champions league final to play and if they weren't already champions.

    I know Wigan played in the Europa League after being relegated the year before so this kind of thing isn’t unheard of, though rare.
