    Tosno is hardly a small market team. ;)

    So Arsenal or Salzburg today have the best chance at the upset?

    Salzburg are playing at home and they probably deserved better at Marseille than they got so I'm gonna go with them. Atletico are just so much better, more seasoned, and more pragmatic than Arsenal and the other two teams for that matter.

    Yeah they deserved better.
    Didn't get much luck and ref played the home pitch advantage for OM on a good penalty shout.
    That said, OM could have scored more too.
    3-1 or 4-2 would have been fair.
    I'm thinking OM will score tonight though, they love to counter and are good at it. That said, Salzburg can score a bunch on them too. 4-1 though seems hard to me.
    I call 2-1 or 3-1 Salzburg.

    Good to see Santi on the sidelines during pre-game.

    OM totally dominating the first minutes in Salzburg. A goal would make this tie pretty much done.

    Kos probably just tore his achilles. Never a good sign when its a non-contact injury.

    I don't wish anyone injuries, but that could be good for the french NT.

    True, true, but RB would have to score 4 unanswered goals. OM looking like the most likely to score so far.

    You're not wrong, but it sucks that he won't get retire from the NT on his own terms. He shouldn't be a starter for France, but I think he'd still be a valuable squad member for this summer.

    (Assuming it's as bad as it looked)

    yeah to be honest, he could be 3rd. But I fear DD starts him. And there are better CB than him to choose from IMO.

    Way more scarier, Sidibe is out for a while.

    Chambers caught him with his elbow on a long ball. It really didn't look like much, but he's bleeding a lot.

    Yea it looked like a lot coming down. I'm surprised they let him stay on the pitch without it being wrapped.

    I don't think the referee saw it, otherwise I have to imagine they would have done that.

    Pretty solid body check by Godin there. Good form, kept the elbows down, straight through center of mass. Could teach Tom Wilson a thing or two
     
    KJS14 and Duchene2MacKinnon like this.

    There's a 0% chance this game ends without a dissent yellow. After every single foul players are all over the ref.

    Wilshere 100% doesn't get that yellow if he didn't bark for Gabi to get one.

    Mustafi isn't trustworthy enough to be pulling that off right outside of his own box. Almost had a heart attack.

    I love when both teams press. Always seems like you're one or two passes from a massive break or counter.

    Great strength from Costa. Good quick play on that from Atletico, boot up field, good little tap back by Griezmann and Bellerin caught napping.

    Edit: Huh, I thought Griezmann got that from the keeper, but it looks like it was a poor defensive attempt by the CB. Can't send that back up the middle, gotta go wider with it.

    Can't say I've thought much of Ospina so far this game
