The drama in this final and that Bale goal are perfect warm ups for Russia.

Quote
"Marcelo came onto his right foot and lofted a generic cross into the box. It came at chest height to Bale, who was facing away from goal on the edge of the box. He launched into a crazily athletic overhead kick that flew over Karius and into the net. What the hell was that! Even Zidane, who scored the greatest ever Champions League final goal in 2002, reacted with disbelief."

...

That might even have been Bale’s first touch of the game. It’s certainly the defining touch of his career. It was an outrageous goal."

--- Match commentary from The Guardian

A man was arguing with me saying the ref should've disallowed Benzema's goal saying that he disrupted Karius's throw. I did not hear the commentary as I watched the game in a bar while on vacation so I didn't hear what the so called experts said about it. I thought it was legit bc the keeper released it.

Nah, both commentators (Peter Drury and David Pleat, I think) said that the goal was legit, and it was a lack of concentration by Karius.  :beermug:

PSG 2 v Atalanta 1. Pulled the rabbits out of the hat to survive. Mbappe came on in the 60th min. to push Neymar and the rest of PSG to victory. Good game.

Textbook case of identifying an opponent's Achilles heel by Real Madrid and a partial erosion of Marcus Thuram's goals. Yet, despite the textbook, Real Madrid's quality on much of their crossing was poor. I would have been happy to see Moenchengladbach finish with all the points.

I waited 20 years to see two "Thuram goals" in a match and this Thuram continues to deliver them with calm and quality.

Really a case of a player building his career wisely.

For real both goals were real calm. The second goal was so nonchalant I had to take a second look to verify if he scored, no celebration nothing.
Moenchengladbach should've won but Madrid turned up the heat and pushed Ramos up and were lucky to salvage a point. I would've been pressure had they lost this one as well.

Bayern draw PSG in Champions League quarters as Real face Liverpool

Holders Bayern Munich will face last year's beaten finalists Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals of this season's Champions League, while Friday's draw for the last eight also threw up a clash between Liverpool and Real Madrid.

The draw also pitted Premier League leaders Manchester City against Borussia Dortmund, with Chelsea set to play Porto in the other tie.

Bayern defeated PSG 1-0 behind closed doors in Lisbon last August to win their sixth European Cup and remain the team to beat in Europe, having won 18 and drawn one of their 19 games in the Champions League since the beginning of last season.

The first leg is set to be played in Germany on April 6 or 7, with the return in Paris a week later.

Meanwhile, the meeting of Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool and Real is another re-run of a recent final, with the Spaniards beating the Reds 3-1 in Kiev in 2018 to win the last of their record 13 titles to date.

Liverpool bounced back from that to lift the trophy for the sixth time in Madrid in 2019.

Klopp's side are due to be away from home in the first leg, but it remains to be seen where that match will be played.

Atletico Madrid's home leg against Chelsea in the last 16 ended up being moved to the Romanian capital Bucharest due to restrictions imposed on travel to Spain by British authorities.

The winner between Liverpool and Real will go onto a semi-final against either Chelsea or Porto, throwing up the possibility of an all-English last-four tie.

Liverpool beat Chelsea in the semi-finals in 2005 and again in 2007.

Unbeaten in 13 games since the appointment of Thomas Tuchel as coach in late January, Chelsea will be expected to get the better of Portuguese champions Porto, who ousted Juventus in the last 16.

However, that tie could also be relocated given travel restrictions between the United Kingdom and Portgual which prompted both legs of last month's Europa League clash between Arsenal and Benfica to be played at neutral venues, in Italy and Greece.

Meanwhile City will be strong favourites against Dortmund, with the winner of that tie going through to a semi-final showdown with either Bayern or PSG.

Travel restrictions between the UK and Germany could also have an impact on City's tie against Erling Braut Haaland's Dortmund.

Both legs of City's last-16 tie against Borussia Moenchengladbach were played in Budapest, as were both legs of Liverpool's tie against RB Leipzig in the last round.

This season's semi-finals are due to be played in late April and early May, with the final scheduled for May 29 in Istanbul.

QUARTERFINALS

Manchester City vs. Borussia Dortmund
FC Porto vs. Chelsea
Bayern Munich vs. Paris Saint-Germain
Real Madrid vs. Liverpool

SEMIFINALS

Bayern Munich or Paris Saint-Germain vs. Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund
Real Madrid or Liverpool vs. FC Porto or Chelsea

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Who's your bet to start at home?

Some view TA as not having Tuchel's trust rather than not fitting. Either way, he irked Thiago Silva's wife sufficiently for her to take to social media to express her dissatisfaction.  :rotfl:

EDIT: He = Werner.

My guess is he will try to use Giroud or Haverts and adjust d game plan accordingly, yeah Tammy ent do enough to cement he place, but I doh tink he deserve dat freeze out he getting now, He still top scorer and dat should count for something.....but den Zouma have real goal threat on set pieces, but does also not get much playing time because he is considered to be d least technical of Chelsea CBs

PSG were playing stylish football in the first half, Di Maria and Neymar were too tricky for Man City. 2nd half was such a disappointment, PSG had 9 shots in the first half and 2 in the 2nd half. Man City midfield and high pressing completely dominated in the 2nd. The city goals were lucky but they also missed a sitter in the first half against the run of play. The chance where Florenzi ended up taking out Neymar in the box was a big miss as well.
Idrissa Gueye got one of the stupidest red cards I ever see, he stamp a man leg going away from goal. The threat was diminishing, he lose his mind and put his studs in Gundogan calf.
Mbappe was anonymous.
2nd leg should be good.
