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.
