Well Bayern are taking this seriously with that team. Ancelotti must think Arsenal will be some sort of threat.

Sorry Arsenal fans, but...





Sometimes all you can do is laugh when there's nothing else that matters.

Napoli.

You had them in the palm of your hands. They were playing like a pub team who actually turned up drunk. They were essentially playing with 9 men because Benzema and Ronaldo tonight were completely invisible and had no effect on the game whatsoever. But nobody marked Sergio Ramos, nobody ever anywhere marks Sergio Ramos. Its baffling.

I always felt Napoli would concede despite their strong first half showing.  Defensively I don't think they had enough in the end.

Morata's celebration was nice.

Morata is class. Still miss him.

Part of me knew Napoli would probably weaken, especially since they scored so early, had it been 0-0 at half-time, i'd given them more of a chance. But I suppose that's what teams like Real Madrid do, still win when they're not playing great, that's why they're defending champions. They can save themselves for later in the competition.
Hopefully, Bayern have tired themselves out though. 10-2 in the last 16? Bloody show-offs.

Yep.  I can tell he still feels like a Juventino.

Duncan, you should do the Champions League predictions.

It really was amazing viewing though, even if it does keep the repetitiveness of the competition alive.

Blame the repetitiveness on UEFA. There was no way they were going to allow PSG to win this tie. We have been trolled big time.

Although it was an epic collapse and one could see it coming, the 2 penalties given to Barca were very lame..  

Sick of it.

It was an epic collapse but the referee was disgusting. When Suarez dived and actually got the penalty I knew. People are celebrating it as some epic comeback. Fixed.

In fairness the first penalty was correct and the referee seemed reluctant to give it.  The second one though...

It wasn't just the penalties though. So much shenanigans going on.  They are winning this tournament, I swear the only team that can stop them would be Leicester because that would be a better story.

Not any more since Ranieri was sacked.

I saw this article too:
https://www.theguardian.com/footb...uarez-dive-barcelona-cheating-psg

I still believe that teams from other countries would get a much harder time over any gamesmanship.  I guess it depends whether the team's 'face' fits the coverage or not...

Not many articles like that piece from other outlets.That reporter is Scottish I think. And we don't like bull shitters

They would, I dont recall any teaming getting away with so much in one match, over a season but not 90 mins. And if that had been teams like Real Madrid or Manchester United or any Italian team acting like that I think the press reaction would have been very different. Especially if it had been the latter.

to think Barca fans have that "everyone's against us" persecution complex.

With Ranieri gone that would make it an even greater story.

Tonight was amazing.  The real Leicester City team, fighting against the odds with spirit and organisation is back.  Roll on the quarter finals and hopefully another amazing night and atmosphere.
