Too easy for PSG. Mbappé was running wild tonight.

Juve need some wingers badly.

There is nothing happening on their wings and with nothing I mean not even a tumbleweed rolling around.

Bayern really didnt do too well on the transfer market last summer.

Playing the least mobile guy around in Süle as RB these days.

Lewa still scores, though

This could get ugly real quick for Lazio if Bayern still have fun playing.

We would be so good if we could generate an attack off the left too. When will Chelsea be freed from the shackles of Marcos Alonso

Dude yes, he's washed too. We're running the same back three that got pierced by Barcelona in the round of 16 3 years ago... There's no reason Ben Chilwell shouldn't be out there rn. He's been stapled to the bench since Tuchel came, maybe he doesn't trust him. Who knows.

Well, they got results lately. No reason to shake things up for Tuchel.
Coaches tend to very rarely change things as long as they are getting results.

Atletico is such an ugly football team.
They showed absolutely no desire at all to win the game.
When they conceded, you could see the nervousness and panic in their style of football.

They really have no plan B. It's just defend and hope you score one on the counter.

Ben Chilwell was a good young player at Leicester but he had his weaknesses. He got in the England team and he looked good for them because he was pushing forward so well, but even there the quality of his crosses left a lot to be desired. However the hype went into another gear (like the previous year for Maguire) and I don't think Leicester hesitated when the bids came in, especially as the player had his head turned. He was "injured" at the end of last season and young teenager Luke Thomas fitted in very well. We looked no worse with him rather than Chillwell and we had James Justin who was looking good too (but playing in place of the injured Ricardo). Then we bought Castagne in the summer. He is really good.

If Ben came back to Leicester now he wouldn't even be our 3rd best FB/WB and tbh I'd take Thomas over him too. On top of that we have Daley Campbell coming through from the U23s. We made money and got better.

I believe in Liverpool FC. They don't show the same cool level of play as they did last season, but I believe they will make it to the final for sure.

First it was Liverpool taking advantage of Mainz destroying Leipzig confidence.
Then Bern took advantage of Mainz destroying Leverkusens confidence.
Now its City taking advantage of Mainz destroying Gladbach confidence.

You are welcome.
