Agreed, but it wouldn't surprise me to see Porto win today, Roma has been lacking consistency on Serie A.

Ajax have a very solid team to surprise Real, De Jong and De Ligt have been really great.

PSG is without Neymar and Cavani, so its already a downforce, they still have a very good team, but I think United are a step above from them now with their streak.

Came here thinking I would agree that NBA should divide like Soccer Does.

Start first year off with top 10 payrolls being in Highest Division. Middle 10 Div 2 Rest in Div 3.

Carry on then... soccer it is. Enjoy fellas.

Mbappe is a real prodigy.
Reminds me of Ronaldo(the brasilian ofc) more than any other player in the last 15 years.
He will take over the world as soon as Messi and C.Ronaldo start to slow down.
Paris SG are actually good this season. Man Utd need to reshape at summer.

LOL. Still didn't get over that 5-goal butt kicking from CR7 last year, huh? And don't forget, we still have the current balon d'or winner.

Ajax is in Amsterdam and I watched a game there I think it's Ajax? Blown away about the fans I thought America had crazy fan, nope not even close . I felt like I was at a riot combined with a phish festival.

Why?

America is the diet soda of sports fans. We **** suck. I do my best but even the Eagles games in Philly are mild compared to division 7 soccer games overseas.

Why? What have you seen in this country that would lead you to believe otherwise?

America is the diet soda of sports fans. We **** suck. I do my best when I go to live games but even the Eagles games in Philly are mild compared to division 7 soccer games overseas, and Philly is the most sports crazed american city I've lived in.

Mostly because I've only seen fans in usa. I watched when philly when they removed stop light's and police were like nope not doing anything to a 1000 fans.

To be fair our games are solely American city team vs American city team.

And we have the most dominant military in the world so we don't have small dick syndrome like say a Denmark would.

For other nations with competitions like this it's a simulation of war and nationalism for them. So it's a much different competition overall and has a lot more wrapped up in it then merely a sporting event.

LOL Ajax actually deserved to win this. If they didn't go for this so called offside goal I don't see Real coming back. A 4-peat ain't happening btw.

Juve! Why do we always seem to draw Athletico?? Some good battles over the years and I like our chances, but this is getting old and I am worried about the matchup.

I’m also a BVB fan, by the way. I lived and worked in Germany and Switzerland when I was younger, adopted BVB as my team, and have stuck with it. I’ve got gear, but nothing compared to my Juve collection. I have a Juve framed print on my office wall above my desk, right next to my Sox, Pats and C’s prints.

And, for what it is worth, I am an LAFC season ticket holder. VERY fun first season and looking forward to the next. Best American soccer stadium, in my opinion. Awesome experience going to an LAFC game, and if any of you are in LA for a home game, let me know. I have 3 seats and my family sometimes cannot go.

Two great matchups in Liverpool-Bayern and Lyon-Barca today. Especially the first one, obviously. Should be a close and exciting tie even though Pool is missing some crucial players and Bayern is not at its strongest right now.
