In Roma probably they are starting to think to make a pilgrimage to Milan to thanks Inter for gifting to them Zaniolo, if you look at players that were able to score two goals to Casillas in a single Champions League match since 2008 you have only Del Piero, Gerrard, Inzaghi, Messi and Huntelaar.
If he continues to play in this way they could resell him at 100+M in 2020.

Serie A flavour this evening in Liverpool-Bayern, the deutsches played like a random Chievo to hold the 0-0 :lol:
But looks like i haven't missed anything choosing that match over Lyon-Barça.

Something to look forward to -
https://www.vulture.com/2019/02/leslye-headland-scores-will-ferrells-hbo-fifa-scandal-movie.html
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD news for fans of Will Ferrell, sports and/or scams. According to Deadline, Russian Doll creator and director Leslye Headland is teaming up with Gary Sanchez on a film about the 2015 FIFA scandal for HBO Films based on authors Mary Papenfuss and Teri Thompson’s 2016 book American Huckster: How Chuck Blazer Got Rich from-and Sold Out-the Most Powerful Cabal in World Sports.

Will Ferrell is reportedly set to star as Blazer, a Queens-born son of a stationary store owner who climbed to the top of the international world of soccer, joined the FIFA Executive Committee, used that position to commit a whole bunch of fudiciary crimes including embezzlement and, in the hopes of mitigating the repercussions of his own wrong-doing, agreed to wear a wire for the FBI and the IRS to bring down his soon-to-be former associates. So, in a nut shell, The Informant with cleats.

Liverpool - Man U - Milner at right back will be a problem again as will Matic's absence. 3 -3 draw I'm guessing.

draw, yes.
pity Spurs lost, otherwise it'd be 3 teams within 2points and Game On for the title - am tired of the constant 2 horse races in recent years

ManU v Liverpool - too many injuries, and both teams happy with 0-0. :(

I think Liverpool would take 0-0, but I don't think they'd be very happy with it.

In Madrid they have stopped saying "we are more a team and stronger without Ronaldo" and dramatically shifted to a loud crying because he's gone.
There are a couple of bloggers on AS that for months have said how Madrid has made Ronaldo great and not vice versa that now are claiming Florentino head and asking to buy him back for 300M :lol:

Anyway i think they were killed by the two clasicos of last week, in the first one they have played way better but without being effective and only an incredible second half from Suarez punished them.
And they still have an autoinflicted handicap because Solari from the first day on charge started a feud with the two classiest players they have (Marcelo and Isco) and doesn't see them putting all the pressure of the attack on a 18 years old (Vinicius Jr.) that isn't very effective when comes to scoring goals.
Well, there is also Ramos that was an idiot to force a yellow card on the first leg to rest for the next round.

After the shipwreak the funny thing is that the "afición" wants Mourinho thinking that he can solve every problem they have. Mourinho, the one that in four years with them has won almost nothing and after he was gone they started winning Champions after Champions, that looks done and he's only able to play the catenaccio that they hate (i still remember when they fired Capello after winning the Liga because the didn't like how he played), i started to think of a Madrid with the bus parked for 85 minutes and Fellaini subbed in as centre forward in the final five minutes to score a goal from a dead ball play and i can't stop laughing.

Plus Ajax was amazing. As they have been the whole year in the CL. (in the league they have clear off days).

They deserve ample credit. Not just Real being bad.

Yep, Ajax played well, but Real Madrid's defence was atrocious. Ajax should have scored at least 6. It was like watching the end of "the galacticos" all over again - slow predictable sloppy football.

Everyone recognize the amount of talent Ajax have but the demerits of Real were so big that probably they would have lost in a bad way even against a random Porto whereas i don't think Ajax would have won against an Atlético.

So Man United follow Ajax’s lead and comeback against the odds.

PSG owners now spent 1.2 billion since taking over and still not got further than the last 8. :lol:
