Instead of the cheers I could hear the boos for the red card followed by the groans for the goal
What are you doing in Serbia?
Atleti can't score. Need to win and pray over the last two legs
Normally, I would want to win my group, but as a Juve fan I think it is actually advantageous to finish second and avoid possibly facing RM or Bayern. If group stage ended today, Juve's possible opponents if they finished 2nd would be Liverpool, Man City, Besiktas, PSG, Tottenham, or Man U. I like my odds better than actually winning the group.
Huge win for Spurs. Hope they go deep in the CL. Real look lost this season though they'll progress easily since Dortmund have screwed themselves with two straight draws against APOEL.
buncha boring games today. Atleti finally get a couple including an all-timer from future ManU/Barca/PSG/NYCFC striker Griezmann
I think they’d be pretty big underdogs against all those teams except Bestikas and Liverpool.
Do (with loads of help) or die for Atleti tomorrow.
I only follow them, Spurs and Dortmund, so not sure of all the group possibilities.
Atletico needs a miracle. A win and Roma draw at home to Qarabag. Neither are likely.
Atletico gets its goal.....but so does Roma. Diego Costa to the Europa league . All they had to do was earn 4 pts off Qarabag
Not trying to find joy in your pain, but it was a big day for the Italian sides which made me happy. Roma and Juve are through, with Roma winning the group.
If Napoli can take care of Feyenoord and if Man City will oblige against Shaktar, I'll be extremely happy with that outcome...
All good - for a minute there was a glimmer of hope. This will probably usher in a new era at the Caldero....Wanda (ugh). They should have taken care of biz against Q.
I didn't realize that many Italian clubs can make it to the knockout. Quite the renaissance.
Shakhtar hand Man City their first competitive loss of the year! Impressive effort from my Ukrainians, outshot City and at times asserted themselves. Though it wasn't the top squad for City (my favorite English club for the record) there were enough of the regulars that on paper they should've at least picked up a draw.
Don't sleep on Shakhtar in the knockout rounds. If they can avoid PSG or Barça, I think they can have a puncher's chance at getting to the quarters.
Impressive to see all five EPL teams get to the knockout, with four as group winners. Flexing their muscles nicely.
Other scores of note: Liverpool got SEVEN against Spartak. Real with a late winner over Dortmund, though I thought Pulisic played fine. Porto won 5-2 over Monaco. Overall a fun day of games with a ton of goals.
All six Italian clubs will either be in the CL or EL knockout rounds. Impressive.
