Reus pulls one back. Game on!


#2054

Perfectly reasonable choice, imo. He wanted to avoid exactly what happened by going with a more defensive setup (Dembele does fuck all defensively). Mendy is also someone who can match Dembele’s speed, so the plan surely was to play a controlled game first and throwing in Dembele in the later stages, when he can do most damage.


#2055

Messi can’t even take a free kick anymore.


#2056

Young men and racism?


#2057

He’s finished! Only 45 goals and 10 assists this season. :worried:


#2058

Surely better than Penaldo, right @AbouCuellar?


#2059

Trouble is, Ginter doesn’t do anything defensively either. He’s a headless chicken. TT’s plan just blew up in his face after 20mins.

The young men thing is true, but racism? Na.


#2060

Well yeah, but then a lot of people are better than Olivier Giroud.


#2061

Gotta say, Reus is still quite good player. Shame about his injuries.:cry:


#2062

Barca are just hitting against a wall.
Messi looks fucked today.


#2063

That should’ve been the goal to dispel any thoughts of a comeback.

Who the fuck were you passing to there, Ousmane?


10 years later commentators will still explain to us how to pronounce Pulisic. :expressionless:


#2064

This game has become a bit boring now.


#2065

Starting to wish for Leicester to come back to the CL. More chance of ET then. These matches are going nowhere.


#2066

Matthias Ginter. :joy::joy::joy:

EDIT:

It was Piszczek apparently. :expressionless:

#2067

3-1 Germain. Tie over.
Barca are so desperate they are trying Piquè as CF.


#2068

I hope Monaco and Juve avoid each other in the draw. That final would be epic! Plus I really really really do not want another fucking Madrid final!


#2069

Surely you want Monaco and Juve to draw each other in the semis then? :stuck_out_tongue:


#2070

Barca’s season resumed in a picture.


#2071

Now Barca’s era is truly over.


#2072

Well that would knock one of the Madrids out. But if Juve and Monaco are in separate draws then they can knock them both out… #postivethinking
