Kane will score atleast one goal ^

I think in England he might but scoring against Juve in Italy is a mighty task

Real Madrid - PSG 3-1
Porto - Liverpool 2-1
Bayern - Besiktas 3-0
Chelsea - Barcelona 1-1
Shaktar Donesk - Roma 1-2
Sevilla - Man United 0-0

Well, got Man City almost right (easiest prediction ever Smile ) but totally underestimated Tottenham/overestimated Juve. Buffon showing bad reflexes in the second goal Frown
Kane scored, nomad, you were right in that one.

And people say nomad is wrong Tongue

I use to dislike kane but now liking him , amount of effort he puts to convert goals is commendable
Plus buffoon reflexes were fine enough else Hurricane’s header was sure shot


Real vs Psg, Nevas and defense will help psg alot to score goals, have zero faith in real defense against bappe x nmar x cavani trio

I am putting my money on Madrid. Don’t trust the league of mercenaries for the life of me. Defense is also bad. RM will step up.

Fuming! Embarassing display, like they never played a game in the CL before. A wonder how we got out of the group stage like this. Keeper with a bad error in the first goal (should’ve put Casillas on, has more experience for these matches) and then the team fell apart and kept making terrible passes.


Real Madrid - PSG 3-1

At least I got one right.

Lucky Barcelona, played pretty bad and scored in an error. Messi scored against Chelsea, no traditions are sacred!  Great game by William.

Bayern game (series) was over when the Besiktas defender was sent off.

Took Ronaldo 15 games to score once against Chelsea. Wink

Wilco, why did you think Barca played bad? Could you elaborate.

Didn’t think they played bad themselves. Aside from 3 shots Chelsea didn’t do much. Hazard was contained mostly apart from the assist. Morata didn’t even have touch when he came in.

Conte plan failed. Defensive side of the plan was sublime I’ll give him that, but counter part was woeful. Imo he also failed tactically. Against this pragmatic Barca should’ve gone on the attack at home and play Morata alongside Hazard. You should try to bag 2 goals before heading to Camp Nou.

Barca handed in some attacking power for that defensive upgrade. With Arthur and good Dembele and Coutinho we will see 4-3-3 soon enough.

Think 1-1 is good representation of game.

Don’t see Barca as favourites though for CL. Real are favs imo. Only see Barca stopping them but not sure if they will make it that far. Hope for a good foundation to build on next season though. Could be going for a treble then.


Sorry again for telegram-style post.

Barça had more ball possession but barely created any opportunities, Chelsea looked more dangerous in the first half having most of the chances. Second half was worse Chelsea. Don’t think they could have more attacking power, would just create more space for Barça.
1-1 is not surprising thought, that was my prediction anyway Smile
Barça will go through anyway, don’t think Chelsea has much chance in Nou Camp with this result.

Got the Man United 0-0 draw correct, Mourinho is so predictable now Frown
Happy with the Shaktar win, ukraine and russian teams usualyl struggle after the winter break.

Don’t think Real is favorite, team is capable but too unstable. Actually hard to say this year, maybe Man City and Bayern but have to see them tested against a strong side. Real, Barcelona and PSG would go after them.

Personally rooting for Man United because of Mourinho and Liverpool because they are just fun to watch (unless they are playing Porto Neutral)

Honestly….would like to see Liverpool win it. Dark horse imo and think with Salah in form they might be able to pull it off. I like Klopp as a coach.

Don’t mind Man U winning it though. Would be great achievement for the relative youngsters.
