  1. If I were to put money today on the Champions League winner, it would be Madrid. I’m on the Messi side of the greatest player of all time debate, but no one rises to big games like Ronaldo. That team is just pure class. I honestly thought Juve would put up a better fight. Dybala…. oof.

    Can’t wait for 2:45 kickoff of City / ‘Pool. Love Klopp’s comment: “There will be fire.”

    • 30 mins in City getting pummeled by Liverpool.
      this is not going the way i’d hoped

    • Went better than I could have imagined, Chris. What a team performance. Great night for Trent AA and Robertson. Whole team was sensational… One away goal in the next leg should seal it, but I’m not celebrating yet.

    to be fair… at the moment, in my opinion, the best team in the world is Bayern.
