Some thoughts so far on the CL....

Thought Spurs showed great character, but the scoreline flattered them a bit.  Had Gonzalez put away his second penalty I reckon that tie was over.

Similarly, Real definitely did not deserve to win that match 3-1.  That one's still not over.

Can't really tell much about Citeh spanking Basel.

Which brings us to Liverpool.  That's the first time I've ever seen our attack and defence both play well in the same game under Klopp.  That's not a criticism; we just tend to either win 4-3 or 1-0 (when we win).  The Hull lad had a blinder; van Dijk is looking solid and so far we're definitely not missing Coutinho.  I'm a big believer in deviation to the mean though, so at some point, Salah's going to hit a dry patch. Hopefully that will coincide with Mane's return to form...he showed glimpses at the weekend and to bag a hat-trick in the CL could be the boost he needs.

 

I can see 4 British teams progressing to the QF's, although hopefully it will only be 3...

Porto's defense was in shambles, partly due to missing key players (Felipe and Danilo) and partly because our wingers are just that, or even forwards. Marega and Brahimi didn't do nearly enough to contain Mane and Salah, Liverpool's best players.

 

If you're a smaller team, you gotta play Liverpool like Swansea did. Park the bus and don't let them run. When Liverpool scored the 1st, Porto had to go forward and all hell broke loose.

 

It would've been a different game if Otavio had scored that big chance when it was 0-0. But if my aunt had balls she'd be my uncle

 

--

 

Real definitely didn't deserve to win, especially 3-1. I thought Tottenham looked really good but their defense gets them in more trouble than it should. They have one of the prettiest offenses in the world and could've easily won in Turin

My 2 cents for UCL this week:

 

- Sorry, Mauro.

- PSG will not go through. That 3rd goal was lethal. They could do it IF they had lost 2x1 (1x0 in Paris wouldnt be a hard mission).

- PSG actually played very well but goals is what matters.

- Liverpool is not beating Real, PSG, Barcelona, Spurs, etc. They will go down on next stage.

- Spurs will make it to the finals.

For the simple fact that I see them playing better on the overall.

 

Now, when it comes to the Champions League, Spurs did great in a way tougher group with Real and Borussia and yet they scored more points than Liverpool on that 'mediocre' group there were in. 

 

Spurs 'worst' result was a 1x1 against Real in Madrid ffs .. other than that game they won every single one!

 

The way they played against Juventus in Italy just confirmed they are for real.

 

So yeah, I think they are doing better than Liverpool at this moment but Im not saying Liverpool is a weak team.

No way that tie happens. Spurs are wheeling out wheelbarrows of cash as we speak to take to UEFA to make sure they don't draw us in the next round.

I actually hope that if we get through that we avoid a British team. There's not the same magic.
