Bayern sure looks impressive this season
They score in volumes and  their defense is truly amazing

Neuer should have a chair with him and watch the game more confortably.

Very solid team indeed.

Arsenal get one back!

I am really impressed with Bayern's pressing. Doing a great job of defending from up front.

Rough night for Arsenal. 3-1 down. Three away goals for Bayern.

Mandzukic is a very impressive striker. I haven't seen a lot of him. He looks a much better player than Mario Gomez. Never been high on Gomez.

Porto dominated the entire game. It was 17-1 in total attempts...! Malaga had one shot the entire game!

Our goal was offside but man, this should've been a blowout. Malaga must be happy to walk out of there only down 1-0.

João Moutinho is the man, my favorite player in the world, such skill, technique and hustle, the hustle part kinda like Bradley. Relentless. Best player Porto has had since the '04 CL season.

These yellow and orange strip for Barcelona are ... funky.

Not sure if it is good funky or bad funky.

1-0 AC Milan over Barcelona!! Kevin-Prince Boateng!

C'mon Milan! I'd love to see Barca knocked out. Tired of them winning.

they look like caribean cocktail!

barcelona looked tired , uninspired and slow. I don`t know if it was forced by milan`s tactics. can you remember the last time barcelona didn`t create a single chance?

good result for milan and even better for us cause it`s going to be an amazing second game.


BTW i doubt anyone watched it but the other game was on of the best of the season!!!

Huge Comeback for Tottenham yesterday.  Scoring the equalizer to send them through to the next round at the 89 minute mark.  Excellent shot from distance too.  Bring on Inter Milan!

Mousa Dembele got the tying goal.  It was real nice. 

Lyon did an excellent job on Bale all game. There were very few times that he was able to touch the ball in open space.

Strange outfield choices by Fergie

Wayne Rooney dropped. Nani in for him. Kawaga dropped. Giggsy in for him.

Nani has had a really inconsistent year. Doesn't track back defensively. Undisciplined.

Giggs has been caught out in just about every game he has played against top opponents this year. Too old for these nights. Fine for opponents in the lower half of the premier league but struggles against the best of the best.

Brilliant. Kaka is going to come on. Di Maria injured.

Delighted to see Kaka play.

IMHO what you said about Giggs applies to Kaka too....
I think Modric was the better option for Di Maria.
BTW it`s giggs` game no 1000 if i`m not wrong... amazing achievement

Nani starting was a shock for me too. This season has has clearly lost a few places in the rotation and Kagawa had just scored a hat trick a few days ago.

I don`t like Welbeck. I can`t remember him dribbling past an opponent today he had (and will have more) chances to play one on one but he can`t create space to shoot the ball.
