    The final 8 teams to qualify will play in Lisbon in a quarantined setting.

    Single leg knockouts after this round of CL matches. This CL is worthless

    It will be a tainted win for whomever wins it.

    Same as the league.

    Still.....I will take it. Both of them.

    Wow didnt realize they were single games in neutral venue. That makes it interesting actually


    However our team is garbage, lets face it. Now with Sandro out, we dont even have LB....Costa & Berna are done...they have no chemistry with this team. Hell im not sure anyone does. Its just useless passing around til clock runs out

    I think the problem is Sarri not our players.

    This problem existed before Sarri....its continuation of Allegri of 2018 and 2019

    I would largely agree. Sarri leaves a bad taste in everyones mouth due to his time at Napoli, and rightly so!

    However, there comes a point where it gets old and it wouldn't matter if we won the Serie A/CL double this year. People would still want him out because he doesn't wear a suit on the sideline and doesn't look like a Juventus coach.

    I want Sarri out because he's not Juventus material, couldn't care less if he showed up in his underwear. He's a provincial coach for a provincial team

    Sarri is terrible, end of story. Should have been sacked right after the Copa Final.

    The fact that management sacked Allegri for a coach like Sarri is comical.

    To be fair, how we played last year and being knocked out by Ajax was comical.

    Indeed it was....but we cant say we didnt see it coming when we lost to Young Boys, Atletico away and the shittiest ManUtd of last 50yrs

    Allegri got outcoached by Zidane at Cardiff and it was downhill since. Management took a look at that disaster loss and said, you know what will make us CL winners? Matuidi

    That Man Utd loss was annoying, we had no business losing to that team after we dominated them in Manchester and getting that beautiful Ronaldo volley.

    We also gained Douglas Costa and Bernadeschi. Unfortunate Berna is still an unknown on whether the 44m we paid was a robbery.

    It is for the quarter finals onward, the round of 16 was supposed to be business as usual. This CL doesn't mean shit anyway so whatever

    UCL win (we can all dream - although for our flaws, this tournament is wide open) and rebuild/sell off....regardless of what happens this season I think we need to make major changes.

    Not sold on Sarri at all, do also believe some of the players have finite sale values and now is the last time to cash in.

    A rebuild on the fly may not be impossible either, given bar Bayern and Liverpool, none of the heavy hitters are settled. Domestically, all of Inter, Lazio and Napoli could lose key players this window as well.

    If we can move some salary off our books, there could be real value in the market this year.

    Why is it whatever? You beat the best team, you win and celebrate. I will take it however it is.

    its no fans anyway, not like home advantage will mean much

    Playing at home is a psychological advantage whether there are fans there or not, you're crazy if you don't think so.

    Will I celebrate if we win? Sure, but its still a meaningless title at this point

    No doubt any title obtained this season will have an asterisk. That being said, I was pretty pissed off that we lost against Napoli in the Coppa Italia Final. These games and trophies do matter, asterisk or not.

    Unfortunately, I have to agree about the asterisk. Only because PSG and Lyon' season was cancelled. We are going to play the rest of the season and Lyon will play only a cup final before the game.

    As others have said, doesn't mean I will not celebrate it like crazy if we are lucky enough to win it. Obviously, first thing is first. We have to start playing better.
