    If there was ever a game to show us that we're united it's this one.

    Both did well. Atalanta need a miracle to get in though. They have to win in the Ukraine and hope Dynamo doesn't win at home in Russia. Good Luck LOL

    Best home cooking call I saw today was Real not having their goalie red carded, as the ref found some reason not to after searching on VAR for anything to reverse it. He found some touch of the shirt minutes earler against PSG LOL. Some of these refs should be investigated.

    Not true. If Dynamo does not beat Pep then a win takes Atalanta through.

    If they win they have EL guaranteed. Given their poor and unlucky start this is a great outcome.

    If we lose today I rather lose high and get rid of Ancelotti.

    I don't know. I think it's really much more complicated, but I agreed with the decision of the referee. If there had been a foul committed by PSG in the build-up of a chance that then forced Real to make a foul, then it is clear to me that the foul that had taken precedence should be evaluated and consequently given. Otherwise VAR would be entirely useless.

    I'd still give him a chance if we succeed in the CHL. I think we have better chances of turning things around with him. Moreover, I think the players are a big part of the problem. They don't seem to understand just how much sacrifice the victorious teams have to make, and how much skill they have to show at the same time.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we get a real beating today but at the same time I'd still be disappointed :(.

    I'd go

    Mertens Llorente
    Zielinski Elmas Allan Callejon
    Rui Koulibaly Manolas DiLorenzo
    Meret


    If Fabian is fit I'd probably start him over Zielinski. I think having Elmas and Allan out there is important. If Rui can't go then put Maksimovic at fullback. Lozano should be a sub because the rest of the players have a better defensive workrate for this game and Llorente will be a threat on crosses and corners.

    I'm putting $50 on Liverpool to win. If we manage to pull off a result I'll be ecstatic that I paid $50 to see us win or draw at Liverpool. If we lose at least I'll have something.

    The oldest trick in the book, but I must admit that our performances warrant such measures. May your sanity be salvaged after the game.

    Ummm, that's what I said.

    First they need to beat Shaktar in the Ukraine and pray Dynamo flops at home in Russia, who will play a team with nothing to play for.

    Good luck with that scenario.

    Dynamo Zagreb is Croatian. Regardless I still don't think Atalanta will win in Ukraine.

    Carlo finally changed the formation, it’s a 532 with Mertens and Lozano up top. Looks like we’re parking the bus

    My bad, I kept thinking Dynamo Moscow for some reason. But yes, I think Dinamo wins against a Pep team resting, and Shaktar at home is going to be formidable to say the least.

    I'm not against the switch. Lozano and Mertens gonna look awfully isolated up there tho

    That was a great finish by Mertens. The review kinda made the goal celebrations tame but 1-0 lol

    They've had next to no chances. So far Ancelotti has started the game with the perfect tactics. The players have executed very well. There is still 65mins to be played and teams are most vulnerable within 10mins of scoring.

    Great half. 45mins from a great result. We're gonna need a couple subs the players are gonna get too tired chasing the ball for this long
