    Hope for Bayern to put up a decent fight to redeem some pride that was lost after the 3:0 in Paris. I personally expect a draw to happen and chances are the game will be pretty boring, since it doesn't matter at all. Really depends on how much the coaches can motivate their respective teams to actually care. Imo they should invest quite a bit, it's a great matchup on the biggest international club stage, there's glory to gain.
    Chelsea - Atletico could be more interesting though.

    Bookkeepers game tonight, if we go out then Alex Sandro may go in January to recoup the monies lost.

    Possible scenarios:

    Group A: Utd need a draw to qualify as group winners. Losing by 3+ goals could see Utd finishing 2nd depending on Basel result. The only scenario where Utd don't qualify is if they lose by 7 goals or more and Basel wins.

    Group B: PSG qualify as group winners as long as they don't lose by 4 goals to Bayern

    Group C: Chelsea are already through, but need to win to secure top place. Athletico need to win and need Roma to lose to qualify. Roma need to win or better Athletico's result to qualify

    Group D: Barca already through as group winners. If Sporting wins, Juve needs to win too, or Sporting goes through.

    Group E: Liverpool need a draw to qualify, win and they top the group.

    Group F: City already through as group winners.

    Group G: Besiktas already through as group winners. Porto/RB Leipzig qualify based on who gets a better result today

    Group H: Spurs through as group winners. Real 2nd. Dortmund need to better APOEL FC's result to qualify for Europa

    Some very interesting ties.

    Dortmund only need to match APOELs result.

    If Atletico win Roma are out even with a draw. Head-to-head counts.

    BBC is suggesting Atlético's bus is late due to traffic.

    If Chelsea vs. Atlético start late, shouldn't Roma vs. Qarabag be delayed too?

    Our lineup suggests otherwise.

    Putting the bias of the twitter account aside, 31 unsuccessful touches in 5 games is crazy.

    No Gelson, no Coentrão, no Bas Dost and Alan Ruiz upfront :lol:. I guess Jesus has already decided we don't have a chance to qualify.

    Yes

    I agree, although "sloppy retard" made me chuckle.

    No Messi.




    Easy 4-2-3-1 for Bayern.








    A bit risky from Allegri.

    What the hell is our line up? We have given up before the game even started. Embarassing but the coach won't care.

    Maybe Jesus is trying to keep the team alive, defending deep and then later hit them with a fresh Coentrão, Gelson and Bas Dost?

    We have an important away fixture in the league on saturday and Jesus gave the league priority. Not only we have a very hard game at Nou Camp tonight, i also don't believe Olympiakos can stop Juventus, so Jesus clearly made his choice.

    Boavista away on Saturday which isn't easy but far from being a big game.

    We're starting at the Camp Nou with a bad rightback for a leftback and Alan Ruiz which is the equivalent of playing with 10 men so it's pretty unlikely we'll get anything from this even if they don't have Messi. The team has been getting tired so Jesus seems to have just accepted we won't be winning this game which we shouldn't be doing against anybody.

    :lol: I don't think so mate. Jesus took Coentrão, Gelson and Bas Dost out of the starting eleven. Well i don't think Olympiakos can stop Juve anyways.

    Take another look at that Barcelona lineup :nervous:

    They're eminently beatable

    No, take a look at ours. Our best striker, our best winger and our best full back are on the bench. Alan Ruiz up front is like Barcelona playing with André Gomes as striker.

    That's what makes it worse. At full strength we're definitely capable of beating this Barça team with no Messi, Busquets, Ter Stegen, Umtiti, Alba, etc. and yet we seemed to have given up before the game even started.

    Shame I'll be missing Bayern-PSG, that's bound to be a great game. Neymar can become the first player to score in all group stage games of a Champions League edition today.

    I believe Heynckes is treating this as a better training match.
