Chelsea fan.
Boateng looks like his done his calf, no contact with a Chelsea player but can't see him playing on.

Oh oh Boateng's knee again. That defense could be a problem against City

EDIT: Looks ok again

Wow there was absolutely no hand contact
Doesnt fit the ‘ref are in barca’s pockets’ narrative. How dare you. Let the caf enjoy the impending napoli comeback and call it a victory for the sport.

I know Barca are winning 3-1, but watching it, it doesn’t feel over.

Aren't Napoli looking to finally cash in on Koulibaly ?

Anyone seriously interested?
Looking like a dodged bullet, theres no way he is 100M. Terrible game, Ive only watched a few times but besides his obvious physicality he doesnt strikes as anything above the average defender.

It would be huge if Napoli could get the goals that they need now and win the tie from this position. They looked awful in the first half.

Koulibaly was trying to clear the ball, Messi came from behind. Not even a challenge & nothing indicate as dangerous action.

Why does he keep Boateng on the pitch? I don't get it. Why take this risk?

Regarding Neuer: I think he has been very good for at least 12 months. He struggled a bit and seemed to have regressed after he came back from his lengthy injury spell. However he turned it around.

Messi gained possession and Koulibally, while unintentional, clearly kicked him. Its a clear penalty, there isnt even a debate.

This.
I haven't really watched him before, but the fact that folks on here who watch him say he's been disappointing, and also, it seems it's a Barca tactic to let him have the ball and give it away, doesn't bode well at all

For just a moment Thiago really feared he was getting booked :D

Edit: And finally Flick does the sensible thing and takes off Thiago and Kimmich.

Chelsea are shocking at defending.
Lewandowski has been robbed this year. What a player
