I'm counting on PSG to blow it even with their firepower.

Ronaldo gets a red card for being Ronaldo and Pulisic scores a hat trick

/interesting stat: BVB have never lost at home to Madrid (W3 D3)

not sure how much I am going to be able to watch.  Work is a nightmare right now and I am crazy stupid busy

Madrid is a god damn mess they are so boned today
 
2017-09-26 02:21:05 PM  
Pep is starting Delph.

ElwoodCuse: Madrid is a god damn mess they are so boned today


You think so. Their line up certainly looks like it means business
Navas, Carvajal, Sergio Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Ronaldo, Kroos, Modric, Bale, Casemiro, Isco

Looks like a full strength side to me.

The names aren't the problem. The performances by the names are

Fair point.  They have not exactly been the most consistent group.
 
2017-09-26 02:33:44 PM  
Moreno and Lovern starting on the same side of the field again.
I know where I would attack.
 
2017-09-26 02:34:24 PM  
Karius again?

Does it really matter? the back line is clownshoes all the way down

Matip is good, but gets no help.
Put another good cb next to him and that would greatly improve things.
Along with getting rid of Moreno, why is he still with the club?

There's a good chance of that.  PSG is top-heavy.  Lots of awesome attacking talent, soft at the back, no reliable GK.

Klopp likes him going forward.  That is the ONLY thing I can figure.

With that defence in front of him he won't get too...... oh wait
 
2017-09-26 02:42:41 PM  
Why the heck do Liverpool keep getting stuck with Keith Costigan as the match announcer?  Ugh
 
2017-09-26 02:43:38 PM  
Starting with Dortmund v Real, may move on if the lulz are happening elsewhere.

Stat from the BT commentator: This is Ronaldo's 400th start for Real in all competitions. He's scored 409 goals in that time.

Dortmund's stadium seems to have a really good atmosphere, I wonder how much of that is down to the safe standing area? Its surely only a matter of time before the government in the UK relents and allows it in England.
 
2017-09-26 02:43:54 PM  
Those poor kids "I wanted to walk out with Ronaldo but no! I get the stupid asst. ref"
 
2017-09-26 02:45:54 PM  
I'm starting to dislike Pulisic in the same way I dislike Chicharito.

Decent players, but if the North American footy press would just shut up about them for a damn minute I might appreciate them for their merits.
 
2017-09-26 02:46:21 PM  
oh wait, he's just the online prematch guy
 
2017-09-26 02:47:44 PM  
I'm not up with my Bundesliga, but what the hell happened to Reus?  Injured again?

Because they keep getting stuck on FS2

You could be listening to Wynalda for the Dortmund - Madrid game.
So it could be worse.
 
2017-09-26 02:49:59 PM  
good idea from BVB but a little slow to develop

good point, well taken

Spartak must have seen the little red corvette and thought that was a good color for their strips.

The atmosphere is good because they have very few tourists in the stands. It is why Old Trafford/Anfield is much better weeknights and like a library on saturday/sunday
 
2017-09-26 02:53:52 PM  
Oh goody. An early yellow.

Oh and John Strong.
Not sure I can listen to this.
 
2017-09-26 02:55:57 PM  
woowee close one for Dortmund
 
2017-09-26 02:56:16 PM  
Dammit Carvajal.

Hate it all you want, but the Jozy Altidore hype train crashed a long time ago. And then it burned to the ground. And then bulldozers covered the charred remains with mounds of dirt.
 
2017-09-26 02:57:35 PM  
WOOWEE another close shave for Dortmund.  They're playing fast and loose on D
 
2017-09-26 02:57:39 PM  
High pressing with CBs high up against Real Madrid is suicidal and BVB just almost paid for it.  Twice.

Enough about his touch.
What else have you got to say about him?
 
2017-09-26 02:58:33 PM  
Napoli ahead

This is why I have the match on mute. The only tarnishing point on La Decima was that that utter waste of space was the color commentator. He made the same ball-gargling point about Atletico's defense for about 100 minutes. It didn't stop until Bale's goal.
 
2017-09-26 03:00:05 PM  
That is a hand ball on Madrid there.  His arm was in an unnatural position, but they are lucky to only give up a corner kick.
 
2017-09-26 03:00:08 PM  
Dortmund almost gets one in, a bit of a hand from Sergio helped
 
2017-09-26 03:00:11 PM  
Jesus that was close.
 
2017-09-26 03:01:01 PM  
JFC, Ramos again just being Ramos and gets away with it.  Clear handball.  That's a PK and a red.
 
2017-09-26 03:01:12 PM  
farking Sergio, it's always Sergio.
 
2017-09-26 03:01:34 PM  

Pista: Napoli ahead


As is Besiktas
 
2017-09-26 03:01:47 PM  
Dunno. Would've hit his chest if his hands weren't up. Honestly surprised it wasn't a penalty.
 
2017-09-26 03:03:35 PM  
And Madrid take the lead.  well placed shot by Bale.
 
2017-09-26 03:03:40 PM  
argh.... bale
 
2017-09-26 03:04:13 PM  
Liverpool should be one up.
Firmino heads straight down the middle.
Spartak keeper still had to make a good save.

My stream is so far back. Great for Bale, cool finish.
