Those are some really good matchups on paper for both days.  I still think Spurs have no chance to make it to the knockout stages with their group.

Yeah, they got a tough group.
On paper the groups set up for a good bit of interesting footie.

Also, the FA upheld Mane's red card.  Suspended for 3 matches

Yeeeeeeeahh...that was nasty.  I mean, you can see Mane was looking at the ball, but with the cleats so high up like that and the speed he had, it's a miracle he didn't kick Ederson's face clean off his head.

Not sure that was a red, or if there was bad intention BUT I can totally see why the ref would give it.

Rightly so.  I did not think there was any way he would escape punishment for how high his spikes were.

I think they have a chance...if Pochetino doesn't decide to rest the starters for the fixture against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Righto. I expected nothing less.

Glad I got my errands out of the way early.
 
2017-09-12 02:30:26 PM  
The question is...which match do I watch?

Barca Vs. Juve is probably the blockbuster match.  Atletico Vs. Roma is also very, very interesting.

harleyquinnical: The question is...which match do I watch?


I think I am going to go with Barce-Juve
 
2017-09-12 02:44:28 PM  
United and Basel or Barcelona and Juventus?
 
2017-09-12 02:48:14 PM  

harleyquinnical: United and Basel or Barcelona and Juventus?


Do you want to watch Mou?
 
2017-09-12 02:51:47 PM  
United already with a few looks at goal.

More about which announcers do I want to listen to.
 
2017-09-12 02:53:35 PM  
Chelsea 1 up already?
 
2017-09-12 02:54:14 PM  

Pista: Chelsea 1 up already?


No surprise, really.
 
2017-09-12 02:56:56 PM  
Sporting ahead as well, and Juve with a counter that was ripe for a goal.
 
2017-09-12 02:58:22 PM  

harleyquinnical: Pista: Chelsea 1 up already?

No surprise, really.


I know. What is Qarabag ?
Sounds like a cartoon monster
 
2017-09-12 03:00:18 PM  
No real love for any of the British clubs in action today, so I'm going with Barca v Juve.

Or a group of PacificIslands.

Oh what a cross, but no finish for United.

A quick search shows they are from the Azerbaijan Premier League.

I call them Q-bag.
Mostly because I don't know how to pronounce it correctly.
 
2017-09-12 03:01:19 PM  
Sporting 2 up
 
2017-09-12 03:01:33 PM  
Lukaku with a shot that is saved

PSG have a goal disallowed to remain scoreless
 
2017-09-12 03:02:40 PM  

Pista: Sporting 2 up


Those poor Greeks.
 
2017-09-12 03:03:20 PM  
Pogba is limping
 
2017-09-12 03:03:43 PM  
Hungarian commentator just said there's a lot of Hungarian fans at the Camp Nou. About 60 or 70.
Well, that's about the average attendance for a Hungarian league 1 match then
 
2017-09-12 03:04:42 PM  
Pogba stretched for a ball wrong and injured his hamstring, so Fellaini is warming up to replace him.

harleyquinnical: Pogba is limping


That'll be Foulli Mc Elbows to come on then
 
2017-09-12 03:05:26 PM  
PSG keeps their goal this time.
 
2017-09-12 03:07:17 PM  
Great save from Buffoon
 
2017-09-12 03:07:52 PM  
Dangerous free kick for Barcelona here...announcer jinx on Buffon in play...first shot is blocked by the wall and Suarez with the rebound forces the save from Buffon
 
2017-09-12 03:09:09 PM  
United denied thrice, by Post and then a prone defender, and finally the keeper.
 
2017-09-12 03:09:29 PM  
Anderlecht down to 10 men. Red card for Kums
 
2017-09-12 03:09:57 PM  
Barcelona seem in a mean mood today. I guess they feel they have a point to prove, they were not great in this competition last year.

Pista: Anderlecht down to 10 men. Red card for Kums


Looking forward to that highlight

More possession by them, but they are not getting much in shots.
 
2017-09-12 03:12:13 PM  
Juuuuuuuuuust a bit high on that cross
 
2017-09-12 03:13:24 PM  
Yes, that slide was worth a card, Bentachur
 
2017-09-12 03:14:27 PM  
Mikhitarian on the receiving end of a vicious slide worth a yellow, and there it is.
 
2017-09-12 03:17:00 PM  
Fellaini draws a free kick.  I am shocked.

Basel with a shot that should have been closer to the goal than it was.
 
2017-09-12 03:21:28 PM  
Fellaini gets the opening goal!
 
2017-09-12 03:21:56 PM  
Frank Zappa puts Chelsea 2 up
 
2017-09-12 03:22:21 PM  
Perfect cross and he gets the header that he is paid to get.
 
2017-09-12 03:23:06 PM  
Semedo booked for the big pull back
 
2017-09-12 03:25:31 PM  
Barcelona cannot make Juve pay for a dire mistake.
 
2017-09-12 03:25:55 PM  
Wait!
Xhaka plays for Basel too?
