Can someone refresh my memory:  is it this round or the next round that PSG traditionally crashes out in spectacular fashion?

Yes.

I actually want PSG to beat Madrid.
And then flame out in the next round.

Don't we all?  Specifically, ?I want them to beat RM, draw Barca, and lose to them in the round of 8 in spectacular fashion AGAIN

You figure the favorites to get to the round of 4 are PSG, Barca, Munich, And Citeh.  Any of those clubs that does not make it, if they do not meet in the round of 8, means an upset.

In Europa League, Moscow couldn't score on Belgrade despite 65% possession

Agreed. My hope is that my Reds at least get past Porto and to the round of 8. I would consider that a success.

Is anyone actually going to watch a game today that isn't Spurs vs Juventus?

Might flip between it and Basel and Citeh, but the Spurs match will be the prime one

And now we get the obligatory "When will Harry Kane leave Spurs" segment.

I am going to split screen the matches, with sound on the Real Madrid match.

And by RM, I mean City.  I have been short on sleep, and the dog is continuing her torture regimen.

I'm gonna watch June!

They paid a lot for Buffon in the transfer market :)

Lacazette out 4-6 weeks for the Gunners. Knee surgery.
And now we return to our Champions League coverage
 
2018-02-13 02:37:33 PM  
Ugh, John Strong and Stuart Holden
 
2018-02-13 02:38:19 PM  
Glad to be back with you goons for UCL knockout round action.
 
2018-02-13 02:40:19 PM  
BT has Juve/Spuds and Basel/Citeh. Will watch the former.

Same here.  I wouldn't mind Citeh crashing the fark out on the next round either, but they'll probably reach at least semis.
 
2018-02-13 02:47:24 PM  
75sec, and Spuds are jobbing.
 
2018-02-13 02:47:53 PM  
Well that was quick, Higuain in no time

Zerochance: Glad to be back with you goons for UCL knockout round action.


Who are you calling a goon?
Oh, us, well care on then.

Early goal for Juve.
1-0

sephjnr: 75sec, and Spuds are jobbing.


All humour aside that was an excellent FK/volley combo.
 
2018-02-13 02:48:30 PM  
Alli screwed up big there, and nothing the defense could do about it.
 
2018-02-13 02:48:51 PM  
I'm zapping my lunch and think "someone's gonna score"

Gawddangit...

Wow, early to go Spursy.
 
2018-02-13 02:51:15 PM  
Where the hell was this Juve side during the group stages?
 
2018-02-13 02:52:15 PM  
Basel just missed a great opportunity with the City keeper off his line, and he did not get enough on it.
 
2018-02-13 02:53:22 PM  
PEN!
 
2018-02-13 02:54:25 PM  
Lloris ... almost saves the PK
 
2018-02-13 02:54:32 PM  
Penalty on Davies...and booked, and goal.  He got ball first and no way should that have been a PK
Good jorb Spurs.
 
2018-02-13 02:54:39 PM  
Higuain sitting on a hat trick
 
2018-02-13 02:54:43 PM  
Spurs being spurs.
Not sure I agree with the call though.
Higuain converts the PK.
2-0
 
2018-02-13 02:54:44 PM  
Wow. I was NOT expecting this

Yeah, but not 2 in 9 minutes Spursy
 
2018-02-13 02:58:25 PM  
Basel want a PK Of their own, but nothing doing.

Good jorb Spurs.


Sure looked like a PK to me, and that's coming from a guy who hates Juve.

Old Italian sayin from Milan fans, If you shake your hand with a Interista, you wash them. If you shake with a Juventino, check your pockets
 
2018-02-13 03:00:10 PM  
City get the goal off the corner.

Gundogan with the opening goal for City.
Corner kick that the defender fell asleep on.

It looked to me like the guy was already going down, which is why I don't agree with the call.
 
2018-02-13 03:01:19 PM  
Left to grab a protein shake and it's still 2-0. Must be a mercy rule just passed.

Nice, except for the commute.

Not so much fell asleep on as faked out.  They were expecting a 4th short corner.
 
2018-02-13 03:02:53 PM  
How is that not a pk then?!
