I am not expecting much from Besiktas today, but if they can manage that away goal with out conceding more than 2, they will be in a better place.  Barcelona and Chelsea should be decent, emphasis on SHOULD.

Never skip leg day.

Tr0mBoNe: Never skip leg day.


I've read this headline that way three times and thought, "holy crap, Sunday was leg day, give me a farking break!" three times.

Ugh. Leg day.

Wow.  The Chelsea match is being broadcast on FS1 AND FoxHD

Fox just put out their broadcast schedule for the World Cup. 2/3rds of the matches are on network Fox and not cable

Which is nice for trying to reach more coverage.  They also said they are streaming all the matches.

Yeah, I'll get right on that following Chelsea on Twitter thing.

I'm guessing that's their World Cup A-team

Besiktas is better than they're getting credit for.  I still think Bayern comes out with the win, particularly at home, but they're going to have to work for it.

No doubt.  Sadly.

Evening all. Barcelona change strip looks like Roma.
 
2018-02-20 02:53:32 PM  
that was a weak freekick

The only reason I would consider watching Chelsea and Barca over Bayern and Besiktas is because of Messi trying to break that hoodoo that Chelsea has on him.  7 shots on target but no goals in 8 matches.
 
2018-02-20 02:54:51 PM  
This ref in Munich is letting lots of contact go.  And then awards Munich with a free kick.

midpoint: Evening all. Barcelona change strip looks like Roma.


Now that you mention it, kinda does
 
2018-02-20 02:55:53 PM  
Oh that was inviting, but nobody in Munich can get a head on target.  Out for a goal kick

Were it gold font instead of orange,
I would agree.

Messi "excuse me while I blow right by you"
 
2018-02-20 02:57:24 PM  
Now, free kick for the Turkish side...into the wall.
 
2018-02-20 02:59:34 PM  
A couple of floaters from Munich, but the final cross was too high and the attacker knocks it out for a goal kick.  The ball looked like it was filled with helium.
 
2018-02-20 03:01:06 PM  
Besiktas down to 10 for denial of an obvious goal scoring opportunity.
 
2018-02-20 03:02:24 PM  
Vida sent off because the midfielder passing back to him was lazy with the pace, hung it right out for Lewandowski.  No question about the red card.

They had better, since it means Besiktas will be defending short handed for next 72 minutes.
 
2018-02-20 03:04:45 PM  
Oh wow, what a blown chance.  Besiktas get the turnover against the run of play but cannot even get the shot on target.
 
2018-02-20 03:10:38 PM  
wow, lucky break for Chelsea, Messi wasn't ready for a cross
 
2018-02-20 03:12:03 PM  
Munich finally with a quasi-shot but it is not quite on target and no issue for the Besiktas keeper
 
2018-02-20 03:12:19 PM  
No real chanes for either side, chelsea/ Barca.  lots og midfield action.  Barca dictating the pace but every time they get in the box Chelsea pokes the ball out.

26th minute 0-0

Hamas Rodriguez takes a shot to his ear, does a spot on Brad Pitt impression

Nope.  It happened in the D, 19 yards out.

And the Besiktas defense do well after almost getting caught over the top.  Forward was inside and he could not get it down

Fabri WITH THE HUGE SAVE
 
2018-02-20 03:16:16 PM  
maybe do a better free kick this time Chelsea
 
2018-02-20 03:18:49 PM  
Quaresma fouls just outside the box and only gets a yellow.  The only difference is it is on the side of the box rather than the font.
 
2018-02-20 03:19:23 PM  
Somehow, Bayern were not offside and they still cannot knock it in.

POST with a big save for Barcelona
 
2018-02-20 03:20:15 PM  
Post denies Willian and Ter Stegen would have been beaten, so close
 
2018-02-20 03:20:25 PM  
Chelsea just had a pena

OFF THE POST, WILLIAM!

34TH min, 0-0

Lewandowski tries setting up the bicycle kick, and he puts it high and hits a defender in the back of the head.
 
2018-02-20 03:23:03 PM  
Lewandowski booked for the high boot on Medel.

Match sounds chippy
 
2018-02-20 03:25:25 PM  
Quaresma now giving the Munich back line fits, and Besiktas corner is low and cleared for a throw in.
 
2018-02-20 03:27:29 PM  
POST #2 for Willian
 
2018-02-20 03:27:34 PM  
Willan.. POST!
 
2018-02-20 03:28:48 PM  
About time, Munich.  Mueller opens the scoring as Adriano kept him onside.
 
2018-02-20 03:29:18 PM  
Chelsea is putting shots on goal, Barca is passing sideways...

When did LvG take over at Barca?

Submarine XO Robben now abroad, and PREPARE FOR DIVE!

Funny because LvG did actually manage Barca and they hated him there.
