Did people really think there was a chance?

Madness. They'll batter them tonight, nevermind in the tie.

Frankly, just hoped it'd be interesting. This isn't even that though.

Only team that is gonna stop them is an actual CL quality team. Not Porto, City or Roma.

Problem is is that it's gonna be a one off game now which favours them even more against the big teams.

No offence but this is nonsense about them having an easy draw. City were probably the best team in the competition (heritage or no heritage), that nobody else wanted to draw and they wiped the floor with them.

Just comes off as sour grapes.

No changed the rules a couple of years ago.The only way you cannot play in the Final is if you get a Red in a Semi Final

We've got two things in our favour - Klopp's atrocious record in finals, and Real's ability to spawn any sort of win in this competition, no matter how poor they are, because they just believe it's their competition to win.

They needed to play an atletico Madrid style side. They've played sides who want to attack and to be fair, they have dismissed them with relative ease
Simply simply lovely

nope. not sour at all.

It's as clear as day can be.

Also, City were not "the best team in the competition" either.

On the negative side, a win in this competition sustains and grows their fanbase around the world for the next 20 years. That's how they do it. That's how the mythology builds and is reinforced.

It couldn't be more sickening.

Exactly.

Or, they needed to play someone tough.  ;)

They are really. They're miles clear of Liverpool in the league, so they're a much better side overall. But knockout competitions don't account for that.

Oh my god I've just realised that even if they do score four it only goes to extra time.

That wasn't offside. Should've been a penalty.
