You would feel sorry for him until you remember that he's one of the sneakiest about for diving.

Bayern lost to third-tier FC Saarbr├╝cken in the The DFB-Pokal (German Cup) in November. I still think they could take the Bundesliga. Big clubs can deal with the pressure of squeeky bum time as the games get bigger and their squad comes into effect.
They have a moderate draw of Lazio in the Champions league.

Some story - Ivory Coast. Chaotic early on, lifted the title.

Man City v Copenhagen on RTE 2. Who wants to watch that?

There was only one other option?

The champions league which was once a great competition has lost its appeal over last few years with traditional powers like Barcalona not being what once where and the Italian league dropping in standard.competition will only get worse with the new format coming.

That penalty for Lazio and red card for Upemecano of Bayern has changed things. It was a stupid rash tackle from Upemecano.

Bayern are struggling now in a game they had the upper hand in.

Against the run of play too.

It was odd watching that - the commentators didn't cop on at all a penalty had been given and then were shocked when a red card was given as they barely even seemed sure play had been stopped.

Very little urgency in that Bayern team. Kane gave it away a lot.

I agree with what your saying but I actually fancy Inter to lift big ears this year.

Inter and Roma both made the champions league and europa league finals last year? This year two of the premier league teams have been an embarrassment in the competition.

The Europa league is a significant downgrade on the Champions League.  Inter beat benfica, porto, milan in the knockouts, so had a pretty hand run to the final compared to City who beat leipzig, bayern and madrid.
