Liverpool 2/1 Barca 6/4, that’s an overwhelming difference tbf
I wouldn't take that 2/1 against Liverpool,  I'm sure better odds can be obtained.

I think so.it did slightly touch arm but no intent and didn’t alter flight of ball or anything.

Having a debate on WhatsApp about it. Really could have went either way.

Just got home looks like i missed a classic in the Etihad. Well done to Spurs. City for all their quality on and off the field they continue to flatter to deceive in Europe.

Best price was 5/2 in fairness

That var review at the end was the party pooper of the century.
I loved the sadistic factor.

Reckon the Spurs goal should have stood?  As Rio said, it definitely hit his arm first.  Lineker needs his eyes tested.

I thought it was handball but I think the bigger issue is the problem the goal highlights with VAR. The VAR ref has watched that and must have thought it was handball and a clear and obvious error otherwise he simply tells the on pitch ref to get on with the game. The on field ref on the other hand clearly thought it wasn’t handball.  So had the two refs been swapped the goal wouldn’t even have been referred down. So in no way is the consistency of decision making improved by the use of VAR.

Relatedly I would also have a problem with the VAR on the City goal if they were using the images BT Sport provided.  The camera angle wasn’t in line and no account seemed to be taken of that when drawing the line across the pitch.  Spurs v Chelsea in the League Cup this year highlighted this perfectly. SKY cameras had been calibrated to take account of the fact they weren’t in line and were able to adjust lines accordingly. From those lines it was clear to see Kane was onside for his goal. The camera Chelsea had installed for the game had not be so calibrated and on that Kane looked offside. Chelsea then tried to show the photographs taken from their camera to change the officials mind. I’m addittion the line drawn on the BT Sport image ignore the Spurs defenders elbow. When all that is taken into account I wouldn’t be happy suggesting with any degree of certainty that Aguero was in fact offside. That said the officials may have had other cameras so this may all be moot.

It’s funny when a goal is ruled out, after a player has gone mental celebrating.

Likewise, it’s bizarre seeing players celebrate after maybe a two minute wait on whether the goal will stand.

Want to see another big Spurs performance in the league. I think Aguero was marginally offside but very close and obviously very harsh on City.

Second season in a row in the CL they've been denied a key goal by a very marginal offside call.
Llorente's goal was more a clearcut infringement than MU's peno at PSG.

The fact that it slightly brushed Llorente’s arm doesn’t make it handball. Completely different to the PSG and Rose incidents.

Anyone who thinks the Llorente goal shouldn’t have stood should go join Rio in the stupid corner.

I thought the ball came off the hip, goal was correct decision. Other pictures show the ball brushing Llorente’s arm, if so then Rio is  correct.

"As the green shorts leapt and danced it felt like the most fittingly shapeless of winning goals; decisive moment in a competition that refuses to bend to Guardiola’s will but continues to remain thrillingly out of reach. "
