    I think Ajax was a little too aggressive, too soon. Can’t open yourself up on the counter to a team as good as Bayern for 90 minutes. Especially with Gnabry on a wing. Tagliafico should’ve stayed deeper all match and focused the build up down the right and through the middle.

    I like the idea of Tadic centrally since any Ajax player is going to get destroyed physically against Boateng and Sule. And the build up play has worked because of his technical ability.

    I think the seven non-legitimate shouts that they made for a PK hurt the chances of getting the legitimate one on de Ligt on the corner.

    This Bayern back line isn’t particularly good on the ball so they should focus more on the high press, which created their best chances in the first half.

    Best 45' I can remember watching.

    Insane swings, two straight reds, five goals... Disappointed Ajax had a chance and couldn't close it out but god damn that was entertaining.

    Pots for Monday’s draw:

    Pot 1:

    Barcelona
    Bayern
    Dortmund
    Juventus
    Manchester City
    Paris
    Porto
    Real Madrid

    Pot 2:

    Ajax
    Atletico
    Liverpool
    Lyon
    Manchester United
    Roma
    Schalke
    Tottenham

    Poor Schalke, they’re going to get one of Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester City, Paris or Real Madrid.

    The Super League is already happening. 14 of the teams are from the big five leagues and the other two are from the two biggest leagues outside the big five historically and have 6 European Cup/Champions League titles between them.

    This Arsenal/Qarabag game strikes me as largely pointless. Neither team really look like they want to be there. Qarabag have all 11 not only inside their own half but all seemingly within 20 yards of the box.

    Vidal and Alexis are Chile's two best players of all time and led them to multiple Copa Americas and good showings in World Cups, and now they are just both memes, one because of salary, one because of his vices

    Fuck, I think Atletico would've been the best. Cholo could've had Pulisic be our Jermaine Jones random yellow card per match replacement in no time.

    To be fair, they beat them 5-0 last month. Also the lineup yesterday was very much a second-string one.
