If It's Tuesday...it must be The Champions League!

Hiya, lads - I'll be racing back from a tedious meeting with the Dean this afternoon to catch this afternoon's Champions League Quarter Final second leg action. One of the fixtures - Barcelona v. PSG - is essentially a dead rubber now, with Barca racking up a 3-1 away win in the first leg. But the other one - Bayern v. Porto - could be a thriller. Bayern were caught out in Porto last week, going down 3-1. But keep in mind that they'll only need a 2-0 win at home today, due to that valuable away goal. Join me from 2:45pm EST onward.

Lahm shoots straight at the keeper . two minutes of stoppage time.

Time and time again, Porto have not been able to clear their lines as they have not been able to deal with Bayern's high pressing game.

Barca lead PSG 2-0 and 5-1 on agg. That one was over before kickoff.

The Bayern were a result of basic defensive errors by Porto. Poor marking, getting the ball nicked off them in their own box, clearances straight to Bayern players, etc.

The second half is underway

Bayern attack from the off and Goetze volleys wide off a sliced Porto clearance. More fundamental defensive errors.

Afternoon, mate - I've just gotten back from my overlong, tedious meeting with the Dean and see that Bayern have romped it in the first half, more than making up for last week's hiccup.

3:57 PM

Neymar has scored a brace at the Nou Camp to put Barca 5-1 up on aggregate. So - those two semi-finalists are sorted.

3:58 PM

Martin Atkinson blows for a foul as Goetze is fouled just outside the box.

And Blackburn and Millwall are 0-0 at the moment. Millwall will be desperate for a win that would draw them closer to Rotherham.

Good afternoon. Was it with Dean Martin?

4:01 PM

The free kick was just over . That could have put Bayern up by half a dozen.

You must be pleased as you need a Bayern race to stay in the PPP race.

Porto have lost just about every challenge and are completely out of sync.

A header was just wide from a corner as there was a great camera shot of Pep with a torn pants leg.

4:07 PM

Ricardo is booked for a trip on Bernat and is immediately substituted. That sums up Porto's evening as they should have made the change earlier.

OH!!! Just wide by Jackson Martinez . He controlled a long ball with his thigh then went on a solo run before shooting inches wide. Another goal will make matters rather interesting

Just wide by Lewandowski as he is on a hat-trick and aimed to restore Bayern's three goal advantage on agg.

4:22 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final roll of the dice from Pep is a Brazi swap as Dante is on for Thiago as we enter stoppage time. Three minutes

4:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

About a minute before that , Porto's manager conspired to get himself sent off a s Porto exit the tournament in disgraceful fashion. He told off the fourth official and the Martin Atkinson immediately waived him off.
