      That is a brilliant draw for the CL. Would have preferred the two Madrids to swap but its still very intriguing.

      Dortmund vs Monaco - How many goals will you predict? That will be great for the neutrals.

      I think for Leicester its not a good draw for them, as they will come up against a negative team who don't concede many opportunities and goals. I would have fancied them against Monaco.

      Is right....

      http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/liverpools-nightmare-scenario-fourth-not-12754693

      So if Mancs win Europa, and LC were somehow able to luck their way to winning the CL, then the 4th place team would be screwed out of a spot.
      Wow 😳 Intersting stat. I never realised that. 99% would say Leicester couldn't of won the Premiership pre season, unless you were a Leicester fan.  ;D 99.9%  will also say Leicester can't win Champions League. Interesting few weeks ahead  :D

      My money will be Atletico, really can't see them getting past them. Atletico have been consistently competing with Madrid and Barca for a few years now and are becoming familiar with reaching the latter stages of the Champions League

      There has apparantly been an explosion near the Dortmund team bus near the hotel. It shattered glass and Marc Batra was taken to hospital - its a developing story, and I dont know if its gonna impact the match tonight vs Monaco

      Our thoughts with Dortmund. An explosion ocurred near their bus, Bartra is injured. YNWA and God may keep them all safe.

      Apparently, it's nothing serious for Bartra.

      And Match is not cancelled sorry, undecided and will be announced in the next 10 mins.

      Juve 3-0 up.

      Hopefully this time Barca won't get a nice helping hand from the referee and shambolic opposition team mentality. Greatest comeback my f**king arse.

      Whilst Barca have the best attack in the world. Wouldn't write off a team that has an attack consisting of Suarez, Messi and Neymar.

      Barcelona have a mountain to climb and not for the first time this season. I think they can do it though! Barcelona can win a game of football against anybody 5-0 on the right day, look what happened against PSG. As for Dortmund, they have some of the best fans in the world. Helping out the stranded Monaco fans by giving them a place to stay! We already knew Dortmund had good fans but it seems like they have great fans.

      Juve are no bottlers like PSG.

      Pretty obvious how to play against Barca, just press their ageing players and they can't cope.

      Massive rebuilding job too be done at Barca, good luck to which ever mug decides to take the job with their fan base.

      I think you are right, Suarez is an example of that, 30 now and cost them 75m a few seasons ago. Serves Barcelona right for pinching established players instead of developing younger players. Other notable aging players, Messi 29, Rakitić 29, Turan 30, Pique 30, Mascherano 32, Mathieu 33.

      Yeah, serves them right for buying players in their peak and wanting to win trophies. And as for developing young players, I believe they  are one of, if not the best at producing/developing youngsters out of the big clubs in Europe?

      Possible, but no likely.

      I think Barca will get knock out in this round.

      Good call, however I think the problem Barca have is they rely totally on scoring goals, sod the defence! It seems to be a growing trend in football.

      The problem Barca have is the same problem we have, once we come up against a team who can stifle the attack, we are struggling to find answers.
