Entertaining game with shambolic defending all around.
What happened to Alaba?

Man City couldn't defend against a textbook Vini Jr. run? SMH.... they must have watched rolls of film of it and how other teams thwart it.

Let's hope the 2nd leg will offer better footie.

Walker should be back for the second, they'll be fine.

I don't know why Carlo didn't play Camavinga, Kroos is so done.

Please don't tell me you enjoy those ('Maurinho special', 0-0, 1-0, 0-1) more. :lol: :lol: :lol:
If you did not enjoy that game, then what's the point of a contest?
Hope your team succeeds. Cheers!!!

Casemiro played today ...Ancellotti rested Benz and brought him on as as sub .. Also played Camvinga in the "kroos" role.

The second leg will be sweet. With City also getting Walker back.

As a neutral I enjoyed the game.
As a footie fan, I didn't like the aftertaste of the defensive frailties.
A 4-3 score with good defending would have been ideal. :thumbs:

Real just dey let in goals anyhow.. Alaba and Miltao no be am at all
Den no sabi defend AT ALL!!!!! *shakes head*

Naa Mancity 4 goals all came from Carvajal sleeping - all 4 !! that's some fireable offence. but I must say he saved a sure goal off the line :sneaky:
Him and Alaba na short 1, at least den don comot Alaba...no proper sub for Carva...

Come on now. Alaba was playing with a hamstring injury

This man is tested at the very highest levels of football and proved behind reasonable doubt during his time at Bayern that he is more than capable of defending
I’ve seen him play throughout the season and to me he’s just a decent player esp at CB. Hamstring injury or not his decision making is what can be annoying, like taking the risk to cheat on Jesus in the box, you just don’t take such chances at CB cuz if it doesn’t work it’s a simple tap for the opponent..
I am actually surprised that he is played at CB in a 4 at the back formation. Then again, he has played CM, LB, LWB for Austria. If I were to play him as a CB, it would be as a LCB in a 5 man defence. However I am neither a coach or a manager. I have been pleasantly surprised that Real are winning matches with him in that role. Bayern's loss.
