I’m looking forward to a few years’ time, with the pandemic hopefully a distant memory, when people see Bayern 8-2 Barcelona in the 2020 CL quarter-finals and assume it was an aggregate score

Hans-Dieter Flick has given birth to a monster that keeps winning. The last time they lost was a Bundesliga game in 2019. Deserves all the credit If they meet ManCity in the semifinal,that would be the real test. Pep against Flick will be of epic proportions #Bayern #BarcaBayern
Thomas Muller and Jerome Boateng have played in both a 7-1 win against Brazil and an 8-2 win against Barcelona.

Lewandowski is peaking at the age of 31 and playing the best season of his life. 14G & 5A so far in the UCL and inching closer to UCL goal record. It's unfortunate that Ballon d'Or was cancelled. Lewa would easily make top 3. #BayernBarca #BarcaBayern
There was a time when many laughed at Mourinho when he was interested in an ageing Perišić. Perišić's importance at Bayern is evident even if he doesn't start often, and this is what José wanted to capitalise on. #BarcaBayern twitter.com/ChampionsLeagu…
Bayern don't need 2 legs this time. Seems like they're here to score 7 in a single match. What a game of football. #BarcaBayern
Although Bayern are clearly better than Barca, this is why Barca cannot be written off. The one leg tie gives an element of unpredictability. Without the cushion of the 2nd leg, everyone will just be pushing the envelope of footballing creativity That...and Messi. #BarcaBayern twitter.com/analyst_footy/…
Paris Saint-Germain (1 previous CL semi) v RB Leipzig (none) will be the least experienced semi-finalists since Arsenal v Villarreal in 2006 (both clubs in their first CL semi-finals).

Atletico's front two had been almost invisible for the most part. #Upamecano was the best player tonight. Can't believe that he'll turn only 22 this October. He has the head of a seasoned CB. Bigger clubs will be watching him. #RBLATM
RB Leipzig is a 11 year old club, with a manager who is 33 and they're in the UCL semifinal for the first time in their short history. #RBLATM
Before this season, Diego Simeone had guided #Atletico to 2 Finals, 1 Semifinal and 1 Quarterfinal in UCL as manager. He lost to Real Madrid on each occasion. This was Simeone's 2nd QF with Atletico in the UCL and they were knocked out by RB Leipzig. #RBLAtleti
This is Valencia's owner, Peter Lim's daughter on her Instagram story. The more I read about they've been doing to prestigious club like Valencia, the more it makes me mad & sad. My solidarity goes out to all Los Murcelagos faithful. @pacopolitENG #LimGoHome #PeterLimGoHome

2020 is getting weirder. If this really goes through, this would be one of the biggest football transfer news in decades. Messi & Ronaldo in the same team would be interesting. But on the downside, imagine Messi Vs Ronaldo guys on Twitter. twitter.com/goal/status/12…
If Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting plays in the next round, it will mean the relegated Stoke squad of 2017-18 had players who played in the 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2019 & 2020 Champions League semi-finals.

*Pasalic goal (Zapata assist)
#Atalanta having been brilliant at making the most of the chances. PSG dominated the possession (61.5%) until the Zapata goal with 0 shots on target. Atalanta on the other hand are not only beautiful but had 4 shots on target with limited possession. Efficient. #AtalantaPSG

Looking back at the 11/12 La Liga season, 121 feels bigger now. The last decade has seen Barca, City, Bayern, CFC, LFC & PSG score 100+, but not many have come close to 121. RM & Barca have crossed the 100+ mark 6 times together in the last decade but 121 remains untouched.
Fickle Chelsea fans will miss Willian's work rate when everyone else starts pulling hamstrings. At 32, he could still run for 90 minutes. His work rate was valued more than anything else which is why he was at SB for 7 years. #Willian twitter.com/willianborges8…

#StadedeReims & France captain Robert Jonquet was a defender way ahead of his time, but fate played a cruel role in leaving him off the legends' list. @All_Blue_Daze recalls the time when #Jonquet almost conquered Europe & the world. #Reims footyanalyst.com/how-cruel-fate…

There's a very good chance that Bayern go all the way. Flick has done a splendid job at Munich. #BAYCHE Flick has lost just 2 games in Bundesliga since his appointment & lost 0 games in the #UCL He's now become the 3rd manager in UCL history to win his first 5 games in charge
Chelsea's UCL away record is appalling. Lampard has a huge task at hand. #CFC haven't won their last 8 away games in #UCL knockout stages. Their last away win was 1-0 win at Benfica in 2012. #BAYCHE
Juventus is trying to pull off a Zidane or Guardiola with Pirlo's appointment. #Pirlo #UCL

It never looked like #Sarri was perfect for #Juventus. If Pochettino takes over at Juventus, which seems likely, he would be the first Argentine manager at the club since Luis Carniglia in 1970. Since then, Juve have had only 2 non-Italian managers.
A group that define a generation.

He'll be regretting that suspension after watching this game. #MCIRMA #UCLIsBack twitter.com/goal/status/12…
Pep has eased Foden into the first team, gradually prepping him for the future since 2017. Initially only used as a sub, he's made 28 appearances in league and UCL this season. When Pep leaves, ManCity would have a well shaped permanent name in the starting 11. #MCIRMA #UCLIsBack
In a time when the community role of football clubs is diminishing & they're being run purely from a business standpoint, Abramovich has been one of the owners who hasn't shied away from the responsibility. Opened his hotel for NHS, no clubs workers fired, and now this. #CFC twitter.com/BrentlinRola/s…
One would agree that Casillas deserved a better farewell when leaving Real Madrid. But he should be remembered for this moment, not how he exited Madrid. #Grac1as #Casillas
A disconnect from first team, a toxic environment & lack of cohesion were just some deep lying issues that were left to fester for years at #LFC Academy. Addressing those have bridged the gap. @paul_grech writes about LFC & the resurgence of its academy. footyanalyst.com/after-the-lows…

Duván Zapata (18), Josip Ilicic (15) & Luis Muriel (18) had never scored 15+ goals in a Serie A season before joining #Atalanta This season, they've crossed that mark together - first time a Serie A club has had 3 players from the same side do it in a league season since 1952.
Serie A games being played without any fake background crowd noise is satisfying. The fake crowd noise are like the obnoxious laughter track being played after each joke in an average sitcom.
Frank Lampard has done alright in his 1st season despite losing #FACupFinal ✅ Used 5 teenagers, Chelsea's joint most in a season (09-10,15-16) ✅ Beautiful brand of football ✅ Finished 4th & qualified for UCL ✅ League double over Mourinho All that with no transfers
#FACupFinal trophy would be a huge confidence boost for Arteta going into the second season. Can't say Arsenal failed in this season after that game.
Really, why even bother with VAR? What really is the point when Martinez can do this and get away with it?

We just witnessed 2 different shades on Chelsea in the first half. Instead of waiting until 80 minutes, Lampard needs to bring Kante on while there's still time. He'll provide the much needed stability in mid. #FACupFinal
When you see Azpi leaving after the injury, you realise how good (and fit) Terry was. Played almost every single minute of the season for Chelsea until he was 36, played a whole season with a broken toe and subbed only once in his career. Chelsea needs another Terry. #FACupFinal
Pulisic had huge shoes to fill on the wings and he has stepped up. Chelsea have transitioned from Hazard to Pulisic so easily. Took him 5 minutes. #FACupFinal #CFC #Pulisic
On this day in 2009, Sir Bobby Robson passed away. He's directly or indirectly influenced & shaped so many legendary managers that we have today. Here's a short clip of Mourinho speaking about Sir Bobby taken from 'Bobby Robson - More than a manager'.
