A few quick Wednesday Champions League thoughts

  • So Matchday 5 is complete and although not quite as exciting as the night before there were still a few talking points coming out of the Champions League.
  • Watched the BT Goals show again and I’ve come to the conclusion that James Horncastle annoys me with his unnecessary pronounciation of everything. Plus he got some trivia wrong last night….so much for an expert
  • The main one being Manchester United drawing another blank. Again their defence failed to be breached but at home to PSV that isn’t going to be deemed anyway near enough by the United faithful. On a night where the club paid respects to the 10th anniversary to George Best’s passing, it seems quite ironic that the offering on the pitch was quite a drab affair.
  • Manchester City seemed to take one step forward with a win away at Sevilla but then reverted to type with defeat in Turin last night. Qualification is already assured but winning the group now proves to be more difficult. Could this mean another big side in the 2nd Round and failure to advance any further?
  • Real Madrid did their very best Harlem Globetrotters impression last night. After going 4-0 up they then took their foot off the gas to let Shakhtar back into it and gain a large slice of credibility by finishing the game gallant 4-3 losers. Betfair punters across the country were no doubt hammering the “Cash Out” button at 4-3 (me included)
  • The Zlatan homecoming tour was a massive success and PSG strolled to an easy victory and the mercurial Swede got a goal on his return. Although I doubt Malmo could have made it an easier for him. Still everyone went home happy and Zlatan got a standing ovation at the end. Isn’t Football nice sometimes
  • Antoine Griezmann was by far the difference as Atletico Madrid won at home against Galatasaray
  • While coupons were busted by 5pm with Benfica only managing a draw at FC Astana
  • Ex Chelsea Forward Andreas Schurrle put Wolfsburg top of their group with a 2-0 win in Moscow which coupled with Manchester United’s draw now puts the Red Devils in 2nd place and qualification is nowhere near assured yet for Louis Van Gaal’s side
  • And Borussia Moenchengladbach bested Europa League winners Sevilla in an entertaining 6 goal game which put them in the driving seat to take the Europa League place from their group and would leave Unai Emery’s side without a crack of winning the trophy 3 years in a row as it stands.
