It would be amusing if Real/United turned out to be a bore fest, it's being built up so much that it's almost bound to fall short of expectations.

The press are creaming themselves over this...its borderline nauseating...I hate Ronaldo but I hope he tears his old club a new ar*ehole tonight...

And Fergie spontaneously combusts on the touchline...

Were it not for another Ovreboesque performance from a UEFA official...

I don't think it was "Ovreboesque". Not even close. Celtic made silly mistakes and Juventus punished them for it. The scoreline flattered Juventus, but Celtic can only blame themselves.

I thought Celtic played well last night, made Juve look average for large spells but it should be noted Juve don't travel well in the UK and played a perfect first leg away from home.

The Nigerian centre half was brutal and cost 2 goals, no idea why he started when he was basically just off a long haul flight after the ACON.

I loved how the stadium just went silent 3 minutes in lol.

United I reckon will get a draw tonight, hope they get battered though.

^ I think he meant to win the competition.

 

 

Ah, quite right. I don't think they have what it takes. The scoreline flattered them and Celtic weren't even very good. They tried, though...

 

Indeed, I did mean the whole thing, sorry if not clear.

 

 

Maybe not the best of performances last night but efficient and more or less wrapped up the tie already.

 

Might just have that little bit of luck needed to get through, with the exception of Barca I don't think any teams look significantly stronger than them.

One of the best midfields in Europe, good defenders (bar perhaps Bonucci) but quite an awful strikeforce. Vucinic is best as a second striker or winger but their other strikers simply aren't up to scratch. I doubt they will get too far but certainly a team to look out for.

 

I'm backing Bayern to go the distance again, they look even better than last year.

What I'd love to happen in this year's CL ..

 

Celtic to come back to level the score on aggregate .. only to concede a phantom pen in the last minute. Neil Lennon's face. Pure joy.

 

Bayern to absolutely hammer Arsenal.

 

Real Madrid to beat Utd courtesy of a pen won by a Ronaldo dive, Fergie to go apoplectic afterwards, after years of telling us he didn't dive while he was at Utd.

 

Barcelona to go down to an iffy decision. Puyol, Alves, Busquets and Mascherano all get sent off for protesting. 

 

Dortmund to win it.

Perhaps not Ovreboesque (my own bias was showing through with a wee bit with that comment :biggrin: ) but his handling of Lichtsteiner was comical.

 

I agree that Celtic only have themselves to blame in that they played right into Juve's hands, the gung-ho approach was a bit naive, necessitated somewhat by the early opener, granted, but naive all the same.

 

Juve were always going to be content to sit back and see how things panned out, they're built perfectly for that sort of game plan.

 

Celtic lack quality in the final third, Hooper is a decent striker but he was never going to get the better of the likes of Barzagli or Bonnuci.

 

The decision to start Ambrose was farcical, frankly. Mulgrew should have started at centre half alongside Wilson, with Ledley starting in midfield.
