Hopefully the rest of the CL campaing isn't so badly refereed.
Following Real win won by referees.And this very average player called Ronaldo who wouldn`t score one third of his goals in another country than Spain.
@aisha You do realize that Ronaldo has the joint record for the most goals scored in a single season in the Premier League right? A feat he accomplished at only 23 years of age.This invalidates your argument that he could only score so many goals in Spain. Ronaldo is arguably the greatest scorer the game has ever seen so let's not be rash here. He didn't just accidentally score 100 CL goals either. He's the only person to score more than 14 goals in a CL campaign... he did so twice! Take your bitterness somewhere else.
@NICCS her comments did not age well. Messi also has 1 league goal in a weak league with psg
Marcelo was on a different dimension. Superb defending/attacking transition. I thought he did the clearance twice?
Also CR7 is old, but gold.
Roben is a world class diver! His theatricals could land him Hollywood roles! Yes referee was not good but Bayern were the second best team in both legs! They had two away goals and had scored neither in open play! I'm not a Real fan but you have to be able to score at this stage to go further!
@albgunn Real go through only because of ref. ONLY!
the should have ended in the 47. vidal hard foul on casemiro than on any other game it would and should have been his 2nd yellow. bayern w 10 and the oldest team in the history of champions would have been done.
Kasai should have been banned from football long ago before this game. I doubt that kind of people can be allowed to work on the regional games too
@tar88s DENIZ AYTEKIN !!!
@Ronaldo7 doesn`t matter, this one has to be kicked out of football too
Check out the video on ESPN channel called "FC crew rips Real-Bayern referee". They aren't Barca fans you know. I've same thoughts about the match.
@Drifter no they arent. They are pundits and presenters. They have to attract viewers. You cant attract viewer by discussing the whole truth. You should say things that people want to hear. Controversial things. You should build a villain and a hero. You cant say mistakes went both ways. People dont like that. It is boring.
I've never seen so many dodgy refereeing decisions in a champions league competition as I have this season. No matter who your team is, if you reached the knockout, you likely have had at least one shocking decision go for AND against you. Mine, Arsenal, has- in the same tie. Lol. I think over the 2 games, Madrid edged it so I'm not going to argue with the result but I just think it's a shame how fans are (rightfully) debating the officiating calls after every single game. Everybody reading this knows that the likelihood of a diabolical decision being made in both of tomorrow night's games is high and it takes away from what should be a spectacle of football. I'm sure we can agree football is a difficult game to referee, but when there are 5 actively participating officials per game, the probability of getting the correct decision should increase. If anything, it has decreased.
Robben dived for the penalty, Lewa was offside when he chested down for Muller before Ramos OG...Casemiro penalty denied...poor decisions for both teams but because Barca fans are dissapointed...we bought the ref
Down vote as much as you want. If you don't get help from the ref like you did against psg, you may as well forget about tomorrow as juve clearly taught you a footballing lesson in the first leg
@footballover Every time someone bring up the facts which are against the team you like you call them Barca fans. That's sad. Check out the video on ESPN channel called "FC crew rips Real-Bayern referee". Are they Barca fans too? You're delusional.
@Drifter I have mentioned the incidents that could go against Bayern and I didn't say only Madrid was victim of poor refereeing but biased fans are only talking about the decisions they wanted to go their way
you all want to complain about how bad the ref was, well on ramos own goal, robert was offside, and since he tried to play the ball. that should have never been a goal. what a terrible ref.
@edemex He wasn't because he didn't took part in the action.
@Drifter Do you actually think that everyone is so stupid to not see your blatant lie? He took major part in action and you just excluded yourself from discussion with your blindness
@Drifter yes he did, when you dont take part of the play, you have to stand still, he clearly goes for it.. look vidal was called for 6 foul, the 1st was a yellow. how many fouls can a player be allowed before he is shown a card. vidal had 5, some where harder. the guy deserve to be thrown on, just because other refs allow him to hit more than what he did today doesnt make the 2nd yellow a bad one, the ref actually made a mistake by not showing the 2nd earlier.
Real Madrid scored 6 goals over the two legs. Bayern has a total of 5 shots on target. Yes, they had some bad luck with the ref, but their second goal was offside, and Vidal should already have been sent off long before that undeserved 2nd yellow card. Second Ronaldo goal was offside, third is discutable. This wasn't the right way for Real to go through, but they deserved this most.
btw i feel wrong for bayern.. what a shame, its such a waste of talent that they pick guardiola and now carlo to let it all go to waste. really, carlo is a terrible coach. all he has done is come in and clean up the mess mou has left but the team was ultimately a well built mou team that is given more freedom and found success, only to have it all blow up in carlos face. it happen in chelsea and then in madrid, next year you will see. carlo is all about putting the best 11, no actual tactical, just let the players play and do what they know how to do. the bench didnt see much playing time like morata or casemiro when he was in madrid. they have turn into great players. costa, coman, renato are great players that just sit in the bench even when bayern faces the worse team in the league. and then you wonder why they are tired in a big game like tonight.
Why there is only one clearance of the line for Marcelo ? He did it twice
@maxifoot And the only one who has done that twice in ONE match as far as I know
Refeering was bad, but Real would still, most likely, went through
@Zootball Casemiro should have been sent off, no debate. U really think Real would have went through with 10 men? No.
@Calcio_Guy by that logic tho, Vidal should have been sent off in the first half, and Hummels in the second. So let's try to not be reductionistic too much here.
Marcelo is the best side back of the decade so far
Yes, there were questionable calls made that took away from the great fixture this was, however, things aren't nearly as one-sided as they seemed. Let's revisit the first game. The penalty that Bayern was awarded that Vidal missed, wasn't a penalty. Moving along to this game. Vidal should have been sent off twice before that tackle that that got him sent off. Granted, the challenge that he got sent off for wasn't a foul. On to the offside goals, one was more apparent than the other. The ref made terrible calls then, especially for the second one. Overall Bayern will leave feeling a bit wrong done as they should, but Madrid did deserve the win, they created more chances and were often times the better team.
@NICCS Either team could have gone through and Real making it to the semi finals is ok. The main problem is how the referee heavily influenced the scoreline.
Remember this is a predictions website and there are people who bet money on these matches. Imagine how frustating it is to have your prediction gone awry because of these mistakes.
@NICCS The decisions favoured Madrid on a scale of 5:1. That isn't normal. To try and make seem like these decisions cancelled out themselves is disingenuous.
@excalibur break down that count for me, will you?
1. Not giving Vidal red card in the first half - 0:1
2. Undeserved penalty against RM - 0:2.
3. Casemiro avoiding Red card - 1:2.
4. Hummels twice avoided red card after tactical fouls after he's been awarded yellow - 1:3
5. Ramos' OG scored after active Lewa's offside - 1:4
6. Ronaldo's 2 offside goals (even tho the second one is disputable) - 3:4.
Not even counting the penalty awarded against RM in the first leg, which was totally ridiculous.
Lewandowski clearly onside, Linesmann standing right there next to Marcelo who he sees in playing Lewa onside but chooses to raise his flag, denying a clear goal scoring opportunity. UEFA Champions league "logic".
@excalibur Yeah, right. And when he's actually offside, the referee misses it as well, after which panicked Ramos scores own goal. So there.
Javi Martinez made 2 or 3 soft fouls all game and got ruthlessly punished by the ref in the reverse tie. Casemiro can make dozens of fouls and even dive for a penalty and is allowed to complete 120 mins of action. UEFA Champions league "logic".
Where's 'La_Doudecima' now? haha
the definition of greatness is.. to have your haters spend countless amount of time following your team.. That is why real madrid has so many haters, here, on the internet, in the world.. many call that jealousy! good night haters and hala madrid fans :-)
@edemex But when you lose against Barca or Atletico you're the first to attack, am I right? :)
@Drifter if you must know. i dont remember the last time i watch a barcelona game where they didnt play real madrid. so there
Well a lot of people are crying here for thing's that won't change. When Barca won 6-1 against psg everyone adored their will to win even though there were moments of controversy too. Some of you talk of Ronaldo's offside goal as if Bayern were leading 4-0 !
Even if the goal was disallowed we're all sure Real would have scored the winner anyway.
@Mahdi Real fans always think that everyone who's is claiming something against them is a Barca fan (even if you bring up facts) :D LMAO! Don't be ridiculous pal. When PSG lost l also had pretention but today's match is in another level. Madrid was closed at certain point and couldn't set a counter-attack and those couple of faulty decvisions were too heavy for BM. Many people associated with football claim that it's a disgrace to football (i.e. Asprillah).
50 shots total. MAD GAME
I must go. A highly unsatisfactory outcome, but Ronaldo was brilliant over the two legs regardless. See you all tomorrow for the two games.
Just watched highlights of the Leicester game and athletic didn't really have 50:50 decisions to their way. I'd hesitate before speculating about manipulation and throwing yourself head first into the tin foil hat brigade, claiming UEFA love Spanish teams.
@alric8 Did u see the first leg? Their only goal was a penalty that WASN'T a penalty, it wasn't in the box. and that is the reason they went through to the next round.... but it isn't Spanish teams, it's just Real and Barca.
@alric8 athletic?? athletic bilbao is a different team. its atletico.
Disgrace after disgrace.The effect of policy "Real/Barcelona must win" .Sometimes I really wonder that people still want to play and want to watch football in Spain
@aisha As a neutral I have to hope that Juventus can knock out Barcelona and then win the competition. It won't be satisfactory if a Spanish team wins this year's Champions League after how much help their teams have had from the officials.
@Yes Unfortunately I`m almost sure that tomorrow game will be rich in so called miracles: :off-sides goals visible even on TV or from the stands, penalties after touching the air surrounding Barcelona player, or giving red cards to key Juventus players.Or giving additional minutes to wait for decisive Barcelona goal...You know, solution how to win will be always found
i called it.. real was going to score because they always do. hummels and boateng were hurt and played at 60 to 85%, after watching the game i think it was closer to 60%, xabi and lahm are old and tired, you can all thank carlo for not knowing how to use backups in games that didnt matter like all in the league the last month. and lastly, carlo got outcoach by zidane, carlo should have know the type of player vidal was, after the first yellow i had a feeling he was going to be send off. and the fox deportes commentator mention it at list 5 times. sliding tackles always look worse then they are, if you look at it in slow motion of course you can tell it wasnt even a foul but in real life it look worse. after they got down to 10 the game was over.
Pretty sure ronaldos second goal was onside, look when the ball actually leaves the crossers foot
@hammers He's offside on the 2nd goal for sure. He's offside on the 3rd goal too if you pause it as the ball is kicked (not as clear, but parts of his body he can play the ball with are offside)
@Yes hands doesnt count in offsides according to the rulebook
@Yes attackers get benefit of the doubt
Casemiro should have seen then 2nd yellow for like 6 times for making faults after faults, doing a penalty, simulating a penalty when attacking....Zidane didn't even remove him lol. When the score was 0-1 it could have been 0-2 in that long pass, Lewandowski wasn't off-side and was in great position. Vidal shouldn't have seen red card. Ronaldo in the 3rd goal was offside. The truth have been spoken, you can dislike my comment now if it makes you happy, like commenting this made me less angry.
@hellreaper Dude, look at the number of fouls. I don't disagree that Casemiro should have seen a red, BUT. With that logic, Vidal would have to be sent off in the first half already, and Hummels would see a definite red as well. Maybe Robben, too.
it was 7-22 on fouls. So let's grow up a bit.
@nlas "and Hummels would see a definite red as well. Maybe Robben, too? - what? After what? When? Bring up the facts.
@Drifter Robben was bitching to the referees like 5 times in a very aggressive way, but seen only 1 card. Casemiro got a yellow for bitching as well.
Hummels was awarded yellow and after that committed 2 tactical fouls, which are usually yellow. Again, it was 7-22 on fouls, and 1-5 on yellows. Come on.
@hellreaper CR7 scored two goals from offsides. Just seen the in-depth analysis.
Wow, Munchen left a lot of health, spirit and skill on the pitch. I can cope with any sort of defeat but let's be frank here - Bayern was robbed, simple as that. No hate or being a sour loser from me. Vidal did get a second yellow but Casemiro didn't get a second yellow card earlier. He should be out of the pitch for: showing referee to give a yellow card to Robben (while he fouled him in the box), then for attacking Robben in the knee (awful foul) and finally for making simulation himself. And then there are two goals from Real from offsides...and then there's a situation when Lewy wasn't on offiside and had 1 on 1. Yeah, CR7 wasn't on one offside there but it wasn't a "100% situation". I always try to be objective but if this is how football will look in future then I'm gonna change my interest. Same thing was with Barca against PSG. Imagine how the players feel now - you work for the whole year for that moment and you're robbed in such way. That's a total disgrace for that sport.
@Drifter Typical RM fanatics - they can't give a counter-argument, just give a thumb down the comment :D Buahaha... Come on, take a part in discussion - if you dare to stand the facts.
@Drifter OK, two goals were from offsides. Just seen the in-depth analysis. Ronaldo were ahead of the ball when Marcelo passed to him. Where are you RM fans? Can't cope with facts?
@Drifter Real* ;)
@Drifter Sorry, one goal for Reala was from offside.
@Drifter Honestly Bayern Munich in my opinion are the strongest team in Europe right now. They just totally outplayed Madrid in their own backyard, playing some beautiful attacking football of the highest class. That is before the ref decided the game in favour of the other team. Really, this performance has given me a new found soft spot for Munich. Nothing but respect to them and their players, coaches and fans must be incredibly angry right now.
@excalibur Totally outplayed Real Madrid in their own backyard? Why don't you use sensible arguments instead of lying? At no stage over the two legs were Real Madrid out played. Not even for a ten minute period of either match and definitely not in this game. The game was even for a lot of the match 11 vs 11 and for small periods Real Madrid were on top in the game. There is no point lying if you are upset. Debate like an adult.
@Yes Munich were much the better team before the laughable red card to Vidal. Munich dominated Madrid especially in the 2nd half before the red. Madrid were camping in their own half and praying for flimsy counter attacks while Munich were playing like a big club. Madrid only came to play when it was vs 10 men. Madrid played like a small club.
Strange circumstances in both games. The referee could have or have had major influences in both games. Casemiro and Vidal should have been sent off in the second half. Both were reckless. Best game I've ever seen from Marcelo. Real have problems in killing off games. They wasted countless opportunities in both games.
@CirdomAkul How can it be strange when it happens every year? UEFA and their cronies are laughing in our faces as they continue to rig their competition as they please
@excalibur 2 penalties for Bayern. Both penalties could have been ignored by the officials but they called it. Don't be ridiculous.
@CirdomAkul The first penalty in first game wasn't there. Today's penalty was rightfully called though as Robben was closer to the ball and Casemiro stepped on his foot. You're the one who's ridiculous pal.
@Drifter Same thing happened with Boateng blocking Casemiro but the Ref didn't call it. Overall, I don't think Bayern deserved to go through. Real Madrid had the most and best chances by far.
@CirdomAkul It looks like both Orsato and Kassai had their agenda.
Ronaldo is offside on his 2nd and 3rd goals I think. 3rd is very close and I can understand not being given, 2nd is clear offside. Biggest decision is the Vidal second yellow, as it wasn't going to be possible stopping Madrid scoring a 2nd goal despite the offsides.
@Yes the 3rd goal was definitely not an offside, as Marcelo didn't pass while he was offside. You could argue, theoretically, that he did gain advantage by being in that position, but as long as you don't restrict a goalie it's fine.
Ronaldo got 9.7 rating??? Not 10?
This is almost funny, but mostly not.
Uefa and spanish teams, better love story than twilight
@KlaasJanHuntelaar That was a good one :)
The amount of talent on the real madrid squad is frightening.mark my words,real madrid will win the champions league
very good match completely ruined by the officials. Vidal gets sent off for winning the ball, Ronaldo scores 2 offside goals Makes be embarrassed to be a football fan when you see major matches decided by incorrect decisions.
@Nico1 The third was tight, and didn't really matter. The second was a complete robbery. Officiating is disgusting.
It's not even about UEFAlona or UEFAmadrid anymore. Something is really fishy about UEFA and their premier competition. This sort of decisions are just to bad to not be viewed with serious suspision.
Ronaldo is a great player no matter what happened tonight. It has to be acknowledged that over the two legs Ronaldo has looked as good of a player as ever. I find Ronaldo very difficult to like because his personality, attitudes and reactions annoy me. But he has been brilliant and very sharp for Real over both legs and the difference between the sides (if we don't factor officiating into it)
@Yes how can you judge him personally if you never met him?? you dont understand him because you dont have the hunger to be a winner like he does. he does more to help others than you can ever in your entire life.
@edemex But you don't have to do it in such an obvious anoying attitude... There are other great footballers, who also always want to win, that come across much more humble and noble...
@neumi17 there are players who act humble and are hater by their own teammates, the only people that can truly judge are the people close to him. how would you like it if someone just call you a natsi just because you are from germany??
Madrid are already a good team, why do UEFA feel the need to help them to such an insane, blatant level and make a mockery out of their competition? This is incredibly sad and disgusting to watch and will continue until video technology is introduced.
Meanwhile, UEFA and their cronies will continue to manipulate matches to any direction they choose.
@excalibur Let's not forget either that Atletico were in an advantaged position tonight because of a ghost penalty. Both Madrid teams might (might not, I can't prove it and they may well have both gone through regardless) be out if the officiating had been correct. We need video technology so that the result of games is satisfying. Right now officials have too much influence on games. This used to be the game in particular in cricket and tennis of all the worldwide popular sports. Since cricket and tennis introduced video technology everyone is a lot happier. Same for Rugby.
OK that was completely legit.
Kassai's block is worth a 10.0 rating! Hope is plane crashes
I'll only watch football again when video is used to help the referee make decisions.
Vidal should maybe been sent off earlier.
Casemiro should have been sent off as well.
Real's 2nd goal was offside.
Btw, before anyone says I'm crying because Bayern lost. Check my comment when I predicted Ronaldo to score and 2-2 draw earlier.
Anyone that denies that video refereeing is needed is biased.
@felipe9525 completely agree. I'm a Real fan, and tonight's victory is nothing to be proud of. I feel sorry for Bayern, even though Vidal and Robben are totally despicable, morally. The penalty was very dubious at best, Vidal should have been sent off in the first half already, but so should have been Hummels and Casemiro. There were numerous non-existant fouls awarded against Real Madrid in the first half.
The Ronaldo's goal (2nd Real goal) was a clear offside, but Costa made a very strange and unexpected move back from the offside trap, so I can sort of see how the referee missed it. But amount of shoddy decisioning in this game is beyond comprehension.
That was a bit more legitimate... No doubt Ronaldo will credit that goal entirely to him. Marcelo has been brilliant.
I'm pretty sure both these goals were offside lol
@uefalona what is a barcelona fan know about offsides? really
@uefalona No only the first one. The second one Ronaldo is behind the ball which isnt offside
@Lechiffre10 I think the 3rd goal is just offside, but it is very close.
@Lechiffre10 Y'all need to learn the f*** rules why am i being downvoted? The first one is offside, the second when Marcelo passes the ball to Ronaldo, he's BEHIND the ball that doesn't count as offside. Idiots.
@Lechiffre10 He was ahead of the ball. Check out the replays. I've seen in-depth analysis and it's true - two offisdes unfortunately.
@Lechiffre10 Don't start being rude when you need to check the replay. Ronaldo has parts of his body in an offside position when the ball is played on the 3rd goal. It's close , yes. But it's offside.
Give Marcelo an 11 on 10. 110min and the guy splits through the defence
@ImADope Goal was offside, there's no denying it.. And before you say I was expecting a Bayern win. Check my comment much earlier when I predicted 2-2. No way Real played well enough to win by 4-2. It was much more like a draw.
GOOOOOAAAALLLLLLL !!!!! and CR was not going to score.. LOL
I don't like to moan about referees and attribute defeats to them alone, but this is ridiculous. Real Madrid fans have no right to call Barcelona uefalona if they go through like this and don't admit it was pure luck. Video referees needed.
Mind you, just imagine the embarrassment for bayern if they don't go through despite the refereeing advantage!
@alric8 This is the method of Barca or RM fanatics - they will criticise other team for something and then they'll stay quiet if the same thing happens to their favourite team :) Veeery immature indeed.
@alric8 there is a diff between mistake and helping. casemiro's penalty was questionable, fox deportes commentators could not agree if it was or wasnt. the vidal 2nd yellow is was not a foul but he fouls so many times every game and most of the time are card worth cards, when you have lots of fouls you get cards, carlo should have taken him out, fox deportes said it many times that vidal always plays w a double edge sword, after the sending off it was just a matter of time, even if they call it offside they were going to score. bayern was playing w 2 hurt players in hummels and boateng. i said it before the game. they are playing but not 100, after watching i can tell its closer to 60 then the 85 i suggested.
@alric8 As a neutral of the game Casemiro should have been sent off even before the dive for the amount of fouls committed and the situations he fouled in. I think we can appreciate that Ronaldo has looked very sharp and played very well over the two legs and caused Bayern Munich all sorts of problems. But the officiating over both legs has been appalling and tonight the officials have lost the plot. Before I accuse of bias (can't prove it and Bayern did get a penalty they shouldn't have in the first leg) video replays and video refereeing is the most important thing.
@Yes lol I should point out that I don't particularly like Bayern Munich or real Madrid!
@Yes The same could be said about Vidal. He could have easily been sent off before that red card. Regardless, Robben's penalty was him doing what he does best and that's selling the foul to the ref. The officiating was horrible there's no doubts but both teams suffered and unfortunately it's a zero sum game.
We need video replays. Video challenges for offside and big moments.
It's hard for Bayern to play 10 men against 12.
One more for UEFA's Hall of Shame!
Say uefalona and progress semi final with offside goal
I predicted it below. Ronaldo.
CRiSTIANO RONALDO RORORORORORO.......!!!!! #GOAT
off side goal... really?
CR7 ! Hala Madrid !
@footballover refree man of the match
@footballover It was an offside goal...But 2-2 is fair enough nevertheless.
@felipe9525 undeserved red card and offside goal , what is fair in this game?
@KlaasJanHuntelaar Hey, i'm not supporting Real. They did have their chances although the goal was indeed lucky.
You can' say that 2-2 is totally undeserved. Bayern should have gone through weren't them down to 10 man twice.
@All, I agree the goal was a bit lucky one but we are two ahead now, so it doesn't matter
@footballover It's 10 vs 11. You cannot do an analysis of a game like this.
@Yes Seriously, it's almost impossible to go through a knockout match after being down to 10 twice.
Not to mention other things...
that was not a yellow to Vidal...he played the ball first. Awful mistake.
@hughcross Yea well that wasn't a penalty either. I'd be more pissed about the second goal. Ronaldo is clearly offside but ill take it as a madrid fan.
@Lechiffre10 There was a penalty in this game (it was not in the previous one) because Casemiro has stepped on Robben's foot (not a BM fan).
@hughcross ronaldo is offside in the second goal
Robben has such a weird upper body posture. Lopsided as hell
Casemiro should be off the pitch for that dive.
Ramos is a fraud defender
@adddaaaammmmm He's been incredible other than the own goal.
come on bayern. Dam you referee. Let us win this boys.
Marcelo six key pass, six dribbles, clearance off line so far
@Yes false left-back formation lol
Goal line block on stats should be as valuable as a goal to the individual player. Boateng's block off line in first half needs a big rating boost. By the stats it seems he didn't get as big of a boost as he should have for this action.
@Yes He didn't win 10 dribbles though.
Why Ramos have to add that fucking spice to an already intense game...??!
I want Ramos to redeem himself in Extra time and score the Golden header. #VamosMadrid
@rmd007 he wanted to humiliate bayern but there wasn't enough time, so he had to improvise! Good sport this Sergio Ramos, his intellect shines bright tonight!
I think Ronaldo will score in extra time.
lol Im not watching the game..is kimmich really playing sole striker? answer me game watchers
@DeanO Muller is now the stricker
@DeanO No. It's wrong. Kimmich replaced Lewandowski and they haven't changed the formation.
@Yes @yes..no its wrong This is a meme
@DeanO You are a meme.
@Yes we are a meme
the second half u will see the real bayern
@delpiero1100 You say this AFTER the 2nd half ends..... smh
@Calcio_Guy i said that before the second half starts u stupid
@delpiero1100 Make it third
i told u guys .....i always predicts right
Headed goal by ronaldo just like I said earlier
Big games Ramos made the game even more thrilling!
lol what a crazy match
Bottled the 1st half and I'm not too confident in Zidane's substitutions.
whomever wins...im with you till the end of the season,,Madrid coz theyre spanish,,bayern coz theyre the best looking team to win it.. after monaco
Looks like the opposite match of the last one.
Robben, the "Flying Dutchman " :D
Madrid is doing a great job 'til now, Bayern has a lot of talent in the mid and the sides, but they are only trying random crosses, i think they need to get shots out of the box too. And Modric/Kroos doing a nice job helping Carvajal/Marcelo.
Sorry... But how can Navas (zero saves + 31% pass success) have a higher rating at HT than Neuer (2 saves + 73% pass success)???
@BeautifulLoser there are two things that men will never understand: Women and WhoScored rating algorithm
when Douglas Costa comes in he will make the difference mark my words
@delpiero1100 Yes, he made the difference in becoming the worst player on the pitch ! Your predictions useless as ever. But funny therefore... :-)
hey guys the second Bayern will win ..u will see what German teams can make....they never give up ,,, its in their blood
Hummels has already made so many mistakes and has a rating 6,8? Something is not ok with the rating system.
Looks like Ancelotti's boys are more concerned about not conceding than scoring . It's Real who doesn't need to score , they will happily take a goalless draw
@footballover game is open now, finally
What a beautiful game to watch so far!
@MrNemobody Until the referee screw everything up.
bayern has all the pressure and they have boateng playing after being out for so long, hummels and lewandoski are also coming back from injuries, who knows is they are fully fit. i think they are anywhere between 60 to 85 but no way they are 100%. after injuries it takes at list couple games to regain fitness, having couple practices is just not enough.
Carlo is the Don of European cup football. Can't be overlooked. Zidane will be outmatched
Bayern too good guys. 3-1 win here. Maybe after normal time. But doesn't matter. Bayern goes thru mark my words
all real madrid has to do is score 1 and it will force them to have to score 3. keylor is no playing as good as last year but i just dont see them giving up that many. casemiro, nacho and ramos actually make a really good trio in the middle. neuer still has nightmares of ramos and cr, tonight it will be one more.
@edemex i said they were not going to score 3 and i was right. and boy was i right bout neuer nightmares when he faces CR.. he is going to dream about how many goals he keeps giving up to him and only him.
is that the best Bayern can offer?
okay they're going home tonight.
Strong experienced Bayern 11. Madrid still thier same old tired players. This Madrid looks soo lightweight on physical terms, beside Casemiro this guys can't do 70 mins on pitch. If Bayern is 2 goals ahead in 70 mins. They will burry a 3rd within 70-90. And if they're level. They will add. Either way Bayern still have an edge. Sorry Madrid El Classico awaits.
@njamimaranga you talk about old players in madrid. but bayern is much older, xabi, ribery, robben and lahm are all over 33. cr is the oldest for real and he is just 32. c'mon kid, if you have something smart to say it, then speak, if you are just here to hate, no room, already too many haters.
MADRID TEAM (guessing 4-3-3): Navas, Carvajal, Nacho, Ramos, Marcelo, Modric, Casemiro, Kroos, Isco, Benzema, Ronaldo. Could theoretically be a diamond midfield with Casemiro playing as a quasi-sweeper and Isco a #10, but Zidane is a 4-3-3 man for the most part so would guess that is how they'll line up. Corrections welcome.
@SteveHyland on defense its their normal 4.4.2 and on offense modric and isco are going to have alot of freedom to roam
Back Ronaldo to score I am sure he will score 2 or 3 goals.
@RemyLebeu he won't score any. That's Vidals job.
Full strength Bayern. I fancy them to take it to extra time, if not win in regular time. The longer this match goes on, the greater the probability of Bayern going through increases because of the way they play. Chasing the ball for 120 minutes is tiring but Bayern can play the way they do for the same time period. It's amazing their level of physical and mental stamina, Thiago in particular. Anyways, I predicted 2-1 Bayern which will take it to extra time.
BAYERN TEAM (guessing 4-2-3-1): Neuer, Lahm, Boateng, Hummels, Alaba, Alonso, Vidal, Robben, Thiago, Ribery, Lewandowski.
Bayern will take it to extra time 2-1 then win on pens
I think bayern is going to win here, ofc not for sure...In my opinion we are going to see a lot of goals! If Lewandovski is going to play (he was at training so i think so) -- bayern i will win this match. Last time they had quite a bad luck. 2-3 for bayern today.
i have a feeling that bayern can turn the table on real tonight....German clubs never give up easily...remember what Bayern done against juve last year..and we never forget what Dortmund made against malaga that was a miracle...so in my opinion Bayern have the ability and the quality of player to qualify tonight
@delpiero1100 1st of all both of those come backs were at home, in germany. bayern has a spanish curse, since they won the CL, they have been eliminated by spanish team the last 3, atletico, barcelona and real madrid. the streak will continue to 4.
@delpiero1100- Put your house on a Madrid win everybody.
2-2 draw for both the teams! benzema to score
in this match, it seems Bayern will win in 1;3
Real Madrid won't win. Ancelloti > Zidane. Ancelloti tactics and experience in UCL is phenomenal. He's judgment has surpassed newboy Zidane. 100% win ratio in Champions league Quarter finals. And 67% in Semis and Final. He's never lost at this stage in his Career. He has one of the very best squad ATM and although he's away. Madrid isn't that strong as many think of real Madrid it's conceding 2 goals and even 3(Celta, Las Palmas). I don't care the tactics played here am not the coach by the way. But I just trust Carlo Ancelloti super experience and judgment here. He's the most successful UCL manager anyway. He picks a 0-2 or 1-2 win and he's inside anyway. It's either a Bayern win or draw. What about a scoreline of 2-3?
@njamimaranga DO NOT FORGET MILAN-LIVERPOOL FROM 3-0 TO 3-3 TO LOSING AT PENALTIES. ISTANBUL FINAL, ANCELOTTI WAS MILAN'S COACH!
@njamimaranga u r talking as if Ancelloti will play...bro players they do the difference not the coach i was a proffesional player and every single word that coach was telling us before the match when we enter the pitch we forget every single word he told us ..thats the real thing bro..so dont tell me about coaches they only pick the starting lineup ..the players who wins the matches
@delpiero1100 professional football? Haha. Will find you in FT. We'll see who will be laughing best.
@njamimaranga do me a favour and shut up.
@njamimaranga Bayern lost to Real Madrid last week 2-1
@MessiGOAT they lost a penalty and got a red card. The moment they got a red. Everybody knew what was gonna happen
Real win @ 3 - 1. I know ancelotti hopes zidane plays danilo he knows how to manufacture goals
RM 2 BM 2
Real Madrid 1-2 Bayern Munich
If there's any team that could beat us at home its Bayern, so we have to be careful. I really hope Isco gets the start in place of Bale, but I have a feeling it'll be Vasquez.
Madrid 3-0 Bayern then Barca 3-0 juve. The dream final is coming
@LapuIga Barca 3-0 against juve doesn't guarantee them next round, they have to win by 4 goals or win in extra time or penalties
Real Madrid current lead is fairly valuable considering how important away goals are in the Champions League and yet Los Blancos will have to take this game very seriously if they want to play in the Semifinals for the seventh straight year. Prediction : 2-1 for Real
I can see ronaldo getting a headed goal Nuff said
What do you guys think about BTTS + Real ?
@GustavusRex , Real can win but so can Bayern as they need to . I think it's risky to bet on winners market , there should be goals from both sides unless there's a red card at the beginning of the match
Real Madrid - Barcelona next weekend has no effec Real Madrid? Has 3 points ahead Barcelona in the Spanish League and in this game comes a 1-2 advantage, scored 2 goals out, he can't play for a draw? For me 1-1 or 2-2 is the correct score. Or Bayern win/draw.
2-3 I hope ...
Real Madrid to win for sure. 3-1
Bale is ruled out.
From what I've seen from Victor Kassai, he is a kind of referee that tends to award lots of penalties. Any details could change the outcome of the tie.
@CirdomAkul in all his games, the home team tends to win more
Real Madrid win. Ronaldo to score.
a solid performance should bring real madrid to the semis
I'm afraid even a good Bayern performance won't be enough. Even if they score 2 goals (which would be nearly a miracle) Ronaldo will manage to score at least one like he always does and make it even more difficult.
Bayern will have to put up an outstanding performance if they want to even have a chance like Schalke in 2014/2015 (https://www.whoscored.com/Matches/904249/Live/Europe-UEFA-Champions-League-2014-2015-Real-Madrid-Schalke-04).
I feel like this will be a crazy match 2-2 or even 3-3.
See you on final Real, dont you worry Barca will comeback im pretty sure. We need to see ElClasicoFinal at least before cr and messi retire
1 2 I want to see panalties
If Lewa is fit for this game Bayern might still have a chance. If not they're out IMO. Lewa is not just a goalscorer but also one that can hold on to the ball while his offensive teammates find positions. Müller lack that quality (and, some might say, quality at all this season so far)
@jesper Müller doesn't lack quality at all, he is playing other role this season, creating more chances than finishing ones. And he excell in that. Certainly he has not played as striker in a while, thus the lack of precision in front of the goal, imho.
@hughcross He lacks quality in holding on to the ball, general ball control, dribbling, ,physical strenght to deal with defenders in the penalty area, combination play and lately also in scoring. So I would say he lacks a lot when used as a striker ...
@hughcross I think his precision in front of the goal is not the problem. It's that he has been quite bad in build up play lately, always losing the ball easily. By statistics he was dispossessed 4 times last game against Real and that's not counting the times he couldn't control the ball at all.
Real Madrid should finish this game off with a goal from BBC in the first half itself. Unless, Bayern show up with a goal or two then Second half would be tense affair but my money is on Real Madrid to go through. #HalaMadrid
We are still in this.If Madrid can win at Allianz arena,we can win in the bernabeu.2-1 Bayern and win in penalties.
This game will be very different to the first leg. Bayern has nothing to lose and they'll be very dangerous in here. The tie depends on Real Madrid's performance in this game.
Real 2-1 FCB
@MathCatsFootball Would be good. For both remaining FCB fixtures.
