    So Juve got beat 3-0, almost 4-0.. What a load of rubbish.

    At least Man United got the proper result, not sure about Pogba's injury, but I hope it's not anything too serious.

    Atleti getting a draw at Roma seems a fair results.

    PSG and Chelsea hammering their opponents was a given.

    Nothing surprising here really. Also, nice to see James starting as a #10 for Bayern against Anderlecht.

    Pogba injury seems to be a hamstrings strain - should be 2-3 weeks maybe. It's alright we have super Felli

    Fellaiini is our Arbeloa. Rubbish but someone you can rely on.. I'd take the latter.

    Some great games for neutrals tonight.

    RB Leipzig vs Monaco
    Tottenham vs Dortmund
    Liverpool vs Sevilla

    it's hard to know what to watch. despite the lack of a British club I may actually watch the former.

    Watch WAXTAP x Napoli.. The latter play the most beautiful football. Also, Diawara is starting... Absolute gem.

    I'm puzzled myself.. to be fair.

    In all fairness Dortmund were missing a chunk of their regular starters - Schmelzer, Raphael Guerreiro, Erik Durm, Marc Bartra, Sebastian Rode, André Schürrle, Marco Reus, and that's about it.

    Still, Spurs seemed to have had a good game from the few minutes I saw, especially Kane.

    They were missing Alli and Wanyama, who're their starters.

    Everton are in the basement at the minute. Says more about them than the league.

    There's a theory that Napoli want to throw the CL as they really think this could be their year to overcome Juventus in serie A. I would devote all my energies to that, if I were them.

    Sucks for us that just before the Saturday where we play them, city have a Tuesday night game at home whereas we fly abroad on the Wednesday night to the toughest team to play away at in Europe...

    Given the financial windfall with overcoming a round or winning a match in the CL, I'd say that's highly unlikely. Throwing the Europa League is pretty much Serie A (and other leagues) practice because the prize money is a joke compared to the CL. It's all about CL money nowadays, especially for Italian teams with Serie A's TV revenues being so low compared to the big leagues. Juve's financial success is largely down to the CL runs in the past couple of seasons.

    Mbappe bamboozled the Bayern defence.

    I'm just utterly delighted with our result and performance last night. First time we've genuinely dominated and beaten a really top European club away in years.

    Sporting looked scary at the second half during our match against them. I've enjoyed watching Paulinho play so far. I hope he continues to play well. His performance against Getafe and Eibar was great. Strong strong man.

    There were so many memes and complaining from Barca fans when he was announced.. "Shoddy player" based on his Spurs season.. He's one of the main players in Tite's Brazil, and he's good.. He was already at Corinthians before moving to Europe. Just Spurs wasn't the right club for him.

    Everyone at the Barca reddit were so in-love with Seri and they felt that 40 mil could have been spent on Seri instead. I don't have enough knowledge on the skills that Seri has but so far I think Paulinho has been money well spent. The physicality and aggression that he brings to the team is really refreshing. His goal against Getafe made me so happy and amazed. He just brushed off the defender, the same defender that has been harassing and making Suarez's life so hard the whole game, like it was nothing.
