Dier lining up in a Champions League game with Bayern Munich alongside Kane, crazy. Happy for both of them.

If 3 German teams go out then Italy can do whatever they want.

Hard to imagine all the possible permutations. I totally forgot about Aston Villa in the conference league too - they have to play Ajax. It would be funny if they finished 5th and missed CL because they went out of the conference league.

We probably need 4-5 english teams to get through this round

Probably would be best for our hopes of 5 CL spots if Bayern go out
I was coming on here to ask….uefa coefficient people…who do we want to win in the Bayern game?

after Spain is it Germany or Italy the biggest threat ?

Bayern look toothless but given their injuries it’s to be expected. Sane clearly isn’t fit and I doubt Gnabry on the bench isn’t either.

It’s funny when you look at Liverpool with Klopp leaving and a huge injury crisis yet they’re still top of the league and have won a cup with the kids. Whereas with Bayern, Tuchel is also leaving, they’ve injuries predominantly in wide areas but they look a shadow of their former self.

Italy and Germany are #1 and 2 right now. Spain shouldn't be much threat because they'll only have 2-3 teams left in europe after this round.

Villa will murder Ajax… granted they’ve had an upturn in results but they’re terrible compared to Ajax of a few years ago. Villa have to reach at least the semi’s to gain points for the English teams 5th place Champions League hopes.

I have zero confidence in non-big-6 english teams in europe. They always seem to crash and burn even against shit opponents.

Emery is a master of these B list UEFA tournaments though

Since Lazio beat Bayern a few weeks ago they’ve been dreadful in Serie A yet they’ve yet to be troubled by the once mighty Bayern

De Ligt what a banger. That must have been tried on the training ground.

But Muller might be offside

Edit: no, he's not. Great goal
