If liverpool win, would one place an * next to it due to the ease of draw>
Possibly one of the easiest runs to a final and a weak Madrid knocking off the best challengers. People talk about Madrids luck but Liverpool haven’t really had to break sweat and will walk away with a CL

Gotta hand it to Pep at the end there, Real Madrid were going full on shithousery with those 'injuries' and time wasting, and he stayed completely composed and didn't lose his shit. He even seemed pretty positive after the whistle, I think he knows he has to pick his players back up as soon as possible and keep them in a positive frame of mind so they don't risk dropping the league as well. Fair play 👏

You think this is a great Madrid team? They have a couple world class players then a squad of blokes who better 4 years ago. Individual brilliance won't get them past Liverpool
Who’s gives a shit how they compare with past Real sides. You go on and say Liverpool are best or second best in the world and here Real have just beaten and put six past the best or second best side in the world.

Yes because your opinion on a side should constantly change after every single result. Pretty silly way to look at it.

This is a really dumb logic.

I'm honestly stunned city were the better side for 178 of the 180 minutes. Having 2 world class CBs give up penalties and missing a shitload of chances.

Madrid didn't have a shot on target for 90 minutes then scored two in injury time then another goal five minutes into extra time. Unbelievable.

I'd bet on Liverpool winning the final but you can't rule out Madrid in a two horse race.

I’m simply saying if they’re good enough to do this to City. I expect Liverpool to win but a bit premature to completely discount RM
An I'm simply saying that this current Liverpool side will beat this current Madrid side 9 times out of 10.
For as much as Madrid scored 6 they should have conceded 15. Liverpool don't miss those chances that's why theyve made 4 European finals.

🤷‍♂️

We dont do the draw, we can only play who are in front of us. We should have had a tough semi against Bayern but they bottle'd it. Not our problem.

We did have the apparent group of death though but we won all 6 games. Also if we win the CL, we will have beaten the reigning Italian champions and the reigning Spanish champions.

But again, we can only beat who's in front of us. Hopefully we have one more win in us.

You can blame the manager for taking off the only players who could get them back into it following that point.

Easy to criticise in retrospect.

Walker was a forced sub due to injury.
Not sure why Gundogan came on for De Bruyne but they went 2 goals up a minute later.
Grealish for Jesus was like for like and he nearly scored a couple of goals.
Fernandinho for Mahrez at 2 goals up with 5 minutes to go was the correct decision at the time. Sterling for Rodri in ET effectively cancelled that out.

Anything can happen in a one off game of football. I'd be more confident if it was over two legs. More time to right any wrongs or wondergoals or mistakes.

Hopefully we just get it right, we usually do. You are right about scoring goals, that is a difference between us and City. We have goal scorers at the pointy end of the field.

What ******* manager keeps tired players on in case 2 hypothetical goals get scored in a couple minutes. This is meme posting to the max

How is Grealish for Jesus like for like?
