Anyone else paying attention?

Porto, United move on. In true French fashion, PSG retreats and blows a 2-0 away advantage

Roma got screwed there was a clear penalty for them in OT, Let's hope Juve goes home and in a painful way

Champions League has turned into the NFL postseason. Nothing happens...lets arbitrarily go to VAR to decide the games!

I do like how VAR kind of emphasizes all the shenanigans in pro soccer. The Roma defender obviously was pulling the Porto player's jersey from behind, the Porto player was too slow in reacting to the pass that there was no way he was going to get to the ball, the Porto player "collapses" in an effort to draw a bogus penalty. Then later, the Roma player is chasing the ball as is bouncing out of the box, the Porto player gets too close and his toe grazes the Roma player's heel, the Roma player "collapses" on the edge of the box in an effort to draw a bogus penalty. Unwatchable.

Both were penalties according to the rules but 2-3 years ago neither would have been called

BTW i'm supporting anyone but Juve and Barcelona

Agreed. I don't really understand how one was a penalty and the other wasn't...either they both are because you are upholding the letter of the law, or neither are because you are using judgement/common sense.

Same here. Just need sports entertainment to get thru the dry months considering the dumpster fires that the White Sox, Hawks and Bulls are(and soon to be Cubs).

I root for anyone but Barcelona. Good to see the EPL get 2 teams into the final 8. Man City & Liverpool left.

I admire Ronaldo and i think he's the GOAT and to see him do what he does for Juve is really painful

Man City thru, in a complete ass-kicking of Schalke (how the fuck did they give up 2 goals being a man up??)

Liverpool probably loses tomorrow @ Bayern

Exciting game. Atletico didn't do much of anything, but I thought the late penalty awarded to Juve was kind of bogus as the guy tripped over his own feet.

All 4 EPL teams advance. Liverpool with an impressive win today @ Bayern. Bayern & Madrid both out in the round of 16. Doesn't happen often from what I can remember.

It'll be Barcelona vs Juve. United will get slaughtered vs Barcelona, City will lose to Ronaldo, Liverpool will bow out to Messi.
