Ronaldo and Messi are two different types of players. If I'm starting a team and both players are available, I take Messi. That's just me tho

How does Barcelona choke that game that poorly?
This team has some of the greatest players in the world and they looked like shit.

Because they were up against a team with a legendary pedigree in European competition, adding yet another epic night at Anfield to their long list of glorious Champions League successes.

No shitty goalkeeper to blow the final this year either.

Liverpool and Barca were the best two teams left and it probably should have been the final. Either way, great drama in both semis.

Liverpool wins the final 2-0.

Liverpool is the clear favorite. I think the bigger shock is how they ended up down 3-0 in the first place(didn't get to watch that game). I watched the 2nd Leg on my cell sitting in some horrid traffic that day. I don't think I've watched semi's that were more dramatic than this.

Both teams had their chances, but Barca were just more clinical in the final third in the first leg. Second goal was a bit of a lucky bounce in that it came off the bar right to Messi in front of an open goal. The third (Messi's second) was a sublime free kick I just had to accept and admire. Just the GOAT being the GOAT.

As a Liverpool fan all I could do was respect it and I didn't think we stood a chance of clawing back that deficit. But they were full of resolve and just outplayed Barca on Wednesday. It was really something. As was the Spurs second half yesterday. Like Liverpool, they didn't quit, and somehow pulled it off. I agree, never seen two semis won like that before. Both teams fully deserve their place in the final after these comebacks.

All england finals in Europa too.

This is Liverpools competition now. Congrats to Man City for handling their own and stealing the Premier League from them.
Messi seems to be on the wrong end of malcontent negative emotional collapses at the highest levels.

Can the greatest of all time be an underachiever?

Liverpool is overwhelming right now, but sometimes they struggle to score for 75 minutes.

That would be concerning with the presence of Harry Kane who just has a magical flair for cutting open at the perfect moment. England’s Wondelowski.

Except Wondelowski missed a wide open net vs Belgium in 2014 that would have won the game in stoppage time. Dude choked
