Thats going to be amazing, but actually Spurs vs. Dortmund could potentially be just a wild tie.

So back to it this afternoon. A lot has certainly changed in the two months between draw date and today. At the time most people wrote United's obituary for UCL, now they are considered pretty decent favorites by most of the media given their form and PSG's injury issues. If nothing else it has gone from what looked like one of the worst ties to arguably the most intriguing now.

man I'm so pumped for this today. United have to take full advantage of Neymar, Cavani and Meunier being injured.

Kimpembe probably should have been sent off, instead he scores and then Mbappe a few minutes after. Brutal for United.

well that didn't go as planned. Full credit to PSG, they were the better side by a fair margin and deserve the result. It's a reality check for United, for sure.

Marquinhos was dominant in midfield today, best game I’ve seen him play. Man U looked pretty toothless going forward, seemed every time they got into a good position there was 2-3 Paris players waiting. Mbappe only had to really work for 5 minutes and the game was over, remarkable pace.

Thiago Silva still a damn tank, I thought it was naive from United to not have Lukaku starting. With no arial threat in the box it made life very easy for Silva and Co.

My only brief glimpse of hope was when I thought it was Young for whatever reason getting the second yellow and red and was therefore going to be unavailable for the second leg.

Great second half performance from Spurs, Dortmund look terrible.

Disastrous from Dortmund. Hopefully they can turn it around at home but they really fell apart at the end

Gotta give Spurs a lot of credit.

They've managed exceptionally well sans Kane and Alli.

Ajax dominated Real in the first half.
Unlucky VAR call against.
Overall happy with the performance, pissed because we deserved a way better result over 90 minutes.
First loss in 13 games.

Mathijs de Ligt becoming the youngest captain in the history of the knock out stages of the Champions League.

I just became a fan of your team after watching that game.

I usually dont care for Soccer outside of world cup and didnt today either until they told me at work they had to upgrade me to Windows 10 so I went to a buddys house after lunch and he had the game on.

Real lucked out, Ajax dominated them. Bad officiating too. Go Ajax

What a game from Super Jan! Spurs just looked great in that second half as a lot of players stepped up. I’m pretty sure that they’ll have at one of Kane and Alli back for the second leg, and playing in Germany it’ll be a tough game.

Vinicius Jr looking pretty damn impressive for an 18-year-old, his assist on the first goal was pretty amazing. Most Brazilians are expecting him to be called up for the next set of friendlies and for a player his age that is exceptionally rare. He leads Madrid in assists in all comps with 10 and he's only been starting games since December. All the talk by Brazil fans is that he is the future number 10 of the national team and I have to agree. Ajax played exceptionally well, Madrid seemed a bit caught off guard by their aggressiveness. Very entertaining game!

Kane might be back on the 23rd I saw a few days ago

Guessing if he is, give him a run out in the 2nd half so hes fit to start vs arsenal and chelsea

Dortmund may be time enough for alli too

Poch will go for offense there too, 1 goal and dortmund suddenly need 5

Yeah they might be ready, but can they crack this lineup?

You know I was worried earlier this year during the Arsenal unbeaten run that the banter days for Arsenal were coming to an end. And here we are, Lacazette getting a straight red and they're about to lose to BATE Borisov, and it's been a poor run the last two or so months. Banter days done? Might be better than ever soon.
