I mean it's always fun to mock Kane, but Tuchel going full turtle with at least 15 minutes left cost them the tie. It's Madrid, thinking you are going to just see it out is the peak of naivety.

Yeah that's a complete choke by the ref, it's not even close to obviously offside, and is likely onside. Brutal.

Thing with that play is I don't think the goal happens if it's not called offside.

The Madrid defenders seemed to see the flag up / whistle and clearly stopped playing IMO. Sucks for Bayern and their fans but I'm not sure it's a goal if the flag isn't up and whistle hadn't blown.

The linesman has to keep his flag down there for sure though, and let VAR decide that since it was close. But I'm not certain that's a goal if the flag stays down and whistle didn't blow.

And honestly it's giving Bayern a pass when they choked away the tie in the death.

Is the Joselu sub the greatest sub in the 80th minute onwards ever...has to be close

Theres a lot to unpack there, and I do think Bayern got screwed at the end, but that was an end of their own making.

Tuchel's decisions were ridiculous and Bayern were a complete shambles for the last 20 minutes.

Even had Bayern scored that one they were going to have to survive 30 minutes with basically no attacking options and a gassed team. Probably end up losing anyway. But it's mostly just annoying because there have been instances this year where players got hurt after a fairly obvious offside was allowed to play on until conclusion, but this one that was extremely close was blown right away.

Sure...but man...as a fan, wouldnt that have been fun? That could have been an epic ending as opposed to a blown call.

Oh sure. And having Choupo-Moting score the winner so one Stoke legend could outdo another would have been peak comedy. But yeah even though Tuchel turtled, Neuer botching that easy one is still maybe the hardest thing to believe. Maybe the Madrid juju comes through anyway, but never would have thought he'd blow that.

True, and I'm a big Neuer fan, but he's also getting a little long in the tooth for a Pro Athlete.

The shot looked easy but it also came up very fast off the pitch. The behind the net angle you can see how he was not expecting it to bounce the way it and it hit him in the face.

Very unusual end to the game with that offside call. You have to let that playout and let VAR determine the offside.

Seeing Neuer make that error feels somehow fitting considering that he appears to be very cocky in his play with the ball.

No disrespect to Dortmund, they earned it, but we really need a Leverkusen-Madrid final just to see who Satan ultimately chooses. Would also be fun to see Madrid up 6-0 in the 80th, only for Leverkusen to score 9 in 5 minutes, but then Madrid scores 3 more, including a bicycle kick from the halfway line by a blind Vinicius Jr, but then Xabi Alonso goes out and scores a goal that decapitates Courtois for the winner.

NO FREAKING WAY. Leverkusen do it again. Down 2-0 at the 81 minute. Ends 2-2

Makes for incredibly entertaining football when Roma is pushing for a goal to send the tie to Extra time and Leverkusen is pushing for a goal to extend their streak

Again, people can moan about Bayern but this season Leverkusen have just been inevitable.

Mbappe officially confirms he'll leave PSG after this season.

Paid €180m for him, only to lose him for free at 25 without winning a CL with him. Couldn't have happened to a nicer club.

The invincibles of Germany. Congrats to Bayer Leverkusen and Xabi Alonso

Two games remain between them and the greatest club season ever

Wish we’d see more of these celebrations in North America, climb into the stands and have the supporters lift the shield. No dumb interviews while celebrations are ongoing. Just a party between club and fans

what a day for VfB Stuttgart too. First, their U21 won the title and gained promotion to the 3rd league, then the first team hammered Gladbach 4-0 with some really beautiful goals and because of Bayerns loss to Hoffenheim, they even ended up as runners-up. Deservedly so, Leverkusen and Stuttgart were the two best teams in the league this season and it's great that the final table reflects that. Simply incredible job by a team that had to fight off relegation the past few years ... it's amazing what the right coach at the right place at the right time can do in football! Now here's hoping the team isn't immediately gutted in the summer ...

sad to see FC Cologne relegated.
