    what ever happened to the live draw (e.g. pot w/ balls) I know that call still be rigged, but a document seems fake.

    Yeah, I feel like most of the "leaks" that come out are usually fake. Except for the one from last year's semis that I think got them right.

    Hilarious that in this “random” draw the 4 clear favorites managed to avoid each other until the semis.

    That would be impressive if true. Boring though for no matches to be played

    I could’ve sworn that I saw small letters on the outside of theballs being drawn for those favorites at one point

    They’ve had previous ex-footballers handling the draw admit to it being rigged

    Why then in 2016-17 did they drew Dortmund against Monaco and Atletico against Leicester, leaving Bayern vs. Madrid and Juve vs. Barca i.e. the opposite of what happened this year?

    Yes. They’ll destroy Porto (again) and would much prefer to face ManU/Barca over City/Juve.

    I mean you could argue Barca is the best team in the tournament and they’ll likely have to play them before the final if they win. They also played Bayern in the round of 16.

    Seems quite ridiculous to say they’ll have had a cakewalk to the final

    Seems like something of that magnitude would be readily available, no? Probably because it never happened.

    Well we did have to come through the group of death then Bayern Munich. Barca in the semis would be extremely difficult.

    We literally beat Bayern two days ago didn’t we? PSG and Napoli in our group? But a cakewalk

    Of course Barca will be difficult. They aren’t the same Barca as they were 4-5 years ago though, and it’s showed in UCL play. I thought Juve were by far y’all’s worst potential matchup.

    Love the great take in here that the team that is going to win La Liga isn't that good and the team that is going to win the Bundesliga is also not that good.

    In your last 3 posts you've said you wouldn't beat your chest about beating Bayern, and then you try to minimize Barca by saying they aren't as good as they have been despite them moonwalking to the title in La Liga and being the favorite to win the UCL.

    Last time I checked, City are still favorites to win. Barca are a great side, but they haven’t been nearly as successful in Europe sans Pep and their core is aging. It’s just stating the facts. And try as you might, no one is going to grovel at your feet for beating Bayern. They played maybe 5 good minutes of football and were outclassed in every aspect against y’all.

    Barca are the only team besides Madrid to win the CL in the last 5 years :idk:

    Madrid’s had an absurd run under ZZ. But even during that reign, they still only managed one league title.

    Yeah, Barca haven’t been the same since Pep left, but they’ve still won a CL title after his tenure, whereas Pep has yet to do the same with another squad.
