12 August: Atalanta vs PSG
13 August: Leipzig vs Atlético
14 August: Barcelona vs Bayern

Decent draw for City...chunky Depay is looking decent atm though.

Historical data seems to suggest a Spanish team will win the ECL.

That Barca vs Bayern game... If it wasn't for curfews and beer bans I'd be at Monte eating pizza and downing draft watching it as if it's a final!

My bet is on Bayern: Barca is strong but not "potent". I reckon ... 3-2

Leipzig is this season's Ajax...fun to watch and very dangerous. Hoping for an upset in that tie in particular.
Funny enough the last time an English team won the ECL (before Liverpool last year) a German Team (Bayern Munich) won the ECL the following year but every other time this century a Spanish Team won it the season after an English team won the tournament.

Atlético have cases of Covid in their squad. They should be made to withdraw.

United hanging on to beat a Danish team in 120 mins via a dodgy penalty....why exactly would Sancho want to go to United?

Abu, is that you?

You're obsessed
He is indeed obsessed. But I think this time he is worried that Sancho might come to United. Especially after the boost Bruno has given United. And while Liverpool buy 11 million pound defenders.....

Typical Atleti game so far...boring AF.

:sleep:
Such a pity Timo Werner is not able to complete this season... this COVID really screwed up everything - shouldn't he be allowed to finish playing the CL for RBL?

Atalanta has been the Ajax of last season :D such a pity they couldn't take advantage of the 1-0 lead against PSG

Leipzig - PSG should be a much better game than this one, hopefully. Glad the team playing football got through (respect to Simeone but they're dreadful to watch).
