 Galacticos v Chelski
Topic Originator: GG Riva  
Date:   Tue 27 Apr 19:39

Two "Super League " clubs go head to head tonight. I dislike Real more but I think they'll score a couple of goals tonight which will probably be enough to take them to the final.

I think it will be a low scoring game possibly 1 0 Madrid or 1 all if Chelsea sneak something.

Hopefully that jinxed it to a 7 goal thriller.

Rejuvenated Chelsea ... Liverpool missed a barra load of chances last game against Real so not inconceivable for a narrow Blues win

Chelsea could been out of sight if they had taken the chances in 1st 20mins.

many on here would be fuming if they had the away team turn up to our home game and played the way chelsea so far and dominated the game.

Some game. Both teams going for it. Zidane playing a high risk strategy with three at the back against a very mobile Chelsea front three

A much more open game than I expected. Chelsea could have been out of sight if Werner had more awareness.

Eta. Ramos is a big miss at the back for Real.

Hopefully Real can improve in the second leg and make it through. No great love for them but I`m never as keen on watching a champions league final where its being contested between two clubs from the same nation.

Not sure they will batter City. I don`t think any team are good enough to batter them

I expect City to have the bulk of possession but PSG will be extremely dangerous on the counter attack. I think PSG will score but I think City will edge it 2-1

It certainly should be a fascinating watch

Will Chelsea make it an all English CL final tonight? Most neutrals would probably prefer a City - Real final. Those between teams from the same country tend to be cagey and dull.

Twenty minutes in and Real aren`t posing Chelsea any problems. Would certainly prefer a Real City final even though I reckon City would find it tougher against Chelsea.

Big rebuilding job required at Madrid.

City would have preferred Madrid, without a much doubt

Can't believe how poor Real have been. City would wipe the floor with them. As TOWK says, Chelsea will be a far tougher nut to crack.

Now if Manchester United and Arsenal make it to the other final we will have an English monopoly. Would be slightly surprised if Arsenal make it though.


You would have to say that Thomas Tuchel has done the business with Chelsea. They were down and out with Frank Lampard and now they look terrific. Currently a lot more special than the former special one. Possibly with a lot more humility too.

Tuchell bossed Pep in the FA cup tie although Man City played a weaker team in fairness .I think the 442 with two false 9s is on another level. Pep changed to that second half against PSG in first leg and it worked so well . De Bruyne and Bernardo were the false 9s. Pep must hate strikers

Really? I thought I made it very obvious that City would have preferred to meet Real in the final. The Spanish club has so many aging legs in its squad that they would have found it hard to last 90 mins against City's quick passing possession football.

I think City will probably have too much nous and skill for Chelsea's young team, but they're fast and dangerous on the counter and Tuchel has them playing with real belief. City didn't field their strongest side in the FA Cup semi-final, but they will do on May 29th. I don't think Pep will be afraid of Chelsea but he'll be wary of them and his tactics will reflect that. I expect a cagey game with few goals, so the first one will be crucial.

Utter madness, in the current climate, If UEFA insist upon the final being in Istanbul.

Make it at Wembley, they'll each get 10k fans in and Istanbul can get it next year when, hopefully, travel will be easier/not actively discouraged.

Agreed 100%. At a time when there is i) a covid crisis and ii) an environmental crisis UEFA want to host a game between 2 english clubs, with fans, In Turkey which is 1000`s of miles away and in lockdown! Absolutely Mental.

It`s UEFA though - it won`t happen even although it makes perfect sense

If Arsenal get through, then the same scenario arises. Could play that game at Wembley quite easily

Old Trafford or Twickenham in that case.

City and Chelsea should just tell UEFA that`s what`s happening - and if they don`t agree, threaten to create a European Super League...

Brentford, Swansea, Bournemouth and Barnsley are the four teams - play the final at Spurs` ground.

Chelsea and Manchester City fans should not travel to Turkey for the Champions League final, says transport secretary Grant Shapps, after he added the country to England`s travel red list.

The biggest game in European football is set to take place in Istanbul on 29 May.

Schapps said Covid-19 red list countries "should not be visited except in the most extreme circumstances".

He added that the government was open to hosting the game in the UK.

Travellers from India, Pakistan et al can fly into Turkey who are now in lockdown then on to the UK unchallenged to avoid the quarantine procedures ... Does not seem right to me
