UEFA Champions League 2018 Discussion

Kicking off a general discussion thread for the Champions League 2018. The final will be played on May 26th in Kiev, Ukraine.

First Leg:

13th February 20:45
Basel - Manchester City
Juventus - Tottenham

14th February 20:45
Porto - Liverpool
Real Madrid - Paris SG

20th February 20:45
Bayern - Beşiktaş
Chelsea - Barcelona

21st February 20:45
Sevilla - Manchester Utd
Shaktar Donetsk - Roma

Also a thread to suggest places to meet and watch the games together, should you be interested.

Paris Saint-Germain are currently favourites.

As a Liverpool fan, I'm delighted we don't have to trek to Basel - and delighted Citeh do.

As a Liverpool Fan I'm disappointed they're not coming to turn Basel over... Porto won't be quite as easy.

Still some cracking games to look forward to

Re: UEFA Champions League 2018 Discussion

I'm happy to pass on Basel; had enough sneering from their fans here each time I mention LFC. Looking forward to the PSG-LPL* game in May.

My team plays Chelsea but I won't make the trip to London. However, I'd love to catch the Basel-v-City match at St. Jakob but suspect getting tickets will be virtually impossible for anything under 300 CHF

Well.. me too.. so it'd be great to stuff them 7-0

If I was a betting man (thankfully I'm not) .. I'd predict a ManC v. Real final

Re: UEFA Champions League 2018 Discussion

If I'm correct, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Celtic all rubbed their hands and licked their lips in not too distant past CL campaigns at the prospect of playing and easily knocking Basel out (in one of these seasons, the great Mohamed Salah of Liverpool, was a Basel player).


Although all the above were stronger on paper, they were all unceremoniously and embarrassingly knocked out by Basel. I'm backing "our local team", the underdog, again, so much more fun when one wins against the odds, and it's not like they havnae done it lately neither.


Hopp Basel!

Re: UEFA Champions League 2018 Discussion

Liverpool in magnificent form this evening against Porto. Glad for Mané. It'll be a hard decision which game to watch on the return legs: Liverpool - Porto or Real Madrid - Paris SG? An excellent problem, if you're not a Porto fan...

English teams looking good in Europe this year.

so instead of the match that was predicted to be awesome and turned out to be awesome, you watched Porto vs Liverpool what a waste of an evening.

The ball is round, the game lasts ninety minutes.

Well, prawn sandwiches are delicious it‘s true, but my seratonin is linked to LFC hammering in the goals and winter can be cruel, so I take my kicks where I find them. The return leg will be an interesting game.
