Conte continues to live up this reputation. Dude's got a serious mental block in Europe.
When i said he will choke people thought group was too easy for that to happen. It will be hilarious when he gets eliminated by Eintracht.
Napoli seems unstoppable for now, i hope they will fall off...
Spalletti always does well in first part of the season. When winter comes that's when the choking starts.

What are group stage tie breaker rules. Is it still h2h or gd? If its gd, then Barca can still progress even if we draw next match. We struggle for goals more.

Ultimate tie breaker is h2h. Get a draw at Camp Nou and then you're almost through.

Napoli is full of players FIF wanted here. No wonder they are doing as good.

Hard to overstate how critical yesterday's win was. We now have two very clear paths out of the group.

1) tie Barca at Camp Nou, beat Viktoria
2) beat Viktora, take points from Bayern in the 6th round (they'll have nothing to play for)

This, of course, is assuming Bayern beats Barca in their next matchup. I like our odds.

There's also the path of choking

We are basically playing a knockout-round with Barcelona.

With a 2-0 Barcelona wins and gets into the next round.
With a draw probably we win.

So we can take thier place ofc :yao2:..
As it stands we won't be a threat to Napoli in Italy. We should feel threatened for a top4 spot by Roma, Lazio, Juventus etc.

Of course, this can change cause it's very early season, but so far nothing suggests that we will finish first or at least 2nd/3rd place unless we start performing and winning regularly. 4th is the target.
