Club Brugge being first in a group with Atletico, Bayer and Porto, 9 points, 7:0 goal difference. Dope
Reminds me of Panathinaikos in 2001-2 edition. Group was Arsenal, Schalke and Mallorca (Samuel Eto'o).
Reached quarters and Puyol, the ref and Barcelona's luck at the final second sent them to the semis instead at the Nou Camp.

Much different times though.

Spalletti always does well in first part of the season. When winter comes that's when the choking starts.
I think you will be right in the end but I have to say that right now, the way they are playing is amazing. I've never saw this kind of football at Inter under Spalletti. They play so dynamically such incredibly movement within the team. So aggressive and so much pressure going forward that the can only lose from themself. They really outclassed Ajax at every level and I've seen some amazing teams playing against Ajax in Amsterdam in the CL. No club did what they did yesterday. Normally people ( or I ) blame the referee or 1 or 2 players when Inter or Ajax are losing but I really enjoyed seeing Napoli playing.

If (and it's a big if because we are Inter and we are the best) we don't win the Scudetto this year I really hope Napoli will win if they continue to play like this. But yeah let's wait until the choking season for Spalletti begins.

The composure of these kids are ridiculous, something we are missing. Which is weird as you'd think composure should improve as you get older

Haaland > Mbappe?
Ofc. Haaland is unlucky he is from Norway and not from France/Brazil/Argentina

Mbappe is REALLY amazing player, but his ego is a bit too much.

While Haaland is unstoppable, no matter where he goes.

De Kaetelare needs to help Milan's midfield, he is passenger like this

Milan yet again embarrassing our league. They've been so bad and toothless here. Lots of injuries in fairness

I'm cool with Milan losing, but I dislike young talent going to waste like this.

Sterling is a wasteful shitter that can't use his pace to a true purpose to his game. I just knew he won't do nothing.

Sterling doesn't have a world class midfield behind him to give him 5 chances per game to score at least once :lol:

I think he's sad that City got rid of him

If Benfica can draw PSG, Juve is likely the third

Milan is getting outplayed easily, total bust of full of 0's in the first half. This group is nuts, everyone can advance after 3 rounds.

Also don't get fooled by Haifa's 1:6 gd. They are playing on par with Rube statistics wise. They can still get something out of it tonight. Score and Allegri will panic.

Chelsea's defence and Mount are doing good, while Aubameyang and Sterling are doing absolutely nothing. Kovačić is swimming around too, but that's kinda his job when Jorginho isn't there

It will be hilarious if CL DNA club can't qualify after being in Pot 1.
