Thought so. Matri is doing great as a target man up front on those long balls.

Disappointed that Juventus didn't go out and buy a legit striker in the winter. All this seems like it's a lost cause already.

They're ahead so what you just said makes no sense.

Llorente is going to be on the team in the summer.

No chance of getting past Bayern, Dortmund, RM, and Barcelona with their current set-up. Getting Llorente is almost a cop out. Practically hasn't played all year.

Llorente is coming in the summer.

They got Anelka as a temp replacement in the meantime. But I agree with you, Juventus is a super star striker away from becoming one of the best teams in Europe.

Victor Wanyama is such a commanding figure in the middle of the pitch. Looks like Essien when he was under Mourinho. Hopefully Fergie is keeping track of his progress.

Don't think Celtic deserve to be down 2-0 but Forster has cost them dearly.

Could see Juve winning the CL, why not? They are a threat and showed their aptitude at playing a strong counter attacking game.

Rami pulls one back for Valencia, some poor marking by PSG as he ran free and knocked it in the goal.

Ibra sent off too due to an unbelievable overreaction by Guardado.
