I couldn't see the match, I was watching the basketball... btw, we won 79-80 to Real Madrid, but I saw the goal later in Canal 9 (Valencian TV), they called him: Aladinho!

Ronaldinho is each time better... the eliminatory is almost done, I'd play with some reserves in Barcelona.

Good result and a deserved win after a rather poor game (the football game, that is ).
Piss poor freekicks by Motta and Ronaldinho, apart from the one before the goal, that was simply superstar-material again, collecting the rebound and finishing it with a nice shot.
I'm not normally a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me, Superman.

Ronaldinho's final ball wasn't the best last night.

Hola hombres. Thanks for a good match and congratulations with the deserved win.

I've copied this, which I've posted in the Brøndby Thread:

---------------------------------

The Tifo

I must say the TIFO-group and the many helpful volunteers, made a fantastic tifo - perhaps the greatest ever at Brøndby Stadion. The awesome rulleflag, portraying a bunch of vikings in their ships, that covered Faxe-Tribunen is definitely up there besides the Gladiator vs. Lion-one against FCK last year.
The mosaic covering the rest of the stadium was of course quite similar to the one against Schalke, but still having the mind-blowing effect one experienced last time. I was of course behind the "curtain", so I didn't actually see the tifo live.











The match


Auri up against Thiago Motta




The free-kick leading to the goal


A happy bunch


Is his legs that black?!


The 18-year-old super talent, Johan Absalonsen getting his debut




Jonson gave an ok performance after two weeks of illness up to the match


We were afterall satisfied and could "praise" the players after the match

-------------------------------

Here's an article from a Spanish paper about the atmosphere at the match: El Brondby Stadium, el infierno del norte

I'll make a match review later on - as usual.

Cheers.

I saw the match, it was quite the spectacle. Ronald wanted to be the star of the show and gave it everything he had. It paid off. He deserved it, nice to see a player of his talent actually work his socks off, reminds me of Beckham. Brondby also tried hard.

I would fancy Barca in the next tie. Good game.

Thanx frederik, nice pics.

The tifo was brilliant. In the article it says more or lessish, be Danish supporters are as noisy are the greeks and turkish, but much more civilized.

It also says that a Barça player told the press "we could sing those fans to support us at the Nou Camp", when half an hour before the match the stadium was full and everyone was singing.

I know, I've read a full Danish translation of it. It's always nice to get such recognition from outsiders.

Let me translate it for the non-spanish-speaking.


Brøndby Stadium, Hell in North

Intensity-wise the Danes supported their team like the Turks or Greeks, but in a more civilized fashion.

We could buy them to come and support os at Camp Nou. That's how some of Rijkaard's players thought, when they half an hour before kick-off, entered the pitch and saw the packed stands with 26,000 spectators, who supported their team from the first till the last minute of the match.

For the home-supporters the match against Barcelona yesterday evening was match of the year, and the atmoshpere was high, it was simply extraordinary. There was nothing to envy of the Turkish and Greek stadiums, which the blue and red have visited som many times the last many years. Because the Danish spectators showed that they are much more civilized.

The stadium welcomed the 22 players with a spectacular mosaic, and with Jump by Van Halen. At The Faxe-Tribune, which is named after John "Faxe" Jensen, who's a legend at the club and current assistant coach of Michael Laudrup, one could see an aesthetic tarpaulin portraying vikings in their ships.


I have to comment on this one. The infamous Faxe-tribune, where the most hardcore supporting fans stand, isn't named after our beloved assistant coach and former player, John "Faxe" Jensen. It's simply taken from the stand's sponsor: The Faxe Breweries - simple as that.

The local fans also celebrated the 6 degrees below freezing-point, which the match was played in. Throughout the day they had been occupied by checking the forecasts on TV. The colder the better, they had thought. The players suffered, but the journalists, who had travelled to Copenhagen suffered even more: There are no boxes at the stadium.


Funny little piece, actually.
He should know how much I froze! I had to be on the Faxe Tribune two hours (!) before kick-off, to find a good spot. Now that was a cold experience!

Too kind, Ivan Helguera.

3000 Brøndby-fans will take the trip to Barcelona, and I bet they'll give another great efford to support their players in the Camp Nou.

Convocated list:

Porteros: Rustu y Valdés
Defensas: Reiziger, Puyol, Oleguer, Van Bronckhorst, Oscar López
Centrocampistas: Xavi, Cocu, Motta, Gabri, Ros, Iniesta
Delanteros: Ronaldinho, Saviola, Luis García, Quaresma, Overmars

It seems that Rijkaard has the intention of playing with the same team of Riazor, chaging Motta for Davids.

I hope Motta has a good game tommorow in place of Davids. He deserves it after that scandalous sending off on Sunday.

Our possible line-up

A bit more defensive minded this time around - coming from a 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2, that is.

23-year-old, Martin Retov returns to our midfield after being banned in the first leg. This will undoubtedly make our midfield, and play in general, better.

Otherwise no surprises, really.


Zaza

Auri - Dan Anton - P.Nielsen - Sennels

Retov - Jakobsson - Wieghorst - Kahlenberg

Kamper - Jonson


The defence is the same as in the first leg. The midfield though, has seen changes. We're now playing with a basic 4-4-2-midfield, so to speak, where Kahlenberg and Retov, who normally are central based, defensive and offensive respectively, plays on the wings.

Our attack has been changed from a one-man-attack with including wings to a tradtional 2-man-attack. Kamper and Jonson, who normally features as wings will make out the attack tonight.

This is what most of the papers have seen as a possible line-up, and I agree with them. Laudrup doesn't care much about the numbers (4-4-2 or 4-3-3) in the tactic, and we could easily change the 4-4-2 to a 4-3-3. It wouldn't even take a substitute to do it.

Good match tonight.
