Neymar110 Defending champion Real Madrid is looking to increase its record Champions League haul to 13 titles. Bayern Munich, meanwhile, is looking to win the tournament for the sixth time, with its last European title in 2013; it has reached the semifinals in eight consecutive years. It will be the seventh time the two powers — No. 1 (Real Madrid) and No. 2 (Bayern Munich) in UEFA’s club rankings — have met in the semifinals of the European club championship. Real Madrid has beaten Bayern Munich in five straight matches.

Roma, in this position thanks to its stunning aggregate upset of Barcelona, has never won the event, last appearing in the semifinals in 1984.

Liverpool, which has five European titles but hasn’t reached the semifinals since 2008, is brimming with confidence after its 5-1 aggregate thumping of Premier League foe Manchester City in the quarterfinals.

“Throughout the whole tournament there hasn’t been a team who strike fear in us,” 19-year-old Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold said before the draw, per the Guardian. “We’ve looked at it from the start that we’re in it to win it. As it goes on, you get closer and closer to getting that chance to win it. We’ve taken another step closer to the final and there are still two more games ahead of us. Whoever we draw on Friday, we’ll look forward to the game and hopefully get to the final.”

Nerazzurri4life Do you have issues with reading comprehension, pav? I just wrote that I find your euro choking to be enjoyable. That is quite different to being 'bothered'

If anyone's bothered it's you, you are still whining about UEFA refs until now. The match was on April 11th but you are still here moaning about unfairness on April 21st. Now if you are satisfied with juve winning domestically would you still whine about UEFA or Real Madrid this long? Clearly you feel something is missing..

May be Agnelli should ask for Italian referees in juve's European matches. That would help.

It's quite interesting how juventini ignore the disallowed Isco goal at the Bernabeu. Stop pretending to be victims.

Juve seems to be bothering you more than I thought.

Just curious, why does it matter if it doesn't show on XT forever?

Juve stopped "reacting" a while ago. Allegri avoided questions about the game last weekend in the pre-match conference. That was a few days after the game. Marotta since then mentioned VAR after being asked and didn't complain.

Unless you're confusing Galliani and co. with Juve.

Only ones whining are you, the anti-Juventini (lol), and your club got something published that threatened others with a lawsuit a few days ago.

lol at losing ALL respect for Buffon b/c of one incident. That's like saying I lost all respect for Zidane b/c of the headbutt. If he did err with his choice of words re Oliver, it had nothing to do with you.

The only complaint you can possibly have is Chiellini's corruption gesture.

Most of the world thinks it was a 50-50 decision, and pointing that out isn't as big an issue as you're making it out to be.

It also had to do with raising awareness. This happens to us every year in knockouts when we meet the big teams. It happened to Roma vs Barca too.

Yeah, as I told you earlier in the thread, Derby d'Italia:



Not that I don't enjoy your using us as your coping mechanism or a way to stay relevant. I do.

Googling continua a sognare takes a couple of seconds..

Already responded to that post you quoted btw.

Your club's ultimate dream is to simply MATCH what Inter did in 2010. You will never admit it, but you know it. So while Inter aren't competitive enough currently (in terms of winning titles), what was achieved in 2010 will remain a benchmark which juve fans dream of achieving.

But every year, the bianconero euro dream turns into a nightmare and boy is that amusingly enjoyable!

And speaking of garbage, excellent trolling

'Referee has case of beer for a heart!’
Football Italia

A goalkeeper in the eighth tier of Italian football imitates Gigi Buffon, accusing a referee of having “a case of beer for a heart”.

The Juventus goalkeeper slated referee Michael Oliver after their exit from the Champions League, stating he was too inexperienced and should have been watching the game from the stands.

The Bianconeri captain also declared that Oliver had “a rubbish bin in place of a heart”.


Michele Contento, goalkeeper for Unione Fincantieri Monfalcone in the Friulian division of the Seconda Categoria, was sent off after just six minutes against San Canzian Begliano for pulling down a striker after a mistake.

He spoke to Telefriuli after the match, and channeled the spirit of Buffon.

“What do you want me to tell you?” Contento asked, visibly holding back laughter.

“In my opinion a Second Categoria referee can’t come to Monfalcone and be allowed to not have the right sensibility, and send off a lad of 40 for a penalty which was... clear.

“If he gives a penalty like that and sends me off after three minutes, it means instead of a heart he has a case of beer”.

Nerazzurri4life The desperation/hunger for the CL is huge in Turin. Absolutely huge. That coupled with juve getting favorable calls usually, meant that a call going against them in such a delicate moment led to Buffon and co losing their heads.

Losing respect meant that you actually had respect before, which is probably because you are not regularly/deeply involved with Serie A.

Quality of posts aside, at this rate, you guys will prolly start committing harakiri if we win a few more titles.

Kafka Even more so when it was based on a totally legitimate decision...

People talk about how this episode won't tarnish Buffon's reputation, etc. But of course it does. He, and Juve in general, showed a huge lack of class. I can understand the reaction when the penalty was awarded, the frustration and disappointment must have been awful and nobody had a clear view of what happened. But since then there have been plenty of opputunities to reflect on the matter and apologize. Yet they have, incredibly, chosen to play the victim card to the bitter end. Well **** Juve, all the important refereeing decisions going in their favour over the years elicited zero empathy toward the opposition. Now the decision wasn't even wrong. Don't expect anything you bunch of sore losers.

I have to watch the episode of Juve's Netflix series in which they cover this game. Can't wait to see what kind of a pathetic story line they conjure up.

van I hope that when someone writes a cultural history of sports in our times, Juve fans discovering referee injustice in 2018 will be at least a delicious footnote.

I think you misunderstood me. Don't disagree with him getting kicked out. But while someone waving a bank note at the opposition fans seemed mostly hilarious before, now I see there's more truth behind that too.

Knew Real are no angels, but it seems to be getting worse and worse.

Rhizoid The Juventus - Real Madrid rivalry will always be a true classic in Champions League, right up there with Juventus - Man United.

I think there is no loss of respect from either side, and we saw this in two instances with Ronaldo's and Buffon's standing ovations, regardless of the circumstances.

I can bet you under any circumstance -> Ronaldo would've gotten booed and jeered at anywhere despite scoring a super goal | and had Gigi Buffon lost his shit like that at any other venue, he'd have been gotten a lot of stick by the opposition fans as he walked to the tunnel usually no different from any player that gets sent off in an away game.

They create so much toxicity that its unbearable to read ghat non sense of a medium

The problem starts when all the English absolute crap outlets "quote" El Mundo
El Mundo and Mundo Deportivo are two completely different newspapers. One is based in Madrid, the other in Barcelona.

El Mundo are based in Madrid and is one of Spain's biggest daily newspapers. El Mundo belongs to Unidad Editorial (just like MARCA) while Unidad Editorial are owned by RCS MediaGroup.

The president of RCS MediaGroup is Urbano Cairo. He owns 56% of RCS and he's also the president of Torino.

Florentino Pérez and Madrid have also changed quite a few of the radio hosts since the start of 2016-2017-season. The three major radio stations have all been switched around and Héctor Hernández (brilliant host at Onda Cero) has been moved by one of Florentino's favourites in José Ramón de la Morena.
