footy musings from a (relative) newbie

So, it will be Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid vs. Chelsea.

I’ll admit: these matchups do have me intrigued.

  • Will poor, sad Thibaut Courtois get to play for Atletico against Chelsea – the team that loaned him to Atleti in the first place? (Probably)
  • How will Real vs. Bayern play out after their last epic semi-final two years ago? (Hopefully without penalties!)
  • How far will Jose Mourihno get trying to gaslight Diego Simeone? (My guess is not very)
  • Will Atleti make history and get to the final 40 years after they last made it? (Possibly)
  • Or will we get a Chelsea (Mou) vs. Bayern (Pep) final (Ugh! Anything but that!)
  • Who says football isn’t soap opera, eh?

    In Europa League, it’s Benfica vs. Juventus and Sevilla vs. Valencia (all-Spanish affair alert!) Juventus is winning this, right?

    I’m not willing to predict the Champions League winner because at this level, there’s very little between the teams, which means the games will be decided by the smallest of margins and factors I can’t even begin to think of.
