How it basically went down

Real Madrid’s UCL draw in a nutshell

What in the World was that Draw???

Let me get this straight. It’s the day of the biggest draw in the world of sports. And you mess the freakin’ pots up? HOW-I-I mean... Wow... just WOW... Then, you redo the whole draw. The results? You feed Atletico to Ronaldo again, and match Messi, Mbappe & Ramos against Real Madrid. I ‘d say you’d be forgiven if you thought this looks fishy. I’m not directly saying it was rigged or anything, but... Really?!?! It strikes everyone as odd, that something like this can be messed up. Oh well, the teams will have to deal with what they got in the final draw.

♫ Ain’t no use in complaining

When you’ve got a job to do

Spent my evenings down in the Champs League

And that’s when I met you yeah ♫

(to the tune of Bryan Adams’ “Summer of 69”)


And this looks plain wrong

Speaking of PSG and star players...

And a joke because... well, why not at this point

So... Opinions on our UCL R16 opponents?
