Football - Leicester's Shakespearean Tragedy

Two dead rubbers in the Champions League tonight.

Napoli vs Real Madrid was shaping up well in the first half, but Ramos scored two headers in quick succession meaning the Italians need four. Napoli played so well in the first half and could easily have been ahead on away goals if Mertens's shot had slipped inside the post.

Arsenal blown away in the 2nd half again. This is getting even more embarrassing. Napoli were looking good and gave Real a hard time in the first half. Ramos just has a knack of scoring big goals though.

A capitulation on this level following the 'pool game is really not what Wenger needs. It seems he's lost his way, and cannot get back on track. I would say that this seems a good time to step down. 

Well, he really should have stepped down earlier. Now, however, it is hard to picture him going out while bringing success. More likely is further decline, thus eroding the groundwork he has laid down for this team over the last two decades. Makes me sad.

Yeah, Wenger has taken Arsenal as far as he can and the club are just stagnating, even regressing, now. He's done alot for the football club but his time is clearly up.

You kinda had to feel for Arsenal on that one. They were in the game (not in the competition, that was over after the first leg), until the penalty and red card for Koscielny. And Lewandowski was indeed fractionally offside. And they could have gotten a penalty earlier. Well, at least we got to see the obligatory Piers Morgan twitter meltdown. 

Of course that's no excuse for whatever Arsenal did after the penalty; similarities to football were merely coincidental. But the final score was really flattering for Bayern.

Cracking title by the way.  

Newcastle getting 7 points from a 3 game stretch away from home against top 6 teams is a right result.

If there's any team that can overcome a 4-0 deficit, it's Barca. PSG already a goal down and they have started poorly as well.

Both goals were so sloppy, PSG look awful. Think Barca could actually do it.

That goal is the killer. Cavani should have had a second just after that as well. Lucas Moura had a poor game. Di Maria should have started.

He's been injured, apparently.

ADM sure doesn't look like he is carrying an injury. He's really put himself about since coming on and should have had a goal too.

ETA. two goals in quick succession for Barca. We are in for a tense finish. Barca have done incredibly well to take this tie down to the wire.
