I don't think anyone even noticed this game. It was put into the shadows by Chelsea vs PSG.
I was simulcasting both games. Once the red happened I knew Bayern was going to destroy Shakhtar...
Updating: Germany 14 x 1 Brazil.
Bayern's definitely the favorites in the Champions League to me! They have a more complete team compared to the other contenders and they play the best football. Barca looks like the only team that can stop them but it's only their front three that can cause some damage. Bayern's insane pressing can cancel them out by making sure the ball never gets to MSN.
I hope they draw PSG next. I want them out.
Bayern looking good for it. Favourites with Madrid no doubt, be interesting if they draw each other in the next round. Could be murder with Madrid on the ropes. If they draw each other later on though, maybe Madrid will bounce back and produce something like last year against them. I do love the Champions League!
I saw one of those football analysts from ESPN or Fox say to be careful with Shaktar, basically hinting at Shaktar grabbing the upset without wanting to look like a fool in case this happened, lol. Bayern smashed them and the analyst(forgot his name) is a fool, game was over after that penalty.
A major contrast to the 0-0 draw,
