Well, that's why they can't and won't get many games. This was supposed to be the chance for some of them to stand up and be counted, but they completely failed. They never looked interested at all.

It was never going to be easy for Arsenal Olympiakos are not bad when they play at home

Did olympiakos go through to the knock out stages or not?

Nope, Marseille scored two goals in the last 5 mins to beat Dortmund 2-3. So they get flushed down to the Europa League.

I feel like an idiot but I always have a hard time figuring out offside when it bounces off the post or the goalkeeper like on that last goal. Shouldn't that have been offside? What if it was the same play but it bounced off the keeper instead, offside then? Appeciated, thanks.

I think the argument is that when the ball was originally headed, the player was just about onside. If he was behind the defenders before the ball was headed toward goal, then he'd be offside.

if the player was onside, the last time someone from their team touched the ball then it is onside, whether it hit the post or the keeper it doesnt matter

Of course the same applies for offsides; if someone kicks the ball from far away while you are offside and it bounces off the post, and you recieve the volley when you are back onside, then you are still offside.

The only thing that matters is your position the last time a teammate touched the ball
