Poor referee so far, allowing constant niggle fouls without a card.

That big sheet if paper Barcelona keep putting over deep cracks isn't lasting very long the more time goes on. I don't even think the Dave's could have dismantled the club as quickly as their board has.

On they're out now. There's no way Juve will capitulate at the Camp Nou like PSG did and they won't get a ****ing bent referee on a back hander again this time round either

They need to buy some decent defenders, don't rate the goalkeeper either and their midfield 3 aren't good enough anymore.

Wouldnt be surprised to see Dybala there in a couple of seasons...

But they definitely need to shore up their defence

Pique and Umtiti are class. They look so bad because they've been forced to pay this weird lop sided 3-4-3 because they can't control the midfield anymore. They could do with a Lb and definitley a RB but they're main problem is midfield. The irony of Thiago looking like one of the best CM's in world football lately at Bayern whilst they spend 40m on Andre Gomes. It makes me grateful for Sully's recruitment in comparison.

Umtiti is poor IMO, he looks uncomfortable on the ball and fails to track his man far too often. Pique is on the decline, he looks like he has lost confidence.

Juve defending a 3-0 lead is different gravy to PSG in last round. No way will Juve surrender and hopefully there will be no dodgy penalties.

Leicester City fans 'charged at by Spanish police'

Leicester City fans were charged at and subjected to what appeared to be an unprovoked attack from Spanish police, a BBC journalist has said.

BBC correspondent Phil Mackie said he witnessed the scenes in Madrid, where Leicester will play Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final.

He said he met supporters who had been left bruised after being hit on the head, arms and knees.
The Spanish press reported that eight Leicester fans were arrested.

Some fans were hit with batons and bundled into police vans, the correspondent added.

Mr Mackie told 5 live the trouble happened in the Plaza Mayor, in Madrid, where Foxes fans had been told they could gather.

He said: "I got down [to Plaza Mayor] and found a number of young Leicester fans with bruises, who had been hit on the head, arms, knees and a couple of them dazed. Some of them drunk as well.

"As I was talking to them there was a charge. Police officers just charged a group of Leicester fans who were, as far as I could tell, just walking past and chatting to each other.

"Three of them were pushed to the floor and hit with batons and bundled into the back of vans and taken away."

Aaron Richard Howells, who was in the square, said there was a lot of good-natured singing from supporters, but some younger fans got too close to police with their chanting.

He said: "We [witnessed] police targeting groups of people, smashing beers from tables, and even them throwing chairs towards the fans, as well charging with batons and riot shields."

However, another supporter who was in the square said some ticketless fans told her they liked to make a nuisance of themselves and "expected trouble later".

They are up against a team with so many players who have seen it all so many times on the world stage and who are not going to buckle at the first sign of pressure

I watched the last half hour of the Barcelona game. The Juventus defence was superb, keeping their lines and shape perfectly. Their discipline was a joy to behold. Something which surprised me was Messi, Aguero and co. weren't flinging themselves to the floor in the Juve penalty area all the time. Perhaps they did their homework on the referee knew he wouldn't buy it?

Or simply Aguero doesn't play for Barca.
