Who you have?  I'm going Juventus.  Best defense on the planet and the best keeper for my money.  Also, hate Real.  Any predictions?  2-1 Juvy tomorrow for me.

What an amazing match so far.  2 amazing goals.   Damn this is great stuff.

Mandzukic with an absolute beauty of a goal. Navas went after it with the wrong hand but he probably wouldn't have been able to keep it out regardless.

I love soccer but have yet to invest the time to understand the game 100%. Why on earth does Juventus let CR7 just run free? Someone help me out here. Yeah, dude is GOAT maybe, but the second goal he got ... no one was even keeping pace with him. He just straight up ran forward and kicked it in. Why did the nearest defender watch the ball and not GOAT?

A large part of Ronaldos genius is being at the perfect place at the perfect time.  Add his amazing finishing talent and you got one of the best ever.

But, what would happen if a team stuck someone on him. Like the way teams spy Cam or we used to spy Vick. Would it hurt a defense that much to put one man on him the entire time? I mean, the dude close to him had his back turned. He had no idea what CR7 was even doing. That seems crazy to me. Same with his first goal. He passed, ran up, NO ONE even challenged his spot and he got the pass back.

You can't play man to man in soccer with the way the ball is played around the pitch. What makes Ronaldo great asides from his physical abilities is his ability to be in the right place at the right time and anticipate where there is going to be space so his teammates can find him.

All credit to Madrid, they thoroughly outplayed Juve in the 2nd half. Ronaldo was lethal, Marcelo is the best left back in the world, and Dybala was a nonfactor out there. Sergio Ramos is a great player but an absolute c***.

I still can't believe how arguably the 5 best players in the world all play for Real or Barcelona. Something about taxes and TV rights, but still ... seems so unfair to the lesser La Liga squads.
