from yesterday's Champions League action. AC Milan and MF Gennaro Gattuso are not having the best of days vs Tottenham, so Gattuso throws a tantrum.
...and this was just the start of it. What a cheeky little bastard.
In other CL play, all-time leading Euro scorer Raul ruins my Valencia prediction as Schalke 04 gets the away draw. Then I call the draw in the Spurs W over Milan, and after a late Ibra goal is nixed for a foul...an 0-2 start to the Knockout Stage for me. I do have Spurs to advance, tho, so that looks nice.
Today: the big match everyone's anticipating...Barcelona visits the Emirates to face Arsenal. Should be a cracker. Barca has not lost in something like 350 consecutive matches, so I'm laying the odds with my squad to advance after 2 legs.
I'm also taking Shakhtar Donetsk to advance past Roma, looking at a draw in the 1st leg in Italy (based on a hunch from a pal).
