@eli1601 Thanks for BC 😉

Burnley123 · 41-45, M
I don't support either team but I hope Liverpool win. I like Klopp and I have less reasons to dislike Liverpool than any of the other big clubs.

If I had to pick a winner... I'd narrowly go with Madrid.

I think Liverpool has a better team and would finish above them in a league competitiion. Madrid have the big game x-factor though. They've survived from losing positions in every knock-out stage. You could view it as them being lucky to be in the final or just having tremendous resilience in big games.. Maybe a bit of both?

It will be close and either team could do it. I watched Liverpool's last game and they did look tired but still had enough to beat a decent Wolves team.

I hope I'm wrong about Madrid winning. Either way, I think it will be a close game with lots of twists and plenty of goals.

@Burnley123 Im a Rangers supporter. I think Liverpool were below par against Wolves I think they'll be spot on tonight 2-0
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@GovanDUNNY If Liverpool have the energy to play well for 90 mins, they will win. We will see.
GovanDUNNY · 36-40, M
@Burnley123 They have had a week off so should be right on
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
Courtois... what a save.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@Kwek00 He's maybe the world's best keeper. Few would have kept Mane out.
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
@Burnley123 He had an insane year... and Real really needed him in the champions league too...
But what save for a guy so tall. Quick to the ground ...
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
Mam of the match is Courtois or Courtois.
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
🤷‍♂️ Just hope it's going to be a good game.
Not one of those turling games where no one wants to loose... like the Europa League finals this year.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@Kwek00 Vincent Kompany is heavily linked with the vacant coaching job at Burnley.

How do you rate his record at Anderlecht?
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
@Burnley123 It was okay Burnley... but it wasn't super either.

He's really focussed on playing like Man. City... While I think a coach his job should also be looking at the quality inside the team. But yeah, he had ups and downs. But the ups were really good. It's not that he's a bad coach.

Anyway, I'm off... not sure what your opinion is, but I think this game wasn't the most exciting. And the best player was probably the goalie.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@Kwek00 yes
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
Congrats to Reap Madrid.

For Liverpool a story of what ifs. Without playing their best, they still had the best chances.

Madrid are nowhere near one of the great historic teams but they have a great keeper and a skill for scoring with few chances.
thatscottishguy · 22-25, M
@Burnley123 Most of that is because of Salah though😂. Others did get shots off but only Mo looked a threat tonight. Sometimes that's enough but don't think they can make out they deserve more with that.

Michael Owen crying on bt trying to say they're the best team in Europe despite not winning the league or this is hysterical.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@thatscottishguy lol. I still think Liverpool and city are 'technically' better teams. In a league comp, both would finish higher. It's about doing enough in the final though (not hypotheticals) and Madrid are masters. My prediction ended up being true.
thatscottishguy · 22-25, M
@Burnley123 Yeah everybody thinks that. Just stupid to argue when Liverpool failed to win either.
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
i am a liverpool fan and klopp is fielding a very strong side and substitute bench but it will be an interesting game and real madrid are a dangerous side as manchester city found to there cost . i do not think for one minute liverpool will have it there own way [burnley123]
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@smiler2012 I hope you guys do it.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
Is that the most 50/50 var call of all time?

I have no idea whether I'd give that. No wonder it took so long.

Liverpool let off either way after Allison's mistake.

Liverpool dominant but Madrid will feel agreived.
FreeLilly · 16-17, F
@Burnley123 that was definitely not an easy call.. and no matter what decision people will complain..
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
Bunch of idiots showed up without tickets and are fucking it up for everyone.
Just hope no one gets crushed in the crowd.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@Kwek00 Unfortunately, English fans and Liverpool fans in particular have a history of this.
monte3 · 70-79, M
I am no to nervous to watch the rest of the game. ☹️ I am recording so I can watch t(e second half, if Liverpool wins.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@monte3 It's all good. See you soon Monte.👍
monte3 · 70-79, M
I would be overjoyed with a Liverpool win. They are the least annoying of the big teams.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@monte3 Agreed lol. I think the same.
Samhainn · 22-25, M
I want to know what's going on outside the stadium; why are fans being tear-gassed?😱
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@Samhainn We will find out. Early reports say a load of fans without tickets tried to bypass security.
monte3 · 70-79, M
I what hey was that no goal call on Benzema? I love it of course but don’t understand it.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@monte3 It's hard to explain.

Benzema was offside positionally. That doesn't matter if a Liverpool man plays the ball to him. A deflection would still mean Benzema is offside because there is no deliberate Liverpool action and it still counts as Benzema being offside from a Madrid pass.

So the debate is about whether it's a deflected pass by the Madrid player (goal disallowed for offside) or whether it was a miss-hit sliding clearance by Liverpool that got the ball to Benzema (legal goal).

The incident was neither and both. It's such a tough call.

Don’t think Liverpool will do it not for lack of trying

i hope livepool wins.. just because i like Klopp so much...
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
Painfull moment for the Pool.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@Kwek00 A goal against the run of play but to nobody's surprise.
Kwek00 · 36-40, M
@Burnley123 Another good save by Courtois... not as spectaculair as the last one, but really nescesary
thatscottishguy · 22-25, M
Whatever happens now another game overshadowed by fan behaviour and how terribly unprepared they were at the stadium to handle it. Still no reports of fans drinking out the toilets yet so an improvement on the Europa league final there.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@thatscottishguy Which club had their fans do that? 😇
thatscottishguy · 22-25, M
@Burnley123 I think you know 😂
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
BASTARDS REAL MADRID HAVE SCORED
GovanDUNNY · 36-40, M
thatscottishguy · 22-25, M
Finally. What a joke that was. Hoping for Madrid but not too bothered. If Bale comes on Robertson better go right for his ankles
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@thatscottishguy Charming 🤣
thatscottishguy · 22-25, M
@Burnley123 Haha don't care. Robertson should be stripped of the captaincy next week if he doesn't.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@thatscottishguy Unlike Robertson, Bale doesn't care much about his club. I doubt Bale will come on. If he he does, well Robertson can't tackle a deck chair.
iamelijah · 26-30, F
Liverpool 2-1 Read Madrid. I don't want to be overconfiident but RM seemed good too. Liverpool need strong defense. That tricky offside. Phew.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
At half time Liverpool the better despite only playing well in patches. Madrid crap but their one shot was the most borderline if disallowed goals.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
Delay to kickoff because of fan trouble outside the stadium.

Sigh
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
Liverpool dominating but no goal after a Courtois wonder save.
Samhainn · 22-25, M
Hmm, f-all is happening at the moment
Havesomefun · 56-60, M
Who loses will blame the pitch
Havesomefun · 56-60, M
Liverpool
GovanDUNNY · 36-40, M
@V00doo beautiful Liver bird
