    Lucio brought down Kaka in the area, who promptly converted the penalty....

    I hope you are not suggesting it was a penalty,it was a perfect tackle and a ridiculous decision.

    Just out of interest Romafan,do you get behind Italian teams in Europe? Or are you bitter like me supporting any team other than ones from your own country?

    I'm only reading UFEA.com updates. It looked like Lucio was booked...

    Generally, for Juve/Inter/Milan/Lazio I would automatically back their opponents. With Milan now, not so much....At this point I'm trying to keep my 100% prediction rate going...[​IMG]

    +1

    Glad they equalized; hell of an effort from van Buyten. I thought Bayern was clearly outplayed, though - what does it say about Milan that they gave this one away? Is Bayern better than I/we thought, or did they just have some good luck?

    Dominating performance from Liverpool, and it was a lot of fun to watch; I think The Guardian overreacted a bit with an article subtitled "All English clubs should strut through Europe the way Liverpool did in Eindhoven", though. PSV just aren't that strong a side...

    1-0 down and Scholes off with Roma turning the screw.It looks like its bye bye to the Champions League for another season...Looks like the Roma fans are living up to their reputation,although its unclear what is going on.

    Remember Gary Lineker: "Football is a simple game; 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans win."

    It's been a regular penalty. Every tackling in the penalty area can cause this.

    Disappointed we couldn't keep a clean sheet [​IMG] , but will take the result. I fear the away goal will haunt us. Slipped off from work and arrived in the 10th minute. Was watching ESPN 2 w/ no sound, but didn't detect any signs of crowd trouble. Ronaldo is certainly a handful. Great control and speed. I can take the unwrap-the-lollipop move, but those karate-chop arms of his are completely annoying - I'd like to chop them off [​IMG]

    Return leg will be fun, if a bit nervewracking!
