Re: Champions League/Europa League 2019/20

Toni Kroos completely owned by Idrissa Gueye last night in Paris. Madrid totally outplayed with Bale, Hazard and Rodriguez anonymous. They look totally f ucked and can only be a matter of time before Mourinho has to answer the bat signal.

Jobi - Greatest goal never scored?
