    It was scary what happened to Dortmund. Glad there were no serious injuries.

    Bayern in deep trouble. Picked a wrong time to have Lewey and Hummels hurt and then the red card. Probably the worst I have seen them in the 2nd half of that game for awhile. At least, Lewey back tomorrow and no Gareth Bale for Madrid. Anything helps. Need 2 goals and Neuer to be an absolute beast tomorrow.

    What a terrible officiated game today. Bayern got screwed so bad.

    Vidal got a 2nd yellow on straight bullshit.

    Casemiro for real should have been red carded 2x today but the refs refused to make the correct call.

    On top of that, both of real goals in et should have been disallowed.

    Major screw job. The fix was no doubt in.

    Bayern was clearly the better team but the refs robbed them.

    I agree totally. Lewandowski breakaway too...not offsides. Marcelo kept him onside. That probably would have been a goal and on the road with the aggragate...it is like 2 goals. Killer call there. What is the deal with Casmeiro? I saw at least 4 cases where he should have got yellowed.

    Bitter pill to swallow. A red card is the worst possible thing. It lasts for the rest of the game. You really have no hope. Both games they got red carded, but this game undeserved. I was hoping to get to penalty kicks with Neuer.

    These refs seem determined to male sure real and barca advances. They screwed psg vs barca with a lot of bs as well. Really a damn shame

    Oh yeah, PSG got robbed, phantom penalties in the box on PSG. They want Messi vs Ronaldo. Interesting tomorrow what happens with Juventus Barca. I think Juventus is too good though.

    Same. Can't see them losing by 3+ goals with that defense. My guess is Barca win 2-1.

    Juventus really shut them down defensively. I think they win it all.

    Man, Bayern took it on the injury front too here recently. Neuer has a broken foot now. Season over. Against Mainz, they won't have Neuer, Lewendowski, Hummels, Boetang, Martinez, probably at a minimum. German Cup semifinal on Wednesday. See who makes it on the pitch then.

    AS long as the refs don't give freebies like last year when Ramos was gifted an offside goal.

    Was last year when they refs refused to end the game because they wanted Madrid to tie the game or was that their previous finals?

    2014. 5 minutes of 2nd half injury time where Ramos equalized. Simeone lost his mind over that. He was hounding the ref in et and in ot over that. Madrid got a gift that year, and again in 2016 final with Ramos' offside goal too. They are already good enough, do they really need biased refs also. I think this year Atletico takes them down although I really don't like either team, actually I don't like Griezmann as he is a Bayern and German National Team nemesis. A real thorn in my teams side!

    Really enjoyed el clasico yesterday.

    Was it me or were there like 3-5 missed offsides calls for Real Madrid?

    Great game. Nice to see Madrid get a red card too...one game too late for me though.
