1st leg of the Semis and Bayern and Real drew in Germany 2-2. Well played game and they both had their chances. Overall Bayern was the better side but now they go to Spain having to get the W.

 

Dortmund hosts PSG today.

Crazy that there could be an all Bundesliga Champions League final that doesn't even include the best team in the Bundesliga this year.

Was flying yesterday so didn't get to see the match. Too bad Dortmund won. But I have faith in PSG at home.

PSG hosts Dortmund today down 1-0. Still like PSG being at home but they'll need to bring their A game.

 

Real hosts Bayern tomorrow and at 2-2 the hosts are the favorites. I think they win but how cool would a final be with Mbappe vs Kane!!

Halfway there, thanks to Dortmund being saved by the post four times, including twice in the final minutes. The final xG in that match was 3.22 for PSG vs .77 for Dortmund. Guess they're the team of destiny.

 

Also seems crazy that Dortmund is only 5th in the Bundesliga right now, the very last qualifying spot for next year, though at least they are in no danger of dropping out.

Woo hoo. Thomaassss Tiuchel's Bayern side bounced out. Great game and the last 5 minutes of regulation was really good stuff. Expect Tuchel to get fired at seasons end.

No surprise in the final. Most pundits put the line at 2-0 Real and that's exactly what happened. Now we gotta wait 5 more months for UCL to return. But we do have COPA coming soon!!!

Don’t get why Copa and Euro Cup are being played at the same time but I assume there is a reason

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

Its really the only window available.

 

1. Players needed a short break after long club season.

2. National team camps to train prior to the the tournaments.

3. Olympics also happening in July/August.

4. Then training camps for next club seasons start late July.
