I'm still kinda digging the scenario where we win in Prague, Dortmund and Barcelona play to a draw, and we could knock Barcelona out with a win at the Meazza on the last match day. Toughest road? Yeah. Also the most thrilling road if we can pull it off.

I'd love to see this scenario.

That would make us dark horses to win it. I love it. Bringing another midfielder and Mertens and we are on a roll.

Hopefully Barca beat Dortmund and qualify, that's the best case scenario for us.

The last thing you want is for a fully motivated Barcelona with Messi, playing for CL survival in the last game of the group against us. If they beat Dortmund in their next game, they already qualify and top the group, so hopefully they won't be as motivated when they play us at the Meazza. Also they are barely hanging on at the top of the Liga table, with Real Madrid level on points with them, and loads of teams close behind, so it's likely if they beat Dortmund, they will want to rest some of the big players and use them in the league as they will have topped the group and put their focus where it matters.

All of this is a big IF though, because we need to beat Sparta away, and we couldn't even do that in our own back yard.

It's easy to predict. If we are out of form like against Dortmund, we are for sure out. But if we rested enough power and don't have too much injuries, i see a good chance.

The biggest problem at the moment: Politano is out for a while, which means we have only Esposito on the bench. We have no other choice, Esposito has to play, Lukaku and Lautaro are only humans.

Losing this match eventually costed us the qualification.

Team seemed to shit their pants under pressure, just like vs Barcelona. Anxiety and crap, is this something that can be coached? I guess it`s a mental attribute, you`re either top or not.
