I think away goals were interesting, I bet people will feel nostalgic for it in a few years and hope for it to return.
Nothing nostalgic about failing to qualify to 2003 final vs milan and (can't remember the year) vs spurs with Adebayor's goal in ET. I'm so glad away goal is no longer a thing

Every club has examples of that though. Don't forget the reason why we made it to the semis that year to face Milan was because we beat Valencia on AWAY goals.

Damn depresing game considering that much talent in both teams
0-0 for 90minutes not single goal
Having Messi,Neymar,Mbappe,Benzema,Vinijr,Bale,Hazard.
Now days ChL games are so shit, no passion no nothing
10-15 years ago.. even When Porto vs Valencia was more interesting..
Btw Mbappe scored ala Ronaldo R9 goal.
But some people here call that Great Tactical Football.

How are you guys feeling about away goals rule being phased out? I personally think it takes away a bit from the tension.
I agree. It made it rarer for teams to be completely level on aggregate. That made ET less likely, which is usually a drag. It was also unique in football in creating situations where you could go from losing to winning in one moment. The rule made for some crazy ties.

Sofascore is as reliable as Tuttosport.

There will be draws on each progressing rounds, in CL never ever you'll see the potential opponenents until the final before R16.
İt's good then. Lol as if our further advancement is guaranteed

Huh, I remember there would be last draw for quarter final, this round has no protection like country protection (except political reason).

There's gonna be a new draw guys, stop making a fuss out of nothing. I'm loving how no one believes we can qualify and now everyone's like "ZOMG we gotta play those guys next" :lol:

Removing away goal rule = more games with extra time = more money
That's how it works for uefa.

The Champions League is a shit competition, if you can even call it a competition.

It is no coincidence that PSG and Manchester City always reach the latter stages of the competition despite having nonEuropean pedigree whatsoever.

But I guess the Champions League is all we have and Inter have to no doubt accept their bit-part role.

CL has been shit for years.

Marketing gimmick for gullible fools who think this is the only football worth watching.
