Liverpool was playing at 10% of their power against us because they were saving their energy. Bayern has no such compunctions and the risk that they put 7 or 8 goals past us is very real. If that happens it could have a demoralizing effect on our season.
You don't need to fabricate the reality to turn Inter into the punch bag of the stronger sides.

Nobody play at 10% of their power in the KO stage of CL. Get real.

Bayern doesn't has any striker.

That's what most people thought when they sold Lewandowski. But so far they look even more dangerous. Lewa is a world class forward and he was the reference point of their attack for almost a decade but without him their attack looks very fluid and a lot closer to the football Nagelsmann wants to play. Always on the move, unpredictable and hard to defend.

Yeah I'm sure City and Bayern were giving their 100% against Sporting and Salzburg.

Like some other member mentioned, the biggest problem isn't going toe to toe with the big boys, for sure we can put up a good fight, it is the aftermath, serie a performance, but this year we have better depth as long as our back 3 stays healthy.

Anyway, with Simone I am more looking forward to it.

rather just use our 2nd string and youth players. Finish 3rd play Europa league do the same exact thing. Sell the youth and 2nd string players. Win the league.

Bayern is 1st place now its do we care enough to try and knock out Barca or fine with 3rd place. As long as we aren't in last place I am fine either way. We just can't have the insane idea that we have a shot at making it to the 3rd round of champions league or even farther.

Just be league champions and call it a day.

Barcelona has weak both of defence flanks.
Raphinha is enough for their "weak" defence flanks to not matter that much. I'd worry about our defence flanks. If Inter is at their best, I expect crazy games, especially against Barca

What is this rubbish? We wasted so many chances to go ahead in the 1st leg at the beginning of the game. We were all over them.

And we beat them at Anfield. Not many clubs can say that. Not in the champions league. Gimme a break with that “10% of their power” bullshit. If any respectable manager saw that his players were being lazy af up on a 2-0 aggregate, he’d lose his shit.

So it's sdvroot, crzd and jane who aren't giving Barcelona their due. I believe we can beat them, but only if we are truly at our best. Otherwise it will be the same old story. It's been more than 10 years since we last beat them and in that season we lost twice against them and had a goalless draw at San Siro. We were better and did better against them back then, now we are just pathetic

We all saw Simone chickened out from going for the 2nd goal. He was content with the 0:1 win, to save face

Great draw. You either play with the best or you don't play at all. Will be al least 4 matches to be excited about.
