We will lose to top3 biggest favorites City, Real, Bayern imo. They are too good. Arsenal, Barca, Atletico would be 50-50.

So lets risk in our last match go all in , that might be a ticket for quarterfinals.

I want to draw a team from Milan's group. It doesn't matter Borussia, Newcastle or PSG. The reason is because some Milan fans believe that we would have been 3rd at max in their group, and our is a piece of cake.

Yes, absolutely terrible quality. Neither team knew how to defend, midfield was open field, no one stopped anyone from doing anything there. It was a total shitshow defensively by both teams. Attacking wasn't great either tho. :D
Well I would watch terrible football game like this every fucking day instead watching Cunteball champagne football.

It wouldn't change a thing. They would still spread the same bs.

It is very important to win our last league game, as topping the group would mean that we would most probably play against one of these teams:

(1) FC Copenhagen/Galatasary
(2) PSV Eindhoven/Lens
(3) Napoli/SC Braga (wont be Napoli in this stage, right?)
(4) Lazio/Ath Madrid (same as above if Lazio gets 2nd spot)
(5) PSG/NewCastle/Milan/Dortmund - the only real tough opponent on paper
(6) Leipzig
(7) probably Porto/Shakhtar

So, I guess it is crucial to top the group for a team like us.

Real Sociedad destroyed Villarreal away today, they will also come motivated. It's gonna be a real great game to watch that one.

Sociedad will taste some of Meazza roar soon. We underestimated them heavily in the first match, but now Limone knows their capacity and how a big threat they could be. So I expect a better approach by the team, and of course a win.

They outplayed us, annhilated us. Just by pure quality of Lautaro we made it back with a point.

But yeah, we will be prepared this time. I expect a close 1-0 to us.

If we win against Sociedad, we will avoid City, Arsenal, Bayern, Real, possibly Barca, Atletico and Dortmund for the next round.

That would leave us most likely with PSV, Copenhagen/Gala, Leipzig, PSG/Newcastle and possibly Porto.

These are the odds for CL winner:
City: 3.00
Bayern: 5.00
Madrid: 7.50
Arsenal: 8.00
PSG: 15.00
Barcelona: 15.00
Atletico: 21.00
Inter: 21.00
Borussia: 34.00

We are there in the TOP8. But Arsenal should have the same 21.00 imo, they have not done anything in CL in last years, so winning it from nowhere is very surprising.
And PSG/Barcelona... i don't know, they have the expensive players but we play better than them.

Arsenal have been one of CL favorites according to bookies from the start and i don't understand the logic behind iit. I guess they do it because EPL is the best league in the world and Arsenal finished runner up to treble winner City but it doesn't work like that. Arsenal haven't reached CL quarter finals since 2010. They have done well so far but they have been in an easy group. They're usually unreliable in Europe. Perhaps if they get lucky in the draw they could go far but i don't trust them right now.

Arsenal are hyped because of their good performance in EPL. PSG and Barca are hyped, because they are PSG and Barca.

Honestly it doesn't matter to me whom we get in the draw. I'm more worried about our situation with injuries rather than whom we face in the knockout phase of CL.

It would be cool if we bring in a decent striker in January transfer market. Having both Lautaro and Thuram injury-free, and keeping up with our momentum is an indicator that this team is good enough to defeat anyone.

But, I would love to get one of Premierleague teams, whether it is ManCity, Arsenal or ManUtd if they qualify.

Sounds like it time to put some money on inter.

Still don’t get Arsenal hype, I would put Atletico Barcelona and us higher than them
