Ugh.. I missed the Osimhen goal.. Was it any good?
If ter Stegen played for Inter, you'd have 3 pages worth of negative reactions on that

Napoli can pass to the next round only if they get shit tons of luck, nothing else.

Love to see Porto shut mighty Premier League team, I guess now our last years duel at this stage wasn't just 'an easy pot'

I've been saying it to friends since the draw happened, we would absolutely batter this Arsenal.

Watched 70 mins of barca-napoli regret it massively :ROFLMAO:
pft haha I saw Porto-Arsenal
Porto sat back the entire game like they were up 1-0 at home
Arsenal tried and got nullified, 0 shots on target.
Porto goes and grabs a cltuch nice goal at the last second
Probably the most boring game I have seen in a couple of years

It will be funny if best league in the world ends up with just City in quarter finals.

Looked into a couple of Arsenal sites saying Porto employed "the dark arts" eg. falling over, diving couple with refs falling for it, tbf a couple of guys said that Arsenal were lazy with their passing and generally uninspired in their execution on the attack.

And this was the 4th CL favorite according to bookies since September :lol: :lol: :lol:
In what fucking galaxy would Arsenal be considered a top 4 favourite for any European trophy much less Champions League? They’ve always been shit in Europe.

That's how betting odds work. More people betting on one side dealer will reduce their numbers. How they earn the money.

Arsenal, and in general PL, is just too much of fans attraction, and they have fat pocket. I am pretty sure had ManUtd been here their odd is more favorite than ATM for instance.

Arsenal also have the second-most valuable squad per Transfermarkt. Which, I should stress, is not TM saying they're the 2nd best team in the world, just that the player values on TM's inferred, well, transfer market, say that if Arsenal sold every player on their squad, they would expect to receive a little over €1B for their sales. Obviously there's a strong bias towards players in their early-to-mid 20s in such a valuation, it's why it's far from a standalone tool to measure the overall quality of a team, but yeah, that's how much talent is supposed to be there right now.

And they didn't get a single shot on net today against the 3rd placed team from Portugal. Good job, good effort.

Do people remember how pissed Conceicao was after Porto-Inter 0-0 FT whistle and them getting eliminated. Yeah he made a promise that night that they'll be back and Arsenal out of all teams received this anger.

2nd leg prediction. They will defend as well as today and knock them out!! Just like we did to them . :)

How's that? No team can rest under the pretense of an away goal, they need to score more.
And how's that goin? All 8 matches that were played(including ours match) were pain in the ass to watch.

Yeah Porto, a piece of cake for Arsenal fan, they’re actually their true nemesis, skilful and knowing how to slow opponent down.

They still can overturn this but this shows how overrated they are. As I said before the team I want to meet the most this round is Arsenal, second hand Man City.

" They play the lowest standard of football"

:ROFLMAO: :yao:

Get rekt really! Porto played by their strength and the goal is to progress not do flashy wannabe brazilian hotstuff like Saka is doing every damn weekend in Premier League.

ridiciolous defending from martinez at the osihmen goal. And how on earth is it possible that this 16 years old yamal guy is playing from start, in a champions league game? Barca is getting desperate of finding a new Messi, or maybe this guy is really jesus christ of football
