Let’s be honest, you’re all here to talk about Barcelona vs Borussia Dortmund, and that’s okay. Who wouldn’t want a nice, neutral place to talk about two teams in crisis going at each other?

If you’re one of those weirdos that won’t won’t actually watch the aforementioned match, there are some other options: Liverpool and Napoli go up against each other as well, and Napoli are starting to fall apart at the seams — that game should be pretty entertaining. Meanwhile, RB Leipzig take on Benfica, and with the way Bundesliga clubs perform in Europe, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them choke away the game.
