    The first 3 goals from Barcelona were world class today in their 4-0 win against PSV Eindhoven. Goal 4 was good, but 1-3 were phenomenal. Check out the highlights if you get the chance.

    Apparently Messi's right foot is also pretty good

    Just another dab of magic, perfection from Messi. Hat trick #42 with the most #8 in champions league history, incredible. Dembeles solo effort was very well placed. the flick pass by rakutic for Messi's 2nd was brilliant. Lozano doing well for PSV.

    Fantastic game for my reds 3-2 over PSG. Last gasp, firmino comes through after throwing away the 2-0 lead

    I agree...instant classic. Firmino with the finish with one eye. Exciting match to watch...great way to start the CL!

    Set up by yet another tackle from a hustling Milner. What a competitor. 32 years old and still hustling to win balls back after already busting his hump for 90 minutes.

    I had to watch the match quietly at work and couldn't hear the commentary. What was the deal with his eye? He went into the match with one eye shut?

    Milner is a beast and Man of the Match in my book.

    Real Madrid lose and ManU gets the draw against Valencia. Interesting day in Europe...Mourinho out now? Bayern getting drawn against Ajax is an upset, but not entirely unbelievable.

    That goal given up by RM looked just like my DD's U-little team learning to build out from the back.

    PSG is not a big surprise to me. Playing in the subpar Ligue 1 competition day in and day out is not a good recipe for Champions League success.

    I agree with the league they play in but they are filled with great players. It's not as though they have the toughest group and thought Liverpool would be their real test.

    Ajax... probably comes down to them and Bayern to see who wins the group. I'm a bit bummed that PSV hasn't shown up.

    Ajax has a tough defense and a beautiful style...nice to see them making some noise in Champions League. Not unexpected in a relatively weak group.

    Ajax has done relatively well in getting to the next round in CL. Especially now that most Dutch teams are unable to keep their best players. I too like the Dutch style of play.

    My grandparents lived about 10 min from where ADO plays and my Dads middle name, Willem, has a Dutch club with the same name. That all said I've always been more of a PSV follower.

    It would be really great if the Eredivisie could retain their top players and become more of a player in the CL. The way it stands they are a poormans version of the Bundesliga...
