Yes, he will be trouble but it is likely that they will able to go through to the next round. Yesterday, they didn't have a good result but they should be good enough to beat Lazio in the second leg with more than a goal margin.

Naa you need to play the “Barca” way in order to go there.

I’m thinking either Da Zerbi or the guy at Girona

The first half was insane with all the chances Bayern missed. Kimmich, Kane, and Sane all missed great chances.

And Tuchel is now out (at the end of the season).

Was watching Napoli-Barca and wondering wtf the studio was going crazy for. It was that Porto goal.

Went from being a perfectly fine result to a poor result in an instant. Those rushed clearances going nowhere were costly.

Can very easily turn it around at home and make that goal meaningless. They’ll sit deep but they’ll have plenty of pressure to absorb—I don’t think they’ll be able to, but we’ll see.

I’m guessing I’m the only one who sat through that drab ninety minutes—the referee was awful. Three to four Porto players would tumble down at corners, their keeper was being ran into by his own players, yet Arsenal players were being lectured.

The ball was only in play for 51.7% of the match. Just…wow.

Yikes. People will be wanting to position Porto as some great underdog, but I'm not interested in dog **** football like that.

That game also had the most fouls of any CL games this season. Rice was booked at around 70 seconds, and set the entire tone. Pretty much from that point on Porto knew they had the referee in their hands in terms of buying everything they did. I was honestly just as annoyed with coming home from work after avoiding the result for hours, and then sitting through that game only to see that result. The 1-0 would be easier to swallow if it didn't come at the end of one of the worst matches I've seen in years.

It's not an excuse, as Arsenal played poorly, but most teams will when the ball is only in play 51% of the time and you're used to playing football. Plus, Arsenal are great at winning second balls and duels—you can't do that when the referee is blowing this whistle for contact the entire game, meaning there are no second balls.

Basically, the referee had far too big of an impact on the match itself, and it was exactly what Porto wanted.

Arsenal should've played better, but I'm confident we can beat them in London. Arsenal supporters lost their **** after the Rens loss only for us to them beat them 6-0 at home. Not the exact situation here, but a goalless away result is no longer the issue it once was.
