    PSG: 3 mixed brazilians, 1 black defensive middlefielder, 7 whites

    barcelona: 2 mixed south americans, 9 whites, mostly spanish

    juventus: 1 mestizo, 10 whites, 9 italians (but i still hate them, they put the white players in important matches and then they hype pogba: why doesn't he play in big matches if he's so good? he's young but mature already, blackks are not going to mature past his age)

    bayern munchen: 1 black, 1 black brazilian, and 1 brazilian mixed player, then 8 whites (including ribery)

    Ibrahimovic goal was offside. What is the point to the extra official if he can't spot an offside from a few metres away? Messi off with a hamstring injury. Matuidi yellow card means he'll miss the second leg.:wave:

    Ugh. Matuidi gets a deflected goal at the end. Alaba also scored with the help of a deflection in the Bayern match. A bit disappointing given how few blacks were playing tonight.

    also it was disapointing to see ibrahimowicz score on an obvious offside, otherwise he was bad
    but the match was over once barcelona and messi scored that away goal
    barcelona stopped playing and messi even came out (i think he was not really injuried, he just didn't want to play against violent players who had something to prove while he knew that his team already did the job)

    Benzema finally scored in a big match. He did well to trap the ball before scoring but the black defender, Eboue, messed up by letting it get to Benzema in the first place. Eboue seemed surprised it got past Ronaldo, who was jumping for the header.

    Edit: Just looking at the replay of Real's second goal there were three defenders, two black, plus the goalie against two Real forwards, yet Benzema ended up alone with the ball with a free shot on goal from the six yard box. Very bad defending.

    a big match? it reminds me of last season when he scored against apoel the club from cyprus
    benzema is an expert at scoring against exotic teams, then against the big teams he does nothing (no goal, no assist last year in 180 minutes against bayern munchen, no goal and no assist this year against dortmund and manchester united)
    one day i'll do the breakdown of the teams he has scored against in champions league for real madrid: auxerre (3) the very bad ajax, the very bad version of lyon,apoel nicosia, CSKA moscow, and now galatasaray
    the only big name he has scored against is manchester city this year, but they still finished dead last behind ajax, the punchingball

    galatasaray seems very weak

    True, but they've had three or four half decent scoring opportunities, one of which was very good, but Drogba sliced it high and wide on his left foot. I wouldn't rule out them scoring but Madrid should also score again given how porous Galatasaray's defence is.

    As predicted another Real Madrid goal due to poor defending. There was no marking on the third goal by Higuain.

    BTW our commentators are saying if Nani got a red card for his challenge in the last match Benzema should've got one too for his high boot tonight. I think the inconsistency of refereeing and UEFA appeal decision-making is what is so annoying.

    higuain celebrated his goal a lot
    he silenced the idiots saying that unlike benzema, he couldn't score in champions league
    when you score against teams from the spanish league, you can score against exotic teams in champions league , that's what benzema does
    but higuain has done something that benzema hasn't done so far in champions league: he was decisive in a very important and difficult match, against manchester united in the last round when he qualified real madrid with his cross for ronaldo

    arsenal should be playing against real madrid, not galatasaray, but they didn't take champions league seriously
    they sent a B team ( scezny, meade vermaelen squillaci jenkinson, coquelin ramsey rosicky, oxlade chamack gervinho, and akpom, anghsa, anga on the bench) to play the last match of the groupstage against olympiakos, so they lost and finished 2nd to schalke 04

    they should have finished easily 1st, then they would have faced galatasaray
    instead they faced bayern munchen (and were close to create a big surprise in the 2nd leg)

    The other day I asked what the point was to the officials behind the goal line because they never call anything. Well, tonight that all changed as an official spotted a Newcastle hand ball from a corner that resulted in Benfica scoring a penalty. That's the first time I've seen the goal line official have an impact on a match.

    don't you think that the refereeing is better in the europa league than in the champions league?

    Good play between Dortmund and Malaga (almost all-white teams on both sides) : the end of the match was just unbelievable. Two offside goals were unnoticed though and both of them were scored by black players (the Brazilian disease one more time).

    I wasn't interested in the other match between Galatasaray (a Turkish team has nothing to do in a European competition) and the Real Madrid (which even without Benzema starting had 6 non-Whites on the field at the beginning of the match), but the Galatasaray seems to have caused trouble to the Real winning 3:2, it will be interesting to see how the Real will play at the next step.The two goals were scored by Ronaldo who is currently three goals ahead of Messi in the goals ranking.

    The offside rule is a joke again. It is impossible to call it without replay.


    It looked liked Malaga had 2 blacks playing and a few South Americans, but more white Euros than I thought.

    The Arab owner blames racism after Malaga's defeat. If you don't like something call it racism.

    A black is given a goal when he is offside and that is racism. Why don't all these Arabs and blacks stay in their own country then they wouldn't have to worry about racism.

    [h=1]Malaga owner blames racism for Champions League exit[/h]
    Malaga owner Sheikh Abdullah Al-Thani called for Uefa to investigate and claimed his side's dramatic Champions League defeat at Dortmund was "an injustice and racism."
    Dortmund scored twice in stoppage-time to complete a stunning 3-2 win and move into the last four.
    But Felipe Santana's winner appeared offside and Qatari owner Al Thani believes his side should have won.
    He said on Twitter: "I'm sorry to go out this way, injustice and racism."
    [h=2]Dortmund's amazing comeback[/h]
    • It was the first time a team needing to score two extra-time goals to triumph in the Champions League has done so since Manchester United in the 1999 final
    • Dortmund remain the only unbeaten team in this year's competition
    • The last team to win the Champions League without losing a match was Manchester United in 2008



    Al-Thani, of the Qatari Royal Family, was named owner of Malaga in June 2010 after the 53-year-old bought the Spanish club.
    A series of off-the-field financial problems mean Malaga are banned from European competition for one campaign when they next qualify.
    Al-Thani added: "This is not football, but racism and clear of all.
    "I hope to open a thorough investigation [by] Uefa regarding the Spanish club [going] out in this way."
    Malaga coach Manuel Pellegrini said: "Football is an act that involves many factors.
    "The third goal was an offside goal and there were all kinds of elbows and punches."
    After the first leg in Spain ended goalless, Malaga were minutes away from a place in the Champions League semi-finals when substitute Eliseu put them 2-1 up, also from an offside position.
    But Marco Reus and then Santana struck for the German side in added time to send them through.
    Malaga striker Roque Santa Cruz - who is on loan from Manchester City - said: "We're still trying to come to terms with what happened.
    "We were four minutes away from the semis. There is huge disappointment in the dressing room. We had the tie in our hands."

    i'm very sad because once again a champions league match was decided on a refereeing mistake
    malaga was my favourite team in the champions league so i'm very sad to see them get out like that, and they won't be able to get in champions league for the next 4 years
    dortmund last goal was a disgrace, 4 players were clearly offside when they sent the ball in (malaga played the offside trap) then santana was on the goal line when there was a shot so he was offside, i didn't even need a replay to see it

    before the match, a turkish (always ahaed when it's about corruption) referee said that UEFA fixed the champions league draw: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/socce...QDBHBzdGNhdANhdXRob3IEcHQDc2VjdGlvbnM-;_ylv=3


    then there was a very shady story about the ballon d'or voting: https://www.newstalk.ie/Pandev-backs-up-Mourinho-claims-that-FIFA-vote-was-corrupt

    and ibrahimowicz's reduced suspension so he could play the first leg against barcelona

    That's not completely true : there was one offside goal for each team, so in the end the result seems good to me. It would have been really upsetting if Malaga would have make it to the semi-finals with a 2-2 draw (considering Eliseu offside goal).

    I was really impressed by Isco : each time he has touched the ball he was good. He won't stay long in Malaga. Spanish football has a bright future ahead.

    Concerning tonight I think the Bayern is on a good way to the semis (and the cup by the way). In the other match I'm a bit undecided about which team I want to see in the semis, but I wouldn't mind to see a French team (with a pretty white roster) win. I'm not very fond of Barcelona. In the end I will probably root for the whitest team.

    it makes it even worse
    they ruined the game
    when a game is about the refereeing mistakes and what would have been the result without them, the game is ruined
    it's a shame because these 2 teams were really amongst the best and both would have kicked real madrid out without any problem
    the public was awesome as expected:

    [​IMG]

    dortmund's first goal was beatiful, with a great flick by marco reus:

    [​IMG]

    malaga's goals were perfect too (even the offside goal, the ball was going in anyways)

    [​IMG]

    malaga's goalkeeper was heroic with really INCREDIBLE saves during the last minutes of the game, he's the best goalkeeper of the tournament, no doubt about it
    but all was ruined with the refereeing mistakes

    and ofcourse that ugly goal had to be scored by the only black buffoon playing (malaga's 2 blacks - only 1 on the pitch at the same time - are actually decent players )
    the goofy black player had to shoot 2 times to score this ugly parody of a goal:

    as you can see on the last goal santana is obviously offside because the goalkeeper is clearly behind him, so that's the offside i spotted live, you didn't even have to pay attention to notice it

    but on the cross that led to the goal, the offside was also very obvious, if you are a linesman who's paid to look for offsides:

    [​IMG]

    :mad2:

    pellegrini, my favourite coach and malaga's coach, said that once malaga was leading 2-1, there was no refereeing anymore, the dortmund players were allowed anything

    barcelona would start the match vs PSG without messi - 2 non-whites
    messi would come in if PSG take the lead

    PSG without menez, lucas instead - 3 non-whites

    all the non-whites are south americans

    remember that PSG scored from an obvious offside in the first leg

    I personnally count three or five depending on your racial "bigotry" (Thiago Silva, the fat Brazilian "ladyboy" thanks Joey Barton, Alex Costa, Lucas and maybe Pastore and Maxwell too).

    I'll root without enthusiasm for Barcelone.

    it was too easy for messi, he didn't want to play more than 30 minutes :icon_lol:
    barcelona have a very weak defense this season, but it makes things more exciting, will they win champions league without a defense?
