  1. Match of the season (as ever until the next one to follow…)
    rightly so a very tough one with slim chances to qualify tbh, yet such an excitement to be still on it.
    Come on ACM
    ps; I’d prefer to see Ibra as a substitution to allow us as a starting point endure against Liverpool high tempo
