A quote from Lionel Messi from earlier this season:
“It’s incredible,” Messi told the Spanish newspaper, Sport. “Rangers didn’t want to play football. They practised antifootball from the first minute and it’s a shame we couldn’t take victory because we created a good number of chances. We just didn’t put them away. I think that when they come to the Nou Camp everything is going to be very different.
“We need to find a solution for breaking down a team who close down so much, but I don’t believe we will come across many teams who play this way.”[From the London Times.]
Celtic go down fighting against Barcelona. Yep, they were dominated and the better team won and all that jazz but at least they gave it a go and they'll do the same at the Nou Camp in the return leg. And I did love Red Robbo's stop-start looping header.
And hit tip to the Scottish Patient for correctly predicting the scoreline . . . sort of.
