Bayern are just awesome right now. And with the defensive trouble Barcelona has, there's no way they'll play another 90 and keep Bayern from scoring. It's done, the last leg is a formality, a chance to save face.
Messi didn't look like he was quite ready to play. Very poor performance from him unfortunately.
This is so surreal, the German teams destroying the supposedly best two teams in Europe, if not even the world like that. A German finale is in reach now, but I'm not really hoping for it, because there is no way I'm ever rooting for Bayern (except if them winning prevents Schalke a title).
Still two more Second Leg SFs to go, anything could happen. Football is a strange game sometimes. I would not have believed that the first two games would be 4-0 and 4-1, but they were. (maybe 1-0 or 0-0)
Normally I'd be totally with you on that "nothing is over yet", but I'd barely consider a 3:0 for Real an actual possibility, and for sure not a 5:0 for Barca.. these differences are just too high and neither of the german teams strikes me as it could be beaten that high in their current form, while the spanish clubs did not play all that great so far anyway.
Well, I think against teams like Barcelona and RM, if you play a perfect game, you might get a 1 or 2 goal difference win... to win by 3 or 4 it's a combination of playing with the right strategy and the other team having a really bad day.
Given, Bar?a's defense is not the best by far, and was conditioned by missing Puyol (who might not be fast but he's the boss) and Mascherano. Their strong point is attack which was nowhere to be found, so, result.
