never seen the movie with Seth Rogan and James Franco.
When they hang out with what's up, everybody got some new tune for you there.
So it's a our soccer show. We're back.
J held down the fort last week while I'm away.
So glad to be back with the fellas how we're in the one of my favorite times of the year with the Champions League and the Europa Lee coming down shut, the chance that the extra silverware, Who's the best of Europe? Who's the second best of the ****ty Europe competition that you qualified for because you weren't good enough in your league? So this is where you got relegated from the champions.
We Either way, that's what it is.
So, as usual, the air soccer show is brought to you by the breakdown sports dot com.
We got a lot of good content out there for you guys.
We're live on SportsCastr YouTube and Facebook, so wherever you're there, give us a Laker of follow.
We always appreciate it.
J didn't How much doing well, like you said, the happiest time of the year.
European soccer's back hopefully see united to get to the final and face enter.
Uh, that would be good, but we'll go ahead and prove you that later.
Yeah, I think it would be a good, uh, rivalry between you two if they make them spinal.
But I'm not so sure.
Um, hello? You hot coming in? Uh, on monday.
But maybe it just Celtics the better had on him, but should be a soccer either with Yeah, we know how the last two rivalry with me and you guys went with united and wolves.
So I'm just saying you're just saying what I mean.
So right before you jump in the champion, Champions League and Europa League, I got shut out That in the last real quick that ended over this past week.
Because I know a J always loves the MLS portion, or Lamb was forgot.
Portland took home the trophy over Orlando City.
And last night, Nashville in D.
Played each other. The teams that were removed from the bubble.
We got more matches this weekend.
The full slate starts back up next week.
So few MLS head like I am, um, You got about five days of a break, even if that so let's get into the champions Equals you guys all came here for which is barely a better product, cause I'll get into it.
One of the Masters caps off So first thing that will get into his sly own versus you vent choose.
So lion loses to match.
But they advance on aggregate due to a Waigel's love to see that.
So, um, the result of that match got Sorry, Sack kun clue.
I kind of think it was a writing and they're already the only way he could have potentially saved his job is if he made it to the finals or potentially one.
They brought in peer low, their old legend Italian Great to become the coach.
Um, not going to drown on that right now.
But lie own played a gutsy game.
I think they kind of got lucky, though, because they sat back very hard and a little too much for my liking.
And when we get into the matter view, that's where I'm going to be even more concerned about them in their upcoming fixture.
But we had to very questionable penalty kicks given in this through on Hvar upheld both of them, and then later on in the match, when Lion had a chance to tie back up, there was no penalty kick given or it was given and taken off due to bar.
So Ah, that match was heavily full of it.
Events who's always seems like they get the better half of it, but they still won and got eliminated, so that makes my heart happy.
Uh, Diablo did come in and he had an injury, and he probably played for maybe 10 minutes and had to relieve with that thigh injury again.
That's not good signs for you Ventures, because the Syria does end up starting and I think a little bit over a month.
So I'm going to be interesting.
This you would goes there.
But like the sea lion goes through, not many people were giving him a chance because they've played what, maybe one or two competitive matches in the past three or four months and didn't really look like other than playing a little bit too much relaxed.
They seem like they're of us in full group and it's funny you mentioned it cause I saw a lot of people on like Twitter and Reddit, saying, Oh, like the French League because it's cancelled will come out rusty.
The French teams have no shot in Champions League and liquid vents.
Both the French teams, right? Yeah, I think piece.
She got a little lucky, but they did look a little rusty, but having there's too much talented, so, like Russ doesn't matter when you're so have somebody good players.
So in the next match from the past week, we've got City versus Madrid.
So before we get into the result of this match of city winning, there was two terrible mistakes in Real Madrid's back line where they're trying to pass it through the back.
And that's where I made my joke earlier about the MLS talent.
If that would have happened in the MLS, everybody on Twitter would have been losing their ****in mind.
But this is what the top club in the world are one of the top clubs in the world doing this.
So even city would look a little bit shaky in the back, too.
So that was very strange to see.
I mean, I understand the philosophy of building out the back and retaining possession.
But there's only so many times where you can make a pass from the left, back to the keeper to the right back as you saw them do that and 2 to 3 times in a row.
And that's just because City was so pressed up high on them, gave them no angles in the middle and knew that Hey, if you're just gonna pass it in the back, there could be a potential mistake And they made two blunders which potentially cost them the match, because there any other than those two mental mistakes but us, you can't do that against it either and make you pay for it.
And we saw what happened.
Yeah, it's Ah, it's a little unfortunate because our last dream you weren't here.
I was hyping up Madrid's defence, talking about how strong they looked.
Ah, that's why I took the under on this match and then just the biggest game of the season for them.
And they go ahead and make these mistakes, especially from Iran, who I think is world class quality defender.
And then he makes these mistakes.
Yeah, I think it's even even though the players are still I'm saying Good.
They saw too good center back to you without Ramos are, but I think it shows they're, like, lack of leadership back there.
Without Ramos, it's more than just his ability and skill.
Probably just less less confidence back there and playing those passes like that.
You have to be confident and know where you're going with.
Um, so it is is ah.
Ah, a bad time for two.
Back to defer to terrible mistakes.
So So, uh, real quick before we move into the next match.
Um, Sergio Ramos? Was he a lead guitarist in a band, or was he showing you your table in a fancy ass restaurant? Wait, What? You How many times a panto him and him in that, like, suit with the little vest on it.
He looked like he was either the lead guitar man or he looked like he was a fancy waiter about to show you your table in the restaurant.
I'm I Definitely I definitely get those waiter invites.
I get what you're saying.
Yeah, I would think more.
More fancy waiter than guitarists.
Maybe an indie rock band, maybe.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I could see it.
Oh, that That that's great.
But enough about Ramos.
We had one other.
Ah, I thought I thought it was the match of the week.
You had P s G ah vs Atalanta.
Um, couple of hearts were broken for all the cereal fans.
Rex who couldn't show up against Ah, who got I mean ultimate.
I think it's a disappointment to give up two late goals like that.
Um, but I think Neymar really showed how world class he was this match.
Okay, Okay, okay.
His dribbling and his attacking prowess was I think on point, it was just those final touches.
Final shot, some selections in there that I was like, OK, Neymar.
Really? Um I think PS tree should have dominated, but Atlanta stayed in their got their goal and almost held on to the end.
Yeah, I mean, Atalanta, I think other than that early breakaway, they gave Teoh name or where he just fluffed it pretty terribly.
MLS players probably would have finished that, Um uh, but other than that, I mean, I think Atalanta hung with them. Tough.
There, there everyone's club that we've been talking about for the past few months, if not the entire season.
Everyone finally caught on.
Um, it was strange because you kind of saw the rust on P S G a little bit, but then they kind of shook it all fast.
But I still think Otto Lotto looked like the nihilistic better side.
But for 90 minutes, they're winning that game and we're in control.
But then they had this to terrible.
I'll know even how it doesn't make it the extra time.
But, um, I would like to see them going further, but now they're out, and I'm gonna be sad because there's no Italian team left.
But I was happy about one leaving sad about one leaving.
So now Europa Leagues, where I'm at? Yeah, I mean, I think Adalat I mean, they were the better thing for 75 minutes.
So, um, it is heartbreaking, but that's what you played 90 minutes.
Um, I definitely feel for any anybody who back them even on, like, people who probably back them on my plus 900.5.
That's ah, worst beating.
My opinion obviously done.
Ah, the money line.
But, uh, because I don't go in the hole came thinking you have it easy.
And then five minutes is tipped on your head.
Um, but, you know, the last time we saw this play today, um, between Red Bull and Athletico Madrid, I thought I thought it was gonna win this.
Um I thought the absence a team A Warner was going to be too big, but it was just The first half was ugly.
It was pretty boring to watch bad football.
Um, but second half, I think kind of just with the early Weitzen goal early in the second half kind of opened it up.
And I think it's interesting.
Like Madrid Point defense.
They played their style for the 1st 45 50 minutes until they let up a goal and they start attacking.
And they're creating chances and scoring and like, Oh, it kind of strikes me is why did they not do that from the start? Like I know they want to stick to their style and, um, like, stick to the game plan to some extent, but they're they're a better team than might seem kind of top to bottom and talent wise.
Why not just attack them? They had they have the players to you, so I think that was from my point of view.
Like you got to sit back against Barcelona and Real Madrid when you play.
But you can actually you don't necessarily have to do that against, uh, like against Leipzig.
Um, again may just be a little salty, but, um, yeah, I think, uh, Tyler Adam scored the goal to win the game, which is great for young American and for us, A soccer pants.
I'm certain the president gave him the goal.
I guess it was on target, but it was a little election that put it in, but yeah.
I mean, uh, I did see this on Twitter.
Like the absence of Warner it It went, um, who is their head coach? Uh, the guy that loves wearing outfits that you can buy it.
Dix? Yeah, He looked the other suit on today cycle.
Eyes is like his Nichols made.
I think, uh, um, he with her Werner they're able to play their style more.
And I think you saw that today where Werner was playing, they'd have they feel like they forced him the ball, but now with a full sand and, um, some of the other strikers up there.
They were able to kind of stick to their style, and I think that really helped them in this game.
So sets up a good semifinal between life second PSC.
So here is where Diego Simoni was kind of just two stuck into what they've done time and time and time over again.
Because when you're applying a hi, intensity pressing team and I'll know if anyone plays a higher, intense Preston Leipzig does.
Why are you going to kind of play into their hands of sitting back and playing that style where I mean he I was.
He just got a hope that his team's more talented and stronger in that style, and ours will win over yours.
But I would have liked Teoh because, to your point, once they follow that goal behind and we're talking about this in our slack channel, once they fall behind, it's gonna be hard for Atletico to probably come back.
But I was wrong because once they fell behind, they look much better and like a stronger team, that's where maybe he maybe had to do a little bit more thinking on that gets paid million's.
I get page nothing to do that so But that's just where I was coming from where you kind of played into Leipzig's hand a little bit more by sticking to what you know, and late sick practice and practice and practice that over and over again.
Just imagine them coming out from the start and being like, no, throwing everything out the door doing something different.
Would like to see what would have happened if they've done that style for the full match.
Yeah, I think, uh, it was interesting.
Chow Felix didn't start and neither did Thomas party, who has been heavily winked.
English teams actually don't know.
Party came in is a sub.
I don't remember.
Um, but it was almost like they're playing for, like, it draw at 60 minutes, and then we're going to kind of go attack.
So I think the goal in the second half kind of took him out of it, But I did see there is a common, I think earlier this week, or maybe this morning or yesterday, Air that block was like, um, we don't like, have to score, go if we never give up one or we only need to score one goal if we don't give up any.
And I think that was their game plan going into the one selected escorted bed kind of that you abandoned it.
So before we jump into the Europa League, I want to get your guys thoughts on this, um, bop they end up that did suiting up and playing for PSD.
What you guys think of that because I honestly think he looked like used, maybe a little let 65% if that cause he was hobbling around on the field.
But, I mean, he's just here and draw defenders cozy Zimbabwe.
He gained all that respect over the past two years that where no matter what percent he's that you kind of give them.
But it almost seemed like a great decoy.
But I'm almost more afraid that, like they're lucky that Diablo thing didn't happen where you could potentially lose him for more time.
Short, short term and worked out PST advances.
But long term your young stud, who I think is about 21 risk of re injury.
For me, it didn't make sense, but I mean, they win, they advance.
And he's not hurt.
So I guess it works out and then, yeah, I think even.
I mean, when you got hurt, people are like, there's no like, they ruled amount of the game immediately.
And I think that, like, uh, when I was writing my article, I was under the impression of them, but he wasn't playing.
And then I had to go back.
And Ben, like, uh, he's questionable about 4 may play like it's I feel like soccer injuries.
Um, yeah, I think he definitely came in as a decoy.
Definitely was not close to even 70%.
But, um, I think even just the like or are the distraction of Is he coming in or not like, That's definitely what some of those out of line two defenders were thinking the back of their minds, I'm sure.
All right, let's hop over to the Europa League will give you the match.
We won't spend as much time of them as we did there, cause we know you're all dying to get to the previews and our best bets coming up.
So, uh, the best team left in Europa competition 12 to 1 in regulation.
They need the extra time.
Ah, Marella and Lukaku got the goals high.
Vered Scott one for leverage, cues.
And so the 1st 25 minutes was awesome.
And then I just don't know what happened to this match.
All the air got sucked out of it.
Um, usually don't see inter defend this well, Labour accused in can usually attack decently.
Well, that's where gave me a little bit.
Maybe a false hope for Conte System worked a little bit better.
Enter clearly just had the better talent.
I think that's just just what showed where interest before this season was a team that sat back and did an attack too much.
And it seemed like they went back to their old habits for that final 75 minutes to make sure that they advance.
So it's all good and we get the play shocked are coming up.
Like you said, the match started out banging and then I mean just fizzled out.
Sucks for everyone who sat on over three kids to push after.
I think I was like 24 27 minutes and yet not get that fourth goal Hostile disappointing, but like you mentioned, Enter came up clutched by defending when they needed to.
And on to the next round.
Yeah, I thought I was seeing ghosts doing that.
Yeah, it is interesting.
I, like, took away like, interact a comfortable win.
But forget the only 1 to 21 like I don't know if I'm sure, like accusing had some good chances The ambit Ellis.
After they were up to up to nothing and then to one, um, I just kind of assumed Enter was gonna win the game and that obviously they did.
But I think it's probably close to them.
What I remembered.
So, uh, we'll jump into the other.
I guess you guys One guy says his team is the best.
The other guys always gonna say his team's the best.
In the final, I let my teams do talking.
If I need to remind the viewers your wolves fan talking all this loud, loud but united are finished bottom on the table.
So I don't remember who said they're wolves.
Fan inner till I die, I'm I'm I have to go back and clip it.
But ah, regarding united we didn't play.
I think it's FC Copenhagen.
Um, I mean, got the job done in extra time, but for me, I was very excited this match just because, I mean, all the players got the rest.
They needed, um, time to recover after a long Premier League.
And then they come out a very slow, sluggish star.
Copenhagen had some chances early on to ah, Nick a goal away from United.
But I mean, zeros there up to 90 and scoring extra time is not necessarily how I want to go into the next round.
But a victory is a victory.
And I will take it.
Yeah, I thought, like the 1st 30 minutes, Man, you look super disinterested.
Like they didn't want to be there to some extent.
Like they, uh, there's no like urgency behind this were kind of they're playing around.
I mean, I another another lost bet for me on this game had some, uh, chances.
I think they does.
This person was when they called the game or called the goal off for being offsides, which he was upsides.
Um, but I mean it is Ah, I didn't like how man you look that game.
I thought they dismantled Copenhagen.
Um, but I don't I guess that they danced either way.
So well, the strange it's strange that you would say that your team looked better when, ah, Copenhagen's quite inferior talent and leverage use.
And so I'd be a little nervous heading into the next match.
All I know is some games where we talk about teams look horrible.
They come out and play strong the next match.
Um, example when we talk smack in Barcelona and then they come out and just wreck teams So you guys could talk all that smack on United, so I'll take that Momenta meant the next match.
Yeah, I also have to make sure it take note of, uh, wrecked immediately.
Uh, discerning the wolves is one of his team's.
After they did not kind of Europa, So Ah, yeah, Speaking of wolves, they lost a Sylvia, Um, proud.
I mean, a pretty terrible game to watch him and has missed the penalty.
Um, which I also its first penalty missed with wolves.
Um, and he he loves doing the like just kind of walk up to the ball and Mike stutter and make the goalkeeper dive one way.
But the goalie kind of did the same thing back, like wiggled one way when the other and kind of threw him.
And as often I thought it was a great um, not just a good stop.
A good, like kind of counter toe him and as his penalty taking style.
Um, but they miss that evidence.
And then since then there was rules.
Played defense for 75 minutes, 70 minutes.
And it was ah, ah, a boring game to watch, try or looked good in some instances, but they just I think wolves, having played like 50 plus games and having a 13 month long season, probably caught up to him in this one.
And I know I listen this on the press conferences after new.
No said that that was their game plan they were going to defend.
The news team was tired.
They couldn't like play a high style after the long season.
And so they just went into it literally playing for extra time and maybe trying to get one goal at the end.
But the one gold be and would person via, um, go compost.
Campos was, ah, cool score but, um, yeah.
I mean, it is a deserved win for Sylvia.
Um oh, yeah, it's a little frustrating, but I think as a world span, definitely a good season.
Um, that kind of ended poorly by their own always Ah, good second season.
The Premier League, for sure.
Yeah, hopefully not having Europa competition may help them going into next season in there, but that miss of the peak age has completely changed the match.
New style would have completely worked if they got that first goal and defended and depend.
But I even though when you do that style Savi just look way more dominant than the Wolves did.
So that's what was just a little bit concerning.
My favorite part was the Spanish broadcaster making the race car sounds where try Ari was going pretty fast and drew the PK.
So if you haven't not find that on Twitter that it's always a good laugh.
No, it's also, um oh, I just had something to say, uh, severe.
Like the wolves of la Liga.
They they have They do, um, kind of sit back a lot, but they have a really dangerous counterattack in Ah, uh, obviously severe was more on the attacking foot, and they eventually broke down wolves.
But it was basically to kind of mirror images of each other, going up against one the one another.
And then the biggest route we had of the Europa competitions with shocked charges dominating Basil.
Um, very interesting and fishy line from a gambling perspective because shocked.
I was sitting around like minus 1 10 to minus 15 at kickoff, and Basil's recent form was just pretty terrible.
They scored one goal in their past three matches they're playing.
They played their fifth competitive game because the Swiss league is in flight right now and in the middle of it, and over 14 days of five matches and 14 days is pretty terrible for your legs.
And I just think the bookmakers were sleeping on that one.
The public don't know either these two teams, so if you follow the week pretty closely, the shock their teams just looks likes to score.
People just don't know him because they're not a common team name, but they came out look much better and they'll be going up against too strong of a side.
But if they're playing a team and red.
I would like their chances going into next round, but it looks like they might be making an early exit.
I mean, they started in, Ah, the Champions League.
So they definitely I mean, they're top Ukrainian side.
Um, they were in.
That was, I think, was Manu, our Man City Atalanta and, uh, Zagreb Group.
And I think almost every one of their games had the least three goals or three or more goals.
So, um, they attack.
And they only know 11 style of soccer is to try to score rules. Basically.
So our a j kick us off with their Champions League previews.
We got games a day like Joe, he said earlier, which is the best part about this.
So let's get into it.
Yeah, they come.
Ah, taken fast, though, Tomorrow, August 14th is the next, uh, Champions League match.
So I think personally, this might be the match of the tournament.
On paper, pre match, you have to giants in Bayern and Barcelona going at it, um, for me and I have a play on this match later, so I'll dive a little deeper into it, but I just see the best team in Germany.
And arguably, I believe Bayern right now are the best team in the world.
Um, their best 11 ca match anyone's best 11 and from attacking their midfield defence and also one of the world's best keepers.
I think everything tilt in their favor.
But I did see an interesting quote from the Bayern CEO.
I don't know feels released today or yesterday.
Um and I know if you watch the stream, all of us are huge and all forms of Davies Uh, but Byron CEO went out and said on Fonzo, Davies will take care of Messi.
Um interpret that any way you want to.
Um essentially, he's saying Davies will handle Messi, which is a tall task for I believe Davies is 19 years old, so we'll see what side Messi lines up on and the Davies can handle that.
So I think Messi is going the Michael Jordan route.
He printed that out on text, has it up in the locker room and just use it as fuel.
Um, I love Davies.
He's a solid left back.
And I love to say this that they recruited him to play for and they just saw how good he was and needed to get him on the field so he might get caught because Davies is the wingback and loves to get up.
So you don't want to get behind Messi.
That's all I know.
Yeah, I think Alba will also play centre back on that side.
I think at least the way they've lined up in the past.
So, um, I think both one will look to shut him down.
But, I mean, it reminds me of Ah, obviously I was, Ah, swimmer.
Growing up and there was, ah, was the 12 year reunion of the U.
Men beating the French men in the four by 100 relay.
And the day before, the Alain Bernard or Alain Bernard was in the paper saying they're going to smash the Americans.
Um, so I do think the Barcelona motivation is going strong.
Messy, I think is probably a better leader than what a lot of people give him credit for.
Especially on the domestic side when he doesn't have a full country, uh, kind of looking at him and like, forcing him to something.
So, uh, yeah, I think it's I I agree it's the best match up in this round and may even be better than what we get in the semifinal.
Um, but I wrote my article that it's the best team against the best player.
I mean, Firedoglake, Bridget said.
Top to bottom, best in the world.
But it's a messy can kind of take over game whenever he wants.
And he does have the hope of Suarez and Greece's Bond and a young.
So he's got some pieces around him in just a matter of how much and how well buyer can shut him down.
Yes, so my biggest thing is we when we've seen Byron play the other top Scots.
Even Chelsea is not a top spot.
They're very on the fringe, but this defense is just unreal.
A lot of people sleep on it, but Barcelona's defence is going to just be at a just has to perform as well as theirs.
So everyone loves the over in this match.
Um wanted to go contrary and playing under.
But just given how both teams scored in all the four previous Champions League matches, that's just what the one thing that's here, it all found off.
That's recency bias.
And I need to kick that out of my brain.
But interesting angle, if you want to be super contrarian, which I like to play is take the under.
But if you're doing that, don't watch the match.
Yeah, I was actually going to say the same thing.
I think I almost played something involving goals in this game, but ah, yeah, I could definitely see this being the over that everyone takes but ends one. No.
So I think, uh, people were just like, Oh, Barcelona is bad.
A defense and Byron can score goals.
But I think in my article, I had said that it expected goals, but, um I don't know.
I could definitely see it being a tighter affair than a lot of people Imagine.
Uh, next game, man City and Leone, Um, I think this one should be a blowout we own.
Did look ok against Aventis, but city should handle their business in this one.
They look much stronger, more motivated.
Side Pep wants to win this tournament.
Um, and I think I was impressed with how they wind up against riel with voted and then like the nine spot with, uh uh, Jesus and Sterling in the wingers.
I think that's a way better line up for them kind of place, the voting strength and especially for his use and sterling work necessarily.
That's goalscoring strikers.
I could don't have this that mentality, but you have voted in the false nine is definitely good spot on, but we own I think they're kind of, uh they were in a good spot against Adventists, and they had the advantage going in.
And now going into a game where that starts your zero, they're gonna be on the back foot from the start.
And I don't think they're gonna be able to Defense City for full 90.
If they go on with any bit of the same mentality that they go against event, you vent, use match.
I know they're up, so you can take it as much.
But cities just gonna punish them if they try to do it.
So this is the one where, um, I was going to talk about this in the best bets, but I'll just get it out now. This is a match.
I think you play live after 10 20 minutes.
If it's still scoreless, hop on it, then the over three sitting out like minus 105 minus 1 10 Give in your book.
But I mean, I think Lyon can score.
I like, uh, I think it's Moussa Dembele.
Ease back now for them towards a C L.
And he's already playing soccer against.
That's pretty crazy.
And, ah, he's He's their guy.
They need him in that lineup to score when he's not in there.
You saw them full.
I think they only qualified for your open this past season or demon.
Make a spot and lead a one cause and early.
So that's where.
So they finished out of it without him.
So he's there, Cog.
He looked, I would say, fully fit in their last match.
So if you like in anytime, goalscorer.
And if you want to play someone on my own, he's your guy you got to go to because he's the catalyst of that offense.
Yeah, I'm like you mentioned the over is a good bet.
And if you wanna wait just a little bit of time, catch that live.
Um, maybe the line will drop to 2.5.
I mean, like you said, they score city scores, and this is a gold school school match.
Um, but I have been seeing rumors that if help doesn't win Champions League this season, he could be on the hot seat for next season.
So I think City have a lot of pressure writing on them.
Just cause pep the past couple seasons hasn't been getting the results That city anticipated spending the money bringing big names.
Big coach need results since, uh, next since we record on Thursdays, we're gonna hop into the semifinal.
L happened before.
The next time we record, you got energy drink.
Leipzig versus the P SG.
That's on Tuesday.
So this is Ah, it's a very interesting match.
I only say I want to compare legs again.
Atalanta Any capacity just because they play different styles? But well, I think lately could give PST issues potentially.
But where I saw, um against PSG against Athlon tha that might come in more prevalent into play against Leipzig is if they catch them on the counter, especially a pressing team.
You're a lot more screwed than a type of Anton to who builds up the attack and then just pummels you.
This team is going to stay on top of you and hope you make a silly mistake.
So, um, it's a match where the line I don't think has came out yet just because the previous match just ended.
So whenever that drops, that's longer.
Be interested to see um, uh, one of the three of us, maybe multiple multiple of us might tweet out of play.
So you should definitely follow us on Twitter to check us out.
This you will end up adding anything into it, but I just think like it could play a style that gives PSG trouble again.
And now, given what they seen, what embodies up to I don't think that decoy tactic could work as well.
I don't think he plays the next match, given how he is.
So if you want to get a hot tape from this, I don't think he should get in there, because at this point, you're just risking his long term health and ah, he's and the French nationals will not be happy if anything happens to him with euros come out next summer Yeah, I agree.
I don't got honestly have Ah, good.
Thought on what is gonna happen in the game, but I think the wipes, it would be a live dog here.
Um, just something like everything reiterating everything Rex said.
But just they they now that the underdog of the semi final and we stayed, no matter who makes it, I guess if we know, makes it.
But, um, yeah, I think Pierce, uh, life said kind of will have house money at this point and kind of no pressure and just playing for fun.
I also think it would be funny, just like Reverend Warner space that they omit advanced to the final without him.
So yeah, and I think, uh, lighting like being the underdog, So they don't mind this situation for them, But I think Rex mentioned it.
I think the big thing for me is what is MBA pay status? I talked about the last dream.
PSD without Imbaba.
Do not look that good.
Um, without them, they're missing that pace of top.
He draws defenders everything like that.
Um, obviously, when he came on for the Atlanta Maps, I mean, that changed the whole game.
So it just depends what? PSG doesn't come moving forward and that's the angle.
But I'll be looking at for that match.
All right, let's hop over to the Europa League, where? Depending on the results of this match, we might have a virtual fistfight on the stream coming up next episode.
So the first matches Inter Milan were shocked are so just.
This has the makings of, ah, highly offensive game where we could see both teams find the back of the net and we could see some goals at the same time.
If Inter dropped back into that style that they played for majority of the game against Leverkusen and knowing that shocked are just likes to play the one way attack, attack, attack, play into that and just take it where it is.
Um, that could happen.
Ah, it's just at this point where your deep into the season enters has a better quality on the roster they need to show up in when this match.
Um, if not, it's gonna be a lot of more rumors about Contes future at the club, which I think is kind of ridiculous, given how well and good we look, then we've brought in players to play his style.
But, um e I think this has is a sleeper matched the other match of universe.
Manu's definitely gonna have more eyes on it.
But if you want to see Lukaku and the shocked our whole team attacking, it's a match to watch.
Yeah, I think, uh, I mean, my first question our first thought was like, which interview we get.
Obviously, they look good in recent games, but they do have kind of issues of the back at some points, and they became let up goals, I think shock cars them loaded with Brazilian players.
So they're trying to talented guys, and they seem to play their style.
Well, um, yeah, I think both A j and I have a play on this game, and, um so, yeah, I just I think it forget it done, But it won't be.
It won't be a boring game.
I don't think it should be a pretty entertaining game for sure.
Yeah, I'm on the same page entertaining match.
Um, and I think Joey B and I will touch on it a little bit.
We're getting best bets, but the other Europe.
A league match is United versus Sylvia.
Ah, that takes place on Sunday.
For United, this is a revenge match.
A couple years back under Josie Marino's rain, Sylvia played united in the Champions League end up winning, advancing to the next round.
So united have the revenge angle.
But I think the theme for both of the better teams in both of the matches is what side we're gonna get.
We see the United side that scores five goals a game, and then we see the United side that goes 90 minutes without scoring gets Copenhagen.
So it just depends Which one comes out on Sunday.
Yeah, I'm interested in this match.
I gotta play coming up on this one.
Joey B also as one coming up.
So I think we'll dive in tow a little bit further there.
Um, yeah, it would be great to see severe with, but I want Manu toe win just because of the inner, uh, show rivalry to live on you.
Ah, you said virtual fistfight.
Do I'm gonna fly to the East Coast.
You can sleep on my count.
It wouldn't be fair.
I think I got like at least six inches on you and probably like too many l b So that's where you got you.
Got a ground and pound time.
Begin to the best part of our show are three favorites.
Best bets? Um, yeah, well, we were a little bit of junkies in this.
We watch all football across the world.
So we got with the Champions League going on.
We got the little bit of the lower tier teams going in there, so I'm going to get a little bit more interesting this week.
But the recap last week before we get there um, I went one Owen once.
I gotta push with lion plus one.
And I got the Dub with Orlando City beating, Um, Minnesota, I believe you have beating ministered at plus 1 39 So I went +101 for plus 1.
39 units and got that push.
Yeah, for my recap, I had the city Madrid under, which was 1/2 push half win.
The game ended on three goals.
I had PSG Atalanta under three.
Ah, very, very, very sad push.
Um, however, if you waited until closer in the game time, I believe the line moved up to 3.
25 so you were able to get 1/2 push half win, but for the show sake, I'm going to call it a full push.
And I had Napoli Barcelona over three gold, which I believe cashed in the first half.
Yeah, I think I saw when I woke up with that.
Ah, PSC over It was a 3.
25 and moved back towards three.
Um, so people were spot on with the with the line there.
Um, I did have my first negative week.
I believe since being on the show I was one of three minus 2.
My soul win was City Real Madrid.
Both teams to score in over 2.
So a J both came away with, uh, least half a win for a J melon. So it was nice.
Um, have you bent Hisley on most goals in the second half was lost.
Uh, two penalties kind of killed me, and I thought even if we got away with the with just one goal in the first half, we had a chance.
But both penalties went against me.
Menu halftime. Full time.
Another loss? Maybe.
You look terrible.
Uh, and then the last loss was today.
I thought ago Madrid money line.
Well, I got to start with a J.
I think last last stream, I said in my initial reaction, was to play the draw.
Both teams loved drawing, so I am not too upset that Leipzig one and I didn't miss out on playing the draw.
So but look, the bounce back this week for sure.
All right, To get into this week's play, please, which got a multiple coming at you.
My first one's gonna be in Europe a week.
I'm sitting out the Champions League.
My Lean was gonna play Barcelona and some sort of fashion, but just going to stay off it, enjoy the two Champions League matches and dive right into the Europa League.
So I got a parlay coming at you to start Inter Milan money by and Manu to advance at plus 2 13 you can see where, whether a more confident and which is the weaker club, but given where we need this to go to and I think FIFA will definitely have a little sneaky hand in this, get the too much bigger clubs than the two there.
Get them in the Europa League final.
You got a quote unquote old man U versus the new Manu.
But what? We got two players for Manu in our club.
So, um yeah, I just, like, enters chances and Manu's chances to advance just being the better clubs enter is in full time, man, you can go to the extra time to cash that.
So I got that at Plus 2 +13 Love to see when I get the plus money and it's over two.
So gotta ride that out.
Just thinking the better clubs win.
Maybe it's a little bit square, but that's where I'm going with my first play.
Yeah, you You had one square parley earlier in the stream, I think, is about maybe a month and 1/2 ago, that cash with ease.
So Rex is parlays, work out pretty well, and, like you mentioned the two bigger clubs, I think people would much rather see united Inter vs Sylvia Shakhtar Donetsk e Ah, just a little Ah, gut feeling there, but moving on to my first play Since we're talking about Europe leg, I guess I'll give my Europa League play First it's in the Malone Shakhtar over 2.
Um, I think we mentioned before.
Shakhtar only knows how to go one way dinner, have some Swiss cheese in the back and they also score goals.
I could see this.
I personally see this one Skying over a 314 to sort of deal.
I just expect calls.
Yeah, I have two plays in Europe A but I mean, I'm on the same thing.
75 Uh, this may be the game like, uh, Byron and bar several.
It's gonna be over, but it's going to end up with nothing.
I think the only way we see that as it better get an early goal can just sit back and defend.
But I would be really shocked to see shocker in this game with the no goals.
So I mean, I think per 314 to maybe even I guess not to to I didn't get the winds.
Um, but yeah, I think three ones are pretty good.
That here, um, also part of Rexes Parlay inter money line, I think is right around minus 1 30 I thought about that one.
A much higher class team.
They look motivated, Determined.
So that's another.
But if you don't want the part way, um, the inter money line by itself is pretty good.
Yeah, and just add onto that over.
When I was looking at this, I like to look at the implied probabilities, projected goals.
And right now, the implied probability of the books is giving it around the 58 to 60% chance of where the line sits.
Um, info Goals and fivethirtyeight, which are two sites I like to use.
They if you combine their averages, they're giving you close between 70 and 75% of where and over 2.
75 Knock it off a little bit.
Put it down to the sixties, but you're getting about 10% of value backing that over.
So that's definitely a angle that I was looking to play.
But since I like the money line a little bit better Ah, that's why I stayed off that one.
Yeah, I think even Ukraine of the Ukrainian side shocked.
Are they even in the Ukrainian league, where they're the best team in kind of outclass everyone.
They still win games like 3 to 4 to two, like they still just score goals and attack in that we given in their domestically, Um, they just overpower Buddy.
And I think you even see that you saw that in the Champions League.
When they're in the group stage against Zach Grab and Man City and Ah, Atalanta, they admit, like nothing.
Zack grabbed it, had a 33 game.
Um, I think almost every game they played in the Champions League, uneven in the knockout stages of Europe.
When they were in there, I think they played a 33 game against Benfica.
So, um, these games I tend to go over with shocked, aren't I think it's a good trend back.
Not not to blindly back the trend, but play style, I think, plays a lot to this, too.
So for my next play that my two fellows state both are staying in the Champions League or Europa Lee for the next one.
I'm getting a little down and dirty going to Serie B for my next to play, so if you don't know these teams names can't blame me for that.
But like my Serie B.
So the 1st 1 is Prue Glover's Paskah.
Ah, this is the relegation match.
So this is sitting at Pescara to one.
We're heading into the second leg. Prove grows home.
Um, this is where I like the over 2.
25 Even the last time I played in over two or 2.
5, I got burned playing and even, But given that, uh, Pruitt got the A Waigel pass card needs to get an away goal here because approval wins at home one nothing.
It's going to extra time due to that.
That's where just given its situation and puts car on the road.
Has given up Ah, 32 Bulls, which is second worst in Serie B and prove ah was completely even.
Ah, finding X G stats on Serie B's a little bit more difficult, but I was able to find it, and I, like prove, goes ability to score.
So I think we see 11 at worst, and that gets me 1/2 win.
I would hate to get her half loss so wouldn't like that, but I like this chances playing to stay up in Serie B, not falling too seriously and fall into bankruptcy? Probably.
Um, I like, uh, over 2.
Yeah, I don't have too much to add, cause I personally don't deep dive into the serie B Ah stats.
But I could tell you one thing is Rex gets down and dirty if he gets have been following us.
His English championship plays were cashing like, uh, nothing.
So I do trust him on the Serie B.
And if you're looking for some Ah, Italian soccer.
Do you know when that matches tomorrow? Get it right there.
Simply because some Friday Italian soccer There you go.
Um, but for me, like Rex mentioned, uh, Joey B and I are normal.
So a stick in the Champions League.
So my next one is a Champions League pick.
Uh, I'm backing Bayern Munich minus 105 on the money line.
Um, I think this is just a short line for the best team in the world.
One angle or one thing that I really like about Byron heading into this match.
Is there five in the midfield? I look for that toe overpower Barcelona plays like a 433 just dominate the midfield.
You have arguably, who should have won the Malan door up top and Robert Lewandowski.
And there is, um, not necessarily bad blood, but revenge angle for Bayern.
If you guys haven't seen there's an iconic photo of Messi chipping Neuer and I know there is just it.
Rex mentioned how mess is gonna be like Jordan and the have the Alphonso Davies quote in the locker room.
But you best believe Bayern Munich are coming out firing.
Yeah, I definitely think you can get the best team in the world in minus 25 again.
Say, uh, one of Barcelona is not one of their worst teams, but not the normal Barcelona there Definitely Miss Italian.
You gotta take it.
Um, I do like the bad.
I think even with Messi, Byron can kind of just their physicality.
I think we'll be able to shut down a little bit and keep him quiet.
Um and then I'm Rexes play.
That I think is the second leg of a relegation battle.
I think those both in the championship for across Europe, the second wave always tends to go over a little more open, less cautious, especially with one team meeting to score eso just another like situation.
I think that really lends itself to come back in the over.
Um, but my second bet I'm going against Rex is part way and against, ah, ages a man u team.
But I would be a two plus will fire so similar toe Rex backing view to advance it.
No matter what happens in 90 minutes, they could go to Peak isn't win, and I'd still my bet.
So what, I'm gonna be end up in the final with my bet.
Um, I just think, man, do I mean men? You could win this game 2030 just what their dominant growing up and how strong their offensive attack is.
But I think the waste be is playing.
Um, they have a much and they have a talent.
Um, they have Ocampo's in Banega and regularly on, and I think this Sergio rebellion Bergoglio has been rumored.
I don't know if he's I think he's going.
He's on loan from reality and I think is going back there after this tournament.
So he's a world class player.
One of the best, right back or left back things the right back.
But I think one of the better players on to be, I think, uh, they're defense is very well connected.
Well, good defense.
Um, and then set pieces, I think are there strong to that? So they scored against wolves.
Um, I think they get one or two against menu often. Set piece.
That should be enough for that dude bats.
And with a plus one or five, I think I had to take it.
Yeah, I, uh, personally, emotionally, I don't like that you're not back to united.
Um, however, I can't not say it's a smart pick.
You know, they just haven't looked that great.
Um, we struggle on set pieces and savi and know how to beat us.
So it's just a formula for ah, we're gonna pick.
For my file pic of the weekend, this one's on Sunday.
You got species a going up against frozen.
Yoni was in Syria last year.
Speeds it was not, but given the roster, talent froze.
Yoni does have an American on it.
So was a little bit biased there. Bongo.
What this be as a pick at plus 1 25 Clearly just from spears of just being the more talented team.
This is two lakes.
So Speedy Za is the road team here and with the root teams.
And they were able, I think this match ends right at 1 to 1, potentially 1 0/2 +12 speeches, favors.
So that's why I'm taking the pic.
Because if you're a road team in the first leg and you get that goal, that's what you need to do.
Take it home, finish it off, I think speeds, it goes up.
It's kind of like the English championship playoffs.
This is their version of it.
Eat teams get in instead of four.
Cause it's Italy.
I'll know why, but yeah, I'm gonna take the spears a pick at plus 1 25 Yeah, Like I said, another league that I don't know too much about, But Rex is, ah, directions good with these things.
But this week I only had two picks, so I'm gonna go ahead and pass on the jury.
Be Yeah, I got my last pick we talked about at Man City.
Um I do want you guys input.
I do have ah feeling of which way I want to go.
But, man city either minus 1.
5, it minus 1 30 Or would you guys like taking like the minus 1.
75 plus one? 05 I would lean towards the minus 1.
I think City could win this game by three.
And I'd be happy with that plus price.
Um, but it's worse.
I think they went by two.
And I get 1/2 when I don't know what you guys tend to do in those situations.
I didn't get five expected to gain to be close, I'd play the minus 1 30 lay the juice.
But with the plus price of minus 1.
75 I think I make what is going to go with that one.
That kind of try to get a full win.
Ah, the way I would approach this is this is just my personal philosophy.
You see, guys play juicy airlines, but between minus 1 30 to minus 1 50 is where I stopped playing lines straight.
So you're right on the border of that.
If you're confident that they win by two, then you play that minus 1 30 But if you're more worried about if it potentially is a one goal win and you wanted have less skin in the game, take the minus 1.
75 cause you're going that +105 I think this line definitely steams as we get closer than matchday.
So that one of our finest 1.
75 plus one of five probably gonna flip and go minus +105 So it's just more preference of style there I would go the minus 1.
75 in this situation cause I agree with you.
I think City, right, Rapps Lion Um rather just played the over them back city.
But yeah, city could easily cover it on their own.
That's why I like the over.
That's why I've leaned the over three and going to look to play life.
Yeah, for me personally, Go for it.
For me, For me personally, I don't mind paying that little extra juice.
Ah, I'm not too much of a big fan of half 1/2 losses, and that's just me. Personally.
I've been Jim Dow of a couple units on it, but like I said, I just pay the juice.
I'm OK with that.
Yeah, I think it was a regular game.
Like a league game, I think.
I mean, toward the minus 1.5.
But with it being one single elimination knockout game, civilly needs to win by one goal.
That's where I'd kind of stay away from that heavy juice.
So if if they went by one goal, I'd be a worse, much worse loss than just a plus press.
So for calling minus 1 30 Heavy juice, man. Twitter, Coppers.
Look the **** out because you love to see that minus 1 50 year greater on this place, I do a high juice for us.
I feel like so, you know, with the other sports, I would be way more into that minus 1 30 College football in college basketball.
I do that more often with money lines, but yeah, what soccer and how variable it is always your saving.
35 cents there for essentially the same play.
So that's where I would lean the plus one of five.
But you do what you want to do in all of our followers and listeners.
You play whatever you want. Apply it.
Do you think that confirms my, uh uh, I guess we lean towards the minus 1.
75 Take that plus price.
Well, I'll wrap it up for this week.
As usual, the air soccer show is brought to you by the breakdown sports dot Com Joey B's got his Champions League article out there, So if you want to check it out for the final two matches in there, definitely give that a read.
