Listening to Tim Vickery on the radio saying it’s a master stroke as it firstly shows that Spain is ready to host major games and that boosts their 2030 World Cup bid (ahead of the South American bid) and also introduces the precedent of playing club games on a different continent, which is something Real and Barca are very keen on 

 

Good points.  I like Tim Vickery too. Really knowledgeable and seems like a good bloke.

 

If Madrid ever play a league game anywhere else but Spain I'll burn my Segio Ramos boxers and never watch them again.

Away goals do not count double and no ET, straight to penalties

No. 

 

It's effectively become a one off final on neutral ground (country and continent).

Are both those rules standard for this competition or added because of the Madrid element?

 

Straight to penalties seems odd...only really used when teams can't be bothered with the tournament, or the result isn't that important.

I don't think I've ever seen an indirect free kick given in the box for anything other than a pass back.

Bizarre. I would need to open the rule book for that one.

Looks like it's not just Scottish referees who make it up as they go along.

Technically it's the right decision if he deemed that dangerous play.

I was talking nonsense it seems as was The Sun

 

Does the Copa Libertadores final have extra time?
Extra time is not played in South American club competitions.

River Plate vs Boca Juniors will go straight to penalties if a winner can't be found in 90 minutes.

If this goes to pens i fear for the guy who misses, he possibly needs to have a quick think about where he lives from tonight on.

Maidana doesn’t look like a centre half many forwards would enjoy playing against. 

The skill level in the game is fantastic though. Every player on the pitch has a great first touch, even when the ball is coming to them at serious pace.

That commentator was so bad he makes Rob McLean sound like David Begg.

Watched it on Freesports channel. Don't know who the commentator was but he carried the entire game. No "experts" in a studio, no sidekick during play, just him. Did a superb job. 

 

Fantastic match. As a neutral, I don't think I've enjoyed a live game that much since I was a kid.

What an advert for the game, that was a  brilliant 120 minutes of football. 1 touch football played at pace and the ball was hardly of the grass all game. I hope CL was watching.

I hope he was watching too. For no other reason than the fact that he would have enjoyed it.

Funny to think that the South American Champions were decided at the Bernabéu on Sunday and the current European Champions are playing there tonight kent mean.

Was there at the weekend, went to Valencia v Sevilla and then Alcorcón v Reus and River V Boca on the Sunday.

 

it was crazy, stadium was full one hour before the game and never experienced an atmosphere like it. It was unreal the volume which was constant for 4 hours. We were in with the River fans behind the goal and spoke to many of them who had travelled across from South America just for the game and didn’t know if they would have jobs or wives to go back to but couldn’t miss their biggest ever game. Many of them were in tears at full time. 

 

Would love to go go to South America to experience more of that. An unforgettable weekend.
