It’s getting rather ridiculous now when it comes to Bayern Munich v Arsenal and Barcelona v PSG.
I have been following the CL closely this season and when it boils down to the last 16, given that Bayern Munich didn’t win their group, I just knew they were going to get stuck with Arsenal. I also knew that FC Barcelona was going to play against Paris Saint-Germain.
It’s so predictable, it’s boring now.
Boring that we’ve seen Bayern-Arsenal matches at least 8 times over the last five years. Boring that Real Madrid always seems to get the easiest opponents available. Boring that Barcelona can’t quit PSG. And had Arsenal finished second? They would’ve gotten Barcelona. Another boring fixed rigging.
