Champions League Takeaway: Last 16 Set, Group F Finishes in Style, United Crash Out, Real Hate Losing, Is The PL’s Power Overstated and Everything Else!

14 December 2023

Hello Rank Squad!

It’s time for the last Champions League Takeaway of 2023, and the last ever one discussing the group stages as we know them, with the format set to change next year. And there’s plenty to get through!

We start with Wednesday’s action, with three big takeaways on whether Newcastle were right to throw caution to the wind, why PSG are struggling to score goals right now, and how Barcelona’s crisis meter is growing dangerously close to explosion, before rounding up the rest of the action.

Then in Part Two, we take a look at Tuesday – talking Manchester United’s exit and whether the ‘true power’ of the Premier League is overstated, why Real Madrid’s desire not to lose is so impressive, and how a Benfica castoff helped them find a backbone, and then run through everything else that happened too.

It’s Ranks!
