Hello Rank Squad!
We’re here with a new show – an immediate review of everything that went down in the Champions League this week as we returned to European action in the Round of 16. Every matchweek, we’re going to be ranking the three key takeaways from each of the games played that week, and looking at the games through that Ranks FC lense, to give you a sense of everything that we learned from each game.
We start with Dortmund 1-0 Chelsea, talking wastefulness, mistakes and why the reverse fixture should be a cracker; head to Milan 1-0 Tottenham to discuss Brahim Diaz, toothlessness and inexperience in Part 1.
Then in Part 2, we dive into Club Brugge 0-2 Benfica where Parkerball returned, Rafa Silva shone and why this tie is done; before finishing with PSG 0-1 Bayern where pace was the name of the game, Bayern lacked bodies in the box, and Galtier got it wrong.
