FC Barcelona "messied" themselves in the semifinal of the Champions League with 1-1 at home against a Paris St. Germain team that won some friends today, and surely deserved better than what happened today. The difference was Messi. Make no mistake; FC Barcelona are an outstanding side, but it is Messi that makes them outstanding, and I think that showed today.
In the meantime Bayern Munich was again powerful against Juventus, winning 2-0, and probably presenting themselves as favourites for the title that eluded them last year against Chelsea.
Yesterday Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund made it to the semifinals. Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and FC Barcelona were all in the semifinal last year as well, but it was the fourth side (Chelsea) who ran away with the title.
I hope the same happens this year.
