City Game + UEFA Cup Ties

City were still leading 2-0 to go with 6 minutes to go on aggregate.

They've concede 2, one that was a hand-ball by the Aalborg player and one a penalty since and it's about to go to extra-time :rofl:

Galatasaray vs Hamburg seemed amazing.
1-1 1st leg.
Gala go 2 up with goals from Baros and Kewell :D
Then hamburg score 3 with a last minute winner from Olic. 2 goals from Guerrero.

The draw is on tomorrow sometime after the CL draw.

PSG scored at 81 minutes, totally undeserved, as they did squat the entire game. Braga practically out, having to score 2 now.

I wonder if Robinho is going to score his penalty (assuming he volunteers)?

EDIT: apologies Robinho was substituted. so no chance of him taking a penalty.

It's a close enough match to a Panenka penalty.

Antonín Panenka - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Antonín Panenka (born December 2, 1948 in Prague) is a former Czech footballer.

An attacking midfielder known for the quality of his passing and his free kicks, Panenka played for Bohemians Prague for most of his career, joining the club as a youth in 1959. He came to international prominence playing for Czechoslovakia in the 1976 European Championship; Czechoslovakia reached the final, where they faced Germany. After extra time, the result was 2-2, and so the first penalty shootout in a European Championships final ensued. All the kicks were converted, until Germany's fourth penalty taker, Uli Hoeneß, ballooned his shot over the bar. With the score 4-3, Panenka stepped up to take the fifth and final Czechoslovakian penalty, to win the match. Despite the immense pressure, he fooled German goalkeeper Sepp Maier into diving for a save, before coolly chipping the ball straight down the middle and into the net[1]. The sheer cheek of the goal led a watching French journalist to dub Panenka "a poet", and to this day his winning kick is one of the most famous ever, making Panenka's synonymous with that particular style of penalty kick.

Quaresma especially likes to score these, but my fondest memory of a similar penalty was scored by Hélder Postiga against poor David James in 2004. Probably not your fondest memories, hey, guys? ;)

Don't worry, the curse will be broken.



It was a great game, worthy of a final.

There's no way City will beat Hamburg. The tie will be over after the 1st leg. City's away record is dreadful.
