Extremely proud of the way the hoops have played tonight and in the first leg, Juventus have simply ridden their luck and aren't good enough to win this competition.
I would be extremely proud of how well Celtic played too but I don't think you can win 5-0 over two legs by riding your luck. You came up against a more clinical team with a very intelligent and methodically managed defence.
Personally, I think penalties if anything will be their downfall.
How dangerous is it? was Hulk raped and murdered recently? Have you ever been to Russia? Cause St. Petersburg is quite pretty and the people are ok. The biggest problem is that Russians can't speak English even if their life depended on it which makes it rather hard to live there for the foreigners.
I was originally talking about Anzhi, but Zenit will get brought in at the end..
Due to armed conflict in Dagestan, the club’s players live and train in a village near Moscow, at a training base previously used by Saturn Moscow. The club fly in for home matches, which have a heavy security presence
The fact they train over 1,000 miles away says it all.
Hulk, Danny, Witsel (who is the least talented of the Witsel,Defour & Fellaini trio for Belgium) and Eto'o, barring them you're hard pressed to find any household names in the league that are truly known world wide.
It's only early days in Hulks Zenit career, considering they paid between €40 million and €60 million depending on who you hear it from, he has caused nothing but problems for the team.
Oh and speaking of Hulk:
Hulk was the target of racial abuse by Zenit fans who opposed black players playing for the club. In September 2012, a fake bomb was found at the club's training ground, accompanied by a picture of the player and a note that read "Hulk out!
At least Celtic played the games fairly and weren't cheating and throwing themselves to the ground at every opportunity, I have lost all respect for Andrea Pirlo due to him acting like a fucking pansy.
