Episode 2310: Atletico Forget To Score
This Champions League season has seen Spain establish itself as the home of counter-attacking football.
Unfortunately for Atletico Madrid, they forgot that even counter-attacking involves some attacking – until it was too late. And so Manchester City join Real Madrid, Liverpool and Villarreal in the semis.
Jonathan Wilson joins us to analyse the second legs. Has Diego Simeone become a parody of himself? Why should Unai Emery have a particular level of club at which he excels? And might Julian Nagelsmann be still too… young? to coach Bayern?
Not even a 10th straight Bundesliga title will erase the sting from a premature #UCL exit. @jonawils on Bayern Munich, the downside that comes with being judged on so little and Julian Nagelsmann’s first season in chargehttps://t.co/qJAR9wFKyM pic.twitter.com/IX2E3xGldR

If Mack Hansen went to the trouble of getting a tattoo of his Connacht teammate Oisín Dowling, surely Eoin can expect the same dedication from his own colleagues https://t.co/PtGEWl2Ty5 pic.twitter.com/Px746LErs4
