Hey everyone! It’s apparently ‘Old Farmer’s Day’ according to a random website I found so... happy old farmers? Go congratulate the old farmers in your life for being old and farming. Speaking about farmers, yesterday’s UCL games really embraced the farmer’s league mantra.

It was a day of ties, draws, terrible refereeing, and crap soccer. Of the 8 UCL games, only three ended with a team taking three points and none of the eight finished with more than two goals. Some of the notable fixtures include:

Maccabi Haifa 2 - 0 Juventus

That’s right! In easily the most, and only, exciting game of the matchday Israeli outfit Maccabi Haifa defeated Juventus 2-0. Juventus are bad, very, very bad. They’re 8th in Seria A and are third in their UCL group with only three points. In order to qualify for the Champions League Knockout stages, they have to win their remaining two games against Benfica and Paris Saint Germain. I don’t think that’s happening but hey, at least they’ve decided to keep Allegri as their coach to keep playing some of the worst soccer in the to five leagues.

Copenhagen 0-0 Manchester City

Good news for Dortmund, Manchester City dropped points! The English side failed to beat the Danish outfit away. The first half of this game included three VAR reviews and saw Sergio Gomez get sent off. Unfortunately, Dortmund also dropped points to Sevilla so they couldn’t click 1st place today

AC Milan 0 - 2 Chelsea

Chelsea continued their revival under Graham Potter as they beat AC Milan pretty. Dortmund’s former star striker, Aubameyang. I'm happy to see him back in UCLA and that h gott off Barcelona considering the problems they have had with wages
