    This game was really about finishing. Shakhtar had more of the game in terms of creating chances but Liverpool still created some great chances but just couldn't finish them. The game began in controversy when Ogbonna took down Traore when Traore would have been off for a 1v1 and was only given a yellow. Lucky break there for Liverpool. Ultimately it didn't matter. Liverpool nearly scored when the ball bounced all over the box and came to Sturridge who tried a scissor volley from close but Pyatov saved and Shakhtar quickly moved up field for a counter. The ball was eventually intercepted by a Liverpool defender but Douglas Costa picked his pocket and was off to the races. He wound up in an acute angle of a shooting position but still somehow drilled it into the left corner to open the scoring. The second goal came when Costa, who created havoc all game with his speed and dribbling, got down the line and crossed for Traore who bent down and headed it in unmarked. The last goal came when a Liverpool player just ran through a Shakhtar player in the box and was called for a PK. Fernandinho finished the PK with a crafty chip. 3-0 the final. Could have been more like 5-3 or any number in between as both teams created great scoring chances by the bushel.​

    :yellowcard:(10') :yellowcard::redcard: (21') Pirlo

    A rainy game. Juve's plan seemed to be to play physical against Tottenham, but with Pirlo getting sent off early, it was hard to continue that plan. Torres is starting to find some form, and Sigurdsson has been nothing short of spectacular thus far.

    Good game, ConiglioSG, and good luck with Juve!

    This game started with pure domination. Shakhtar completely dominated the first half, ending with 16 shots compared to Juventus' 0. However, Buffon made great save after great save to keep Juventus within striking distance. Shakhtar was only able to put one in when Traore used some fancy footwork to get around a few Juventus defenders before trying to tap it under a sliding Buffon. The ball hit Buffon and flopped well up into the air toward goal and Fernandinho was able to beat his man for the header and knocked it in on the goal line. That was all Shakhtar could get passed Buffon with all 16 shots. The second half was a much different story. Juventus came out with some fire and touched the ball around well, creating a few chances. They very nearly equalized when a clearance was sent toward Neymar. A Shakhtar defender got between Neymar and the ball and chested it down but for some reason did nothing after and Neymar took it and was off to the races. He was funneled into a slight angle for the shot and Neymar went near post. Pyatov was able to save nicely with a kick save but Shakhtar dodged a bullet. They were very nearly equalized with Juventus' first shot of the game. Shakhtar had some good chances in the second half, all of which were again denied by Buffon. Buffon had a brilliant string of saves when Douglas Costa let one rip and Buffon dove to block it toward the middle leaving the goal gaping. Henrik Mkhitaryan headed toward that gaping goal but Buffon got up quickly and dove to bat that header away as well. Shakhtar could not believe some of the chances they couldn't get passed the Italian #1. Juventus had a few more great opportunities to equalize but their finishing was poor. The game should have been a blow out but could have also been a draw with some of the great chances Juventus got in the 2nd. Good improvement in the 2nd ConiglioSG and good game. ​

    Kind of a scrappy game. Both keepers were on top form. Friedel made his return to home soil and looked fantastic. It really could/should have been a draw.
