  1. Christopher Harris says:

    Nice goal by Diego Costa to open up the scoring for Atletico Madrid.

  2. FreddyFreak says:

    Robben is one of the more fantastic actors of our generation.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      He’s one of those really annoying players that dazzles you with incredible skills but infuriates soccer fans when he dives.

      Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid look unstoppable. 3-1 up and 4-1 on aggregate.

  3. hoosiergunner says:

    Not the result we needed, but probably the best we could have hoped for. Not bad Gunners!
