I’m not sure if I’m upset or relieved that I won’t quite be able to watch this thing live. Fellipe will be here for the burden/honor of documenting this most depressing/amazing beatdown/comeback (cross out as necessary).

Big Game King Kai’s back and gets the start, as do the rested duo of Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kanté, all of whom will need to turn back the clock to 2021 at the very least. Not sure who’s going to score the goals we need to over the 0-2 first leg deficit, but hey.

Ancelotti sticks with the tried and true for Real Madrid.
