Meaningless in terms of advancement in this tournament. All games have meaning.

 

Except for the Carabao Cup...

This guy gets it.

But the description is why the game is on TV.

That said, Spurs-Olympiacos might have been the game that should have been on TV due to "meaning." Especially with the start Spurs had.

yeah, y'all are right.  when 2 of the 6 richest clubs in the world with some of the most insane talent in the world meet for only the 10th time in their history, it's meaningless.

i get that this match doesn't have much impact on the group stage table, but this game isn't meaningless.  this game is a barometer for both teams about where they are and where they can go.  and the talent here is sick.
Real up 2-0.
Scratch that.  Mbappe just scored.
 
Neymar and others were benched....so not accurate barometer...big clubs but thats all the match was an exhibition

Valencia blows an easy chance early.  This group is crazy with Chelsea, Valencia, and Ajax all with 7 points coming into play today.

Rodrigo just executed the worst miss i have ever seen, and keep in mind that Gervinho used to play for Arsenal. Wow. Wait until you see this miss. It's incredible.

1-1 at half.  Abraham off injured, doesn't look too good.  He was holding his right side/hip area.

This has been a good game.  Pulisic had a nice poacher's goal and then a great dummy setup Wass to equalize on a hell of a strike (or cross?)

Going to Ajax for the final match day, Valencia will rue those misses.

Took Ajax 2 minutes to score on Lyon with Ziyech getting it early. He has been on fire lately.

He's been on fire for 2 years now. Not sure why one of the big clubs doesn't snatch him up.

Ajax could still win today and it might not matter because of the draw. That final day is going to be a blood bath in Group H.

Being up 3-0 helps...

Suarez scores to put Barca up 1-0 over Dortmund.  They already lead Dortmund by 1 point so they're looking to clinch the group with a win today.

As much as they have sold last year holding on to him and Tadic has been huge.

Slavia Prague just had a boner on defense and gave up a literal open net goal to Inter (Lukaku). Inter is up 2-1. That ties them with Dortmund at 7 of all results hold.

 

Even Lukaku couldn't miss this

Halftime, Napoli up 3-0 and Liverpool and Salzburg tied 0-0.  It looks like Napoli will be through with 12 points.  Liverpool will win the group at 13 points with a win, be 2nd at 11 points with a draw.  Salzburg will finish 2nd with a win as long as Liverpool score 2 goals or fewer.
