The second half of the Champions League yesterday shocked me. I mean, after conceding just three goals in the entire competition WTF?!?! The way Modric and Isco broke down the Juve defense was surprising enough but Buffon too? Two of the goals only likely going in because they were deflected counts for something... By injury time I was like, blow the whistle, blow the whistle, end the misery.

Yup. I thought we were in for something special after the Mandzukic goal for the ages. Juventus crumbled.

After the Sergio Ramos red card incident, I have no trouble understanding why they remain, to me at least, Franco's team.

The second half was very disheartening as a Juventus fan.

Real Madrid made some nice adjustments at half and Juventus could not solve the new problems Real Madrid was causing them. Juventus just could not get the ball out of their half.

Despite the score, the Mandzukic goal seems like the thing that will be most remembered from the match.
