Footy week-in-review: April 4-11

Time to update some thoughts after so long:

-Jordan Webb with another winner for Hougang United as Cheetahs steals a win
-I thought SAF would win and they did. Indra is king but supposed absence of Qiu Li was crucial.
-Tampines come back, yet again, against Etoile. Again it was 2-1.

-Nagatomo started his first game for Inter.
-Roma reignite their European chase at Udine despite being underpressure for much of 1H. 90th minute winner from Totti.
-Juve come from behind in another goals galore afternoon kickoff fixture as Luca Toni finds the winner (first for Juve?)
-my Milan maintains chase but Ibra is off again
-Los Che whacks the hell out of a european overdosed Villarreal. Yellow submarines were never in the game.
-Young Boys, Rosenborg played good assists
-Lyon wakes up from slumber, so does Lisandro Lopez with a late late late^100 goal! surprisingly they still could afford a missed PK from Ederson, himself coming back from a 9 mth absence with a fully torn hamstring sustained on 1st cap with Samba boys

The UCL earlier in the week were mostly a no-brainer but not having a stronger will to participate in the action was the only sore point. Well looks like El Classico will play out a record no. of times this season. My Barca is defintely a shoo-in for La Liga, but i won't be surprise if Jose has something to show when he gets a another shot against his rivals. He's good at knockouts. But the man usually takes 2 seasons to whip up his team into contention of European glory, but the strong base of Real initially might shorten that time frame needed? Im sure he would have seen the 5-0 demolition more than 100 times, with that being his biggest defeat to his biggest rivals. Fireworks expected.
