Despite my intense dislike of Chelsea, I can't help but be impressed with new manager Thomas Tuchel and I wouldn't bet against them winning the trophy!
A well-organized and disciplined display made it look so comfortable against a Real Madrid who huffed and puffed but just weren't allowed to show any magic! Did we have any winners? Wait till the end!
And so to today and with both Europa League 2nd leg Semi finals taking place, let's choose this game...
I think it would take a miracle to see Arsenal in the Europa League final, winning it, even more so but that's what it will take to see them in European action next season as it's even more doubtful they will get in with their league position. So is it all doom and gloom?
No, they have Aubameyang back and also possibly Tierney and Lacazette and if they turn up with a 'nothing to lose' attitude as opposed to a 'heavily under pressure' attitude, they might just give themselves a fighting chance. Would also help if they gave our boy Nketiah a decent run and let him start the game!
Prediction: Arsenal 2 : 2 Villareal - First Goalscorer: Aubameyang
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 20.00 BST
The Small Print
In the first goalscorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition will roll over if there is no winner. If more than one person chooses the same first goalscorer or correct score, the prize is shared and everyone gets a little upvote! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget the new rule that only people with a rep of 45 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. The bonus will be added to any winnings ONLY if Leeds United win and/or Man U lose and all payouts will never exceed 50% of post payout. Other bonuses paid out at my discretion.
The Winners were...
Well, just one player got the correct 2-0 scoreline and that was @tokutaro22 so well done mate, 5500+500 tokens are on their way to you.
Rather surprisingly, I thought, no one got Werner as the first goalscorer and so appearance fees go out to; @numpypython, @jfang003, @hykss.sports, @tobywalter, @marvinix, @friendlymoose, @savagetobi, @yeckingo1, @mayorkeys, @chrisparis, @harpreetjanda, @jersteemit and @pusen
Check very carefully please guys to make sure I didn't miss anyone as I had to transfer via the wallet today which is an even bigger pain than using Hive Engine which doesn't seem to be available at the moment!
