Musa and Ryan reflect on the midweek round of Champions League fixtures via the mailbag. Before they do, they big-up Stephanie Frappart, who became the first woman to referee a men’s Champions League fixture, after she took charge for Juventus vs. Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday (04:55). They then discuss a wonderful assist in the Lokomotiv Moscow vs. Red Bull Salzburg game, as well as the other game in the group, which saw Atlético Madrid draw with Bayern (07:10). There were plenty of questions about Olivier Giroud, who scored four (including a perfect hat trick) in Chelsea’s 4-0 win in Sevilla (12:45), as well as how far Frank Lampard’s side can go in the competition. There’s also chat about Manchester United and PSG (20:33), a wild Group B (32:36), Irfan Kahveci’s hat trick, Dortmund vs. Lazio, and much more (41:38).
