It’s a Champions League episode, in which Musa and Ryan begin with Gladbach’s defeat at the hands of Guardiola’s frankly terrifying Manchester City in Budapest (5:41) before moving on to Real Madrid’s late win against 10-man Atalanta in Bergamo (21:43). They then, as promised, discuss their unease over UEFA’s handling of the knockout stages of European competitions, whether they should be taking place at all, and the mental and physical effects on the players in light of Josip Ilicic’s Marca interview (27:04). Then it’s on to the final Champions League games of this week, including Chelsea beating Atleti (39:31) and Bayern cruising to a 4-1 win over Lazio (45:48), as well as the USWNT winning the SheBelieves Cup (52:06).
