Musa and Ryan discuss this week’s men’s Champions League semifinal first legs, which were very different but equally engrossing. They begin at the Etihad with one of the all-time great semifinal games between Manchester City and Real Madrid (06:47), which saw Pep Guardiola’s team take a narrow 4-3 lead as they head to Madrid. They then go to Anfield, where Liverpool broke down a stubborn and well-organized Villarreal team to lead the tie 2-0 at the halfway stage (31:47). There’s love for some of the amazing midfielders on show this week, plus a quick mention of some Serie A title-race drama.
