Might still be scoreless, but man is Bayern really been pressing Dortmund.
Edit - and literally on cue with my post.

Robben makes it 1-0. Bayern was dominant in the 1st half.
They really were. Really would have liked to see the Schweinsteiger-Martinez hookup result in a goal, but very good goalkeeping. Still can't believe Kroos didn't bury that one.
Joey Barton has me cracking up. He's ripping on Ibra's nose.
I figured Joey was in jail!
Great win as expected today. Bayern should have connected on a few more goals but I will take the win.
It's only a matter of time.
I see Rafa is done at the end of the season.
That was going to happen the second he walked in. His remarks towards the fans and Roman will make the final day (if he's even still around then) something to see.
Meyer4Prez "This is wut happens when ur team site analyst are huge homers glad Bill K+Alex G keep it real instead of getting our hopes up."
He could be done today. Can't come soon enough. Rafa OUT.
Reminder of huge match in Italy this afternoon...Napoli v Juventus: 2 v 1 in the league table. Napoli hasn't scored in 4.5 matches...should be interesting.
Don't watch much Serie A, but the first half has been very entertaining. Cavani got a little lucky right there too not to be sent off.
I'm hoping for a scoreless draw. By some grace of God, Andreazolli has found something in this 3-4-1-2 thing he has working and Roma is finding points.
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Cavani should've been sent off. That was an intentional elbow to the face...no other way to put it. It does make for a better 2nd half with him on, but that was a red.
2-1 final in Madrid. Real Madrid take another clasico heading into the big matchup in Manchester.
Didn't see the game, but saw their starting lineup. Impressive result.
Madrid's admittedly weak starting lineup scored first (Benzema) in the 6th minute, but didn't create many chances after that. Barcelona controlled the first half with possession and got a nice goal from Messi. Late in the 2nd half, Ronaldo and Khedira subbed on and the entire game changed. Madrid were extremely dangerous after that. Sergio Ramos scored the winning goal on a corner kick header. Madrid's taller attackers/defenders have been really paying off on set pieces lately. After that, Morata missed a breakaway after a sublime chip from Pepe and then Ronaldo hit the crossbar on a free kick. With Ronaldo on, Madrid were completely controlling the game as they did on Tuesday. Varane looked good again in defense. Barcelona may have deserved a PK at the end, but it was tough to tell if there was even contact on the stream I was watching. In the end, this game means very little in the standings, but it is another big morale boost for Madrid, and another sign of concern for Barcelona who have now lost 3 of 4. Victor Valdes received a straight red card after the final whistle for verbal attacks on the ref. It was nice to see Benzema get a goal (inconsistent striker play has been a problem this year) and it was nice to see the Castilla guys (Callejon, Morata, etc) getting to play an entire Clasico.
Surprisingly, this is Real Madrid's first La Liga home victory over Barcelona since 2008. They've done much better at Camp Nou (and in other competitions). However, Barcelona is the only team in La Liga to beat Real Madrid in the Bernabeu in the last 2.5 seasons. Real Madrid have only lost once at home in the past two seasons, last year to Barcelona. Impressive statistics, which make the away losses to Getafe, Betis, etc, all the more frustrating..

Thanks for the rundown. For the first time in awhile I actually enjoyed an Everton game. Steven Pienaar was on top of his game today and played absolutely lights out. It was only Reading, but a game Everton needed nonetheless.
Even on HD, it was tough to see if it was a penalty. It was very borderline if contact occurred, but it was also a foolish challenge from Ramos considering the circumstances. Great header from him to win the match. Jose is 2 for 2 with the biggest one remaining. I read City is allowing Real access to the Etihad for training to bolster their chances. I don't recall a round of 16 match with this much hype in some time. Should be great.
Jose requested to train at Etihad citing that he was concerned with United spying on the training session. Let the mind games begin...
Jose is a genius. I don't care what anyone says. CFC hasn't been the same since he left. No club is the same after he leaves.
USA u20 fell to Mexico in the Championship gm but what a good run they had
Real v Manu, first half was a tactical game. Real took initiative in first 10 minutes and got a couple chances, but nothing really dangerous. Manu had a number of good chances the best of which hit post on a corner and Welbeck hit rebound directly at keeper sitting in corner of goal. Welbeck is due, Rooney sitting on bench, DeMaria is out at half vorletz, KaKa subbed for him. Ronaldo, Ozil and Co have been very quiet.
Dortmund is not on TV here, but look to have game in hand with goals from Santana (Gotze assist) and second goal by Gotze. This was the game I wanted to see, but for free you (at least what in on channels i pay for) take what you can get.
Second half update, RM getting out hustled right now, gave up goal on deflection off Ramos, Nani hustled to save ball, passed into middle and Wellbeck deflected towards goal, off Ramos and into net. Pace has since picked up for Real.
Wow, totally crap red for Nani. Clearly a dangerous play went for ball with high leg, but other players was coming towards him possibly blinded and ref gave Red. Gunna be tough for MU. Real subbed Modrich to get more O. Dominating possession for Real right now.

Well this game just got real interesting.
loco, you don't live in the US right? I actually have Dortmund on two different channels.
I hate ManU, but that was an awful call. Just awful. ManU have played well, and I hope the call doesn't cost them the tie.
