The Champions League draw. What is there to add? Have a gander above and you can create any build-up narrative you like. There’s Zlatan’s revenge against Barca. There’s plucky, financially ruined Malaga against domestically out-of-form Dortmund. There’s the easy tie in Real Madrid v Galatasaray, and finally there’s Bayern Munich v Juventus, which is likely the connoisseur’s choice. All very attractive. What a coincidence klaxon.
England is in a tizzy of course because they’ve bombed out of the Big Cup completely, but should take consolation that three Premier League clubs are in the final eight of the Europa League. Moreover—whata a coincidence klaxon—they’ve been kept apart. An all-English final is a real possibility.
But it wasn’t all business: Leonardo used the occasion to propose to his girlfriend—Sky presenter Anna Billo—live on Sky Italia. Which wasn’t awkward at all. She said, “okay.” It was so cute, it’s almost as if it was sta—what a coincidence klaxon.
Sorry for the doubt but it’s been a trying couple of days.
