This is a massive ask for Juve to come up with 3 goals playing like this..

They don't have to -- still group stages.

Ahh did not realize we are still in the group stage...Just taking a look at the tables it seems there are more than the normal # of groups with teams still alive for the final match of the group,,Will be an interesting final day for most groups in 2 weeks

Any comments on the WC draw?

Which is the group of death?  and the group of dearth?

I don't think there is a "Group of Death" this year; probably due to the change in the selection process. There are some groups that are interesting but only because the teams are closer in talent. Group D (Argentina, Croatia, Iceland, Nigeria) may be of most interest. Groups A (Russia, Uruguay, Egypt, Saudi Arabia) and H (Poland, Colombia, Senegal, Japan) are others where all four teams must feel they have a real opportunity to advance.

At 5-0 I think even Liverpool will see the game out from here. Coutinho with the hatty. They are so good going forward at times.

They are fun to watch. Their 23 goals in the group stage would have been a record if PSG had not scored 25. Still, not too shabby for a team selected from Pot C.

Liverpool could have used some of those goals today.  Gotta win games like this.  Gotta be ruthless.  Wasn't a PK for Everton, but still . . . need more than one goal out of all that possession and pressure. And the yo-yo between elation and frustration supporting the Reds continues.
