Champions League Play offs draw 2017/18
Technically my interest in European football ended with last night’s debacle in Slovenia, but truth is no matter how that game went the Champions League draw today held a lot of interest for me. Not least to see if my half wish, half prediction would come true, that is for Liverpool to get drawn with Hoffenheim. Well I got my wish on that count at least and a little something extra too, getting a new picture of Hansi from the draw. As nice as that is I wish I’d saved my luck for Freiburg. Them having lost hurts, admitting they deserved to lose even more so. I wasn’t under any illusions about it being easy, I watched Domzale play in the second leg of the previous tie. They showed in that game they were a team with plenty of fight in them and that worried me, and I guess I was right to be worried. Not that it matters anymore, the next big question is who to root for, Hoffenheim or Liverpool. Normally I would go with the Germans but this time I feel inclined to go the other way.
