A few upsets today in general, but none as massive as the game I watched today in Barcelona. I sat down on the couch with my plate of spaghetti and meatballs, expecting to flip through between the Liverpool-Lyon and Barca-Rubin Kazan games.

Just like any other person, I was expecting Barca to absolutely slaughter Kazan. The game started very interesting, Kazan scored a golazo in the 2nd minute and I was glued to the game after that. It wasn’t particularly entertaining, but I was amazed that Rubin Kazan played such a perfect game against the European Champions. They had cut off all the defensive angles perfectly. They made defending look like an art, as opposed to other teams who simply put 11 men behind the ball without a plan and then hoof the ball away. Kazan actually passed their way up the field out of the back; they played a very commendable game and eventually went on to win the game 2-1:

In the other game in the group, Inter were held to a draw at home against Dynamo Kiev (2-2). Inter now only have 3 points from 3 games, this group has absolutely turned inside out and upside down due to Inter underperforming and Rubin Kazan over-performing.
