Cup Tie Karma?

Ron leads a frenzied monochrome charge
Waving imaginary red cards
To later…turn his back, enacting I surrender
The Old Lady sighs, scant chance of victory gone
Watching a valiant Porto soldier on
Inspired by…an outstanding veteran defender.

Gigi loves olives but not Oliver! (Bedlam at the Bernabau)

Real Madrid v Juventus, CL Q-F. Real win 4-3 on agg, with last minute winning pen from Cristiano Ronaldo. Referee = Michael Oliver. 11/04/2018

Let’s start at the end
And just pretend
There was no emotion
That drove the commotion

Cristiano revs up
Strikes with full throttle
After such a long wait
What a lotta bottle!

Szczesny strolled on
Acting all cocky and cool
Last minute sub facing a pen
Oliver debatably brave or fool!!

The referee
Was surrounded, hounded and shoved
Many saying it shouldn’t be red
Simply because it’s retiring Gigi (beloved)

To emphasize, the referee
Was surrounded, hounded and shoved
Where it could have been one of many
The red was flashed to Gigi (be-gloved)

In all the furore
VAR gets a mention
But for such a 50/50 call
It wouldn’t have solved the tension

Benatia shoves in the back
Vasquez hits the ground
Depending on your allegiance
The ref’s whistle is unsound!

Real with last throw of the dice
Desperately, Toni Kroos he chips
Ronaldo peels and bounds
His header preceding tooted pips

The tie started out looking comfy
Real at home and ahead by three
But Juve bag a triple
To every neutral’s glee!
