So the Champions League match-whore that is Munich vs Madrid is back to pleasure our eyes once again tonight. The stakes are big; Bayern are aiming to have a home game in the final and Real are looking to set the bar for Barcelona tomorrow. But as with any frequently played fixture, there’s some beef.
The source of this prime steak comes from the 1988 European Cup Quarter-final and Real Madrid forward/psychopath Juanito. In particular the way he tried to itch a scratch that German legend Lothar Matthaus didn’t have on his back and his face. With his boot. Italics.
Despite the ref’s best sheparding, he couldn’t keep Juan from getting himself a five year ban. Incidentally Real won the tie over two legs 3-4.
