WHAT a night it was in the Bernabeu as Real Madrid rode their luck to stay on course for a third successive Champions League success.
Twenty-four hours after Roma's remarkable comeback to KO Barcelona we saw another inspired Italian display – although this time it ended in agony.
Cristiano Ronaldo's injury-time penalty and Gianluigi Buffon's red card completed the drama and the holders live to fight another day.
Nothing much happened in the second semi as Bayern qualified after a 0-0 draw with Sevilla and that beat my Top Treble. The SS was Ronaldo to score first but of course he netted last.
My £10 to £1000 on Twitter remains on £700 after I decided not to put up three selections for a vote. Two of them would have won – Wolves and overs at Real – to take me over the line but I'm waiting until Saturday for the next bet.
Tonight it's the Europa League's turn to take centre stage so will there be more drama? All four homes face a deficit so will there be any glorious comebacks?
Arsenal take a 4-1 lead to CSKA Moscow, Marseille trail Leipzig 1-0, Red Bull Salzburg are 4-2 down to Lazio and Sporting Lisbon trail Atletico Madrid 2-0.
I've posted a separate preview and like last week I'm going for goals. My btts treble was a Marseille goal short and I'm taking the same teams tonight.
Elsewhere Shrewsbury travel to Bradford in League One aiming to close the gap on Wigan and Blackburn and should win as long as they're not suffering a hangover from their EFL Trophy defeat to Lincoln on Sunday.
