We weren't allowed to turn up in both games, they were better by a distance just the same as Inter are better than them. Do you think on the leverkusen forum tonight there fans are saying we gave Inter to much respect or in reality just accepting they got beat by a better team same as we were..All over - Inter through as predicted.
Leverkusen are a decent side but not as good as people have been saying. We didn't turn up in either game.
So Leverkusen are just a Couple of levels above Rangers, and Inter are several more.Think so?
Their keeper had a brilliant game, he's the only reason they weren't embarrassed. Should really have been about 6-1.
They had empty possession, don't recall a single decent chance other than the goal.Leverkusen had a lot of the ball in and around Inter's area. Ball was pinging around there quite a bit.
Leverkusen could have scored 6, but that's not how it works.
Sums it up, yeah.So Leverkusen are just a Couple of levels above Rangers, and Inter are several more.
Always makes me laugh how people try to read too much into that sort of stuff. Like there is any merit in viewing an Inter v Leverkusen game through a Rangers prism.
That wasn't how I saw it, but whatever. Stats suggested otherwise:They had empty possession, don't recall a single decent chance other than the goal.
Inter battered them, had a perfectly good goal disallowed, missed several sitters... That was far more one sided than our game against them.
18 shots against 9, 7 on target against 2, 1 save against 5, perfectly good goal disallowed... Thought it was a hammering personally that should have been 4-0 inside half an hour.That wasn't how I saw it, but whatever. Stats suggested otherwise:
10 shots to 5 Inter
59% possession for Leverkusen
6 corners to 3 for Leverkusen
I had Inter on my coupon and it certainly felt like Leverkusen had chances.
They deserved to go through, however if that had been the first leg the other night, that's not a bad result to take back to Ibrox. I think we got them at the wrong time. Probably would have went out, but not as convincingly.We would have given Bayer Leverkusen a better game pre-January.
Good side, some cracking players but not the level some made them out to be.
