Away goals

I hate the away goals rule. It says that after both legs of a tie are played and the scores are level then goals scored on your opponents ground are considered double.

I am currently listening to the radio and Lyon are playing Bayern Munich. Bayern win the first leg in Munich 1-0 and have just scored again in Lyon so they are leading 2-0. This means that if Lyon could score a goal to make it 2-1 then they could made make Bayern feel nervous and force them into an error. WRONG Lyon have to score 3 because if it is 2-2 then Bayern win on away goals. This means that the excitement levels are reduced and teams play defensively or negatively and the game excitement is shortened.
