What a night! I get asserting your physical presence but last night, Atletico Madrid acted and looked like bouncers for a mob boss.

Meanwhile in a galaxy far far away. At Anfield, Liverpool and Benfica are at play. A deficit to overcome, the latter, champions they want to become but the Scousers had the final say.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool secured a place in the last four for the third time in five seasons with a 6-4 aggregate scoreline after some uncharacteristic sloppiness saw them draw 3-3 in the second leg.

However, the rest of the world got to see the talent and skills of Darwin Nunez who made a menace of himself and helped Benfica give the scoreline some respect and give Liverpool fans, mild heart arrhythmia.

PREDICTION

If you’re not going to say it then I’ll say it. An All English Final is looming. Liverpool vs Manchester City.

After last year’s final disappointment to now-ousted Champions League winners, Chelsea, City will look to re-write the ending and possibly grab the treble of Premier League title, FA Cup and Champions League.

Liverpool, having fielded basically their second-string side against Benfica, will be going all out and Klopp adding another title to making it 2 Champions Leagues titles to his name.

As for the scoreline? 1 – 0 to Liverpool in extra time and should it go down to Penalties, 4 Liverpool, 3 Manchester City.

This weekend will be Liverpool’s first “trophy” when Mo Salah’s Egypt takes on Sadio Mane’s Senegal in the Africa Cup Of Nations final.

It wasn’t easy sailing for the Pharaohs as they needed extra time to secure their berth into the finals of the African continent showpiece with the game still locked at 0-0 after 120 minutes. Salah and his team held their nerve to secure a 3-1 win on penalties and remain on course in their chase for a record-extending eighth African crown.

Sadio Mane’s Senegal was a stark contrast as they needed normal time to beat Burkina Faso and continue their search for their first title.

The question however remains. Who will go back to Anfield as a champion? Whatever the outcome, “You never walk alone”.
