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.
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.
The top three in the English Premier League have been in a league of their own this season, and are slowly breaking away from the rest.
While fourth-placed West Ham United (27 points) over the weekend defended their home ground at the London Stadium, beating Chelsea 3-2 to see them lose their grip of the peak, the Blues (33 points) are still in a comfortable position in third place.
That saw Manchester City (35 points) rise to the top, with Liverpool (34 points) on their tail.
What really sets the top three apart is not only their goal-scoring ability – but also their defence. They all boast an impressive Goal Difference (GD) record. Though only 5 clubs in the Premier League have a positive GD, The Blues, Reds and Citizens sit head and shoulders above the rest.
Catch them if you can.
While Man United sit in sixth place with a GD of one, West Ham in fourth with a GD of nine, Chelsea enjoys a GD of 26, Liverpool 32 and Man City 23.
They’ve all proven themselves worthy of the 2021/2022 title. And though the Premier League only recently crossed the halfway mark, it will be interesting to see who can maintain the momentum.
