I wont lie, I missed it. Did you? Yeah I know ya’ll missed Leaguescroll but no, get it together. Am talking of the Champions League! Commenced just yesterday with a bang throwing bombshells left, right and centre.
Speaking of which, the centre of attraction was definately at the heart of Anfield as the hosts welcomed the French giants- Paris Saint-Germaine. With a goal fest from both sides, this match proved otherwise to be thriller. Nonetheless, a late tie breaker through off-the-bench Roberto Firmino gave the Reds an upper hand in the group standings. That’s what we call a super-sub!
Well, straight to order of the day; today’s fixtures won’t just be a walk in the park. With a lot of matches lined-up as from 1955hours and 2200hours, you know what it is. The defending champions- Real Madrid are at home against AS Roma and that could go only one way unless otherwise. AS Roma have proved it not once to be a hard nut to crack.
Well, the Red devils are away from home as they play against Swiss side- Young boys. This being a must win match for the Reds as Mourinho sets to redeem himself even more to prove his critics wrong. All in all, its still soccer and as we witnessed yesterday’s game- Internazionale pulling two late goals to beat Tottenham who couldn’t hold the lead any longer. 2-1 was the result.
Cristiano Ronaldo will this time round be on the visiting side as they play against Valencia in their opening UCL group fixture. Juventus will be missing Douglas Costa through unsportsmanlike conduct for a whole long 3 months. Nevertheless, a strong showpiece from Serie A giants is imminent.
Manchester City have an easy task at the Etihad Stadium as they host French side- Lyon. As much as this wont be a downhill task, their matches have always been a goals galore and entertaining to watch thus let’s brace ourselves for a masterpiece. Benfica host Bayern Munich in Portugal hence they are on the verge of recording their major win or otherwise having never won in any fixture between the two.
In a nutshell, brace yourselves for day two!
