After 10 years, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are no longer taking over the Champions League. Liverpool is a game changer with Juergen Klopp’s unrelenting boom. However, that is not the only imprint of the UEFA Champions League 2018/19.
It is impossible to talk about the Champions League in 2018/19 but ignore the incredible comeback. This is the season that deserves to go down in history with many memorable emotions. Choking scenarios take place continuously, directly pushing the world into a real roller coaster in the knockout round.
On March 6, 2019, no one imagined Ole Solskjaer’s Manchester United could turn against PSG after losing 0-2 at the eighth round in the table to determine Marcus’s 90 and 3 minute score. Rashford. What is the most dramatic thing here?
The answer is that Rashford has never scored 11m before in a professional career. So the number 10 of MU dare to perform and defeat goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. Stress, daring, arguing and risking the match at the Parc des Princes became the undeniable highlight of the Champions League 2018/19.
Nearly a week after the wonderful night at the Parc des Princes, the whole European stage moved to Juventus’ Allianz Stadium, where Cristiano Ronaldo showed himself to be the king of Europe’s most prestigious arena with a hat-trick to help Juventus going upstream, thereby knocking Atletico Madrid 3-0 to continue after losing 0-2 in the first leg.
The semi-finals continue to be climbing climbers not for the faint of heart. Liverpool was destroyed at the Camp Nou after Leo Messi’s perfect night with a score of 3-0. Leave it at Anfield, where defender Andrew Robertson wrote on They Player’s Tribune that he “felt sorry for those who had to go there”, Liverpool crushed Barca 4-0 to advance to the final.
Spurs need 45 minutes of the second half of the second leg in the Netherlands to turn every effort and advantage of Ajax’s three goals into a cup. A hat-trick with Moura’s goal in the final minute of the second half brought Tottenham into the first Champions League final in history.
