Knockout time.

The last eight round of this year’s Uefa Champions league recently concluded the round saw a few upsets and lived upon its hype.

Barcelona V Manchester United-

Manchester United’s fortunes were turned around since Ole Gunnar Solakager took over the Red Devils. They were in fine form in the league and their remarkable comeback against PSG in the round of 16. This gave them optimistic hope of going against Barcelona but none of that came into play.

Barcelona took a slender one-goal advantage to Camp Nou where they are nearly invincible and that was enough. A brace from the Barca’s talisman Lionel Messi helped by a mistake from David de Gea. Along with a wonderful strike by Coutinho helped Barca to the Semifinals of this season.

Liverpool V Porto

This was perhaps the most one sided tie both on paper and off it. Liverpool comfortably breezed past Porto with a aggregate score of 6-1. They will be facing Barcelona which is a exciting and mouth watering tie.

The front three of Sane , Firminho and Mo Salah has scored plenty of goals this season and would like to add to their tally against the Catalans.

Juventus V Ajax

The young high spirited team of Ajax took on the mighty Juventus. With Ronaldo in their ranks, the old lady was aiming for the European success but all didn’t go as planned. A 1-1 draw succeded by a 2-1 defeat at their home saw Juventus crash out of this season Champions League. The tie was well matched. Perhaps the young guns full of confidence after defeating Real Madrid wanted to win more than Juventus players.

Ajax will now take on Tottenham Hotspurs and would be hot to handle given their current form.

Manchester City V Tottenham.

The most exciting tie of the lot. Spurs took one-goal advantage to Etihad. Shambolic defense from both the teams made the 2nd leg a treat for the neutrals. The match had it all. Raheem Sterling’s strike which was disallowed by the VAR in controversial circumstances was the most thrilling moment. Spurs have progressed to their first ever European Semi final.

They will play a high spirited Ajax side who are fearless this can be a very good clash with both teams hungry for success.

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this
    website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a very good job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera.

  5. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment
    (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I
    wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any points for inexperienced blog writers? I’d certainly

  6. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
    page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
