Soccer is a major money maker for any agent, so why not be informed regarding the biggest club competition in the world. Yes, the UEFA Champions League is the second biggest soccer tournament (biggest being the World Cup), but the quality of it is higher. Most of the biggest names participate of the World Cup, but some of them don’t due to their countries not qualifying. This does not happen with the Champions League, for the biggest teams of Europe have the biggest names in soccer. From favorites Real Madrid to underdogs Basel, let take a look at this year’s best out of 16 first leg games.
Real Madrid on their way to their tenth trophy last year, met with Shalke 04 in the exact same stage they meet this year. Although the result was the same in Madrid taking the victory, it wasn’t last year’s catastrophic 6-1 loss in front of their home crowd in Veltins-Arena. Last week’s 2-0 with goals from Ronaldo and Marcelo should be a comfortable lead for Madrid awaiting the second leg at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
Another rematch from last Year
Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain met during last year’s quarter finals. PSG came out with thier hearts broken from this one. They won the first leg 3-1 at Parc des Princes but the penalty scored by Eden Hazard would prove to be deadly. It ran minute 87 at Stanford Bridge and Demba Ba score the 2-0 that would see Chelsea go through due to the away goals rule. After this week’s 1-1 in Paris, are PSG destined to repeat last year’s fate?
David vs Goliath
It is the biblical story that is brought to our minds when pairing German powerhouse Bayern Munich against the brave Shakhtar Donetsk. But the Ukrainians have proven to be more than meets the eye. The 0-0 result in Arena Lviv is a clear indicator of this. Can they withstand the the onslaught Pep Guardiola and company will have for them at Allianz Arena? A draw with goals would see Shakhtar bring down a clear favorite for the trophy.
Basel and Porto are clearly not favorites to win the tournament at any sportsbook. That does not mean they wont go down without a fight. Porto fans do know what it is to win it all since their team has won the tournament twice on 1986–87 and 2003–04 editions. Switzerland’s Basel on the other hand has not been able to advance further than the Quarter-Finals and this back in 1974 when it was still know as the European Cup. Portuguese and Swiss shared a 1-1 on the first leg in St. Jakob-Park, so everything will be solved on Porto’s home ground: Estádio do Dragão.
