Liverpool Again Come Up Short at Napoli

Liverpool Again Come Up Short at Napoli

“Don’t you worry, if you lose in Naples, then you end up winning the Champions League!", said Carlo Ancelotti to Jurgen Klopp after his side had beaten Liverpool in a game that could have gone either way. The reigning European Champions had traveled to Naples to begin their 2019-20 European campaign. It is fair to say that their defense did not begin on a great note. For the first 80 minutes it was difficult to point to a team in …

Champions League Final A Catch-22 Situation For Spurs

The Champions League final next weekend leaves me in a position I would rather not be in. It pits Liverpool, the club I have supported since 1988 against Tottenham, a team I have an immense soft spot for. I wrote a piece a couple of years back about Spurs being the poster-boys for sustainable spending and have long maintained that they deserve a trophy to show for their efforts.  I will be rooting for a Liverpool win come the first …

Tottenham must start Son and Lucas against Liverpool

Tottenham are weeks away from the biggest match in the club's recent history. It could even be said that it is the biggest game since the club was formed. It is their chance to be crowed champions of Europe. To earn that title, they need to overcome a fellow Premier League side in Liverpool. They will start the match as outsiders, as they have only won once in the last 14 meetings between the two clubs. However, this is a …

Tottenham vs Ajax | Champions League Semi-Final Preview

Tottenham will play their first ever Champions League semi-final this week, as they welcome Ajax to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. There has been great anticipation ever since the quarter-final victory over Manchester City. This should be an entertaining tie, with both teams wanting to play a positive brand of football. The home side's achievements have been somewhat overshadowed by the exploits of their semi-final opponents. Both sides have done extremely well to reach this stage, but they are now so …

It is not very often in Champions League knockout stages that the likes of Real Madrid, PSG, and most likely Juventus, find themselves out of the tournament at the last sixteen hurdle. But that is exactly the case in this season’s Champions League and that makes it more enticing for the teams that are still alive in the competition. Liverpool are one of those teams and they will travel to Allianz Arena in Munich to take on Bayern Munich on …

After a brief interlude European football will be back at Anfield on Tuesday night. In their round of 16 tie, Liverpool host the Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich on Tuesday. If one looks at the Premier League and Bundesliga tables as of now, we may see them as two very similar teams – both are placed second in their respective domestic leagues and both are separated from the respective league leaders by a whisker. You would just need to look at …
