The first champions league stage ended with a clear advantage for Germans. Barcelona lost 4-0 in Munich, and Real Madrid 4-1 in Dortmund. As far as Barcelona is concerned, I want to point out that three of those four goals must be disallowed and a penalty was not indicated for “los culés”. Anyway, there are no excuses. As Piqué said: “they have just given us a telling-of”. The Bavarians really beat Barcelona in all senses, above all, in the physical condition. It became clear Bayern is right now the best team in Europe.
With regard to Real Madrid we could state that the “usual player” avoided for Real Madrid the same score than the one that took place in Munich. Borussia crushed Real Madrid in all senses including also the physical condition. Lewandowsky became the first player ever who was able to score four goals in a champions league semi-finals match, raising this way very highly his quotation. Mourinho made several mistakes such as setting Ramos as a right side defender, leaving Casillas out and picking Modric as a first-team player. Obviously he did not acknowledge such mistakes in the press conference.
We will live the ending of both movies next week. Regarding Barcelona it is clear that they will be knock out. This year, for any reason, UEFA does not want “the Catalonians” in the final. Catalonian team has been damaged through various refereeing taken place in Milan, Paris and Munich. Too much coincidence.
However, on the other side, Real Madrid has not been damaged even once in this championship. Again, too much coincidence. Last Wednesday, referee did not indicate a clear penalty for Borussia, and by the way, I was right concerning my draw prediction. That possible vibrator ball has given Real Madrid many attainable rivals for its whole history. The coming Tuesday, we will be able to check my theory out by watching how referee will favour Real Madrid’s players in some decisions, so that they can carry out the comeback and reach the final. What a shame.
