Vinicius Junior delivered a brilliant performance with a brace and an assist to power Real Madrid past Shakhtar Donetsk 0-5 in Group D of the 2021-22 Champions League on Tuesday night at the NSC Olimpiyskiy in Kyiv, Ukraine.
There has to be a touch of charisma in a legendary character. There has to be the Midas touch. There has to be magical supremacy in him. He has to elevate himself beyond others and prove again and again that he is the best in the world. There should be no doubt, Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player of this era – he has redefined this era like no one else. At Old Trafford, last night, he scripted yet another epic by netting the winner against a compact Villarreal unit. Of Course, Cristiano Ronaldo did it again!
Barcelona returned to Lisbon again, but this time around, the opposition was not Bayern Munich – Benfica faced Barca and they had not beaten the Catalans since 1961. Well, last night they broke the jinx by thrashing the visitors by 3-0. Sadly, Barca experienced yet another nightmare at Lisbon.
After gunning down Barcelona at Camp Nou it was time for having fun at Munich for Bayern Munich. They started punching Dynamo Kyiv and when the match ended, Kyiv were left bruised and shattered. Bayern Munich had scored fives as there is no stopping to the brute force.
At the Santiago Bernabeu, it was time for Real Madrid to have fun rather than hanging around for a tight finish against a lower-ranked team, who were supposed to be treated like a punching bag. While Liverpool opened the floodgates at Porto, the Madridistas expected the same at Bernabeu – well, they were left shell shocked and as a matter of fact, Sheriff sent shockwaves not only in Madrid but throughout the football world.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City tamed Thoms Tuchel’s brilliant Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the game of tactical mastery and then it was time for Pep to beat Pochettino at Paris. Let us remind you again, Pochettino is the manager of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at present and not Tottenham Hotspur, who have all the elements to be the best, still, a big flop. So, it would not be a tough task for Pep to kick them hard in Paris – well, football was crazy last night in Europe – City lost against PSG, which was surprising.
The night of the Champions League was back at San Siro after a long time and despite one man down, the Rossoneri gave the La Liga Champions – Atletico Madrid a tough time before losing by 2-1. Milan fought hard and kept close to defend their lead – but perhaps they were let down by the star power of Atleti who bounced back courtesy of Antoine Griezmann and Luis Suarez.
There was a thrilling encounter going on at Anfield. At Milan, Real Madrid were experiencing the intensity of Inter. Paris Saint-Germain were experiencing that spending big money does not matter if you don’t realize what football is all about. Erling Haaland was doing his usual job. And, at Etihad, Manchester City joined the festival of goals to add extra spice to the night of Champions League – Don’t you dare to sleep at all!
The good thing was that AC Milan were back in the place where they actually belong – they have been the masters of Champions League and their return was greeted with a banner that read “25/05/05 – There are places I remember” at Anfield which was lively and vibrant. Yet again, Liverpool and AC Milan and orchestrated another Champions League classic – a game to remember.
It was one of those nights of Champions League where your temperament would be tested to the highest level. The opposition would choke our life out but still, you have to find a way to get past and break the deadlock. At Milan, Real Madrid experienced the going tough – well, they do have the youngsters to show them the way and obviously, without Brazilian magic, there cannot be any party.
No sweat. No extra-pressure. No tension at all. Bayern Munich came to hunt their prey at Camp Nou and left Spain after finishing the dinner. It was the most anticipated match last night and it turned out to be an exhibition match where a bunch of schoolboys were mesmerized by the sheer brute force known as Bayern Munich.
