A football week of rants, chants and bants.
Hey readers, how are you all doing?
This week is a very great one in the aspect of football. All over the world, some fans were bursting with their levels of excitement this past week.
It's a great football week all over Europe. In the Premier League, the UEFA Champions League, The FA Cup and UEFA Europa champions league.
On Tuesday we got the sides of football with chants and bants in the Champions league match between Real Madrid and Chelsea FC. In the first leg of the champions league quarter finals, Realmadrid won us (Chelsea) with 3 goals to 1. The three goals were scored by Kareem Benzema. I said us there because I'm a Chelsea fan as well.
And then in the second leg, the Chelsea players came with full force and were leading 3 goals to nil till the 80th minute. Before them the Chelsea fans were chanting!! Up blues!!! The sky is blue!!!. But in the 80th minute, Chelsea fans began to rant after they conceded the first goal which was scored by Rodrigo with a great assist from Lucas modric.
The match went into an extra time due to the tie in the score (aggregate score). Then everything turned around. Karen Benzema scored the 2nd goal for Real Madrid. The there were Rants, chants and Bants going on at the same time.
Chelsea fans were ranting, complaining about how careless the players were to allow Realmadrid to be ahead.
Real Madrid fans were chanting Halla Madrid!! Rejoicing over their victory.
While the anti-chelsea fans (Man u fans, with the likes of @Jumper-01
, Arsenal fans, and Barca fans Like @HappyBoy
) were Banting Chelsea. They were happy for our loss. But what could we do? It is football, anything can happen.
This same Tuesday, Bayern Munich were unexpectedly disqualified by Villarreal. After Robert lewandoski's goal which made it 1-1 on aggregate. Every one thought it was going to be Remontada (come-back) for Bayern Munich. But Nigeria's Chukwueze scored the winning goal for villareal in the 88th minute.
The chanting Bayern fans began to rant. So funny how life changes, there is always only seconds between happiness and sorrow.
On Wednesday, though the winners were obvious already. Manchester city dominated Athletico Madrid in the first leg, then they came for a 0-0 draw in the 2nd leg.
Liverpool after winning Benfica 3-1 in the first leg, played a 3-3 draw in the second leg. Making 6-4 on aggregate.
The unbeaten run of xavi and Barcelona as a team was destroyed by a German club Frankfurt. An underdog team which no one expected will cause the downfall of Barcelona.
Their Loss gave the Chelsea fans and Manchester United fans an avenue to return their bants. Frankfurt dominated camp Nou and won Barcelona 3 goals to 2,asking 4-3 on aggregate.
It was all about chants all through for the The Frankfurt football club right from the beginning of the match.
It was otherwise for the Barca fans as they began to rant.
Fast-forward to today's FA cup match between Liverpool and Manchester city. Manchester city wore Manchester United's shoe today and played like a 2nd division team. Liverpool led them in the first half with 3 goals to nil. Then in the second half Manchester city and were trying something that looks like comeback. But it was to no prevail as the final score was 3-2.
Last week, the two teams met in the premier league and drew 2-2 and Manchester city dominated. No one expected this loss from Manchester city. Though Liverpool are also a great team, but the goals conceded by Manchester city were not expected.
Glory Glory Man united. Glory to God, their glory had finally shone after a long run of losses and draws. I'm happy for the team though especially Cristiano Ronaldo who scored a treble with a fantastic free kick.
There is nothing left to bant on the team, they have suffered enough. Let them enjoy this victory. I sincerely celebrate with them today.
That's a wrap for this week in football world.
Remember, football is a game of love, so let us all know it is just a game of fun and cruise and let us not take anything personal.
