It is close to that time of the year where the best teams all over Europe battle for the most prestigious title of the continent. Before we get into the excitement of the knockout stages, we have to endure the group stages. Let’s take a general look at some interesting groups.
The Champions League finale in 2005 is probably the proudest moment of any living Liverpool fan today. It was against AC Milan on a beautiful night in Istanbul. The Merseyside club were three goals down by halftime and no-one gave them a chance.
After firing previous manager Brendan Rodgers in late 2015, the Merseyside fans have been ecstatic about ex-Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp’s arrival. Although German Manager still conquers the fans’ heart with his charisma and witty comments at the press conferences, he has been performing poorly on the pitch. The inconsistency has not improved from the Rodgers era but there has been an occasional great display of the beautiful game, which keeps fans hopeful for next season. That was certainly the case in the game against Stoke City on April 10.
