The top teams in Spain have served up another classic Del Clasico, copa Del Rey Final in Valencia. It is Real Madrid who came out on top. They were up first after 10 minutes by Angel Maria, Lionel Messi was disappointing this time but Barca managed to equalise through Mark Bartra in the second half.
The best coaches left in the draw, three of them were very successful. Jose Mourinho chasing down the touch line like he did it 10 years ago with Porto when they knocked Manchester United out and that it is Mourinho charisma, like it was pure plan.
Manu hold the European Champions Bayern to 1 -1. It gives ManU a hope ahead of the second leg in Germany next week. Well before the crunch, supporters were taking their pictures, perhaps to preserve in memory of the last champion league match at Old Trafford for perhaps ManU beaten Bayern a side that rarely lose the ball let alone their matches.
The form and the confidence of the manager, the odd of the Manchester United to be able to turn the 2 –nil deficit against Olympiakos will simply stack against them but they managed to do what the majority thought was improbable. Not only MANU never turned the two goals in the knock out stages of the champions league until now but on the history of the two-leg format , getting back to 1994 -95 season, there is only 5 teams which were able to turn the 2 or more goals lead deficit. It was 1 nil, from Van Persie on penalty then the Dutch doubled the score by combining so brilliantly with Rooney to level the aggregate.
Bayern Munich emerged as the dominant of the European football last year and the made it clear that they want to win everything again this season. Just days after winning 16th consecutive games in the bundesliga , Bayern had knocked Arsenal out off the champions league.
Just four months to go before the world cup in Brazil, there are some unrests and demonstrations that become violent concerning the millions of money spent on the organization of the world cup as well as the Olympic Games in 2016.
