It’s that time of the month again, where every football fan sets their sights towards the pinnacle of European football looking to see who becomes the kings of Europe. The football deities have finally smiled on England, with Liverpool being crowned Champions of Europe after their amazing 2018/2019 season.
After a long Christmas hiatus, we welcome the best teams in Europe as they battle for supremacy.
This week we have two pairs of heavy-weights about to clash on the path to become champions.
Borussia Dortmund vs Paris Saint Germain
These two teams have always been amongst the top teams in Europe, although they are ranked towards the rear. Last time Dortmund went to the finals of the Uefa Champions League was in the 2012/2013 season where they lost to their bitter rivals Bayern Munich. Last time they won the same competition was in 1977, 43 years ago.
Paris Saint Germain, on the other hand, has had a great hold on their domestic competition, dominating consistently. Although they do not have that same kind of dominance in Europe, which has seen them thirst for the same success in this field also.
So today, by 9pm W.A.T. They clash to see who will come out victorious and pass the round of 16 for the competition.
Dortmund has won three and lost 2 matches in their last 5 games, while PSG has a better winning streak having won 4 games and drawn one in their last 5 games.
Both teams met in 2010, in the sister competition the UEFA Europa League with both teams unable to become victorious in both legs having to share the points (0-0, 1-1) and PSG moving forward with due to away goal advantage.
Both teams have scored above 2.5 goals in their last 5 games, so we are expecting goals and lots of it to be honest.
Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool
Atletico Madrid has always been considered the underdog in the Spanish league especially when it concerns their more boisterous neighbors, Real Madrid.
They have been to the finals in this competition twice and lost out both times to their neighbors.
Although they don’t have the history of the other two dominant teams in the league, they’re tough opponents to face and on their day a serious problem for any opposition.
In their last 5 games, they’ve won 1 game, lost 2 games and shared the point in 2 games. They’ve been having trouble scoring goals and their defense seems to be a quick counter away from being non-existent, but Atletico Madrid has that never-give-up spirit so it would be an exciting match to watch.
Liverpool has styled themselves as the awakened giants and well they seem to be making up for lost time, with their utter dominance in the domestic Premier League and they seek to retain the Champions League trophy and show they’re honestly the kings of Europe.
Both teams last met in the Uefa Europa League in 2010, with Atletico Madrid going ahead to the next stage based on goal advantage.
There’s more to be seen later this even by 9:00pm W.A.T, so while you wait why don’t you make some good money from these matches, Redsonbet is giving amazing odds with first-timers enjoying their 200% bonus, you shouldn’t miss out.
