Living The Moment

Reds added Real as another European scalp

Posted on: March 11, 2009

All Liverpool fans must have thought it was worth it to wake up at 4 a:m (Brunei time) just to watch the second leg of the Champions League game between Liverpool and Real Madrid. The hype and news leading to the big game was so immense that for neutrals must have thought that either Real is going to make a stunning come back or Liverpool to stamp their authority in this competition.

When UEFA released the list of top clubs in Europe, Liverpool came out on top. It sounded like Benitez had to prove a point to the other clubs as to why they are number one in Europe and what better way to show it to the rest of the world by kicking Real out of the competition with an astounding 4-0 scoreline. Benitez demanded respect and for sure Liverpool will get it. Forget Bayern’s thumping of Sporting Lisbon (aggregate 12-1). Sporting has never been the power house of Champions League in the modern era. Obviously Bayern is going to come out as winners between the two. But Liverpool and Real? Now thats a serious talking point.

Both are giants. Both won the games in record breaking times. Los Blancos or the Galacticos as they were better known in their hey day could prove to be tricky on their day. They have players that could churn out victories out from their own pockets. Attacks and Defences are all star studded. Liverpool are made up of workers, headed by their talismanic skipper Gerrard and Torres playing up front. Ramos came out to the press and said they are going to play Liverpool off the field and attack. Deep inside one could hear the distant echo that it could prove to the one of the deciding factors for him as to whther his contract is going to extended or not. And the Real board must be thinking twice after that embarrasing defeat, not to meantion both legs, by Liverpool.

I dont need to say anything much about Liverpool. For those of you who watched the game early this morning or the re-run would sum up the game last night as emphatic, solid, strong, clinical and a genius footballing masterstroke. And rightly so as to why Liverpool is on top of the UEFA list of best football clubs. now lets head down to the M56 and grind out another great result against Man U. You’ll Never Walk Alone!!
