Here are 3 things that can be concluded after the first round match in 1/8 Champions League.
1. MU future is faded
Was rated higher than the opponent with a strong force, destructive style, but MU suddenly fell 0-2 right at home in the Champions League first leg. The team performed a blurred face and allowed PSG to control 3 light lines on February 13. Obviously, this result arose from criticism from the world media.
Optimistic, this is not the end of Manchester United. The home team is still coming back to save the situation. However, the question that was asked “What does the Red Devil” take to fight against the representative of France? Not mentioning much, having to march to the courtyard of the “Prince’s Park” has become a big challenge for Solskjaer teachers and students.
Remarkably, MU after a humiliating defeat, lost more Pogba because of the red card, Martial and Lingard injured the situation. Meanwhile, the defending Ligue 1 champions, they may return Cavani back in the rematch. The army of Solskjaer can show strong power in the domestic tournament, only regret at the arena of the class named Champions League, the team suddenly fledgling and lacking the bravery of a giant. In the history of C1, there are still spectacular back-to-back displays, but it is clear that the current situation is too difficult for MU.
2. Real be careful with Ajax
With the current position of Real, despite not being able to keep the power of destruction, they are still much more appreciated than Ajax. The sublimation circuit in La Liga with the Copa del Rey also makes the white shirt army confidently decide on Johan Cruijff Arena.
Finally, “Los Blancos” is just as expected to win and holds the advantage of 2 away goals. However, this result does not mean that Solari teachers and students have an easy match. Ajax really makes the reigning European champions difficult. The way to attack the total force, to force the opponent from the Dutch representative many times overwhelmed the white vulture.
Statistics show that the Erik ten Hag troop is in no way inferior to the Spanish giant. Only regret in the second half, the stars fell down and let the opponent have the opportunity to finish the home team. Ajax lacks perhaps the bravery, the old fox and a little luck. In the second leg, if the performance of the face is as early as February 14, the Dutch representative has absolutely a reason to dream about the back-to-back curtain.
3. Tottenham: New Premier League hopes
It was not until the last minute that Tottenham could get a ticket to advance to the next round. Fun has not been long, Spurs have to pick up Dortmund in the 1/8 of the Champions League. After what was shown in the group stage, there was little hope for the north London representative in the European arena.
However, the morning of February 14 is a completely different Tottenham, the competition is full and brave. Dortmund is not an easy name, but Pochettinho’s teachers destroyed the opponent with the score 3-0. It can be said that Spurs has stepped one leg into the quarterfinals of C1. Not only that, the home team is also the first name in the Premier League to go on. From the ignored name, “Rooster” is now England’s new hope in Europe.
