We have touched on the point several times, but it is a reality that the strong investment grade of the Big Six and Paris Saint-Germain has generated a new force and new powers in this sport.
I will not be so dramatic, nor do I want to be a tipster, but the Champions League final is destined to be between English teams again, for the third time in four years, or else the only ones who raise their hands again are the PSG and Bayern Munich, who played it just two editions ago.
On Tuesday, I had to broadcast the game between the Real Madrid and PSG, and yesterday that of Inter Milan against Liverpool, and you can see the difference between the leaders of the Spanish and Italian leagues. Very far from being close to winning their respective games.
It’s true that Simone Inzaghi’s team generated more and failed too much, but — when you see the benches — you understand the difference.
The team of Jürgen Klopp put Bobby Firmino in for Diogo Jota; the first fell there, while on the Inter Milan bench you could hardly see a veteran Alexis Sánchez trying to make amends; later, the space was opened for the second to take place that practically puts the Reds in the quarterfinals.
In the Parc des Princes, it was also a matter of seeing the bench to know that Neymar would enter at any moment and, in a brilliant play by Kylian Mbappe, the game was defined, which —by the way— was widely handled by the French team. In fact, Karim Benzema barely touched the ball.
It is true that the laps can deliver surprises and other game management, but it is clear that —today— the Premier is moving away, taking off. And watch out, I’m talking about the leaders of the Leagues, because the second places play today the Europa League.
Shit where am I going? Yes, because the five most expensive clubs on the planet are the favorites to win the Champions League: Manchester City, PSG, Liverpool, Chelsea and Bayern Munich, just like in the last finals.
Thats why he Real Madrid and Barcelona, and the Italian clubs, have been far from this. When Cristiano’s Madrid won their Champions League they were Top 3 on that list. When Barcelona got on a roll winning their Champions League, they also belonged to that list. When Juve reached their last finals, they were just competing in those areas.
To win the Champions, It is no longer a matter of history or ancestry, it is a matter of capital, a lot of capital. Or am I wrong?
Welcome, welcome! To the new soccer bosses.
