Real Madrid’s Exit: It’s Implications To The World.
Once again, the champions league curse has struck: Another defending champion fails to defend it’s title.
Ever since the champions league inauguration, no club has been able to break the curse and this time around it has further implications to the football world:
Juventus Reaches its first Champion’s league final in over a decade, in fact it is the first time in a long time it made an impact worth noting in the competition. This will finally shoot back up the Italian league in the eyes of the world and could be the much sought after rebirth the Italians have been craving for.
Barcelona is the other finalist and by getting this far, dealing a painful defeat to Guardiola’s Bayern Munich has revenged the past two years of Barren European Glory.
Lionel Messi has just won a distant battle with eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo in the run up to the next Ballon D’or 2015.
When the coaches and captains of the world national teams do vote for the next Ballon D’or (World player of the year) they will be reminded of Messi reaching the final and Ronaldo not.
This could get worse for Ronaldo, should Barcelona win the Champion league final and furthermore the Spanish La Liga trophy.
Those who might think otherwise should note that though Messi guided Argentina to the World cup final in Brazil,last year and Ronaldo’s Portugal were eliminated from the first round stages, it was Ronaldo who won the World player of the year thanks to his Champions league final victory with Real Madrid.
Carlo Ancellotti’s and his players are highly contested in madrid at the moment and with a Barren Title less year looming, this champions league semi-finals elimination could shorten the Italian’s reign at impatient Real Madrid.
Team football outweighs individual talented teams. Barcelona though led by 3 exceptional strikers in Lionel Messi, Neymar and Suarez are tactically rounded based on team play and schemes, this is totally true of Juventus who collectively eliminated a Real Madrid that built their match plan around individual exploits from Ronaldo and Gareth Bale that never materialised.
