If you’re a fan of football, this article will help you decide which game was the best. The list is not exhaustive, so feel free to share your favorites in the comments below.
Chelsea vs Barcelona
If there was a game to go down in the history of the Champions League, Chelsea vs Barcelona is one of the greatest. The match featured two of the best players of all time and is considered one of the best ever played. However, the game wasn’t perfect. Barcelona were two goals down before half time and had one man less after Terry’s red card. The match was full of tense moments, with Chelsea under severe pressure but showing the same resilience and spirit which won them their first Champions League in Munich a few months earlier.
Italy vs Brazil in 1982 World Cup semi-finals
Italy’s 3-2 victory over Brazil in the semi-final of the 1982 World Cup was a memorable moment. The Italian team had a number of stars, including Paolo Rossi, who had never scored an international goal before. Italy had a difficult start to the tournament, but was recalled for the tournament and scored two goals in the second half to take a 3-2 lead. They would go on to win the match, and were crowned World Cup champions.
Manchester United vs Bayern Munich
Manchester United vs Bayern Munich is one of the most exciting matches of all time. The game ended 2-2 after a nervy first half. The Bavarians had numerous chances to take the lead, but failed to score. Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben both missed attempts on goal. Bayern nearly broke the deadlock when Antonio Valencia scored after a cross from the right wing, but the offside flag quickly came out to disallow the goal.
German derby in Milan
The German derby in Milan is one of the most legendary matches in the history of the game. This match took place in 1987 and was played in the Italian capital. Milan had just come out of relegation and was battling to stay in the top flight. The derby was important to the club as it would help them prove that they were back.
Turning minutes in Casablanca match
A Wydad Casablanca goal has put the visitors in the lead at the start of the 20th minute in the CAF Champions League final. The Egyptian side will have to rethink their game plan after conceding this goal, which was a rocket from 25 yards. Wydad fans are looking shell-shocked. Some of them have travelled from Egypt, while other fans are from Al Ahly. This match is a key one for the two teams, as it will determine who will play in the 2022 CAF CL final.
