The month of May marks the end of an important sporting season for professional football. And it is time for verdicts and challenges not to be missed, both nationally and internationally.

Conference League final for Roma by Mourinho

José Mourinho’s Roma got the pass for the final of the first edition of the Conference League, against the Dutch team Feyenoord, a team from Rotterdam who are back in a final after more than twenty years since the last time. It was in fact 2002 when Feyenoord beat Borussia Dortmund in the final of the UEFA Cup (now Europa League). A team of international calibre and dimension, unlike Roma, which in any case played two European Cup and UEFA finals between the 1980s and 1990s, Feyenoord also has a Champions League and Intercontinental Cup won over the years in its palmares. seventy. Before competing in this new competition, he has trodden the international stage over forty times, with 17 appearances in the Champions League / Champions Cup and 23 in the Uefa Cup / Europa League. As far as we are concerned, the Conference League is not the only competition that will be played internationally during the month of May.

The Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool

The last time an Italian team played in a Champions League final was on 3 June 2017. On stage was Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus against Zidane’s Real Madrid. The match ended with a large 4-1 in favour of the Blancos, obtained in comeback, given that after Ronaldo’s first goal for Real had equalized Mandzukic for the bianconeri. To go back to talking about a won final, we need to rewind the tape further up to the year of José Mourinho’s famous Inter treble. It was 2010 and that remains the last victory of an Italian club team in a European context at the moment. Today we see how Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have proven to be the two contender teams for a competition that is becoming increasingly difficult, in terms of technical and competitive rates and the formations that are happening. Once again Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City reached the semi-finals and had to surrender in front of a team and a club with a more European and winning vocation.

Ancelotti vs Klopp: two winning ways of understanding modern football

For Klopp’s Liverpool, on the other hand, this final represents a revenge, compared to the match four years ago. A game that this time sees if possible the Reds themselves as favourites over Real Madrid which if it is true that it boasts 13 victories out of 16 finals played, it is also a team that has not managed to play for the cup with big ears for four seasons now. Liverpool, on the other hand, with the final won in 2018-2019 is certainly the most difficult opponent for Ancelotti’s men on paper. However, the Blancos are led by a respectable attacking department where Vinicius Jr. and above all Karim Benzema have shown all their offensive potential in this competition. Liverpool, on the other hand, is a more cohesive team that plays unanimous and total football and which has returned to being competitive first in Europe and then in the Premier League. It is therefore the best possible final which marks the final moment for the football season.
