City Crashes

Manchester City versed CSKA in a game named ‘Tragedy’. Man City are at the bottom of their group and here’s the reason why…

It was clear that CSKA had come to the Etihad with a mission because Doumbia gave them the lead in the second minute of the match! This somehow did not overthrow Manchester City as Yaya Touré scored the equaliser six minutes later. Quick save. Impressive. Well, that was until Doumbia decided to score once more in the 34th minute.

Their suffering didn’t just end at the loss of points. Fernandinho and Yaya Toure later received red cards and will be unable to play against Bayern Munich. What a night of disappointment!

City’s chances of qualifying for the next stage are slim. Very slim. It’s doable, of course. But do they have the mentality to be successful in doing so?

Belittled Blues

Chelsea played against NK Maribor with the chance to secure a place in the last 16. By the end of the game the only thought left was what could have been…

It was a shock when Ibraimi put in a goal for Maribor in the 50th minute. Chelsea…Mourinho’s Chelsea…fell behind! Not the start they were looking for. Luckily, Matic managed to equalise for the Blues in the 73rd minute. Hazard earned a late penalty, however he failed to make it a win. He has at last broken his penalty success record. It just wasn’t his day. Aww.

The Blues went home with a little bit of the blues. However not all hope is lost. They simply need to win the next game. Let’s hope it won’t be too difficult the next time round.
