Opinion – Juca Kfouri: Chelsea can say they landed on their feet against Real Madrid

There are defeats and defeats. Landing on one’s feet is an expression often used as a consolation.

The elimination of the world champion Chelsea in the European Champions League against Real Madrid makes it possible to use it to perfection.

Rarely has the defeat happened in such a dignified way, in the home of the millionaire title-collecting opponent.

An epic battle, finished 3-1 in normal time for the English team, the same score as the game in London, resolved in extra time with the providential goal by that monstrous Frenchman Karim Benzema to classify the madridistas.

Early ending?

Now we will have Real Madrid and Manchester City in one of the semifinals, the Spaniards in search of the 14th ear, the British after the unprecedented achievement and for which they have invested so much for a long time.

But no early end, because in the other semifinal there will be a beatlemaniac clash between the Liverpool Reds and Villarreal’s bold Yellow Submarine, author of the feat of eliminating Lewandowski’s Bayern in Munich, with a 1-1 draw in end of the game.

It is unlikely that he will repeat such a feat against Salah and company, hence the almost guarantee that there will be no early end, because wherever Jürgen Klopp’s team is, there will be no Pep Guardiola or Carlo Ancelotti to sleep peacefully.
