Real Madrid Champions League Champion 2021-2022

The Champions League Final became a match that attracted attention among football lovers, because Liverpool's defeat was due to the negligence of the players who were included in the category of great players on the team.

Previously Liverpool failed to win the English league, whose match ended last week, in the final of this season's UCL match had a revenge mission from the Liverpool team.

Liverpool conceded in the first half by Karim Benzema's goal, but the goal was deemed invalid because Benzema was caught offside, and the first half was closed with the score 0-0.

And in the second half Liverpool's side continued to press with an attack dominated by them, and Real Madrid started to come out under pressure.

And in the 59th minute, the Reds' negligence was put to good use by Real Madrid and successfully produced a goal by Vinicius Junior with a pass from Federico Valverde.

Surprised by Real Madrid's goal, the Reds stepped up the pressure, but to no avail. Thibaut Courtois was great and slick with 9 saves. And the match ended with Real Madrid's 1-0 victory and made Real Madrid the UCL winner for the 14th time.

This game garnered a lot of attention and judgment, here are the mistakes that led to Liverpool's defeat:

Waste of Tempo and Domination
Failed to Take Advantage of Domination
After an offside goal by Karim Benzema, the Reds launched a revenge mission. Good dominance resulted in many chances, even the first 20 minutes forced the Madrid goalkeeper to make 4 saves.
In total, the Reds shot against the opponent's goal 24 times but none of them resulted in a goal.

Tempo Change
In the first half Liverpool played with a high tempo and high pressure, making it difficult for Real Madrid to build attacks. This scenario went well throughout the first half causing Madrid to be confined to the field throughout the first half.
But in the second half Liverpool even relaxed the pressure and caused Real Madrid to develop the game. And producing goals for Real Madrid and Liverpool instead trapped the opposing team's game.

Weak in the wing formation
Failed to Anticipate Trent Alexander's Duel - Arnold Vs Vinicius
Trent Alexander-Arnold has indeed become one of Liverpool's mainstay weapons this season through his 2 goals and 9 assists. And weakness while defending is in the spotlight. Where Vinicius' speed is a problem for Alexander Arnold.
And the unfortunate thing approached Liverpool, when Real Madrid had the ball in the middle of the field, it was Trenat Alexander-Arnold who was actually interested in Karim Benzema's movement, so Vinicius was not guarded by the Reds on the right side of defense and scored a goal.

Weakened Full Back Duo
Two fullbacks should be the key to attack but in the final the Reds performed poorly and in the end the attack did not go well.

Fulham Lead over Swansea City at the top of Championship

The Swans started the game strong until at the end of the first half Ryan Manning was sent off for a foul on Harry Wilson.

Aleksandar Mitrovic put Fulham ahead 14 seconds into the second half, before an own goal from Ben Brancho made it two. then Bobby Decordova-Reid added a third after Joel Piroe had headed in for Swansea, before Fulham's fourth goal was scored by Neco Williams before unleashing a stunning fifth.

The Championship leaders have now scored 89 goals in 35 games this season, with Mitrovic's 35 goals in just 33 appearances. And more importantly in terms of Fulham's promotion aspirations, Bournemouth's draw with bottom side Peterborough United means the Cottagers are now increasingly clear at the top of the table.

The Swans kept possession well and maneuvered through Fulham's pressure but it was the visitors who created the first chance when Williams' right cross was headed in by Mitrovic. Swansea continued to build on patiently from the back, with one very heavy pass culminating in a powerful 20-yard shot from Michael Obafemi that Marek Rodak parried over the bar.

From then on, Fulham really became dominant.

FC Red Bull Salzburg failed to reach the Champions League quarter-finals against Bayern Munich

In the 23rd minute Robert Lewandowski beautifully scored a hat trick in the opening moment.

After being brought down by Salzburg defender Maximilan Wober, the Poland captain scored two penalties in 21 minutes, the shot into the bottom left corner was Lewandowski's 40th goal and was the first penalty kick of the game against Salzburg. And with close range adding a third goal, this hat trick was the first to be completed in the 23rd minute in the Champions League.

Salzburg should have had 2 chances, early chances with Nicolas Capaldo and Nicolas Seiwald but all failed due to a splendid chance conversion error.
And in the end they were overwhelmed against a deadly attack from Munich by Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry on the fourth shot followed by Thomas Muller on the fifth.

It was a gloomy night and almost like a bad memory for Salzburg who are the visitors. Finally on the night there was at least a goal from Salzburg which Mauritz Kjaergaard shot with a powerful shot into the top left corner and managed to revive Julian Nagelsmann's side back to life.

Lewandowski has inspired Bayern a lot, and Salzburg also seem to have real hope of becoming the first Austrian team to reach the last eight of the competition since 1985.

The 33-year-old twice beat Wober to set the tone for the second and third legs - as he hit 85 Champions League goals in three fewer games than Lionel Messi and 17 before Cristiano Ronaldo - is all about his determination to keep going.

After Ronaldo (seven) and Messi (five), Lewandowski is now only the third player to score 10 or more goals in three or more different Champions League campaigns.

And not content to settle for complacency after being the top scorer in the competition this season, Lewandowski was also involved in Muller's second before setting Sane in for Bayern's seventh of the night.
