This 3 in 1 day consisting Valentine’s Day, UEFA Champions League and the Catholic celebration of Ash Wednesday.
Several memes have graced the internet in recent times on what people will be focusing on. As football fans are unsure of what’ll come first: Our loved ones, or our love for the game?
It is no secret that for any football fan the return of the highly anticipated UEFA Champions League is something to behold.
The knockout round of 16 begins on 13th February with runaway English Champions Manchester City taking on Swiss opposition in FC Basel.
Pep Guardiola’s side, who have had their side bolstered by the return of David Silva and Leroy Sane from injury, will be looking to continue with their sterling form shown from early this season.
Juventus will be taking on Tottenham in Italy as the Old Lady of Turin looks to continue with her defensive record of 1 goal conceded in 16 games whereas Tottenham, whose Harry Kane who recently received a milestone of 100 goals in English football, hope to move with momentum gained from their victory in the weekend’s North London Derby over Arsenal (who have struggled this and last season, and are not participating in this round of the UEFA.)
The clash that will have the whole world buzzing, and probably the cause of the conflict with innocent Valentine’s Day, will be the match between 12-time Champions League winners, Real Madrid, vs PSG clash on Wednesday.
Los Blancos will be looking up to their champion Cristiano Ronaldo; who has recently rediscovered his form, looking to prove that he is the best by further bettering his UEFA goal-scoring record.
Paris Saint-Germain, who have the world’s most expensive attack with Mbappe, Cavani, and Neymar, will have their squad snapping at Real Madrid looking for more goals. The team were the side with the most goals in the group stages of the competition and will be looking to finish the job in one leg.
So now that you have your options, who’s it going to be?
Happy Valentine’s Day to all.
