The Champions League 2019-20 has gone back to revolutionise Europe, and has underlined that the favouritism it is necessary to show it on the lawn. So much in the phase of groups as in some eliminatory that finish to start, the surprises have gone accumulating, and anybody thinks in surrendering on the way to the 'orejona'. In spite of the good paper of some groups does hardly some months, already there is varied that will not be able to equalise his attainments.

When hardly they are contesting the eighth of the present edition, already there are three semifinalists of the past that have been deleted. The coronavirus has put in pause the tournament and now the incógnitas main are when and how will restart , but in the last sprint before the stop confirmed the odd news. Liverpool, Tottenham and Ajax no longer will be able to reach the penultimate round to which arrived a year backwards.

One of the thumps more chocantes is the one who gave the 'reds', for the moment valid champions and does not do so much the strongest applicant between all those that took out his note to the crosses. An Athletic of Madrid aguerrido, lucky and without at all that lose struck them in Wanda Metropolitan, and when all aimed to that the ones of Jürgen Klopp would reach the traced back in Anfield, the ones of Diego Simeone resurrected in the extention and will be in chambers. The consolation for the ones of Merseyside is not lower, since they will break a maleficio historical in the Premier League.

Neither it is easy to fit the fall of the 'spurs', that lost the final of Madrid and sank irremediablemente. The pupilos of Mauritius Pochettino resisted to an irregular phase of groups, but already with José Mourinho in the bench, his duel against the RB Leipzig has not had colour. The Germans have remained with the poster of disclosure and did not leave doubts neither home neither was, tieing up the pass with a rotundo global of 4-0. The problem for the londinenses is that the league does not go much better, and the classification for the next Champions each day is more far.

The first in falling, this yes, went the 'ajacied', unexpected victims in one of the groups of the death. The men of Erik have Hag had it everything of face in the last day but Valencia defeated them and planted in eighth seconded by Chelsea. Neither it was better the adventure in the Europe League, because the Getafe exasperated them and threw them in treintaidosavos of final. The bad recent moment has happened them bill, and will have to resurgir of his ashes if they wish enderezar his project and conquer an Eredivisie that would give them back to the next edition.

The Barça is the last surviving semifinalist

Of the semifinalists 2018-19, the only surviving in this Champions is the FC Barcelona, braked by the threat of the coronavirus. The Catalans did not fail in the phase of groups and again tieed up the first place, although his own doubts suppose an obstacle on the way to the trophy. With more push that football, took out a 1-1 promising of Saint Paolo, but is for seeing if they will be able to finish the work against a Napoli challenging that for the moment does not have how arrive to the Camp Nou. UEFA has to decide if, like the rest of parties, this also remains postponed.
