BT Sport’s The Script predicted if Jurgen Klopp would lead Liverpool to their second consecutive Champions League trophy,Liverpool will fall short of successfully defending their Champions League crown, according to a supercomputer simulation.
But Jurgen Klopp’s men, who have been in the final of the Champions League for the last two seasons, failed to retain the title in the supercomputer’s predictions. Ahead of the Champions League group stage draw on Thursday, BT Sport’s The Script has been used to simulate the winner of Europe’s top-tier club competition. Premier League trio Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City all reached the knockout stage of the competition. But Spurs, who were last season’s runners-up, failed to make the round of 16. And Chelsea come up against Los Blancos in the quarter-finals and are subsequently knocked out of the competition. Liverpool’s hopes of retaining the Champions League end in the quarter-finals against Barcelona. But Barca have the last laugh this time around as they beat Liverpool to set up El Clasico for the Champions League semi-finals.
Madrid beat Barcelona in the semi-finals and progress to the final to meet Bayern Munich, who knocked out Juventus. Zinedine Zidane’s men walk away triumphant with another Champions League crown after defeating the German champions 3-2 in the final. Atletico Madrid, who reinforced heavily this summer, were knocked at the hands of Bayern Munich in the round of 16.And Paris Saint-Germain reached the quarter-finals, only to narrowly lose 3-2 on an aggregate scoreline to the Bavarians.

UEFA WCL: Ajara bites Twice In Valeranga’s Feast Over KI
Sports Writer Mysoccer24.com-Cameroon
CAF women’s player of the year runner-up Njoya Nchout Ajara was in on the act twice, as her Valerenga side put 7 past KI in the first qualifying round of the women’s Champions league.
The outcome of Wednesday’s game did not flatter the home side, neither was it harsh on the visitors.
Ki started to capitulate after just 23 minutes, when Synne Jensen converted from the spot to gift the home side a well deserved one – nil lead.
The floodgates then opened as Nchout doubled tally for Valerenga after just two minutes. Thomsen scored the last of Valerenga’s first half goals, before the halftime interval.
A rather bedraggled KI side couldn’t change their fortunes in the second half.
Nchout Ajara took her season’s tally to a dozen (12), completing her double at the 70th minute after the pose.
25-year-old Andrine Tomter scored at the 79 minute, before Catherine Joan Bott made the score even more humiliating for the visitors.
KI in search of a consolation to make the score honourable, left spaces in – behind which was capitalised upon by Rikke Bogetveit Nygard for 7 – 0 Valerenga.
Up next in the champions League for Ajara and co next week, are Stabaek. Valerenga visits Lyn in their next Toppserien fixture on Saturday.
We Will Work To Win Next Season – PSG President
By Etienne Mainimo
The President of the Paris Saint Germain, PSG, Nasser Al-Khelaifi says his club will work extremely hard to win to win the UEFA Champions League.
After PSG lost 0-1 to Bayern Munich in the finals of USFA on Sunday August 23, Nasser Al-Khelaifi insisted that he is proud of his team and that his team will be back soon
“We will work to win next season. Tonight, we believe in it more than before. I promise we’re going to win the Champions League. We had a great season. We reached the finals, we won four trophies. We are sad, we are disappointed but there is a positive side,” Nasser Al-Khelaifi told RMC Sport.
According to the President, “it was very close. I am proud of my players. We had a great season, a great tournament here. We had everything we needed to win but that is football.”
“Players, honestly, everybody’s coming out with their heads held high. They have created something. We played against the great Bayern that is something. They are one of the best teams in the world we lost 0-1. You have to improve on little things. This our first and eleven for Bayern,” Nasser Al-Khelaifi said.
The President however stated that, “we will get back one day. We will work for it. It was not easy to reach the final but we are going to do everything we can to win this trophy.”
Why Germany ?!! Read The Secret Answer
Science is the overall prespictive
After the historical match between Germany and Brazil in the 2014 World Cup that saw a sweeping 1-7 victory of the Mannschaft over the Brazilians, the German footballers didn’t spend the rest of their time on the streets or over Facebook jubilations.
Analysts began to study and analyse the match statistics … They found it was almost the same as yesterday’s game stats here
This game between Bayern and Barcelona was a turning point as it’s system of analysis didn’t tie with the match statistics. A new era of football match analyses has come to light.
Two German footballers who worked as performance analysts (Reinartz and Keppler) devised an analysis method named (Packing) that depends on the effect of passing the ball … not the number of passes.
In Simplified terms: bypassing the opponents in the direction of the goal
Both have established a performance analysis firm to serve the Bundesliga, then contracted a deal with the German Football Federation itself for all German National teams in 2016.
That is why German football is a show of pragmatism and performance, of course, other factors helped them such as culture, mentality and the quality of players raised up in the Dutch environment.
Shall we note that, in 2017 only one year after applying this method with the Dutch junior National teams, Germany won three trophies in the same year:
- The European Junior Championships
- The European Youth Championship
- The FIFA Confederations Cup with U21 Squad
A second question thus comes to mind
Why do they produce outstanding results especially when playing against “sexy football teams” like Brasil or Barçelona ?
It’s simply because the teams which tend to dominate and open the game are the easiest to defeat as compared to teams which rely on a block squad (packing). Teams which have an open game system provide space and time for the German “Packing” system to move and make the most efficient decisions in effective ball passing.
The games (Brazil vs Germany or Barcelona vs Bayern) are good exercises to understand the “Packing” analysis technique.
