Sometimes a match ends and we think to ourselves, ‘man, this might be the best football game i have ever watched.‘
Of course, there are a lot of factors that come into play. For example, Barcelona fans like me might say La Remontada against PSG wins the first prize. PSG supporters are certainly trying to erase that day from their memory. Likewise, Barcelona fans try to forget May 7, 2019. This day lives on in Liverpool tradition for the rest of time as the unimaginable happened.
Some fans love goals. The recent seven-goal thriller between Manchester City and Real Madrid may not be in this discussion for the biggest game, but it has captivated millions.
Then, of course, there is the drama. Whether it’s a World Cup, a European Championship, a Champions League, the last day of a league season or a playoff final, matches are simply better when there is more at stake.
The ‘game of the century‘ in 1970 between Italy and West Germany sent the Italians to the World Cup final with a 4-3 finish. Manchester United’s two late goals against Bayern Munich secured England’s first treble of the season.
