UEFA Champions League 2014: Who Will Win?

   In club football. UEFA Champions league clearly stands out as the best, most interesting and most attractive competition in the world. 32 of the best European teams compete for the trophy that is awarded in May, after group stages and knockout rounds. For the 2013/2014 season, the final match will be played in Lisbon and the road for a place in the final continued in February, when first games of the knockout stages were played. After several games and group stages, we have two teams that considerably stronger than others and count as favorites.

   In the group stages, the team that has impressed mostly is the title defender from previous season. Bavarian giants, Bayern Munich. In the exciting campaign, Bayern won the title by beating Dortmund in the final, which was the final match for manager Jupp Heynckens. However, Bayern fans did not worry as the board of the club already confirmed the appointment of former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola. 

   Many feared for Bayern, since Guardiola only managed Barcelona before. The team picked up and improved significantly from the Heynckens era and is playing a completely different football, with several player embarking as potential leaders of the team in the future. The atmosphere of the team is great and there are no bad implications nor signs of negative energy. With the signing of Barcelona diamond, Thiago Alcantara Bayern received the necessary creativity in the midfield and applied the tiki taka philosophy, previously used in Barcelona by Guardiola. Although no team defended the Champions league trophy in the past 20 years, Bayern looks like a very comfortable candidate to achieve this and it would be a bit of a surprise if he fails to do so. 

   After a relatively slow start of the Primera and the Champions league season, the situation at Real Madrid improved heavily and Real Madrid is now top of the table and is seriously looking to compete for the Champions league trophy after many years. With the signing of Gareth Bale, Real Madrid received that extra forward that can be dangerous to the opponent’s defense and with his outside-box qualities, he is a true reinforcement to a Real Madrid squad. Of course, we can’t forget about the world’s best player in this moment, Cristiano Ronaldo, who is playing the football of his life and almost singlehandedly leads Real Madrid this season. 

   Manager Carlo Ancelotti replaced Jose Mourinho and picked up his game and improved the squad with some unexpected moves, like promoting Jese Rodriguez to first team and giving Luka Modrić more space in the middle, who is, besides Bale and Ronaldo, the best player for Real Madrid so far. In order for a team to win the Champions league trophy, several conditions must be fulfilled, such as motivation, team spirit and team harmony. Currently, Real Madrid has all of that and I would not be surprised to see them lift the trophy in May.

   There is a list of other teams that could proceed to the finals and it would be unfair to exclude them automatically. But, in my all statistical pointers, these two teams have what it takes to make to the end.

Neymar's Official Barcelona Unveiling

neymar barcelona

Today Neymar was officially unveiled to the public.
Barcelona have paid a stunning 57 million euros for the young striker!
This is the second highest transfer for a Brazilian (Kaka's transfer to Real Madrid tops this one).

I've always been a big fan of Neymar.
Watching him play since he was 16 and grow in to the player he is today is really amazing. Now he begins his biggest test. With people doubting him saying hes overrated, flashy, etc. He has a lot to prove. Personally I think he will do great at Barcelona and prove all his doubters wrong.
But thats just me, what do you guys think?

How to: The Outside Elastico

Today I will be teaching you how to learn the Outside Elastico soccer / football trick and skill!
You may have seen or heard of this trick before. It is especially good for cutting inside when you are on the flanks. Basically its the opposite of the Elastico which is going in then out. The Outside Elastico goes outside then inside.

There are 2 versions of this trick: Beginner and Advanced


Step 1: Grab a cone and place it on the ground if you don't have a cone anything like a bag or shoe will work.

Step 2: Take about 5 steps back from the cone.

Step 3: Start dribbling towards the cone, when you first start you should do this slowly and then get faster as you practice more.

Step 4: As you get close to the cone take a small touch to the outside and then quickly touch the ball again to the inside. The second touch should be bigger then the first touch. Remember the touch going outside is to fool your opponent.

Step 5: Keep practicing this until you get better and faster. Eventually you can do the trick with out using two touches. When you feel comfortable try the trick with one touch: outside then in.


The more advanced version of the trick uses your heel to flick the ball to your toe in one quick motion. You may have seen Cristiano Ronaldo do this a couple of times. Here is a video showing a good example.
