Yesterday was an important day for soccer fans from the top three leagues in Europe. The winners of the English, Italian, and Spanish championships have been determined yesterday even if only one of them actually played. Manchester United need just one more point in the game with Arsenal, and they got it after a bore draw. The Manchester team won the Premier League for the 18th time and now they have equalized Liverpool at the number of league titles won.
In the Spanish championship, Barcelona have been crowned winners after Real Madrid lost 3-2 away at Villarreal. This was their 19th Primera Division title, and it is said that Barcelona is playing one of the best soccer of all time. This team led by Leo Messi, Samuel Eto’o, Thierry Henry, Andres Iniesta, and Xavi was compared with Johann Cruyff’s team best known for playing “total football” thanks to their offensive tactics. Barcelona and Manchester United will meet on May 27th in the Uefa Champions League final, the most important club competition. This game is the most expected of the season, and this time the best teams will meet as both are regarded as the teams who play the most beautiful soccer.
Meanwhile, in the Italian championship, Inter Milano won after AC Milan lost 2-1 away at Udinese. The team trained by Jose Mourinho won their fourth consecutive title with minimum fuss. It is said that AC Milan plays the best soccer in Italy, however, their old players who stay injured most of the time cannot cope with the power and intelligence of the Inter Milan team. Inter Milan will play today against Siena in a match without importance, and they will also be handed the Scudetto trophy.
