Didn’t I ask you guys to pray for something ? Well, some of you didn’t and look what has come about. You might say it provides them with an opportunity to avenge their last year’s defeat but how sweet will the alleged revenge over a team who went through only because of an needless injury time OG be ?
Facing up against the team whom you have done a double over might have been more enticing. Hold on there a bit, didn’t this team already do a double over the other team as well. Hmm, this team simply looks unstoppable. Anyway, the other team can be dealt with at the final but then losing to a better team in a final wouldn’t be as humiliating to them as losing both home and away in a quarter final or even in a semi for that matter.
Now then, why am I even assuming that the other team will go to the final? It is true that the four teams in that part of the draw could so easily have been accommodated in the same group in the opening round but still, they have to get past them right. It is not as if they dealt their die-hard rivals a 4-1 drubbing at the away game. In fact, losing to one of these teams might be even more harder to digest.
Coming back to the match set up due to lack of co-operation from you people, it shouldn’t be all that bad. Both teams look to have come alive in the recent past and the return of a certain Ghanaian might make the tie a bit more balanced than the BPL ties. The draw does make the path easy for the other team to reach consecutive finals but it also has chalked up a cracking lower half.
So whichever way you may look at it and whichever team you support, CL has once again shown why it just can’t disappoint anyone.
