In our series honoring the first 90min decade, we couldn’t stop ranking our favorite Champions League moments from the last 10 years:
We present you the 10 best moments of the last decade in the Champions League:
The Dutch player gave Bayern victory in the 89th minute of the match against Borussia Dortmund who had won the hearts of fans of this sport by drawing the game just nine minutes earlier.
Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona gave Manchester United one of the greatest football lessons to be remembered in a Champions League final. A stratospheric Messi and a sweet Villa destroyed the team led by Sir Alex Ferguson.
The constant criticism of Cristiano Ronaldo for not being able to score as a Chilean dissipated at the moment in which the Portuguese scored a real goal against Juventus of Turin that considerably put the tie for the Whites on track in the quarterfinals of the season 2017-2018.
The first great comeback against Barça. Roma had just conceded four goals at the Camp Nou (1-4) and needed a miraculous result to advance to the semifinals of the Champions League. A goal from Kostas Manolas with ten minutes remaining for the final whistle sent the Catalans home for their away goal.
One of the best Barça in history faced a great Chelsea in search of his first Champions League. The Catalans were superior throughout the tie, but luck fell on the side of the blues, who won the first leg 1-0. A goal from Torres in the last minute when Barcelona was in need of scoring put an end to the hopes of the Catalan team.
An always criticized Gareth Bale became the hero of the Champions League final with a Chilean who will go down in history as one of the best goals of all the finals that have been played.
The other great comeback Barcelona suffered was perhaps even tougher. A comfortable result at the Camp Nou vs Liverpool led the Catalans to relax. Actually, despite having won 3-0 thanks to an excellent Leo Messi, the team was not even better than its rival. Three goals in the first sixty minutes of the game at Anfield equalized the tie, and a distraction from the entire defense of the Catalan club allowed Origi to overtake his team on the scoreboard finishing at pleasure. Very hard blow.
Ten Hag’s Ajax had eliminated Real Madrid and Juventus in the round of 16 and quarter respectively. The last obstacle he had to play again in a Champions League final was Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham. Despite Ajax winning the first leg 1-0 in London and holding a 2-0 lead in the return leg, three goals from Lucas Moura in the second half put Spurs into the final of the top European competition . One of them in the last play of the game.
It seemed that the tenth would never come, and that match against Atlético de Madrid in 2014 had been complicated from the start, as Atleti took a 1-0 lead. Two minutes before the game came to an irremediable end, Sergio Ramos tied the contest with a spectacular header. The extension was a monologue of the white team that ended up winning 4-1.
The most complicated comeback in history. 8/3/17. PSG had just won 4-0 at the Parque de los Príncipes, and Barça was not going through its best moment in terms of football. A return match that touched perfection allowed the Catalans to advance to the round by endorsing six goals to the Parisian team. Spectacular Neymar.
