Liverpool. Few gave Liverpool a chance against Barcelona ahead of their Champions League semifinal against Barcelona on Tuesday. Blown away by Lionel Messi et al in the first-leg tie as Barcelona won 3-0 at the Camp Nou, Liverpool needed four goals to reach the final in Madrid on June 1.
Not the Barca management is taking the help of Congress leaders to project the loss as a moral victory.
Randeep Surjewala, Kapil Sibbal, and Ambika Soni have been projecting many Congress defeats as a moral victory and that is exactly what Barca wants. Some reasons that the Congress leaders have suggested the Barca management are ‘We have not lost to Real Madrid in Champions League this season’, ‘ We have the Spanish League in our bags’, ‘ This season the other teams were weak, we want to win the CL when there are stronger teams’, ‘ Not we cannot be upset by a high flying Ajax team’.
These reasons will surely help the Barca fan calm down and see the season as a successful one. Other teams like Man City and Real Madrid who were knocked out of the CL will also take the help of Congress leaders in the coming days.
