On Tuesday, the 7th of May, 2019, Liverpool shocked the world by overcoming a 3-0 semifinal deficit to bounce Lionel Messi and Barcelona from the Champions League. It was one of the most remarkable European victories in the history of a club that’s known for remarkable European victories; it seemed inconceivable that any team would top it for some time
Just 24 hours later, Tottenham Hotspur answered the call.
The London club pulled off a dramatic comeback — its second Champions League thriller in a month — in the final seconds of Wednesday’s semifinal against Ajax, which means that for just the second time in the competition’s history, two English teams will play in the final match.
According to the FiveThirtyEight Soccer Power Index (SPI), none of this was supposed to happen. Before the second legs of the two semifinals, SPI gave Tottenham a 25 percent chance to advance to the final and Liverpool just a 7 percent chance. But both teams pulled off the very, very unlikely, and now Madrid will be overrun on June 1 with overserved British fans chanting the names of their favorite players.
Seriously, guys I want you to learn from Ajax, it’s not over until the final whistle.
Are you strong in the Lord and His grace NOW, beware lest you fall like Ajax and Barcelona, watch and pray lest you enter temptation. Remember: “let him that thinks he standeth, take heed lest he fall… ” 1 Corinthians 10:12
Or are you weak like Liverpool or Tottenham? Don’t give up, miracles still happen in the eleventh hour!
What lessons did you gain from watching the match, or reading this post.
I’d love to hear from you!😍😍😍😍😍
