The Spaniards are no match for the Germans

It's been 77 years since the German involvement in the Spanish Civil way. When everything in Spain seemed to be dictated by the actions and inactions of the Germans. When headlines in Spanish tabloids are about events in Germany. That was way back in the 1930s. The headlines in Spain these last few days have been about events in Germany and how Spain will/should react. only that this time it was in a different kinda war.

Champion's league football have provided some of the great football the world have ever seen. But fate saw the two biggest clubs in Spain facing the two biggest teams in Germany in the semi finals of these years competition. against Bayern Munich and Real Madrid against Borussia Dortmund. The first leg of both ties were in Germany and both had similar results.

The Spaniards have dominated the world football for so long to the extent that the FIFA best XI was made up of 10 players from Barcelona and Real Madrid. Both teams went into this tie as clear favorites. But they came out as second best. thanks to a spirited performance and tactical discipline of the germans. With both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund scoring four goals against Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively to set a nearly impossible mountain for the Spaniards to climb to be able to make the finals.

I did predict in that my last post (2013 Champions League Semi Finals: We've seen Something Similar) that history might repeat itself again this year. And it seems that prophecy is well underway as it will take nothing short of a miracle to prevent this all german champions league finals i'm already dreaming of.

We've seen flair and confidence of the Spaniards against the tenacity and discipline of the Germans. I believe that nothing short of an all German finals will be a turn off for me. But this is the game of football. You never say never
