- From Liverpool-Chelsea in the FA Cup to Leipzig’s possible first title, they seem exciting
PSV’s victory against Ajax in the Dutch Cup final, played last Sunday, invites us to review how the different European football Cups are on April 18.
In Spain, an atypical final
Next Saturday, April 23, with La Cartuja as the stage, Betis and Valencia will meet in a final that the fan fleeing from Madrid and Barça celebrates. In the last decade, only the 2020 Real Sociedad-Athletic pandemic has occurred without the presence of at least one of the two giants of Spanish football.
Liverpool-Chelsea in the FA Cup
After beating Manchester City and Crystal Palace respectively last weekend, Liverpool and Chelsea will meet in the FA Cup final on May 14. It will be a repeat of the League Cup final this year in which the ‘red’ team won on penalties.
The Coppa seems vibrant
During this week the matches of the second leg of the Coppa semifinals will be held. On the one hand, Juventus have everything in their face to eliminate Fiorentina after the 0-1 they achieved in the first leg, while on the other Inter and Milan play it all or nothing after a zero match in the first chapter of the series (0-0).
Is Leipzig’s first title coming?
In Germany, this week the semifinals are played in a single match. It will be without the presence of either Bayern Munich or Dortmund, already eliminated. Specifically, a Hamburg-Freiburg and a Leipzig-Union Berlin. It seems like a golden opportunity for Dani Olmo and company’s Leipzig to win what would be the first title in their short history.
Atypical duel in France
In France, Paris Saint-Germain will not be in the final. Losd and Pochettino were eliminated in the round of 16 by a Nice team that will fight for the title at the Stade de France, on May 7, against Pablo Chirivilla’s Nantes. Aim for a match.
Early finish in Portugal
Throughout this week the second leg of the semifinals of the Taça de Portugal will be held. On the one hand, Tondela has everything to gain access to the final, after winning 3-0 against Mafra in the first leg. In the other, an early final between Porto and Sporting. In the first leg, Porto won 1-2.
