2019 was an action-packed year with plenty of memorable moments for soccer in both the club and international level.
Starting from MLS Cup to FIFA Women’s World Cup and gambling VAR, the last year witnessed its own fair share of the marquee moments. If you are a football fan, what match did you enjoy the most?
From champions to underachievers, incidents to entertainment, football fans have seen it all. Let’s look back and check the important highlights of the year so that you can login to your Betway account and place your bets by strategizing the right way.
Liverpool- the King of the year
In 2019, after Liverpool’s presiding 4-0 win over the second-place Leicester City, it has entered their final match with only one loss in the Premier League. The defeat was some sort of solidarity which came in the middle of the last season in January, in which Liverpool pushed Manchester City totally in the Premier League title race, but somehow missed out by one point.
The one particular loss came against all the eventual champions at the Etihad Stadium. Right from then Liverpool has won trophies like the European Super Cup, Champions League, and the most recent- the Club World Cup. Plenty of Betway fans will be remembering the match for sure.
The affection of American markets for European Teams and Leagues
The United States has been seeing increased popularity when it comes to football, with both La Liga and the Premier League strengthening their efforts to gain hold of the U.S. market.
For instance, NBC and the Premier League have hosted 3 fan fests last year. La Liga also collaborated with a celebrity chef to open their Official Home of La Liga in New York, in a bid to make the game more popular.
Copa Libertadores Final
The 2018 Copa Libertadores final between Boca Juniors and River Plate has been a point of attention in 2018, which was won by the latter. The game, originally slated to be held in Buenos Aires, was moved to Madrid because of violent incidents and unrest. The final had two of soccer’s biggest rivals facing each other. Since the second leg was held in Europe, it caught more media attention.
Boca Junior Vs River Plate is just not another derby for the soccer lovers but a new polarization of rich and poor altogether. Though it didn’t really follow through to the showpiece of 2019 South American, the event of this year was really a big game. It has been a symbolic battle in the class hierarchy.
Other than these, there have been many such major milestones in the 2019 soccer world. A unique 2019 soccer event includes the story of English midfielder Nico Yennaris, who is the first foreign-born player to represent the Chinese national team – with no Chinese ancestry. It seems the Asian behemoth is looking to set the marks straight when it comes to their ranking in football. Which teams do you think will make a mark this year? Let us know below.
