newspaper & the first

Soccer has entered the final stretch all throughout Europe. Some leagues already have a team that has clinched the league title; other leagues are currently witnessing heated races for first place. Teams are trying to collect as many points as possible from their remaining games to finish as high in their league as possible. Players are showcasing their talents with hopes of being selected for their country’s World Cup Squad.

While all this is going on, the Champions League has progressed into the semifinals with only four teams remaining. Soon, only two teams will remain to fight for the crown of Europe. Atletico Madrid will be facing Chelsea, and Real Madrid will battle it out with Bayern Munich to earn a spot in the final. The first leg of the draws will be on April 22 – 23, while the second legs will be played on April 29 – 30.

Atletico Madrid vs. Chelsea

I haven’t gotten tired of writing that Atletico Madrid are having a phenomenal season, and I hope you haven’t gotten bored of reading it, because that is the only way to summarize their season so far. They are three points ahead of Real Madrid and four points ahead of Barcelona as La Liga has only five match weeks left. As if that weren’t enough, Atletico Madrid eliminated Barcelona in the previous round of the Champions League with a 1-1 away tie and a 1-0 win at home. They were definitely the better side of the two teams.

The pressure they put on Barcelona paid off, and they also missed a slew of chances in the game at home. Diego Simeone has by now established himself as one of football’s brightest and most talented managers. What he’s done with Atletico Madrid this season is perhaps enough for the manager of the year award, but he isn’t settling with that yet. He will bring the pressure he brought to Barcelona to Chelsea as well and look to eliminate them.

Chelsea sits in second place in the English Premier League, only two points behind Liverpool. The two teams will play each other in two weeks in what may be the deciding match of the championship in the league. Chelsea’s Champions League run has been exciting to say the least. After losing 3-1 to Paris Saint-Germain in Paris, they managed to win 2-0 thanks to a late goal from Demba Ba and ended up moving to the semifinals.

Mourinho deployed an extremely offensive roster with three strikers and two more offensive-minded midfielders, and it paid off. However, I’m sure he wasn’t happy that his team ended up bringing the draw to that point. Chelsea, while in general performing at an extremely high level, has slipped every now and then. If they have one of those slips against Atletico Madrid, they will surely be penalized.

One aspect that makes this match interesting is Atletico Madrid’s starting goalie, Thibaut Courtois. Courtois has been on loan at Atletico Madrid from Chelsea since 2011, and he has proven to be one of the most important players on the team. At age 21, he has established himself as one of Europe’s best. However, it seems like Atletico Madrid will be having a hard playing the star keeper against Chelsea. Apparently, his contract has a clause that states that Atletico Madrid have to pay Chelsea a hefty fee of around 4.5 million euros per game.

Atletico Madrid’s president has announced that they cannot pay such a fee, but fortunately for them, they have the support of the Union of European Football Associations. The UEFA has stated that such clauses are against the spirit of the sport and that such a clause will be null and void, paving the way for Courtois to appear against Chelsea. It is still a mystery whether or not Chelsea will actually pursue the fee asked or prevent Courtois from playing against them. Courtois has the potential to be the star of the tie and save Atletico from elimination.

Whether Courtois plays or not, this match will be extremely exciting to watch. Both teams truly play with their hearts and apply major pressure on their opponents. Fans will watch two matches contested until the last whistle with a lot of fighting for the ball in the midfield. It will be hard to call the team to advance, as it may be decided on away goals or maybe even penalty kicks.

Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich

These two European giants came here after overcoming fear of elimination. Bayern Munich tied with Manchester United 1-1 in England and won 3-1 in Munich. However, Manchester United were the better side in the first leg and managed to get the first goal in the second leg. People were not expecting that, as they thought that Pep Guardiola’s side would have cruised to the semifinals. It goes to show that nothing in soccer is easy.

Furthermore, after losing to Nurnberg in the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich suffered a 3-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund this past weekend. The players apparently have a lack of concentration when it comes to the Bundesliga, but Guardiola needs to make sure that his squad is in tiptop mental shape for the Real Madrid match-up.

Real Madrid’s loss to Barcelona may have cost them the league, but they are still performing well offensively. However, after beating Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the first leg of the quarterfinals, they lost 2-0 in match in Dortmund. If it weren’t for Iker Casillas, perhaps we would have seen a semifinal match-up of Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. Borussia Dortmund had plenty of chances to equalize and aggregate, and eventually strike a goal that would have seen them past Real Madrid. However, their strikers failed to make chances with Henrikh Mkhitaryan leading the way with a miss on an open goal. Thus, Real Madrid managed to withstand Borussia Dortmund’s onslaught and saw themselves to the semifinals. Their task won’t be easy as they face their third German opponent after eliminating Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund.

The last time these two sides came together (in the 2012 semifinals), Real Madrid ended up losing on penalty kicks. They will seek revenge, but it won’t be easy. Ancelotti’s side tends to push higher up with players like Gareth Bale, Di Maria, and Cristiano Ronaldo, while Guardiola always prefers a calmer and more collected approach focused on controlling the ball. It will be a battle between offensive and controlled soccer. Although it will be extremely close, I still see Bayern Munich with a slight edge in the matchup. Dortmund showed that Real Madrid’s defense has key issues that can be exploited, and Guardiola will definitely look to make the most of those issues. Don’t miss out on these two giants battling it out for a spot at the final!

Germany's women reach the European soccer final, despite shaky semi

It was a hard-fought 3-1 victory against Norway in the semi-final. Germany's women owed their win to their substitutes, who scored all the German goals after Norway grabbed an early lead.

Simone Laudehr and the German bench celebrate her all-important equalizer

On Thursday evening, Germany's women footballers will take on England in Helsinki in a bid to win their fifth consecutive European Championship.

However, they had a tough time fending off Norway in the semi-final on Monday night. Germany went in trailing by a goal to nil at half time, after Norway scored from a corner, using a clever set-play to confuse the German defense. Coach Silvia Neid was fairly modest after the match, when asked what magic she had worked in the half- time team talk.

"During the break, I just pointed out the things we needed to do better," Neid said.

However, Neid's involvement in the German victory was far greater than she herself suggested. The tactical changes she made at half-time - which freed the Germans up to push forward against a defensive Norwegian side - helped transform the game. Furthermore, all three German goals came from substitutes that Neid introduced in the course of the match.

Simone Laudehr equalized on 59 minutes, and two minutes later Celia Okoyino da Mbabi put Germany in front, completing the game's turnaround. Norway struggled to threaten the German goal after falling behind, and in the dying moments Fatmire Bajramaj grabbed another for Germany, putting the result beyond any doubt.

However, the win was nowhere near as convincing as the comfortable 4-0 victory against Norway that the German women chalked up in the groups stages.

"Sometimes as a team you play poorly for part of a match," goal-scorer Simone Laudehr said stoically after the game. "But we really wanted to reach the final, and tonight, we fought for it."

As the women's game continues to struggle for international recognition, just 2,765 spectators attended the high-profile match in Helsinki.

Germany square off against England - who scraped into the final with a 2-1 win against the Netherlands after extra-time - in the final on Thursday evening. The Germans are hot favorites for that encounter, and it's hardly a surprise: if they win it will be their fifth consecutive European Championship, and their seventh in total.

EURO 2012 - The 2012 UEFA European Soccer Championship

The 2012 UEFA European Soccer Championship, commonly referred to as EURO 2012, was the 14th European Championship for men's national soccer teams organised by UEFA. The final tournament, between 8 June and 1 July 2012, was hosted for the first time by Poland and Ukraine, and was won by Spain, who beat Italy 4 - 0 in the final at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine. Poland and Ukraine's bid was chosen by UEFA's Executive Committee in 2007. The two host soccer teams qualified automatically, with the remaining 14 finalists decided by a qualifying competition, featuring 51 teams, from August 2010 to November 2011. The EURO 2012 was the last European Championship to use the 16 team soccer finals format first used in 1996. Starting at EURO 2016 onward, there will be 24 finalists. EURO 2012 was played at eight venues, four in each host country. Five new stadiums were built for the tournament, and the hosts invested heavily in improving infrastructure such as railways and roads at UEFA's request. EURO 2012 set attendance records for the 16 team soccer format, for the highest aggregate attendance of 1,4 million and average per soccer game of around 46,000.

Spain made history by winning EURO 2012

Spain made history in magical fashion as they outclassed Italy and claimed a successive European crown to add to their 2010 World Cup triumph. Vicente del Bosque's side staged a compelling claim to be the greatest international side of all time as the EURO 2012 final was transformed into an exhibition with Italy - who performed creditably for long periods - passed brutally into submission. Every quality that has led to them dominating world soccer since they won EURO 2008 and the World Cup in South Africa two years later was brought to bear. It was a heartbreaking night for Italy and coach Cesare Prandelli but there was no shame in being beaten by a team of such quality. When you play the EURO 2012 browser game you are in charge, choose your favorite soccer team, and see if you can take home the gold.
