Liverpool, England (AP) -8 wins.
That’s the only thing that can stand between Liverpool and perhaps the greatest achievement in British football history.RELATED
The mythical achievement of winning all four major titles in one season, the four championships, is a goal set by top England clubs at the beginning of each season.
However, given the pressure on the team and the injuries and luck fluctuations, catching the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup is almost out of the question from the beginning.
In fact, at the start of the campaign, British bookmakers offered 3,000-1 odds that Liverpool could win all four tournaments.
They are now at 8-1.
Liverpool have already reached the FA Cup Final, already the winner of the League Cup, after defeating Chelsea with a penalty in the February final. It’s popular here to play against Chelsea again and advance to the Premier League finals. After winning 2-0, he surpassed Villarreal in the first leg of the semi-final on Wednesday.
The tough race for the premier title with Manchester City wasn’t even tougher. One point behind, Liverpool came in second in five games.
Not surprisingly, the euphoria of tournaments in Liverpool has skyrocketed.
“I don’t want to keep my emotions and people crazy about it, no problem,” said Jurgen Klopp.
“I know our people well. They are also realists, but they are ready to dream whenever they have the opportunity to do so,” he added.
Well, it’s no longer a dream. Surprisingly, that’s a real possibility.
Winning the Champions League, the National League and the two National Cups was not achieved by any of the five major European leagues (England, Spain, Germany, Italy and France).
After France abolished the League Cup in 2020, England is currently one of the five countries that still have two cups, so it is almost impossible now. Germany did it in 2007 and Spain hasn’t had an equivalent since 1986.
However, it was achieved by Celtic Glasgow in the 1966-1967 campaign. The Scottish club won all three national trophies before defeating Inter Milan in the Europa League final in Lisbon.
Given the tough nature of the UK campaign, Liverpool’s performance certainly outperforms it. Especially considering the quality of opposition to the city.
With the exception of Celtic, eight clubs have completed the treble of the Europa League, the Europa League and the National Cup: Ajax (1971-72), PSV Eindhoven (1987-88), Manchester United (1998-99), Barcelona (2008-09), Inter Milan (2009-10), Bayern Munich (2012-13), Barcelona (2014-15), Bayern (2019-20).
For many, Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta’s 2019 Pep Guardiola’s illustrious Barcelona is the benchmark for all six titles in a year. In addition to treble, the Spanish Super Cup, Club World Cup and UEFA. Super cup.
Can Liverpool surpass them?
