But football works in cycles, and now we must enjoy the brutally efficient German reign of the Champions League! It wasn't long ago Italians had their day, and even La Liga's heyday we didn't have to swallow a Barca v Real final, phew. Enjoy today and watch it not for the result, but for the beauty of the game and the emotion it can bring. To often we watch with bated breath as we did on the last day of the season, but in a match like this one we can simply enjoy the football.
Champions League Saturday
When it came to the Champions League, you could say it was Milan's to lose.
