Juventus easily beat AC Milan 2-0
Barca beat Real 3-2(5 goals)
Palermo beat Inter 4-3 in a cup final rematch
Man united came from 2 goals down to beat City 3-2 @ Wembley
Last week,whilst not a big game,AC milan came from 3 goals down to win 4-3 @ Lecce,their fans are calling it 'The Istanbul Reverse',kinda funny,still a rare feat,tends to happen every now and then.
This season's big games have had many goals,the away teams have come out swinging,not looking for 0-0 draws,is football changing?What has triggered this attacking mentality?Granted in high scoring games that some of the goals have come from poor defending,but some of the goals have been top notch.Maybe with the top clubs from around the world drawing player from all parts of the globe and having fewer local players,there is less pressure on them than a set of home grown players to perform in a Milan or Manchester derby.
At this rate the score in the Champions League final could be 4-3,or something in that region.
