In this month of April, the quarter-finals of the Champions League attract all the attention of fans of Soccer. Who will succeed Chelsea? Will Karim Benzema win a 5th C1 by carrying Real Madrid on his shoulders, will Villareal create a sensational surprise by leaving Bayern Munich? All these questions will soon have an answer and from this week, we will see more clearly since we will know the posters of the last four of the most majestic of club competitions. At the same time, we also play the equivalent of the European Cups on the South American continent which are La Copa Libertadores (the C1 of South America) and the Copa Sudamericana (which would be the equivalent of the Europa League).
We are still in the group stage but we see sensational goals there. Last week, this was still the case, especially on a corner… And what a corner!
Incredible vista and purpose
In the Copa Sudamericana, Damian Diaz delighted with his club Barcelona SC against the Wanderers club by scoring an inward corner, low to the ground, and from the outside of the foot. In addition, the victory was there for this first match of the group stage (4-2). Look at this jewel marked a little before the hour mark by the Argentinian native of Rosario:
Incoming corner? 𝐃𝐞́𝐣𝐚̀ 𝐯𝐮.
Corner returning to ground level? 𝐔𝐧 𝐩𝐞𝐮 𝐦𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐬.
But then a corner coming in low to the ground from the outside? 𝐀𝐛𝐬𝐨𝐥𝐮𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐣𝐚𝐦𝐚𝐢𝐬.
CONGRATULATIONS MR 🤝 pic.twitter.com/TuGuI8npl4

We can always criticize the placement of the goalkeeper but the audacity was indeed there…
Internet users react
On social networks, Internet users have commented en masse on this magnificent goal which is going around the Web. We read on Twitter:
- »It’s the 10 of shaolin soccer who could do this kind of feat… »
- »Not a real exter’ but more a whipped outside kick for those who have already played in a club… »
- »The goal that kills what… »
- » We should talk about the goalkeeper on the other hand… »
- »Is it in the middle of a match??? It’s crazy !!! »
- » What kills me in this goal is the chamber behind, it’s ok there was no more goalkeeper… »
In South America, Brazilian and Argentinian teams often rule the continental cups.
There are clubs with big budgets like Boca Juniors or River Plate, but it is the Brazilian teams that have won the titles in the Copa Libertadores, the biggest competition in South America for clubs, in recent years. Indeed, Palmeiras is the double title holder and in 2019, it was Flamengo (club in which David Luiz, ex Chelsea and PSG plays today) who had been crowned champion.
It should be noted that former glories of European football return to play in their training club or in the city of their childhood to end their career. Nene or Hulk are some examples…
