donutmedialab.com — Liverpool failed to win a quadruple this season. But the Reds need not be discouraged, because they have already won two trophies.
Liverpool’s hopes to seal four titles in a season have been dashed in the past week. After winning the Premier League Cup on 27 February and the FA Cup on 14 May, Juergen Klopp’s side face two super important matches in a week.
The first is the last Premier League game of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 22 May, then the second is the Champions League final against Real Madrid on 28 May. The hope of bringing four trophies in a season lies ahead.
But what power, the results are not as expected. Liverpool did win 3-1 over Wolves, but the victory would not mean much if Manchester City also beat Aston Villa. Unfortunately for the Reds, that’s what happened.
The Citizens won 3-2 after trailing two goals, and managed to lock the Premier League trophy at the top in the last week with a collection of 93 points, one point ahead of Liverpool. Pupus has a target to repeat the achievements in 2020.
Less than a week later, luck again avoided Liverpool. Against Madrid in Paris, Sadio Mane et al even fell 0-1 through a single goal by Vinicius Junior. The seventh Champions League trophy also drifted from the grasp.
Although the history of the quadruple failed to create, but appreciation for Liverpool must still be given. Because, they managed to reach three finals of the competition this season, plus pressing Man City until the last week in the Premier League.
In addition, the achievement of two trophies at the end of the season is not a bad thing. This indicates that some targets have been achieved, although not all of them. Remember, not many can do it this season.
In the five big European leagues (England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France), only Madrid has more titles than Liverpool. Los Blancos won the Spanish League, Spanish Super Cup and Champions League. Apart from that, nothing.
Inter Milan won two trophies, namely the Coppa Italia and Italian Super Cup. While Chelsea won the European Super Cup and Club World Cup. The number of both is the same as Liverpool.
AC Milan won one trophy, namely the Italian League champion. The same applies to Man City, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain who won their respective leagues.
AS Roma won the UEFA Conference League, while Eintracht Frankfurt won the Europa League. Then there are Nantes (Coupe de France champions), RB Leipzig (DFB-Pokal champions), to Real Betis (Copa del Rey champions) who won one trophy this season.
You could say, this season brings quite a lot of surprises. Many non-seeded teams have won trophies that are usually won by big teams. Therefore, Liverpool’s success this season is actually also extraordinary.
They are much better than Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United, Arsenal, Atletico Madrid or Tottenham Hotspur who have absolutely no trophies to display this season.
