A funny comeback in the Champions League


By: Manu Tournoux

A hell of a combination of circumstances should allow a missing goalkeeper to reconnect with the C1.

A nightmare. On May 26, 2018, Liverpool lost in the Champions League final against Real Madrid (1-3), not without suffering two huge balls from their goalkeeper, Loris Karius.

The German goalkeeper, victim of a collision with Sergio Ramos during the match, suffered a concussion without knowing it, which had a terrible impact on his performance. And his career…

Loaned to Besiktas for two years afterwards, the person then defended the colors of Union Berlin before joining Newcastle in 2022. And it is in the cage of the Magpies that he will most certainly reconnect with the C1 this Wednesday evening, for the first time since that sad evening in 2018.

Nick Pope injured and Martin Dubravka probably also out, Loris Karius should be Newcastle’s last defense against AC Milan. A match which could allow the Magpies to reach the round of 16 of the Champions League. On the condition that PSG does not win in Dortmund at the same time.
