Join celebrated football pundit, author, radio show host and DJ Andy Brassell every Monday on the Soccerlens Show.
In Episode 29, Andy wraps up the European season with a look back at the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Inter. The perennial Italian champions became Europe’s top dogs again for the first time in 45 years, and Andy looks at the key men behind their triumph.
Jose Mourinho’s Bernabeu triumph was a good curtain raiser for what will be his new place of work. But will he manage to retain the famous stadium’s affection, with not just a tenth European champions title but a stylish brand of football demanded by the club and the public? It’s also safe to anticipate that Barcelona will come back strongly in an attempt to regain their Champions League crown – Andy assesses how their semi-final defeat to Inter may push them on to even greater heights.
Finally, Andy has a look at an exciting Champions League play-off round to kick off next season’s competition. Premier League Tottenham Hotspur could face Sampdoria, Braga or even shock qualifiers Auxerre as they seek to reach the group stages for the first time.
