Although the English Premier League records the highest spending in the transfer market every season based on huge capital, it is in a situation where it is not able to use its strength in international competitions.안전놀이터
Manchester City drew 1-1 with RB Leipzig in the first leg of the round of 16 of the 2022-2023 UEFA Champions League held at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, Germany on the 23rd (Korean time). Man City took the lead with Riyad Mahrez’s goal in the 27th minute of the first half, but in the 25th minute of the second half, Leipzig defender Gbardiol equalized and finished the game without an additional goal.
With this, all the UCL round of 16 first leg schedules have been completed, and all Premier League teams have been unable to win. Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, who had previously played, lost 0-1 away from AC Milan and Dortmund, respectively.
On the 22nd, Liverpool suffered a humiliating defeat 2-5 by allowing 5 runs even after scoring 2 goals first. Then, last season’s league defending champion, Man City, was also unable to win. This is a clear comparison to last season.
Last season, four Premier League teams advanced to the round of 16 of the UCL. At that time, Manchester United, not Tottenham, were in the tournament with Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea. After that, Man Utd was eliminated, Man City advanced to the semifinals, and Liverpool unfortunately lost to Real Madrid (Spain) in the final and finished runner-up.
However, the Premier League this season is showing completely opposite results. The Premier League ranked first in the winter transfer market in January, spending transfer fees reaching 3 billion euros (approximately 4 trillion won). However, as the result was not commensurate with this, the burden on the teams advancing to the UCL increased.
