I walk into Amigos in Cedar Falls and the guy behind the counter recognizes my Chelsea FC scarf, smiles and asks me who is going to win between Monterrey and Liverpool.
“Monterrey has a chance,” I say.
He laughs. “C’mon. You’re being nice.”
I remind him that in the beautiful game, anything can happen.
Liverpool may have put two in the goal, but Monterrey gave them a fight. Liverpool carried the majority of the possession, but Monterrey had 16 shots, with half being shots on target.
Monterrey 1, Liverpool 2
