Incredible but true! Manchester United won the match against Liverpool, and the score was 2-1. This also means that I lost the bet I made on FC Liverpool’s victory. In fact, this was the first time in 4 years when “The Red Devils” achieved such performance, because until yesterday, they have not managed to defeat FC Liverpool since the 2007/2008 season.
The first goal was scored by the hosts, more exactly by Steven Gerrard, who made a nice shot into the far corner. Until then, the match seemed very similar to the one from the previous seasons at Anfield. “The Red Devils” rapidly came back from the dead, with an amazing execution of Rafael, and the coup de grâce belonged to Robin van Perise, who scored from a penalty.
Here you have a video with the summary of the match:
A dramatic moment was offered in the 39th minute, when the rivalry between the two teams made Jonjo Shelvey lose his mind. He was eliminated due to an aggressive tackling, which almost broke Evans’s tibia.
However, this match wasn’t just about football. The match was preceded by emotional moments, which seemed like a sheer ceremony, due to the supporters who made a special choreography in the memory of the 96 victims from “Hillsborough”.
Result: -3 units, bet lost
