Wondering which are some of these moments? Let’s have a look at the most glorious.
- When Real Madrid won against Barcelona in 2012
Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are two of the best football managers of all time, but fans would have never expected Guardiola to leave Barça because of a lost match.

Now, that’s a memorable moment all Manchester City supporters brag about.
- When Greece won the Euro in 2004
Greece has been a sporadic presence on the European football maps since the dawns of time. Thinking of them winning the Euro tournament was laughable.

- When Liverpool made its comeback into the Champions League in 2005

Fierce battles on the field led to penalty moments, with AC Milan gloriously wasting three opportunities to change the odds in their favour. Liverpool, on the other hand, only missed one penalty, and definitely showed the football world how history is written.
