We all know that Brazil has the best footballers in the world. Although their national team hasn’t won the World Cup since 2002, this nation has produced numerous superstars who changed the history of this game.
Right now, there are several players from this South American country who are the leaders in their clubs, and who have managed to take them to another level. In this article, we will mention some of those examples from the near history.
We all remember Ronaldinho. It is probably the most attractive player we’ve ever seen. And not only that but perhaps the best one in our time. Until he arrived at Barcelona, the Spanish powerhouse was struggling on both domestic and the international stage. But once he landed from Paris Saint-Germain, everything changed. Barca set the foundations of a dynasty which ruled the Europan football and won all the trophies at one moment. Also, Blaugrana became the most attractive team to watch, all because of Ronaldinho.
The next guy on our list is Lucas Moura. Though he might not be the player of Ronaldinho’s caliber, the pacey attacker changed the course of Tottenham’s history. On several occasions, Moura was the guy who scored goals which pushed the Spurs forward. His performance against Ajax in the Champions League semifinals is an epic one, and the hat-trick scored, sealed with a last-second dagger is one of the biggest moments in Tottenham’s history.
Right now, the Spurs are the third favorite for winning the title in the English Premier League with the odds 20/1 and are tied sixth in the Champions League with the same odds. The situation regarding the FA Cup is even better for them, as the bookies gave them 15/2 odds to lift the trophy.
Canadian sports betting websites are offering all sorts of bets on Tottenham, and some of them are very interesting such as Spurs to score the most goals in the Premier League, with the odds at 16/1. With Moura and Kane upfront that wouldn’t be strange to see at all.
The next guy on our list is Philippe Coutinho. During his stint at Liverpool, Coutinho has become one of the best midfielders in the world. On the other hand, Liverpool rose from the mediocrity and became a title contender and a force in European football. He himself made the Reds one of the most efficient teams on the continent, using his knowledge to lead the team and make his teammates better players.
While mentioning Liverpool, the latest trophy of the Champions League arrived mostly because of goalkeeper Alisson. We’ve seen the Reds in the finals a year before, but they lacked a world-class goalie who will be reliable in front of the net. Alisson wasn’t just reliable, he was absolutely outstanding, and Liverpool looked completely different with him onboard. It is unbelievable to see how a single person could change the entire looks of one team.
The Reds are now the third favorite to win the Champions League title with odds at 7/1, while the bookies give 14/5 for them to take the Premiership.
Kaka will close this article. Arguably one of the best midfielders of all time was the essential piece in AC Milan’s Champions League quest back in 2007. Rossoneri was struggling severely until he arrived at San Siro. They were without a significant trophy for a while, and during his stint there, Milan won the Serie A title, UCL, UEFA Super Cup, and the FIFA Club World Cup.
