There really is a difference!
Jesus Velasco in anticipation of this final: “We are ready and our motivation could not be greater. The players are feeling a little tired after the effort against Benfica, but this match will give us more strength for the final. There is not much to say about Sporting because now everyone knows how good they are. They are in place with merit and are the defending champions. We are talking about a great team that stands out at every moment of the match.”
Nuno Dias in anticipation of this final: “The team is in good shape, mentally and physically. It is no secret that we will face a very difficult opponent, but we will prepare in the best possible way so that we can reclaim the title. I think the best way to explain the success we’ve had in recent years has to do with the fact that we are always in a constant learning process. Barcelona are a team that used to win and the way they beat Benfica says all you need to know about them. Our success will depend on our ability to overcome those times when we will have to suffer and others when we need to be effective when we are superior.”
Looking at the coaches of the two teams in particular, we are in the presence of two authentic icons of world futsal: Nuno Dias, who in the semi-final match, against ACCS, reached 50 Champions League matches (always on duty. from Sporting), and Jesus Velasco, Who made 57 appearances in the competition, are the two coaches most attended on the bench in Europe’s most prestigious club competition.
But history still tells Sporting (more): The green and white logo is the first to reach five finals in six seasons and may be the first to win three European titles in four seasons.
Still in regards to Leonen’s prospects, it is worth noting that should they win this afternoon’s match, Sporting enters the banned group of teams that have managed to win the title in two consecutive seasons – something that, so far, only has Playas Castellon and Inter. Movistar (both from Spain) succeeded.
It is worth noting that both Sporting and Barcelona were present in five finals. The Lions won twice and lost three, and the Catalans, on the contrary, won three and lost two. Today everything can be restricted to this class … It should be noted that Inter Movistar (Spain) is the team that was most often present in the Champions League final (8), and is also the record holder for the number of awards won ( 5 ).
It must be remembered that Sporting has the possibility of winning the Champions League for the third time in its history (after the titles achieved in 2018/2019 and in 2020/2021), and if that happens, Nuno Dias’ team will equalize Barcelona with three titles. won.
Sporting will meet Barcelona this afternoon (16 hours) in a match that will decide the European Futsal Championship. As usual, A BOLA will follow online all the events of the match, as the Lions will want to repeat the achievement they achieved last season, when they beat Barcelona specifically (4-3).
