Explanation Of The Difficult Words
The Champions League (pronounced “Tschämpiens Liig”) is the highest European competition in soccer. It pits the best teams in Europe against each other. The predecessor of the Champions League is the “European Cup of National Champions”, where only the national champions played against each other, in the Champions League also play the runners-up and from many countries also the third and fourth place.
FC Bayern is the record champion of the German Bundesliga because the club has won the championship 24 times – more than any other club.
In the Champions League, except for the final, the teams always play each other twice, so there is a first leg and a second leg, once away at the opponent’s home and once at home in their own stadium.
A soccer match lasts 90 minutes and is divided into two halves, each lasting 45 minutes. There is a break of 15 minutes after 45 minutes.
