Liverpool beat the runaway Prem winners comfortably over two legs
Juventus scraped past us, an inexperienced CL team and Barca and Bayern don’t look the same force right now that they have done in previous CL campaigns.
Some of the Barca teams that won the CL were phenomenal

I still think a manager could take Mourihno or DI Matteos tactics and win a CL with a side not in your list of greats with a Little luck in a couple of legs over the knock out stages

League is always going to be tougher cause you need to be consistent over the course of the 38 games and a few great performances don't suffice.
But having said that, CL is no differen now. Madrid let liverpool play the way they did. Right from the first min,, madrud played were chipping the ball over the front 4 of Liverpool and mostly kept the ball on the sides on the wing, which thwarted liverpool s biggest threat which is transitions.

This is what Zidane and mourinho teams do. When you have got top class players, you don't need to commit men to create chances. Throughout the knockouts, they have been scoring with touches from 3/4 players.

I had a bet with my brother that if liverpool don't score in the first 30 min, madrid would win. Thanks to karius it was a lot easier. But trust me, they would have found a way to score with bale and asensio, if the game was a stalemate.

Plus the energy that klopp teams expend, they would be shot by extra time. So Zidane got his tactics spot on.

This is exactly why they have won 3 in a row. They just need 3/4 players in ronaldo/benzema/marcelo/modric to combine to score without it even looking like a chance.

Many are even aerial one touch passes which are impossible to defend, like marcelos goal against bayern.

The quality of barca/madrid/bayern/juventus is so high, it's almost as difficult as winning the league now. Just look at the past decade.

Its worth noting, liverpool didn't have to beat any of the above teams to get to the final
Yes it's much more plausible than winning the league, but my point was that it is also a lot more difficult than it used to be and the concentration of wealth and world class players in a few teams has made it so.

The teams that i mentioned are not the sides they used to be but are still better than most others r in Europe. Plus their players have the experience of winning such matches and that is why they scrape through.
