    Often times, it’s easy to tell who’s fighting for good and who’s fighting for evil. It doesn’t take a genius to realize Obi-Wan is a force for good, and that Vader is evil. Show me someone who thinks that Voldemort is the protagonist and Harry is the antagonist and I’ll show you a liar.

    But this isn’t the case in sports. Every team has fans; how could one be viewed as evil if they have good-willed supporters? Instead of the good versus evil story, we love to obsess over the tales of the underdog versus the favorite.

    The scale of Milan’s task having to face Barcelona in the Quarter-Finals of the Champions League was evident from the day they were drawn together with arguably the strongest club side ever assembled in the history of football.

    This video shows Athletic Bilbao’s impressive defensive game plan against Barcelona in their league game. Led by their Argentinian coach Marcelo Bielsa, commonly known as Loco Bielsa, Athletic have been employing innovative tactics. Known for embracing youth, Bielsa’s first move was to dismiss three older players. He then brought in three youngsters to replace them: De Marcos (22 years old), Iturraspe (22 years old) and Jon Aurtenetxe (20 years old).

    This video shows you exactly how his man-marking system works. Against strong sides he relies on good defensive performances which results in a more counterattacking approach, while against weaker sides he plays a tiki-taka possession style.
