APOEL can cause upsetSep 22, 2014
"One of the most surprising results in the Champions League was APOEL's 1-0 defeat at FC Barcelona. The way the Cypriot team presented themselves should be a warning for other clubs", Johan Cruyff wrote in his weekly column in De Telegraaf newspaper on Monday.
"APOEL is not a team that you can beat easily and they can cause an upset in this group."
"Real Madrid know what it is like to suffer an upset. They 'needed' losing to Atlético Madrid and Real Sociedad to thrash FC Basel 5-1 and Deportivo La Coruña 8-2 this week. It is the same story: when you have so many stars in your team there is a risk that they all want to be the man of the match. You could still see this happening when they conceded the two goals against Deportivo, because a few defenders forgot what their main tasks were."
"When these errors occur, even Real Madrid's results can go back and forth. This proves that football is unpredictable and that is why it is such a great game."
