Head off the line – Learning English Through Football Podcast: 2021 Champions League Man City vs PSG

DF: Hello everyone, this is Damian from the Languagecaster.com team here in a rather cold London – we might even have snow this weekend! I hope you are all doing well and that you enjoyed the football this week. The fifth set of fixtures in the Champions League took place and there were some big results, including AC Milan winning away at Atlético Madrid, former West Ham striker Sébastien Haller scoring his ninth Champions League goal of the season as Ajax won their fifth straight game; something that Liverpool also did after defeating Porto 2-0 – no doubt Damon will be happy with that result. He of course is in Tokyo – I wonder did he get up in the middle of the night to watch the game live?

We use a Guardian newspaper match report to help us look at some of the language used to describe the win for the Manchester side.
