Is the cream of the Premier League’s crop finally rising to the top?
After five-plus seasons of relative futility, something special seems to be brewing among the five Premier League representatives in the 2017-18 UEFA Champions League. English teams are playing well and winning.
Tottenham’s win over Real Madrid, Manchester City’s victory over Napoli, and other results on Gameday 4 of the group stage suggest the Premier League finally has a chance of producing a Champions League winner for the first time since Chelsea did so in 2012.
On another side of the soccer world, Major League Soccer’s playoffs are in full swing, with the Knockout Round and Eastern and Western Conference semifinals series offering both thrills and duds.
In addition to the MLS postseason, NESN.com’s Marc DiBenedetto and Marcus Kwesi O’Mard examine why Premier League teams are thriving in the Champions League on this week’s episode of the “NESN Soccer Show,” which you can watch in the above video.
