Football is one of the interesting games in sports as it involves winning, losing or drawing a game. But no club coach, players or fans will love the club to lose knowing the implications at the end of the season. Arsenal FC, Juventus and few others are clubs that have won their domestic leagues with an unbeaten run. But in recent times, it is rare for a club to play a specific number of games a season without losing one (1) or two (2) of the games.
Despite that losing one (1) or two (2) is inevitable in the game of football, some losses are infuriating or at times humiliating. For instance, Real Madrid is the club with the most win in the UEFA Champions League but lost by 2-1 to a Moldova club, Sheriff that is playing the competition for the first time in the history of the club. What an infuriating loss!
