Gus Johnson takes good things and makes them great. His level of excitement turns everything up a notch. I should make that statement about Gus Johnson in ALL CAPS, so you understand the loud volume of the situation. Gus Johnson MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER!
Next week, the UEFA Champions League takes center stage with the highly anticipated quarterfinal between struggling Barclays Premier League side Manchester United and recently crowned German champions Bayern Munich, live on Tuesday, April 1 (1:00 PM CST) on FOX Sports 1. Johnson is set to call the match alongside Fox Sports analyst and former Bundesliga player Eric Wynalda from Old Trafford.
This game features the team with the worst odds by far of winning the Champions League: United. Versus the overwhelming favorites.
Tuesday’s second quarterfinal commences almost simultaneously on FOX Sports 2 and FOX Soccer Plus with an all-Spanish affair, as Lionel Messi and Barcelona battle Atletico Madrid, who is in the quarterfinals for the first time in 17 years. The two clubs are separated by one point at the top of the domestic La Liga standings.
