Transcript of the show
DF: You’re listening to Languagecaster’s football-language podcast. Hello everyone, my name is Damian and I’m here in a grey but dry London and of course we are looking forward to a huge weekend – actually a week of football fixtures as there are games on every day from Saturday until Thursday this week: The FA Cup semi-finals, el clasico, the Old Firm derby, and huge games at the top and bottom of the Premier League, including a Manchester derby. Now, down the line should be Damon in Tokyo. Damon, how are you doing?
DB: Hello Damian, I’m well, despite the grey skies today in Tokyo. I hope you’re well and enjoying the football. What did you think of the Champions League semi-final draw?
DF: Well, in some sense I wanted Atlético to avoid Real but I suppose it’s another chance for Simeone’s men to gain some kind of revenge for two recent final defeats against their city rivals. Juventus must be favourites for the other semi-final against Monaco though I have seen a lot of the French side recently and they score goals
