Sunday was a weird matchday, one in the long lists of such seen through this tournament. It was supposed to be an exemplary showcase of two rivalries. One that has woven itself intriguingly well as concerns results in such high-profile clashes, and the other, taking merit from a political-cum-historical debate lending much colour to the field of play. As much as the two games promised a stellar show, they both ended in anti-climatic one-sided affairs.
