is an adjective used to describe a match in which one team is much better than the other. In this case, we can say ‘there is only one side in it’. There is no balance between the teams; one is much stronger than the other. A one-sided game
means that one team is much better than the other. We often use the noun ‘affair’ with this adjective, making the phrase, a one-sided affair. Using this phrase often means you think the game was boring, as there was no competition or excitement. Also, one-way traffic
is when one team constantly attacks while the other is out of their depth
- Example: Argentina easily won the match in a one-sided affair.
- Example: The Champions League final of 1994 was very one-sided with AC Milan winning 4-0 against Barcelona
