This week’s English for football phrase is ‘there is so much at stake‘. At stake means to be at issue, to be at risk, or to be the important topic. When there is so much at stake, the result or outcome is very important and will have an affect on the future. This phrase is used in football to describe a match which is particularly important. For example, perhaps a win will mean a team avoids relegation, or a point means the team can progress to the Champions League and the money that that competition brings. On Wednesday, there was so much at stake when Manchester City played Tottenham. The winner would be in the Champions League next year.
