Chelsea And Barcelona to meet in the Semi Final of the Champions League

I had a feeling that the game between Chelsea and Liverpool will be a close one but i certainly didn’t expect it to end 4 – 4. It is a bit hard to see Chelsea and Liverpool concede 4 goals in a single match. Although most of the goals were because of errors, it did provide very much entertainment. Liverpool were without Steven Gerrard but they almost took the game to Chelsea when they scored those two quick first half goals and took a lead of 2 – 0 at half time.

It took an angry Hiddink to motivate Chelsea at half time and they responded after that by scoring the first goal thanks to a mistake by Pepe Reina and then Alex scored a thunderous free kick that could have been the best goal of the match to level the game 2 – 2. It looked the game might finish that way but there was some excitement left for the end too. Chelsea took the lead after a Frank Lampard strike but Liverpool responded quickly through a deflected Lucas goal and a headed goal by Dirk Kuyt. Liverpool were leading 4 – 3 with seven minutes remaining and needed one more goal to win the tie but Chelsea killed off the game after a Lampard strike.

The other match between Bayern and Barcelona was almost over after the first leg which Barcelona won 4 – 0. Bayern tried some attacking play and went close early on but they couldn’t find the break through. They eventually scored when Ribery rounded Victor Valdes but Barcelona soon equalized and they will meet Chelsea in the Semi final.

It looks like we might have another classic semifinal between Barcelona and Chelsea. Barcelona are in a superb form and they have a gem of a player in Lionel Messi. If Chelsea don’t improve there defense, they might have the same fate as Bayern.
