UEFA Champions League Semi-Final 1st Leg: Liverpool vs Chelsea
(image from soccernet.com)
First leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals between the 2 Premier League giants. Liverpool practically dominated the entire match, waves after waves of attacks. Chelsea defended nervously & failed to create any decent scoring chances. Drogba was denied a penalty when Carragher's missed sliding tackle brought down the Chelsea striker instead. Kuyt went on to score 2 minutes before half time as a result of Makelele's defensive error.
In the second half, Riise came on to replace the injured Aurelio. The Blues were practically defending the whole time, their attacks did little to threaten Reina's goal. Then in the very last few seconds of injury time, Riise's turned a harmless cross into an extremely unlucky own goal, giving Chelsea the precious away goal. Well, it's not the first time Riise scored an own goal this year. Looks like Chelsea is going to Moscow~ & I can't wait to watch tomorrow's Barca vs ManU match!!
Final score: Liverpool 1 - 1 Chelsea
