After an incredible ending to the first set of semi-final matches, Manchester United knocked out Barcelona FC with an aggregate of 1-0. The two team’s battled tough throughout the two legs of the semi-finals but Manchester managed a 1-0 win in the second game which spelled ruins for Barcelona. I personally had chosen Manchester to beat Barcelona but was shocked to see Ronaldo not score throughout both games, especially with the chances he had.

Now the battle is between Liverpool FC and Chelsea FC, in the second set of semis. The two team’s battle today at 2:00PM in there second leg of the semi-final and one team will move on to play Manchester United in the finals of the UEFA champion’s league.The Liverpool coach seems adamant that his team has what it takes to beat Chelsea, even though Chelsea has been playing superb soccer right now. I think with the aggregate set at 1-1 leading into the match that it leaves it wide open for either team to win the match but I have a feeling Chelsea will move on to the finals. Chelsea beat Manchester last week and although it wasn’t a champion’s league match it still shows significance in the fact Chelsea can play on the level of Manchester. I don’t think Liverpool is deep enough with their roster yet. Torres is about the only star on the team and I don’t see him becoming the difference maker in today’s game.

I expect a close game between the two sides, but I will lay my money on Chelsea to win 2-1 in the match. Manchester and Chelsea would make an incredible final and if that’s the way it works out then fans are in for one of the best finals in recent years.
