Its Chelsea Liverpool again

The outcome of games played on Tuesday saw Chelsea pitted against Liverpool once again in the semifinals of the Champions League. Chelsea had a task on their hands as they took on Fenerbahce at Stamford Bridge as they had lost 2-1 in the first leg at Turkey, but they were never going to to let that happen again and they had also the home crowd behind them and they took an early lead through Ballack and Lampard made sure they go into the semis by getting the second but not before the Turks had given them some scare in front of goal.

1-0 Ballack

2-0 Lampard

And the match of the day was at Anfield, third and final match of the trilogy between Arsenal and Liverpool. Both the earlier matches had ended in draws and Liverpool knew they could advance with a scoreless draw while Arsenal knew they had to score to stand any chance of advancing. Arsenal started off brilliantly and went ahead through Abu Diaby in the 13 minute but Hypia equalised for the Reds from a corner.

And in the second half it was the irrepressible Torres again for Liverpool who scored in the 69th minute and then it was those two frantic minutes, Walcott sprinted past the Liverpool players and burst into the box and set up Adebayor's equaliser and just when the dance movements of the Togo star had ended Liverpool had a controversial penalty for a foul by Toure on Babel. Gerrard slammed it in to give the lead back to Liverpool. And Babel put the finishing touches on the game by scoring the fourth.

Rafa would relish another Champions League match against Premier League opposition as he had already seen off one team. And it would be the second time the teams will be meeting in the Semifinals in as many years and who would bet against the Spaniard from taking his team to Moscow!!!!!!!!!!
