Liverpool v/s Barcelona

Barcelona was in a Do/Die situation; the Defending Champions had to win this match by atleast 2 goals. The atmosphere was electrifying(as usual), with all Liverpool fans singing for their team coz they knew they(Liverpool) were having the upper hand in the match. After kick-off there was no stopping Liverpool they were all over Barca & their attack was spearheaded by Risse (yes, the Liverpool defender); 3 times he came close to scoring a goal, 2 times of which he was denied by the Crossbar. Valdes(Barca Goal-Keeper) was having a real tough time. 30 minutes into the game & The Reds had 9 shots on Goal & Barca had 0 (very unlike Barca) . The only saving grace from Barca was Messi, he was the one who was running around trying to create chances for Barca to score. The score remained 0-0 till half time, with Liverpool dominating the first half.
In the Second half Barca looked more composed & started passing the ball
around quite nicely. Ronaldinho also came close to scoring, but again was denied by the WoodWork. In the end it was Barca who drew first blood & the goal scorer was none other than Former Chelsea striker Gudjohnsen . He scored within few minutes of his substitution. In the end Braca tried to put Liverpool under a lot of pressure, but they were a tough nut to crack tht easily. Though Barca won the match, they were knocked out of Champions league on the basis Away goals.

Basically Braca didn’t look/play like the Defending Champs. For me there was only one Man-of-the-Match & tht was

The Goal-Post… πŸ˜€ , coz it blocked 4 sure goals…

Amidst all this action, i suddenly happened to notice a small marquee @ the bottom of my TV screen & my heart almost skipped a beat. They were showing scores from other Live Champions League matches. The score tht made me fall of my bed was of the match between Chelsea & F.C. Porto. I think it was in the 33rd minute tht i first took notice of the live score update & the score-line was Chelsea 0 – 1 F.C.Porto(noname.java 15). The score remained tht way until half-time. The marquee re-appeared after a period of 10 mins. When it appeared @ around th 55th minute of the match, my heartbeat was back to normal, coz now the scoreline was (Robben 48)Chelsea 1 – 1 F.C. Porto (noname.java 15). I had to wait till the 85th minute to get my lost smile back πŸ™‚ , yes Chelsea had taken the lead thanks to Ballack. The scoreline remained tht way till the end. i.e. Chelsea 2 – 1 F.C. Porto

Bayern Munich v/s Real Madrid
I also happened to see the Fastest Goal in UCL History (tht too Live, obviously on T.V.) by Makkay from Bayern Munich… πŸ™‚
Yes, Real Madrid proved again tht they are no longer a Champion Squad & are just a bunch of ppl playing together, coz they get paid(heavily) for doing tht. Eventually Bayern went on to win the match on the Basis of Away Goals. Final score was Bayern Munich 2 – 1 Real Madrid

    I saw neither of the matches live but caught up with the repeats and the highlights. And, seriously the number of times the ball hit the wood work was just amazing. It would been really sad for a Liverpool fan viewing the match. Although, the result eventually turns out in their favour, but Liverpool also deserved to win this match.

    They did deserve to win… but Barca didn’t give them a good fight…
    Risse looked like man on a mission…

    So finally 3 EPL teams go into the Quarters… πŸ™‚
