However, this time they did get to their objective, and they are through to the Champions League quarters at the expense of the defending champions. With a defensive minded lineup, Benitez once again showed what a terrific defensive job the Reds could put on. It was total containment! The Catalans did not breathe until the last 15 minutes or so when they got the goal! Putting all my admiration of the performance aside, I have to voice my concern once again about the lack of attacking firepower! Liverpool’s strikers once again ceased to cause any major trouble in the visitor’s box. A defender and a defensive midfielder were the two who hit the Catalan woodwork. I can go on and on! I’ll just wait until the summer transfer window opens to see if Misters Hicks and Gillett are going to cash in on a major striker, the only path to winning ways!  

Elsewhere, Valencia drew 0-0 at home with Inter to make it through, Chelsea beat Porto 2-1 in London to advance as well, and finally, the surprise of the evening, Roma won away 2-0 against title favorites (in my opinion at least) Lyon to thwart the French’s hopes of a championship title once again.
