chmps.JPGLiverpool outperform themselves once again and fly by Chelsea in the Champions League’s semi final just like they did two years ago when they went on to take the title. Liverpool went a goal ahead early in the first half via Daniel Agger. Both teams then held on and sent the tie into an exhilarating penalty shoot out which the Reds won 4 to 1. The game was a tense one with Liverpool fully in control especially in the first half. After the break both teams were scared to open up fully and the status quo remained unchained until the spot kicks, of which the hero was Pepe Reina saving 2 out of Chelsea’s 3 attempts.

Liverpool contained Chelsea well especially dangerous Didier Drogba who seemed at the defenders’ mercy. The balance between attack-defense was in the latter’s favor unexpectedly but again it worked wonders for Benitez against arch rival Mourinho; who’s side seemed tired and helpless against the Reds! A difficult match to analyze, I’ll just stop at noting that Liverpool are the best side in England on a good day, they just need a few more strikers up front and more consistency to get to the coveted Premiership title any time soon!
