Liverpool face tough champions league clash!!!!!!
April 23, 2007 4:13am CST
It is a clash of the two biggest EPL clubs, Two clubs dat have had a history & we r going to relive it again!!!!!!!!!! Two years these two giants met where chelsea were beaten up by liverpool - & then liverpool went on to win the champions league against AC Milan. History might repeat itself again LIVERPOOL vs AC MILAN (who knows in d final). But this time Liverpool face a more, determinat more hungrier & a more stronger Chelsea (attacking line) than it has faced.Stamford Bridge has been their Fort & have been undefeated in 40 odd matches. Chelsea r chasing four titles this time & they will give this oppurtunity everything they have got. Can Liverpool finally stop the blues ??????????

Well, considering the way that Chelsea failed to capitalise on Manchester United dropping points at the weekend, it was not a great performance for the Blues against Newcastle. I would say then that Liverpool have the better chance in the Champions League Semi Final. The reds are the in form team, and Dirk Kuyt seems to be hitting his best form after his week gave birth to their child, I think he will be firing on all cylinders, really up for it for the match at Stamford Bridge. There is every chance, a lot of people are suggesting a Man Utd Chelsea final, but if form continues as it is, then it will be Ac Milan v Liverpool for a rematch of the 2005 final.

I agree on the loss on sunday was big.......but as we have know n chelsea have been good when it comes to crunh situations. Also keeping in time Kise mourinho is desperate to win champions league with chelsea & the players r equally hungry. It is a big heartbreak to know dat sheva n robben will not feature but joe cole's comeback will boost their morale. i expect a chelsea win at stamford & a liverpool win at anfield. will go down to penalties :)

UEFA Champion league ,that is a league for champion from any country in euro. When a team can still survive untill semi final on champion league we can say that the team is very strong and powerfull on this earth not just in euro. Liverpool , ac milan ,chelsea ,and manchester united have a same opportunity to be a champion from any champion. But a team must be have a prepare and made some strategy to be a winner. Liverpool had a solid back line and many creative midfielder,steven gerard still the brain of this team.Xabi alonso as a defense midfielder has a experince too.In striker position peter crouch is tall ,good to play in a long ball from side ,and many winger active to give a crossing from this line.Kuyt is very clever and creative ,we can say that this team on level 1 in foot ball. What about AC milan ? They have a same opportunity too ..but after shevchenko left ac milan ,this team have a big problem in striker position,inzaghi,gilardino can play as good as sheva play.But kaka make this hole can handle by him. But i prefer liverpool will go to next phase ..The final phase.

well definately Liverpool can go through no doubt about that..........but its too close to call. Chelsea posses a kind of attack that can destroy the best defences & if drogba comes gud.....we r in for a real treat. Gerrard & Lampard bothr equally instrumental in the midfield & will play a big role in who qualifies. Ronaldo's entry into AC milan is a clever one & we will cwhat he will bring against a defensively vulnerable Man U

I think the match against newcastle was more decided by fatigue as you could see chelsea put out a weakened side and were looking tired .But they have done this within mind the champions league clash so i expect a fierce fight this time around.Jose mourinho will do all that he can to inspire the blues.Although we all know rafa benitez is an expert tactician and it will eventually come down to Jose vs Rafa
