The Champions League semi-final match between these two modern era rivals was full of drama. The 1st leg ended with 1-1.
The Reds seemed to be in the driving seat in reaching the final in Moscow, but somehow thunder strike at the last 30 seconds of added time. John Arne Riise who substituted Fabio Aurelio looked really out of shape from the moment he came on. I can only remember two special occasions when he was on the field. The first one being the long range speculative tame shot, and the second one was the own goal itself.
Why can’t Riise use his leg instead of head to clear the ball ? It looked very fishy here. Is he helping Roman’s army en route to Moscow ? Is Roman trying to pull all his resources just to make sure his team appear in the Moscow stadium ? Perhaps only God can help to put Liverpool back into the final as the Blues is gaining a slight advantage with the return leg looming at Stamford Bridge. Hope that justice will prevail.
