Liverpool and Chelsea win !

European Soccer

Liverpool vs Real Madrid
Liverpool hosted once 'mighty' Real Madrid managed by Juan Ramos, the sacked manager of Tottenham Hotspurs. The Reds were playing as if they were possessed...that good! And R Madrid? Well, from what I saw they lacked so many things that were clearly displayed by the Reds...fighting spirit, pace, imagination, leadership both on and off the field, speed, self-belief and match fitness.
In the end they were hammered by a whopping 4-0 scoreline which could have been more.
The whole Liverpool team played well especially so was Gerard and Torres, who both scored.

Both of these games were telecast "Live" at the same time early on Wednesday. I watched them simultaneously at home.
Juventus vs Chelsea
The game was played in Turin ( unk Dicko has been there ), home of Juventus. Chelsea carried a one goal advantage into this 2nd leg. The Final score was a 2-2 draw. Overall it was 3-2 to Chelsea who are through to the next round.

After the loss, Claudio Raineri the Manager of Juventus and ex-Chelsea manager said he hoped the remaining 2 Italian teams...Roma and Inter Milan win their matches against Arsenal and Manchester Utd on Thursday ( Spore time).
