The draw for the quarter finals of the Champions league has been made and guess what… Liverpool are going to play Chelsea AGAIN. The is the fifth time in a row we have drawn Chelsea in the Champions league. Can’t we have someone different for a change? I was hoping to draw Porto or Villarreal but it looks like luck is on Manchester United’s side again as they have gotten a relatively easy draw against Porto and Arsenal have Villarreal. The other tie sees Barcelona take on Bayern Munich.

Chelsea v Liverpool - UEFA Champions League Semi Final

If we are to win the Champions League this season it is not going to be easy! If we get passed Chelsea we will face the winner of the Barcelona – Bayern tie.

Looking at the Chelsea tie, we will play the first leg at Home, which is never the best situation. I was hoping we would play the second leg at Home but I guess we have to love with it. We have to make sure we beat Chelsea at home and not allow them to score an away goal. Atleast if we get through, the semi final first leg will be away and the second leg at home.

It is also great that UEFA has made the second leg of the Chelsea tie to be played on April 14 and not the 15th when we commemorate the Hillsbrough Disaster.
