Champions League: Semi-final Abril 25, 2007

Chelsea without Essien saw Obi Mikel in great plan. Chelsea played better at the first time and Reina at 7′ with an excellent save avoided the goal by Lampard. However, Joe Cole scored after centre of Drogba on the right who overpassed Daniel Agger. The result was fair at the end of the first half.
The restart of the game showed a Liverpool more interested in attacking and it was the turn of Petr Čech (Chelsea) to make a great save after a kick by Gérrard. At 53′ Croush entered into the game (Bellamy out) in an attempt to put more problems in defensive Chelsea’s area

With Kalou in game (Chevchenko out 76′) Mascherano was cautioned by the referee at 77′ after a fault to avoid a dangerous attack

Last minutes Chelsea looked for a second goal and Drogba was close with a header after a corner, but the result is fair. So, Chelsea will take a slender 1-0 advantage with them when the two sides meet in the second leg at Anfield next Tuesday. Mourinho probably is satisfied with this advantage because they didn’t suffer any goal tonight and that can be a precious advantage.

The referree Markus Merk was well but Xabi Alonso at 24′ deserved to be caucioned with a yellow card.
