Champions League, Quarter Final, Part Two

    Tuesday and Wednesday was possibly the most exciting Champions League game days I have ever seen. PSG traveled to play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for the second leg with a three to one lead on aggregate. Chelsea opened the scoring with an Andre Schürrle goal in the 32nd minute. PSG seemed like they would hold on, but in the 87th minute Demba Ba managed to score on the floor in a scramble for the ball. That goal put Chelsea ahead on aggregate because Chelsea had then scored more away goals. Now Chelsea will face Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals. Real Madrid (without Ronaldo) headed to Germany to face Dortmund with a 3-0 lead on aggregate. In the 17th minute Di Maria missed a penalty. Then shortly after Marco Reus scored to put Dortmund in the lead. To make matters worse Real let i another Marco Reus goal in the 37th minute. Strangely, Dortmund never did score another goal in the second half and Real won 3-2 on aggregate. Bayern Munich hosted Manchester United at the Allianz Arena for the second leg of the quarter finals. Man United who had tied Bayern in the first leg 1-1 were confident that they could pull off a huge win. There hopes looked possible when Patrice Evra scored in the 57th minute, but two minutes later Mario Mandzucich drew the game level. Then Man U’s hopes were dashed when Thomas Müller and Arjen Robben made it 3-1 (4-2 on aggregate) earning Bayern a spot in the semi finals. Over in Spain Barcelona played Atletico Madrid in a vital game. Atletico had tied Barca 1-1 in the first leg and were looking to move on to the semis. They rattled the post many times, but the only goal in the game came from a Koke volley in the 5th minute (game ended 2-1 on aggregate). Atletico Madrid are headed to the first semi finals in forty years. The semi finals will be played next week on Tuesday and Wednesday and make sure you watch for my post.

p.s. Sorry my post is a bit late. I’ve been playing in my own soccer games over the weekend and had practice on weekdays.
