AC Milan were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League last night. They were beaten 2-0 at San Siro by Arsenal. It was at the very same stage where Liverpool were knocked out by Benfica in 2006 as a defending Champion.
At this point Arsenal are on course to their 2nd final appearance in 3 seasons. They were the losing finalists against Barcelona in 2006.
As predicted earlier, Man Utd are also through to the quarterfinals defeating Lyon 1-0 at Old Trafford. Other teams through are Barcelona and Fenerbache.
Liverpool hosts West Ham United tonight in the BEPL.
While Chelsea face Olympiakos at Stamford Bridge. Roma will travel to Madrid to face Real Madrid while Schalke 04 will play against Porto in Portugal.
And I am hoping another Milan club will be eliminated next week.
This DVD has plenty of memory on it. It was definitely one of the best football matches in history of football. And it was also the first football match Izrin and I watched together although she made it clear from the beginning that she is backing Milan to win because she likes Filippo Inzaghi...what is up with girls with Italian footballers...sheesh. Anyhow throughout the whole match we did not talk much until Jerzy Dudek made that save against Andriy Shevchenko's spotkick.
This match means a lot to me personally and also as a Liverpool fan. Since that match, Izrin had adopted Liverpool as her favourite football team.
