November 2, 2006

A Kaka hat-trick sees AC Milan five points clear on 10. The Italian side are almost through as second place Lille are beaten by Athens.

Kaka’s third goal is a cracker as the Brazilian does it all himself, firing a brilliant strike over the diving defender and just out of reach of the keeper, into the upper corner of the net.

GOLAZO! GOLAZO! GOLAZO!

7′ AC Milan – Kaka penalty

UEFA Will Investigate Barcelona v Chelsea

November 1, 2006

champions-league.jpgTuesday’s Champions League match between Barcelona and Chelsea is to be investigated by UEFA to decide what fines will be handed out.

The heated match saw ten yellow cards, six of which went to Chelsea. By UEFA rules, teams receiving five or more bookings are automatically fined.

Although both teams surrounded Italian referee Stefano Farina on several occasions, the worst incident took place when Ashley Cole was booked.

It appeared that Barcelona believed Cole’s yellow was his second, mistaking Frank Lampard’s earlier booking for Cole’s first yellow.

Other incidents included Barcelona manager Frank Rijkaard charging Farina at game’s end and Barcelona fans hurling objects at Chelsea players following the match.

Spartak Moscow 0 – 1 Inter Milan, Champions League Thriller in Freezing Temperatures

November 1, 2006

inter-milan-soccer-ball.gif
Spartak Moscow 0 – 1 Inter Milan

Tuesday 31.10.06

Match Summary:

A thrilling match in -2 C (28 F) temperatures as a first minute goal by Julio Cruz, from a Zlatan Ibrahimovic cross, holds up to move Inter to second with 6 points.

The Italian side showed signs of brilliance with some lovely passing, but Spartak dominated for long stretches.

A draw or better would have been a fair result for the Russian side as they will certainly rue missed opportunites. Not the least of which being a 78th minute Roman Shishkin strike from 40 yards that rocked the crossbar, dramatically sending chucks of ice raining down onto the goal line.

Chelsea Barcelona Champions League Clash Finishes 2 – 2

November 1, 2006

chelsea-soccer-ball.jpgDidier Drogba’s 92nd minute strike puts Barcelona on the verge of elimination as Chelsea draw the Spanish champions 2 – 2 at the Nou Camp.

It was a sloppy and contemptuous affair that saw 10 yellow cards and very little in the way of beautiful football. Even the managers seemed particularly hostile, with Jose Mourinho sliding on his knees in celebration of Chelses’s game-tying goal, and Frank Rijkaard charging referee Stefano Farina at game’s end.

Chelsea had dominated throughout, but were made to pay for their two glaring mistakes.

In the 3rd minute, Deco was left completely unmarked just outside the area and the Portuguese star showed just how ill-advised that can be, firing a lovely strike past Hilario for the early Barcelona lead.

Even though Chelsea had the better of the first half, they would not answer back until the 52nd when Frank Lampard chipped Victor Valdes from an impossible angle, just inches from the end-line, to make it even at 1 – 1.

But just 6 minutes later, the Chelsea defense again made a critical error. Khalid Boulahrouz, who had kept Ronaldinho in check for the better part of two matches, finally slipped up. When the Dutch defender overcommitted and missed a stab at stealing from Ronaldinho well out on the wing, the Brazilian superstar raced undefended toward goal and crossed neatly to Eidur Gudjohnsen who tapped home what looked to be the winner.

Chelsea began to press and seemed destined to score in the final ten minutes, but both Michael Ballack and Arjen Robben missed gilt-edged chances that would have salvaged a draw.

Just when it seemed they were about to give in, the Blues appeared to be lifted when beleaguered referee Farina signaled five minutes of added time. The English champions would only need two.

Michael Essien raced from his own half and lofted a brilliant ball to John Terry on the far post. The Chelsea captain headed across to Didier Drogba who promptly chested down past Rafael Marquez and fired a low left-footed strike back across Valdes as the visitor’s bench erupted.

The final 2 – 2 scoreline spells frustration for Barcelona who are still unable to defeat Chelsea when both teams play with eleven.

The draw also leaves Barca in trouble in Group A as Werder Bremen jumped to second with a 3 – 0 pasting of Levski Sofia. A 5th of December showdown between the La Liga champions and Bremen will possibly see Barca needing a win to advance.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are well in control of their destiny, as one more draw or better will see them through to the knockout stages.
