For the first time ever it will be two English sides playing for the UEFA Champions League Title.  Manchester United booked pasage by dispatching Barcelona and Chelsea needed extra time to put away Liverpool this week.  The final is May 21st in Moscow.

Manchester United faced a stiff test from Spanish giants Barcelona in their semifinal matchup.  A scoreless draw in Spain left Man U coming home feeling confident.  A first half goal from Paul Scholes would stand up as Manchester advanced.

Chelsea had a much tougher time with Liverpool.  Liverpool looked to have the upper hand as the first leg was at home and they had a lead thanks to Dirk Kuyt heading into injury time.  The home crowd was stunned though as in the last minute John Arne Riise accidentally headed a ball into his own net to leave the match 1-1 heading to Chelsea.  The second leg was lively and exciting as Chelsea grabbed a halftime lead through star Didier Drogba.  Liverpool would pull even in the 2nd half though as Fernando Torres equalized.  The match went to extra time where Chelsea took control thru a penalty kick from Frank Lampard and a goal from Drogba.   Ryan Babel would pull the match to within 3-2, but Liverpool were unable to get the last goal they needed and Chelsea moves on.
