Champions League Semi Finals.

Chelsea scored a last minute of injury time equaliser to keep give themselves a huge advantage going into the second leg of the Champions League Semi Finals against Liverpool. That crucial away goal was actually an own goal from Liverpool's John Arne Riise.

The Norwegian International left back looked absolutely devastated when he headed into his own net from a corner. Dirk Kuyt had put the home side ahead just before the end of the first half.

It had looked as if the match was theirs for the taking as they came out in the second half in an attacking mood.

Slowly Avram Grant's team got themselves back in it, and when the four minutes of injury time were almost up, Liverpool thought they would be home and dry with the advantage for the second leg.

Now they must go ahead and get at least a goal, if they have any hope of meeting the winners of the other semi final - Manchester United v Barcelona, in the final.

Liverpool have not scored at Stamford Bridge in 8 years. The size of the task will not be lost on their supporters, of which I am one.

to be continued.
