Stay Tuned…

Make sure you check back here at halftime, and again at full-time, of today’s Champions League semifinal first leg at Anfield. As I did in both games of the Liverpool-Arsenal tie, I’ll have my halftime and post-match thoughts for you to undoubtedly pick apart.

For those of you want to see attractive, free-flowing soccer, this isn’t the game for you. It’s going to be a grind-it-out, slow-moving affair, with the winner likely only needing one goal to prevail.

My prediction: Liverpool-1, Chelsea-0, with a late goal from Fernando Torres the only thing separating the two sides. In next Wednesday’s return leg at Stamford Bridge, I’ve got a 1-1 draw, which, of course, would be enough for Liverpool to advance to their third Champions League final in four years.
