Ronaldo has scored in the first half for manu in Rome 1 - 0

United have men forward again, and Rooney spreads the ball out to Scholes who chips a cross back in FOR CRISTIANO RONALDO TO HEAD IN!!!

He attacked that cross with real power to power the ball past Doni!38' United have men forward as Rooney holds the ball up for Scholes, who loses possession and Roma can break! Ferdinand beats Vucinic to the long ball forward and heads calmly back to Van der Sar.

The final whistle goes, and Manchester United complete an awesome European display that surely sees them through to the semi-finals.

Baada ya mechi za jana inaelekea Baca na ManU wataingia semi. Na kupredict Liva na the Bluz wataingia semi na wao.
Then ManU atamtoa Baca na The Bluz wataitaoa Liva ..... then final itakukua Man & Chelsea.
Anyone with a disputed prediction?

Its all over at the Emirates Arsenal and Liverpool will square again at Merseyside.
Advantage Liverpool with an away goal. But before that they must play again at the Emirates this Saturday for the Premiership.

Chelsea lost 2 - 1 all to play for at Stamford Bridge.

We Kana-kansungu acha mapenzi sasa refa amefanya nini wakati mnaingiza mchezaji wenu akaokoe magoli baada ya kufunga!!
Mtu yoyote ambaye asieyujua kwamba Hleb alipoangushwa na Kuyt ndani ya box ilikua ni penati atakuwa hajui sheria za mpira.Refa alifanya makosa kwenye hili kwa kuwa alikuwa karibu sana na eneo la tukio.

Liverpool 4-2 Arsenal (agg 5-3)
By Andrew McKenzie

Liverpool set up a Champions League semi-final with Chelsea after a stunning late win over Arsenal. Abou Diaby put Arsenal into an early lead but Sami Hyypia lost Phillipe Senderos to head an equaliser. Fernando Torres looked to have settled the tie when he turned and drilled into the top corner, only for Emmanuel Adebayor to level.

But Kolo Toure fouled Ryan Babel and Gerrard held his nerve from the spot, before Babel broke to add a fourth. It was an extraordinary end to yet another wonderful European tie at Anfield. The two sides, who have faced each other three times in six days, saved their best for last in a game that was full of drama from start to finish.

Both teams played as if their season was on the line and it led to a pulsating cup tie. Arsenal looked like they had a new lease of life from the side that started the 1-1 draw at the weekend and it was little surprise when they went in front through Diaby, on his return to the side.

He burst into the box to get on the end of Hleb's pass and drove in a low shot that Pepe Reina could only help into the net. The goal seemed to energise Arsenal further and it was Liverpool who were beginning to look jaded. But the Gunners were made to pay after half an hour when Senderos was caught flat footed and Hyypia had the freedom of the Anfield penalty box to head past Cesc Fabregas and in off the post.

It was Liverpool's turn to have the upper hand and they went ahead with a superb strike from Torres. Rafa Benitez's decision to partner Peter Crouch with Torres had looked like a tactical blunder at the start, but it was a pairing that combined for their second goal. Crouch's flick on was latched onto by Torres, who turned and shot in an instant to send the Kop into delirium.

Adebayor was just off target with a desperate lunge from Emmanuel Eboue's cross but Arsenal increasingly looked dead on the ropes. However, Theo Walcott's introduction revitalised their hopes and he ran from inside his own half and into Liverpool's box before squaring for Adebayor to tap in.

But Liverpool once again showed their resilience and immediately went down the other end, where substitute Babel was adjudged to have been brought down by Toure. Gerrard made no mistake from the spot, firing into the top corner with just four minutes left on the clock. An Arsenal goal at that stage would have been enough to send them through on away goals.

But as they threw men forward Babel raced clear to slot home a fourth - and perhaps ease the pain of a contentious penalty decision. It was a cruel exit for Arsenal but there was no denying it was Liverpool's night.

Liverpool : Reina, Carragher, Skrtel, Hyypia, Aurelio, Gerrard, Alonso, Mascherano, Kuyt, Torres, Crouch. Subs: Itandje, Riise, Voronin, Benayoun, Arbeloa, Babel, Lucas.

Arsenal : Almunia, Toure, Gallas, Senderos, Clichy, Eboue, Flamini, Fabregas, Diaby, Hleb, Adebayor. Subs: Lehmann, Van Persie, Song Billong, Silva, Bendtner, Justin Hoyte, Walcott.
Referee : Peter Frojdfeldt (Sweden)

SPOT OF BOTHER ... Cristiano Ronaldo cannot believe his penalty miss

Henry only got 10 minutes to prove his worthy

CRISTIANO RONALDO blew Manchester United's big chance to put one foot in the Champions League final. The Red Devils ace crashed his early penalty against the post at the Nou Camp. And the miss could prove costly as United were held to a goalless draw in the semi-final first leg ahead of Tuesday's rematch at Old Trafford.

United were hit by a blow leading up to kick-off when Nemanja Vidic pulled out after being rushed to hospital with a stomach complaint. And they then squandered a great chance to take the lead after just three minutes when Gabriel Milito handled inside the penalty area. Ronaldo stepped up for his 39th goal of the season but sidefooted his effort against the outside of the post to the delight of the home fans.

After the initial threat, Barca cranked up the pressure on United and dominated the opening half. Yet, Ronaldo felt he should have had a second penalty in the 30th minute when he was bundled over by Rafael Marquez but referee Massimo Busacca waved it away. Samuel Eto'o rattled in a shot after 34 minutes but Wes Brown made a vital block.

United keeper Edwin van der Sar did well to tip over Gianluca Zambrotta's shot at the start of the second half. Eto'o then sent his effort into the side-netting, while Deco tested Van der Sar with a low drive. Xavi was next to try his luck from 20 yards but the Red Devils No1 was again equal to the effort.
Barcelona continued to be frustrated as they desperately attempted to break the deadlock.

Substitute Thierry Henry went close with two long-range strikes late on but United held on for the draw. Old Trafford will be rocking in just six days.
