Champions League Match Day 5 Results

steven-gerrard-the-saviourBordeaux 1 – Chelsea 1: Chelsea strode out negatively, seeming more content to tackle chestily than attack, and it was to their detriment.  Anelka put them ahead but Diarra’s wonderful header evened the score.  If Chelsea do not beat Cluj, they could drop to the UEFA Cup.

CFR Cluj 1 – Roma 3: Matteo Brighi was hot, and it had nothing to do with his effeminate sweater.  His two goals and a third from Totti gave Roma a comfortable victory.  One point clear in Group A, Roma advance with a draw.

Inter Milan 0 – Panathinaikos 1: Mourinho played narrow, suffocating the midfield.  Panathinaikos stole a second half goal and withstood the barrage.  Inter move forward, but unimpressively.  The Greeks look likely to do the same.

Anorthosis Famagusta 2 – Werder Bremen 2: The Germans fought off two second half deficits, but could not get the required win to stay in the tournament.  The draw hurts Anorthosis, who must now win in Greece to move on to the knockout stages.

Liverpool 1 – Marseille 0: Steven Gerrard celebrated his tenth anniversary in fitting fashion, a sub-par performance punctuated with a critical goal.  Marseille may have had the better day, but Liverpool win and move through.

Atletico Madrid 2 – PSV Eindhoven 1: There was a party at the Vicente Calderon, but no one else was invited.  In front of the empty stadium, Simão and Maxi Rodriguez put the Spanish side ahead, the prolific Danny Koevermans could only retort with one.  Atletico advance.

Sporting Lisbon 2 – Barcelona 5: Barcelona scored five goals with four shots on target, thanks  to a Sporting back four conceding two own goals and a penalty.  There was no crying for Bojan Krkic, whose late penalty conversion will hopefully help his confidence.

Shakhtar Donetsk 5 – FC Basel 0: Shakhtar showed Ukraine is not weak, led by Brazilian Jadson’s hat trick.  It was too late for this endeavor, but they secured the UEFA Cup parachute.
