Benfica 3-1 PSV (1st Leg)
45' Miccoli

The game was very dull in the first half no chances for either team. But then something sparked in the Benfica offence and lead to a goal by Miccoli. Shortly after the beginning of the 2nd half Mantorras decided he was going to put Benfica up 2-0 and then Robert scoring a header of a corner kick put the icing on the cake. In the dying minutes of the game Beasley scores a header to get PSV one away goal which might help them

Celtic 2-0 Arsenal
Celtic playing this one away with a big dissadvantage having conceded a goal away and losing it 1-0. This game, Celtic had to make sure to come out guns blazing and scoring early. That is just what they did. Thompson was put thru on the far left flank and his speed allowed him to cut it inside and put Celtic up just after 11 minutes. Celtic was now confident and they started passing it around and after just 4 minutes, Zurawski found the net with a simple finish. Then 20 minutes from time, Arsenal got an unclear PK. It was unclear even what it was for, there was no tackle whatsoever. But, the Celtic keeper showed off his ability and guessed right with the combination of streching far right to block it and it was cleared. Celtic then just played possession and was happy to make it to the semi-finals where they will either face Chelsea or Lyon.

Benfica (5) 2-0 (1) PSV
10' 70' Nuno Gomes

Well the game started of with Benfica just nocking the ball around very nicely and then a cross onto Nuno Gomes's head ended up in the back of the net. Benficas manager decided to play counter attack and it showed right there it was a good decision. PSV not really having any chances were very dull and gave up a P.K which Nuno Gomes finished. Benfica will be either playing Bayern or Inter

And the results are in from the other games and here are the semi-final matches

Celtic vs Chelsea
Inter vs Benfica

Celtic 1-0 Chelsea
23' Nakamura
Celtic came out on a high note into this one. They started out pretty good by playing it around in Chelsea's half and creating one or two decent chances. On the other side of the pitch, Chelsea looked to be more dangerous and created 2 clear-cut chances. Celtic were perhaps a little lucky not to concede a couple. Celtic then scored. Nakamura played it to Hartson and Hartson played it right back into Nakamura's path and he shot it very nicely to put Celtic up. The rest of the game was all Celtic. They created 4 100% chances, but didn't capitalize and it might come back to bite them in the ass. It will be a battle at Chelsea's home.

Benfica 0-0 Inter (1st leg)
Well not much to say to the game the game was very dull. Not many chances were created and if there were chances it was Benfica. Benficas manager is dissapointed because this gives inter a very good chance since they did not concede a away goal. But after interviewing the players they say that they are ready to come out strong and score early in the game to win the game and move to the finals. Well Benfica has to play a good game and canot concede a goal vs inter because the game is at home. The manager added a few words " IF we score one goal it is over we are going to the finals ".

Celtic 3-1 Chelsea
37' Drogba
40' Lennon
45' Zurawski

Celtic vs Benfica THE FINALS
Well, this game started out in Benfica's favor. They totally dominated the first half. They had quiet a few chances through Mantorras, but failed to capitalize. It was scoreless in the first half. Then, in the second, Celtic picked it up just a bit and went on attack for a change. They created one good opportunity through Nakamura, but failed to score. Then finally Nakamura put it away after some good playing around and Celtic was up 1-0. After that, both teams found it hard to create any chances and Celtic were Champions.
