All of you I'm sure have been watching the Champions League very meticulously thus far, and it has already given us some amazing games and fantastic finishes that fans will remember for ages.
The purpose of this new group is to keep soccer fans updated with perhaps the most competitive and thrilling tournament in the world. The tournament where the soccer Champion of Europe is determined, rightfully named the Champions League.
Believe it or not, football fans, we've already reached the semi-final stage of the Champions League. The remaining teams, Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Barcelona, FC Schalke, Fernerbahce, and Roma, are all fierce competitors that have a deep desire to win the title. All have fought hard against difficult teams to reach this stage of the premier soccer tournament in Europe, and today the pairings of the semi-final were drawn. The matches read as:
Manchester United vs Roma
Liverpool vs Arsenal
Chelsea vs Fernerbahce
Barcelona vs Schalke
In my mind, these pairings, especially Liverpool vs Arsenal, should turn out to be very exciting, maybe even magical, when the teams meet in the first leg on April 1 and 2 and the second April 8 and 9. These games will be here quicker than we know it, and although my beloved Celtic are no longer in the tournament, I'm still very excited about this semi-final draw, and these upcoming European Nights should turn out to be unforgettable for many.
