Historic Win For Fenerbahce, Arsenal and Liverpool Draw!

One more exciting UEFA Champions League matchday behind us. Yesterday we say Manchester United beat Roma 2:0 and Barcelona bearing Schalke 1:0.

Today's matches were even more exciting than yesterday's. Arsenal took on Liverpool on the Emirates Stadium today. Arsenal took the lead in the 23rd minute from a well taken corner and Adebayor headed it in the goal with style. Only 3 minutes later Liverpool managed to equalize with Dirk Kuyt's goal. Afterwards, Arsenal was attacking through out the whole match but were not able to score. Arsenal had about 70% ball possession. Liverpool will be going home with a slight advantage as these two will face off for a second leg in Liverpool.

Another, more exciting match today took place in Istanbul, Turkey as Fenerbahce hosted Chelsea. Chelsea were the first team on board thanks to an own goal (Deivid). At half time the score was still 1:0 in Chelsea's favor. Fenerbahce made a few changes early in the second half including Kazim Kazim, who scored the equalizer in the 64th minute. In the 80th minute a miracle. The man that scored the own goal (Deivic), scores a beautiful goal from 30 yards beating Cuducini. The fans went ballistic, and 60,000 fans made it sound as if 600,000 fans were there at that moment. Fenerbahce won all of their home games in the Champions League this year including: Inter Milan, PSV, CSKA Moscow, Sevilla and now Chelsea. Which is quite an accomplishment. Chelsea will try to fix their mistakes next week in London and 1:0 win would take Chelsea through to the next round. Or will Fenerbahce make history.
