    Vela starting for Arsenal in the Champions today!

  2. rory says:

    Liverpool is already up 1-0. Life is full of disappointments, isn’t it?

  3. BARCELONA 2-0!! Pedrito just scored Barca’s second on a beautiful sequence. No Messi? No Ibrahimovic? No problem for Barcelona.

  4. Jacob A. says:

    Barca up 2-0 in the 26th

  5. Texar says:

    barcelona is really amazing, they have so many good players to back up the star players. It’s just crazy

  6. I said it! says:

  9. ... says:

    Arsenal 1-0 courtesy of Nasri

  10. ericJ says:

    all of the streams are dead or not working! LAME

  11. Chris in Belfast says:

    agreed.

    Everyone over here’s watching Liverpool.

  12. ... says:

    Arsenal 2-0, beautiful shot from Denilson

    halftime now

  13. afc says:

    2-0 to Arsenal. An amazing last minute strike by Denilson to end the first half!

  14. ... says:

    link to stream.rtl.nl

    chose windows media player

    it’s working fine for me and the picture isn’t bad. it’s in french though.

  15. ericJ says:

    Brilliant, thank you for the link!

  16. Mig22 says:

    It’s fine, let Liverpool win and still get eliminated by a Fiorentina win. That will salve my pain over Barca advancing.

  17. Mig22 says:

    Oh, a final nail in Rangers coffin would be good too. The quality of football in the knockout rounds goes up if there are no Scottish teams there. Bad news for Edu if he ever recovers and Beas too…but it’s still worth it.

    3 yellow cards by Rangers already….Braveheart football.

  18. ... says:

    sure, no problem. enjoy the game!

  19. Isaac says:

    I’ve seen drooling 2-month olds speak sentences that make more sense than this….

  20. Ian says:

    Any word on why Gallas went out for Arsenal? Gamecast said injury but nothing specific. Anyone have more

  21. ... says:

    Gallas and Arshavin collided in the 1st half, banged heads, both went off for treatment (Arshavin was bleeding) and Gallas came back on looking woozy and somewhat out of it. I’d guess that’s why he was replaced at the half.

  22. Spectra says:

    Deprecen misses from the spot andd liverpool win

  23. ... says:

    Standard Liege is down to 10, Carcela-Gonzalez red carded for headbutting Fabregas (who was yellow carded) after an exhange of words.

  24. Jacopo Belbo says:

    ask not for whom the bell tolls … it tolls for thee liverpool …. hahahahahahahahahahahaha

  25. William the Terror says:

    yes, Liverpool crash out!! they finally win a game and it doesn’t matter.

  26. Jacopo Belbo says:

    i know. it is delicious irony n’est pas? they win … but they lose! i must admit to just a bit of Schadenfreude as a Red Devil.

  27. Ian says:

    Thanks. So it shouldn’t be long term then. That’s a relief.

  28. Kris says:

    Stuttgart beat Rangers 2-0 :-). Sets up winner-takes-all at home vs Unirea. Go Vfb!

  29. Pool4ever says:

    How is ‘Pool out? Isn’t the first tiebreaker GD? If Lyon loses(not likely) and’pool wins then Lyon and Pool both finish with 10 points.

  30. Jamie Z. says:

    I’m genuinely curious to know what you think you just said.

  31. Dominick says:

    I’m confused as well. if Liverpool beat fiorentina by 4 goals would they have a GD of +3, Fio would be +1 and they would be tied on points. What am i missing? thanks for any assitance!

  32. Kirk Shearer says:

    skysports confirm that liverpool are out- not sure about the calculations that decide it though:

  33. Jose S. says:

    Champions League uses head to head as the first tie breaker

    Liverpool lost and drew with Lyon, so Lyon has the tie-breaker over Liverpool. Liverpool is out.

    Liverpool letting those two final minute goals against Lyon are the reason they are out.

  34. smokeminside says:

    is it just me, or does soccer have more head-butting than other sports?

  35. japan says:

    Gibbs out for 3 months with fractured metatarsal. Looks like we will see Silvestre vs Chelsea. Oh dear…

  36. GunneRR says:

    What Jose S. said: Tiebreaker is head-to-head, and Liverpool loses that.

  37. GunneRR says:

    More likely Armand Traore than Silvestre

  38. japan says:

    that is even worse
