    Given that both matches are level and there's the possibility of extra time and penalties, I thought I'd pose this question:

    ManU v Barca (0-0 after first leg), no score after 90 minutes and the game goes to extra time. Then both score in extra time ..

    What happens next?

    Barça would win on away goals.

    Correct. It's one of those rules that I don't necessarily agree with, but if it works for Liverpool on Wednesday then I won't be complaining!

    Predictions:

    ManU 2 Barca 1
    Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1 (Liverpool to win in ET or on pens)

    I agree with it. If it wasn't like this then one team would have the advantage of playing the extra-time on home soil without any catch. As it is, it's harder to say who has the advantage.

    United are going to Moscow!!!!

    What a tense match!

    Brown, Rio and Tevez were stand out performers for me.

    Hopefully we`ll kick on and win the title now.

    I can see a 1 1 draw and I think Pool will win it on pens.

    If it Pool Man U in the final I think there will be a lot of heart attacks, people missing from work etc....I think fans of either team dont want this final as the pain of defeat would be too great.

    I don't want Liverpool to get to the final but it would be a much easier game than against Chelsea.

    No Liverpool player has even scored (for Liverpool) against Manchester United in the Premier League under Rafa Beneithus.

    Tevez was outstanding, whilst Ronaldo disappointed again... maybe he's not the 'big game' player we all expected him to be?
    It's nothing to do with age... just look how well Messi played!

    I didn't see the game, but most reviews said he worked for the team, instead of himself.

    Usually his problem on the big stage was that he was tried too hard to do it by himself and it's obviously much harder to do everything by yourself against the best teams. If he's learning to work more for the team in those games, then that's a definite improvement.
