Manchester United vs Chelsea UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Second Leg | 12 Mar 11

Expect a brilliant match as this fixture has been building up since the draws were made for the knock out stages of UEFA Champions League. The second leg match between these two English mammoths have been made more interesting by the first leg score. Wayne Rooney scored one of the most important goals for Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in the first leg. Being an away match for the red team, it became huge. It is a definite advantage if you look at history during these matches.

Old Trafford will feel like a fortress for the Chelsea side which travels to Manchester for this fixture. The live streaming of this all important game kick starts at 20.45 CET across the world. Chelsea will need to go into this match with all guns blazing in all the fronts. Mid fielders Essien, Lampard & Obi Mikel will have to run their socks off and try to do a Dirk Kuyt for their side. Fernando Torres needs a goal, he just does. There has been a lot of talks about the striker and his goal drought. But people tend to forget that he already has scored a lot of goals for club and country. His scoring rate is one of the best in the business. The way he went away from Liverpool wasn't very subtle but that does not make him a bad striker.

Unfortunately for Chelsea, their other new player David Luiz can't take part in this match as he is cup tied. David  Luiz has been brilliant since he came. He has been a catalyst in this Chelsea side which was what they needed this whole season.

Match Prediction

United to go through with both the teams playing a 1-1 stalemate. Prove it wrong, if you can.
