Champions League

My dream remains to go to Champions League final after I tried to sign up for tickets at the UEFA site for the second year in a row. It does seem that going to see a final is even something only for the selected few, and not for the masses.
Just as actually playing!
Four teams have made it to the semifinals after the quarterfinals. FC Barcelona dispatched AC Milan after a 3-1 home victory, while their Spanish rivals of Real Madrid had few problems in defeating Apoel Nicosia 5-2. Bayern Munich continue to aim to be playing the final at home, after defeating Olympique Marseille 2-0, while Chelsea defeated Benfica 2-1 to make it as the only English team in the quarterfinals.
The semifinals will look as follows:
  • FC Barcelona-Chelsea
  • Real Madrid-Bayern Munich
Chelsea will be eager to avenge the 2009 semifinal, where a lousy referee stole the match from them (even though Barcelona became the right winner of the tournament). Real Madrid against Bayern Munich will surely be a geat match.
But I believe that the script has already been written: it will be a final between the two great Spanish rivals in Munich, and I will not be there to see it.
