THEY DID WELL TO GET TO THE SIMI-FINAL OF EUROPE,BUT EVERYONE SAID THAT THEY WOULD KILL BAYERN LEVERCRUSIN [SPELLING WRONG] 3-0 ,5-0, 4-0,3-1....BUT THEY WERE ALL WRONG.LAVORCRUSIN [SPELLING A BIT BETTER I THINK ;) ] ARE A VERY GOOD SIDE.I THINK BALLAC IS BRILL. THIS IS THE REASON THEY GOT A 2-2 DRAW, AT OLD TRAFFORD,UNITED'S GOALS CAME FROM A PENALTY AND A DEFLECTION.SO IS IT ALL OVER WHEN THEY GO TO GERMANY:confused: :confused: I THINK SO:tongue:

Leverkusens problem is that they have only 13 or 14 first class players and after this long season with liga cup and CL they could be a bit tired, like you saw in Nürnberg! :tongue: :D

This should be a very lively encounter - let's hope so.MU have Roy Keane back,BL will probably start without Ballack due to injury.As everyone knows,the strength of MU is their attack,and they'll certainly be going for it.How will BL approach this game?Their home record is excellent,but this will be a stiff test for them.If they decide to control the ball(like they did to good effect @ OT),and play on the break,then that could do for MU's hopes.With RVN not looking his usual sharp self in recent CL games,will Ole be the saviour again?It could just be...but this is a big ask.Roll on Tuesday night.
