6. EUROPE: Chelsea gains edge over Liverpool
April 26th, 2007 7AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

Chelsea accomplished what Barcelona and PSV in the two previous rounds, and that's win at home in the first leg of its UEFA Champions League semifinal series with Liverpool.

A first-half goal from Joe Cole gave Chelsea a 1-0 win over Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday. The goal was only the second of the season for Cole, who has endured an injury-plagued season that began with his being injured in the Blues' game last summer against the MLS all-stars.

Liverpool, who left top scorer Peter Crouch on the bench until early in the second half, only threatened sporadically. Steven Gerrard had the Reds' best chance, hitting a dipping left-foot volley that was saved by Petr Cech eight minutes into the second half.

The next game will be played on Tuesday at Anfield, where Liverpool lost to Barcelona, 1-0, after winning, 2-1, on the road and it beat PSV, 1-0, after winning, 3-0, in Eindhoven before that.
