Pepe Reina unhappy with Liverpool's situation in the Champions League

Liverpool only rescued a draw against Lyon at their last Champions League match, and now their situation in the European Competition is not the best. Goalkeeper Pepe Reina knows it and says it's "disgraceful" that his team depends on other's results.

Indeed, Liverpool could win their final two games and not qualify for the next stage of the Champions League. Lyon has to tie with Fiorentina in their next match to help Pepe's team keep alive.

The keeper is honest about it: "We have got two games to go and disgracefully we are not depending on ourselves; we need Lyon to get something in Fiorencia. Our priority is to win our two games that remain and we will keep trying. Miracles? They happen, particularly at Liverpool."

Lyon has proved to be a really tough team and Fiorentina has enourmous talent in players such as Gilardino and Vargas. So, there are not too many chances for Benitez's squad. The next weeks will be very important for Reina and his teammates.

Sir Alex Ferguson was satisfied with the effort of his team: "We were absolutely fantastic in terms of our desire to win the match and were unlucky at times in the game, their goalkeeper made some fantastic saves, we hit the post and missed a lot of other chances...

Amazing 1-1 tie between Real Madrid and AC Milan

The impressive match between Real Madrid and AC Milan ended with a 1-1 tie, and a good football show for the fans. The great performance of both teams comfirmed the rivalty showed weeks ago at the Bernabeu.

French star Karim Benzema opened the score for Madrid after a great move made by Kaka. But Ronaldinho scored the 1-1 with a penalty shot and proved that he is playing at his best level again.

Pellegrini had a really tough week and was satisfied with the performance of his team: "I'm happy because I think we played well. We didn't lose, but we are still on course for finishing top of the group. Normally, I am happy if the result reflects what we did on the field. But tonight definitely didn't reflect what we did."

Milan coach Leonardo was happy as well: “They played better in the first half, created spaces and chances. We were too deep. I'd say the second half was the opposite, as we had the better of it and overall the draw is the fai result for what we saw. To be honest, we feel a bit of regret, as I felt we could get the three points and strike them at the right time. I'm happy with the way the squad did it tonight.”
