The title says it all. Just when I thought the 7 goals Arsenal scored against Slavia Prague was something, this one is even crazier. Liverpool won the match 8-0 against Besiktas and gave Rafa Benitez a fantastic way to celebrate his 50th European match for Liverpool. This season has been so far extremely bad for Liverpool. They underperform both in the domestic scene as well as in Europe. Benitez has always have better results in Europe but this season is the worst since he became the coach. They may not make it into the knock-out stages if they don't win their remaining two matches. The only good news for them this season is that they are given the approval to build a new 60,000 seat stadium in Stanley Park.

Elsewhere, Valencia were defeated with Koeman in charge against Rosenborg. FC Porto beat Marseille 2-1. Lazio won while the 'play beautiful football only' Real Madrid and Olympiakos drew. Celtic beat Benfica while AC Milan won comfortably against Shakhtar Donetsk. Like Real Madrid, Chelsea only managed a draw against Schalke 04 with the same scoreline of 0-0. I realized that there are many difficult to pronounce clubs in this season's Champions League.
