Manchester United is Champions League 2008 Lucky Winner

Although never beaten in Champions League (CL) this season, also only conceded least goals between contestants, Manchester United couldn't deny that luck did has part at last night game. Two shots from Chelsea hit the bar, Didier Drogba's red card and John Terry's penalty slip proved that.

Cristiano Ronaldo made Man Utd lead with his head, made him a sharpest-head man in CL this season with 4 goals from heading. Lampard equalized before first half ended. On second half, Chelsea dominated the game and threated Man Utd's goal with shots from Michael Ballack, Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard. Chelsea made 23 shots overall. The score 1-1 made game must be continued extra time.

A provocation from Carloz Tevez made a little fights between players about 7 minute extra time ended. Small foolish mistake by Drogba made him sent off. Chelsea lost one executor for penalty kick.

John Terry, who took Drogba's spot, slipped at rainy Moscow field when he took the penalty which gave extra life to Man Utd. Man Utd won the game with that extra life.

However, Man Utd deserved the cup. Luck is part of football every time. They have proven their class in campaign for Moscow final with superb displays. Chelsea might not as attractive as Man Utd but they have also proven that they have stable performance since managed by Avram Grant, the manager who emerged from middle of nowhere.

Congratulation to Man Utd for their third CL cup. Congratulation to Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Paul Scoles and Owen Hargreaves for their second CL cup. My sympathy for Michael Ballack who has second lost in CL final.
