Champions League 25th Anniversary -

Quarter-Final - Chelsea 4-4 Liverpool


The Champions League returns this week and we are celebrating it here at ITV Sport Archive by going through our vault to find some of the best games featuring British clubs since the competition began 25 years ago.

Between 2005 and 2008, Chelsea and Liverpool had met every season at some stage in the Champions League. Liverpool had famously beaten Chelsea in the 2005 and 2007 semi-finals. But in 2008, Chelsea gained some revenge by beating the Reds over two legs to book their place in their first ever Champions League final. Just under 12 months later the two sides met yet again, this time at the quarter-final stage, and the ITV cameras were there to witness a truly unforgettable Champions League encounter.
