Manchester United Vs. Chelsea FC, UEFA Champions League: Full Time, Red Devils Win 3-1 On Aggregate

Though the result was not particularly surprising in the end, the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal tie between Manchester United and Chelsea FC hardly lived up to expectations, as the Red Devils won 3-1 in a tie that didn't exactly live up to expectations. Fernando Torres continued to struggle, Carlo Ancelotti's tactics were questionable, and the entertainment value in the tie was simply lacking until late in the second half of the second tie.

Ryan Giggs was absolutely fantastic over both legs, just as he has been whenever he's played all season. The Welsh Wizard appears to be absolutely ageless, and if he can be a world class footballer for an incredible 20 years, it's fun to wonder how long he might be able to live. 120 year old great great grandpa Giggs might be teaching his great grandaughter's son how to play in the backyard.

He set up Javier Hernandez's opening goal in the 43rd minute, and in that moment, it seemed like the tie was all but over. When Ramires was sent off in the 69th minute, it appeared to be even more over. Didier Drogba added some brief drama when he scored a goal in the 76th minute, but Giggs and Park Ji-Sung combined to score just one minute later, completely putting the tie to bed.
