Reds off to Athens after dramatic penalty win ends Chelsea hopes

Liverpool 1 Chelsea 0 (aggregate 1-1, Liverpool win 4-1 on penalties).


Liverpool reached their second Champions League final in three seasons with a nail-biting penalty shoot-out win. Dirk Kuyt's spot-kick, Liverpool's fourth, sparked the Kop celebrations after Pepe Reina (right) saved from Arjen Robben and Geremi. A first-half opener from Daniel Agger wiped out Chelsea's first-leg lead and took the tie to extra time. But Chelsea, who created little on the night, had an assistant referee to thank for taking the game as far as penalties. An extra-time effort by Dirk Kuyt - who had hit the bar in normal time - was ruled offside when TV replays showed he was level.
