Starting Eleven Football Blog Roundup

Today’s tour around the football blogosphere focuses primarily on Day 1 of the round of 16 Champions League matches; the final will be played at Lucschniki Stadium, right, in Moscow.

101 Great Goals does an excellent job of recapping what the English papers are saying about Liverpool’s remarkable win over Inter Milan yesterday and more on the mystery of Rafa Benitez’s success in Europe and domestic flailing. Hold the life raft!

Oliver Kay at the Times of London theorizes that despite Liverpool’s win last night, Rafa may have to repeat the miracle of 2005 to keep the Reds’ American owners from letting him go

Footballing World says Liverpool and its fans were “sharp, focused, committed, energetic, and probing.” All fine and good; someone has to answer why they can’t manage that kind of commitment in the Premiership.

Soccer by Ives put together a running commentary on yesterday’s Roma-Real Madrid match, as well as Liverpool-Inter.

View from the Terrace provides a quick recap of all four games yesterday, leading off with Schalke’s win over Porto.
