Podcast: Champions League recap, Liverpool-Chelsea and United drama

What do these gentlemen have in common? They're all big talking points in this week's FOX Soccer Podcast.

Martin Rose/Bongarts



Former Chelsea fullback Mario Melchiot and FOX Soccer color analyst Keith Costigan join Thomas Hautmann to discuss the key talking points in the UEFA Champions League semifinals and what we might see in next week’s return legs. Did Real Madrid’s Carlo Ancelotti out-manage Bayern Munich’s Josep Guardiola? Can Bayern stop Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale at full strength? And will Jose Mourinho park the bus again, or can Atletico crack "The Special One’s" code?

Later, the Chelsea veteran and noted Liverpool fan butt heads as we preview Sunday’s Barclays Premier League tilt that could well decide the title. Will Chelsea rest their stars for the Champions League? Mario tells us what he thinks Roman Abramovitch will tell Mourinho, as well as what makes Liverpool so good this season.

Lastly, we round out the podcast with a brief discussion on the situation at Old Trafford. Mario tells us stories of his former manager Louis van Gaal and whether or not he is the right man for the Man United job.
