I’ve tried to resist but as I can’t help myself I’ve made a few predictions…
Chelsea vs. Fenerbahce. The Turks take a slim lead to Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea’s away goal has given them the platform to proceed. My prediction: Chelsea to go through.
Liverpool vs. Arsenal. After the weekend’s third 1-1 draw between the two sides, Arsenal and Liverpool meet for the third time in a week. The Scousers unquestionably hold the advantage thanks to Dirk Kuyt’s goal at the Emirates, and as much as I want Arsenal to qualify Liverpool seem destined to go through. My prediction: Liverpool to go through. Partly because I think that’s what’ll happen, and partly to try and put the mockers on them. 🙂
Barcelona vs. Schalke 04. Barca hold the edge after winning in Germany, and can anyone see them losing at home? I certainly don’t. My prediction: Barcelona to proceed.
Manchester United vs. AS Roma. United are arguably the best team in the world at the moment, and after handing out a lesson in European football to Roma last week few would bet on them throwing it away now. My prediction: Man Utd to proceed.
