CL quarter finals with my predictions, winning team underlined.
Man City - Barcelona
The closest of the match ups. I hold Barcelona as the favourite, but would not be very shocked if Man City managed to some how beat them.
Olympiakos - Man United
The equivalent of a free pass to the semi final for Man U, imho.
Milan - Atlético Madrid
Go back in time and Milan would be the favourites, but Berlusconi is a convicted fraud and his team is falling apart. Probably not a clear cause and effect, but still. Meanwhile the lesser Madrid club has improved drastically. I hand this to the Madrileños.
Leverkusen - PSG
Zlatan and his crew will have a pleasant journey to the semifinal. Sure, it's not Olympiakos, but this is still a sweet deal.
Galatasaray - Chelsea
Chelsea, of course. Galatasaray has a handful of super stars, Drogba for instance, but it'd still be quite an upset if they beat the Londoners.
Schalke 04 - Real Madrid
Yet another game where the outcome seems certain. The king's men will win. Sure, Germans are Germans, but against Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale et al.... Nah.
Zenit - Borussia Dortmund
The Germans win and move Zenit out of the light.
Arsenal - Bayern München
The cost of ending second in your group. It's not that Arsenal is a bad team. It's just that the Bavarian ruling champs are playing the best football in the world right now. Tough luck, Wenger!
So, guess I ended up giving every single matchup to the higher seed.
Not very daring, but it's just the way it seems to me. All matchups look predictable.
The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.
