Uefa Champions League - Quarter-final draw
madrid derby...as expected. bayern straight through into the semis.
Nice draw. I expect Barca to narrowly progress, Juve to hammer Monaco, Bayern to get by Porto without much hassle and Atletico to whoop Real as usual. Edit: where is RGB to inform us that no Premier League clubs are in this draw?
i take it you forgot what happened the last time we had a madrid derby in the champions league.
Could be. Could also be another 4-0 win for Atletico again just like last month.
That's great, but Real haven't beaten Atletico in six games running since that final, and for 90 mins of that game they looked hopeless against them.
@asmith six games is a lot, but that just means the law of probabilities are in reals favour. besides, on the day you never know. anyone could crumble.
My bet: Barcelona, Atleti, Bayern and Juventus will advance.
Agreed, who would you want to see face who in the semis? I, personally, would like to see Bayern vs Atletico and Barca vs Juve. A Bayern vs Barca final would be quite nice, I think. (I am a Bayern fan)
That would be awesome matches. Barca and Bayern are probaly the best teams nowadays.
Barca and Bayern are indeed playing the best football at the moment. I only worry that they might get drawn in the semis. It would still be great to watch them over two legs, but a final would be more worthy of these two teams that are in such great form.
I think Barca, Real Madrid, Bayern, and Juve get through. Although as a fan of Barca, defending from those corner kicks and being able to get through Silva and David Luiz will not be easy. Atletico will lose against Real Madrid(I'll be glad to be wrong on that one :p).
