Champions league round of 16 draw:

Post by monty junior on Fri 16 Dec 2011, 12:51 pm

Champions League last 16 draw:

Lyon (Fra) v APOEL (Cyp)

Napoli (Ita) v Chelsea (Eng)

AC Milan (Ita) v Arsenal (Eng)

Basel (Swi) v Bayern Munich (Ger)

Bayer Leverkusen (Ger) v Barcelona (Spa)

CSKA Moscow (Rus) v Real Madrid (Spa)

Zenit St Petersburg (Rus) v Benfica (Por)

Marseille (Fra) v Inter Milan (Ita)


Some pretty good ties, you'd think Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern would have no problems getting through but the rest are up in the air for me.

Obviously the AC Milan/Arsenal tie stands out but the Napoli/Chelsea is more exciting in my opinion. The rest are pretty standard, one-sided ties. I think the Europa League ties are simply brilliant, you couldnt have produced better, competitive match ups than Porto/Man City & Ajax/Man Utd. Disappointed PSG didn't make it through but there are still some tough teams waiting for the Manchester sides. Man Utd vs Bilbao will be an interesting encounter in the next round!

I can only see Barcelona/Real Madrid or Bayern taking the Champions League this year.

People should not belittle the Europa league. You play a lot of matches and just when you think it's getting a little easier, all the third-placed - and arguably strong - Champions League guys suddenly come into it. It's a tough competition.

Lazio vs Athletico is another good one, i agree with the Europa league looking good this year, just ashame two or three of the big sides will be out so early.

There is every chance that neither Arsenal nor Chelsea could make the last 8. I wonder when was the last time there were no English clubs in the quarters.

It's seems for the nth season in a row Man U get an easier draw than all the other teams - still the CL games should be very interesting...
