Champions League Round of 16 - who you got?
 


Games start next Tuesday night.

The Matchups:

Chelsea vs. Juventus - Chelsea just has too much talent

Villareal vs. Panathanaikos - Pretty straightforward

Sporting Lisbon vs. Bayern Munich - Ribery has to be a top 10 player right?

Atletico Madrid vs. Porto - Meh

Lyon vs. Barcelona - Barca look unstoppable right now.

Real Madrid vs. Liverpool - Rafa always comes through in the CL

Arsenal vs. Roma - Matchup of the round. This is tricky given that Fabregas is out and Arshavin is cup-tied.

Inter Milan vs. Manchester United - Despite having a better squad Inter lost convincingly to Liverpool last season. I don't see them beating a team that is consderably better.

I can't wait for this. The best thing there is in sports after Feb/March in college basketball.

Chelsea vs. Juventus- Juventus

Villareal vs. Panathanaikos- Villareal

Sporting Lisbon vs. Bayern Munich- Bayern Munich

Atletico Madrid vs. Porto- Porto

Lyon vs. Barcelona- Barcelona (aggregate score 100-0 lol)

Real Madrid vs. Liverpool- Liverpool (gotta go by the last few years with Liverpool)

Arsenal vs. Roma- Arsenal

Inter Milan vs. Manchester United- Manchester United (them and Barca are clearly heads and shoulders above the rest)

with the exception of the Man U and Barca games, where those two will dominate, i feel like each team has a good chance.

Oh and how many games in the EPL have Man U played without giving up a goal? 13 or 14 I believe.

Hmmm... those are pretty good. Lemme think, be critical... nope.... that's as good as I can do.

Will add three things though:
- Maybe Real over Liverpool?
- Round of 16 historically has mostly just the best left, so "upsets" should not really be that surprising.
- three: Chelsea - Juventus. Too much suspicious stuff has happpend over the years for me to believe that games are always going off cleanly. UEFA needs Italy to have a team near the final. Juventus has such a dubious reputation ... a strangely officiated away-goal win over Chelsea?

Chelsea will win
Villareal will win (P barely made it out of that group)
Sporting (my underdog win. Bayern is not feeling so hot right now, will probably be close)
Atletico (barely)
Barcelona
Real Madrid (So I hope :P, close matchup imo)
Arsenal
MancU

I just hope an English team doesn't win it, that's all.
