UCL Quarterfinal Draw

Don't like these matchups too much but it should make for some great semis

Real vs. Gala
Barca vs. PSG
Juve vs. Bayern
Dortmund vs. Malaga

I think Juve vs. Bayern is the only one that's actually competitive.

Yea I was hoping to be able to root for Drogba to make another Cinderella run but I need Real/Jose to stay in it as they have the best chance to ensure Barca and I guess Bayern don't win.

Malaga is anything but an easy out this year though

Looks like it'll be a Spanish/German final to me.

If the Spanish and German teams get through, I hope we don't see Bayern v Dortmund and Real v Barca in the semis.

re: UCL Quarterfinal Draw
Of course, wasn't meant as disrespect. It's pretty obvious that's an easier draw than at least half the other teams left. But it's round of 8 time, BAD teams dont get this far.

re: UCL Quarterfinal Draw


After getting such a tough group, Dortmund does have quite a good draw here. I wouldn't say that Shaktar was necessarily as easy as some feel but it was a good match up for Dortmund since Shaktar's Brazilians love a fancy attack but they play very shoddy defense when pinned back (which I doubt ever happens to them in Ukraine).


Pellegrini's done a great job by switching his usual tactics and getting Malaga results through clean sheets and frustration. But they have nowhere near the top end talent that the best 6 teams still left do.

I'm hoping to see Malaga advance since they're certainly the biggest cinderella story remaining but I also didn't really count on them getting past a weaker Porto squad than usual and may not have without Porto's red card. They started the remains of Julio Baptista and Roque Santa Cruz up front against Porto for goodness sake.


Juve v Bayern seems more like a finals than ManU v Real (even if Fox won't hype it as much). I'd still guess Bayern manages to get through but it's the last team they probably wanted to face with Juve's defense combined with Bayern's tendency to get so frustrated when things don't go smoothly.

Barca v PSG would be a little more interesting if Ibra wasn't suspended for the first leg. They haven't looked that good without him up top.

Can't say much about Real drawing Galatasaray since they had ManU last round but I was hoping to see the turks play in Germany again.

well they had madrid, city, and ajax in their group and won it, so it's almost fair that they got a solid round of 16 and quarterfinal draw.
