    I made a mistake ... I thought Real vs. Roma was yesterday and Barca vs. Celtic was today

    Anyhow, Arsenal did really good in eliminating Milan. This can be the end of an era for Milan ... they are out of the Champions League and outside the top 4 in Italy.

    A huge surprise was Fenerbahce elimination of Sevilla. Of all games it was the one highly unlikely to end up with extratime and penalties, after all there needed to be 5 goals in the match ... but it did and Fenerbahce went on to eliminate Sevilla. What a night for Volkan Demirel ... first he makes two mistakes in the opening 10 mins resulting to 2 Sevilla goals, but then saves 3 penalties ... from Villian to Hero in 120mins

    4 English clubs in the quarters for the first time in the Champs League
    The Draw's on Friday, I'd probaly think 2 English sides will be paired in the quarters

    Hopefully:

    Man Utd vs Schalke
    Arsenal vs Barcelona
    Chelsea vs Roma
    Liverpool vs Fenerbache

    4 english teams in the semis cause Arsenal would beat Barca, Chelsea would lose to Barca, Liverpool who knows (they are so random) and I wouldn't be confident about us beating them either.

    Out of the last 8, Liverpool is the one with the most European trophies plus we 've never been beaten by Barcelona at Camp Nou, not to mention last season

    Also don't forget that the draw for the semis will be held on Friday as well, meaning that we will know who gets who in the semis if they progress from the quarters.

    With 4 English teams in the quarters there was always a big chance that we were gonna get an all English Tie

    As always Chelsea get it easy, Man Utd tricky tie against Roma, Barca should beat Schalke

    My thoughts :

    Arsenal vs Liverpool

    After beating AC Milan, Arsenal has to beat the finalists of last year's Champions League and I can assure you that Benitez's side won't give up that easy. The two sides will meet each other 3 times in just a week, as between the 1st and the 2nd leg, they have to play each other for the Premier League at Emirates. No kidding I reckon both sides to have plenty of reserves on that game

    Roma vs ManUtd

    Revenge time for the Romanisti, the Italian side have the chance to take their blood back after the humiliating 7-1 defeat last season in Champions League. Can they make it ? In my opinion they can and I will be cheering for them in this tie (if I have any voice left after the Arsenal vs Liverpool game )

    Schalke vs Barcelona

    I don't think Barcelona is gonna have major problem on defeating Schalke. If the Spaniards remain focused, they won't even realise that they 're missing Lionel Messi.

    Fenerbahce vs Chelsea

    First Olympiakos, now Fenerbahce Ok, if this ain't a fix, what else could it be ?
