    Right the Quarter finals are almost here.

    Roma v Man Utd and Barca v Schalke first then that huge Arsenal v Liverpool game and Chelsea at Fenerbache.

    The way we've been playing recently, I think we can win at Roma, we know the atmosphere (3rd game there in a year) and we should be able to cope with their players. Hopefully Scholes won't get sent off this time.

    I fancy Arsenal against Liverpool, they came back against Bolton very well and they've got that extra day off before the game. Could be important.

    Tough matches and at this level is hard to predict. Chelsea has the easiest games against Fenerbahce, for the rest of the games, I hope we see some nice goals

    Man Utd win 2-0, Should easily go through; can't see Roma Scoring more than 2 at United

    Barca Won 1-0 Against Schalke, Should Also easily go through

    Looking like a great Semi Between Man Utd and Barca

    Roma deserved something more tonight but collapsed after Rooney's goal. Barca got VERY lucky tonight in Aufschalke Arena, if they don't improve themselves soon, ManUtd won't have major probs with them.

    I agree Roma had chances, but didn't take them. Barca will need to step up as it looks likley they will play Man Utd in the Semi's.

    I didn't see Barca's game, just the goal.

    Tonight we gave a good away performance with a little help from Roma missing a couple of chances. Frankly at 2-0 we are through but times it wasn't that comfortable as VDS had to make a good save. And yeah we could have had 3 in the end, Roma lost their shape in the closing stages.

    Ronaldo looks good for another top scorer award.

    It's still 50-50 between Arsenal and Liverpool.

    Chelsea

    Arsenal should have won, Bentdner Cleared Fabregas is Shot; Should have had a pen clear foul by Kuyt on Hleb

    Evenly poised, slight advantage with Liverpool with the Away Goal.

    I think Liverpool should go onto win next week but Arsenal will be annoyed as they should have scored (Bendtner what are you on?) and that was probably a penalty.

    I still think Chelsea will go through but what a goal from Deivid!

    After seeing all the first leg results these are my predictions for what teams will go through; Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Barcelona.

    Sorry Gooners but I don't see you guys beating Liverpool at Anfield.

    United will have it easy, we'll rest a few players for our game against Arsenal next weekend .

    Barcelona will still have a tough match even at home but will get through.

    Chelsea may be losing on aggregate but it's time for them to show why they're a top side. Although Fenerbache will not make it easy (they maybe could sneak a win or draw).

    That Deivid's goal was just amazing ... I still think that Chelsea will qualify though since Fenerbache are good at home but rubbish away.

    I don't know what Bendtner is smoking ... he was Liverpool's best defender in that Fabregas shot. I think that with their away goal, Liverpool will qualify ... I think a 0-0 or 1-0 for Liverpool.

    Barcelona took a great result, even though they didn't play exceptionally well. The 1-0 away win will give them the advantage.

    Man Utd are clear favorites. After a great defensive display earned them a 2-0 win at Rome I don't see them losing by 3 goals at home.

    Liverpool are gaaaaaaaaay, as is Senderos, frankly gave them 2 goals. I was loving it when Walcott beat all those players so easily, if only that was the winner.

    And now we've gotta sit through those horrid Liverpool/Chelsea semi-finals where nothing happens and Liverpool win because they scored a fake goal or penalties.

    I was do Gutted Last Night

    Why the hell did we start we Eboue I Franky don't know, When Walcott run 70 Yards and beat 4 Players Easily and set up Adebayor I was jumping up and down like a Kangeroo

    Like Wenger said it was the case of the Big decision going against us, if that was penalty last night than why wasn't Kuyt foul on Hleb one

    So the Semi-Finals have been decided:

    First leg:

    Liverpool v Chelsea (Tuesday 22nd April)
    Barcelona v Manchester United (Wednesday 23rd April)

    Second Leg:

    Manchester United v Barcelona (Tuesday 29th April)

    Chelsea v Liverpool (Wednesday 30th April)

    Predictions for the first leg:

    Liverpool 1-0 Chelsea
    Barcelona 0-1 Manchester United


    Predictions for the second leg:


    Chelsea 2-0 Liverpool (agg 2-1)
    Manchester United 1-0 Barcelona (agg 2-0)

    I believe this is the season Chelsea will go through against Liverpool, I just have a feeling about this. They've lost out twice before to them and I don't think they'll be letting it happen a third time.

    Although personally I'd prefer a Manchester United v Liverpool final

    What do you guys think will happen??... Any predictions??
