Hey guys, happy Saturday to all of you. Most of you will have followed the Champions League draw closely yesterday and personally, I believe it couldn’t have come better.
Real Madrid vs Atletico in the replay of last season’s final. Surely no Madrista, including Carlo Ancelotti and Cristiano Ronaldo, will be happy about the draw as they failed to beat their crosstown rivals in all six games this season (4 losses, 2 draws).
However, there is no better time to celebrate a first victory over Atletico than at this stage of the Champions League. My prediction: Real will go through.
Barcelona vs Paris Saint-Germain again, after the two giants already met during the group stages. Both teams won one tie each, but surely the Catalan giants must be favoured, particularly since Ibrahimovic and Verrati will miss the first leg. My prediction: Barca to go through.
The other two ties sound clearer on paper. Bayern will be happy to have avoided any real big guns as they drew Porto. My prediction: Bayern to go through. Meanwhile, Juventus got Monaco – the team that everybody wanted – and this tie surely won’t impress with many goals. My prediction: Juventus to go through.
Who do you want to see in the Champions League semi-finals?
