The draw for the last 8 and the last 4 of this season’s UEFA Champions League has been made and this is how the quarter-finals draw looks:
Arsenal vs Liverpool
Fenerbahce vs Chelsea
Schalke O4 vs FC Barcelona
Manchester United v AS Roma
Now, now we have some deja vu, don’t we? United have already played Roma in the group stage this season and most observers would believe that the Red Devils would be stronger than the Romans although I would suggest you not to dismiss Roma as a 7-1 underdog this season too.
Arsenal versus Liverpool is the most enticing and certainly the toughest to call. The Gunners play an attacking and attractive football while Liverpool have possibly the best tactician in European club football at the moment in Rafael Benitez.
Barca ought to defeat Schalke with ease and although playing in Istanbul as the opposition is never easy, Chelsea should manage to get past Fenerbahce quite easily.
This is how the semi-finals draw looks:
Ars/Liv v Che/Fen
Man Utd/Roma v Sch/Barca
