  • This is a wonderful draw, just like the WC draw. No partiality. We have some mouthwatering matches to tickle the loyal fans of the Champions League. Real Madrid vs PSG is the match all fans would have wanted to be the final but we are not complaining as it will be played early. Chelsea vs Barca is a match Chelsea fan would have loved to avoid now. They must be saying privately “which kind thing be this na.” In public they will like to should bold face. They will bone but inside they know unless some special happens, this is likely the end of the road for Chelsea in the UEFA league!!!!! I pity Chelsea. Anyways, football is not Arithmetic. 2+3 is not always 5 in football. I no know why dem go give hot hot Man City Basel. This is going to be a one sided match. The fans will have the opportunity to see some of these stars live. Apart from that nothing for Basel. Juve vs Tottenham is a 50-50 match. Man U should be careful when they take on Seville or they will be pushed out of the CL. As for Liverpool they are slimly above Porto. 49-51. If by January nothing is done about their leaking defence, na dem sabi. Bayern vs Besiktas is a win win for Bayern. Shakhtar vs Roma is a 45-55 match. Advantage 2nd leg in Rome. As we say anything can happen in modern football. Never count your chicks just yet o.

      So you think barca fans are not equally lamenting? Licking sugar does not mean you will be happy!!! The bitter fact that Chelsea defeated athletico Madrid who always give barca and real Madrid a headache, is a morale boasting achievement. Chelsea create lots of chances and barca do not really have a strong defense.
      Well, wait and see by next year

  • What of bayern munich
