Champs League

There was some drama yesterday across the pond in Champions League action.

Newspaper Hack's beloved Chelsea drew 1-1 with Barcelona in Spain. However since Barcelona won the first leg they move to the QF's 3-2 on aggregate.

Villareal and Rangers also drew 1-1 but since Villareal had more away goals (2) they move through on aggregate 3-3 (2-1)

Juventus also advanced after defeating Werder Bremen 2-1. They ended up tied on aggregate at 4-4 but Juve's 2 away goals were better then Werder Bremen's 1.

AJAX and Inter have been postponed until next Tuesday.

PREDICTIONS for today:
Lyon (1)-PSV (0)- I think PSV will only get a draw on the French champions. Lyon scores in the latter stages of the second half to see them through. DaMarcus doesn't play much I don't think. Prediction: Lyon 1 (2) PSV 1 (1)

Milan (1)-Bayern (1)- I think this one will be 1-1 after 90 and thus end up in extra time. Ballack gets the winner on a typical header in extra time. Prediction: Milan 1 (2) Bayern Munich 2 (3)

Arsenal (1)- Real Madrid (0)- Two weeks ago Real came out flat. I don't think they will be flat this week- but Arsenal will hold on. Goals to Henry, Cesc Fabregas, and Zidane. Prediction: Arsenal 2 (3) Real Madrid 1 (1)

Liverpool (0)- Benfica (1)- I think Fowler and Luis Garcia both score for the Liverpudlians to send them through. Prediction: Liverpool 2 (2) Benfica 0 (1)

Thar ya go.
