  • *Man City is expected to overcome Schalke.
    *Christiano Ronaldo should inspire Juve to victory Vs Atletico Madrid.
    *PSG should just about edge a currently disjointed Man U.
    *Barcelona all the way….
    *Roma Vs Porto…I will predict a Roma triumph.
    *Ajax should find even this poor Real Madrid side too hot to handle.
    *Final before the final. Liverpool will have to be at their very best to overcome Bayern Munich.

      Eish….eskis sir…..pls i wont advise you to put ya money on Juve and PSG o. When Mourinho and Simeoni decide to play that border patrol ind of football they play when they are desperate….they will fruaustrate a team comprsing of pele, maradona and messi combined.

       
    • The next matches are after the January transfer window. Mourinho will trade Pogba for a couple of players and United will probably be a different prospect but PSG should still be able to overcome them.

        Ahhh man….Which quality player on the planet isnt playing in the champions league yet….? January transfers are always very dicey….unless the new recruits will be coming from teams outside england and playing in the europa league….to avoid them being cup tied

         
      • Levels don change slightly. Moutinho sacked.

         
  • Atlético Madrid v Juventus

    Having come second recently 3 times in the Champions league, Atletico Madrid was always expected to be a tough proposition for any opponent. It has to be said that although they only conceded 5 goals in 9 home matches this season, the 4:0 demolition inflicted on them by Borussia Dortmund during the group stage exposed defensive frailties.

    Something that could perhaps work in Atletico Madrid’s favour, I think, is that the second leg of this encountered will be played in at home.

    That said, Juventus will be buoyed by the fact that they came 1st in a group that had the not-to-special-one’s Manchester United. Juve continue to lead the way domestically and already have established an eight-point this season after 16 games.

    With Mr Champions League Ronaldo leading their attack the Italian should just about edge this one in my view.

    My Prediction: Remains Juventus

     
  • Manchester United v PSG

    I still the remember the time Morinho won the Champions League with an Inter Milan side that was scarcely the best team on the planet despite having the likes of Samuel Eto’o and Diego Milito (that guy was awesome; I love him!) in the team; I think it was 2010. I remember Eto’o playing as a wingback in one of the matches – crazy!

    The once-upon-a-time Special-One (Morinho) will need to draw on all of his Champions League winning expertise to attempt to overcome a PSG side that amassed 17 goals to top a group that included mighty Liverpool – a team that just this weekend revealed how not-so-special Morinho is anymore with Manchester United humiliated 3:1 defeat at Anfield.

    In their respective leagues, the difference could not be clearer: PSG are scoring for fun with 49 goals for 16 games to top the league convincingly while Manchester United will be lucky to even qualify for Europa league next season with the way their season is panning out.

    My Prediction: Remains PSG
