Champions League quarter-final draw

The UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw has been conducted and thrown in some interesting ties. A draw was also made for the semis and we could see yet another Liverpool/Chelsea clash in the Champions League.

AC Milan who knocked out Celtic will meet Bayern Munich. Bayern have the advantage of playing the second leg at home but I think AC Milan will sail through and this could be decided by an odd goal. The winner of this match will meet the winner of Roma/Manchester United.

Roma have done very well to reach this stage after disposing of early favourites Lyon. I think they are going to give Manchester United a tough match and I will put my money on Roma to go through.

PSV Eindhoven have been paired once again against Liverpool this season in the Champions League. After dismissing Arsenal from the competition PSV should fancy their chances against yet another English opposition but I think Liverpool are well drilled for Europe and I will not be surprised to see Liverpool in the semis facing the winner of Chelsea/Valencia.

Valencia have been paired against Chelsea and this is going to be a very interesting tie indeed. After starting the season on a high in La Liga, Valencia's form dipped just before Christmas but they are now flying high again and because of that I think this could be the last time we see Chelsea in the competition this season.

With three weeks before the first legs to be played in the first week of April, the teams have enough time to study their opposition and map out a strategy that may pave their path to European glory.
