Uh oh!

It almost seems like clockwork that #Arsenal draw one of the genuine European heavyweights in the 1st knock-out rounds of the #ChampionsLeague. They’ve had #Bayern and #Barcelona in the past few years and now they have the Catalan giants again and barring a minor miracle and a major upset, will find themselves dumped out of the competition yet again. Normally, #Chelsea and #Mourinho would have been relishing their chance to exact revenge on #PSG for knocking them out last year but given their terrible form this year, they will fear the Parisiens and will likely get knocked out. #RealMadrid get to play an out of sorts #Roma and Bayern are drawn with last year’s finalist #Juventus, who seem to have improved significantly from their dreadful start to the season but won’t have enough quality to upset #Pep’s mighty Bavarian machine.

#United will be kicking themselves in the shins for (a) being such a terrible team and (b) not beating #Wolfsburg and thus qualifying for the knockouts because the german’s were drawn with minnows #Gent, a tie that they should easily win and even this rubbish #Manchester side could have easily overcome. #ManchesterCity got a favorable tie for a change with a trip to #Kyiv and #Atleti get #PSV.

My predictions:

Gent(BEL) v Wolfsburg(GER)
Roma(ITA) v Real Madrid(ESP)
Arsenal(ENG) v Barcelona(ESP)
Juventus(ITA) v Bayern(GER)
PSV(NED) v Atlético(ESP)
Benfica(POR) v Zenit(RUS)
Dynamo Kyiv(UKR) v Man. City(ENG)
