    I said at the round of 16 stage that I could see an English team sneaking into a final.

    That ambitious prediction is still on.

    If we get barca or madrid in the quarters, we might as well give them a free pass to the semis. Semis however I think we'll step up.

    That´s actually not a bad call, the fact that so many underdogs are still in the competition could create an "easy" way to the final.

    Imagine one of the two branches being: Benfica, Apoel and Marseille + "XY". Pretty much every other team that´s still in the competition would be expected to make it to the final with those opponents.

    Can really see a Bayern-Barcelona final but it's so open this year. Last season, you'd be crazy if you predicted an APOEL - Real Madrid quarter final but this season who knows? Maybe APOEL could cause another upset?

    Hmm looks like Chelsea got one of the two teams they were hoping for and Barca v Milan is :coma:

    Which of these games will be coming on ITV and what date? (not SS because I cannot afford it). I can never find out these things

    Tuesday 27th/Wednesday 28th March (first legs), and Tuesday 3rd/Wednesday 4th April (second legs). Not sure which will be shown on ITV, but if they're not shown on the main channel aren't they usually broadcast via ITV 2?

    You can always stream; that's how I watch the majority of matches.

    They'll broadcast Chelsea home because they're the only home team left. They'll also probably want a tie of the Barca-Milan game, or else it'll be the Apoel-Madrid game (Marseille-Munich wouldn't generate enough ratings imo.)

    El Clasico :yawn:
    Of course. Like the all manc derby, I thought that was gonna be the europa league final. Oh wait...

    I fancy an el classico, but I reckon if milan beat barca and chelsea beat benfica, chelsea will be in the final. Milan had two close games against barcelona.

    APOEL are going to get ass ****ed. It'll be a repeat of the tottenham vs real madrid quarter final.

    I really don't think Chelsea would beat Milan, if they were to both progress.

    I'm not too sure about that, the thing about chelsea is that they have experience when it's on the big stage, so do you guys tbf but they don't get too many games anymore. Plus if arsenal can score 3 against you guys, it's possible for a chelsea win over 2 legs. I'm not being biased either. I reckon that it would go to away goals.

    Arsenal scored 3 against us, but a lot of that has to do with us having scored 4, and the subsequent mindset a lot of the team found themselves fooled into. For me, I just don't see Chelsea winning that, but hey - that's what drives the football business along I guess xD

    Even when milan stepped up, arsenal could have still scored the final goal. Well, liverpool beat us in 05 when we should have got the CL that year. So anything is possible, especially with a team as good as ours.

    I know you put it into context, but you still can´t use experience as an argument against Milan.

    Especially because the best Chelsea players this season have been the inexperienced ones like Mata and Sturridge.
