    Current Champions League odds.

    Makes sense City are favourites. Doesn't make sense that Bayern are favoured slightly more than Arsenal or that Arsenal are the same odds as Real Madrid as I'd have thought Real would be 2nd favourites and only slightly bigger odds than Man City, and certainly not given the same probability to win the tournament as Arsenal. Real play Leipzig so it's not as if they've drawn a super tough 2nd placed team like Inter.

    Dortmund each way is worth considering.

    Bayern losing at Lazio and down to 10.

    Trophy-dodger Kane is at it again.

    So poor from Arsenal, not a single shot on target all match against a very average Porto side. Taking off an attacker for another defensive midfielder was a tactical mastermind

    Crikey that was tough. Fair play Porto - we weren't better than them I didn't think. The 3 weeks off are much needed as well look knackered.

    Apparently if Atletico get through and draw Arsenal in the next round it will be called 'El.Shitehouseico'.

    Some cracking ties in the next two rounds! Interesting that the two weakest teams IMO (PSG v Barca) play each other so one of them gets to the semis.

    Quarter-finals draw

    Arsenal v Bayern Munich
    Atletico Madrid v Dortmund
    Paris St-Germain v Barcelona
    Real Madrid v Manchester City
    Semi-finals draw

    Atletico Madrid or Borussia Dortmund v Paris St-Germain or Barcelona
    Arsenal or Bayern Munich v Real Madrid or Manchester City

  13. #263
    Hard draws for the UK teams, plus a harder semi, the best 4 sides are all on one side, the other side seems a better place to be

    Arsenal will get through. Tough semi that.

    Great draw for Liverpool in lower tier comp.

    Only the Europa but after losing 1-0 to Freiburg at their place the Irons certainly brought the heat to them in the return at the London stadium last night.

    Arsenal vs Bayern brings a shudder to Gunners fans who will remember the 10-2 aggregate pasting we received last time we played them.

    We don't have experience at this level and will be the 1st time we've played an elite team in the CL this season. So I think Bayern will be favourites and then if we get through it's the small matter of Man City or Real Madrid!

    It's certainly a step up from playing Bodo Glimt last season in the Europa League!

    That being said Bayern being banned from having their fans at the Emirates may be an advantage.

    Leverkusen could be tricky but aside from them should be relatively straightforward.

    What a first 45 mins in both games! Arsenal have been a combo of exciting and naive. Bayern look better than their league form suggests. City are starving Harlaand and need to get the ball in to him much quicker rather than another sideways pass. Just chuck it in the box for him to fight for occasionally man!

    Real have looked quicker and sharper but two deflected goals.

    Phew!!

    Question David .
    What do you think of Bellingham and is behaviour ?
    Without being all sour grapes n all , their all round play is embarrassing but Bellingham is head and shoulders the biggest cheat out there .
    Mind you, watching it on Real Madrid TV aka TNT Sports is scary

    I’ve been disappointed with his behaviour all season Lee, diving, whining and being a general PITA.

    But then again he’s an amateur compared to Vini Jr who is a disgrace.

    Haarland is not at the races tonight, his movement is poor.

    Now I’ve said that he will score

    His movement first half was good but he never gets the ball played into him.

    Unfortunately I am not a neutral in this game. Bloody killing me. Great goals but so much sloppy play as well.

    To be fair it looked like Saka put his leg out looking for the contact.

    Saka should have been showed a red, he’s actually kicked the keeper there deliberately.

    Should have given it simply for allowing Kanes elbow to only be yellow.

    It was a 60/40 call and the ref chose 40 so it wasn’t as stonewall as it seemed in real time.


    Also I don’t think I’ve seen as many worldies in a single game than the Real vs City game- holy moly !!

    Three goals from outside the box . Great strikes but the City defensive discussion will go on .
    Overall , we are much better than the Spanish Man Utd . We should be confident . We were extremely vulnerable at stages tonight. Foden and Haaland were almost invisible but they came through in the end .
    You’d always be concerned with the players they have , but then you look at the players City have.

    Absolutely
    Should have booked Saka for cheating
    Basically threw his leg sideways to take a contact.
    Disgusting.

    What a game though. Madrid were lethal on the break and City suffered from the pressing but great end to end stuff.

    A draw isn’t a bad result away from home.

    Arsenal needed to win tonight I feel. Bayern gave us the most problems up front we've faced all season. I think they'll have too much for us in Munich.

    City should progress from the other tie.

    I think we can go there and win so it’s not all over and done with.
