  4. Bishopville Red says:

    It pays to win your group!


  5. Martin J. says:

    Chelsea and United get easy clubs while Arsenal and City have the toughest ones.

    Chelsea and United should get through easily while City and Arsenal will probably get knocked out especially since the all-important second leg is away for City and Arsenal. Of course it will all depend on what additions each club makes t their squad and what injuries they have by the time the ties are played.

  6. abdirahman says:

    sorry!f you are either arsenal or,your tournament is probably is over.arsenal have to blame them selves for not getting point in naples that would ensure them as group winners if that would happened arsenal now would be facing zenit,for city the poor pellegrini has to blame him self not even realising what his team he has to face the hell. Iam so sorry that two of our english teams wouldn’t be playing the querterfinal its really shame!

  7. Adam says:

    City have a good chance to advance. They have been unstoppable at home, at least in league play. 8 games, 8 wins. 35 goals, 5 conceded. They have been in very good form in the last few weeks and seem to be hitting their stride. Aguero will most likely be healthy by then. As long as the rest of the starters are healthy, I wouldn’t count them out so quickly.

  8. Flyvanescence says:

    Well the potential tie everyones been talking about and dreaming of came true.

    Bring on Barça!

  9. CTBlues says:

    Chelsea play the first leg Wednesday February 26th and the second leg Tuesday March 18th.

  10. bennett311 says:

    City’s stated goal this year was to progress from the group stage. So there shouldn’t be any added pressure for them to advance.

    I’m envisioning a 13-11 aggregate score with Barca advancing. Should be a joy to watch.

  11. jtm371 says:

    United ready to make a Chelsea run,finish 5th /8th in league so you win CL.i know it is crazy but no one was picking Chelsea to win the CL.

  12. Borussia DortMan says:

    Zenit? Can’t complain.
