Champions League Potential Pairings

Now that the final matchday has come and gone of the Champions League, we now know what the potential parings for the final sixteen of the Champions League could be. With the draw a week from Friday, it’s always good to have a little bit of fun with what could possibly be. Here is the list of opponents each group winner could possibly face in the round of sixteen (the only two restrictions are you can’t face the runner up in the group you were in or a team from your own country).

AS Roma: Sporting Club, Atletico Madrid, Villareal, Lyon, Arsenal, Real Madrid.

Panathinaikos: Chelsea, Sporting Club, Atletico Madrid, Villareal, Lyon, Arsenal, Real Madrid.

Barcelona: Chelsea, Inter Milan, Lyon, Arsenal.

Liverpool: Inter Milan, Sporting Club, Villareal, Lyon, Real Madrid.

Manchester United: Inter Milan, Sporting Club, Atletico Madrid, Lyon, Real Madrid.

Bayern Munich: Chelsea, Inter Milan, Sporting Club, Atletico Madrid, Villareal, Arsenal, Real Madrid.

FC Porto: Chelsea, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, Villareal, Lyon, Real Madrid.

Juventus: Chelsea, Sporting Club, Atletico Madrid, Villareal, Lyon, Arsenal.

So what do you want to see out of the round of sixteen draw? Do you want to see Inter Milan face Liverpool or Manchester United and see a Jose Mourinho return to England? Do you want to see Chelsea drawn against Barcelona? Could we see Arsenal face Roma? Or do you just want the path of least resistance to the quarterfinals? Click on the comments and let us know.

    Mourinho will have to settle for another rematch with Benitez.

    United . Real Madrid is a lead pipe lock.

    Barça / Chelsea III would be a no brainer for the fixture fixers at UEFA too.

    Is it just me, or is the same teams facing the same teams every year wearing down the mystique of the tournament?

    United v Sporting. United v. Villareal. United v. Roma (quarterfinas, anyone?)

    Liverpool / Chelsea…

    A lot of Same-same going on. This tournament needs a re-working.

    The only way that could happen is if they both advance to the quarterfinals.
