Chelsea v Juventus

Chelsea will need to get the tie over with in the first leg, they don't won't to be going over to Italy looking for a goal. I think this is the tightest draw out of the lot, but can see Chelsea just having enough.

Villarreal v Panathinaikos

Panathinaikos are underrated. I can see them pulling it off.

Sporting Lisbon v Bayern Munich

Munich will be too much for Sporting i reckon.

Atletico Madrid v Porto

Close one this, but from what i've seen of the two teams i this competition so far, Atletico look the better outfit.

Lyon v Barcelona

Barcelona are the best team in it this year.

Real Madrid v Liverpool

Bad draw for Liverpool IMO. Unless Liverpool get an away goal in Madrid, i can see them going out.

Arsenal v Roma

Arsenal should have enough to see of Roma IMO.

Inter Milan v Manchester United

This isn't really a pick-em at all IMO mate, Inter haven't really played that good at all, and if Utd turn up with the right attitude, they'll go through easily IMO.

good predictions. i see Liverpool beating Madrid though, they seem to be European specialists and always pull it out when it matters. Ramos could surprise us.

I see Man U v Inter as a pickem cos of the Mourinho factor. he's a master motivator(not saying Fergie aint) and the Inter players would be really pumped up and they have quality. Tbh i would favour Man U in the long run but I could equally see it going the other way!

Altogether though i think this is one of the most competitive last 16's in years, theres no mismatches really. Should be good! Rollon Feb I say!

This is a good exciting draw for the English clubs.

I can see Liverpool and Chelsea going out early though.

We didn't need to dive this season at Goodison mate because your lot were crap.

My predictions:

Chelsea v Juventus
Villarreal v Panathinaikos
Sporting Lisbon v Bayern Munich
Atletico Madrid v Porto
Lyon v Barcelona
Real Madrid v Liverpool
Arsenal v Roma
Inter Milan v Manchester United

Heart over head here a bit Micky?

Your only advannage is being at home in the 2nd leg but if you dont get atleast a draw in Spain you're ****ed IMO.

Liverpool are a better side than Real, How many teams have Pool been doubted against but they've gone through. Barca are the best team in europe ATM they have the best player in the world, a daunting strikeforce and look commited defensively . I can only see one of the English teams beating Barca
