Arsenal were so good last night. They so deserved to through. Mexes, van Bommel and Ibra have definitely gone down in my estimations.

Cynical cheaters. :roll:

Fair play to Arsenal. They can hold their heads up. They will definitely get 4th this year, for sure.

Chelsea are pretty much through now then. Luiz had a great game tonight. Torres wasn't too bad. But Benfica disappointed me. No wonder they're 3rd in the Portuguese league. :oops:

Fair play to Chelsea though.

Chelsea vs. Barcelona/Real Madrid should be an interesting tie next round. 8-)

Yeah I almost want it to be Chelsea and Barcelona just due to the recent history of these two clubs meeting in the later stages of the comp. Mind You a return to Stamford Bridge for Mourinho should be very entertaining.

As usual, I think Barça will just edge it.

Although I reckon Barça will win the tournament, if anyone's going to stop them this year, it will be Real Madrid - based on this season's results.

I've got a feeling Madrid will do it this year. With a great squad and Mourinho in charge, they have a great chance to win it. They're miles ahead in La Liga as well.

I'd love APOEL to win it though! :great:

Milan vs. Barca tonight then - who's going to win?

I've got £5 on a 3-1 Barca win. Haven't done first goalscorer but got a good feeling Messi will be influential. :great:

What do you guys reckon?

I think Milan might win tonight, but Barca will get a few away goals. I'll go with 3-2 Milan.

Barca will rip Milan apart at the Nou Camp though! ;) :great:

What a win by Chelsea. Played with 10men and managed to keep Barca out.

I actually screamed like a mad man when Torres scored, so happy for him. Always knew he would score against Barca.
Roll on tomorrow, Real V Bayern.

A great win for Chelsea. Boring tactics, but it worked for them so they don't care! :lol:

The Torres goal was funny, but as a football fan, I felt glad for him. He did take it well to be honest.

Real Madrid play Bayern Munich in the other semi final tomorrow. Who's your money on? I think Real will progress. ;)

It was a boring but very disciplined. It was good to see Drogba stay on his feet more often than not. The funniest moment for me was Neville's reaction to the Torres goal. Was I the only person to think that Torres was still going to miss after he rounded the keeper?

What. A. Match.

Definitely the best Semi-final I can remember for some years - Bayern deserved to go through in my opinion.

I just pray to God that Arsenal finish third now - imagine finishing fourth and having to watch the final, not knowing if you're going to play Champions League next year or not! :o

that sounds like a nightmare for any Arsenal fan. Hopefully you will secure third place and not have to worry.

Like every other team going for the top four this year: wherever we finish, we will deserve it.

Unbelievable match tonight. So many chances by Bayern and only 1 goal.

Chelsea came out the Victor, really happy for Di mateo. Great game :-)
