I'm confused about how Barca were the only possible opponents for Milan. Surely they could have been drawn against United? I wasn't really paying attention to anything other than the team names as they came out, so maybe it was explained.
It's because unless it happened like that, 3 out of the 4 remaining teams in the pots have been Spanish teams, and that means a Spanish team would have HAD to go up against another Spanish team, which as you may know, is not permissible in this Round (going up against the other team from your group is also not permissible) . Next round onwards, everything is fair game though.
We can't match up with Spanish teams, let alone fucking Madrid. We can probably beat them at home, but I can't see us living with them in Madrid. Ronaldo is destined to score 2-3 goals. Well fuck, at least City wont be focusing on the league alone.
Juventus will be a very tough draw for us and it will be a real test of Lenny's tactical nous since Juve play a 3-5-2 formation and play it superbly. Massively important that we don't concede in the home leg if we are to have any chance of progression, if we can come away from the home leg with a 1-0 win or even a 2-0 win then we the away we simply stick 10 men behind the ball like we did against Barca and that should give us a real chance of a place in the last 8
Did have to laugh when reading the Celtic forums earlier, they were complaining about how Turin is a very dangerous place and they have no intention of traveling there for the away leg when some of them were from Glasgow the "Murder Capital of Europe"
