    You never want Bayern. But if you're going to get them, this year might be a year to get them.

    Wanted Juve to avoid Atletico or Liverpool and of course we get one of them.

    I could see Ajax pulling an upset. In fact I’m not even sure it would be considered an upset. Ajax has been very good this season.

    If we can't beat Atletico then we don't deserve to be there.

    On paper Juve should be able to beat them. But Atletico might be the more balanced team across 4 lines. With a solid team like theirs I’m worried Juve’s midfield would lack creativity to break their lines.

    I’m praying for Pogba or Rabiot to join this winter

    I kind of expected us to get Spurs. Not so bad. I just wanted to avoid Liverpool. I thought the rest of the teams we should beat. Spurs are a decent side, so it should be a close tie, although we are probably a little better this season.

    All the winners of the Round of 16 are hoping they draw the AS Roma-Porto winner.

    That's what I have too, which means 1/2 of these teams will lose. :)

    Someone missed Lyon dominating City in both legs.

    I'm not sure where Lyon will stand in march, but they're notoriously on a roll in the second halves of seasons the last few years.
    With the crazy uber talent they have throughout the lineup, they're not a walk in the park.
    Barca should and will probably get through of course, but it's a huge mistake to seem them as "bye".

    On paper, maybe... The midfield is the biggest weak point we have. It's like the board is allergic to signing a midfielder. I am not getting my hopes up high after witnessing a disastrous 3 games in a row. We hardly ever truly dominate games. How many times this year we struggle to score one goal and Napoli or Inter get 3+ the against the same team a week or two after.

    I wanted Barca for Liverpool but this will do.

    This will be a very fun series.

    I wouldn't want to face Messi without VVD. Luckily for you, that will not happen

    I don't mean it as an insult to Barcelona at all. I'm sure Lewandowski without VVD for a leg isnt going to be a picnic either. I just want to see this Liverpool team against a Super Team like Barcelona.

    Considering match 1 is at home, I'm a bit less concerned with VVD being out, but I think it's going to be a tough ask no matter what.

    Best possible draw for Roma.

    Time for revenge.

    Real lost twice to CSKA in the group games, Ajax can pull it off.

    Read Fekir is out for the first leg, that’ll be tough for OL since the second leg is going to be played in Barcelona. Still, should be an exciting matchup
