    Exactly, there is no way a manager sits their best defender on the bench if it was a match they took with high regard.

    As Edonator wisely point out - there was no way Olympiakos was going to beat Bayern at Allianz. So basically all Arsenal needed to do was beat Zagreb at home and Olympiakos by a scoreline greater 1-0, which they both completed without breaking a sweat.

    I have the same ranking except I would swap City with Juventus. This is the year they make the semis IMO.

    I'd see it the other way. He was not realistically fit to play, but as it was a big game, they at least kept him on the bench as a potential option. The way the game was over at half time, it was an option that wasn't needed.

    I see, you're deliberately kidding. :)

    Olympiakos only needed a point at Bayern, and with Munich having nothing to play for, it would not have required a miracle for that to happen. If Arsenal really wrote off the game at Munich, they got even more lucky than they already did by Bayern not putting a nail in their coffin in the first leg.

    I would swap Juve and Atleti with Zenit right behind Chelsea. They've played well but qualified in a relatively weak group.

    Arsenal-Barca
    Chelsea-PSG
    Benfica-Zenit

    Seems like these matches are played every season. Great opportunity for one of Gent/Wolfsburg and a match like this should silence people who think UEFA fix their draws :D

    Dynamo Kiev a few years ago eliminated Man City in the EL knockout stage, the night when Balotelli had an allergic reaction. However this time Kiev play in empty stadium

    Wow, what a crazy draw. PSG-Chelsea and Arsenal-Barca is pretty insane when you look at Gent-Wolsfburg or Zenit-Benfica. Juve Bayern is straight-up semidinalists from last year. Man City and Real really lucked out, Atletico too.

    At least Arsenal can fully focus on the league now. Might as well start youth team vs. Barca.

    Haven't really seen much of Roma. Should be an intereting matchup.

    with both CL and EL draws completed, Italy's take to reach England in the coefficients took a massive hit. Firstly both CL clubs are likely out, the good news is probably 2 of 3 English clubs are out. In the EL the English sides got relatively easy draws with Spurs-Fiorentina being the exception, and Fiorentina really have to win that one

    I watched Napoli vs Roma yesterday

    Napoli completely dominated but they couldn't put it in the net - game ended 0-0


    But the way Real has been playing lately, a loss to Roma is not impossible

    Feel like we all say the Arsenal Barcelona // Chelsea PSG draw coming lol

    We are so ****ed. We're only stronger in two positions in form right now - GK and LB.

    And Matic is suspended for the first leg in Paris. Guess we play Zouma in midfield?

    No issue with GK, but LB is arguable. Maxwell is getting better as he gets old.

    So if Citeh pull a Citeh, the EPL will have no teams past the round of 16 this year; and Serie A is likely going out completely before the QFs as well? Nice. Now lets hope FC VW actually takes advantage of this favorable draw.

    I won't be surprised at all if Liverpool are knocked off by FC Korea despite Augsburg's own issues. Klopp got figured out tactically within the BuLi and augsburg will have a good chance to take advantage of that knowledge like they did against S04 yesterday.

    I'm so sick of PSG-Chelsea. At least we haven't had Arsenal-Barca in a few years.
