    As I said, PSG is its best form of the season so hopefully they don't get blown out.

    Srsly can't they postpone the games so we get to watch them after work?

    It's ok euro posters you can afford to watch the games at midnight, you have nice weather

    Actually one of the things I hate about champions league is the late starts. Wish they'd start the games at like 18h30 so the kids could watch them too. Who has time to start watching a game at 9pm on a weeknight?

    Will be traveling so won't be able to catch the Tuesday games, but should be able to catch BM/Arsenal. Hoping it's a decent match.

    They are trying to cater to multiple time zones.

    I dunno why but I'm feeling both PSG and Napoli for these games. Mertens is in special form atm and PSG seem to be coming into their own while Emery seems like a pretty strong European coach.

    We'll see I guess.

    I've got to admit, I'm a little anxious about the Bayern-Arsenal game. We just haven't been good since the winter break. We've won most our games, but a couple off late goals, and haven't played very convincingly - very little creativity and chances created, for the most part. Hopefully it's a case of the players getting up for the big match.

    Emery has beaten Barca once in something like 25 games. :(

    Frick I need to work really hard today and tomorrow morning so I can not feel too bad about using one of the screens at my work computer to watch these.

    Wouldn't be nervous. Arsenal have played poorly away at the top EPL dogs all season.

    Yeah but to be fair there's a massive gulf in quality between the team he's managing now and those teams he had against Barca before.

    Sure.
    Unfortunately, I feel there's still a massige gap between Barca and PSG now, even an in-form PSG.
    I see Monaco/City as 50/50 (mainly because Monaco doesn't have much experience because they're the better team), but here it's 80/20 Barca IMO.

    Make that 95/5 :D

    Just read that as well, lucky break for Barca, who've had trouble with PSG in the CL the past few years.

    Curious to see how Benfica Dortmund turns out. Dortmund should be huge favourites, especially with how Benfica barely squeaked in, but if their domestic struggles carry over and Benfica draws on home environment, you never know

    Our Champions League form this season has been excellent, much better than the Bundesliga form. We should beat Benfica, not sure we'll be able to beat one of the other big teams.

    Barca have no business blowing out anybody these days.

    Silva is out though.

    So is Mascherano for Barça

    Gomes will start in midfield lol. Such a soft player against the likes of Verratti and Matuidi, should be interesting

    I think PSG have a very real opportunity to eliminate Barça this year. The problem is we never know which Barça team is going to show up this season, it seems one week they can destroy anyone and the next they can lose to anyone

    This PSG team can't beat Barca over two legs IMO. Especially without Silva for at least one game.

    Good news for PSG is that Motta is out, so Emery is forced to play Verratti/Matuidi/Rabiot. Great news :D

    PSG looking much better right now, but you have to score.
    MSN will score at some point.
