Messi is AMAZING. He's only 24 and has over 225 goals for Barcelona. Only needs a few more goals to set the Barcelona record for goals in all competitions.

Messi is just a living legend. Its not every often we get sports starts who are so good at their game at such a young age. There are stars but nobody compares to Messi IMHO. I can win every discussion about a great player thats playing today by saying "Hes not as good as Messi"

Thats the most enjoyable game I have seen this season. Chelsea played a great game and to come back from a 3-1 first leg defeat against Napoli is no mean feat. And David Luiz actually looked good tonight!

Champions League, quarter-final draw:
APOEL Nicosia v Real Madrid
Marseille v Bayern Munich
Benfica v Chelsea
AC Milan v Barcelona

First legs to be played on March 27/28
Second legs to be played on April 3/4

Semi-final draw:
Marseille/Bayern Munich v APOEL Nicosia/Real Madrid
Benfica/Chelsea v AC Milan/Barcelona

First legs to be played on April 17/18
Second legs to be played on April 24/25

Looks like a walk in the park for Real Madrid all the way to the finals.
Tough draw for Barcelona, I think AC Milan is capable of getting results v Barca.
Chelsea certain semi-finalists.
Do you want to see another Chelsea-Barca semi?

AC Milan will get hammered from Barca I think, yeah they got a good result in the group stages against Barca, but Barcas form has went up a notch, Chelsea have been one of the few teams to outplay Barca and they have done it more than once so it will be interesting if that fixture happens in the semis.

Remember how Inter Milan dumped Barca out 2 years ago in the semis or quarter finals?
Italian clubs, especialy Inter, AC an Juve are/were masters at getting results in the knockout stages. And Barca is definitely beatable, their form in Spanish La Liga is far from perfect.

I would like to see Chelsea-Barca semis though.

It probaly will be a Barca Chelsea semi. Barca should walk Milan and Chelsea should walk Benfica. Then a Barca v Madrid final would be amazing. The two best clubs in the world fighting for the best trophy in club world football.
