But it's Barca! Even at 2-0 down they can score 3/4 easily against anyone.

What a game, what brilliant, dazzling football of Barcelona! They played like in their very best days. I hope for the other teams Barça won't keep on playing like this, or the winner is already known...

Real Madrid, Dortmund and Bayern might have something to say about that though!

True, but still...when they play like that?

Okay, maybe Milan was weaker than usual, but that also had to do with Barça being so good. The way they put pressure the nano-second they lost the ball, the lightning-fast passes, the sheer zeal of all players on the pitch...Frankly, I haven't been this impressed since seeing them tearing Manchester United apart in the 2011 CL-final.

Yeah I hear you. But that is a poor Milan team compared to a few years back. The Germans and Madrid are playing amazingly also though. All I know is that I am looking forward to it!

Brave effort by Arsenal tonight, but they lost it 1st leg. Well done to Malaga also, all those financial difficulties and having to sell their top players, and they are through even after getting beat 1st leg!

I find myself highly intrigued by tomorrow's PSG-Barcelona tilt.

Pulling for every underdog except Bayern- Valencia. Those are two top of their table sides and must see TV tomorrow. For the men from Munich to advance they'll need at least two goals and a clean sheet.

I think PSG will need at least a three goal cushion for the return leg. We saw what a 2-0 first match advantage did for AC Milan.

If Galatasaray can walk out of Bernabeu with a 1-2 loss they'll be okay.

Malaga is the biggest underdog. Nothing short of a 3-0 will give them hope next week at Signal Iduna Park.

I'd love to see a Malaga v Juve final. Malaga to win it of course.
