Should be fun. I think Dortmound matches up well with Juve, so it definitely wont be easy. As a Chelsea fan I look forward to some nail biters against PSG, even though I wish we drew an easier opponent.

Hope my Barca beats City again but I'm not confident, not trusting Luis Henrique so far.

As for the blues vs. PSG, I'm totally neutral since I like both clubs.

Had a good time while watching PSG-Chelsea, Chelsea got away with the draw despite not playing up to their means and even parking the bus in the second half, that means both teams can still qualify for the quarters, Chelsea are favourites as they're playing to go through as they'll be playing at home and a 0-0 draw will be enough for them.

Shakhtar surprisingly held Bayern to a draw

OP thanks for starting this. An excuse for me to post about my favorite EURO club: Real Madrid. Not only are they such good players, but every member is gorgeous!

They are posing for a locker-room picture after winning yet another Champions' League game. Cris has scored his 58th goal in 58 CL games according to the DM article below:

As a Chelsea supporter I've never known a 'neutral' profess to liking Chelsea! I've only ever found people that don't support them hate them with a passion!

Just finished watching the Chelsea game, they were deservedly beaten by a 10 men PSG, once again a proof that the Premier League isn't as strong as it's made out to be by Sky's PR team. In the meanwhile, Bayern has just thrashed Shakhtar 7-0.

The premier league teams were top dogs, with 8 finalists from 2004 to 2012 - but not now. Still the best league though just doesn't have the best team in Europe in it.

2004/5 Liverpool win
2005/6 Arsenal runner up
2006/7 Liverpool runner up
2007/8 Man U win Chelsea runner up
2008/9 Man U runner up
20010/11 Man U runner up
20011/12 Chelsea win

The Premiere League just tends to be the least unbalanced league in Europe where all of the major leagues are unbalanced.
