While it may seem that the ties are already decided, as with many things in life, you never fucking know. Heck, it was only last year that Barcelona turned around a 4-0 away deficit into a 6-1 home win to advance against Paris St. Germain.
Does anyone this year have a chance to have a similar turnaround?
TO THE GAMES!
Roma v Barcelona (1-4 Aggregate)
Balls: Obviously, I’m rooting for this NOT to be the comeback game. It’s in Rome, which gives the Italians hope, but I just don’t see them scoring three unanswered.
Predicción: A 1-2 Barça away victory and an anxious wait until Friday to see if they can draw Liverpool in the semis.
Litre_Cola: This tie is over and I think that FCB may even rest a few guys and only bring them on if things get dicey. Roma doesn’t have the firepower to stage a comeback even if it is in Rome. I really hope that Barca get Real the next round, I want to see 2 more classicos. MAKE IT SO SEPP BLATTER!
Predicción: 1-1 Because it doesn’t really matter.
Hippo: Christ and Sonny Jeebus, who gives a flying lizard fuck. Not even the Pope, I would bet.
Predicción: 1-1 (Barça 5-2 on aggregate).
Don T: Fuck you, Roma. You reach the last eight of the Champions and open in Barcelona with two own goals. Smell ya never.
Luis Suárez had a 10-month goal drought in the Champions League. It’s broken. It begins.
Predicción: Roma 2 : 2 Barcelona; one red card, four yellows (Barça wins on aggregate 6-3)
Manchester City v Liverpool (0-3 Aggregate)
Balls: THIS is the matchup. This one is the most likely to be reversed. City is at home and Google gives them a 66% chance to win. Hippo can tell you if the odds are right, but if you paid attention in DFO University, you should be able to figure that out yourself. I myself think that if anyone can do this, it is Pep.
Prediction: A 3-0 home win that takes the tie to penalties. Liverpool will then complete the choke job better than Michael Hutchence.
Litre_Cola: Oh this is totally going to be a comeback game. I was at the pub this weekend and Man City is incredibly Jekyl and Hyde. I think the 1st match in this tie was shitty Man City playing and that they are going to turn it on for this one.
Prediction: 3-1 and Liverpool gets through on the away goal.
Don T: Yeah, I think this will be a good game. The Guardian says that Salah is starting and that Klopp is playing for the win, not playing to hold.
Oh, I can hear the groans over my shitty Internet. Give yourself over.
Guardiola’s asking for a perfect game from his players, but they’ve looked pretty demoralized in their last two drubbings. Call me cynical, but with the Premier League title in hand, I don’t think the players will respond to any
Predicción: Machester City 2 – 1 Liverpool (LIV survives 3-2)
Hippo: This will get talked up endlessly, but City are in tatters after Sunday’s choke job. The Redshite will score within 20 minutes to ensure that we get absolutely no entertainment this round, this month, whatever. Everything is shit.
Prediction: 1-1 snorefest (Redshite 4-1 on aggregate).
