Barca was definitely the superior team tonight, but beware: this is only the case because they kept Chelsea from getting too many chances to pierce what is the weakest defense left in the CL.

IM semi-professional O, Barca needed to score tonight to have much of a chance of advancing. My early line prediction: Chelsea -150 Draw +200 Barca +350.

yeah, i think it's going to be tough next week....it depends on how chelsea reacts. they haven't exactly been stellar at home (um, liverpool anyone). i think barca's chance at a 1-1 win overall is pretty good.

now, tomorrow, i hope the gunners kick some man U arse....that is unless howard webb is officiating :rolleyes:

It actually was a pretty good game since it was basically watching Barca play the beautiful game and Chelsea sitting back and absorbing all the pressure.

OTOH, I thought the Man U/Arsenal game was pretty flat since Arsenal couldn't get anything going.

Chelsea sat back and Hiddink of course, lied about wanting to attack.

I wanted Barca to win actually.

On the other hand, Arsenal were lucky indeed. Almunia is definitely their hero for the night at Old Trafford.

I was hoping United managed to beat him. Ronaldo did, but the crossbar was there. Giggs did, but was offside.

The return leg should be a scorcher IMO.

I doubt I'd watch the Chelsea game nonetheless. I mean, sure, they HAVE to attack and not concede. But, I think it's going to be a boring game. At least, I know the Arsenal vs. United game would be good.
