The ideal draw would be we get Monaco whilst the other 2 giants battle it out. But like Basel, I too have a feeling we'll be drawn against Atletico.

Just under 2 hours remaining for the draw ceremony to take place.

I fear Monaco because they're the youngest team and run a lot, opposite to us that are the oldest team and play slow.

I would play Real, if we beat them ok, we're gonna get a huge boost in self esteem
if we lose...well, it's better to lose against Madrid in the semi than in the final

I couldn't stand anotoher lost final.

Atletico arent defensively as good this season.

They lost 3:0 in league against Real but also Villarreal. They conceded against Leverkusen 2 goals one match. Dived for pen outside box to beat Leicester 2-1 aggregate.

They are very dependant of Griezmann. I think with the players we have we can isolate him. That limits them a lot.

Not saying it would be easy.


We will get Atleti or Monaco. Hot or cold balls i think Uefa wants a big final. Not Monaco vs Atletico.

Not worried about other two but let's avoid Real, they are better then us. Tho we have more of a shot in two legs then one tho.


Let's hope we get Monaco and a diminished Atletico will trouble Real enough to slow them down in a aggressive rival semi final.

Is anyone watching the draw live?

UEFA's stream on thier official site doesn't seem to be working

Frankly i wanted Real, im not sure they are better than us and we certainly have their numbers, at least in 2 legs game. Monaco are not to be underestimated, but im hopeful. It feels like 1998 - Monaco in the semis and then Real in the final...

Monaco are a very explosive team up front. We should be wary of the threat they carry.

We would have better shot vs Real in two legs and have great streak vs them. But really to be avoided still, they have more firepower, best midfield in the game and Zizou made them much more of a tactical unit.



Monaco is a great draw, explosive and enthusiastic side. But they have the weakest defense around, 16 goals conceded. We can defenitely exploit them on counters and our defense is good enough to withstand attacking teams.


Only issue is mentally, we are the favorites so how will things shape up psychologically?

Again UEFA does what they do best, fix the draw. Juve Real final more than likely now. Hope Juve win because it would be Miralem Pjanic's first club trophy. Or second..or third.. I guess CL comes last.
