Villarreal/Lyon/Juve could be up for a surprise imo.

Some odds (from expekt). 1 X 2

20:40 SL Benfica - Liverpool FC Champions League 3.35 3.00 2.25

20:40 PSV Eindhoven - Olympique Lyonnais Champions League 2.55 3.05 2.75

20:40 Real Madrid CF - Arsenal FC Champions League 1.50 3.70 7.00

20:40 Rangers FC - Villareal CF Champions League 2.95 3.05 2.45

20:40 AFC Ajax - FC Internazionale Milano Champions League 3.50 3.05 2.15

20:40 Werder Bremen - Juventus Champions League 3.30 3.05 2.25

Out of these, I think PSV and Rangers might get good results.

I think Villarreal will out-class Rangers, no contest there. Roman Riquelme is back and that usually means a great Villarreal performance.

I think the team most likely to suffer an upset at this stage- without wanting to risk wrath from arfy and CarraGold :D- is Liverpool.

Benfica are a good team.

If Liverpool play very well then no doubt they will advance, but it's going to be tricky.

Their Champions League performances have been very good, though.

And since when do Liverpool score goals? :D

I voted Real (in terms of the tie overall, and not their home game where they're obviously rather big favourites), purely because their record against strong opponents is rather crappy.
Arsenal right now doesn't really have a strong team, but considering that thei weakest area is central midfield where they get bossed by physical teams, Real is not of that sort, and they leave the kind of spaces Henry and crew could exploit,

In terms of this weeks matches I'd say Lyon, but I expect them to pull through narrowly.

For this week only it's going to be arsenal, cause they'll only get a draw which is an upset as they should win.

Don't know whether Reals crashing out would be called an upset, people from mars can spot that happening :stuckup:

Real has the toughest opponents, I dont think it would be an upset if they lost to Arsenal just as it wouldnt be an upset whoever looses in the Barca vs Chelsea and Milan vs Bayern clashes.

...but that isn't really an upset all things considered, is it?
wouldn't be a big surprise to see milan fail, no.
but you never know if the ref will gift inzaghi a penalty or not.

still, we receive so many german channels here on tv, that it's almost impossible not to keep up with everything that's happening there footballwise, even if you don't support a german club. :D
