The draw for the final rounds of the competition will take place on 20 March 2009. There will be no country protection, meaning that it is an entirely random draw. The quarter-final first legs will be played on 7/8 April and the second legs on 14/15 April. The semi-final first legs will be played on 28/29 April and the second legs on 5/6 May.

I'd like us to face Porto, Arsenal or Villarreal.
(Others in order of preference)

Bayern - Toni, Klose and Ribery can make things difficult.
Chelsea - dark horse with Hiddink at the helm
Man Utd - they are pretty strong, and with a strong squad.
Liverpool - know how to play in the CL and been pretty consistent over the years.

Would like to avoid Chelsea, Liverpool, ManU and Bayern.

Arsenal, Porto, Villarreal wouldnt be that bad.

Actually what worries me, is that we are very fragile sometimes.
For example tonight we were leading 4-0 just minutes before HT but Lyon still made it difficult.

This means that we must score a lot cause we are incapable of holding down leads.

Picture Barca against ManU for example. Even if we, lets say score 2 quick goals, ManU-like organized team will rip us to pieces and score them back. And we are not using our chances which we create on counter. Tonight Henry, Bojan, Etoo missed a lot of good chances. Have to be more clinical.

We're not quite ready for Man U in my opinion. Liverpool we should beat, but we should have beaten them last time, yet we handed them 2 goals out of thin air at Camp Nou. Arsenal, or Porto or Villareal or Bayern, I would feel reasonably confident of getting past.

Come to think of it, I don't care really.

If we get an easy draw and advance, that would be nice.

If we get United/Chelsea/Pool and exit the competition, no biggie, we can focus on la Liga and the Copa final.

Why are so many people voting for Porto?

Arsenal are the ones who can't score. And Porto have that butcher idiot, too.

id like to face you guys- just because of all the intriguing mini battles and reunions on the pitch.

henry back to the emirates. cesc back to the nou camp. toure brothers facing each others. and obviously not to forget mr hleb who im sure would be a crucial part of your team.

even though you guys have immense players going forward, you offer the opponents space which is when we play at our best.

would be an intriguing match.

Arsenal.

Anyways I'd rather have a tough opponent now rather than later on in the Semi-Finals where La Liga race is much more heated, but then again maybe by having an easy opponent now we can focus mainly on widening the gap in La Liga. We'll find out next Friday!
