After the midweek champions league first leg ties, Madrid sit in the best position to progress. A 3-0 away win means they are almost certain to claim a semi-final place when APOEL visit the Bernabeu.
Bayern Munich look like they will be Madrid`s opponents in the next round after a 2-0 away win in Marseille. The german`s had a strong game and looked potent in attack. Their main threat, Arjen Robben, scored a goal and set one up for Mario Gomez. Real Madrid will have the advantage of playing the second leg at home in the semi-final.
Barcelona flattered to deceive against a resolute AC Milan. Although they had most of the possession, they struggled to create many clear chances. Milan defended superbly and were quick and menacing on the break. Barcelona will complain that they should have had a penalty after Alexis was tripped by the goalkeeper but Milan should have scored through Robinho in the first ten minutes. It is anybodies game in the Nou camp.
Chelsea are favourites to face the winner after a 1-0 away win against Benfica. They seem to be hitting form at the right time, as does Fernando Torres. They will provide a tough test for any team when in form.
See you in the final.
