More Champions League

Arsenal v AC Milan
The Arse should bounce back from their FA Cup humiliation to Man Utd tonight. Milan are missing Ronaldo and probably Pato so the shaky pair of Gallas & Toure should be troubled too much by Gilardino, and even serial-goalscorer but over the hill imp, Inzaghi.
Fabregas and Adebayor are naturally the key, but it will also be interesting to see how Flamini handles Kaka.
Prediction: 1-0 to the Arsenal

Celtic v Barcelona
This one is tough to call. It is not beyond Celtic to win this game, and they have achieved some big results in the past (vide AC Milan). Sheer force of will and a handful of good players (Nakamura, Donati, McGeady, Vennegoor of Hesselink) may see them squeak past tonight, depending on which Barca turn up.
Prediction: 1-1 with possibility of a last gasp winner from Donati.

Fenerbahce v Sevilla
The Turks have a few players to cause Sevilla problems. Roberto Carlos, Appiah, Kezman and Deivid. Kazim Kazim (better known as Colin Kazim Richards) is relishing his chance in the limelight after his poor time at Sheffield Utd. Sevilla can be dodgy in defence and they might not fancy the atmos.
Prediction: 2-1

Lyon v Man Utd
The match is being billed as Benzema & Ben Arfa vs United but Lyon have more than that and could cause United problems in the first leg.
Prediction: 1-1

in fairness, fenerbahce won too, 3-2 instead of 2-1, arsenal would have won one-nil in the last minute Ade not missed an open goal and the celtic match, well that could have gone either way.

i'm claiming 3 outta 4.
