At least if Arsenal lose, they can claim that Putin poisoned them.

City have Manu at home in between both games. Will the Everton match on Sunday not have to be moved?

Not the draw you'd have picked for Liverpool but there weren't any easy ties left.


Don't see any reason why Liverpool-Everton would need to be moved.

Sevilla or one of the Italian sides ?

Anyway it's done now. If Liverpool can somehow shock city, it'll give them good momentum for the semi against Real Madrid.

Aye, Sevilla were a real pushover in the group stage.

I know you've built up a reputation as being a bit po faced and a negative kinda dude but c'mon man, we dominated them TWICE and....well........Alberto Moreno was born 25 years ago and played for Liverpool.

I feel dirty but I'm actually going to have to root for city in that tie. As galling as them winning it would be - a sixth for Pool would be all kinds of appalling.

Biggest takeaway from that draw is how Bayern came second in their group and have proceed to get the easiest tie in the round for the ro16 and quarters. PSG won the group and faced the holders lol

I'm not being po faced though. It just annoys me that so many of us are still stuck with the idea that leagues outside the EPL consists of one or two big teams and then 18 teams made up of part time donkey farmers. Sevilla dumped out Man Utd on Tuesday night and by Friday we are back to lads going " ah sure they're no strawberry floating good like".

I watched both legs. Sevilla weren't very good, it's just that Man United were showing them too much respect and not playing at all to their potential.
To say they're not a better option to play against than Barca, Bayern or Man City would be silly. Yes they could still have a good chance against any of the 7 teams against them. But it's logical to say that they'd be a preferred team to be drawn against. Anyway I'm not going to say too much and will just let Photek argue with you, I'm not good at forum 'debates'"

I've got a horrible feeling the rest of the season is going to be uncomfortable viewing. Questions must have been asked after Tuesday's capitulation.
