Champions League quarter-final draw continued

So much for Sepp Blatter conspiracy theories! The quarter-final draw could not have been any kinder to the English teams. For this reason, the tie of the round (on paper at least) does not involve an English side: AC Milan v Bayern Munich sounds like a pretty mouthwatering prospect.

You would expect Liverpool to progress against PSV Eindhoven - although you would have expected Arsenal to. The Dutch outfit are by far the weakest side left in the tournament. Manchester United would have settled for Roma before the draw, I am sure. And Chelsea face a Valencia side which will presumably be weakened by a suspension or two following their brawl with Inter.

I can't see how it could have gone any better for the Premiership giants, Rob. Bayern and AC would have been top of the 'avoid' list for everyone, even though I think both teams are average (without Kaka, Milan are nothing special).

Very good chance of three English teams in the last four, I'd say. Man Utd have possibly the toughest task - I think Roma could put one over on them. Chelsea will be too strong for Valencia, and Liverpool won't concede a goal against PSV.
