CHAMPIONS LEAGUE QUARTER FINAL DRAW
Real Madrid v Tottenham
Chelsea v Manchester United
Barcelona v Shakhtar Donetsk
Inter Milan v Schalke 04
Ties to be played on 5/6 and 12/13 April.
I have a huge soft spot for Tottenham as many of my friends are Spurs supporters, so I’m not particularly thrilled about this draw, but I think it will be a cracking good game! As my friend B said last night when we discussed this possibility “Hey, even if we (Tottenham) lose to Real, we can hold our head high because we got this far.” Too true. They’re a wonderful side this year and I will be very sad when we eliminate them! ;-) Hey, at least we didn’t draw Barca!
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SEMI FINAL DRAW
Winner of Inter Milan/Schalke 04 v Winner of Chelsea v Manchester United
Winner of Real Madrid/Tottenham v Winner of Barcelona/Shakhtar Donetsk
Ties to be played on 26/27 April and 3/4 May.
And yes, you’re reading that correctly – we could possibly face Barcelona in the Semis if we both progress. I’m rooting for Shakhtar, y’all!
It’s going to be very interesting!
