    Make some more predictions! I need the money!

    • Chris says:

      @Happy: Here you go (second leg scores):- Real Madrid 4-0 APOEL / Chelsea 2-0 Benfica / Bayern Munich 3-1 Marseille / Barcelona 2-1 AC Milan.

      I hereby accept no responsibility for life-savings frittered away.

  2. Happy says:

    Thanks, let’s see how this works out!

  3. Tinez says:

    Can’t see Milan scoring in Barca, Chris. Think it will be tight, though.

    Real 4 – 0 Apoel
    Chelsea 3 – 0 Benfica
    Bayern Munch 3 – 0 Marseille
    Barcelona 2 – 0 Milan

  4. Nuno says:

    Group stage: Barça 2 – 2 Milan. It will be a close game, but I believe Ibra will score (just to taunt Barça fans a bit).
    Real 5 – 0 Apoel (“secondary” players wanting to show themselves)
    Chelsea 1 – 2 Benfica (can’t blame a man for dreaming…)
    Bayern 3 – 0 Marseille
    Barça 3 – 1 Milan

  5. Jarren says:

    Okay, Barcelona won 3-1 (sorry Tinez, Chris was right to predict that Milan goal) and Bayern won 2-0.

    Now it’s time for today’s predictions.

    I’ll go for…

    Chelsea 1 – 1 Benfica
    Real 5 – 1 Apoel

    Mystic Meg’s got nothing on me.

  6. Tinez says:


    good prediction there man


    Some credit for me please, I got the margin of the victory correct ;)

  7. Nuno says:

    Thanks Tinez, but unfortunately the prediction I wanted the most didn’t came true, although we came pretty close at Stamford Bridge (even playing with a left back and a midfielder at centre back…)

  8. Jarren says:

    Don’t worry about losing, Tinez. At least now you can sit back and relax while Chelsea get hammered (legally or otherwise) while your Benfica can look back on a decent Champions League performance.

  9. Jarren says:

    Sorry, that post was meant for Nuno.

    Must. Get. Some. Sleep.
