CL Quarters - Round 1 is done

We are done with the 4 matches last week that comprise the first leg of the CL quarters. To be fair, it was pretty boring. Look at the scores!! If that doesnt tell you a story nothing will. 4-0, 5-2, 1-0 and 5-1. Except for the ManU vs Chelsea match, every other scoreline has killed the interest in the second leg. And even in the Man U one, I cant see them losing to chelsea at home. Man U are nothing if not resilient this season and Chelsea are nothing if not pathetic this season. So, in short, just not gonna happen. While stupid crouch killed spurs chances of coming away with anything from madrid, it was harakiri at san siro! While Shakhtar can boast of a great home record, if they play the way they did against barca, in the  CL world, no home record can save you.

All in all, pretty uninteresting fare and the only thing that we can really look up to is some intersting matchups in the semis. Looks like we gonna have 4 el classicos now. With Real Madrid hosting Barca next week in La Liga, followed by the Copa del ray match and now the CL semi finals(home and away). Man U, who I think will upstage chelsea (again!) will face schalke which is really a no contest. But a final of the best team in EPL playing the best or second best in La Liga is mouth watering to say the least.

Lets wait for the intriguing minutes that await us... :-)
