: trophy: UEFA Champions League: trophy: 2017/2018 - The art of football
Hey football fans, what do you think about the UEFA Champions league, Round of 16 - the first leg results?
I think my predictions from 3 months ago will come true !

I am not a fan of football, but in all sports I always like to support the worst teams because I like to enjoy when the underarted athlete or team makes a suprise. So I would support the worse teams but I need help from @pin.kod to tell me which are the worse ones xD
@alexander-6666 I respect any team, but i think that Basel has the worst roaster ;(, and they are gonna finish this year's competition is this phase, obviously, but they should be proud of the results they made in this year UEFA Champions league !

PSG will definitely eliminate REAL I also think that the Spurs will stand their ground in the return.

@pin-kod I have not watched any games yet, I was busy with my work
Let's make more predictions
here are my teams:
I think.. one of Liverpool/Juve/Real or Barca will won the UCL this year
@sirclitjeslikker_nl I definitely think oposit. There is no way PSG can beat Real
@sirclitjeslikker_nl In my opinion Real Madrid will go to the next phase because they are regaining good form, and they have players with a lot of champions league experience ! I think that Ramos, Marcelo, Kroos and Ronaldo are key Real Madrid players.
And about rematch at the white hart line, HM, maybe you are right, but I believe in Juventus strength and in Italian defensive tactics ! Even though Juve must win this game i think they will slow build up game with a lot of counterattacks, and maybe one goal and then defensive tactics will be just what Juventus will try do achieve in this game!

@pin-kod I hope Do you remember last game PSG - Barca ?
@fc10red In my opinion Real Madrid, Barcelona or Manchester City will win UEFA Champions league this year
And i agree with 90% of your predictions
@manager-pr-9 In my opinion PSG can win 2nd leg, but i believe they can't go to the 1/4 final, Real is to strong and at the moment they are playing really good in Spanish league !
@maloba Yeah, last year duel in the round of 16, wow, amazing two games ! In the first leg, PSG destroys Barca with 4-0, brilliant performance by Di Maria !
And in the second leg, Barca won 6-1, and go to the next phase! Do you remember the 6th Barca goal scored by Sergi Roberto, wow, that was amazing ! And, I remember some great goal chances by Cavani, but he misses them !

In 2010, Juventus were knocked out of the Europa League by The Then-Mighty Fulham. In 2018, Juventus were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid.
Well, it's always nice to see development...
Do all of you live in the UK or something because everyone is calling it football but I live in Canada and here we say soccer
@nellie101 - almost all Europeans refer to it as football, if not they may have been Americanised.
Brits coined the term soccer circa the 1800s to distinguish association footie from association rugby. The terms rugger and soccer were used up until WWII by Brits, whereby they dropped the latter to distance their linguistic usage from Americans. Also, the prevalence of American football forming and coming to fruition in the 1900s caused some distancing between the terms.
I guess Canadians didn't really have such a need as the Brits for this so-called distancing or distinguishing of terminology.
@nixieosm And now Roma have knocked out Barca.
Liverpool v Bayern would be a nice combo for the final to see if Klopp has developed enough from 2013 to beat Heynckes in Der Klassiker.

I'd love to see Roma-Bayern final and Roma winning that final.
@the-beautiful-one Either Roma or Liverpool would be a nice change as winners. Both kinda deserve it for knocking out Barca and Man City respectively. Bring it on!
