• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

Fun first half. Bayern were dominant, except for about 10 minutes. But I like Liverpool to get another goal. They look dangerous on the counter and when Salah runs at Bayern.

Barcelona is the only team left in the UCL that has won this decade. Don’t be fooled by 5-1, Lyon had a very good chance to advance until Barcelona scored in the 78th to make it 3-1.

It’s wide open, Porto probably the team you want on Friday.

If I was to rank desired opponents for Liverpool

Porto, Ajax, Spurs, United, City, Juventus, Barca

Anfield has been so good over the past two seasons, I have a hard time saying they wouldn’t be, at worst, a 50/50 chance, and definitely higher for the first four.

I’d be worried about no Robertson for the first leg, but they survived without VVD so

I’d think you would want Barcelona before Manchester City, Juventus or even Manchester United (you don’t really want to play a major rivalry in Europe if you don’t have to).

Barcelona doesn’t handle the press a well as they used to and you can counter on this team. Also Barcelona’s recent away record in the UCL is atrocious.

0-0 at Lyon
3-0 at Roma
1-1 at Chelsea with a gift goal
3-0 at Juventus
4-0 at Paris
2-0 at Atletico
0-2 at Arsenal (last away knockout stage win in 2016)

Not to mention Liverpool has knocked Barcelona out all three times they’ve met in Europe, granted the last time they met was 2007.
 
UCL Draw: Ajax, Barcelona, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Porto, Tottenham
EL Draw: Arsenal, Benfica, Chelsea, Frankfurt, Napoli, Slavia Praha, Valencia, Villarreal

Teams still left by country:

England: 6 (!)
Spain: 3
Italy: 2
Portugal: 2
Czech Republic: 1
Germany: 1
Netherlands: 1

That Slavia Praha-Sevilla game must have been nuts. 6-5 on aggregate AET.
