Champions League draw...

And so falls the Champions League draw:

Olympique Lyonnais (FRA) v APOEL FC (CYP)
SSC Napoli (ITA) v Chelsea FC (ENG)
AC Milan (ITA) v Arsenal FC (ENG)
FC Basel 1893 (SUI) v FC Bayern München (GER)
Bayer 04 Leverkusen (GER) v FC Barcelona (ESP, holders)
PFC CSKA Moskva (RUS) v Real Madrid CF (ESP)
FC Zenit St Petersburg (RUS) v SL Benfica (POR)
Olympique de Marseille (FRA) v FC Internazionale Milano (ITA)

Ahhhh!!! Napoli vs Chelsea....AC Milan vs Arsenal. So much for Italian and British relations. Those are two very difficult series. Barcelona will make short work of Leverkusen. MEH. I'm fine with Madrid's match up...it could have been worse. Inter kind of lucked out...but I bet Marseille is saying the same thing right now...LOL. A lot of potential for great matchups in quarter finals. In my perfect scenario the following teams would win: Lyon (although I'm fine with Apoel as well so either way is ok), Napoli, Arsenal, Basel, Leverkusen (haha!), Madrid, Benfica, Inter. Odds of that happening = slim to none.
