    Well, that would be a good thing since its better to start away. Question is if the same thing applies if both teams are drawn away with the return-game scheduled at home at the same day? Probably would I guess.

    Why not let one play Tuesday and the other play Wednesday?

    The rules include consecutive nights as well (so no games in the same city on consecutive nights). Not sure why, seems odd to me.

    We will get juve as soon as they got through, have a feeling we have them if not it's the bindippers , would like Ajax myself good club and there's at least 1 decent one going to semis.

    According to leaked photos prior to the Ro16, we were facing Barca. I hope you are kidding.

    The only time a draw was revealed ahead of schedule was when Roma posted about their Liverpool tie. So maybe it's not entirely random, in which case we can expect Barca vs Porto, City vs Ajax and United vs Liverpool with Spurs getting Juve as an afterthought. All their favorites and moneybags progress, while the greatest footballing rivalry is sure to be an attraction.

    I remember every year for 3 years leaked photos came true. The days arsenal were a decent CL team.

    I want Barcelona, the look on the rats face will be priceless when Smalling takes him out of his pocket.

    The thing is, there is only a finite number of possibilities. so you just have to leak a few of them and you'll be sure that it'll be the one highlighted after the draw.

    Could it be why press have been fed by UEFA around the regulations with respect to clubs from the same city playing on the same day at home?

    Seeing Man City get a favourable draw and us getting an absolute bastard of a fixture goes with this season's cup draws alright.

    It seems so. Strange set of circumstances. I know Manchester is much smaller but I don't remember this being brought up when Arsenal and Chelsea were both in it

    Arent these leaked draws from people who set their Twitter account to private, tweet out all the possible combinations then delete all the ones that aren’t what actually happened? Then that someone can then proclaim he’s a UEFA insider or some card counting genius or whatever shit they want to carry on that high horse they’ll straddle on.

    Is this a new thing or does it only apply to Manchester for some reason? I remember Atletico and Real having home matches on consecutive nights a few times such as the 2016 quarters.

    Apparently what's written in :

    Pool vs Ajax
    Juve vs Porto
    United vs Spurs
    Barca vs City.

    We'll see tomorrow, ha! If that's true then they have been fixing it alright. :D

    If there was any truth they'd surely change it now though.

    Why would he even contemplate posting such stuff on social media, and surely an accidental posting is highly unlikely only for him to recognise it seconds later. I will call it a dogshit.

    Also very dodgy for the picture to be taken at such angle for it to have this mysterious and leaked vibe.

    Considering how many of these fake draws are doing rounds, some are bound to get it right.

    All these 'leaks' and you can't get a fecking clear picture. The UCL director must have been drunk out of his mind. Reminds me of all those bollocks big foot sightings.

    I'd imagine the council/police say they don't want two (big) back to back games to cope with.

    we would have more reason to be confident right now. your current form is shocking and if you don't fix up the quarter final will be the end of the road for you regardless of the opposition.

    Hoping we get Porto, Ajax or Spurs tomorrow. Can't deal with the nerves of playing Liverpool or City.

    Hope we (Porto) can avoid City and Barcelona. Don't want Liverpool again. Would prefer Ajax, no question. Nice club and the only one we have a chance with. Failing that I'd take Spurs and United before the rest :D

    The gap between EPL and minor leagues like us is getting way too big. We bought one forward in the winter transfer market for 1M euros. Who the feck still buys strikers for that amount in England? With that said I believe any team will have a tough match in our stadium. The players really work their asses off till the final whistle.

    Very good from the Prague number 9.

    Very smart to cut back instead of going for a shot like many strikers would.

    Imagine the saddo sat at his laptop typing that up/copying an image (in two minutes) and posting it just so he can get some social media replies/shares?
