The draw for knockout stages of champions league is quite interesting....Last years finalists inter and bayern meet again. Last time, inter won under coach Jose Mourinho. But, this time under Rafa Benitez they have looked much less convincing. Also they came runner-up in their group. Meanwhile, like last year Bayern is in a great form and topped their group. Bayern is looking for a revenge. Can they get it...Time will tell... Another mouth-watering fixture is Barcelona vs Arsenal. Last year and also in 2006 CL the spanish team proved too hot to handle for Arsene Wenger's men. Also, under Guardiola's coaching they are at the peak of their form recently...They thrashed Real Madrid 5-0 at Nou Camp.So, its very hard for Arsenal to take their sweet revenge this time. Will they become the Dark Horse of the Tournament????

I am sure that Barcelona and Bayern will qualify. Barcelona is far too good and if nothing special happens, I don't see Arsenal doing too well on Camp Nou. But if Xavi gets injured, then the chances for Arsenal grow. As for Bayern, they were unlucky last season and that is why Inter managed to win against them. Now is time to revenge and if the defense will be more stable we will assist to a great goal difference between these two teams.

Bale showed that inter is vulnerable to Wingplay.Wnigplay is the main strength of Bayern. So, they have a good chance this time...

I think Bayern will win this time. When the matchday come, Arjen has recovered from his injury. Benitez is not Jose Mourinho. He reallly lacks of ideas about how to manage Inter. As long as Ribbey and Robben play, it will be easy for Bayern to beat Inter. As for Barca vs Arsenal, I agree with you all that Barca will beat Arsenal easily. Wenger is confused about who should play as a goalkeeper :-).

Robben hasn't played a single minute this year, but Bayern is still good at scoring. I don't know why everybody thinks that Robben is so good. In reality he is very egoistic and that is why he shoots so many goals. He tries 7-8 times a match, and he scores one. But if he would pass more, Bayern would score more.

I feel sick with this drawing result, since Arsenal has to faced Catalan's giant,think this is the end of their campaign in the champions league. However, I still hope Arsenal became an exception for Barca, and write their own fate. And i think bayern will take their revenge this time.

Barca is on a high now. But in today's world, every football match is competitive. Let's see what happens.

I am hoping Arsenal will put over Barcelona but I think it will be a very uphill task. This is coming from an ardent Arsenal support. As for Inter Milan vs Bayern Munich, I think the German club should win this. This Inter is very different from previous and is suffering from poor form.

Barca vs Arsenal promises to be a very specacular game;I/m sure there wil be plenty of exitement and gols in this clash and Barca will finally triumph because it's simply the best team in the world.I love the way Arsenal play,but they won't win the champions league very soon with such a young team.On the other hand,Inter vs Bayern will probably not be a very open and entertaining fixture,And I think this time Bayern,whose form was impressive in the group stage,will advance to the quarterfinals.

I am picking Bayern to do the number over Inter this time around to get the revenge. I think Inter have gone back under Rafa Benitez. In the other match, I am afraid Barcelona are still too strong for Arsenal. I would love to see Arsenal win at least one leg of the match, but really do not see that happening. Cheers! Ram

I think Arsenal can pull the shocking result against Barca. I know most of the people think Arsenal won't have chances but as an Arsenal Fans, I will believe Arsenal have the chances to reach the final. Arsenal don't have Sylvestre, Campbell and Traore which was slaughter by Messi last year. And the striker is better than last year where last year Arsenal rarely have a striker to play. Cesc is replaceable this year with Nasri becoming better and Rosicky fits. The goalkeeper are more confident and better now. Of course Arsenal can win against Barca. I believe in you Arsenal.

As for me, Arsenal got no chance against the Spanish giant...The team is still young and lack of creativity to create good goal opportunity...They are also still struggling when facing the English best teams...For instance, they lose 1-0 to Manchester United in their last fixture...I can see they are good at attacking, but still vulnerable at the back four, where that is their main strength in the time of 'Invincibles'...Nevertheless, for Bayern they will totally went over Milan...They are a good team...Besides, Milan's performance recently has been poor so I will definitely say Bayern will go through...
