UEFA Champions League Prediction Thread – 2/17/2010

Two more matches today after yesterday’s results seemed to trip some folks up a bit (especially me).

The other four Round of 16 ties get underway next week with the staggered schedule, so we’ll have to settle for Bayern Munich v. Fiorentina and FC Porto v. Arsenal today.

* Bayern Munich v. Fiorentina: Much like Tiger, it seems like wherever Fiorentina go, they find ways to score. Munich have dumped what seeme to be an early-season slump domestically and are a right pick to do damage here. 3-1 MUNICH.

* FC Porto v. Arsenal: A month ago, if I had this game to pick, it would have been the Gunners by a landslide, and that may still happen. It’s hard to know for me which is the real Arsenal team – the one that were somewhat ran off the pitch by Manchester United, or the one that defeated Liverpool. I still feel like this is a game they should win, so I guess I’m (hesitantly) leaning toward the latter. 2-1 ARSENAL.

Remember, 20 points for an exact scoreline; 10 for the winner + margin or calling a draw; 5 for simply having the winner.

Let’s hope we all do better today! Here are the standings entering today’s matches:

1) 206 – writered21
t2) 165 – aaronstollar
t2) 165 – RegularGuy
4) 117 – nica1004
5) 101 – dkstones
6) 65 – Lowecifer
7) 60 – tomwilhelm
8) 52 – FlashMan
9) 16 – FFCinPCB
t10) 10 – BusbyBoy74
