Two more Round of 16 ties begin this afternoon, after a couple of matches yesterday that proved challenging for most. You can see the results in the comments from yesterday’s thread.
Here’s a look at today’s schedule:
* Inter v. Chelsea: Well this is one that more than a couple people are looking forward to, I imagine. Can’t seem to remember why. … But the only thing that real matters are the teams on the field, and as much as I hate to admit it, there’s an edge for Chelsea here, I think. Not a big one, and not one that is going to lead to some kind of lopsided scoreline today. Even if outclassed, you wouldn’t figure Inter to post a complete stinker at home. But I do think Chelsea does what it needs to do here to make the second leg much more comfortable. 2-1 CHELSEA.
* CSKA Moscow v. Sevilla: While no one was picking Sevilla to win La Liga, they were a bit of a trendy pick to take second if one of the powerhouses fell off a bit this season. That hasn’t happened, and Sevilla hasn’t lived up to billing, despite sitting fourth in the table – 16 points back of Barcelona, and four back of third-placed Valencia. Most teams would take 13-7-3 and move on, but it’s probably a bit disappointing for this side. I can’t say I know much about CSKA, but I have to think of the road matches Sevilla could have drawn here, this might not have been their favorite. I’m going to give CSKA a shooter’s chance in this one, but Sevilla will have an edge into the second leg. 2-2 DRAW.
NOTE: This match kicks off at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.
Remember, it’s 20 points for getting the exact result; 10 for having the winner and margin; 5 for simply having the winner.
Picks for the CSKA-Sevilla match are due by 12:30 p.m. Eastern. Picks for Inter-Chelsea are due by 2:45 p.m. Eastern.
