UEFA Champions League Prediction Contest – 3/9/10

And we’re back, as the UEFA Champions League enters a critical phase today, with the second legs of the Round of 16 ties getting underway.

Today, the schedule features two clubs coming home down 2-1. Arsenal entertains FC Porto, while Fiorentina tries to rally against Bayern Munich.

My picks are below. It’s 20 points for getting the winner and score exact, 10 for getting the margin and the winner, and 5 for just having the winner. Plenty of time for everyone to get back in it, and points will increase every round.

* Arsenal vs. FC Porto: I really want to see Porto finish the job here, but even as they were winning the first leg, I felt that they were going to regret not banging home a third goal. I just can’t picture Arsenal blowing this. 2-0 ARSENAL.

* Fiorentina vs. Bayern Munich: I also really want to see Fiorentina rally back and advance, knocking out Bayern Munich. I can’t really put together a serious soccer reason as to why that will happen – but it’s not as if serious soccer reasoning has often determined my picks. 3-1 FIORENTINA.

Got the picks up a bit earlier this time, so have at it. Good luck to all and they’ll be a new thread for the Wednesday games. The current contest standings are below:

1) 251 – writered21
