UEFA Champions League Prediction Thread – 3/31/10

The other half of the quarterfinals begin Wednesday afternoon as Arsenal hosts Barcelona and Inter welcomes CSKA Moscow.

Yesterday’s results proved nearly impossible for most of the group to pick, but there was a major move via the Lyon-Bordeaux game that has changed the standings near the top and given us a new leader for the Fighting Talker Signed Soccer Ball. There’s plenty of time and points available for everyone to make a similar move, so keep at it.

* ARSENAL v. BARCELONA: I think Barcelona is the beter team. I can’t root for Arsenal. I can’t pick Arsenal. It wouldn’t make any sense to pick against Barcelona. Right? Right?? Screw it. 2-1 ARSENAL.

* INTER v. CSKA MOSCOW: Inter should win this, but something about the team right now scares me and I can’t quite peg what it is. I’m going to go against the grain here (I think it is, anyway). 1-0 CSKA.

Remember, 40 points for nailing the score exactly, 20 points for having the winner and the correct margin, 10 points for simply having the winner.

Both games kick off at 2:45 p.m. Eastern, so picks in the Comments section below will lock at that time.

Here are the current standings:

1) 281 – writered21
2) 217 – nica1004
3) 210 – RegularGuy
4) 180 – Aaron Stollar
5) 121 – dkstones
