UEFA Champions League Prediction Contest – 4/6/10

Well, since we now know via Duke’s win over Butler that there is no God, it would be wise to take that into advisement when making your picks for today’s two UEFA Champions League quarterfinal matches – forget fate, go with your gut.

* CSKA Moscow vs. Inter (NOTE: 12:30 p.m. Eastern Kickoff!): Inter did what they had to in the first leg, but they certainly didn’t drop the hammer on CSKA by any means. I’ve wanted to ride the bandwagon here and continue to pick CSKA as they now host the second leg, but I just can’t realistically do it. Inter earns a 1-1 DRAW on the day to advance.

* Barcelona vs. Arsenal (2-2 aggregate so far): This tie looked done and dusted with Barcelona taking a 2-0 lead away last week. But Arsenal found a way to answer back and while they still sit at a disadvantage due to Barcelona’s away goals, they certainly aren’t going to go away quietly. But I think they are going to go away. 3-1 BARCELONA.

Remember, it’s 40 points for the exact score; 20 points for having the winner and the right margin; and 10 points for just having the winner.

Here are the standings to this point. It’s anybody’s game in the battle for the Fighting Talker Signed Soccer Ball:

  1. I’ve been extremely negligent in getting my picks in. No different today, as I’m late on the 1st match.

    CSKA 1 – 2 INTER

    BARCA 3 – 1 ARSENAL

    I’ll go ahead on tomorrow.

    MANU 2 – 1 BAYERN (Bayern on penalties.)

    BORDEAUX 3 – 0 LYON

  2. Barca 2-1 Arsenal
    CSKA 1-1 Inter

    Oh, bugger. The CSKA/Inter game is already over! Well, I’m glad I got it wrong.
