UEFA Champions League Prediction Contest – 4/7/10

The quarterfinals wrap up on Wednesday with a pair of matches to determine which sides will join Barcelona and Inter in the UEFA Champions League semifinals.

* Bordeaux vs. Lyon: Bordeaux have a real tough task here, trying to turn around a 3-1 loss away in the first leg. It’s a lot to ask, and I’m going to back Lyon in this spot. 2-1 LYON.

* Manchester United vs. Bayern Munich: Beaten by a late goal in the first leg, United return to Old Trafford down, 2-1, in this tie, and reeling from a loss to Chelsea over the weekend that took them out of the pole position for a fourth straight Premier League title. I don’t buy the hype that Wayne Rooney might play in this one, but I think they still get the job done. 2-0 MANCHESTER UNITED.

40 points for nailing the score, 20 for having the winner and the right margin, 10 for having the winner. Picks are due by 2:45 p.m. Eastern Wednesday as both games will kick off at that time. Good luck!

    Also, WhitesBhoy already posted his picks for Wednesday in the Tuesday thread, so here they are:

    MANU 2 – 1 BAYERN (Bayern on penalties.)

    BORDEAUX 3 – 0 LYON

  2. I’ll have you know I do believe you’ve hexed me in this contest now.

    *Bordeaux vs. Lyon: 3-1 Lyon

    * Manchester United vs. Bayern Munich: 4-2 Man U

  3. A modest day for most of the folks. One of our new shooters takes top honors on the afternoon as the quarterfinals are complete.

    30 points: WhitesBhoy
    20 points: Lowecifer; Aaron Stollar
    10 points: writered21 (nickel and diming them to death now); nica1004; RegularGuy
    0 points: AAMM; Forza La Juve

    There’s a serious race going on for the Fighting Talker Signed Soccer Ball. Points are 80-40-20 next round, so no one is out of it, and my 61-point lead at the top overall certainly isn’t safe. Keep at it, everyone.
