Liverpool is not the best team in the world right now. During the autumn maybe, but lately they have been mediocre in attack :(

Juve-Atletico might be a nice game, the first one was at least so definitely watching this pair. Even though the first one was a bit of a Atletico show I wouldn't discount Juve.
I'm a bit surprised Schalke is still even playing, let alone getting 2 goals in the first, but I guess City should have it

Barca should win, but the history in the Champions League in the recent years doesn't give confidence.
But of course watching Bayern-Liverpool who managed to loll a tie. Now someone has to win it.

Atletico, Barca, ManCity, Bayern is my guess.

But I would be amazed if Lyon and/or Schalke would manage a lucky punch. Not because I dislike Barca(kind of dislike ManCity though) but because seeing the underdog win like Ajax and ManU is always nice

Small rant after I made my girlfriend sit through 2 hours of me cursing at the TV:
First half was fairly balanced allthough I would say Bayern had a small edge in the overall impression. Genius move by Mané doing the 0:1, but to be fair, no one knows what lunatic shit Neuer was doing there ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Was impressed how Bayern came back, even though it was Matip being unlucky, Lewandowski was right behind him. After that I was fairly optimistic for the second half.
But I gotta say, as diehard fan of Bayern, Liverpool was brilliant in the second half. Not so much with their goals. The 1:2 was stupid of Bayern, not having anyone at the goalpost at a corner when Liverpool has the aerial advantage. What was so damn impressive was their pressing. It was even two levels higher as their pressing at Anfield a few weeks ago and in the first half. Klopp must have given a hell of a speech in halftime.
Bayern was a bit unlucky with Lewandowski missing the cross of Gnabry in the second half by centimeters. Game could have gone a whole different way if that would have been in, but as the cookie crumbled Liverpool really deserved that win. and the 1:3 was just a display of how well Mané and Salah work together.
All in all a bit sad about the outcome, but losing against Liverpool in that kind of form(in the second half) is understandable.

So, in the end, we have 4 teams from england in the quarter finals and none from france and germany.
The obvious favourites would be, in my opinion: Manchester City, Liverpool, Juventus and Barcelona.
I don't think Ajax can make it all the way through, especially if they meet Juventus on the way, because i think the way they play seems the most uncomfortable for a team like Ajax.
Since i'm a Barcelona fan for 2 decades now, i would, off course, like them to win, and they have the players to do it, but they seem so inconsistent at times so it all depends on their form.
I would like a Liverpool - Barcelona draw for the quarter finals since it would probably be a goal fest and a pleasure to watch for any football fan.

Why would one like to have the real thrillers in the quarters already? Would be a shame if they drew Manu vs Porto for example, I hope for ManU, Ajax, Porto and Tott to get one of bronn's favorites to have awesome awesome potential semis.

To Bayern: the away game was great no doubt. Holding this attacking 3 at zero goals is an achievement. The home game was where it all went to shite.
The midfield was bad, Thiago and James being a tiny touch to slow or inaccurate in most situations when a good counter attacking chance presented. Javi was good at collecting balls but to then carry it on and distributing was never his strong suit. The loss of Kimmich was huge imo because the play out of the own half was way better with him. Rafinha is a decent defender but not as creative and precise with the game in front of him. Lewandowski stumbled over the ball twice with a 1vs1 with the last defender at hand, atrocious. And let's not talk about Neuer trying to pick flowers in front of his box. All things considered Liverpool deserved it because they won one half in dominant fashion. And I am not taking that away from them, the last goal was perfection.
I am sad.

Nice hat trick from Messi, and a nice reaction by the home crowd to give a standing ovation.

But Suarez's goal and the defending before it had me laughing
