Champions League play-off draw

The draw for the Champions League 2011-12 1/16th play-off took place today with the following pairings:
  • AC Milan-Arsenal
  • Napoli-Chelsea
  • CSKA Moscow-Real Madrid
  • Apoel Nicosia-Olympique Lyon
  • Basel-Bayern Munich
  • Benfica-Zenit St. Petersburg
  • FC Barcelona-Bayer Leverkusen
  • Olympique Marseille-Inter Milan
Some very interesting matches indeed! In particular the big matches between English and Italian sides, as well as Marseilles' clash with Inter Milan, and if Basel can continue its surprises against Bayern Munich!

two of the quaterfinals will be the classic:
Barca- Chelsea
Real - Lyon

the other two will be:
Bayern - Benfica
Inter - Milan

That will give us the semifinals:
Bayern - Milan
Real - Barca

and a final:
Real - Bayern
which Bayern will win

no too bad huh - what are the odds?
