I'll ask those of you who are "more in the know": Was that "the right call"?

50/50 call, I think. I would have called it yellow. I didn't see intent to injure. At the same time, it was a careless play by Nani, raising his foot like that. Anytime you do that and hit a player, you know certain refs will hand out the red card. Shame the game had to be decided like that, though.

Also, it's hard to feel sorry for Man U. I've seen them screw so many poor English teams in similar fashion, especially at Old Trafford. It was good to see a call go against them like that for a change.

Yes there was a lot of debate about the red card, but the general consesus from the experts - especially other referees - is that UEFA wants those tackles to be red cards and that's how they teach them to ref at the international level. In the Premier League or some other national leagues, it's likely that you will see only a yellow for that, but in the Champions League it's going to be a red card.

I thought the "best acting awards" had come and gone; obviously not. The foul appears to glance off the arm and lands on the side of the fouled player, followed by the fouled player falling and grabbing his stomach, not unlike a perp being shot in an episode of Law & Order. Thanks to the Internet, I now know what 999 means in the UK.

The red card was a joke in my opinion. Nani just tried to controll the ball.

Bad call!

But an amazing game from Barca tonight against Milan.

4-0 and a lot of chances.

Many interesting teams have already qualified for the QF.

Juventus Turin

Paris St. Germain

Borussia Dortmund

Real Madrid

FC Barcelona

.

.

Galatasaray Istanbul

With Bayern (i hope) and Malaga/Porto there´ll be 6 really good teams and 2 surprises (Galatasaray and Porto/Malaga).

Barca is Barca, but I can't pick them to win this tournament.

With their defensive troubles on counterattacks, they match up poorly against Bayern, Real and Dortmund.

The next draw will be interesting.

Holy sh...! This was a heartbreaking game the final minutes.

Bayern Munich advances to the QF despite losing to Arsenal 0-2!

Draw for the QF will be this friday with Bayern and Malaga completing the teams.

Such a shame. We were so close. Congrats to Bayern anyway.

You will have a tough time with Juventus I feel. What are your thoughts on that draw?

It's just like Arsenal to have their best game and win of the season, and have it not matter. :tounge:

Gutted no more English sides in the Champions League.

Serves them right for being arrogant and overrated.

Bayern with a 2-0 win over Juve! Great game, best chances to advance to the semi final.

PSG ties the game late against Barca. 2-2

@barciur

Juve wasn´t my favorite choice, but the first leg worked out very well for us!

Will be very interesting. I would prefer a Bayern-Real final!

That's what I envision happening as well, although I'd prefer Barca in the final.

Bayern has the best overall team, with the best season and the fewest weaknesses. Question is, will they finally get over the hump or will they choke again?

You think they'll actually win the Final this time?

Or join Buffalo Bills territory?
