Re: Champions League picks and previews 2010-11

Champions League picks and previews 15 and 16 February

- Tuesday -

AC Milan - Tottenham
Both teams have been strong recently, but AC Milan at home at the San Siro should get an advantage ahead of the second leg.
AC Milan to win.

Valencia - Schalke
The two matches between these two in the CL in 2007 ended with a total of 1 goal. I expect this meeting to be close as well.
Less than 2.5 goals.

- Wednesday -

Arsenal - Barcelona
It ended in a 2-2 draw when these two met here last season and I expect another entertaining game with many goals, like it usually is when Barcelona are involved.
More than 2.5 goals.

AS Roma - Shakhtar
AS Roma won 4-0 when these two met here in 2006, but I expect it to be closer this time around. Should be entertaining and many goals.
More than 2.5 goals.
