UCL Prediction

There are 4 match of UEFA Champions League 2nd leg match that is held on 9th and 10th March 2010:
1. Arsenal - Porto (1st Leg 1-2)
Arsenal will have to face Porto without Cesc Fabregas. The Arsenal captain got hamstring injury against Burnley. Still, without Fabregas, Arsenal is favourite in this match. In the last match, Samir Nasri proved himself that he could be playmaker too. It's likely for Wenger to put Samir Nasri in line up. Arsenal is also missing William Gallas, and Sol Campbell would be put as Gallas' replacement. Porto isn't a n easy opponent for Wenger's boys but Arsenal will win this game without clean sheet 3-1 for Arsenal

2. Fiorentina - Bayern (1st Leg 1-2)
Fiorentina hasn't been in a good form, and they are only on 11th position, while Bayern hasn't been lost for 19 match and comfortably placed in 1st position in Bundesliga, but Bayern will miss Martin Demichelis because of injury. Fiorentina wants to revenge to Bayern after lost 1-2 in first leg. The referee controversially decided to allow Miroslav Klose's injury time goal to stand although it's clearly an offside goal. Fiorentina will dominate the game, but Bayern would be able to held Fiorentina. 2-2 draw

3. Man. Utd - Milan (1st Leg 3-2)
Man. Utd has a good modal facing the second leg with 3-2 lead. While 0-0 is enough for Man. Utd to go through next round, Milan need at least 2-0 or 4-3 victory to go through next round, so there wouldn't be any other choice than attacking from the first minute. Ronaldinho and Pato would be a very dangerous threat for MU. As the consequences of Milan's attacking strategy, there would be much room for MU to counter attack, especially from Antonio Valencia, or Nani. This match won't ended with a goaless score, but no one would win this match. 2-2

4. Madrid - Lyon (1st Leg 0-1)
Neo Galacticos Madrid would have to win with two goals in this match if they wanna go through next round. Lyon has proven theirself they aren't pushover, but this match is played in Bernabeu, where Madrid only lost once in this venue. With CR9, Kaka, and Higuain, Madrid wouldn't have any problem scoring a goal. Madrid only have problem on the backline. They still rarely got clean sheet result, and their full backs are too often supporting the attack, leaving a hole on the backline. Lyon would be quite defensive and only launch counter attack, but it would be dangerous if the fullbacks are too offensive. If Madrid shows strong mentality again like against Sevilla, Madrid would win this game. 4-1 for Madrid
