Champions League 2013-2014: Quarterfinals Second Leg Open Thread

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

Barcelona, Atlético, Bayern and Manchester United are competing for the remaining two places in the Semifinals.

José Mourinho's Chelsea FC and Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid are already thinking about Friday's Champions League Semifinals Draw. But Atlético de Madrid and Barcelona will fight at the Vicente Calderón for one place in that draw. Barça have already complained about the pitch -Old School Xavi Hernández-, and they need to overcome that 1-1 lead that Simeone, Courtois and company have thanks to the away goal at the Camp Nou. Diego Costa will almost certainly miss the game -it'd be a big surprise to see him in the starting lineup-, so Simeone will likely deploy Adrián and Villa.

On the other tie, Guardiola's Bayern Munich will try to keep that same 1-1 lead thanks to Schweinsteiger goal at the Old Trafford. Van Persie and Mata are out, so Rooney will have to fight alone once more. It's a very unlikely task for Moyes' men, but there are still 90 minutes to be played.

As a Real Madrid fan, I want Atlético and United to go through. Why? Well, here's your answer.
