Adriano got an injury to his knee yesterday. He might not be able to play both the matches against AC Milan. We ll know smth more after the x-ray tests.
Without Adriano Inter has got much fewer chances to defeat their rivals in Europe

I think Munich will knock off Chelsea. If Chelsea aren't kicked out of Champions League.

Munich has great players, best goalie in Oliver Kahn. Amazing defender in Lucio and R. Kovac and Kuffour off bench. Great midfield with Ballack, Frings, Ze Roberto, and 2 of best strikers in world, Makaay and Pizarro.
Santa Cruz is also great but I think he is injured. The key will be for Munich to control the midfield which they didn't do against Arsenal, they were destroyed in the possession category.
FORÇA BARÇA!

They might kick them out because they were lieing about Frisk throwing the game away.

well there could have been game deciding calls for either team. it depends on how you look at it. you see at as unfair because you're a barcelona fan, and i see it as normal because i like chelsea.

Drogba should have been sent off, Valdes had to go to the hospital for that incident.

how can u lose respect for a ref that cares for his own life, fans can be crazy man.
Wow, he just megged three people, maradonas around the last defender, and missed the shot, then not five minutes later a guy on the other team shoots when he gets the ball and scores...

He should quit then, everyone thinks he is the best referee, the best referee would have made that call, and Barcelona fans must be pissed now.

It infuriates me to see Chelsea get off with a minor penalty (A 2-match ban for Mourinho and a 9,000 pound fine.) Not only did they ruin a great potential draw, but they also ruined the career of a ref.

I hope they get some points docked from their premiership campaign for the Ashley Cole incident.

Chelsea willl go out by way of Bayern. I think the rumor of Mourinho wanting to leave might have an affect on the team. Also, Makaay's and Ballack's work ethic may wear Chelsea's defense away (hopefully.)

I am hoping Lyon can win, and they have a decent chance at it. Essien is great (thank god he has an interest in joining Arsenal), and Wiltord is much better since joining Lyon from the Gunners.
