The club Arsenal loves to poach from made it to the quarter-finals and also thumbed their nose at UEFA at the same time. Isco, who I hope Arsenal can poach scored a beauty and old man Roque n' Roll Santa Cruz (Mark Hughes where are you?) scored four minutes after coming on as a sub.
Porto played a man down most of the second half as Steven Defour picked up his second booking when he tripped up Joaquin.
The UEFA draw on will be held this Friday. The eight marching onto the quarter-finals include Borussia Dortmund, CF Malaga, Bayern Munich, Paris St Germain, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Galatasaray, Juventus. Yes, no English club in there. For the first time in 17 years there will be no English representation in the last eight. Blip or trend?
