My god there's a few teams there you'd want to avoid!

Valencia, Dortmund, Shaktar, Athletic...

Best possibilities there? Braga? Maybe Anderlecht? Or Sparta Prague. I guess those might be the better options.

Well it had to happen sometime. The big positive is we won't have to travel a long way. So that much less fatigue to our players. I quite fancy us against them. We have had pretty decent result against them these last two seasons

Ooh god Liverpool!

Are we the better team? Yes we are. And we have beaten them twice this year already so we should be confident. But it's knock out football and I'd hate for us to blow it to them.

I think I'd rather we went out to some minnow.

Mind you, get through to the quarters and this could open up. Dortmund or Spurs will be gone, Bilbao or Valencia plus maybe one or two surprises.
