Liverpool should still get through comfortably enough, the proper European teams have decent away records 1 point from 9 doesn't suggest that Benfica travel that well, in fact 8 points from 18 isn't exactly a great return either, shows how poor a group it was when such a low amount of points qualifies. Plus methinks it will be a lot stronger looking Liverpool team that takes the pitch at Anfield in 2 weeks.

Yeah you should, anyway onto tonight's action and again some tasty looking fixtures, no more so than at Stamford Bridge, where Cheslea host Barcelona, Barca are sounding pretty pathetic with all their whingeing about the pitch, Puyol was at it and then you wonder about Rijkaard when he says we're not complaining. Should keep an eye on his players then. Think Barca will still take there's enough class to be able to deal with the surface. They seem to have a strange way of making a point though by training for more than their allocated hour and Chelsea complained to UEFA and had them removed. No small amount of needle involved in this one.

Elsewhere Rangers take on Villareal but seriously shouldn't pose Villareal any problems, might make a game of the first leg but that'll be about it as far as their challenge goes.

The other interesting tie of the night sees Ajax host Inter Milan, this one could go either way and don't think it'll be over after this first leg, think there'll be goals in this one though.

Juventus should have a fairly easy ride against Werder Bremen, they were the worst of the qualifiers with 7 points and with such a pitiful amount don't deserve to have qualified especially when in the past teams with 10 points have been eliminated in the group stages.
