This was the toughest away game for Lyon and they did well. Should have won it in FT but its cool. Now they have 3 matches to save their season. Hope they get United. Alex will twat them.

Agree with both of these. Don't see anyone good enough to beat the Mancs though.
You're surely joking. They could hardly beat Anderlecht, probably the easiest opponent in the last 8.

Ajax and Lyon will be big challenges for them, so I suspect they'll draw Celta Vigo. And then we'll need Agent Aspas to come through and deliver. They've only been given the title of "favourites" because they're Manchester United, and the world's most expensive team on paper looks nice. Their football is pretty poo

I wont pretend I've watched the other 3 teams a lot, but after what I saw tonight, I'm sure whoever Utd get have every chance to knock them out. Lyon have some very talented players like Lacazette who will give them a lot more trouble than Anderlecht did.
I would honestly let Wijnaldum jizz in my face right now

Hope Utd get a home draw first. Much tougher playing the first leg at home.

I know you can only play what is in front of you but they've had such an easy route in this competition.

Like I said before, it'll be down to one of Ajax/Lyon to make a miracle of it and beat them in a one off final. They otherwise wouldn't over two legs.

Underestimating Celta would be a very foolish thing to do. They knocked Real Madrid out of the Copa Del Rey over 2 legs and beat Barcelona at home earlier in the season. They're very inconsistent but they can beat absolutely anybody. United will obviously start favourites but don't dismiss Celta.

Actually, Celta is the worst opponent for the Mancs from the remaining teams. Unlike Lyon or Ajax, teams that like to play attacking football, Celta know how to sit back and kill you on the counter attack. Their defence is pretty settled and experienced, especially their Argentinian pair of central defenders. And Berizzo is a very good tactician who will frustrate Maureen.

Although Ajax are full of young promising talent, I think they'd shit the bed having to go to Old Trafford. Celta are more experienced and would handle that pressure better imo.

I'm surprised at the lack of whinging about an easy draw for United, which is good as none of the teams left are easy. Celta are a good side and it's win-win for us anyway as long as they can't get into the top four. Hopefully they don't win it but more games puts more pressure on them.

I am not sure why people are discrediting Celta, they are more capable of beating United than Ajax or Lyon. They are inconsistent however they know how to play in big games and have beaten better sides than United. This is the worst draw remaining for them

Bah. Lyon would have ripped these apart, with the bare-bones defense they have now. Tolisso, Lacazette, Fekir and Valbuena would have had a field day over two legs with this United side.

it's cos May 4th is a rememberance day in Holland, with ceremonies, and a silence is always held a 8pm, including on TV / radio I believe.

so the game has been moved to the day before, and an early kickoff so it doesn't clash with the CL game.

Haven't followed Ajax properly the last couple of seasons, I used to love watching them around 2008-2012.

Seems like they have more new talents in Sanchez, Ziyech and Dolberg (who's just scored as I type this!). Good to see!
