One can say that FC Barcelona was matched with a team that most wanted to avoid, Manchester City (18th Feb - 12th March). This is also true for the English Club which I am sure they too will not to be glad with the result. Atletico de Madrid was matched with AC Milan ( 19th Feb & 11th March ) & beforehand the Spanish Football Club won't be to upset & may see it as a "small blessing". As for Real Madrid most observers believe they got a "lucky break" being matched with German Club Schalke 04 ( 25th Feb & 19th March ) which is a "lesser team" with all due respects to them. Said all this they are all a danger & needed to be respected.
As with the rest of the European Clubs, interesting & great matches ahead as the competition really begins. Win & you advance, loss & your out.
