    Weeeh. Why Twente! Why!

    The first half went so well. The second half sucked.

    Ahwell, we still have AZ in the race.

    Ended 3-2 with a narrow miss from Joe Hart at the end. City out on away goals.

    Also Birmingham City have won more games this season in Europe than Manchester United :lol:

    There were 3-0 down on aggregate, scored 3 in the last twenty minutes, then Joe Hart almost won it with a header, with the last touch of the game.

    Oh so both Manchester sides out then, and Chelsea the sole representative in Europe. Not a good season to demonstrate the quality of English football. Interesting fact about Birmingham, they did rather well.

    Sporting almost choked! I saw the last 30min. I heard from the folks at the bar I went to that soon as Sporting took out Capel they just went flat. Hart almost pinged a header in at the last attempt!!

    Good luck Sporting from advancing through, good for Portuguese soccer as it always gets overlooked by the big clubs in big leagues

    AZ - Valencia
    Schalke 04 - Athletic Bilbao
    Sporting Lissabon - Metalist Charkov
    Atletico Madrid - Hannover 96


    3 Spanish teams with the last 8. Hmm.

    My picks:

    Valencia
    Athletic Bilbao
    Sporting
    Atletico Madrid

    Then Valencia sees Atletico Madrid in the final.

    AZ - Valencia
    Got to say Valencia as they're probably the best team in the Europa League.

    Schalke 04 - Athletic Bilbao
    If Athletic Bilbao can beat Manchester United, then they should beat Schalke.

    Sporting - Metalist
    I'l say Sporting but this can go either way.

    Atletico Madrid - Hannover 96
    I fancy Hannover for this, maybe just because I'm fed up of the Spanish dominance.

    To be honest, none of these games have a heavy favourite and it'd be complete luck if these predictions were right.

    Well, 2-2 now, 2 each for Raul and Llorente. Bilbao should not be on terms, Schalke have been the better team, Bilbao not playing well but still in it. Suspect they might walk it at home on a nice pitch.

    EDIT: Well Bilbao are now winning, they've come alive since the second goal, bit lucky but they've started to play football now. Schalke have it all to do both in the last 5 minutes and at Bilbao next week.

    EDIT2: Games over and it's 4-2, smash and grab on the break with Munian finishing after Schalke have thrown men forward. Both Huntelaar and Raul had good chances to score in the final couple of minutes. That second goal for Bilbao completely changed the game.

    Athletic Club is tying 2-2 with Schalke. Everything is going according to plan.

    All Iberian semifinal, YET AGAIN!!

    Last year it was 3 Portuguese clubs and 1 Spanish club. This year it's flip flopped, 3 Spanish clubs and 1 Portuguese club.

    Atletico Madrid smashed Valencia 4-1 with my boy Falcao scoring 2 goals.
    And Sporting!!! come from behind win 2-1 over Atletico Bilbao!! I thought Sporting wouldn't have a chance but it seems they can actually go into the final!!!

    I'm predicting Atletico Madrid X Sporting Lisbon final with Atletico Madrid winning it, but I'll be hoping Sporting takes it for back to back Portuguese teams winning the Europa League!

    I hope Atlético get through to the semi-finals, along with Bilbao, though the latter is rather difficult.

    We can share him... no homo :p

    My Porto seriously misses his scoring abilities up top, that's for sure!!! I heard a lot about him and saw quite a lot of highlights before he even went to Europe. Was really glad he came and had such an epic season last year by helping Porto win everything possible, go undefeated in the league and clinching the league title at rivals Benfica stadium!

    Too bad I couldn't see Bielsa's match, since I had work to do for tomorrow (and I still haven't finished it). But I'm very glad for him! :D

    Bielsa, all the River Plate fans are with you! :cheers:

    So, we are four hours away from the 2012 UEFA Europa League Final. I won't be able to see it because I will be gone from home at that time. I thought it would be important to bring this thread back up, in case anyone forgot about the final.
