Liverpool v PSV (first leg 3-0)

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard
Liverpool's quality players have gelled
This game is over, which is a shame in a way because it's the quarter-finals of the European Cup and there'll be a big crowd at Anfield wanting to see a match.

But I think Liverpool will just kill it so it's a nothing match and Rafael Benitez's side can look forward to playing the winner of the Valencia-Chelsea quarter-final.

Liverpool have high hopes of going all the way in this competition and you can see why. For starters, they are a much better side than they were when they won it two years ago.

They've been playing well in big games at home. They may have lost to Manchester United and Barcelona but they played exceptionally well both times and if they play like that at Anfield in the semi-finals, they'll be happy.

Their quality players have really gelled, they're starting to score goals and they're keeping clean sheets. It's a potent combination.

Bayern Munich v AC Milan (first leg 2-2)

What a first leg it was: plenty of goals and incidents.

With those two away goals, you'd expect Bayern to go through which I think is bad news for Manchester United.

I think Sir Alex Ferguson would rather be up against AC Milan, especially with the second leg scheduled to be away.

It would be interesting to watch Owen Hargreaves playing against Manchester United considering he's still being tipped to join the club in the summer!
