The first wave of quarterfinal legs are in the books. Click below for the scores…
Arsenal grabbed a 2-nil edge in Highbury over Juventus, which finished the match with only nine men. Fabergas and Henry netted for the home side. Juve’s task in Turin next week will be made even more difficult due to suspensions to Vieira, Zebina and Camoranesi in the return leg.
Meanwhile, Barcelona and Benefica battled to a scoreless draw. Barcelona returns to the Nou Camp emptyhanded knowing that a road goal for Benefica next week could prove disastrous for their title hopes.
Up tomorrow, Lyon v. AC Milan and Inter v. Villarreal.
