    They have had some good results at home in recent times especially against Barca. They're capable of taking on any team when they feel like it and they have players who can just make things happen with their ability. Berizzo is doing a great job there.

    They are very unpredictable, hence their position in the table, but you are right in their day they can beat any team. The game Real Madrid has in hand is against Celta, and you wouldn't find many Real Madrid fans thinking is going to be easy.

    They play good football as well so hopefully they can show what they're capable of. I'm excited to see what the likes of Sisto and Aspas do against United and Real.

    I get the feeling that they are going to give UTD a torrid time.

    Celta are probably better than Ajax and I'd fancy Lyon to beat United more in a one off game than over two legs

    Can't see anything other than more Spanish dominance in both comps.

    Atletico probably do have a better chance over two legs againt Real then in the final, but then saying that if you look at the two finals they played each other it wasn't straight forward for Real. The score line from the first one looks that way, but Atletcio were winning going into added time. The second one it was penalties that decided it, so Atletico more then held their own during the additional 90 minutes.

    Still it would have probably ended 1-1 after 90 minutes Ramos O.G. and Ronaldo penalty, and then Real win 2-1 in the 120th minute against the 10 men with Gareth Bale scoring the winner in his home country, with the goal and his image being replayed through out the year and bookies stop taking bets on him winning sports personality, while Man Utd get linked with him.

    Has anyone started the conspiracy theories yet that they fixed the draw as they want this final, yet if they drew each other then the conspiracy theories would be it was fixed to ensure one of them makes it and to not have a final against two teams who have never won it.

    No it won't. They have won the same number as Nottingham Forest.

    Monaco and Juventus are both aiming to win the treble, although Monaco's treble dreams could end next week against PSG who ended their Quadruple chances in the other week the League Cup Final.

    Celta are not beating united in a major semi final. They're the worst team left in the comp. Lyon or Ajax will win the comp.

    If united get to the final they will win it. They are different to us in that sense

    Celta are average. I know we hate united but they're miles ahead of Celta. Anybody can cause an upset but I'd expect united to win comfortably.

    Utd will win this no doubt in my mind. Spawny gits had an easy cup final, which they jammed, and a pretty simple route to the final. Compare it to us last year, no comparison. Their fans will gloat like mad abt how they could do what we couldnt and abt how amazing Jose is etc. You just know it. It's just the way the universe works unfortunately!

    They are not your typical midtable side though. Not many sides can play so well one week and so poorly the next quite like them. They can take on United.

    Lyon and Monaco doing Ligue 1 proud this season. Really want Monaco to win it. Best attacking team in Europe.

    On paper yeah but look at last night against Anderlecht, a team with a bit more savvy and energy woulda dumped them on their arses.

    It's getting anoying now, just please somebody beat them, don't care who ust beat them

    Celta aren't that team in my opinion. Lyon or Ajax would have been. Celta were also average vs Genk.

    They'll lose in the final as we done last season

    I'm not saying United are not favourites but Celta aren't as hopeless as you are making them to be

    They're not hopeless but they're average. Everton are better than them.

    I don't think your opinion on Spanish teams is overly trustworthy mate, its driven by a slight agenda with the whole and many La Liga/Prem League debates previously.

    Celta are well capable of beating Utd, but over two legs will take some doing I agree.

    But the prospect of Celta beating Utd is not wholly laughable really considering how much Utd have huffed and puffed all season and struggled against very modest opposition both home and abroad
