Champions League predictions: Chelsea to triumph?

Can Carlo Ancelotti guide Chelsea to European glory?
Can Carlo Ancelotti guide Chelsea to European glory?

The draw for the quarterfinals of the European Champions League, according to many pundits, has set Barcelona on a collision course with arch-rivals Real Madrid for the final four. Some even suggested the winner of this explosive, if mooted, semifinal would go on to lift the European Cup at Wembley on May 28.

I would like to offer a different opinion.

While there is no doubt in my mind that Barca and Real are the world’s two best teams, but there are factors that lead me to believe the winner of the Champions League may actually come from the other side of the bracket. Yes, the side containing Inter Milan and Chelsea.

Why do I believe these two teams have what it takes to win the title? Two words: momentum and drive.

Let’s start with the defending champions. I was fortunate enough to be at the Allianz Arena when the Nerazzuri knocked Bayern out of the competition in the round of 16. After a tumultuous first half, featuring some kamikaze defending, Inter showed the passion, drive and discipline that characterized the side’s victorious march to the European crown last year. This was a very similar team to the one commanded by Jose Mourinho last season, and it will be a dangerous proposition in this competition. It still has a lot of talent and a lot of experience.

Following a disappointing start to the season with Rafa Benitez, who made all the wrong moves trying to change what had been a successful blueprint with Mourinho, Inter have stormed back. Since Leonardo became coach, the Nerazzuri have won 14 of 19 games in all competitions. That is a success rate of 74%. Impressive.

I believe the momentum gained since the Brazilian coach’s arrival will help catapult Inter to the semifinals of the competition. And if momentum is the force that drives Inter, then it is drive that will fuel Chelsea’s fire.

This is a team that was assembled by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich and Jose Mourinho with one goal in mind: to win the European Cup. The Blues came close twice. They reached the semifinals in 2005 and the final in 2008 when they agonizingly lost on penalties to Manchester United.

If you compare the team that lost three years ago in Moscow to the one that is lining up currently, you will find that not too much has changed. The spine of the team is still the same. Petr Cech, John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba are all still leading the charge.

This is a side that has had to live with the frustration of missing out on football’s top prize and can’t wait to lift the European Cup. The fact the final is in London, is another reason why in my mind, they are a very dangerous team to face in this competition.

You are probably thinking that if I am picking Chelsea as a title contender, then I am assuming they will beat Manchester United in the quarterfinals. The answer to that question is yes.

Just like I predicted at the beginning of the season, United will go on to win the English Premier League title, but they are not strong enough to beat Chelsea in a two-legged tie right now. Their midfield is not good enough to win Europe’s top prize and whoever lines up in the middle of the park for them will not be able to deal with Jon Obi Mikel, Michael Essien, Ramires and Lampard. That is a fact. Add to that Wayne Rooney’s struggles and you find that the three-time European Cup champions will be no match for Carlo Ancelotti’s boys.

So, on we go. Imagining I am right and Chelsea and Inter meet in the semifinals, what do I expect to happen next? Well, I without wanting to dodge the question, I think Chelsea will go through and face Barcelona in the final.

And then … then anything can happen, because as dominant as Barcelona have been this season, I believe they are tired and won’t be at their best in two months’ time. Pep Guardiola hasn’t rotated his squad enough to guarantee they will be fresh at the end of May when the trophy is decided. Chelsea’s physical style could rattle the Spanish giants just like it did two seasons ago in the semis. And in one game on English turf, the Blues could upset the almighty Barca.

    Just as last week Mr. Pinto is wrong again! First of all I doubt whether Chelsea will advance to the semis as I do think ManU is the stronger side. Second, Real and Barca are too dominant as that either Barca or Real would lose against either Inter or Chelsea in the final.

    Chelsea is strong but they lack winning tradition. I believe that ultimately it will be Real or Barcelona that will lift the title.

    Barça has a good team, but Real has the Mourinho effect. He seldom loses.
    Manchester has no chance.

    Dear Pedro,

    I check your column regularly and I usually enjoy it, but I have to say I am puzzled at this. You are the same person who said not so long ago that Man. U. would win the premier league at the expense of Chelsea. Yuou argument was that Chelsea was too old and tired. Now you say that they will win the Champions League and beat much better teams to it. Barcelona tired? La Liga is certainly physically demanding, but so is the Premiership, and both Barcelona and Real Madrid have younger yet experienced teams. Who is not to say that in two months time it will be Chelsea feeling the pinch?

    That's a figment of your imagination! Man. United will beat Chelsea in a two-legged tie any day. The only thing that separated the two sides weeks back was the terrible Martin Atkinson who's stock-in-trade is to give Chelsea a soft penalty all the time. People have failed to give United the credit they deserve this term. You underate them at your peril!

    yes i am a Chelsea fan and naturally love this analysis. however, i think he is right some how. i still dont believe that Chelsea cannot clinch the EPL this season. Everything is possible.

    United will beat Chelsea and in the CL and would have beaten them earlier if not for a bad ref..Chelsea made a huge mistake by choosing Torres over Luiz to be eligible for the CL. Also, by the time the CL starts United should be almost completely healthy. That is why United will win..

    Looks like young Pedro, (or is it Peetroo??) has it all sussed out. What he completely doesn't take into account is how each and every game is a new roll of the dice, and has NOTHING to do with current form, momentum, drive or passion. You think when Manchester United obliterated Arsenal in the semi-final a couple of years ago people didn't think that having also taken out Barca the year before that in the semi-final, that they wouldn't also rip them apart again in the final, especially with Tevez, C Ronaldo and Rooney in attack, with Scholes, Carrick, Fletcher in mid-field and Rio in defense? No, they were totally humiliated in the final by Barca, in a game which actually surprised more people by Uniteds limp performance, having killed Arsenal the game before. Do you see what I'm saying? Current form, or upcoming form according to your so called 'that is a fact' intuition, is quite frankly a joke.

    I have to agree with must of what you said except the reational behind Chelsea winning the finals.

    If being tired is what's going to make Barca lose, then you haven't been following them closely. One of the reason why Pep makes few rotations is because his team doesn't make the physical efforts other teams like Real do. That's what happens when you have almost 70% most of the time.. you don't have to run after the ball.

    And Mourinho losing to the team he built? Highly unlikely to my accounts

It ends here, because of the way that your rather faulted argument goes,those that don't understand football would be lead to believe that mommentum plays football matches.Really mister pedro, what an uneducated arguement.if you said you would like to see chealsea in the final because that is the team you rooting for, then I would have some respect for this your very pointless article.

    Pedro can go ahead and postulate but in Sir Alex Ferguson we have a man who can grind water out of a stone. Never mind that Chelsea have beaten United through very painful and questionable refereeing once already this season. Chelsea cannot beat united four times in one season. It will not matter that they need this one more than anything. it is exactly that hunger for a revenge that will be there undoing. My prediction is a draw with an away goal at the Bridge. United beats teams because they play as a unit and have belief. Chealsea is a bunch of talented but individual players. I hope Pedro you can catch my drift.

    Earlier this season you wrote that Chelsea is too old and tired to win the Premier League. You also said the Premier League is in crisis and its clubs are not fit to scrub the boots of Barcelona and Real Madrid. But now Chelsea, a team that could possibly end the season as the 3rd, 4th, or 5th best team in England, will win the Champions League! Where's the consistency in your opinion? A couple of good games and your predictions do a 180! That's schoolboy logic. Chelsea has done nothing this season to even be sure of getting past United in a two-leg tie, let alone Inter and Barcelona. But that's alright for you. You tipped Bayern Munich to win it last week, so if Chelsea fail you can just move on to the next remaining club. You'll get it right in the end.

    real will have although game against spurs but i hope real will win.

CHELSEA have touched the root of their problem and now they are enjoying football stability if you envy CHELSEA you can only do urself the favour, write ur club tell them to reinforce their team with new strong willed and ambitious players.

    In the premiership Manu thrive on referee favouritism and sitting back and getting the opponents on the counter, this I don't think can work in the Champion's league against Chelsea. Chelsea are surely not going to let Manu sleep past them like in 2008. Then Mourinho is not going to give Barcelona breathing space incase the two meet again.

    Inter is weak as the past couple weeks have shown in both the league and in Europe. Inter will probably put up a better fight vs Schalke who will not probably lose by enough to drop to inter especially in Germany, btw you didn't even mention them in your article a disrespect that will see them through to the semis. Also if the past has said anything Chelsea is weak vs United in Europe and it will be proved again as they take their away goal to Old Trafford where they have not lost yet in the league (yes i know its harder in Europe but their home form is all wins and 1 draw in the league). Real and Barca will clash and it will be a great 2 games hopefully. The winner however in my mind will be homegrown this year as to both Chelsea and United, granted they get through Schalke are used to playing at Wembley where they have played more than any of the other teams.
