Estudiantes is going to be such a tough game. They will play the most anti-football possible and this will frustrate us.

We will have serious trouble with them. I hope we that luck does not desert us then and there.

I thought the Estudiantes match could be the final. So the final will be (probably) against the Asian champion. That will be too easy. It doesn't make sense.

Read the post again. It's Barca in one semifinal and Estudiantes in another. It will surely be Barca Estudiantes in the final though!
