Four Champions, Two Winners / Wednesday Champions League Open Thread

Four teams, four champions, two winners.

Could we possibly have another Nico sighting today?

Barring any miracles, each of tonight's Champions League participants will be crowned winners of their respective leagues at the end of this season. Among the four them, that will make 78 domestic league titles. Impressive, although less so for PSG, who will contribute with just a paltry three.

The fashionable Paris outfit currently has a seven point lead on Marseille. They also hold a rather fortunate 2-2 home leg draw in these quarterfinals, which makes them the decided underdogs tonight in Barcelona - less decided, of course, if Lionel Messi cannot or does not play. Could be interesting, although with just Zlatan rather than Zorres on the team, what chance does PSG really have?

Across the Mediterranean Sea, in Turin, Juventus will hope to overturn an 0-2 first leg deficit versus last year's beaten finals (HAHA!) Bayern Munich. It's no small task to be sure, with the German outfit having already wrapped this year's Bundesliga by virtue of a 20-point lead on second place Borussia Dortmund with six matches to go.

Should the favorites advance tonight, the Champions League Final Four will read: Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund. Spain vs. Germany! It's Euro 2008 all over again! It's World Cup 2010 semifinals all over again!
