Manchester United v Olympiacos

United crashed to a surprise 2-0 defeat in Athens, leaving David Moyes' team with it all to do at Old Trafford. However, Wenger believes it isn't all over just yet for the three-times European champions, and that they can still make it through.

Chelsea v Galatasaray

Chelsea scored an all-important away goal during the first leg in Istanbul which for Wenger puts Jose Mourinho's side firmly in the driving seat ahead of the second leg at Stamford Bridge. The tie is currently weighted 70-30 in favour of Chelsea, Wenger says.

Schalke v Real Madrid

Real's 6-1 win in Gelsenkirchen has all but assured the Spanish club a place in the quarter-finals and Wenger cannot help but marvel at what he describes as Madrid's "amazing offensive power".

Borussia Dortmund v Zenit St Petersburg

According to Wenger, another shoo-in to go through are Dortmund, whose commanding 4-2 lead makes their home leg against Zenit St Petersburg close to a formality.
