For me Malaga definetley no.. They didn't impress me in the Ac Milan match. Milan will beat them home.. As for Shakhtar and Dortmund.. They looked fabulous, i was shocked how shakhtar dominated chelsea, their quality in midfield and atack it's impressing.. Both Juve and Chelsea underestimated the Ukraine side and look what happened.. Dortmund it's not a surprise anymore after winning the league against bayern.
I don't think any of them will reach the semi-finals but not because the lack of quality

I hope Shakhtar and Juve go through, and if that happens, i see Shakhtar doing well. Schalke also i see doing well. They both are quality teams that can beat practically anyone on their day. Look at Shakhtar against Juve and Chelsea, plus Barxa a few seasons ago. Look at Schalke a few seasons ago against Inter, now against Dortmund and Arsenal.

I dont consider Dortmund and Juve as darkhorses, but if you do, then i think they will go very far. I hope Juve win it and i think were capable of it.

Schalke and Shaktar IMHO. I'd say Dortmund, but 1) they're not surprising anymore, having won the league twice, and 2) they'll get unlucky again, like they did the past two seasons, and like they were against City in the end.

i think shakhtar wont pose that much of a challenge in the knockouts, they arent that impressive away .

dortmund for me the true dark horses.

SHakhtar, Schalke, and Malaga sounds about right. I wouldn't count Dortmund as dark horses, they are too good to be dark horses.

Then again, Dortmund hasn't done shit in European football for ages, so maybe they still deserve the title...

Jiopsi wont let me suggest mikhoweveryouspellhisnameian for the most effective player of season Sad

Dortmund winning would still surprise the f out of everyone - nearly everyone makes fun of Bayern losing to an opponent from an inferior league.

I doubt Dortmund will embarrass themselves - Klopp has matured in international competition and while Dortmund still suffers from woeful finishing a full strength Dortmund are definately CL "dark horses", their approach to the Madrid game showed that.

I think Shakhtar, Malaga, Dortmund etc can reach the semis.

Depends on the draw though.

Porto, should win their group and get a decent draw as a result.

But, a Schalke-Dortmund final would be epic or just even a QF meeting.

i have, but juve have had a lot of problems of their own , and i definitely think shakhtar are beatable without that much of effort when contrasted with a team like dortmund

Shakhtar are beatable but they're looking like a real strong, collective team..

they also have a few high-calibre attackering players like Willian, who are individually good enough to change a game

Revierderby in the Champion's League? Holy shit, they'd burn down the entire Ruhr area. It would be... Awesome! Very Happy
