    Crazy that 3 of the 8 remaining teams are Portuguese.

  3. jonk says:

    Villareal have gone up 2-0 on Twente. I only saw the second goal, but it wasn’t Onyewu’s fault.

  4. Mike says:

    Now 3-0….He was involved in the first goal, but I don’t think it was his fault.

  5. jonk says:

    3-0 to Villareal after an ill-advised defensive header
    (not gooch) fell straight to Nilmar 10 yards from goal.

  6. Don Pelayo says:
