UEFA Cup Round of 16 Recap

The first leg of the Round of 16 was completed yesterday, and below are scores and highlights via Footytube and elsewhere.

Even with the exception of Bayern's demolition of Anderlecht, the away teams fared pretty well. PSV and Getafe won their matches, Sporting drew 1-1, and Zenit St. Petersburg managed to at least score.

The biggest surprises though were Getafe's aforementioned 2 goals at Benfica, Hamburg not scoring at Leverkusen, Tottenham still in their Carling Cup hangover, and Everton not getting off the bus at Fiorentina. I would also commend Marseille's victory over Zenit St. Petersburg (who upset Villarreal last round), but cannot considering they played in those peach-color kits again.

Oh yeah, and congrats to former Fulham man Steven Davis and once-potential transfer (thanks FIFA) Daniel Cousin on scoring last night. Its not like your respected former and future club need(ed) you or anything.
