I've been trying to work out the percentage chance that an english club will meet another english club in the last 8 of the UCL.

4 english clubs, 8 teams are left.

I made it to be 57.2% chance. I'm probably way wrong as i haven't done any maths in ages. Its definately not 50% though. Well i think it isn't.

So anyone doing maths A level / degree or anything know the answer to this?

actually i make it 77.1% chance of an english quarter final taking place.

therefore chances of an all english semi is very slim but we'll have to wait and see what happens

Hello,,


There are 3 English teams out of 7 that we might play against.. so it is 42.86 %
thats the chance of man utd meeting an english club.


i was on about the chance of at least one english clash

thats 24/35 + 3/35 so 27/35 = 77.1% aprox

chances of no english clash is there fore 22.9%

so 22.9% chance of an all english semifinal if all english clubs progress through the quarters and no english club has met another club in the quarters

40% of Man Utd being draw against a team is not the same chance as an English tie happening.

Jazz Hadi is right about the 3/7 but not right about the overall chance of an English tie happening which i think it 77.1%
