Kerol's morning's Champions League updates woke me at 5.30 a.m and quickly I rushed to open the TV and watch the highlights. Those are the results :

Liverpool 0-1 Barcelona (agg 2-2)
Chelsea 2-1 FC Porto (agg 3-2)
Lyon 0-2 Roma (agg 0-2)
Valencia 0-0 Inter (agg 2-2)

Teams in bold proceed to the final 8

Main hightlight is on Valencia - Inter match. The match ended with a draw but it was marred by a mass brawl on the pitch at the final whistle between both sets of players and staff.Internazionale midfielder Nicolas Burdisso received a broken nose during the mass fracas that ruined Valencia's Champions League success on Tuesday evening.

"A Valencia player went mad when he came onto the pitch and hit Burdisso," -Roberto Mancini. Based on the photo given, can u spot which one is the guilty Valencia player to punch Burdisso?
