    Ok, but we were beaten in 1/8, not in quarter-finals.

    1/8 and quarter-finals means same thing. And we were beaten in 1/16 phase, not in 1/8 phase.

    Or which year are you talking about? Last time Inter were in 1/8 phase (quarter-finals) was when we got beaten by Villarreal in 2005/2006.

    not
    1/2 final- semifinal
    1/4 final- quarterfinal
    1/8 final- round of 16(16 teams are competing)
    1/16 final- round of 32(32 teams are competing)

    So, we went out in 1/8 final.

    1/1 is not a final unless they decide to fight themselves.
    Thus 1/2 = final.

    Lol. How many teams there were in the competition when Inter was still playing? 16. So that phase is 1/16. We went out in that round.

    Semifinals is like "half-final", meaning that there are 2x more than finalists left, meaning the phase before the actual final. Quarterfinal is thus "quarter of the final", meaning there are 4x more than finalists left, meaning the phase before semifinals.

    Please people, get this simple facts straight first.

    Here is a clarifying picture from wikipedia:

    Yes. Quarterfinal is quarter of the final and there is 4 times more finalists. so. 2x4=8. Quarterfinals=round of the eight.

    That is what I've said all the time? 1/8 phase means quarter-finals, thus 8 teams left in the competition. I haven't written "1/8 final" at any point like you did.

    Jesus christ look at the picture from wikipedia I provided. Do you see Round of 16 there? Because I do, and CL has such round also.

    http://www.uefa.com/competitions/ucl...id=788373.html

    If you people can see (match calendar), there is First Knockout Round (Round of 16, 1/16 phase). Then there is Quarter-finals, then Semi-finals, then Final.

    This isn't as hard as it looks.

    final- 2 teams
    1/2 final- 4 teams
    1/4 final- 8 teams.
    1/8 final- 16 teams.

    We lost to Manchester/Liverpool/Valencia when there were 16 teams- in 1/8 final.

    Dude fuck Wikipedia. Look at me!! When there is 32 teams in a round it's called 1/16. When there is 16 teams it's called 1/8. When there is 8 teams it's called 1/4. When 4 teams it's semi final. And Final has two teams!

    No one has said anything about "1/8 final" except you. That kind of term doesn't exist. There are:

    1/16 phase --> Round of 16 (look at that picture I quoted, from wikipedia)
    1/8 phase --> Quarterfinals
    1/4 --> Semifinals
    1/2 --> Final

    Don't put that "final" after that "1/2" or "1/4" definition. It doesn't belong to there. It belongs to there when we use definitions "semi" or "quarter".

    I'm 100% Luka gets this when he reads these posts, but I'm really not sure about you two anymore.

    So you were just trolling? Or why did I have to enlighten you so much about basic terms and principles of a cup competition?

    I'm not fuckin trolling, you are just stubborn as donkey. It's fucking easy. Finals-Semifinals-Quarterfinals-1/8 finals-etc. You are making stupid points about 1/2 being final. What can i do with that? We can't understand each other. So, let's fuckin stop. Because you are not even remotely funny anymore.

    When they say "Round of x", the 'X' means number of teams playing. So the first knockout stage is round of 16(before round of 32) because there is 16 teams playing.

    With 1/x terminology, the X doesn't mean the number of teams, but the number of pairs playing. So 1/1 is the final, because there is only 1 pair playing left.

    So 1/2 is the semi-final, 1/4 is the quarter final, and 1/8 is the first knockout stage where there is 16(8 pairs) playing.
