OT Soccer Thread - Champions League Knockouts Time

I set the previous thread to stop comments around this time figuring this would be a good spot to kick off a new thread as things would be fairly quiet.  So much for that idea.  Anyway;

March 1 - FA Cup Fifth Round begins
March 2/3 - Copa Del Rey Semi-Finals second leg
March 8-9, 15-16 - Second legs UCL
March 17-30 - Oceania World Cup Qualifying tournament (2 groups of 4 followed by semi-final and final to determine berth in intercontinental playoff)
March 22 - Women’s UCL Quarterfinals
March 24 - Break for final World Cup Qualifier rounds begins
March 24/29 - UEFA World Cup Qualifier Playoffs
March 25/29 - CAF Two legged World Cup Qualifers
