Gianluca Zambrotta has been in charge of choosing the balls for this Friday's Champions League quarterfinals draw. And after the event, many people on the nets started to speculate about a possible manipulation.

However, the Italian denied the possibility of handling the draw: "I swear that there were no hot or wrinkled balls..." Furthermore, he added, "I think Real Madrid can't trust they can win Wolfsburg easily."

As for Barça's opponent, he believes Atlético will be "difficult to beat," but admitted that "Barça is the best team in the world and it is very hard to play against them." He also believes "it will be difficult to repeat the treble, but this team is capable of anything."
