Champions League group stages begin today

15 Sep

The 2009/10 version of UEFA Champions League football is here!  The group stage kicks off today with half the teams playing today and the other half playing Wednesday.  There are some solid matchups today, including Marseille vs. AC Milan. Milan has looked lackluster in Serie A so far this year, but perhaps a fresh start in a new competition will give them some life.  Manchester United has no easy task ahead of them either as they play Beşiktaş in what is proclaimed to be one of the loudest stadiums in the world.

Tuesday’s matches
Atletico Madrid (ESP) vs. APOEL (CYP)
Beşiktaş (TUR) vs. Manchester United (ENG) – 10 p.m. ET/Fox Soccer Channel (Delayed)
Chelsea (ENG) vs. Porto (POR) – 2:15 p.m. ET/Setanta (Live); 5 p.m. ET/Fox Soccer Channel (Delayed)
