Champions League continues today

28 Sep

Sorry I have not been the best blogger this month, but in all honesty, it hasn’t exactly been a super exciting start to the season, particularly as a Liverpool fan.  However, I vow to do better from here on out as my team doing poorly is really no excuse.

Anyways, the second set of group games in Champions League play get underway today.  Chelsea will be without suspended star Didier Drogba as well as injured players Frank Lampard, Salomon Kalou and Yossi Benayoun.  With the missing players, as well as suffering their first loss of the year at the weekend, will Chelsea be able to step up against Marseille?  Arsenal faces no easy task in Serbia against Partizan either as issues with the squad’s goalkeeping continue and a whole host of players remains out injured.  AC Milan has lost only once on the road in its last seven Champions League games and has won the last three meetings with Ajax, although the teams have not met since 2003.  Meanwhile, Auxerre is playing its first Champions League home game in eight years and they have to host Real Madrid, a team coming in pissed off after a 0-0 draw with La Liga bottom-feeders Levante.
