Champions League Schedule – Matchday 4

3 Nov

The second half of the group stage gets underway today and several big clubs have work to do if they want any chance of advancing to the knockout stage.  In today’s games, Bayern Munich needs a win against Bordeaux, while the winner of the mouth-watering AC Milan/Real Madrid clash will be in the drivers seat in group C.  In Wednesday’s matches, Liverpool is desperate for a win at Lyon after only gaining three points from the first three fixtures.  Spanish powerhouse Barcelona has struggled in group F as three teams have four points going into Wednesday.  Barca was “upset” by Rubin last time out, while Inter has failed to establish the same form that has them atop Serie A.  Check out the complete standings here.

Champions League – Tuesday’s results and Wednesday’s matches

30 Sep

Let’s see…on Tuesday, Liverpool’s defense sucked once again in a 2-0 loss to Fiorentina. (Another thing that I just found out: it’s the first time Liverpool hasn’t scored in a Champions League game in two and a half years – yikes) In other group E action, Lyon smashed Debrecen, 4-0. In group F, Inter was lucky to play Russian champ Rubin Kazan to a 1-1 draw after going down to 10 men in the second half. Sevilla and Arsenal both went top of groups G and H, respectively.

There are several good matches on Wednesday, including Bayern hosting Juventus and Wolfsburg at Manchester United.  The winner of the Wolfsburg/United game will have an early edge to lead the group.

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.
