Champions League Group Stages

Post by Crimey on Thu 29 Aug 2013, 4:19 pm

The draw is tonight and we could have some potentially crazy strong groups, Manchester City have a 50% chance of being in the same group as Bayern Munich or Barcelona.

What is the tie everybody wants to see in the group stages?

The stream is up now on the UEFA site Bull

I'd like Man City to get Barcelona

Nice Madrid vs. Juventus.

Manchester United should be fairly happy with Shakhtar Donetsk who have sold most of their best players over the past year. Although they are good at replacing them with relative unknown players, I assume they're trying to do the same with Bernard.

I'd expect Shakhtar to get 9 points at home, nasty draw I think.

Chelsea are getting it well easy. Mourinho will be delighted, can focus a bit more on the league until the knockouts.

Group C looks poor. PSG and Benfica surely through, unless Napoli join them.

All English teams could still get Napoli who are the real team to avoid in Pot 4 I'd have thought.

Celtic would be difficult, but I'd still fancy them to go out in the group stage. I assume Celtic will want Group C if they want the best chances of getting out of the group stages.

Manchester United and Chelsea will be very happy with that draw I'd have thought, Arsenal will be worried.

I would, they've lost Wanyama, Hooper and Wilson. Take it from me, they won't be as good in Europe this season as they were last season.

Group C is so crap. Benfica have been getting worse over the last couple of years, PSG should walk it.

They've brought in a few new guys like Markovic in the summer, expect PSG to walk that group though.

Real Madrid and Juventus get an easy route to knockouts, fight for the top spot there.

Celtic will be gutted, no chance of getting out of it. Will hope for some big European nights though.

Chelsea given one of the easiest groups possible.

Groups C and G are both poor. Only problem with having a couple of strong groups, means you have to have a couple of weak ones.

Think the Manchester United group is basically a banana skin group, should progress but the teams are good enough that they could suffer a couple of upsets.
