Champions League Groups Drawn

Champions League Groups Drawn

Manchester United have been drawn in a tough-looking group F along with Sporting Lisbon, Dynamo Kiev and the stand-out fixture Roma.

Utd have been awareded aruably the toughest of all the English teams, which will see us travel to three difficult arenas.

Starting with Sporting Lisbon, and a reunion for Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani, and although the previos time we played them we lost (the match that infamously sold Ronaldo to us), i still feel we have a good chance of getting 6 points from the Portuguese teams, with their squad, though impressive in terms of producing young talent, are quite inexperienced.

Next up is Dynamo Kiev. Ukranian teams are noturisly difficult to play, not only in terms of their talent at defending, but also because of the terrain they play. Mid-December trips to Ukraine are ALWAYS difficult, and considering the cold weather, i think a point away would be a good result. At home, on the other hand, should see our quality tell and so i can see a decent 4 points taken from Dynamo Kiev.

And finally is Roma. Ah Roma, doesnt that bring back good memories, the 7-1 drubbing still fresh in United's minds. In terms of football, Roma are unpredictable and i think we showed last season, evean away from home where we managed a goal playing over half the match with just 10 men, and like with Dynamo Kiev, i think we can get at leat 4 points from Roma. It is off the pitch where the concerns lie, and the images from Rome withthe police battering innocent Utd fans sure to evoke more scenes of violence, and i fear if the police in both Italy and England dont control the event properly, we could see the sickening scenes we witnessed last year.

So, all in all though the group is tough im sure we will get through it comfortably, with a rough estimate of about 14 points, as i think we can win all our home matches and im confident we can go to Lisbon and win, and draws at Italy and Ukrain more than capable.

Here are the groups in full:

Group A: Liverpool, FC Porto, Marseille, Besiktas

Group B: Chelsea, Valencia, Schalke, Rosenborg

Group C: Real Madrid, Werder Bremen, Lazio, Olympiacos

Group D: AC Milan, Benfica, Celtic, Shakhtar Donetsk

Group E: Barcelona, Lyon, VfB Stuttgart, Rangers

Group F: Manchester United, AS Roma, Sporting Lisbon, Dynamo Kyiv

Group G: Internazionale, PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow, Fenerbahçe

Group H:
Arsenal, Sevilla/AEK Athens, Steaua Bucharest, Slavia Prague

It is one of the strongest groups, no doubt. We have to win our home games, that's the most important. I expect us to go through.
