Champions League Draw

Breaking news…

The 2011/12 UEFA Champions League draw has just wrapped up. Check out the match-ups, and see if your club has hopes for advancing to the knockout stages:

Group A: Bayern Munich, Villarreal, Manchester City, Napoli

Fergie will use this as an opportunity to give his youngsters some Euro experience, and to pick up some delicious chocolates

Group B: Internazionale, CSKA Moscow, Lille, Trabzonspor

Group C: Manchester United, Benfica, FC Basel,  Otelul Galati

Group D: Real Madrid, Lyon, Ajax, Dinamo Zagreb

Group E: Chelsea, Valencia, Bayer Leverkusen, Genk

Group F: Arsenal, Marseille, Olympiacos, Borussia Dortmund

Group G: Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk, Zenit St Petersburg, APOEL

Group H: Barcelona, AC Milan, BATE Borisov, Viktoria Plzen

Barca are favorites again, but will have to face 7-time champs AC Milan first

All in all, it looks like a tale of two cities for one city… Manchester that is. United drew likely the easiest lot with zero teams from other major European leagues. Man City on the other hand ended up with three very strong teams, and is already being labelled as the “group of death”.
