As a supporter of none of these teams but mostly an EPL follower, I find the AC Milan v Spurs matchup interesting. Inter Milan aren't doing as well this year because Mourinho left and their manager is Rafa Benitez, who will be sacked soon enough in my opinion. Bayern Munich should win that matchup, and I think Arjen Robben just returned from injury.

Now, I'm always keeping an eye on Harry Redknapp at Spurs. He's the leading successor to replace Fabio Capello for the England job after Euro 2012, so he will be coaching England probably at the next World Cup (I know, it's far away but you have to think long term sometimes!).

I'm just interested to see how Harry tactically plays these big-time teams, and as an England fan, I'm generally interested to see how he does.

We don't care, but they do... they have never really competed in Champions League... we have been to multiple finals...

Huns getting smacked is something every freedom loving member of this plaent should always care about.

They are The Black Mark on Scotland afterall. Hell on all of humanity for that matter.

AS Roma vs. Shakhtar Donetsk
AC Milan vs. Tottenham Hotspur
Valencia vs. FC Shalke
Inter Milan vs. Bayern Munich
Lyon vs. Real Madrid
Arsenal vs. Barcelona
Marseille vs. Manchester UnitedCopenhagen vs. Chelsea

If I'm not mistaken, Real Madrid played Lyon in last year's opening round? They were beaten 1-0 at Lyon but then won at Madrid. I think Copenhagen could possibly (very slim) upset Chelsea.

Chelsea has been struggling recently, and although the January transfer window will surely see Roman Abromavich go on a spending-spree, I think I read in an article today that Barca (and Inter maybe? Some other team), didn't win in the group stage at Copenhagen. Basically, it's a hard place to play, and if they can somehow pull of a win at home and then a draw against Chelsea, they'd be through.

Hopeful thinking more than anything, I guess.

Yes, I do believe Barca tied Copenhagen in Denmark. It seems that each Champions League, there is one team that gives Barca trouble. Rubin Kazan last year and Copenhagen this year. I think Chelsea will return to the class they showed last year and earlier this year. As much as I'd like to see them out of the competition, they should beat Copenhagen IMO. Who knows though, they've gotten Lampard back and appear to be playing better they (like any other team) could lose a player(s) before January. I think they lost Alex a little while ago, not a huge loss but a loss nonetheless.

I like Celtic too, probably not with the fervor you do but being Irish-Catholic, it's my religious and nationalistic duty to root for the Bhoys and hate Rangers.

If what you say is true that Celtic doesn't care about the UCL, I think they should. Wrong or right, there is a lot of money in the Champions league. I forget what teams get moneywise but for teams at this level, its in the area of 30 million euros.

I was being facetious... their last manager just dismanlted a consistent European contender and now they are rebuilding...

they can't even hang in europa right now...

I'm not Irish nor Catholic... in fact I have every reason to side with Rangers in those terms... Scottish decent, non Catholic Christian... but I've always been a big Celtic guy... plus Jennifer Love Hewitts tits look rockin in a Celtic Jersey.

lol
