I don't think I've ever seen a Group L before... unless the World Cup one day goes to 48 teams and lets teams like Solomon Islands in!
Looks like Everton and Fulham are in tough. Celtics have a fairly easy road with two minnows in their group.
I'm still cheering for Dynamo Bucharest! I may adopt them at the team of Straight Red!
