UEFA Champions League Draw - Group Stage

Group A: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Bordeaux, Maccabi Haifa
Group B: Man Utd, CSKA Moscow, Besiktas, Wolfsberg
Group C: AC Milan, Real Madrid, Marseille, FC Zurich
Group D: Chelsea, FC Porto, Athletico Madrid, APOEL Nicosia
Group E: Liverpool, Lyon, Fiorentina, Debreceni
Group F: Barcelona, Inter Milan, Dynamo Kiev, FC Raban Kazan
Group G: Sevilla, Rangers, Stuttgart, Unirea Urziceni
Group H: Arsenal, AZ Alkmaar, Olympiacos, Standard Liege

No Death Groups for the English Teams with three of them being extremely easy. Only Liverpool has a competitive group. I watched both legs of Debreceni and they were pretty organized and had alot of skill. They might surprise a few people.

Rangers got the easiest group they could have imagined. If they don't advance then they're just crap.

Group A and Group F probably the toughest.

  1. Group D isn't anything to sneeze at, either. Nicosia will have a tough time scoring any points in that group, and I can see Chelsea, Porto and Atletico Madrid just beating each other up during the group phase. I expect Chelsea and Atletico to advance.
