    Hope Austria Vienna make it through instead of Zagreb.

    Also it'd be cool to have Steaua back in the CL.

    I reckon Arsenal will beat Fenerbahce, Schalke should beat Kharkiv and I actually think PSV have a chance of knocking AC out.

    I think I'm looking forward to the CL this year more than I have for a while. I don't think Bayern will be as strong this year for some reason, so I think you'll get a lot of classic matches of equally-strong heavyweights going against each other. And then some of the smaller sides are still historically important... you've got the seeding all over the place so you could get some very interesting groups with implications on whether big sides get knocked out early or small sides make it to the knockout rounds.

    To be honest I don't really know how good or bad PSV are at the moment, I just think AC Milan aren't as good as they used to be.

    Pissvee played pretty good against that Belgian side, but don't think they're good enough to beat AC Milan.

    Steaua looked great last season against Chelsea, should have knocked them out the Europa.

    Fenerbahce against Arsenal will be brilliant.

    Dodgy away trip for Arsenal fans. Always a load of chaos when English teams head over there.

    I like Pacos Ferreira's chances against Zenit. Bet on the pair of them quite alot last year, Zenit always seemed to let me down whereas Pacos were pretty solid, had a few great results against the bigger Portugese sides. Should be close.

    Fenerbache's squad isn't as strong as recent seasons, Kuyt, Webo, Merieles should cause them problems plus there home crowd is dangerous a very hostile place for travelling fans. I've been there was the most uncomfortable 90 minutes I've had to endure

    PSV are a very young side. I think they fielded a team with an average age of 20 recently.

    Don't know if they have the experience to beat Milan over 2 legs.

    Paços de Ferreira lost their manager to Porto and some key players as well. They hired a crappy manager, no idea why. Costinha, he was part of Mourinho's squad you guys faced in the Uefa Cup final.

    There's also an important detail. They have a very small field - I can't call that a stadium - and therefore will play in Dragão. The only advantage they had - more used to play in a small field - is not there anymore. The only player having the home advantage will be Hulk. Not good news.

    Thanks for the update from Iberia :icon_mrgreen:

    I'm guessing you guys are automatically in the group stages? We'll probably draw you again :56:
