    Even though you've already added them in, just to say Sevilla crusied through tonight to win 6-1 on agg over AEK.

    I'm happy with the way our fixtures have fallen, we should do the business against Sporting, Rooney might even be back by then.

    Match in Athens was already 0-3 at half-time and AEK needed 2 penalties to score. Sevilla went through easily and reached the group stage. Let's see how well they will be, as they had no Champ.League experience so far.

    Five teams got banned by UEFA due to disciplinary actions of their fans.

    Anderlecht got banned with a 12,000 Euro fine, Fenerbache 5,000 Euro, Lazio 7,300 Euro, Dimano Buckarest 5,500 Euro and Crvena Zvezda (Red Star Belgrade) 6,000 Euro. All the teams have the right to appeal in 3 days time.

    AC Milan will start this season's Champ.League Group stage without Brazilian striker Ronaldo, as he stills suffers from a thigh injury.

    Don't think Sporting will be that easy. They have a good, young team and are difficult to win at home.

    I think that the draw could've been better for my club (Benfica), but let's see that..

    I think that this year, Milan will win again.

    I believe more in an english team. Barça are with difficulties, and Schuster tactics in the CL are suicidal. One thing is easy teams on the spanish League, other are sharks in the CL. But let's see, so many good teams, the result is unpredictable...

    Arsenal and United show Chelsea and Liverpool how to win in the champions league.

    The game against Sporting tonight was weird, it was just a big Ronaldo love-in, they were happy he scored and weren't to fussed about equalising.

    You don't know Sporting. That's normal.. But they said the loss wasn't fair, at least a draw was earned..

    They definatly could have drawn or even won, van der sar had to make 2 very good saves to keep the clean sheet.

    Yeah, I just saw the game most important parts, and If it wasn't for Ronaldo and Van der Sar, Man Utd wouldn't had won for sure.

    The most impressive result for me was Arsenal's 3-0 over Sevilla, I watched only highlights from that match, but Sevilla's players were simply 2 "gears" down in that match.

    ManUtd won Roma 1-0, a completely different match from last season's 7-1, but the most impressive win was Rangers 3-0 win in Lyon.

    Up the Gers, Lyon seem to getting worse, just at the same time they appoint Alain Perrin as manager....

    1-0 to the United, I'm not gonna say much about the game considering its the same as every 1-0 we've had this season, not much happens, other team threatens, we score, we win.

    Pretty strange to say the least results tonight in C.L. with both last season's finalists losing and Olympiacos achieving their first away win ever in Bremen. Liverpool was pretty bad tonight, hope they'll recover in Premiership.

    The Marseille goal was a stunner, I think it hit the post twice. Liverpool will still go through, they've got Besiktas twice next, they should win them both and probably be back on top by then.

    Only if we win them twice. The bad thing is that we're playing bad since the Euro qualifiers.
