The European Champions will start the campaign to retain their European title in Group E. There’s no AS Roma this year, instead we will be at the same group with Villarreal, Celtic and Aalborg.
While i don’t know much of Denmark’s Aalborg, Celtic is the champions of Scottish Premier League and Villareal was 2nd in the Spanish League last season. Celtic once beat us in the UCL campaign, while ex reds Giuseppe Rossi is the bomber at Villareal.
However, i don’t think we will face too many difficulties to pass the group stage although surprises will always a possibility. It’s the Champions League for God sake (even John Terry slips ).
But at least now the coaching team know who the lads will face in the UCL and concentrating all efforts to get our injured players back on the field to bring back our usual winning way.
It’s time for Zenit St Petersburg in Monaco on Friday at the UEFA Super Cup, we need to get the win for our 2nd ‘trophy’ of the season.
Come on Campiones!
