Gareth-Bale-Champions-LeagueLiverpool will have a glamorous return to the Champions League after being drawn against holders Real Madrid in the group stage.

Five-times European champions Liverpool will face ten-times winners face Real as well as Basel and Ludogorets, in Group B while there was a familiar look to the draw for the three other English sides.

Anfield will be rocking when Ronaldo, Bale and company visit, but more importantly for Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, this is a group that Liverpool should advance from. It will be between Liverpool and Basel for second place, and that is a battle the Premier League side should win.

Manchester City have been once again drawn in the toughest group as they will face Bayern Munich for the third time in four years, plus CSKA Moscow and Roma in Group E. CSKA Moscow is never an easy trip and Roma is by far the best team in pot four. That being said, it will be an upset if City do not finish second in their group.

Arsenal will play Borussia Dortmund for the second year running as well as Galatasaray and Anderlecht in Group D. Gala is never an easy road trip, but I expect Arsenal and Dortmund to progress here.

In Group G, Chelsea will play German side Schalke for the second consecutive season plus Sporting Lisbon and Maribor. One again Chelsea get a favorable draw and should win the group with Schalke and Sporting battling it out for second place.

Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain will be the favourites to advance from Group F, where they were drawn with Ajax and APOEL from Cyprus, while last season’s beaten finalists Atletico Madrid are in Group A with Juventus, Olympiacos and Malmo.

Benfica, Zenit St. Petersburg, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco make up Group C while in Group H Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk, Athletic Bilbao and Belarus side BATE Borisov will battle it out.

Rooynen, is the best strike in barclays…wait to see the best strikes when they meet best team in the world

Fernando August 19, 2009 at 11:07 am

There can be no cheating in Champions league. There must be
transparency. Starting with the referees. Unspeakable
was the performance of the Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai in Lisbon
18Aug2009 giving the same disciplinary value to a aggression (yellow card), 2 fouls with a view to preventing gaming and goal (without punishment), and take the shirt off to celebrate a goal ( second yellow card). Unbelievable.
Impaired? Sporting Club de Portugal.

wenger barca has all it takes to win the match,but if arsenal struggles hard they can make it.

zakari harouna barmou March 22, 2010 at 8:16 pm

barcelona is the king of football.

leonar March 24, 2010 at 12:16 pm

They have the talent in world of footbal to beat arsenal, most importantly I would them go all the way to the final and thrash man united. I want Barca to prove the world that they are the best team in the world and to man united.

leonar March 24, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Barc has been and I will be best team for the next decade!

leonar March 24, 2010 at 12:20 pm

The is no other team that will stop barca from winning champions league

gunners March 25, 2010 at 11:26 am

arsenal will upset barca and prove all of you wrong…just wait and see

Alen April 20, 2010 at 7:12 am

Rooney10_PAKI April 23, 2010 at 1:14 pm

u can’t beat man utd,how will u beat barca

Abdulah March 25, 2010 at 5:55 pm

Arsenal will have a tuff game against barcelona i know that we are going to win home but away will be really tuff but we will se what happens (inshallah)

Philip April 7, 2010 at 2:40 am

Messi is no doubt the best player in the world at the moment . Last night’s 4-1 win over Arsenal confirmed what we already knew. This time however, against Inter they stand no chance. Inter will reach the final!!

Red Devils April 7, 2010 at 3:59 am

Man United can win tonight match.. i know they can. GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED!! miracles could happen

micheal April 7, 2010 at 11:00 am

it seems every body want to get to the top of this game but i tell u the only term dat has make it to d final is barca.

The Champions League winner, will be either Inter Milan or Barcelona. It is sad that they already meet in the semi-finals, because a final on a neutral ground between those teams would be AMAZING. One of the best defensive teams against maybe the strongest offensive team in Europe, for the time being.

I don’t think Lyon or Bayern will be capable of winning against either of those teams. The reason why I think they won’t be winning, is simply, that they haven’t been convincing enough.

Bayern were lucky to beat Fiorentina by an offside goal and advance to the quarterfinals, and even though they impressed me by beating united with 2 amazing comebacks, there were still alot of holes in their defensive line. They wouldn’t stand a chance against Barca’s offensive (Messi, Pedro, Iniesta etc.) with that poor defensive play. And Inter would win 1-0 if they were to meet Bayern in the Finals.

Lyon is a bit of a joker in my opinion, but I think they need that last bit, to be a threat against Barca or Inter (or even Bayern for that matter) I saw the second leg against Bordeaux, and they were seriously outplayed by them, and the only reason why they did advance, was because of outstanding goalkeeping. And I don’t think the goalkeeper will save them against barca, but against Inter, well maybe they’ll have a small chance (but really I don’t think that as a possibilty)

Well that’s just my bet on the Chl Winners 2010 :) And I will eat all of those words again if I’m wrong. (and sorry for spelling or grammar problems, I’m not English)

Have a nice Weekend

David Wilson April 9, 2010 at 5:22 pm

Totally agree with your comments. Bayern might be the weakest team to reach the CL semi-finals in years.

As for Inter v Barca it promises to be a great series. Arsenal showed that you cannot give Barca time and space to make all their little passes. You have to be stronger and physical as Chelsea were last season, and that describes Inter.

jack April 13, 2010 at 5:06 am

well only to stop barca is not by defensive it just by attacking and push them in defense by that only you can win inter defending 90 minuts to barca is sure that you are loosing this game so just attack them. if u don’t conceed a goal in first half then there is almost a chance to win the game. so best of luck to inter milan.barca its time to good bye for champions league

russel April 13, 2010 at 5:09 am

totally agree jack

Solari April 13, 2010 at 9:27 am

Intermilan all the way and i know we are going to beat Barcelona and also win the champions league this year

mesias angala April 19, 2010 at 11:36 am

huuuuh……better think back brother…………………

Solari Danny Amamoo April 13, 2010 at 9:29 am


mesias angala April 19, 2010 at 11:32 am

bra……i believe that your thinking is completely wrong….imagine on how will those unskilled defenders tuckle the magision messi

gtyhyh April 15, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Barcelona have beaten Inter and will again. Barca for champs!!!!!

cot April 18, 2010 at 7:48 am

inter siap berenkbenk’z barca

sagni April 18, 2010 at 10:53 am

barca will win the champion not only win semi final inter. inter is nothing .but, barca for all.

mesias angala April 19, 2010 at 11:26 am

barcelona for sure…………i strongly recommend the team to over take inter as they are more strong than the opposite team…

angel of mathematics April 20, 2010 at 2:28 am

Todays match is going to be a disgrace to inter. The fact is barca is full of experience players. Inter fans forget about this season, next season shall be a nice one. Up Barca

Philip April 20, 2010 at 3:48 am

Barcelona will be lucky if they score tonight. Inter will not only beat them but they will totally outclass them at the San Siro! Forza Inter!!

cornelius April 20, 2010 at 7:21 am

i belief to beat inter is to take control of the mid-field and feed the attachers even from the wings to enable my messi do his finishing job perfectly. i see inter as a no threat to us at all, with lionel whom i always reffer to as cornel, victory over vinter is what we will deffinately do. LONG LIVE BARCA.

chebsolo April 20, 2010 at 1:37 pm


Gabriel Nungolo April 27, 2010 at 2:47 pm

Well it is strong game which myself i call it a final before the final…. But realy can not say who will win because before teams are performing well and with the advantage that Inter has already,,,,, realy is something else but let wait and see the ball will decid…

Karl April 27, 2010 at 4:45 pm

Messi could be the best at this moment, because there are no real players that he can compete with.
He should be when the Master (Zinedine Zidan) use to be at the fields, and pretty sure he will stay with his mouth either open of foolness or with his mouth shut because he will not have nothing to show.
Who is the beter of goalkeeprs of all times, there was no goalkeeper for the Master he had beten all best goalkeepers, has Messi done that, well will see if he is good as much think on the world cup, Which I am pretty sure they will not get to FINALS…..

tareq (kalapur) April 28, 2010 at 2:40 am

i like mesi mesi mesi……………………………………………………this world cup football….2010…….will win ARGENTINA…..

dinho April 28, 2010 at 5:09 am
