A few highlights from part one of this matchday:

Surprise in Glasgow: Rangers have managed an upset 0:0 draw against FC Barcelona and are on route to going to the quaterfinals. They're currently tied with Barça in their group. It's safe to say that Rangers has become one of the big positive surprises in the CL.

Goalfest in London: Arsenal FC has sent Slavia Prague with a crushing 7:0 win back home and equalised the CL result record set by Juventus FC in 1993, when they won 7:0 against Olympiakos Piräus.

For Stuttgart, a day to forget: The VfB Stuttgart has lost yet again, this time 2:0 against Lyon. Never before has a German champion started with three loses into the Champions League season, and with this loss, Stuttgart faces now an even bigger crisis and may also fail to get to the UEFA-Cup. Chances for them to make it to the quaterfinals are slim to non-existent. Let's hope the other two German teams do better tommorow.

Yeah i enjoyed the feast of goals yesterday, trophy or no trophy it is a joy to watch Arsenal.
Barcelona are stuttering, don't know what to make of them, they play well one day then have an off day the next.
Liverpool are showing signs of inconsistency in the league and champions league, we'll see how they and Chelsea get on today.



In Arsene we trust!!

Shhh. We Greeks do not speak of such occurrences. Like the Beckham goal in Athens.

I can't wait to see the Olympiacos match tonight! I'm normally a Panathinaikos fan but I can't not support a Greek team, especially when they're first in points if they win!

Dream on.  Wink

Anyway, I'm confident Celtic will follow suit and win today. Benfica shouldn't be that difficult of an opponent.

Seriously, it will be difficult for Olympiacos to win in the Bernabeu. If you lose, then at least do it with your heads up high, like Werder Bremen did. And speaking of Werder, they're gonna have to face another powerhouse today with Lazio.

I guess the most anticipated games for today are Milan vs Donetsk and Chelski against Schlackski. With CFC's current inconsistent performance, S04 could well win or tie. As for ACM vs Donetsk, it's pretty evident that Milan, even in the Serie A, is in a deep crisis right now. However, what surprises me the most is how Ukranian football has grown in these years, especially Dynamo Kyiv and Shakhtar Donetsk. Those two are teams to watch, because in a few years, they may reach the same level as the European majors.

And that with one player less, as Torosidis was sent off after some 10 minutes. But it is 2:2 now.

Nice performance by Neuer once more. They should consider leaving him out when they play against opponents in blue shirts... Big grin

And Bremen leads 2:0  cool

A damn shame how Olympiacos lost. They could have made history by doing so. Olympiacos lost 4:2, but they can still be proud, because even though they lost, they still played an excellent match and can leave the Bernabeu with their heads up high.

This is the second time in a row Neuer managed to have a Bock. Oh well, what's to expect from the Schlackskis anyway.

So, at least Bremen wins, while Piräus loses 4:2 in the end.
And some good news for Schalke: Trondheim beats Valencia.

Both groups not decided in terms of #2-4.

Quite an amazing dive by Robinho: Get slightly kicked in the leg, falls to ground, does 4 or 5 successive side-rolls, and at the sound of the ref giving Real a penalty jumps up and celebrates with the fans. Fvcking pathetic  Yeah sure .

Definitely glad to see Werder win, but overall the German teams still svck this season.

This is something I can't believe right now. I can't believe it, because Liverpool has a winning team, and Rafa Benítez isn't someone new to the organisation, or a rookie manager. What the hell is the problem with Liverpool anyway? They have been too inconsistent, while ManU and Arsenal are basically keeping a stranglehold in their respective groups with the way they have dominated.

It's ridiculous, isn't it? Look at the squad...Finnan, Carragher, Arbeloa, Riise, Aurelio, Alonso, Pennant, Benayoun, Gerrard, Sissoko, Mascherano, Kewell, Leto, Crouch, Veronin, Torres, Kuyt. ALL GOOD PLAYERS. Liverpool started the season incredibly well, but Rafa's ridiculous rotation policy isn't giving anyone time to find a 'best 11'. This is the kind of quality that wins leagues and cups and european championships, but Liverpool are just sucking right now. With the kind of quality they have, and with Rafa's proven tactical expertise, they should be topping their group and leading the Premiership. Instead, they are conceding goals to two-bit teams in the Champion's League and relying on dodgy refereeing decisions to gift them victories in the Premiership.
