    Talking of Kluivert and Zidane feels like it's late 1990s or early 2000s again.

    First repeat Champions League winners being Real Madrid would be fitting, but Buffon finally winning the Champions League would be a beautiful thing for football.

    Brilliant move by Barça gifting Dani Alves to Juventus and Sandro to Málaga so they took real Madrid the double.

    Zidane: overrated as player and underrated as coach.

    He is very good managing a very conflictive squad.

    He is a good leader and knows how to deal with the squad. The fact that he is a Madrid legend also helps. But he's garbage in terms of coaching. With that squad Madrid should play a much better football.

    They might win La Liga and the CL, becoming the first ever club to repeat, under his management. How the fuck can you be so biased to think there is anything more than can be expected of him?

    If he pulls this off he will become a much larger piece of history than Pep, assuming he isn't already due to a superior playing career.

    The 12th. Back to back UCLs and the la liga, what a season. Zidane's a master, a galactico for the galacticos he'll complete the treble next year. It almost feels that the throne in the bernabeu was meant for him.


    Surely now Ronaldo will win the ballon d'Or
    And let's not forget his rapid scoring to become top scorer in the CL, CR7 winning europe's best player award now is certain.

    Balanced draw. Juve-Barca is the definitely the highlight fixture. Groups C and H are the toughest. G is the most open.

    Why did Juve change their crest? This current one reminds me of the Kellogg's special K logo. It's terrible.

    WTF!!!! DORTMUND AGAIN??? well tottenham will be still playing at wembley so they won't be at their best. I hope so at least...

    Liverpool have the easiest group. Shame on them if they are eliminated early
    Same for City

    Madrid have a hard group..

    Took the liberty of changing the thread title so this becomes the permanent thread for general CL discussion.

    Expectations for matchweek one? Here go mine:

    AS Roma x Atl. Madrid
    Barcelona
    x Juventus
    Benfica x CSKA Moscow
    Celtic x PSG
    Chelsea
    x Qarabag
    Manchester Utd x Basel
    Olympiakos x Sporting
    FC Porto x Besiktas
    Feyenoord x Manchester City
    Liverpool x Sevilla
    Maribor x Sp. Moscow
    Leipzig x Monaco
    Real Madrid x APOEL
    Shakhtar x Napoli
    Tottenham
    x Dortmund

    Predictions in bold.

    Spurs match should be the most thrilling fixture out of those...too bad I won't be watching it because FC Porto.

    Wow, City dropping points would be a big result for Feyenoord.

    All the Portuguese teams undefeated is (H) , but definitely possible.

    Spurs' Wembley woes may be an issue against Dortmund. Imagine an Aubameyang smash and grab.

    Monaco are blowing hot and cold, so no one knows if they'll show up in the Champions League this year. Obviously Naby Keita and Timo Werner being in form spells trouble. I'm curious to see if Monaco's own Keita (Balde) plays. A Senegalese playing in the French league is normal. But a very talented Spanish born Barca and Lazio youth product making his Champions League debut is another matter.

    Speaking of Barca, it's hard to tell if they are ready to face Juve. I could see that match ending in a draw.
