    My Opinion – Teams to qualify:
    Group A : Paris Saint-Germain and FC Porto
    Group B : Arsenal FC and FC Schalke 04
    Group C : AC Milan and Malaga
    Group D : Real Madrid and Manchester City
    Group E : Juventus FC and Chelsea FC
    Group F : Bayern Munich and Valencia
    Group G : FC Barcelona and SL Benfica
    Group H : Manchester United and SC Braga
    P.S Y’all say that Utd got put in the easy group but they couldn’t even qualify to the Round of 16 and they were put in the easy group last season, having lose to FC Basel.

    I am a fan of the Red Devils and I pray we lift the champions league this season. For group D, 4get if it is Spain and and Germany! Good luck to man city!

  10. nicolo salami September 1, 2012 8:23 pm

    I will always remain a fan of Red Devils but I enjoy good football! Cr7 can still win the world if he humbles himself like Lionel Andres Messi. I wish Iniesta luck and pray he conquer The World this time cos He is an utility!!!

    hello noisy neighbours, let’s see how hard you can blow thru your a***. both german and dutch teams have almost the fastest team play in Europe. that’s the only way to out-score man city. Morinho, the special one, is used to holding pad, it’ll be easy for madrid. I’m interested in GROUP D. man utd may also be so unlucky this time at round of four. I wish chelsea play madrid this season in any knock-out stage.
    From my end, best of luck to the italian and russian representatives and other participating teams.

    Bayern Munich and Barcelona are the best teams in 2012/2013. Greets from Spain

  29. pete September 14, 2012 8:42 pm

    Just hope my beloved Arsenal sail through, as i expect. Podolski and Cazorla, will be key players.
    Also expect United to through..Now for the miracle, City to end up in the Europa League..Madrid to win group, with Dortmund second, having the better result against City. Win at home and draw in that toilet in Manchester..Arsenal are a cert for the semi’s this year.

  30. zuhyr lawan September 17, 2012 5:49 pm

    Whew huhu, the battle is soon 2 bgin, lets see who’s gonna b the winner

  31. B-Rob September 18, 2012 2:49 am

    Juventus are the sleeper team to win. Everyones hating on the Italian League but just remember how Napoli beat Man City, Milan beat arsenal, and Napoli only got knocked out by eventual winners Chelsea (the same team that beat Barcelona haha).

  32. BaLoNdErO. September 18, 2012 10:45 am

    I think Manchester United have a easy group and i think man.utd qualified without any problem
