UCL - Group Stage, Round 5 Thread

Champions League returns with Round 5 of the Group Stage. This could be a crucial week as the faith of some of the teams of making it into the next stage could be determined.

After suffering back to back defeats against Juventus, Gonzalo HIGUAIN will look to spearhead Real Madrid back into the groove with a visit to Belarus to face BATE. FC Porto will look to the inspiration of Lucho GONZALEZ and the goals from Lisandro LOPEZ in their visit to Fenerbache.

Though both sides are through to the next stage, Carlos TEVEZ's Manchester United and Gonzalo RODRIGUEZ's Villareal will play to determined which team will finish first or second in Group E.

Lionel MESSI and Barcelona will travel to Lisbon to face Sporting, a win which will ensure they finish on top of Group C. Fernando CAVENAGHI and Bordeaux will play host Chelsea in a must win situation for them.

The Albiceleste of Inter will also look to book their place in the next stage when they entertain Greek side Panathinaikos at home.

Here are the other matches: -

Day 1 - 25th November 2008

Aab vs. Celtic
Bayern vs. Steaua
Fiorentina vs. Lyon
Arsenal vs. Dynamo Kyiv
Zenit vs. Juventus

Day 2 - 26th November 2008

CFR Cluj vs. Roma
Anorthosis vs. Bremen
Shaktar vs. Basel
Atletico vs. PSV
Liverpool vs. Marseille

Higuain is injured.

Thanks for the info Alejandro. So looks like Real will be without their best two strike force.

Will see Saviola getting some minutes for tonight's game?

- HIGUAIN is injured, and not making the trip to Belarus.

- Saviola would actually start the game tomorrow, since he is the only option Schuster have.

- Lucho GONZALEZ took a red card on the last game, therefore, he isn't playing against Fenerbache.

- Villareal and Man Utd. aren't through to the next stage yet.

- Messi isn't 100% fit, and I don't think he'll start the game.

I would like to add few news tips:

** An Englishman tried To murder MARADONA.

- What a crazy guy, he still thinking about the 500P he lost from his gambling for England in 1986. Grow up English fans.


** Argentine fan (Colon) stabbed to death in the Argentine Apetura game.

- Am very sorry to hear those things over and over again.


** It is CRESPO's choice to join Madrid.

- It is true that he was a great striker, and he might still have some of that. But I don't know why he is playing "hard to get" when he isn't doing anything with Inter. Take the chance and prove your self. There are 300 strikers out there, and Madrid can get any of them. CRESPO and SAVIOLA would be great to see ;)

Saviola is likely to start alongside Raúl, as Schuster really does not have any other first team options. However, Alberto Bueno has travelled with the side to Belarus and may get a chance to debut in the CL. He had a few minutes in Saturday's league game and scored a spectacular goal in the Copa del Rey a couple of weeks ago.

Hello John,
Thanks for your message in my blog….yes, I am happy with the victory in the Davis Cup, honestly I think it was a miracle because the Spanish squad is not a secure team, but it was lucky about the Del Potro´s injury and well we are the champions…
About tonight, Real Madrid must win, there is not a excuse, cause Bate is a bad team-it played horrible some months ago at the Bernabeu- and about Villarreal, it will have a difficult game but I think that it can beat Manchester United, if all the players play 100%.
